Kuhn, fHuber criticize Kelley. Mafia probe

By SHARON WEINER
The State Senate Wednesday was
asked to study Atty. Gen. Frank
Kelley's investigation of allega-
tions of bribes to public officials
brought by Mafia informer Peter
Lazaros.
A resolution which, if approved,
would set up a five-member com-
mittee to "study the handling by
localsand state public officials of
the charges" made by Lazaros was
introduced by Sens. George Kuhn
(R-Birmingahm) and Robert Hu-
ber (R-Troy).
The committee would be em-
powered to subpoena witnesses, ad-
minister oaths, and examine the
books and records of any person,
partnership, association or cor-
poration "involved in a matter
properly before the committee."
Kuhn and Huber called for
$25,000 in state funds to finance
the committee study.
A group of Oakland county citi-
zens had asked Kelley to call for
a grand jury investigation, the
resolution says.
"The Attorney General has in
the ensuing three months taken no
action to allow or deny the re-
quest, nor made any announce-
ment of his findings resulting from
the investigations," it says. "There

is no official determination of the
truth or falsity of certain charges
involving important public offi-
cials, which is a gross injustice not
only to persons under suspicion'
but to the public as well," the res-
olution adds.
Yesterday, Huber reaffirmed his
support of the resolution. "He said
he will push for it "in the hope
? that this resolution will serve as
an additional spur to the reluctant
Attorney General."
Kuhn asked U.S. Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell to take over the
investigation from Kelley earlier
this week.
Kuhn had laid down Fa one-
week deadline for Kelley to "clear
the air" of the allegations over a
week ago. He had also called for
a grand jury probe into the matter
several weeks ago.
"Mr. Kelley has taken far too
long to prosecute in the investiga-
tion," Kuhn said Wednesday. "It
took only 11 days following the
Life magazine article to resolve
the Abe Fortas issue, and Kelley's
investigation is already at least
eight months old."
Kuhn claimed state police have
sufficient evidence to justify is-
suing warrants, and wrote a letter
last week to Gov. William Milliken

charging Kelley with intentionally
delaying investigation on Lazaros'
statements.
Milliken said he was fully in-
formed of the program of the in-
vestigation, and defended Kelley
in his handling of the probe.
Milliken repeated yesterday he
was satisfied Kelley "has been
pursuing the matter carefully and
without dilatory tactics."
Kuhn called Milliken's gefense
of Kelley "hasty and wrong."
State Deputy Atty. Gen. Leon
Cohan said Wednesday the Justice
Department "has been kept close-
ly informed of the progress of
the 'investigation."
He said Kelley personally briefed'
the head of the organized crime
division of the Justice Department
on the status of the investigation
only a few days ago.
"The department of justice has
indicated it will in no way parti-
cipate in the investigation," Co-
han added.
Kuhn declined to comment on
Kelley's communication with the
Justice Department, and s a i d
yesterday .he hasn't heard f r o m
Mitchell yet.
Huber along with Kuhn charged
Kelley with trying to defend "his

discredited Democratic cohorts."
"Every person named by Mr.
Lazaros is a Democrat", H u b e r
said. "Not a single Republican has
been dragged into this case."
Cohan said Republicans as well
as Democrats have been implicat-
ed.
"Harking back to the days of
their favorite investigator, Sen.
Joseph McCarthy, these senators
seek to change a professional in-
vestigation into a public w i t c h-
hunt," Kelley charged last Tues-
day.
He said the people "should re-
call the last time these two gentle-
men tried to conduct a major in-
vestigation - their ill-fated in-
quiry into the newspaper strike.
It was necessary for this office to
save them from going to jail for
contempt of court."
The investigation will soon be
finished, and the timing will not
be determined by political pres-
sures, Kelley added..
Lazaros, awaiting a new trial on
a fraud conviction, had made the
accusations against a number of
public officials during the past
seven months while informing
State Police about Mafia opera-
tions.

REP. WILLIAM A. STEIGER (R-Wis) said yesterday that
student unrest is far more widespread and serious than is gen-
erally believed.
Steiger, one of a group of Republican congressman who recently
toured college campuses across the country, said it is a mistake to
assume than only a handful of revolutionary students are dissatis-
fied with the way colleges operate.
Steiger testified before a House education and labor subcommittee
considering legislation to deal with campus unrest. The group later
failed to agree that it should even act.

