WASHINGTON (A) -Large-
scale thefts of U.S. military
munitions bound for Vietnam
have fed the arsenals of vio-
lence-prone revolutionary bands
in California, investigating
senators wer3 told yesterday.
Thefts from Army posts in
California have included ma-
chine guns and dynamite seiz-
ed originally from the private
arms cache of an eccentric mil-
lionaire, the Senate investiga-
tions subcommittee was told.
Charles O'Brien, California's
chief deputy attorney general,
testified investigators do n o t
know the extent of arms thefts
from military cargoes..
"There's a market now for
grenades and they're stealing
the stuff," said O'Brien w h o
testified California has exper-
ienced 20 bombings a week for
the past two months.
Often thefts from military
cargoes go unnoticed, he said.
But thefts from California's
military posts where munitions
are stored are also common, he

pistols and ammunition and ex-
plosives from a private 70-ton
arsenal, confiscated in 1957
from California millionaire Wil-
liam Thoreson III, after they

Just last weekend, he said,
thieves broke into a muni-
tions storage area at the Pre-
sidio of Califofrnia and stole
300 sticks of dynamite and other
explosives that had been part
of the Thoresen arms cache.
So far this year, O'Brien said,
state and federal police have
recovered a wide array of stol-
en U.S. Army weapons and am-
munition, mostly in the San
Francisco Bay area.
He said these include 94 one-
pound bricks of plastic explos-
ives, 10 bazookas and 39 gren-
ades reported missing from the
inVentory at Ft. Ord, Calif.
Also recovered, he said, were
50 machine guns, 52 rifles, 65
pistols and 65,000 rounds of

GENEVA (A>PThe International Com-
mission of Jurists said yesterday it has
seen secret documents showing that U.S.
experts are helping to suppress opposition
in Brazil by methods which include the
widespread use of torture.
In a nine-page report on conditions in
Brazil the commission charged that par-
ents are tortured in front of their chil-
dren and priests are mutilated in the
presence of brothers of their congrega-
tion. It claimed there are at least 12,000
political prisoners in Brazil and cited
"the daily confrontation between a thou-
sand tortured Brazilians and their perse-
cutors in the barracks and jails of the
Thereport of the commission, a non-
governmental organization with United
Nations consultative status and supported
by some 50,000 jurists throughout the
world, said Brazil is in a latent civil war
situation in which the government has
launched a policy of "subversive war."
Alleging American involvement, the re-
port stated: "Brazilian officers have
learned such methods from American ex-

Nixon's plan to put the govern-
ment's pollution-fighting efforts
in one agency was described as
lopsided and not comprehen-
sive enough during a congres-
sional hearing yesterday.
The hostile questioning of
Russell Train, chairman of Nix-
on's Council on Environmental
Quality, before a House govern-
ment operations subcommittee
signaled the start of a drive by
some House Democrats to de-
feat the proposal.
The thrust of the questioning
by committee Democrats, led by
Chairman John Blatnik of Min-
nesota, centered around the ad-
ministration's failure to include
all federal environmental func-
tions in the proposed Environ-
mental Protection Agency.
"A great deal more could have
been done to make it more com-
prehensive and unified," Blat-
He said the proposal leaves
out many areas of environment-
al research and leaves in exist-
ing agencies enforcement func-
tions such as noise pollution.
"It doubtless will go through
growing pains," Train replied.

"The field of environment is a

to be an evolving one."
He said the proposed agency
"is not the last word. It's-a start
and a very important start."
"It's a start but a, lopsided
start," Blatnik replied. He said
