John Jenrette's Abscam trial he made a "mistake" in earlier testimony about his un-dercover bribery investigation of Jenrette and his co-defendent. But Jenrette's attorney, Kenneth al 1 for conspiring to accept $100,000 to sponsor a private immigration bill for a phony sheik and for offering to arrange a similar deal with Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C. . Amoroso testified last week there was no equipment available Robinson, charged agent Anthony jn Atlantic City to record a Nov. 15 Amoroso with lying about his fail ure to tape-record a key telephone call in the case. ROBINSON POINTED Out during cross-examination of the agent that Amoroso, who offered Jen-rette a bribe, testified last week there was no equipment available to tape a call with co-defendant John Stowe, when in fact, there was. Jenrette and Stowe, a former businessman from Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Richmond, Va., are on tri- Sex Attack Count Put On Officer By USA HUMAN Tennessean State Correspondent '' MURFREESBORO - Assistant Woodbury Police Chief Jerry Warta was charged with aggressive sexual battery here yesterday after a Murfreesboro woman said he tried to rape her Tuesday night. Roger Elrod, chief of police in' Woodbury, said he placed Warta on ' indefinite suspension "until the matter is cleared up." WARTA, 30, who lives in Mur-freesboro, was on his way home from work on Halls Hill Pike about 11 p.m. Tuesday when he picked up a 20-year-old woman hitchhiker, according to authorities here. . , "He was In uniform, in his pri-' vate vehicle, when he picked her up," said Sgt. t)avid Grisham of the Rutherford County sheriff's office. Grisham quoted the victim as saying she became suspicious when the officer pulled his truck onto Kittrell Road, then onto a gravel road. Warta parked the vehicle and allegedly tried to rape the woman, the sergeant said. "SHE FOUGHT him and got away," Grisham said, adding that the woman said her assailant did not try to follow. The woman ran to a house on Kittrell Road and called the sheriff's office shortly after midnight, officers said. District attorney general's investigator Randy Galloway, Murfreesboro police Officer Anita Davis and Grisham went to the home to talk to the woman, authorities said. BASED ON the victim's descrip- telephone conversation between FBI informant Melvin' Weinberg and Stowe about investing Arab money in a South Carolina munitions factory. . ROBINSON MAINTAINS that call was the FBI's first contact with Stowe after the FBI decided to "target" Jenrette in its Abscam probe in which agents ftosed as representatives of a ficticious Arab sheik seeking special favors from politicians. Last week, Amoroso said there would have too much of a security risk to have tape recording equipment around a hospitality suite set up in an Atlantic City hotel by the FBI to make contact with New Jersey politicians and businessmen. . But recalled to the witness stand yesterday Amoroso acknowledged there were recorders used to tape conversations in the suite, although there were no devices to bug a phone call. . TM TALKING about lying under oath," Robinson said to him during questioning. "No, I didn't," Amoroso said. ( Later, AmorosO said he had been ; confused when he failed to testify "HE'LL TAKE the money, right," - Stowe said. "But he '.isn't going to be specific about it. He's gonna protect himself all the way around. In another conversation, Stowe' told Weinberg that Thurmond could be paid aftef he introduced the legislation.' ; "He wants it, sure, but he will do it and trust ya for it because he doesn't want anything v.. no, he's not taking any chances," Stowe said. there had been recordings. "OK, OK ... I made a mistake," Amoroso said. Earlier, a tape recording played to the jury in U.S. District Court showed that Stowe assured Wein-: berg that Thurmond would take a bribe to sponsor a private immigration bill for the alleged sheik. ; .; But Stowe explained to Weinberg that Thurmond wanted to do it quietly to "protect himself all the way around." . LAST WEEK, Thurmond' testi fied he would never take any money to introduce legislation, and had never been approached by Stowe or Jenrette about it. He ij called Jenrette a "lying skunk" - for telling undercover agents he could be bought. As. the trial; entered its third week, the government played recordings : of discussions - between Stowe or Jenrette with Weinberg more than a month after Stowe picked up $50,000 for Jenrette. "LAST JAN. 25, Jenrette assured Weinberg 'that Thurmond would meet with him, but would hot talk specmcauy aooui tne payoii. we. to be mobilized and occupy the said he would arrange to get a ho- construction site by Sept. 20," said tel room for the discussion.

SumnerThermal Pollution Unit Gets DOE Grant GALLATIN The Sumner County . Resource Authority, has received a $250,000 Department of Energy grant for an experimental pollution control system for the $10 million garbage-to-power facility under : construction here, officials said yesterday, The grant marks DOE's first financial commitment to the project and is evidence that the technology being used here, first in the nation, is now being taken seriously by the federal agency, according to project engineer Glenn Swinehart. "WHEN WE FIRST got started about five years ago, TVA gave $90,000 for a feasibility study but DOE didn't take us seriously at all," said Swinehart, vice president of Sanders and Thomas Engineers. Since then, TVA provided a $2 million low-interest loan towards construction and the Economic Development Agency provided a $1.5 million grant. Several studies have been conducted on the practicality of the technology, which is in use in Japan, and the plant is expected to pay for itself. The facility will burn solid waste, Swinehart said. "The system we are getting will be the first to combine both."

"This new tower allows actual visibility of all operational areas of the field," Graham said. "The present tower has some blind spots in it." The contract award was announced in Atlanta by Louis Cardi-nali, Federal Avaiation Administration's southern director. The contract was awarded to Batteast Construction Co. of South Bend, Ind. GRAHAM SAID Batteast Oliver, city manager of Hender- sonviHe and newly-elected chairman of the Sumner County Resources Authority. THE AUTHORITY was created by the General Assembly and includes two representatives from Hendersonville, two from Gallatin and three from the countyy rat-large, in accordance with a formula for financial backing of the plant should it prove unprofitable in the future. "We recently received $6.5 million in interim financing from the ; First Tennessee Bank," Oliver said 'yesterday, "and we are in the process of working out our long-term bonding arrangement, which will be through the use of revenue bonds." tjaueast win suocontract a ma jority of the project to two Nashville companies, Harlan . Electric Co. and Rock City Piping Contractors, inc. " Actual construction costs are only $3.2 million, but the'building will house over $3 million in electronic equipment. PROJECT FUNDING comes from an FAA trust account that is used to upgrade control towers across the nation, Graham said, Although not a part of the $100 million expansion plan being considered for the airport, Graham said the tower would be located for incorporation in the airport's future plans.
