(Studio) In Berrigan trial, defense continues attack on government witness, Boyd Douglas, an informer for FBI.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) Defense establishes Douglas infiltrated antiwar movement at Bucknell University with plan in mind to profit from new friendships. Douglas has always insisted antiwar activists recruited him because of his access to Reverend Berrigan in prison, but under cross-examination by Defense Attorney Paul O'Dwyer, his story fell apart. Douglas lists $9200 in pmts. from FBI, in addition to Idaho papers and credit card. O'Dwyer has Douglas explain schemes whereby he defrauded banks, saying if he could plan them, he, could have planned trumped-up allegations about the defendants to be traded with FBI for cash or favors.
