Two cited in sex probe say they will not resign

Two congressmen cited for sexual misconduct with teen-age pages have said they will not resign. Rep. Daniel Crane (R) of Illinois apologized to his constituents for his relationship with a congressional page in 1980, saying he made a ''mistake.'' Rep. Gerry Studds (D) of Massachusetts said he would not leave office because of his affair with a page 10 years ago.

The investigation by the House Ethics Committee stems from widespread reports of sexual misconduct that surfaced last summer. Investigators checked more than 150 allegations, but determined that most the charges were unwarranted.
