REPORTER: Garrick Utley
(DC) Committee to hear how military reports of air strikes by medium and small fighter bombers were falsified. Source says falsification seems more blatant than B-52 secret strikes in 1969 and `70 over Cambodia. Committee to probe secret ground operations in Cambodia. Committee to hear testimony by American pilots acting on orders, hit enemy field hospitals. Pentagon officials say any such order would violate American policy. Dissension exists over holding hearings. Some Senators feel aim is to embarrass military and Nixon admin.
