William Porter, American am-
bassador to the Paris peace talks,
gave the warning when discussing
aid and the Vietnam peace agree-
ment with the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee.

The four ICC countries now have
nearly 400 troops in Saigon, and
they should have already started
deploying to observation posts
across the country.
But they were still' in Saigon

He also criticized surveillance
in American society.
"I haven't seen the dossier on
each and every one of you in Wash-
ington-including the kind of lec-
tures you attend-but there prob-
ably is one. The government is
continually trying to identify the
180 million subversives in our
midst," he joked to the crowd.
Douglas also defended the judi-
cial philosophy that has made him
a favorite target for American
conservatives.
"When they talk about strict con-
structionists, what do they mean?
Is it better to decide a case of
due process on your own predilec-

Rights? I say the Bill of Rights,"
he said.
On questions of foreign policy, he

U.S actions in Latin America, com-

Douglas, who has written a book
on Latin America, spoke of the
'topic at length, describing the
use, of natural resources by the
great "industrial plants"-the U.S.,
Russia, Europe, and Japan.
"The Latin American countries
now realize that the big nations
want to use their resources for
their plants," he explained. "We
must develop a harmonious com-
mon market and not only ship raw
material out of other countries."
The judicial maverick also spoke
of the ecological hazards that our
nation faces. Long associated with
t h e environmental movement,
Douglas was critical of the lack of
concern shown by many Ameri-
cans.

The Joint Military Commission
(JMC), composed of the four com-
batants, has itself been unable
to make ceasefire arrangements
because of differences between the
Saigon government and the Viet
Cong and North Vietnamese on im-
migration procedures.
North Vietnamese and Viet Cong
representatives staged a sit-in in
their aircrafts at Saigon airport for
20 hours until they were allowed
early yesterday to disembark
without signing immigration pap-
ers. They said signing the forms
would in principle acknowledge
the sovereignty of President Ngu-
yen Van Thieu's government over
South Vietnam.
The foreign ministry allowed
them into Saigon, but said no
more delegates would be permitted
to land in Saigonrwithout signing
immigration papers.
The JMC eventually had six
hours of talks here but the dis-
cussions were believed to have
centered on the immigration dis-
pute.
