Details On Page 4A VOLUME 165, NO. 10 IF GUILTY OF B«!B£5 Lifting State Money From Banks Favored By RICHARD GRIMES Chief Of Capitol Bureau A majority of the members of the Board of Public Works said today they favor lifting lifting state deposits from any bank found guilty of bribing a state official. But members members varied in their opinions as to what degree degree a bank is responsible for the actions of its officials. "The taxpayers have the right to assume assume that the banks in which they entrust their money will not bribe a state official to get it." asserted State Supt. of Schools, Dan Taylor, a member of the board who said he is "terribly offended" by recent happenings. Former State Treasurer John Kelly pleaded guilty this week to charges of mail fraud, extortion and bribery in a federal case involving former officials of Charleston Charleston National Bank <CNB) and two Huntington Huntington banks. There is speculation additional additional banks handling state deposits will be mentioned. Supt. Tavlor doesn't think the bank can sever itself from its officers. "As far as I'm concerned, the board should take a very serious look at any depository which uses money to bribe state officials. How can Charles Gates <CNB president) take the position it is not the fault of the bank? "If Charleston National can't control its own officers, then I'm not in favor of putting putting state deposits there,'' Taylor said. An assistant U.S. district attorney said this week that the government was ready to prove that Kelly had received $77,000 from Charleston National Bank since 1961. Meanwhile, Gates, CNB president, said the bank has filed a claim with the bank's fidelity bonding firm to recover the funds and that it would be standard procedure for the bank to take action against Denver Morgan. Former CNB president, and Paul Hinkle. ex - chairman of the board. Gates blamed Morgan and Hinkle and said, "They did it without the knowledge of other board members." "Did Mr. Morgan and Mr. Hinkle write John Kelly personal checks? If they didn't, then I think the bftik is responsible," Tay NUMBER NUMBER OF PERSONS TRAPPED Flames Break Out In N.Y. Skyscraper NEW YORK (AP) - A two - alarm fire broke out in a midtown skyscraper skyscraper today and the fire department said a number of persons were unable to get out of the building because of heavy smoke. "Some persons are 'technically trapped.' We have men with them but we do not feel it would be advisable to try and walk them through the smoke on the stairwells," a fire department spokesman said. He said it was an electrical fire that began on the 18th floor with very heavy smoke which was spread by the air conditioning and created "some panic among workers on upper floors." The blaze erupted shortly before 11 a.m. in the 33 - story building at 40 West 57th St., near Sixth Avenue about six blocks north of Rockefeller Center. Center. At least three persons were rushed from the building and treated for smoke inhalation. Two police helicopters flew above the building as thousands of spectators spectators gathered around the busv loca tion. One of the pilots reported seeing hundreds of persons on the roof. Windows of the building were being broken to let smoke and heat out. Persons Persons in the street below scurried to avoid the falling shards of glass. "There was increasing amount of smoke, then a lot of people began to surry aound and try to run. Thank goodness firemen arrived and calmed things down," said Janine Thrash, who worked on the 25th floor. Another woman who was receiving oxygen said, "I thought We were all going to suffocate. The smoke was terrible — very dark and very smelly smelly " . The police emergency number and fire department said they were getting getting numerous calls from persons who were higher in the building and wanted wanted to get out. One woman working in the building called a relative and said she was with about 70 persons on the 30th floor. She said they had been told to stay there and not to try to get out. lor said. Taylor said he is no attorney and he doesn't profess to expound legal opinions. But he said as an official and as a taxpay - ing citizen he is offended by what appears to have taken place. "The matter certainly certainly should not be dropped. The state has every every responsibility to follow this up." he said. State Auditor John Gates, ?. member of the board and also a member of the State Board of Investments, said it is absolutely necessary that the Board of Public Works discuss changes in the state's investment procedures. "What was good a number of years ago is no good today. We need to review review our banking policies," he said. As to action against a bank bribing a state official, the Auditor said, "As far as I'm concerned, lifting the deposits at such a bank would be automatic.'' But he cautioned against jumping the gun and over - reacting against the banking industry — an industry' that he said is vital to the progress of communities in the state. He said banks do a good service to their communities, adding, "We cannot lose sight of this ... and push the panic button.'' button.'' After ail the evidence is in, he said he favored the Board of Public Works reviewing reviewing the entire matter to see what state action action is needed. "It is a federal case, but the state also must manage its own house," he said. Gates said West Virginia needs to have "active money management" rather than "passive management" like has been the case. He said one man cannot properly watch $750 million on a daily basis.
