Blythtvin* (Ark.) Courier News - Tuesday, March 7, 1967 - Page Seven Soviet Captain Back with Fleet DEATH ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ A Soviet fishing captain who was fined $5,000 in District Court for fishing in U.S. territorial waters was back with his fleet today. judge James A. Von Der Heydt levied the fine Monday against Nicolai G. Zernov after the Russian pleaded no contest to a charge of violating territorial waters. Zernov was given 14 days to pay the fine. It was hot made clear what steps would be taken if he failed to pay. After the fine was imposed, the Coast Guard flew Zernov and Vasiliy Guzenko, the commander of the fleet to which Zefflov's trawler is assiped, to Kodiak. The two were taken by the Coast GUard ctittef Stofis from Kddiak to Zernov's boat Which was waiting just beyond the three-mile limit. Zernov's boat was seized by the COast Guard last Thursday south of the Alaska. Peninsula, the vessel was escorted to in- ternational waters Saturday. Alaska Gbv. Walter J. Hicliel was highly critical of the fine levied gainst Zernov. "It sounds like a ineasily amount for a situation of this kind," he said. "I doubt the federal government even recovered its costs." Hickel recommended a fine of at least $10,000 ;.: ' a year in ail for the ship's captain. "If a foreign fleet could get by with a violation of this kind with some 20 boats three of four imes before being caught, they would take fish worth many more times the amount of a $5,300 fine," He said. The governor said the state ivill take its own action in the 'utufe involving foreign, fishing ntrusions within the territorial imit.

And, Teamsters sources said, Hoffa was so resigned to losing he had said his goodbyes to many union official last Friday. As Hoffa moved nearer jail, police in New York City placed a guard pn Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., and his Manhattan apartment because of a long-standing threat on Kennedy's life if Hoffa ever went behind bars. Police commissioner Howard Leary Called the guard "routine." A Kennedy aide said that at least a year ago the Kennedy staff "received information'' that Kennedy's home would be bombed if Hoffa were jailed. At' Hoffa's 1964 jury-tampering trial, the chief. prosecutor said the government's chief witness "reported (to the FBI) a threat by James Hoffa to kill the attorney general" — Kennedy. Hoffa later told newsmen, "I deny it, it's a lie." Police in McLean, Va., said they were taking no precautions to guard Kennedy's suburban Washington home. As a congressional staff aide and later as attorney general, Kennedy Hoffa. Hoffa.

Hurst told reporters earlier in the day that Rockefeller had held at least two meetings with Hot Springs businessmen and members of the Garland Bounty legislative delegation He said the first meeting liarj jeen held prior to the current legislative sessidh, and that the second occurred about three weeks ago. On both occasions lie said, Rockefeller agreed nol to vet6 the bill. Hurst said he had held his own meeting with the governor on Feb. ?.4, three days before he introduced His bill, and that the governor reiterated his pledge. "I would not have introduced the Bill if I Had not beefl as sured that if it passed both houses of the legislature i' would become law," Hurs said. Smith and Beasley took, the floor on a point of persona privilege shortly after thi House reconvened following a recess to hear a radio broad cast of the governor's remarks * * * "During the time of the dis cussiori of the bill, several o you asked me directly whethe the governor would sign the bill, 1 ' Smith said. "I informec you that he told me he wouli not. I also told you that he tolc me he would not veto it. "I understand situation; change in Politics. .I've been ii it myself.

His lawyers will fight on in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he was convicted three years ago, for a new trial. Maher argued that Hblfa and three men convicted with him should not go to prison until the final outcome of the move for a new trial. The three others are Larry Campbell, Teamsters Detroit business agent who is scheduled to surrender in -that city today, and Ewing King, secretary of the union's Nashville local, and Thomas E. Parks, Nashville undertaker's assistant, who are scheduled to surrender in Chattanooga. Hoffa and the others were convicted of trying to bribe jurors in the 1962 trial of Hoffa on charges of sharing in an illegal $1 million kickback from a Detroit trucking firm. The Nashville case ended in a mistrial; Until the jury tampering case, Hoffa had successfully fought off other federal charges of bribing a Senate investigator, tapping the telephones of Teamsters' subordinate* in Detroit, and mail fraud in connection with loans from Teamsters pension funds. He was convicted in Chicago later in 1964 of mall fraud involving charges of conspiring to divert $1 million from a $20-million pension loan scheme. He is still appealing that case. The long string of federal indictments covers Hoffa's entire 10-year span as Teamsters president. He wrested control of the union in 1957 from Dave Beck, who went to jail on federal income tax charges.

Rockefeller said that he Wa unhappy that he had given any one the wrong impression. H said that he had met with sev :ral groups and that the gam Wing bill had been discussec but that he definitely had no agreed to permit the bill to be come law. * * » The governor said he had seen an outline of the bill sometime before he took office, but that his attorney told him that the bill was unconstitutional. He said on television that he was "bitterly disappointed that the House and Senate passed this proposal in such apparent haste." The bill Was introduced on a Monday and had cleared both houses on the legislature by Friday, passing the Senate 18-16 and the House 52-43. Rockefeller said he urged that the Senate recall the bill as soon as he learned of its passage in the House. "I was convinced that our legislators would want to take a serious second look at What they had approved," he said. Hurst told the Senate that the only way it could justify its passage of the bill and. prove that it had been right would be to let Garland County operate under it for two years. If it had proved unworkable by then, or undesirable, the legislature could correct the situation. Hurst reiterated after the speech that he Would ask the legislature to override the governor's veto, but he did not say when he would attempt it.
