tion of the FBI into every city
and town in this nation."
Sen. Roman L. Hruska (R-
Neb.) said the amendment would
bring the federal law enforcement
machinery "into any tavern brawl
on a Saturday night."
All the Republicans voted against
the proposal and most of the
support came from southern u
Democrats.
Long derided an anti-riot pro-:
vision adopted by the Senate
Tuesday as adding up to zero.
This proposal, patterned after a
bill passed by the House last sum-
mer, would make it a federal crime
to cross state lines with intent to
incite a riot.
Long and some other critics ob-
jected that this would require
federal prosecutors to prove what
a defendant was thinking about ;
when he crossed from one state
to another.
The Louisiana senator proposed POLICE TANGLE with demonstrators outsidec

reports show "wholesale corruption
on every level."
The adviser said in reports to
the U.S. mission in Saigon that
the United States must initiate
bold action to stamp out corrup-
tion "and, once having started,
must continue with it."
"Vietnamese government offi-
cials are so involved that very few
have hands sufficiently clean that
they can make an immediate ma-
jor contribution," the reports said.
He told of corruption reaching
even the now deposed director
general of South Vietnam cus-
toms, Nguyen Van Loc.
Gruening said he would start
new hearings in about a month.
Asked if he would summon the
U.S. adviser who wrote the re-
ports, Gruening replied, "We'll do
what is necessary to bring the
facts out.'
The monthly reports to Wash-
ington and the adviser's recoim-
mendationsato the U.S. mission in
Saigon were made available to the
Associated Press on condition the
adviser's name not be used. He is
chief of a 22 man advisory team
that has been working with Viet-
namese government officials for
four years.
At the same time the adviser
offered his recommendations he
told his superiors in Washington
of previous problems in winning
support for get tough proposals,
and blamed "hearts and minds
purists" in the U.S. mission.
In January, he told Washington

In Washington, an AID spokes-
man told the Associated Press
Tuesday:
"The committee never really
got started. And it's possible it
won't get going.
"Wlien you get into the busi-
ness of trying to make another
government clean, under inter-
national law, you get into the
question of sovereign nations."
Gruening said U.S. efforts to
curb corruption "are not effective
because some of our agencies
aren't concerned about it. It's
tolerated from the top in our gov-
ernment."
Speaking of the South Vietna-
mese last Friday, President John-
son said in a speech at Beaumont,
Tex., "Certainly, they have cor-
ruption and we also have it in
Boston, in New York, in Washing-
ton and in Johnson City."

Executions
LONDON (k) Rhodesia's hang-
ing of three black Africans Wed-
nesday despite a reprieve from
Queen Elizabeth II brought threats
of retaliation from Britain and
condemnation by the United
States and other nations.
Commonwealth secretary George
Thomson told a tumultuous ses-
sion of the House of Commons
that Britain's attorney general,
Sir Elwyn Jones, "is giving ur-
gent consideration to all the
legal implications of the execu-
tions.
These implications, he told a
Laborite questioner, Andrew Fa-
ulds, include prdper retribution
from those held personally res-
ponsible for the executions -got-
ernment officials, judges, war-
ders and the hangman.
Faulds had asked if the Brit-
ish Authorities would seek. to
punish - even with the death
penalty - the "judges, officers
of the so called government of
Rhodesia, the - warders and the
hangman."
The hangings were assailed by
African nations and the United
States at a meeting. of the UN
Human Rights Commission in New
York. Morris Abram, the U.S. dele-
gate, declared his government had
no hestitation in condemning
Rhodesian authorities for "this
atrocity."

WASHINGTON - The Selec-
tive Service System confirmed
last night the existence of a plan
circulated nationwide a m o n g
anti-war organizations to harass
draft board members.
A spokesman responded after
the New York Daily News said
in a copyrighted story that groups
opposed to the Vietnam war had
received a blueprint for sabotage
and destruction of draft offices
and personal harassment of board
members.
SELMA, Ala - Three Negro
candidates for Selma's City Coun-
cil began planning runoff cam-
paigns yesterday in the city's first
Democratic primary since the
voting rights campaign of 1965.
The Negroes won a second chance

at party nominations when no'
one polled a majority of the votes
in Tuesday's first primary. The
runoff will be April 2.
WASHINGTON - A group of
House Republicans proposed yes-
terday that $6.5 billion be cut
from next year's budget and $2.5
billion of the saving be used "to
meet urgent human needs and
the urban crisis."
Eight GOP members joined in
sponsoring the shift in budget
priorities and said they had the.
support of 38 others.
None of the party's top leaders
were among the supporters, how-
ever, and the proposal to add $2.5
billion in selected areas of hous-
ing, employment and education
runs counter to a determined Re-
publican effort to slash spending.
