MALOY TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - It goes nder the innocuous name ot Illness Security Program but Justice Department opera- ion has all the elements of a clional spy thriller. There are safe houses, faked ocumcnts, secret cross-country rips to throw off potential pur- ucrs and finally a new life, afe from fear, for people who lave lived under the threat of lolent death. The Witness Security Program is a major weapon used iy the U.S. Justice Department n its war on organized crime. It is designed to induce insl !ejo to testify in court a'gainst heir criminal companions in return for assurances that the vitnesses will be protected rom retribution by underworld assassins. Lastest beneficiaries of the inique program were Silious iuddleston, 65. and his daughter, Annette Gilly, 34, whose estimony helped convict those responsible for the slaying of nsurgent United Mine Workers Jnion leader Joseph "Jock" Yablonski, his wife and daugh- ;er. Last month in open court a Washington County, Pa. judge put the two witnesses on probation, and later that day the father and daughter dropped out of sight -- permanently. Today, somewhere in America, the people who used to be Silous Huddleston and Annette Gilly have embarked on new lives. They have new names, new backgrounds, and .forged documents provided by the government to back up their new identity.

One of the 94 U.S. marshals, or one of the 1,600 deputy marshals, then goes to the place the witness is to be moved to. Living quarters are obtained, and potential employers w,ho can be trusted are approached. The employers never learn the real name'of their new workers, and are told only that he Is a witness who needs his identity protected. Furniture and other belongings of the witness are moved to the new location. In transit, it stops at a marshal's office, is put into another moving van belonging to a different corn- pany, which takes it to the ultimate destination. The witness and family members usually are flown to "destination unknown," with several plane switches to throw off pursuers. The are discouraged from talking to anyone about their past. The cannot communicate directly with any friends or relatives from the past. Any communication is by mail Letters go to a marshal's office then to a second office, before they finally ariive at their des in at ion. DEBTS.REPA1D Any debts the witnesses had are paid prior to re-location It the witness had no money .he government paid and mus je re-paid. Until the relocated witnes starts work on a new job, he can receive up to $1,080 month in living expenses from the government. The entire re-location proces triggermcn ·murders. in the Yablonski Behind them are the corrupt and Byzantine politics of the mine workers union under its former administration and the raw violence of the Kentucky- Tennessee coal fields where Huddleston lived. Ahead is a chance for a pro- uctive new life, a job, and takes about a sometimes it month, thougl longer. One the witness has a job, th Sovernmenl payments end ani ie is on his own. Rice says most relocated wil nesses stay out of trouble. On one occasion, -.a · witnes blew his cover. He was relo cated a second time, Anothe time a witness got into troubl with the law. The governmen did nothing to help him. Such cases are rare. Most o the 1,200 relocated governmen witnesses lead average lives, i average towns, with a secre most important, safety from revengeful persons bent on destroying them. Exactly where they were relocated and what they are doing will never be disclosed by the Justice Department. But Christian H. Rice, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service, provided a general description Df the operation of the Witness Security Program. Previously conducted in a small way, the program was g r e a t l y expanded under provisions of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970. In the past five years about 3,000 persons (1,200 witnesses plus family members), havs be^n relocated and given new lives under the program. When federal prosecutors convince an insider to talk, and to testify, the witness is put in protective custody. There are a number of "safe houses" around the country for this purpose, equipped with powerful outside floodlights, intrusion dectectors and surveillance systems. Some 35 important witnesses a r e currently residing in .such "safe houses" while waiting to testify. NEW PERSONS After testifying, a special bureau in the U.S. Marshall Service's office creates new identifications for the witness and members of his family who are to be relocated. There are new drivers licenses, birth cer- only they know. The elaborate program is ilized only when the govern- cnt has no other way to crack important case. Richard A. Spragiie, the ecial prosecutor who handled e Yablonski probe, said that thout the testimony of Hud- eston and Mrs. Gilly "there as no way" he could have evicted higher ups in the plot murder Yablonski. TRIO SLAIN Yablonski, his wife and aughter were shot to death in anuary 1970 only a few weeks ter he had failed to unseat A. "Tony" Boyle in an ection contest for the UMW residency. FBI agents quickly rounded p the three triggermen in the ase, along with Huddleston and "rs. Gilly. the ant the But Sprague said that "this case could never satisfy the ends of justice if we prosecuted only the people who were paid thugs...the puppets, not those who initiated crime." In May 1972 Huddleston anc Gilly told all they knew, and agreed to testify. Their confessions led to the arrests o: various UMW officials am finally to Boyle, who was con vicled last spring in the murder plot. Since the Yablonski slaying reform elements led by Arnolf Miller have captured control o the mine workers union. Ouslci UMW President Boyle, who is appealing viction, is his in a as a result of murder con federal prisoi his conviction for misusing union funds. 15c Ib.

(AP) -Mack McLarty, a Little Rock advertising executive, was elected chairman of the state Democratic Committee here Saturday. The election came at the conclusion of the 1974 state Democratic Convention which was attended by more than 2,400 delegates and alternates. There had been early opposition to McLarty because the advertising firm with which he is associated is backing elimination of the constitutionally established 10 per cent interest ceiling. However, no objection was raised to McLarty at Saturday's election. McLarty had the support of the party's Democratic gubernatorial nominee, David H. Pryor. McLarty had served as Pryor campaign treasurer. McLarty said he would work hard to insure that the Demo cratic party remained a party of the people. He said many people had left politics after the Watergate incident. However, he said others like himself had decided this was the time to become more involved in politics and he said the party should encourage others to join. Other officers elected were: Nancy Baker, vice chairman; slate Sen. Robert Harvey of Swifton, second vice chairman; Buddy Benefield, secretary; and Mickey Cissell, treasurer.
