Public Interest Firms Sat.. Oct. 10, 1970 PRESS. Binghamton, N. Y. 7 . f W I WIAfMM Studying m . I Freeze Slapped On New Tax Exemption Bids WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service Friday announced that it has temporarily stopped granting tax exempt status to new "public interest law firms" and other groups that want to fight court battles on environmental issues, consumer protection "and the like." The IRS had already put off decisions on applications from some 50 non-profit organizations and law firms, it was learned, including the natural resources defense council and the environmental action coalition. Some of these groups reportedly have been left hanging for as long as eight months, hampering efforts to raise money or to file law suits. The IRS announcement said that applications for tax-exempt status would be held up pending completion of a 60-riay study to determine whether these "rapidly proliferating" law firms and groups were truly acting in the public interest. The action struck Washington, D.C., attorney Mac Asbill Jr. chairman elect of the American Bar Association Tax Committee, as a "not unreasonable idea, on the face of it." By deliberately instigating litigation on broad issues, he observed, some law firms could run into professional taboos against soliciting business. An IRS spokesman declined to identify the applicants for tax exempt status or to add other details to the announcement, which said the tax-free status of traditional "legal aid" for the poor and of "educational" nonlitigating organizations was not in question. Saying clear standards were needed to define "public inter-, est" for tax purposes, the IRS announcement also left open a final judgment on the deductibility of contributions made during the period of the (60-day) study" to law firms and groups already granted tax exemption by IRS. This was seen by some Democratic lawyers as an effort by Nixon Administration conservatives to slow the growing tide of litigation pushed by non-profit groups in housing, pollution and civil rights. , Cal. Judge Says Courts Too Tolerant SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) As workmen cleaned up rubble of a courtroom bombing, a Marin County judge blamed the courts themselves for "pampering criminals" and making it easy for them to escape justice. Superior Court Judge Samuel Gardiner spoke Friday while the P"BI and state investigators sifted debris for a clue to the terrorists who set off a massive blast the day before al the Marin County Civic Center. In a statement Gardiner said: "The courts brought this on themselves by pampering criminals and maximizing the opportunities to escape from justice instead of maximizing the mass welfare and interests of the public. "As a consequence, rebellious elements feel they have a reasonably good license to do what they want to do." He continued: "As a trial judge, I will nevertheless take the rules as they are given to me by the rest of democracy, including the higher courts." Earlier, in a discussion with lawyer William Weissich, Gar-diner said: "If anybody throws any bombs in, we'll throw them right back out ... I am going to say out loud that the courts have produced this era of violence by their era of tolerance. That is my opinion. I am going to broadcast it." Fla. Peace Measure TALLAHASSEE, Fla.

Susan Admits Tale Death, Jury Told LOS ANGELES (AP) - Susan Atkins once admitted she was the killer of actress Sharon Tate, a former cellmate recalls, and said "it was quite a thrill." Appearing for the prosecution, Virginia Graham Castro said Miss Atkins told of stabbing the bikini-clad actress and remarked that "the blood was beautiful, warm and sticky." Mrs. Castro, 37, a legal clerk then jailed for petty theft, said Miss Atkins, one of four persons on trial for the deaths of Miss Tate and six others, made the statements when they were in jail together last year. Miss Atkins has described the killings to interviewers and through an attorney. But she has not admitted" killing any of the victims herself. Mrs. Castro said she noticed Miss Atkins in jail because "she was always singing and dancing and had a kind of happiness that seemed unusual." One day, she said, Miss Atkins suddenly asked if she knew who did the Tate mur- Vice Index iCaps .5 I WASHINGTON (AP) -Spurred by a 6 per cent hike in the cost of fuel and electric power, wholesale prices climbed one-half of one per cent last month, indicating more trouble for Nixon administration hopes of stopping the worst inflation in 20 years. The increase was the third largest this year, exceeded by a jump of six-tenths of one per cent in July and eight-tenths in January. One effect is expected to be higher grocery prices. The increase raised the government's Wholesale Price Index to 117.8, meaning wholesalers paid an average of $117.80 last month for goods which cost them $100 In the 1957-59 base period. ders, then said: "Well you're looking at her." Mrs. Castro said she warned Miss Atkins not to discuss the killings, but ','she said she knew how to play crazy and act like a little girl and she said she had an alibi anyway." Miss Atkins is on trial with Charles M. Manson and two other women, charged with murde r-conspiracy in five slayings at the Tate house and two more killings the next night. Mrs. Castro's account to police of Miss Atkin's story has been credited with cracking the case. Earlier, the defense moved for a mistrial because of a banner story in the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, based on what it said was Mrs. Castro's complete written statement to the prosecution. The story said Miss Atkins told of a Manson family plan t o murder celebrities in-eluding Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton. Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones and Steve McQueen.

Questionnaires returned by 127 colleges and Court Clears Ex-Senator In Bribery WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge, ruling congressmen cannot be prosecuted for their activities in committee or on the floor of Congress, has dismissed bribery charges against a former senator from Maryland. Democrat Daniel B. Brewster. 46, hospitalized a year ago "fromconfusion, disorientation and loss of memory," was cleared of the charges Friday by U.S. Dist. Court Judge George L. Hart Jr. The Justice Department is considering an appeal to the Supreme Court. A grand jury indicted Brewster on charges he accepted $24,500 in bribes from Spiegel, Inc., a Chicago-based mail order house, in return for sympathetic votes on mail order legislation in 1967. Spiegel and its Washington lobbyist have also been accused in the case, but Judge Hart asked government lawyers to prepare arguments showing why he should not drop charges against Spiegel and the lobbyist. Other congressmen have been convicted in the past for misusing their offices to influence pending legislation.

Druas of Vestal: located EAST IN WESTON'S Goodell 'Be a Man,' Debate NEW YORK (AP) Sen. Charles E. Goodell wants a face-to-face confrontation with Vice President Spiro T. Ag-new to answer Agnew's bitter attacks on him. A critic of the administration's policy on Vietnam, Goodell said he wanted to debate Agnew on the "fundamental national issues he has raised ... the obligation of all Americans to respect those with whom they disagree." If the vice president "insists upon injecting himself" into the New York campaign, Goodell said, "then I ask him to be a man about it." Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller who appointed Goodell to serve the unexpired term of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy stepped in meanwhile with an attempt to act as peacemaker. He called for a "ceasefire" between his two fellow Republicans. Rockefeller, himself under attack lately from his Democratic opponent Arthur J. Goldberg, Friday termed "political rhetoric without any basis in fact" Goldberg's criticisms of the state's fight against narcotics addiction. "Once again the Democrats, using Mr. Goldberg as a dupe, are misleading the people with fiction and fantasy concerning a grave problem facing many of the young people of the state and their parents," the governor declared. He said New York State operates and finances the na-t i o n ' s most comprehensive treatment for narcotics addicts. The governor won endorsements Friday from two more Democrats Edward F.

Mark Rudd, Weatherman leader who is wanted by the FBI on riot conspiracy charges, reportedly was paid $1,069 for five speeches.

T w o other endorsements went to Democratic Rep. Richard Ottinger, running for senator. The politically independent Long Island newspaper Newsday called his record as a congressman "first rate," and former New York City mayor Robert Wagner gave him his "full and enthusiastic support." Meanwhile, Conservative senatorial candidate James Buckley collected an endorsement from the Transit Patrolmen's Benevolent Association when he went on a tour of subways in the city. Buckley called policemen the last visible representatives of law and order. New Bell Won't Get Liberty JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) When someone steals a Navy bell, there are bound to be repercussions.
