(UPI Photo) Mondale, In The Action But Out Of Limelight 1 WASHINGTON (UPI) — The press contingent that followed his every move during the campaign is gone, and when President-elect Jimmy Carter is around, Walter Mondale stands on the sidelines — barely noticed and seldom photographed. '.. But even though the Vice President-elect is out of the limelight, he's definitely in on the action as Carter prepares to take over the White House. When Mondale was interviewed for the vice presidency, he told Carter he had no intention of giving up his Senate seat if the new job v|ere merely ceremonial and ndrsubstantive. ' ' When Carter selected Mondale, he called the Minnesota senator the person best qualified to succeed him as president if need be, and promised Mondale would have an active role in a Carter administration. With the Carter take-over just over a month away, Mondale's closest associates are confident the Georgian will make good on his promise to give Mondale something substantive to do, "All we have right now are indications," one aide confided recently, "but all the indications are good. He's in on everything there is to be in on." Throughout the transition, Mondale has been at Carter's side during interviews with prospective cabinet appointees, meetings with groups such as business, labor, mayors and governors and high-level briefings on the nation's economy, defense and national security. On numerous occasions, Mondale has left Washington on short notice to join Carter in Plains for strategy and policymaking sessions, as he did Wednesday when he and Sen. Henry Jackson, D-Wash., were summoned for energy discussions. They talk extensively — in person and on the telephone. During one recent transition / Kansas Ethics Commission On Two Complaints .rTOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission Wed- •nesday dismissed a complaint .against one legislative can- .didate and took another under advisement. In its first public hearings • on formal complaints of .campaign finance law .violatipns, the commission .dismissed a complaint against Hyman Jarrett of Kansas •City, Kan., a candidate in the 4th Senatorial District. Jarrett explained he had announced his withdrawl from the race, by a newspaper notice, shortly after filing. • However, he could not of• ficially withdraw until after ,the primary election. .Although the Kansas Citian moved out of the district, he won the primary. After "the secretary of state certified his Win, he withdrew by official letter and district Republicans appointed a new candidate. He said there was no reason to appoint a treasurer and he spent only $75 to file for the office. , Commission attorney Dennis Prater said although the facts showed Jarrett had been "grossly, wantonly, and disgustingly negligent," the complaint should be withdrawn because intent not to file could not be reasonably established. The complaints before the commission Wednesday alleged candidates failed to appoint treasurers or campaign committees and notify the secretary of state within 20 days of filing as a candidate. In most cases, the defendants also failed to make timely campaign finance reports to the secretary of state. Violations of the act are a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum one year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The commission took under advisement Prater's recommendation it find cause that Matt Greene of Wichita, an 89th District House candidate, intentionally violated the act. , The commission is to meet Monday to make a final ruling. If the panel approves the finding of intentional failure to file, Greene would have 10 days to request a new hearing. If the commission finds against Greene, it turns the matter over to the county or district attorney and the attorney general for action. Prater said facts in the Greene case indicate he was advised several times by certified mail to file and that he intentionally ignored notices. Prater, said intent not to file must be proven for conviction. The commission postponed consideration of complaints against Clarence Heckle of Liberal, an unsuccessful 125th House District candidate, and Tom Hart Sr. of Lawrence, an unsuccessful House candidate from the 44th District.

A news conference Wednesday to report on the commission's three-month investigation was crowded with officers in uniform, including many generals with most wearing the class rings that Army legend says eases the way to promotion and honor. Frank Borman, astronaut, class of 1950; Gen. Harold K. Johnson, retired Army chief of staff, class of 1933, and the other four members of the commission told the Army how the honor code hns changed since they left West Point: —An 18-year-old freshman cries during "beast barracks" summer indoctrination. He lies, saying he just learned his parents were in an auto accident. He is convicted by a cadet honor committee, but the expulsion was overturned. Honor committee members resign in fury, and the cadet is threatened with physical violence. —A cadet who said he did 10 pullups, although he only did two, was expelled. The commission recommended that the 121 cadets who left West Point during the cheating scandal be allowed to return immediately, not within a year, as Army Secretary Martin R. Hoffmann recommended. A total of 116 have already asked to be readmitted. Hoffmann was present at the Pentagon news conference. "The cadets did cheat, but were not solely at fault," Borman wrote. session in Washington, Mondale sat in on meetings from 8 a.m. until 9:30 p.m., then stayed on for 45 minutes longer for a private chat with Carter. "He's been deeply involved in this cabinet selection process," said Dick Moe, who was Mondale's campaign manager and now is a member of the main transition team. "But his work (during the transition) has been across the board. He's been sitting in on the interviews and giving his advice to Carter in private. There's good communication between the two." In making cabinet appointments, Carter "looks to a number of people for advice and Mondale is one," Moe said. Sometimes Carter accepts Mondale's advice and sometimes he.rejects it, "but the decision is ultimately his own." Moe said Mondale and Car tec. talk about his role but have not yet settled on specific duties. He sees Mondale taking an active role in both domestic and foreign affairs but adds, "we're in no hurry" to have the job defined. "It would be very premature to say what areas they're talking about because it's not resolved, but everyone agrees it will be an important role," Moe said. He said Mondale is "in very good spirits and very excited about the prospects of the new administration." Tempo Great sounds, great prices!
