2A--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gazette-Mail -O»-:,.;i.-,, WMt Virginia Dr. Benjamin Spock People's Nominee Ex-Partners Continuing Court Fight ~ A complicated legal struggle between Charleston lawyer Henry C. Bias Jr. and Hurricane businessman William A. Steele continued in Kanawha County courts last week as Steele suec a St. Albans bank and filed a lien against an Elkview trailer- office. So far. two lawsuits, an embezzlement arrest and a grant larceny arrest have been involved. THE MATTER began early in 1971 when Bias, Sleele and Dr. C. Frank Mynes became partners in a firm called Kultur Inc.. which leased truck drivers to various firms. Kultur lost $63,000 in 1971 and Bias indicated the firm was for sale. Steele says he paid Bias and Dr. Mynes $48.000 for the receivable accounts of Kultur and went into business on his own. Steele claims Bias was to incorporate his new business in the name of Diversified Personnel Inc. (DPI). Steele and his secretary, Linda Moles, opened an account in that name at Citizens National Bank of St. Albans. j DPI had its office in a trailer at j Elkview owned by Miss Mole'sj mother. However, a corporation called D i v e r s i f i e d Personnel Co. (DPC) was formed, and it filed suit in Common Pleas Court accusing Steele of misusing funds from the business. Also, Bias and Dr. Mynes swore out embezzlement warrants against Steele before Justice of the Peace H. H. Chinn. The embezzlement charges later were re-j placed with grand larceny war-! rants and the case was bound to the grand jury. The DPC firm siezcd (wo company cars held by Steele, took over the DPI trailer-office at Elkview, and took over the DPI bank account in St. Albans, which contained $45,000, according to court documents. Through defense a t t o r n e y John L. Ward, Steele filed a countersuit claiming he had been wrongfully sued and arrested. He claimed he was owner of DPI, and the DPC firm "maliciously, fraudently, and unlawfully" siezed the bank account, trailer-office and cars. Steeie asked $250,000 damages from DPC, on grounds that his DPI firm had been destroyed and his reputation ruined. Last week, Steele filed a lis pendens in the county clerk's office against the office equipment in the Elkview trailer, and also sued Citizens National Bank for turning over his DPI bank account to the DPC firm. Steele asks $195,000 damages from the bank. Halt Pickets, Phone Firm To Ask Court BLUEFIELD--iff'--Attorneys for General Telephone Co* of the Southeast are expected to seek an injunction in U.S. District Court in Charleston Mon-| day to halt picketing at their' offices here by members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

In its endless debates and procedural wrangles the People's party convention seemed much like any other political parley. But there were some distinct differences.

The delegates, many of whom favored long beards and bare feet, were mostly young, very earnest and dressed in btae jeans. Speeches were impromptu and I informal. At one point the acting chairman announced, "All; right All those in favor of Dan-; ny's amendment to the agenda: say aye." Sunday Gazette-Mail Enler«d «, second class matttr al the fatt Office a!
