One ex-agent, Ralph M.

Last week, another former agent said the army spied on a number of Illinois office hold- ers, including U.S. Senator Adlai E. Stevenson in and for- mer Illinois Governor Otto Ker- ner, now a federal judge and the chairman of the U.S. na- tional commission which inves- tigated civil disorders after De- troit's riot.
