Hotel sponsored by the National Association for Justice (NAJ), formed last Septembeir. "Proceeds from the dinner will be used to finance a new "crisis control center" being set up to help calm tense situations in prisons across the country. C. Edward Lawrenson, a former convict himself and one of the NAJ leaders, said the prupose.of the center is to help prevent a repetition of the Attica Prison riot in New York in 1971 in wi)ich 43 inmates and guards died. Lawrenson said toll-free "hot lines" will be set up so that any prison inmate, guard or official can telephone the center if he needs assistance or wants to report potential trouble. Lawrenson said the NAJ then could decide whether to help by sending someone to the prison. Frank E. Fitzsimmons, a former Hoffa colleague who ran the Teamsters Union while Hoffa was in prison and who succeeded him as president, declined an Invitation to attend the dinner, Lawrenson said, He said as far as he knew the only high Teamster official planning to attend was Vice President Harold Gibbons of St. Louis. Fitzsimmons recently removed Gibbons as the director of the Teamsters' Central Conference, apparently because Gibbons .supported Democrat George S. McGovern last November while Fitzsimmons and the union endorsed President Nixon for re-election. WONT lUT IN TNf NOUII U't no fun to bt confintd by > ••rioui sccidtnt or iUn«M.
