CIA Refuses to Testify Green Berets' Case Ends By BOB HORTON WASHINGTON An unexplained refusal by the U. S. spy agency to let its agents testify has put a sudden end to the con- troversial Green Berets murder.trial. Charges Dropped Charges against the Green of killing a South Vietnamese double agent dropped swiftly Monday after the Army got word of the Central Intelligence Agency de- cision to avoid forthcoming trials. Army Secretary Stanley R. Resor, who less than two weeks ago said he would not yield, to congressional pressure to halt courts martial of six Berets, said the CIA's action meant the1 defendants could not -get trial. "Accordingly, I have directed today that all charges be dis: missed Resor said in a four-paragraph state- ment from the Pentagon. "The men will be assigned to duties outside .Vietnam." Resor said he was informed that the CIA, "though not 'di rectly involved in the alleged in had determined it would not be "in the national in terest" to let its people testify. Although there was no. elabo- ration, presumably the secret agency felt its hush-hush activi- ties in South Vietnam might be compromised even though the Army had planned to conduct at least part of the trials behind closed doors. There were hints the CIA felt Request to Move First State House CONCORD, N.H. Walter Peterson and the Exec utive Council will receive a re- quest Wednesday to move ths remaining portion of the firsl New Hampshire State House from Portsmouth's Court Street to the seacoast city's historic Strawbery Banke section. The request will come from John T. Flanders, assistant commissioner of the Depart' men I of Public Works and High- ways. He is asking for authori- zation to spend on the job. Before the meeting, Peterson and the councilors will watch as a caption is chiseled into a stone on the front of the present Stale House noting that it is the oldest state house in which both branches of the legislature con- tinue to sit. The caption will read, "The nation's oldest Stale House, in which the legislature still occu- pies its original chambers." The legislature first met in the structure on June 2, 1815.

Peter Shapiro to handle a dispute involving New Hampshire's jurisdiction over pollution'control in the Connec- ticut River. He said it involves the refusal of the Vermont Yan- kee 'Atomic Power Co. to recog- nize the jurisdiction. civilian lawyers hired to defend the Green Berets might talk to the press about classified spy operations in Vietnam during or after scheduled trials. "You can hold a court martial behind closed doors, .but that doesn't mean 'you 'can insure se- crecy with-all the people in- volved in the one officer commented. Though the Army's means much of the case may forever remain obscure, thie ac- tion was looked on favorably by a number of government offi- cials. of-Congress who numbered the accused Green U among.their constituents were pleased, and the House cheered at the announcement Monday. Sens.' Strom Thur- mond, R-S.C., and Ernest F. Hollicgs, D-S.C., both issued statements, with Thurmond say- ing he "was confident the Nixon administration would not prose- cute these men." But some House members echoed the feelings of Rep. Clar- ence D. Long, D-Md., who said "Congress should insure that these charges have been dropped completely without pre- judice and that these men's ca- reers wil! not suffer in any way." Nixon administration might be. out from under a pub- ic relations problem with for- eign implications that had fes- tered for nearly two months. CIA refusal to supply witnesses lets the Army avoid a potential airing of military laundry in public. Resor Upset Resor left no doubt, however, he was unhappy with the whole affair which involved charges that the Green Berets drugged and killed a South Vietnamese civilian who reportedly was a spy for both the allies and the enemy in Vietnam.
