REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Los Angeles, California) Judge Matt. Byrne discloses FBI overheard Dan. Ellsberg on wiretap in 1969 and 1970. Byrne orders prosecutor David Nissen to find out facts of wiretap immediately. [ELLSBERG - says government has said dozens of times was no wiretap.] Wiretap not approved in advance by any judge. Justice Department records of wiretap have unaccountably disappeared. Lewis Fielding, Ellsberg's psychiatrist, says Ellsberg's files were lying out in plain view after office broken into, indicating burglars saw files and probably photographed them.
REPORTER: Fred Graham Artist: Don Juhlin
