10 Hattocn Jo"ral Gazette Tuesday, Ang. 21, 1973 Former Ague w aide's diary lists payoffs , NEW YORKApT - U.S. Atty. George Beall in Baltimore reportedly has obtained a-diary of kickbacks and payoffs to Maryland political figures that was kept by a former aide to Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, the New York Daily News said Sunday. Quoting unnamed authoritative sources, the News called the diary a loose compilation of payments from contractors and consultants to Jerome Wolff, who was state roads commissioner from 1968 to 1968. The newspaper article did not say whether the diary implicated Agnew. Agnew was governor of Maryland in 1967 and 1968. WoKf was a vice presidential aide until 1970, when he left to become president of Greiner Environmental Systems, Inc. A federal grand jury in Baltimore is investigating Agnew and other political and financial figures for possible bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew says he is innocent of wrongdoing. Time magazine quoted a Justice Department official on Sunday as saying, "the department has no choice" but to indict Agnew. "At least three witnesses have told of delivering cash payoffs to Agnew. The evidence is so strong that the case must be taken to trial," the "official said. Time also reported that Agnew had sought to tap President Nixon's Watergate lawyers for help in preparing a constitutional defense that would prevent the vice president from having to go on trial, if indicted, while still in office. Agnew asked Nixon's lawyers to explore the possibility that the vice president might adopt Nixon's own argument that he cannot be prosecuted until after he has been impeached, convicted and removed from office by Congress, Time said.

WASHINGTON (AP.) - U.S. intelligence reports that North Vietnamese soldiers will bring their families to Communist-controlled areas of South Vietnam are regarded as new evidence the North intends to hold onto some occupied territory. Intelligence sources say the reports are regarded as fresh evidence the North intends to absorb a region below the old demilitarized zone that used to separate the two Vietnams. The U.S.-North Vietnamese peace agreement signed last winter did not obligate Hanoi to pull its troops out of South Viet nam. But American officials had hoped the North would gradually reduce its forces in the South, and that the future of areas those forces occupied would be negotiated by Hanoi and Saigonjiipjomats. However, negotiations between the two Vietnams have failed so far to produce any meaningful results, and reports to Washington are full of signs that Hanoi is nutting down roots in the South! U.S. intelligence sources say that Gen. Van Tien Dung, chief of staff of the North Vietnamese army, visited upper South Vietnam last month and assured local Communist officials that Hanoi's forces will remain there! To underscore this apparent long-term commitment, Dung reportedly said his married troops will be able to bring their wives and children from the North and that unmarried soldiers could invite their fiancees. Many, North Vietnamese soldiers have spent years separated from their families after infiltrating South Vietnam during the long war. This development follows per sistent reports that the North Vietnamese have sent thou sands of civilian laborers, .technicians and administrators into the South since me Jan. n Cease-fire. Pentagon officials- confirmed these reports and said -the North Vietnamese have been trying to set up a government structure, from the village level on up, to join occupied sections of South Vietnam to North Vietnam. The North Vietnamese seem to be turning the once remote area around the old U.S. Marine base at Khe Sanh into a major center of activity, according to reports reaching American intelligence. Even simple hands present problems in technique. Any competent bridge player will make five spades by ruffing his third heart in dummy; leading twice up to dummy's king-queen of diamonds and once up to his own king of clubs. Furthermore, there is no need to take any care at all since all suits break. Nevertheless an expert would surely give the hand some study before playing to trick two.
