A former official at the scandal-ridden Department of Housing and Urban Development on Friday challenged sworn testimony of former HUD Secretary Samuel R. Pierce Jr., saying Pierce once ordered her to approve a $16-million grant for an apartment project of dubious merit. Shirley M. Wiseman, who was acting assistant secretary of housing at the time, said she refused to obey Pierce's direct order to fund the controversial Durham, N.C., project because it had "too many problems."

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Jack Kemp is "very upset" over allegations that private escrow agents embezzled millions of dollars from the department, including a Maryland woman's claim that she siphoned off $5.5 million for aid to the poor, a HUD official said Sunday. Kemp has ordered HUD Inspector General Paul Adams to investigate the alleged embezzlements from HUD's Washington field office, and on Friday he placed four employees on unpaid leave, Frank Keating, HUD's general counsel-designate, said.
