Activist Due At Inquiry ··^DETROIT (0 -~The federal , government prepared today to -challenge: an antiwar activist · to 'testify .before a special fed- :,«ral- : grand ..jury or face con- · lempt citation; ; . The government won a rul- :lng yesterday from U.Sr District Court Judge Cornelia K e n n e ' d y to order Terry Taube, 19, to invoke all Consti- . tutional reasons for refusing to. testify before the grand · jury. : ··"'These would include- the Fifth Amendment, which says a; person floes hot have to testify if his testimony would be self-incriminating. Once this right is claimed, · the government qduld move to grant him immunity from prosecution and then if the witness further refused to testify, the government could cite him for contempt, according to U.S. Atty. Ralph B. Guy Jr. Judge Kennedy said yesterday she would hold a hearing at 9 a.m. today to order Taube to invoke all his Constitutional rights at one time. Taube is one of six young antiwar activists who have re: fused to testify before the grand jury, one of several grand juries investigating May Day activities in Washington, D.C; ? the March 1 bombing of the nation's Capitol,, and' apparently-.other related matters. The activists have based their past refusals oil the Fourth Amendment,. which prohibits illegal search- and · seizure by , the government, charging that the government used illegal wiretaps to collect evidence, . Under- the Fourth Amendment, the activists claimed , the grand jury was unlawfully convened and that subpoenas were unlawfully issued be-" cause of electronic surveillance. ·Hugh Davis, the activists' attorney, argued before Judge Kennedy for a ruling to allow the witnesses to remain silent by invoking only the Fourth Amendment. . The government argued that it is "perfectly obvious" that such a ruling would lead to "piecemeal assertion of constitutional rights" and a series of "successive appeals," ending in the "total defeat of the purpose of the grand jury." CORPUS CHRIST] TIMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 1971 13A Far East Changes Seen AMARILLO «V -- China probably won't make 3ny overt moves in Vietnam and will try instead for a "better atmosphere relieved p! fear," an Associated Press news analyst told the .Texas Daily Newspaper-Association .yester- d a y . ' . · ' · ' · · - . William L. Ryan, an AP specialist in foreign affairs reporting, said President Nixon's visit to Red China will have an "enormous effect" on the situation in Southeast Asia and probably create .a new balance of power in the world. William A. Brown, deputy director of the U.S. Office of Asian Communist Affairs in the State Department, spoke to the group off the record. . Later he told -the Amarillo Globe-News that Americans should recognize the fact that Communist. C-h i n a controls one-fourth of the world's popu- lat ; on. "One of the .major challenges we face in this era is to engage them in a constructive dialogue and have them participate in the mainstream of international affairs," he said. Brown said the U n i t e d States hasn't made any concessions by President Nixon's planned trip. The United States will continue to support the Chinese Nationalist government o n Taiwan, Brown sa'd, and will . oppose any effort la unseat the Nationalist Chinese at the United Nations. · Ryan told the Texas publishers that the Nixon visit is bound to change the situation in Southeast Asia. : Ryan sa ; d he saw tiie world situation evolving into a bal-. ance of power between the three super powers -- United States, Soviet Union and China -- \yith Japan looming as a possible fourth. "This will be indeed a dramatic change in world affairs," Ryan said. He noted that Russia already was un- esy 'over the coming U.S.- China talks, and forecast that the discussion in Peking would have a direct bearing on all world problems including the Middle East. "With this triangular balance of .poweiV Ryan said, "each member having its own sphere, there will be uncertainty about each other. That will create a precarious balance that could produce stability in the world." The days are gone, the analyst said, when the United States saw itself as confronting a monolith'c Communist world intent on global domination.
