to sell took assassination t ;,, /-,;·· *·:· '" · · · · . : : t0[-lJ.S.. bared : WASHINGTON (AP) - A Virginia electronics firm attempted to sell the U.S. government a variety of assassination devices for use in covert operations overseas, according to documents obtained by Sen Lowell P. Weicker, R-Conn. ; The devices, designed to carry explosives in such unlikely places as cigarette packs, flashlights and cameras, were displayed on at least one occasion to Lucien Conein, a former CIA official now with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DBA), Weicker said Thursday. Weicker did not claim that any of the devices ever were purchased by the DEA or any other government agency, but lie said: "I think it an amazing commentary on these times that equipment which can have no legal purpose can be displayed before federal law enforcement officers." A CATALOGUE of the devices offered by the self- described "electronics specialties" firm of B. R. Fox states that its "Astro" line of "explosive devices" has been "designed and manufactured for sale to authorized agencies of the United States government, specifically intended for application outside of this country." Officials of the firm, located in Alexandria, Va., could not be reached for comment and it was not immediately clear what government agencies, if any, are authorized to purchase assassination weapons. Robert Feldkamp, spokesman for the drug enforcement agency, said two DEA men went to the firm last spring to inspect surveillance devices. ', "AFTER THEY were shown the electronic gear, they were given, without asking for it, a demonstra- . tion of these explosive devices," Feldkamp said."They looked at it, expressed no interest in it outside of curiosity and told the salesman they weren't interested." A spokesman for the Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire- aj-ms Division of the Treasury Department said the matter was under investigation. - All devices are "manufactured to the highest standards," and the equipment "can be delivered in a 'sterile' condition for foreign use," the typewritten brochure promises. " "The information contained herein is classified by the manufacturer for U.S. government use only. The handling and storage of this material should be done so mindful of its sensitive nature." '. WEICKER released copies of the catalogue in connection with his renewed call for legislation to create a joint committee to oversee the operations of all U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies" "-The legislation, sponsored by Weicker and Sen. Howard Baker, R-Tenn., both former members of the Senate Watergate committee, would set up a panel separate from the select unit expected to be created Monday to probe alleged wrongdoing by the CIA, FBI "and other intelligence agencies. ·. "I'm through with select committees and investigations," Weicker said in a Senate floor speech. "The time has come in addition to fact finding. to act upon the facts we already have." Closed testimony urged in CIA probe /WASHINGTON (AP) -Sen. John Tower, R-Tex., sjiid Thursday the special Senate committee probing th'e CIA should conduct most of its sessions in pri- v;ate to avoid security leaks. 'The senator, expected t% be named vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Operations, also said information given to the committee in confidence must remain secret. .The CIA "obviously has to engage in some external clandestine activity to maintain our national se- cjirity," Tower said. He suggested that open testi- m o n y could endanger sijch activites. ·JEven if the sessions are closed, "the danger that would come is leaks and dissemination of information that is given to the committee in confidence," Tower said. "We must do all we can to prevent that." ' But Tower also said the investigation must be thorough enough to determine whether the intelligence agency has violated its charter by engaging in domestic espionage. ·A spokesman said tower was concerned that L»f Mtcli, .'lit.», \m INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM)-A-5 open hearings "will be a televised circus," and pointed to the Senate W a t e r g a t e committee hearings during the summer of 1973 as an example. "He fully defends the need to make sure the CIA is obeying its mandate," the spokesman said. "But the question is whether you're going to turn this into a forum of candidates." "I have no preconceived notions, and I will not d r a w any conclusions until all the appropriate facts are in," Tower said. "But I think it is essential that the legal restraints on our intelligence activities be strictly observed." Tower was one of five Republicans named to the special c o m m i t t e e Wednesday by Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania. The others are Sens. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, Charles McC. Mathias of M a r y l a n d , Howard Baker of Tennessee and R i c h a r d Schweiker of Pennsylvania. Senate Majority Leader M i k e Mansfield of Montana has yet to name the six Democrats who will serve on the panel. Clemency rules thought misunder§tood by many SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Charles E. Goodell, chairman of the Presidential Clemency Board, said Thursday he fears thousands of eligible young men may fail out of ignorance to apply for clemency before the J a n : 31 deadline. Goodell said he does not t..ii,... iu n fan! I h n l nnlv 2 per cent of the estimated 100,000 persons eligible h a v e a p p l i e d indicates widespread rejection of the clemency program. The board was set up to review cases of persons convicted of civilian or military offenses in con- nection with service during the Vietnam war. He said many of the ' e l i g i b l e persons who n e v e r left the United States wrongly believe the program is designed for draft evaders who fled the country. "THE BOARD in fact deals only with those individuals wlio stayed in this country and were punished - f o r AWOL or draft violation offenses committed between 1964 and 1973," Goodell said. "The 15,000 who went to Sweden or Canada d o n ' t come under our jurisdiction." TOMORROW IS mon en LA PASADA LEVEL PUR SALON Natural Azurcnc* niink stroller. Orig. $1995 · . . .
