President Ford headed his falter ing campaign to the Midwest Fri day with a new strategy Empha size his own achievements in office and let others counterattack Ron ald Reagan Among the accomplishments Ford would like to take credit for is the econ omy but he has so far been forced on the defensive by Reagan attacks on his foreign policy Ford got some new ammunition for his trip to Nebraska and Missouri when the Labor Department reported Friday the unemployment rate held steady at 75 per cent in April and a record high number of persons were employed for the third straight month Fords new strategy his aides said Friday is for him to talk positively about his record and programs and let surrogates like Sen Barry Gold water Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and Commerce Secretary Elliot

crudely as squealers finks or stoolpigeons The murky world of the professional intelligence informant was penetrated for the first time in detail Thursday in a Senate intelligence committee staff report which said the FBI had more than 1500 undercover spies on a million payroll as of last year It warned that the mass of informa tion on the lives and activities of tar geted individuals and groups and the methods used pose dangers to a free society and said FBI guidelines should be clarified and strengthened Alarmed at scope Prepared by the staff of the com mittee which is now completing docu mentation of its 15month investigation of intelligence agencies the report ex pressed alarm at the extremely broad scope of FBI intelligence informant surveillance and reporting The dangers to a free society that are implicit in the use of secret in telligence informers have long been recognized it said The intelligence informant technique is not a precise in strument By its very nature it risks governmental monitoring of con stitutionally protected activity and the private lives of Americans Informants have infiltrated or report ed on among others the Black Panthers the Ku Klux Klan antiwar organizations college campuses and even the womens liberation move ment the report said Any and all information is wel comed from personal and political views of targets to their finances and sex lives In fact intelligence informants re port on virtually every aspect of a groups activities serving in the words of both FBI officials and an informant as a vacuum cleaner of information the report said According to records given the com mittee as of June 301975 the FBI had 1584 informants of whom 1040 were regular spies and 554 were on pro bation status pending establishment of their reliability There also were 649 confidential sources and 200 panel sources it said individuals who furnish informa tion available to them in their positions in the political or business life of the community or who would attend cer tain events in order to report on them to the FBI They are not paid There are no statutes or published government regulations to govern the use of informants the report said nor is there a schedule of payments for services supplied by intelligence informants It said such payments average ap proximately a month with the most valuable and productive inform ants
