-*w* BULLDOG Arizona Republic ix, flrars., June 18,1970 Corruption list asked destroyed United Press Internationa! BALTIMORE - U.S. District Court yesterday was asked to destroy a grand jufy's secret list of corruption charges against three politically prominent men after Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell prevented the charges from becoming an indictment. Mitchell ordered U.S. Atty. George Beall not to sign an indictment prepared by a special federal grand jury that has investigated government corruption for 18 months. He told Beall the panel's evidence "was insufficient to justify federal criminal prosecution." The grand jury's acting foreman, Warren Taylor, 28, has angrily insisted otherwise and earlier accused Mitchell of "blocking" the indictment. But the grand jury yesterday was helpless since it cannot indict without the signature of the U.S. attorney. A petition was filed in federal court Monday in the names of "John Doe, Richard Roe and Peter Poe." The petition asked that the secret presentment, or list of evidence, be destroyed and that all discussions concerning its deposition be conducted in private "to preserve the right of secrecy" of the three men. Judge Roszel C. Thornsen set a hearing for 10 a.m. tomorrow. U.S. Attorney Beall refused to answer questions yesterday. "I am included in this veil of secrecy that shrouds this proceeding," he said. The grand jury had previously done the investigating that resulted in the indictment of former Maryland Sen. Daniel B. Brewster on charges of taking a $25,000 bribe from a mail order house. However, the secret report of the grand jury allegedly concerns the construction of a parking garage for the U.S. Senate in Washington and overcharges by a Baltimore contractor. Reportedly the grand jury investigated certain public officials who intervened on behalf of the contractor. Southern Presbyterians reject quotas for women on church boards Indians get Associated Press MEMPHIS—A quota system for women on Presbyterian Church boards was rejected yesterday by the 110th general assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. The motion would have set a minimum number of women on various boards and agencies of the church. Its defeat was recommended by the Standing Committee on Assembly Operation. Defeat came on a voice vote in the fourth day of the weeklong meeting at the Second Presbyterian Church here. The Proposed quota list, however, was approved as a general I guideline on the recommendation of Dr. Harry A. Fifield of Atlanta. Considerable debate preceded the action, with the proponents of the quota system stating that it was the only way to guarantee women's participation in the church. The right to take part has been available to women for years, they said, but still very few women are nominated to agencies and committee. Dr. W. Edward McNair of Atlanta, a dean of Agnes Scott College, spoke against the quota plan. He said he did not oppose participation by women, but that he was against a quota system. The Rev. Charles G. Burton of Shreveport, La., said he felt anyone, male or female, should be able to participate in church operations. By imposing a quota system, he said the assembly would also be limiting the number of women who could take part. The assembly also approved continued discussions of the merger with other churches Talks with other denominations are to continue throughout this year, and a report will be presented to next year's general assembly meeting in Massanetta Springs, Va. The Economic Administration has approved a $172,000 grant to the Salt River-Pima Indian community, Rep. Sam Steiger f R-Ariz., announced yesterday. The funds will be used to build a water system to serve the Maricopa-Pima Industrial Park and to create jobs for unemployed Indians, Steiger said: : Airline ticket thieves nabbed LOS ANGELES (UPI) The arrests of eight persons smashed an airline ticket fraud ring responsible for the theft of tickets valued at $7 million, police said yesterday. In a series of raids Tuesday night in the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood, police said they seized 861 tickets and $10,000 in cash, as well as arresting seven men and one woman. Authorities said 9,800 airline tickets were stolen in four burglaries during the past seven months and that the ring's operations extended from California to Europe. Burglarized were the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and ticket offices of American, Trans World and United airlines. Police said several persons have been arrested for using the stolen tickets, including 10 members of a rock music group three days ago in Anchorage, Alaska.
