LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY Monday Evening, June 24, 1957. Hoffa Trial May Slow Steps to Oust Beck WASHINGTON (UP)-The conspiracy-bribery trial of Teamster Vice President James R. Hoffa may further delay efforts to oust Dave Beck from the AFL - CIO Teamsters Union presidency, union sources said today. Hoffa's trial got off to a slow start last week. The process of selecting a jury was still to be completed as it resumed today. As a result union sources Mid they expect Beck to try to postpone a scheduled July 1 showdown meeting of the union's executive board on demands for Beck's resignation. Two Federal Charges Hoffa, whose reputed role as "heir apparent" to the top teamster post has been blighted by two federal indictments, is being tried here on charges of conspiring to plant a spy on the Senate Labor-management Rackets Investigation Committee. A co-defendant is Hyman Fischbach. Miami, Fla., attorney. The "spy, 1 ' New York lawyer John Cye Cheasty, disclosed the alleged scheme to the committee and the FBI. Hoffa, powerful Midwest teamster leader, also faces trial later this year on another indictment charging him with illegally tapping the telephones in his own Detroit headquarters. His aim reportedly was to learn of any conversations with Senate committee staff 1 members. Teamster Vice President Wil- liam A. Lee of Chicago and Secretary-Treasurer John F. English are heading a drive to get Beck to quit before the union's September elections. The move resulted from Senate committee disclosures of his use of more than $300,000.of union funds for himself and his family, and from subsequent demands from the AFL-CIO high command for his removal. Will Not Run Under mounting pressure, Beck I has said he will not run for reelection. He declared no one could force him to resign, but added he would be willing, if asked, to take a leave of absence from his office for the remainder of his term. Informed sources said they think'of leave-of-absence exit would be acceptable to a board majority. If Beck agrees to leave, the Teamster board will have to pick someone to take over duties of the presidency until the union election. This may be a knotty problem. However is chosen will have an edge on influencing the next election. Teamsters leaders are by no means agreed on who should succeed Beck. Hoffa, according to union sources, wants Beck to stay in office to avoid thi.? situation. Hoffa's power, either as a candidate for the presidency or as a "kingmaker," would be among convention delegates rather than on the executive board."

Truce Terms Abrogation Angers Reds Peiping Radio Attacks UN Action But Avoids Any Reference to Communist Arms Buildup TOKYO (UP)—The Communist radio said today the Reds will "fight resolutely to defend the (Korean) armistice agreement" against the U.S. decision to match the Communist military buildup in the divided country. Radio Peiping broadcast a round-the-clock barrage o£ statements by Red leaders in Cnina and 1 Korea saying "the United States must be responsible for all I consequences" of the decision. "The U.S. aggressive Woe regards South Korea, South Viet Nam and Taiwan (Formosa) as three fronts... for attack against (Red) China," said a broadcast quoting the Peipijig "People's Daily." "To prevent a relaxation of tension in Asia, they are using every conceivable means to tighten their control of these three military bases." The propaganda banrage was touched off by the decision, announced Friday, to scrap paragraph 13D of the truce agreement. This paragraph forbids either side to bring now weapons into Korea. It lias been ignored by the Communists, who have moved some 700 Russian - made war- ( planes and sizeable quantities of togansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Ser«m other weapons into North Korea .since -the truce was signed. Nevertheless, the Reds bitterly protested the Allied decision. "The Americans have no right to revise or abolish • the armistice agreement,'.' .said a broadcast quoting Kim Ki Soo, vice chairman of Red Korea's "Democratic Youth League." "K they ignore the warning of the Korean people and persist in their decision, they will be. held responsible for tie consequences." U.S. leaders were reported going ahead with plans to modernize the arms of South Korea's defenders. Although there was no official announcement, the Air 'Force is expected to fly a swarm of F100 jet fighters from Japan to Korea sometime this week. They would be the vanguard of a jet fighter and bomber fleet capable of handling- atomic weapons. account I LOGANSPORT ^ OMI X, state Theatre Bld S . pnon SOUND! SAFE!
