definitely from printing
more material from a sec-
ret Pentagon study. A fed-
eral judge in Boston re-
strained the Boston Globe
and ordered the paper to
turn over its copy of the
document, while the Chi-
cago Sun-Times printed a
story it said was partly
based on the same report.
At the same time, government
officials announced steps to re-
view and declassify parts of the
study on U.S. involvement in
Vietnam. Defense Secretary Mel-
vin R. Laird said he had ordered
censors to move "as rapidly as
we possibly can."
In New York, the 2nd U.S. Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals extended
a temporary restraining order
against the Times pending a final
decision which the brief judge
promised "in the next few days."
Beforethe hearing moved into

Judge orders
Globe to turn
in documents
BOSTON (R--A U.S. Dis-
trict Court judge, acting at
the request of the Depart-
ment of Justice, yesterday
restricted the Boston Globe
at least until 10 a.m. Fri-
day from publishing further
excerpts from a secret De-
fense Department study of
the origins of the Vietnam
war.
Judge Anthony Julian also
ordered The Globe to deliver to
the court for impounding any
documents "or other tangible
evidence of such documents" re-
lating to the study of American
involvement up to mid-1968.
The Globe announced it would
obey the court's temporary re-
straining order in effect until a
hearing Friday morning but said
the newspaper would confer
with counsel about the im-
pounding order.
"We don't like this impound-
ing order," editor Tom Winship
said in a statement. "We are
consulting counsel and will have
something to say tomorrow."
In ordering impounding of the
Globe's documents, Julian ap-
parently went further than other
federal judges who dealt with
similar publication by the New
York Times and the Washing-
ton Post.
Appellate courts yesterday ex-
tended indefinitely court orders
against the Times and the Post
to prevent their further publi-
cation of the war study.
In those cases, the Justice De-
partment requested that the
newspapers turn over their doc-
uments for inspection but both
refused. The government did not
seek subpoenas for the docu-
ments' return but the news-
papers did submit lists of docu-
ments in their possession.
The Globe printed excerpts of
the study yesterday morning.
T h e articles covered a 1964
meeting at which Adm. Harry
Felt, then commander of the
Pacific forces, argued that com-
manders should have the free-
dom to use tactical nuclear wea-
pons in Vietnam.
