Actually the figure Is higher since the Central Intelligence Agency refused to say how many it gave. The subcommittee said "seri- ous questions have been raised regarding the reliability of the device and the propriety of its use." The committee, found most of the supposedly scientific tests were administered by military men, some of whom had only five days training and most of whom were required to have only a high school diploma. 72 Per Cent Accurate Further, the House Committee on Government Operations re- ported the polygraph was found to be only 72 per cent accurate in judging falsehoods. All federal courts and many slate tribunals refuse to admit results of a polygraph test into evidence. The preliminary report wa: prepared for the full committee by the Foreign Operations anr Government Information sub- committee headed by Rep John E. Moss, D-Calif. Rep. Wil- liam L.
