KNUTSON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The certainty that investigating senators have been lied to has become a major issue in a probe of a federal antipoverty grant intended to rehabilitate members of two Chicago street gangs. "If the stories that have been told here are false, everyone involved should go to jail," Sen. Carl T. Curtis, R-Neb., said Wednesday at the end of the fifth day of hearings into the Office of Economic Opportunity's $27,000 grant for the gangs. "Transparent perjury has been committed," declared the Rev. John R. Fry, a slim, intense Presbyterian minister who has been charged with encouraging members of. the Blackstone Rangers to step up criminal activity. "This is disgusting ate." contempt of the Sen- "I look at Rev. Fry right now and say he is a malicious liar," said George Rose, former Ranger "warlord" who has testified under oath Fry allowed his church to be used as a gang arsenal, that he allowed marijuana to be smoked there, that he relayed an order for the killing of a narcotics peddler and that he warned gang members of impending police raids. "I specifically and categorically deny each and everyone of these allegations," Fry told Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., at one oint in Wednesday's hearing.

Stephen Boyd "FANTASTIC VOYAGE" In Color church met in Chicago, voted to support what they called his "creative and courageous" approach to the solution of urban problems. They protested against what they said is the "manner in which the character of the Rev. John Fry has repeatedly been maliciously maligned" by Senate witnesses. Sen. Karl E. Mundt, R., S.D., echoed other senators in saying the church should hold its own investigation of the allegations before criticizing the conduct of the hearing before the Senate permanent investigations subcommittee. "We haven't maligned anyone," Mundt said. "But somebody is lying. If he (Fry) is guilty of 10 per cent of the allegations made against him, he should be defrocked and sent to jail." The senators heard these allegations Wednesday: —Mrs. Annabelle Martin said two of her ten children were solicited by Eugene "Bull" Hairston, 23, Ranger president, to kill a narcotics peddler whom she said Hairston accused of infringing on his gang's territory. She said she heard Fry tell lawyers he had provided for her he would pay her to take her family out of Chicago so her sons could not t etsify against Hairston. Fry denied all her allegations. —James L. Pierson, an investigator for the State's Attorney's office of Cook County (Chicago) said that during rioting that swept Chicago the Rangers sold protection to South Side neighborhood merchants. He said they charged ?50 to $150 for crudely scrawled signs, rearing the name of the Ranger vice president, which told all potential looters: "Do Not Touch!" Earlier, Fry denied he counseled the Rangers to engage in extortion. Unsolicited Loan Repaid With Liberal Interest PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - An unscheduled loan has been repaid at the Pontiac State Bank with liberal Interest, bank president Edward Barker Jr., announced Wednesday. Barker said the bank received $110 along with a letter explaining a teller had inadvertently given the anonymous author $100 too much when cashing a check last year. The extra $10 for the use of the money, the writer explained. But the Soviet leadership does not seem to be in the mood for that. Official press treatment of recent events indicate there are major worries preying on Kremlin nerves and inhibiting cooperation. The Soviet Communist par ty leaders obviously are fright ened by the possibilities of con tagion from movements for more freedom inside the bloc o European Communist nation and from the general fermen among youth and intellectual around the world. —They are worried by the progressive splintering of th Communist movement, by th increasingly independent atti tude of Communist-ruled Roma nia, by the "democratization process in Czechoslovakia, b ie failure of a large number of Communist parties around the world to fall into line behind a oviet drive for a world meeting f Communists. '-They are worried by the attitude of tied China toward the uture of Asia and toward the in Vietnam and they are worried, too, about the Vietnam war itself, The elephant-mouse complex apparently has been generated by little Czechoslovakia, a land of 15 million, whose recent development have thrown a scare nto the leaders of the Soviet Union, a land of nearly 250 million. Pravda and Izvestia these day carry articles which sound much like those of the cold war at its coldest. They single out three main enemies for constant attack: the "U.S. imperialists," the "West German militarists" and the "Israeli expansionists." Many in Europe are concerned that the Kremlin Will over-react to its worries, Liter- ami Listy, a Czechoslovak publication, recently quoted an East German Communist as saying that what is going on in Czechoslovakia is "counter-revolution." The source was quot* ed: "A Socialist country cannot afford to look on passively. This is in the interest of the defense Vermont Insists On Clean Socks MONTPELIER, Vt.
