Wayne O'Harra, materials chief for the Arizona Highway Department, testified to the House public works subcommittee, "It's a good looking job." He complained only that 60 test holes now scar the 32.2-mile stretch between Mohawk and Sentinel. Charles H. McDonald, Bureau of Public Roads materials specialist at Phoenix, supported O'Harra's testimony. He said in deep fills any defects would show up inside f ive years, and any others should be now appearing. AN AUDITOR for the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, Joseph Perricone, told the investigators the records on the four-part project were a nightmare. Suff e r i n g laryngitis, Perricone whispered he was unable to make any conclusion from the muddled and often faked-up papers in reStdenkengineer Sidney Fisher's office. McDonald said Interstate 8 is T^ie record is of the $4,293,694 highway where thickness of the roadbed is still in question. Given normal maintenance, it will last out its appointed time, he said. PERRICONE said he f o u n d faked water tickets for $154,000 worth of water. He also found $250,000 spent for materials without supporting records on the Dateland portion of the job, and $130,000 more on the Mohawk end of the project. Overcharges for low - grade materials charged as middle or high grade also were found, $1,086.95 and $1,443.28 on the Sentinel portion, Perricone said. Associate committee counsel John P.

"Even though the intelligence community believes that all have been withdrawn," the probers said "it is of the greatest urgency to determine whether or not strategic missiles now are concealed in Cuba." Absolute assurance can come only from "penetrating and continuing on-site inspection by reliable observers," they told the Senate. Fidel Castro has refused to permit such inspection. The United States relies mostly on aerial surveillance of the island. The Senate preparedness subcommittee also said that, despite President Kennedy's estimate (hat the total of Soviet troops may have dropped to about 12,000, the intelligence community still uses 17,500 as the current estimate. This, the senators said, is "perhaps a minimum figure." They noted anti-Castro Cuban exile reports that as many as 40,000 Soviet troops now are in Cuba.

(UPI)—A federal grand jury yesterday indicted Teamsters boss James R. Hoffa and six others on charges of attempted jury tampering and indicated other indictments may follow. The charges resulted from alleged attempts by Hoffa and his associates to bribe members of the jury which tried Hoffa's $1 million conspiracy case here last year. The grand jury was instructed j to meet again May 21 or 22 to consider the case further. Hoffa surrendered to authorities in Philadelphia and was released on $10,000 bond for a Jiearing Monday, This was the sixth federal Jn- dictment against Hoffa, fiery leader of- the v/orld's largest un- iohj'tn less than six years. He was indicted on five counts of conspiring and At* tempting to influence the jury. If convicted, Hoffa could get five years In prison: and/or $5,000 fine on each count.

Tweel, Huntingtpn, W. Va., president of the Continental To- jbacco Co., and Lawrence Medlin, a Nashville merchant. THE JUSTICE Department said the indictments were based on extensive work by the Federal Bureau of Investigation which began its probe seven months ago. The first count named only Hoffa and charged that he conspired to influence the jury in his trial. The remaining four counts charged him and one or more of the others with attempting to influence specific jurors. Two of the jurors were Gratin I Fields of Nashville and Mrs. j James M. Paschal of Woodbury. Tenn. A prospective juror involved was James C. Tippens of Nashville who said a long-time acquaintance offered him a $10,000 bribe. The indictment against Hoffm charged him with "aiding, commanding, and inducing" specific attempts to Influence the two jurors and a prospective juror to vote for his acquittal In ex« change for money and favors. . Federal Judge William I. ! Miller ordered (he investigation 1 shortly before declaring the mlv | trial.
