Diegle. convicted in the legislative bribery investigation, today gave out a statement in which he declared' that he had no knowledge of any wrong doing on the part of other legis- lators or lobbyists. His statement is taken as an indication that the state will gain no evidence through him. The Diegle statement follows in part: "The statements that I have a certain confession to make are erroneous. I have no knowledge of any wrong doing regarding any member of the legislature. In a conference with Attorney General Hogan 1 was asked if had a statement to make and I told them I had nothing to tell. I am ready to receive my sentence at any time. Stories concerning my nietting with Attorney General Hogaa when it was said I had a confession to make are entirely unfounded."

The situation, made more ious by the appearance of the strange!

Though declaring his willingness to tell all he knows concerning leg- islative corruption, Diegle asserts this will not involve either a confes- sion or the giving of evidence which will help in the conviction of the indicted legislators. When told of Diegle's declaration, Prosecutor Turner and Attorney Gen- era! Hogan intimated that his change of attitude might be due to pressure alleged to have been brought to bear on the former sergeant-at-arms in or- der to prevent him from telling any- thing. It was pointed out that Diegte since the conference in the Attorney General's office, has been visited by Charles E. Belcher and Conrad J.
