Hoffa Asks Union Support In Europe BIGGEST TREE IN KANSAS? - Oswego people are saying this elm tree, on Methodist Church lawn, is biggest tree in Kansas. Estimated to be more than 100 years old, tree is 60 feet tall and its circumferance, at a point six feet above ground, is 14 feet, 6 inches. Branches extend 100 feet across. Dwarfed by big tree arc (from left) Dale Dickson, Chamber of Commerce president; Mayor Frank Farris and Don Hettick, C of C tourist committee chairman. WASHINGTON (AP)-James R. Hoffa says he doesn't want to confine himself to the United States in his efforts to increase the effectiveness of the Teamsters Union, He wants European unions to agree not to handle shipments that might affect a teamsters strike in return for a similar pledge by the teamsters, he told the House Merchant Marine Committee Wednesday. Hoffa made the comment in response to a question and did not elaborate on it. A Teamsters official said later no such agreements are being actively pursued It was a new role for Hoffa, who is usually defending himself or his union against some charge when he comes before a congressional committee. This time the committee just wanted to get his views on labor legislation. And it did. On strikes—"Strikes aren't the worst thing in the world. They let off steam and bring alxnit un derstanding. When management brings in scabs and breaks a strike you don't hear anyone calling for legislation. But as soon as a strike is successful everybody gets in the act." On compulsory arbitration: "You can't make people do something they don't want to do. You can't contain the spirit of people by writing laws." Lillies Jaunts Now To Halt LEXINGTON, Ky.

But with coaxing, she soon was putt-putting around the block with him. JAMES HOFFA On cooling-off periods before a strike can be called: "They're of no value. We just use them to stimulate the men so they'll take the same action later. And . we make the increases retroactive, anyway." Painting Sells For $600,000 NEW YORK (AP)-The soaring market in first class, old masters has been marked by another entry in the record books. "The Merry Lute Player," a masterpiece of the 17th century Dutch painter Franz Hals, brought a bid for $600,000 at the Parke- Bernet Galleries Wednesday night from London art dealer Edward Speelman, who sat at the London end of an open telephone line terminating in the auction rooms. Speelman did not indicate whether he was acting as agent for anyone. One gallery official said it was believed a private col- ector in England was involved. The price was an auction record 'or a Hals, nnd the third highest jrice ever paid at an American auction.
