Among those subpoenaed Monday was Frank McKinney, Indian, apolis bank president and former Democratic national chairman. All are to appear Wore the grand jury Wednesday morning, At least two of those served said they believed the investigation dealt with attorney Davic Probslein who has«not been seen since June 6, 1!>55', when he checked out of a St. Louis, Mo. hotel after telling another lawyer he was "on a dangerous mission.' The jury presumably hopes to determine if the disappearance had anything to do with an $8,001 loan Probstein reportedly obtainec from the Teamsters Union in 1954- in the purchase of a taxi cab company in Indianapolis. The loan was disclosed in tosti mony before the Senate. Rackets Committee in 1958.

He speculated Monday that the inquiry might relate to deposits and withdrawals by the union and Probstein. Also called to testify was Paul Shick, who was president of the Indianapolis Board of Public Safety at the time Probstein obtained a license to operate the State Cab Co. Probstein had told the board he had no backing from a labor union, a charge leveled at him at the lime he obtained authority from the board to operate 12 taxis. The missing attorney laler sold Slate Cab to United Cab. The late Gene San Soucie, then president of Indianapolis Teamsters Local 135, told newsmen in 1958: "I tried Lo help Probslein oul and break up the non-union -cab racket here. If I could get my hands on the little — now, I'd chain him to my desk until he paid me back." Other subpoenas were received by Clifford Courtney, now Indiana revenue commissioner,' then on the Board of Public Safety, and Indianapolis attorney John Carson. 2 Aunts Contest Big Estate Left To Purdue U.
