However. results of criminal proceedings are inad—

irrelevant because the two respective juries operate
under a different set ofinsti‘uctions.

said. jurors have to decide only if a charge is likely to be
true or not. and a minimal vote of 9-3 is acceptable

Maximum judge minimizes sentences

Supreme Court without success and the only
judicial procedure left was Sirica's action.

Had the judge taken no action, then the con-
victs’ fate could have been determined by
President Carter.

Maximum John J. Sirica, the US. District
(hurt judge who was involved with the
Watergate case for five years, became not so
maximum Tuesday when he reduced the sen-
fences of some of the scandal’s big names—John
N. Mitchell, HR. Haldeman and John D.

Such reductions are commonplace in federal
cases involving perjury. A person who is sent to
prison for one year for lying under oath usually
ends up sewing about four months.

Sirica cut the Zlgyear to 8-year sentences of
the trio to a period of “not less than one nor more
than four years."

leniency in their behalf.

The campaign of Joe Graves has
taken onthat desperate appearance.
It haslost theintegrity that once was
its most salient characteristic, its
most refreshing attraction.

Last Friday, the Graves campaign
hekl a press conference at Graves
headquarters, conducted by Marty
Barth, campaign manager. Graves
was absent, she said, because the
statementto be issued was coming
from thecampaign, not from Graves
personally. Does she really think it's
possible to separate the two?

In her prepared statement,Barth
said it had come to the attention of
the campaign that while ABC

have presided over the issuing of
questionable and perhaps illegal
liquor licenses to friends of the

questionable conducton the part of

that a major news outlet attempted
to suppress and cover up these
alleged wrongdoings."

prepared a news documentary on

air sometime before the mayoral
election, but now may not be run
before then. The investigation and

Barth then said, “Why this story

about that. He tried anyway and

His movements were contortive

His body appeared to be filled with
an unnatural amount of fluid,

swelling to the point of tightness

But after he got into the song, the
paper was forgotten. He had made
this same gesture at other recent
concerts. Was he trying to feign an
indifference to the song so we
wouldn'tassociate ittoo closely with
him? Or was hetrying to tell us
something by eating our attention to
the sorg in this way?

The thinking was that he knew he
was dyingand that his friemls knew
he was dying, so that what happened
was much the same as what always
happens between friends when one is

was in their eyes.

incident is that the Graves cam-
paign made little if any effort to find
out why the story was not run. At
least three people at WKYT—TV
could have explained it — the station
manager, the program director or
the news director.

Ken Kurtz. news director for
WKYT, was present at the press
conference. In fact, the Graves
campaign called him the day before
to invite him to the cmference, but
did not ask him about the story.To
Kurtz‘ knowletge. no one at WKYT-
TV was asked. '

At the conference, Kurtz
responded indignantly to Barth’s
charges. The story was not run,
Kurtz said, “because our legal
counsel advised as it contained at
least six potentially libelous or

more proof can be found.

“AndParsons did not resign in
disgtst to my knowledge. Frankly,
he quit to take a higher paying job
with a mayoral candidate in
Jacksonville, Fla. A simple phone
call to me would have explained that
to you."

Barth‘s statement went on to say.
”There are powerful people who
evidently do not want the govemor
and Jim Amato in particular to be
embarrassed -— to be implicated in
possible illegal activity.

“Worse yet, they do not want to

on the West Bank of the
Jordan Israel is afraid that
the American eovei'nnicnt‘s
reference to “Palestinian
rights" primers an intention
to force the creation of a

seeking on the one hand to
persuade Israel that there is
no change in policy while on
the other, assuring the Arabs
that progress is being made
toward resolving the
Palestinian question.

Israel‘s reluctance to ac-
cept a Palestinian state is
understandable because of
past events. The PLO position
has historically been to deny
the legit i maey oflsrael and to
tail for a secular state in

Many Israelis survived the

These people think that the
only security is a strong,
militant Jewish state. They
also think a PLOcontrolled
state ill Palestine would
jeopardize their nation;
believing the PLO's spirit is
best typified by the murders

Nevertheless. the op-
portunities for peace are
better now than they have
been for some time. Last
month. Israeli troops invaded
the border regions of Lebanon
to force Palestinian troops
away from the area. A
potentially dangerous
situation was avoided when
both sides withdrew.

In another development,
PLO leader Yassir Arafat
indicated to ABC com-
iiiei‘itator Barbara Walters
that his group is ready to
arm- to [N resolution 242,
which among other things,
itiiara ntees the right of Israel
to exist as aJevn‘sh state.

Israel. for its part. has



increased the hopes for an
agreement by cracking down
on unauthorized Jewish
settlements on the occupied
West Bank.

Certainly Israel will have
no security until a lasting
peace is achieved. But peace
isn't possible until the rights
of the Palestinians are
acknowleged Arafat‘s PLO
willnot be satisfied unless it
has its own state,which was
part of the original 1948 UN
partition plan.

The Carter Administration

Carter and Secretary of State
