(UPI)— Bankrupt salad oil king Anthony Dc Angelis was found in contempt of court today for "lying" about a half million dollars locked up in a Swiss bank. He was sentenced to four months in jail. Superior Court Judge Robert A. Matthews, however, delayed ordering De Angelis committed to thc Hudson County Jail pending appeal. De Angelis is the central figure in the mysterious disappearance of $150 million worth of salad oil from New- Jersey storage tanks. Matthews directed defense attorney Walter Van Riper to go before a judge in the appelate division of Superior Court of Newark to seek bail pending filing of an appeal. Matthews ruled that Dc Angelis lied to the court Jan. 20 by failing to disclose nearly $500,000 in cash and securities in four Swiss bank accounts. At that time, De Angelis assigned his assets to a receiver in declaring himself a pauper, but failed to mention the Swiss accounts. I Attorney charges FBI helped write confession LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Defense attorney Gladys Towles Root today charged that FBI agents helped write a confession introduced at the trial of three men accused of kidnaping Frank Sinatra Jr. The confession was accepted in evidence as a statement given to agents of the Federal Bu reau of Investigation in San Diego, by defendant John Irwin after he surrendered Dec. 13. In cross examination of FBI agent William S. Fields, Mrs. Root charged that the 27 - page statement was an "interpretation" made by Fields and two other agents who interrogated him. Fields denied her contention but said. "Mr. Irwin had trouble phrasing things. He'd say "here's what I want to say. You fellows help me.' " The attorney also suggested that Irwin never authorized use of the word "ransom" to describe money he turned over to the FBI, but Fields denied this. Thc government expected to rest its case today, perhaps by noon, and then young Sinatra was scheduled to make a return appearance as a defense witness after prosecutor Thomas R. Sheridan finished questioning several FBI agents on the search for the suspects and payment of the $240,000 ransom. Frank Jr. flew home from Europe, interrupting an cngate- ment with the Tommy Dorsey dance band in order to testify at the trial of Barry Worthington Keenan, 23; Joseph Cyde Amsler, 23; and John William Irwin. 42. During the first week of the federal trial — now in its 13th day — the 20-year old Sinatra testified as a government wit ness that the Dec. 8 kidnapping was not a "publicity stunt" and said he feared for his life while he was in custody of the kidnapers for about 54 hours. The defense was permitted to call young Sinatra back as a witness because, it was stated, there was a new area of questioning for him. Under rules of cross-examination, defense attorneys were not permitted, generally speaking, to question the young singer on any subjects which the prosecution did not bring up. ingo. and San Juan, all of which have legal casinos.

(UPI) Richard M. Nixon said today Congress should adopt a resolution telling foreign businesses they will have to choose between doing business with the United States or with Cuba. The former Vice President proposed the resolution at a Republican-sponsored breakfast attended by 2,500 persons. "If President Johnson does not act, I believe such action by the Congress is absolutely necessary," Nixon said. "This action should be firm but not belligerent." Nixon noted that a British firm which sold buses to Cuba recently also sells cars to the United States. He said the com pany should be forced to choose one market or the other. NLxon said Republicans "can and must" win the Presidential election to give the nation new leadership and "stem the tide" of Communism in key areas of the world. He accused President Johnson of failing to take strong action regarding Cuba, Panama and South Viet Nam. Nixon Wednesday called for a diplomatic and economic blockade of Cuba. He also repeated his statement that he is available for the Republican Presidential nomination if the party I wants him.

Monk member of family Australia grants fax deduction too MELBOURNE. Australia (UPI)—The Australian Taxation Department agreed today to permit sheep rancher Lindsay Schmidt to list his 9-year- old monkey as an income tax deduction. Schmidt says the monkey works for him, driving a tractor. "Johnny is a careful driver," Schmidt said. He never presses the starter button while the tractor is in gear. He makes sure the gear is in neutral, presses the button, then springs like a flash into the driving Iscat and grasps the wheel" • Schmidt added that the 3- foot, 6 inch monkey performs other chores on his ranch 220 miles west of Melbourne. He said he opens and shuts gates and is a good sheep-herder. The tax department granted Schmidt a $152 deduction. Schmidt said Johnnie, like the other ranch hands, gets free room and board. His favorite lunch is a couple of sandwiches, some fruit and a bottle of soda pop. On Sundays, he said, Johnnie relaxes by going fishing with j the Schmidt family.
