Wednesday Evening, December 18, 1957. Senate Group Probes Union In Tennessee WASHINGTON (UP) - Senate rackets investigators resumed their digging today along an already-warm trail linking Teamster Union officials in Tennessee to dynamitings, vandalism and other forms of violence. One of the first witnesses called for the hearing was Glenn W. Smith, President and business agent of Teamsters Union Local 515 at Chattanooga, Tenn. Smith already has been linked by previous testimony to dynamitings in various parts of the South. Committee counsel Robert F. Kennedy said the Senate Rackets Committee was especially interested in "matters for which (Smith) and 12 other teamsters were indicted in 1951." The ease finally resulted in a directed verdict for acquittal two years later in the criminal court of Judge Raulston Schoolfield at Chattanooga. Kennedy said another early witness would be Hubert L. Boling, business agent and secretary-treasurer of the Chattanooga teamster local. He was one of the 12 men indicted with Smith in 1951 on a 10-count indictment charging various acts of violence. The case jockeyed through the courts for two years, Kennedy said, with Schoolfield at one point quashing the indictment.

A letter to the New York Expect Long Trial Over Teamsters .WASHINGTON (UP)— A long court trial appeared likely today to keep the nation's largest labor union — the scandal-ridden team-; sters — without effective national leadership for many weeks. Officials at the union's headquarters said the teamster lame-duck xeculive board, is simply mark- Ing time. They said major policy decisions were being delayed pending outcome of the federal court trial in which 13 "rank-and-file" members are seeking to prevent President- elect James R. Hoffa from taking office. Attorneys for the "rebel" teamsters planned to present testimony today from witnesses from Illinois, Buffalo, N.Y.. and the greater New York City area in support of their contention that election of Hoffa and other officers at the union's recent Miami leach, Fla., convention was rigged. The trial now is in its third week. The end is not in sight. Both sides have agreed to recess Friday for the holidays and resume the trial Jan. 6. The trial is being conducted without a jury by Federal Judge Dave Beck still is president of th* union even though his term expired Dec. 1. Beck was convicted in Seattle Saturday of the theft of $1,900 from sale of a union-owned Cadillac. He has appealec' the conviction. He faces another trial soon on income tax evasion charges. Hoffa is being tried in New York City on charges of conspiracy to tap the telephones of union subordinates. That trial is likely to end this week. "OLDEST PHYSICIAN" FALLS KENDALLVILLE <Un—Dr. C. B.
