Tuesday Evening, May 15, 1962 nBUWSPORT PUBLIC LlfltAR Begin Hearing for State CD Director INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The; federal government summoned several Indiana government officials as witnesses today in its efforts to determine whether Civil Defense I>irecto r Robert S. Bates was guilty of violating the Hatch Act. . , The act is administered by the U.S. Civil Service Commission which is conducting the .hearing in the Indiana World War Memorial •with Andrew Goodhope as hearing officer. Bates and his former public relations director, Samuel Stone, were accused in charges filed by the commission of taking part in political activities. Under the Hatch Act, a state officer in a department getting federal funds, who is found guilty of political activities, must either be fired 'by the governor or a penalty equal up to three times the officer's salary will be imposed. , Stale Auditor Dorothy Gardner or someone qualified to testify about records in her office was subpoenaed to appear. Presumably, the federal government wants to prove Indiana does get federal funds for a Civil Defence Department. Another high official was director William H. Skinner o'f" the Personnel Department. While neither Bates nor Stone has been subpoenaed, both expect lo be on hand since they are the ones against whom the charges were made. The charges allege that Bates served as treasurer for a neighborhood Democratic club. Stone, who no longer is attached to the department, is accused of collecting party contributions. The staff of .the Civil Defense Department was hit heavily by subpoeriaes. Among those summoned were the deputy director, Donald Long, and.four other staf] members—Harry W. Strohl,. Robert D. Wolf, Orval Barnes and Elias Harmon. , Deputy Atty. Gen. Addison Dowling is to defend Bates anc Stone against the charges. He saic ;he length of the hearing woulc depend upon what portion of the 'acts went into the record by stipulation. . For example, if both sides woulc agree to accept the fact tha Bates is Civil Defense, directoi without having to prove it, this could save the time of witness testimony. : Dowling, in his answer to the original charges, argued that the Hatch Act does not cover Bates and Stone because they were offi cers .and not employes of the de partment. Dowling also charged that th effort to apply the Hatch Act 0 the Civil Defense officers was an infringement upon the power o the governor who is designated bj the Indiana constitution as com mander in chief of the militar forces of the state.

Miller Jr. and-Richard iBoscher, both' sentenced to. life, and Nick Csire who was sentenced to 2 to 21 years for manslaughter: The farmer died after he was beaten with the butt of a shotgun.
