S. delegation at the inauguration of South Korean President Park Chung-Hee July 1. Agnew told reporters that the objectlves~of~His diplomatic mission on behalf of President Nixon was "really quite general." "Principally, the objective is to touch base in a diplomatic sense and take some con-fidentialrt>%iessag6s from the" President to the chiefs of state of those countries - nothing of any tremendous moment but just a continuing effort. to maintain the best possible liaison with those chiefs of state." Agnew will spend four days in Korea mixing the ceremonial aspects of the Inauguration and some sensitive discussion with top Korean leaders on a variety of issues. He might also meet with delegations from other nations attending the Inaugural. The vice president said he expected to see Park but added he was looking forward principally to meeting the new South Korean Prime Minister Kim Chong Pil. "We'll be there long enough to discuss just about everything that is of interest between the two countries," Agnew said. He added it would probably include Korea's intention to withdraw eventually its 48,000bat- Madd Seek ox Top May Post ATLANTA UPI - Lester Maddox doesn't like any of the current crop of Democratic presidential contenders and says he is thinking hard of making another run for thepost himself. Maddox, in discussing his political future, said he has received a number of offers of financial and moral support should he decide to make a repeat of his 1968 run for the presidency. "I will probably run for political office again but I haven't made up my mind," he said. The former governor, now Georgia lieutenant governor, has been mentioned frequently as a likely opponent in 1972 to Sen. David Gambrell when he seeks election to the Senate seat to which he was appointed. Maddox's political erout is believed to have ebbed somewhat since last fall when he reaped the biggest statewide vote of any candidate In winning the lieutenant governorship. But most observers still respect his popularity. Even though he is a frequent critic of Democratic Party policies, Maddox said he would probably seek the presidency as a Democrat; He said he doesn't care for such party hopefuls as Sens. Edmund Mus-kle and George McGovern because "they're all alike - captives of the establishment." Maddox discounted a recent newspaper report that he would enter presidential primaries only in North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida. "If I got into it, it would be in all the states, not just those three." Widely sought as a speaker at conservative gatherings, Maddox has also taken full ad vantage of the publicity op portunities afforded by being lieutenant governor. In fact, many people, including Gov, Jimmy Carter, have called for the elimination of the office, or at least trimming it of some of its powers. That suggestion brought strong retort from Maddox that Carter was trying to run the State Democratic Party. Maddox and Carter have clashed on a number of issues since the latter became governor, including squabbles over a sales tax increase and the naming of a new state party chairman. As example was Maddox's labeling as "stupid" a resolution introduced by Carter at a Democratic Governors' Caucus to keep Vietnam out of the 1972 presidential election. "It's stupid to try to exclude Vietnam as an Issue," he said, "It's already an Issue." Although another bid for the presidency may be no more successful than his short - lived attempt in 1968, Maddox sees another benefit. "It would be one way to influence others who are seeking the same position." tie-tested troops from Vietnam, including one division of about 15,000 before the end of the year. Until now, the United States has considered the question of Korean troop withdrawals strictly a matter of negotiation between the South Koreans and the South Vietnamese. Charter Plane Crashes At Sea EUREKA, Calif.

Eight bodies were recovered by the Coast Guard and eight persons were missing. Seven persons survived the crash and were taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Eureka and Southern Humboldt Community Hospital in Garberville. Five of the ^survivors were reported in serious condition, the other two were in good condition. The Coast Guard said three crew members - the pilot, copilot and stewardess - were on the plane which was carrying sales representatives for the development. An Armada of Coast Guard cutters, helicopters and amphibian planes, plus pleasure craft and fishing boats, assisted in rescue operations. High winds, darkness and rough seas hampered the search, "The plane appeared to dip after taking off and clipped the top of the sewage treatment plant which sits below the runway," Humboldt County Aviation Director Dave Zero quoted witnesses as saying. Zebo said the DC3 ripped the roof off the building, smashed into a huge rock about 300 feet off shore and tore Apart. Passengers and crew members were tossed into the sea. Some were feared trapped in the fuselagVwhich sunk. The pilotVand co-pilot were killed but the stewardess, tentatively identified as Elizabeth Deauville of Sari Francisco, survived. Another plane, carrying prospective land buyers, took off just before the crash. It then returned to the airport and a pediatrician aboard aided in treating survivors, Humboldt County sheriff's deputies said the plane was carrying mainly sales representatives of Shelter Cover Sea- ' park Ltd., of Los Angeles, which is constructing a housing development called Shelter Cove along the coast, about 200 miles north of San Francisco. One of the 20 passengers was a woman believed to be the wife of one of the salesmen. Some injured survivors remained afloat for about 40 minutes before being rescued by 30 boats that converged on the area. The Federal Aviation Administration and the Civil Aeronautics board sent investigators today to the crash site, 50 miles, south of Eureka, in an effort to determine the cause. The FAA said the plane was en route to San Jose, about 65 miles south of San Francisco, and then on to Los. Angeles.
