Krom I PI rtporu
PEKING - Secretary of State Cyrus Vance held
talks Wednesday with China's newly rehabilitated
Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping, but final agreement on
normal relations was still held up because of the
U.S. spokespersons said the two meetings between
Vance and Teng. who survived his second purge and
was restored to the Chinese leadership only last week,
had gone "better than we expected." The talks ran an
hour overtime. '
Teng said China wanted normal relations between
the two countries, but diplomatic sources indicated
that normalization would not come during Vance's
The sources said the issue of U.S. ties with Taiwan
was still the main stumbling block to such an
U.S. officials expressed hope that the meeting with
Teng would lead to a meeting Thursday with Hua
Kuo-feng, the recently confirmed successor to the late
Mao Tse-tung as party leader.
So far there has been no invitation for Vance to
meet Hua, and U.S. officials said privately a Vance
Hua meeting would be an indication of the success or
failure of the mission.
Jaworskl Ethics Committee meet
WASHINGTON Leon Jaworski, new chief
investigator for the House inquiry into South Korean
influence buying in Congress, met Wednesday for the
first time with the House Ethics Committee.
Jaworski, a former Watergate prosecutor, drew
some parallels between the two investigations and
advised anyone involved to come forward voluntarily.
Jaworski made the comments before he and 10 of
the committee's 12 members - called back to
Washington by John Flynt. IMia.. committee
chairperson, midway through Congress' summer
recess went into private session for their first
meeting since his appointment over a month ago.
- (Meanwhile in Seoul. South Korea. Korean
millionaire Tongsun Park refused Wednesday to meet
with investigators, denied any connection with alleged
bribery of U.S. Congressmen and accused the U.S.
Justice Department of "gross exaggerations."
(Park, breaking a 10-month silence on the scandal,
told a news conference that his dealing within the
United States were only "on my personal account as a
private businessman" and said the American press had
subjected him to "injustice and mistreatment.")

memorial proposal for
Kent State campus site
CINCINNATI (UPI) - The U.S. 6th
Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday
dismissed a suit filed by a Kent State
University student group seeking to prevent
construction of a gymnasium on a campus
site near where four students were killed in
' 1970 during anti-war demonstrations.
The court ruled it had no authority to
delay construction in the area where Ohio
National Guardsmen killed four students
May 4, 1970.
"We have been cited no statute conferring
jurisdiction of this case upon the federal
judiciary, nor to any court decision holding
that jurisdiction exists in the circumstances
here presented," the three-judge panel wrote
in an unsigned opinion.
The judges decided their opinion would
not take effect until 10 days after its filing"so
as to provide the May 4th Coalition with an
opportunity to make an application for a
stay with the U.S. Supreme Court."
Construction in the disputed area had
been halted by a lower court decision.
Coalition attorneys William Kunstler and
Anthony Walsh said they would file an
appeal with the U .S. Supreme Court as soon
The appeals court emphasized it was not
deciding the case on its merits "since there is
no showing of any violation of federal law or
impairment of rights guaranteed by the
The ruling, in effect, upheld a decision by
U .S. District Court Judge Thomas Lambros
of Cleveland, who had found federal courts
lacked authority in the matter.
"Clearly the executive and legislative
branches of government, as well as the
university's board of trustees, possess power
in regard to the redress of these grievances,"
the appeals court declared. "Our holding of
lack of jurisdiction in the federal courts in no
way alters the rights of the coalition to
continue peaceably to seek resolution of
their grievances in any or all forms named."
The five-page decision was handed down
just six hours after a hearing on the dispute
The student protest group had asked the
court to delay construction of the gym until
the Interior Department could decide
whether to declare the site of a national
Since the proposed memorial site is on
state land, the department has no authority
to establish a landmark there unless state
officials cooperate, another coalition
attorney, Anthony Walsh, admitted.
Kunstler, calling the site "sacred ground,"
told the three-judge panel the dispute is a
"unique situation a site which is going to
be covered by a massive building, unless the
Interior Department can act."
Department experts currently are
considering the site of the May 4. 1970
Much of the arguments during
Wednesday's hearing focused on whether
federal courts have any authority to order a
delay of construction.
"There is no federal jurisdiction and there
never has been." argued Kent State attorney
Stephen Parisi. He also said the construction
area "is not on the site of the shootings. It is
next to it." "
"We've had this project held up for five
weeks now," Parisi shouted. "As you hold it
up, day-by-day, the project becomes more in
Reacting to the arguments, Judge George
Edwards sternly told Parisi. "Don't be so
impatient with the federal government. It
was federally supplied arms that provided
the bullets which killed the students. This
issue is not so easy to put away."
