PAOB BI.YTHEVILLE (ARK,)' COURIER NEWB FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 19M Former GM Dealers To Testify at Senate Probe By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) — The,Senate Antitrust subcommittee is still receiving requests from former General Motors car dealers who want to testify in the current GM hearings, an aide said today. , Some of them only recently had their connection with the big auto corporation severed, he said.
