WASHINGTON (P) - A former
Army agent yesterday testified he
saw a superior initiate a file on
Sen. Adlai E. Stevenson III (D-Ill.)
and later caught a glimpse of an
FBI report in the document.
Despite Pentagon denials, John
M. O'Brien maintained his earlier
assertions that the military moni-
tored the activities of Stevenson,
Rep. Abner Mikva (D-Ill.) and

hundreds of other Illinois public
officials and private citizens.
Under questioning by Sen. Strom
Thurmond (R-S.C.), O'Brien told
the Senate subcommittee on con-
stitutional rights that Richard
Norusis, a GS11 civilian and a team
chief for the 113th Military Intelli-
gence Group at Evanston, Ill.,
started the file on Stevenson.
O'Brien said he questioned Noru,

lost on both sides of the border
during the 17-day-old drive into
Laos. At least 40 Americans have
sis at the time, but Norusis replied been killed, 15 are missing and 26

from the FBI in it.
Two other former military in-e

Christopher Pyle, also testified that Ojob

stated policy of limiting domestic ofejob

Citing these statements, Secre-
tary of Defense Melvin Laird and
a top general emphatically denied
yesterday the operations had bog-
ged down. "The operation is going[
according to plan," Laird said.
Joining Laird at a news con-
0erence designed to counter rising
concern in Congress and elsewhere
that the campaign is failing, Air
Force Lt. Gen. John Vogt said the
effort has been, in fact, a success.
"Nobody in his fondest dreams
ever hoped we would achieve all
the objectives in the first two
weeks," Vogt added.

member contends "for most re-
search and teaching assistants, it
is a radical change in conditions."
GACC condemns Smith's plan,
claiming the changes will result in
major negative effects for teach-
ing fellows.
Their allegations include:
-Under the new proposal grad-
uate assistants may be fired at
any time on most ambiguous
grounds. Appeal does n o t
allow- for student representation.
-Smith claims his proposal
"standardizes" graduate assistant-
ships. GACC says that the real 'ef-
fect will be a degradation and di-
minution of status for many gradu-
ate assistants.
-Under the new proposal health
insurance benefits will terminate
for all graduate assistants with
less than half-time appointments.
This affects 37 per cent of the
teaching fellows.

ments may not exceed 32 months.
At present, the usual tenure is four
to five years, often for 12 months
per year. Also the present regula-
tion does not include time as a re-
search or staff assistant, while
Smith's proposal does.
-Smith's proposal reduces the
autonomy of all first year teaching
fellows by placing them under di-
rect supervision of a professor..This
means they may be excluded from
meaningful classroom contact.
-Another effect of the new pro-
posal is to take in-state tuition
away from a number of graduate
assistants by reclassification of
work loads and assignments.

Stewart said the cases could be{
tried again but the newspapers
could not be assessed for damages
unless malice was proved.
Commenting an the second rul-
ing, Chief Justice Warren Burger
said confessions made by a sus-
pect who has not been told he haas
a right to be silent cannot be used
to prove his guilt. But, Burger said,
if the defendant takes the stand
the prosecution can use the state-
ment to impeach his credibility.
Justice William J. Brennan Jr.
said in dissent, "This goes far to-
ward undoing much of the prf-
gress made in conforming police
methods to the constitution."
In other action, the court unani-
mously held that servicemen are
not entitled to civilian trials for
crimes committed on military

Such cases included, they said,
the infiltration of countless anti-
war gatherings; having agents at-
tend the 1968 Republican and
Democratic National Conventions;
and filing running reports to the
Counter Intelligence A n a l y s i s
Branch in Washington on the fun-
eral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Following O'Brien, Mikva de-
nounced the officers responsible,
calling them "the true subversives
of our society."
Mikva urged making it a crime
for military personnel to spy or
maintain files on civilians and
called for the removal of those re-
sponsible for such activity in the
AlexanderPolikoff of Chicago, a
lawyer for the American Civil Lib-
erties Union, said the Army,
through one of O'Brien's superiors,
had "substantially admitted every-
thing Mr. O'Brien ever said about
the nature of . . . intelligence ac-
tivities," except for the widely
publicized exceptions to nis claim
of files on Stevenson and Mikva.
On Feb. 19 The Daily incor-
rectly reported that the Black
Action Movement held a meet-
ing to organize a fund drive for
black community projects., In
fact, the Black Action Movement
did not organize the meeting or
the fund drive. In addition, no
detailed decisions concerning a
Black Cultural Center, one of
the projects, have been made.
