Democratic sources should be listed," and reminded the regional directors that they were responsible for "seeing that applicants who were recommended" were clearly identified. Justice Department investigators found that job applicants with political referrals were indeed given preference in the scheduling of job interviews after initial tests were passed. The interviews were often mere formalities; putting politically referred applicants at the head of the fine meant that they were virtually assured of landing one of the limited number of jobs. In mid-March, the Census Bureau revised its Jan. 25 memo, deleting the offensive paragraph and the other references to political preference. The agency also modified the way in which job interivews were scheduled. A White House attorney told my associate Tony Capaccio the Census Bureau "decided to make the change out of an abundance of caution" to "show that it was operating within all the aoolicable laws." BRUISED EGO: The late FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's well-known self-esteen was nourished assiduously by yes-men in the agency's lower echelons. His egomania, and its slavish cultivation by underlings, was far advanced even by 1936, according to FBI files which have just surfaced. The prestigious Poor Richard Club of Philadelphia--The oldest advertising club in the country--invited Hoover to appear at a weekly meeting and accept a silver medal. He immediately ordered his G-men on the scene to check out the situation. The agent-in-charge at Philadelphia wrote the boss that the club's reputation was "splendid." But he advised that Hoover hold out for the club's annual gold medal, awarded annually to the most outstanding American. "A silver medal, while it carries considerable weight, in my frank opinion, does not do justice to the Director," the agent-in- charge wrote. Hoover readily agreed. But poor Edgar never was offered Poor Richard's gold medal. GRANT GAMES:The Carter White House continues to punish congressional supporters of Sen. Ted Kennedy's presidential bid. Sen. George McGovern, D-S.D., as staunch Kennedy man, recently helped the city of Sioux Falls get a $1.8 million grant from the Housing and Urban Development Department. But HUD officials called Rep. Thomas Daschle, D-S.D., to let him make the announcement. Daschle hadn't worked on the grant, so he notified McGovern. When a McGovern aide called HUD for confirmation, an agency official denied the grant had been made. Not until the McGovern man identified Daschle as the source of his information did the embarrassed HUD official confirm that the grant had indeed been made. WATCH ON WASTE: Since 1969, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration has handed out some $278 million in grants and loans to individuals who plan to pursue careers in the criminal justice field. Of those who have been dunned for their loans, the majority haven't paid back Uncle Sam and about $18.2 million of the taxpayers' money will go uncollected. In addition, LEAA has a practice of writing off loans to persons who actually persevere in their law-enforcement careers. But a recent study showed that many of the loan recipients had strayed far afield. One, for exmaple, wound up in the Agriculture Department, another went into consumer affirs, and a third was working for an animal welfare society. CORRECTION: In a recent column, we said Sen. Donald Stewart, D-Ala., had received $11,500 from the American Family Life Insurance Co. Political Action Committee. The company's correct name is American Family Life Assurance Co. j Washington | 1 Merry-Go-Round [ V.-:V.v.::\?:"ffff:Vffff-XW^ WASHINGTON--Twice within a year, the White Hosue was explicitly warned that it is a crime to buy political support with the taxpayers' money. The first admonition was ignored, the second was quietly heeded. I've already detailed the way Jimmy Carter played Lady Bountiful with federal grants to key states and localities shortly before crucial primaries and caucuses. This deliberate use of government largesse to beat back Ted Kennedy's challenge came despite a clear warning in March 1979, from White House Counsel Robert Lipshuti that such grantsmanship was illegal. It is a crime, Lipshutz wrote in a memo to the White House staff, for "anyone with grant-making authority to use that authority in order to affect the nomination or election of a candidate " In the same memo, Lipshutz wrote: "It is also a crime for anyone to promise return for political support for a particular candidate." The latter part of the warning was so openly brushed aside in the parceling out of Census jobs this year that even Justice Department attorneys became alarmed They informally warned the White House and the Census Bureau last March that their systematic policizing of the Census recruitment process might violate the criminal code. The hiring procedure was then quietly modified. What caught the Justice Department's eye was the White , Hosue system for doling out temporary census-taking jobs. One Census Bureau memo, dispatched to all the bureau's regional directors last Jan. 25, stated baldly: "Throughout the recruiting process, preference will be given to candidates recommended by the political party of the incumbent Administration." This blatant battle cry for a return to the spoils system was followed by specific instrucitons. The memo indicated the specific government form on which "all recommendations from Girl Scout News Third Camp Session at Camp Woodland Sunday, July 6 will be the opening day for Session III for resident camping at Camp Woodland, the Midland Empire Girl Scout Council camp located five miles south of Albany.
