(Studio) New campaign financial law went into effect April 7. Republicans have maintained they need not disclose any contributions prior to that date. Common Cause, citizens lobby, sues to force disclosure under old law.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Republicans agree to release information on all contributors over $100 thru March 9. Will furnish court with information up to April 7, and record of expenditures. [Common Cause chairperson John GARDNER - calls it a victory for American people.] Says Republicans accepted settlement because they didn't want fin. chairperson Maurice Stans and former treasurer Hugh Sloan to testify in court [STANS - says contributors waived right of privacy.] Republican campaign director Clark MacGregor said last week disclosure was impossible as too many contributors had refused.
