Casey found
I to serve asr

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate
Intelligence Committee unanimously
concluded yesterday that William
Casey should remain as CIA director
but agreed to continue its investigation.
Chairman Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz.), told reporters after Casey had
finished five hours of closed testimony
on his past business practices and
management of the agency: "Based
upon the staff review to date, and Mr.
Casey's lengthy testimony today, it is
the unanimous judgment of the com-
mittee that no basis has been found for
concluding that Mr. Casey is unfit to
serve as Director of Central Intelligen-
ce."
BUT GOLDWATER, who has been a
leading critic of Casey, added, "The
staff will follow up on points that need
clarification." -
Democratic committee sources said
the probe of Casey was not over and in-
vestigators were still pursuing substan-
tive questions which could alter the
panel's preliminary judgment . of
Casey.
Despite the emphasis in Goldwater's
statement on Casey's fitness, one
Democratic source insisted, "the in-
vestigation is continuing with the same
aggressiveness that it has for the past
week."
AT THE White House, a reporter
remarked to President Reagan that the
committee "seemed to" clear Casey.
"They didn't seem to," said Reagan.
"They unanimously said-they wanted
him to remain as director o the CIA.
We're very pleased.
"I'm not surprised-because we knew
that those first wild charges and ac-
cusations had no substantiation behind
them," the president added.
THE COMMITTEE took little over
half an hour to reach its conclusion af-
ter Casey left the Capitol without
speaking to reporters.
Casey had arrived for the closed
hearing appearing confident and even

Casey
... investigation will continue
feisty after picking up new Senate sup-
port Tuesday. President Reagan's for-
mer campaign director has been under
fire for his past business dealings and
management of the spy agency.
The panel's ranking Democrat,
Daniel Moynihan of New York, said
there was a chance the process of
wrapping up loose ends could turn up
something that would change the com-
mittee's conclusion. He said the final
report will be made public. /
"There is a range of questions for
which full answers haven't been got
yet, work that hasn't been done, recor-
ds that haven't been fully read and such
like," Moynihan said in describing the
nature of the continuing inquiry.
Moynihan also announced that
Democrats on the intelligence commit-
tee have decided to hire their own
special counsel to work on the con-
tinuing inquiry with Fred Thompson,
who was hired as special counsel to the
committee by Goldwater on Monday
morning.

Today
Smaller, but better
P EOPLE SOMETIMES DEVELOP inferiority complexes, about their
height, , hair color, weight, and the like. But a whole state? "There is
somewhat of a complex about the smallness" of Rhode Island, Gov. J.
Joseph Garrahy said Tuesday at a news briefing at Warwick's Green Air-
port. He mentioned the findings of a committee formed a year ago to
promote the state's economy. The committee said it discovered "an attitude
of second-classism and' self-depreciation" among Rhode Islanders The
committee made a couple of recommendations. Among them:
* Launch a public relations campaign to include "specific attention on the
impact of local media on Rhode Islanders' attitudes about themselves and
their state."
" Begin an advertising campaign to push the attractions of the Ocean
State.
So, somebody came up with-a song. The song, produced for the state by an
advertising agency, makes no mention of Rhode Island's reputation as the
home base for the New England mob. It doesn't talk about the rash of
business failures in past months. You won't hear about the state's 7.i percent
jobless rate, either. The song, "The Biggest Little State in the Union," goes,
in part: "There's a special kind of magic, a place where dreams can grow. If
you've come to work or come to play, you're never far from everything no
matter where you go. Rhode Island is a place you'll want to stay." Q
Paying improper respect
T HE PRESIDENT of Centenary College in Shreeveport, La., has
decided to honor yesterday's wedding of Britain's Prince Charles and
Lady Diana by giving every British-born employee at the college an extra
half hour for lunch. "This half hour should be spent in sober and ap-
propriately Methodist revelry, roustering, skylarking, and ribaldry,"
President Donald Webb said tongue-in-cheek Tuesday. He added that Union
Jacks should be worn "whenever feasible" on the wedding day, and "the use
ofsthe English language should be encouraged among the fiatives." Webb
knows a good thing when he sees it. He is apparently the only British-born
employee at the college. le
