    Democratic Representative Ronald V. Dellums announced yesterday (Tuesday) in Washington that a Congressional group has scheduled a series of Ad Hoc hearings to investigate war crimes responsibility.

The hearings are scheduled for the mornings of April 26, 27, 28 and 29, in the Caucus Room of the Senate Building.

    Rep. Dellums, who said that he would be touring military bases throughout the country to gather first-hand testimony on war atrocities, also said:
    The three servicemen with Rep. Dellums were:
    Robert Bowie Jonson, Jr., now a coordinator for the Citizens Commission of Inquiry on U.S. War Crimes in Vietnam.

    Greg Hayward, former ADC to Generals Deputy and Williamson; earned the distinguished Flying Cross, two Silver Stars, three Bronze Stars and three Purple Hearts.

    Ronald Bartek, number two in his graduating class at West Point, and his Brigade's boxing champion.
