Park Work Slated POLITICAL LOANS Wheatley Continues National Bank Probe In Poverty Areas HOUSTON (AP) -City coun- oilmen Tuesday approved plans lor Improvingfive parks in predominantly poverty areas. They told W. G. Scheibe. director of parks and recreation, he could spend more than $275,000 for the project. SAN ANTONIO (AP) - One month after the indictment of a local bank prompted a flurry of protests, federal officials said Tuesday they are probing only those loans made to political candidates by national banks. U.S. Atty. Seagal Wheatley said state banks are not being investigated "at this time." But he warned they cannot make contributions to candidates for federal offices. A federal grand jury indicted San Antonio's Frost National Bank last month on a charge of making a $7,500 loan to a 1970 campaign fund for Gov. Preston Smith. Smith and other officials protested the indictment vehemently. The governor said it was politically motivated. "Only loans made by national banks to candidates or candi- dates'committees willbe Investigated," Wheatlev said in a statement issued jointly with Texas' three other U.S. attorneys. "Loans heretofore made 1>y state banks to candidates in the ordinary course of business will not be Investigated." The loans "must have been made for political purposes," Wheatley said, adding that no national bank loan made before the 1970 elections will be investigated. State banks, he said, "should be reminded that as corporations they are prohibited from making contributions to candidates for federal offices." The investigation will center on national banks because they are specifically mentioned under federal law as prohibited from making such loans, Wheatley said. National banks previously had received instructions to this effect whereas state banks had not, he said. mmKS sanm nsas rafiSfi mmm igH 3 Miss Paper?
