partment of Justice. Today legal
experts were sighting the records
bearing upon the guilt of some of
the biggest offenders, trying to es
tablish that "overt aels" were com
mitted Ions than three Hears ago.
Those who were to beeome defend
ants In criminal actions now have
outwitted the governnn nl with a
plea that their alleged otfenses were
committed more than thiee yours
ago and are not now subject to any
actions w hich the govorniiM nt might

government's tardiness has given
