Agriculture OrArmour Co against ment of the order in can end wiretaps Technology too good By VICTOR WILSON New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTONExpierts the wiretap field concede that a new bill sent to Congress by Alty Gen Robert Fy Kennedy to legalize federal wiretapping could do a lot of goodS But they also wonder if this or anysimilar bill will everclean up jungle of The stumbling blockthey point out is modern technology of electronics Advancements in this have been so farreaching and even astonishing that its now pos sible for a person with proper equipment to listen in on a tele phone conversation without tap ping the even be in the same building True Kennedys bill would sub ject illegal to a maximum injafl and a 510000 fine Its broad enough to cover device except say an extension tele phone Butt the experts point out Penalty hasnt when the gain even the death stopped murder seems to outweigh the risk And they add thanks to tiny transistors listeningin devices are now so small and easily cealed that Federal agents would have to frisk every citizen in a given town to make even a dent in eavesdropping for blackmail purposes Besides there arent and cant be that many Federal agents An ideal but by no means fool proof solution these students of the subject say would be to regulate manufacture and sale of eavesdropping devices But this they view in the freeenterprise United States as mere pie in the i Sky Blackmailers private eyes in officially required to be grossly The Appeals Court directed a Federal District Court to enter a preliminary injunction asked by enforce The decision was anofher step in a long battle between meat packers who contended theaddi tion of water improves the quality of the meats ind consumer groups who contend purchaser are defrauded by the addition of water The addition of water to federal ly inspected hams had been au thorized by former Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson who noted that the practice al ready was used on hams proc essed and sold within a state His order permitted addition of mois ture content up to 10 per cent of the green or unciired weight of the hams Freeman last Nov 17 amended the regulation to require that bams to which the water was add ed be labeled imitation ham Armour Co challenged the Freeman order but was denied an injunction by District Court It was that action which the Court of Appeal overturned Thursday Irreparable injury to Armour From the enforcement of the regu lation is apparent without demon stration the Appeals Courts de gision said for the attempted marketing of meat products thus officially required tobe grossly misbranded could not fail to dam age its good name Withdrawl from the interstate onlyother al of course cause loss of profits which could never ae recaptured said Freemans order had the effect of forcing a meat packer into violating the statute which forbids misbranding and nothing in the record as presently constituted supports or justifies such an enforced distortion of the xuth The secretary could easily have made this litagation unnec essary by merely requiring that labels on moist hams bear a leg end showing the

caught on to what electronics have done for eavesdropping They would no more tap a wire to obtain information than tip off the person or firm they have under surveillance They ail know about Section 605 of the Federal Communications Act promulgated in preelectronics 1934 which bars the physical tapping of a com munications line So Ions as they dont touch a line theyre safe from the law unless they get caught using the information they obtain electron ically for illegal purposes Hence they use tiny micro phones concealed in a finger ring tie clasp or coat lapel ornament i with a concealed wire running toi Pletely out of hand small recording devices in their pockets to get the goods on their subject Some use for legal or illegal purposes socalled spikemikes Aimed properly they can pick up and record a conversation between two or more persons across a broad avenue Evidence obtained by wire tapping is barred in all federal courts But these type devices never touch a wire it was pointed out Thus evidence collected by one such gadget was allowed as admissible in a Washington fed eral court The wire tapping situation is as theAttorney General said in legal chaos Five states New
