DOI1K1X WASHINGTON (AP) Ths pentagon's super-secret lie- en ce Intellige A gency las been penetrated 3jy an agent who roamed through guarded offices, stole secret documents, planted electronic .istening devices and even op- erated the agency's main computers. Using homemade creden- U als, the age nt posed as a DIA employee lo carry out his espionage activities in some of the most heavily pro- tected offices in the Washing- .on area. No, Ihe agent was not a So- viet spy hut a U.S. Army in- telligence officer assigned lo test the lack of it at DIA installations. The relative ease in which he succeeded caused embar- rassment, within the Pentagon and led to a series of security lectures last week for nearly all DIA employees, ci- vilian and military, whose job it is to gather and dis- seminate intelligence infor- mation lo the armed forces. Pentagon officials refuse to discuss the episode or even acknowledge it occurred. But a DIA employee who at- tended one of the sessions re- called this account of how the in-house spy went about bis business: Unfamiliar with (he inner' workings of the DIA, the agent first mingled with em- ployees panicking on ttie grass at lunehlime at one of the agency's installations in suburban Virginia. This was so lie could photograph their identity badges and make a duplicate to get inside re- stricted areas. SECURITY ALMOST. ML Cameras are forbidden on the rounds but no one re jorlcd him or questioned his identity. The agent said he needed their pictures for a security campaign he was conducting. Inside, the agent said, se- curity was almost nil. In one instance, although s identity was never con- firmed, the agent walked out not. only with information he some other highly sensitive documents he had picked from a desk and stuffed in his briefcase. The agent's primary objec- tive was to get into the com- puter area. He not only suc- ceeded, hut managed to oper- ate the computer himself, get the information and carry it from the building. In relating his experiences, ths agent told lha DIA v.rxk- ers that one of the big prob- lems was young, attractive secretaries who often hung around the guards1 desks, di- verting their attention people entered the buildings. The guards complained that the identification pictures he- come outdated by fashion- conscious government work- ers adorned beards, hsir and The DIA has 2-ked for an additional to buy more elaborate security badges. Powers of still big By J. C. GRAHAM Canadian Press Correspondent AUCKLAND, N.Z. fCP) Ten years after the office was created. New Zealand's om- >udsman is accepted as a valu- able feature of national life. Rut argument continues on whether :iis powers are wide enough. The ombudsman investigates complaints by citizens against decisions of government depart- ments for which there is no other form of appeal. In 39G3, his duties were extended to cover also Ihe decisions of hos- pital and education hoards. The flow of complaints has become fairly regular from year to year. Last year comnlaints were lodged, of which 525 were investigated, and m found justified in some measurc. The proportion found justified, 21 per cent, was the same as the previous year. The main reason why half the complaints were not investi- gated was because the ombuds- man lacked Jurisdiction to in- in the areas in ques-1 ion. A large proportion of com-' ilaints which could not be in- vestigated dealt svith activities of local councils, jorough councils, county coun- cils and similar authorities, to- gether with various special pur- pose hoards. Almost from the inauguration of the office of ombudsman there have been suggestions that his duties be extended to cover activiies of local bodies. But opposition from a majority of the organizations concerned has FO far .stalled suggestions for new legislation. HANDLES ROLE WELL Since the start of the office it has been fillet! by a former law- yer and diplomat. Sir Guy Powlcs. Us has shown remarkable sympathy, tact and understand- ing, not only in handling indig- nant protesters, but also in bringing pressure or persuasion to bear on government depart- ments to make changes. He has seldom had to use his ultimate pon cf reporting lo Parlia- nent that a department has refused to accept bis findings. The quah'y of his work n the rcfe of ombudsman has jten in large part responsible "or the rudest 'rom many quartc-rs that Ms be increased to cover .ccal bodies. He himself has also proposed such extension. Local bodies which oppose use of the ombudsman to investi- gate complaints claim that such action would amount to intru- sion by Parliament into local matters. The ombudsman is ap- pointed by, and is answerable lo, Parliament. Some local bodies have sug- gested that they appoint a local overcoming the objection of interference by Parliament. Lack of unity on the subject has so far deterred the govern- ment from forcing the issue, but there are signs tbat it would like to see the matter more carcfullv studied. truck beat time T'LYMOUTH, Mfiss.