ARAB SABOTEURS wounded six Israeli soldiers yesterday
in a wave of anti-occupation violence on the second anniversary
of the six-day war.
Saboteurs hurled hand grenades at soldiers in Jerusalem, the
Jordan West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. The violence followed the
killing of two Israeli army sergeants and a corporal in a bazooka
and grenade attack near Gaza City Wednesday night.
In Jerusalem, Arab shopkeepers closed their stores in the ancient
walled city.
SECRETARY OF STATE William P. Rogers refused to predict,
yesterday when the first pullout of U.S. troops' might be an-
nounced. He noted, however, South Vietnamese forces are making
rapid strides toward taking over more of the combat burden.
Rogers leaves today for the Midway Island 'summit conference
amid continuing speculation that President Nixon, and President
Nguyen Van Thieu will announce there Sunday a specific date for
withdrawal of perhaps 50,000 of the 540,000 GI's now in Vietnam.
THE UNITED STATES has reached agreement with Spain
for continuation of its military bases there. The Senate Foreign
Relations Committee has approved the accord.
The settlement provides for a two-year extension of the 15-year-
old arrangement under which the United States maintains a sub-
marine base and three Air Force installations in Spain.
Senator William Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, said the new agreement will be signed soon,
perhaps within a few days.

THE RATE OF AMERICAN DEATHS in civil disorders has
been infinitesimal in comparison with the worldwide average,
the National Commission on Violence disclosed.
The National Commission on the Causes and Prevention on
Violence issued their report on the anniversary of the assassination
of the death of Robert F. Kennedy, which precipitated its formation,
and said "We have become a rather bloody-minded people in both
action and reactior."
Hugh Davis Graham, an historian from John Hopkins, and Ted
Robert Gurr, a political scientist from Princeton, who directed the task
force and prepared the summary of its conclusions, speculated in the
the report, "We are likely to remain so, as long as so many of us think
violence is an ultimate solution to social conflict."

,Court ruling may affect

servicemens'

convictions

P anthers =arrested'

WASHINGTON (le) - The
Army's Judge Advocate Gen-
eral estimated yesterday that
450,000 Army servicemen con-
victed in military court since
1951 could 'have their convic-
tions upset by Monday's Su-
preme Court decision.
That decision prohibits the
court-martialing of service-
men accused of strictly civil-
ian crimes.
Maj. Gen. Kenneth J. Hodson
said the ruling by the high court
could mean freedom for a number
of court-martialed servicemen now
serving time in disciplinary bar-
racks or federal prisons.
Hodson wouldn't venture a
guess on how many might be
freed, but he said that of 4,000
men presently confined under
court-martial convictions, 2,000
were tried in whole or part for
.ivilian-type offenses.
The Supreme Court held that in
order for the military to assume
jurisdiction in a case, the offense
must be "service-.connected."
In handing down that decision
Monday, the high court was silent
on the issiue of retroactivity- How-
ever, Hodson told newsmen, "This
opinion 'is retroactive for 180
years unless the court changes it."
Just going back to World War 1,
said Hodson, would involve some
four million men.
Presumably the Supreme Court
will clarify this point in subse-
quent cases.
Hodson predicted that the Pen-
tagon will be confronted with "a
vast amount of litigation arising
out of the decision."
Much, he said, will involve men
seeking to clear theirmilitarysrec-
ord of dishonorable discharges af-
ter conviction of civilian crimes.
He said the Pentagon thinks many
individuals may sue for back pay
and veterans' benefits which they
lost as a result of such discharg-
es.
The general also predicted liti-
gation by relatives of dead ser-
vicemen whose court-martial con-
victions on civil type offenses de-
prived them of burial in a nation-
al cemetery.
What makes an offense "ser-
vice-connected" is now the prob-
lem the military is grappling with.
Hodson said that whether a man
wears his uniform when he per-
forms an unlawful act of duty or
off base could be a "relevant fac-
tor' in the question of jurisdic-
tion. But he said he doubted -the
uniform alone could provide the
basis for military handling of a
case.

HOUSTON (R) - An FBI agent
testified in the Cassius Clay wire-
tap hearing yesterday that tele-
phone conversations of Elijah Mu-
hammad, head of the Black Mus-
lim sect, had been monitored by
federal agents at least four years.
Similar testimony Wednesday
indicated that Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., the civil rights leader,
had been under electronics surveil-,
lance from 1964 until his death in
1968.
The hearing was ordered by the
U.S. Supreme Court to determine
Whether the wiretaps affected the
trial in which Clay was convicted
of refusing to be inducted into the
Army.
The former heavyweight boxing
champion contended he was a
Black Muslim a n d thus exempt
from military duty.
Agent C. Barry Pickett of Jack-

sonville, Fla., did not give the spe-
cific reasons for the surveillance
of Elijah Muhammad.
Charles Morgan Jr., Clay's chief
counsel, sought repeatedly to ob-
tain specific reasons, but Pickett
insisted his instructions were gei-
eral.
"I am trying to prove he had
specific instructions to obtain in-
formation on tle religious beliefs
of this defendant," Morgan told
U.S. Dist. Court Judge Joe In-
grahm.
Summaries of four taped con-
versations involving Clay were ad-
mitted into evidence Wednesday.,
One involved King and three in-
volved Black Muslim officials. j
Ingrahm had a fifth summary
in a sealed envelope but refused to
admit it into th e record on
grounds such action could endan-
ger national security.
