Billy's agent
registration nOt
unusual, says
gov't attorney

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senators:
trying to determine if Billy Carter got
kid glove treatment from the Justice.
Department were told by a government
lawyer yesterday that it commonly
takes months to persuade some people
to register as agents of a foreign power.
"Many times it is at the door of the
courthouse that voluntary registration
is made... That is not unusual in this
field," said Robert Keuch, an associate
deputy attorney general.
specisl Senate subcommittee in-
vestigating the Billy Carter affair, said
the case involving the president's
brother was not unusual. The depar-
tment forced Billy Carter to register as
an agent of the radical Libyan regime
on July 14, settling an investigation of
the president's brother without filing
any criminal charges.
Keuch said over the last 17 years the
Justice Department has filed no
criminaJ charges in similar cases "in-
volving solely a violation of the Foreign
Agents Registration Act."
Elsewhere, it was learned the Justice
Department's internal investigation of
Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti
will look into his handling of U.S. in-

telligence reports that revealed Billy
Carter received money from Libya.
CIVILETTI acknowledged yesterday
he received the intelligence reports
about Billy Carter's financial dealings
with the Libyans during the Justice
Department invetigation of the
president's brother. But he did not give
the information to department in-
vestigators until they had discovered it
from other sources.
The Justice Department's internal
watchdog unit, the Office of
Professional Responsibility, opened its
investigation of the attorney general af-
ter he disclosed on July 25 he had
discussed the Billy case with President
Carter before the department closed
the case.1
Meanwhile, the special Judiciary
subcommittee investigating the ad-
ministration's handling oflthe case also
was reported ready to ask James Neal,
a former Watergate special prosecutor,
to steer the investigation as the panel's
chief counsel.
Members of the subcommittee met
privately with Neal, the acknowledged
first choice of the panel's Republicans.
,Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) said Neal
is "a strong, leading candidate" for the

Check your soul, sir?
A service station in Kansas City, Kansas taken over by the Pleasant Green
Baptist Church dispenses soul as well as fuel. The attendants-all church
volunteers-say, "Thank you. Jesus Christ loves you," to all departing
customers. In fact, "Jesus Christ Loves You" is the name of the operation.
"This is a full service station," said the Rev. David Grey, pastor of the 113
year-old congregation. "We will pump your gas, clean your windows, and
check your oil. We'll stress kindness, consideration and courtesy. We feel if
you extendsomeone a courtesy, he'll pass it on to someone else." The station
opened July 27. Proceeds go toward keeping the church's 14-bus fleet rolling
throughout the metropolitan area. Q
Helter Skelter in the hyacinths
Former cult leader Charles Manson has emerged from a decade of
solitary confinement to work as a gardener and maintenance man at the
Protestant chapel in California's Vacaville State Prison. "It's taken 10 years
to get a breath of fresh air; I'm not about to do anything that will screw it
up," Manson, 45, told an interviewer Tuesday. Protestant chaplain Nick
Ristad is in charge of supervising Manson's work and said he was pleased to
see him get a chance for a more normal life in the prison. Manson is still
housed in a special security area, however. Since his imprisonment at
Vacaville in 1971, Manson has been out of the psychiatric ward several times
and his activities have been under close supervision. Prison officials recen-
tly decided his behavior earned him a chance to be placed on a job assign-
ment. On the outside
