House panel summons 1980 Reagan volunteer

A House subcommittee summoned a 1980 Reagan campaign volunteer for more questions, following disclosures he had identified two GOP supporters as giving him inside information from the Carter White House.

Subcommittee investigators hope that tracing the sources of material turned over to former Reagan volunteer Wayne Valis will provide a clue as to how the Reagan campaign obtained material prepared for then-President Jimmy Carter's use in his televised debate with Ronald Reagan.

Sources said the FBI has already interviewed the two men Mr. Valis identified as the sources of the material - John Lenczowski, now a National Security Council staff member, and Robert Leahy, a Washington public relations executive.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter said the campaign controversy should not keep President Reagan from seeking reelection.
