TWO BLTTHEmLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS GOP House Leaders Fighting Uphill Battle on Wiretapping By B. B. LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican House leaders waged what looked like a losing bat- tit today to save the administration version of a bill to legalize use of evidence obtained by wirttapping in cases involving national security. As th* House entered the second day of furious debate on the mea- •ure, some GOP quarters privately conceded defeat on a showdown vote later in the day over giving the attorney general authority to order wires tapped in national security cases. Most Democrats and some Republicans favor a proposal that would require a court order .before wiretapping could be carried out. However, passage of some form of wiretapping legislation appeared assured. The only important dispute centered on the form it should take. Both versions under consideration would restrict wiretapping to espionage, treason, sedition and seditions conspiracy cases. Tfen administration-backed version would give the attorney general authority to order wiretapping by FBI and military intelligence agents in specified cases. A substitute proposal, authored by Rep. Willis (D-La>. would require the attorney general to get a court order in advance of any official eavesdropping. ' Brownell has opposed inclusion of the court, order requirement as a time-consuming handicap on FBI agents. Foes of unchecked wiretapping powers denounced the administration bill as "the first step toward making this country a police state," and an invitation to political chicancery. Rep. Dodd (D-Conn) declared, "It reposes in one man a police power that the people of the United States have repeatedly refused to grant," Rep. Keating (R-NY), author of the administration bill, told the House a provision in the bill permitting use of old wiretap information "may very well permit the conviction" of former government girl Judith Coplon and others against whom the government has not been able to use such evidence."

Gentry wrote: If the "veteran left a permanent job with the state of Arkansas to enter the military service, it is my opinion that the state of Arkansas is obligated to re-employ him, either in the position he held at the time of his induction into service, or one of like seniority, status and pay."
