(Studio) Former Korea CIA director Kim Hyung Wook is talking to Washington, DC investigators, especially with regard to Tongsun Park, who he says was KCIA agent. This may move along probe that seemed to be going nowhere.
REPORTER: David Brinkley

(DC) Details with regard to investigation to date noted. Info. from Park's files and other papers, include references to Representative Thad Cochran, House Ethics Committee chairperson John Flynt, Vice President Walter Mondale and Senator Robert Byrd. Freshman Representative Bruce Caputo has pressed for speed in probe, but has gotten jeers from fellow Congmen. [CAPUTO - acknowledges reactions of other Congmen.] Justice Department probe is also hampered by Park's self-exile in London.
