Gable Denies 'Affair 1 Story In Libel Trial By JACK LEFLER LOS ANGELES UP) — Clark Gable says he doesn't even know Franceses de Scaffa, who was quoted in the Confidential Magazine criminal libel trial as saying she "had an affair" with him while getting information for a story about his first wife. On the Hawaiian island of Maui, Gable said about testimony concerning the purported affair: "I think I would remember that, but to my knowledge I never met the lady in my life." Gable is vacationing on the island with his present wife, the former Kay Spreckels. Ex-Editor Testifies Former Confidential Editor Howard Rushmore testified Mon day that Miss de Scaffa, former wife of actor Bruce Cabot, told him she had the affair with Gable. At the time, Rushmore said, she was gathering information for a story on Josephine Dillon, a drama coach to whom Gable was married from 1924 to 1930. Rushmore had testified earlier that Miss de Scaffa, whom he identified as Confidential^ chief source of information in Holly wood, had told him she would be willing to have affairs with movie stars to get material for stories. The defense counsel asked Rush more: "Did she tell you that she obtained information on any story by sleeping with. someone?" "Yes," said Rushmore. , "She said she got the information on the Dillon* story from a person she was having .an affair with." Asked to name the person, Rushmore replied: "Clark Gable." Rushmore said he bad no knowledge of her purported affair with Gable other than what she had told him. Miss de Scaffa, who is under HIGH-F'LYING CAREER . . .

She formerly was a Confidential informant, Rushmore Miss Quillan's name cropped up! again when Rushmore said a Con-j fidential story about television •, star Desi Arnaz came from Vonej of Ronnie's call girls." Rushmore, who spent most of the da>** on the stand, said information for the magazine's stories came from "madams, procurers, call girls and private detectives." Rushmore testified he quit his job as editor of Confidential in the late summer of 1955 because of "increasingly repulsive material" being published. He cited a story about actress Kim Novak as being "pornography." He said he personally had written stories about Marilyn Monroe, John Garfield, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and atomic scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer.

Roosevelt but was overruled by publisher Robert Harrison because it wouldn't be "politically wise" to publish it. Rushmore said that he and Harrison had many discussions about whether their stories would hurt Hollywood personalities. "Harrison said the main object was ^o sell magazines," Rushmore said, "And it wasn't within our province to determine whether it hurts people. He told me in effect that if the truth hurts, that's it." Lester Grady, a New York editor and writer who for a brief time was editor o» Whisper magazine, followed Rushmore to the witness stand. Meany, Hoffa at Odds on Aiding Investigations Look what low-price oar money buys now I CHICAGO 1*1—George' Meaney, president of the AFL-CIO, has placed himself in direct opposition tc the views of Teamsters bigw(g James R. Hoffa on the matter of cooperation with congressional committees. Meany reaffirmed his stand against labor leaders invoking the I Fifth Amendment to protect them-: selves. He_ said the AFL-CIO will i cooperate with congressional committees "turning up corruption in labor." Reiterates Views The labor chieftain reiterated his views Monday in a news conference at the end of the first session of his organization's 29-man Executive Council meeting, Hoffa, Midwest boss of the Teamsters Union and a growing power in labor ranks, has declared himself against the AFL- CIO amendment policy. He is a prime mover behind a labor group which is attempting to repudiate an Executive Council statement which says: "It is the policy of the AFL-CIO that if a trade union official decides to take the Fifth Amendment for his personal protection and to avoid scrutiny by proper legislative committees, law enforcement agencies or other public bodies, into alleged corruption on his part, he has no right to continue to hold office in his union." The Hoffa-led group contends this stand "has created a substantial threat to liberty and the strength of the union." The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution holds that a person does not have to give testimony which might incriminate him. Disagreement between Meany and Hoffa on this matter might come to a head when the council takes up the case of* President Maurice A. Hutcheson of the Carpenters Union. Probe Quick Profit Hutcheson took the Fifth Amendment when he appeared before the U.S. Senate Public Works Committee. The committee was investigating reports that Hutcheson and two other Carpenters officials made quick profits from the sale of right-of-way along a road system to the State of Indiana. Hutcheson, a member of the AFL-CIO Executive Council, has said no union funds were involved. Hoffa is reported siding with Hutcheson. Thus two powerful organizations in the AFL-CIO, the 850,000-member Carpenters and the lVi-million member Teamsters, p o s s i_b 1 y times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, Aug. 13, 1957 % SHIPPING STAMP . .

"Things that have been exposed are things that labor should not be proud of," he said. "I'm in- t e r e s t e d in eradicating these things . . . There should not be any change in the policy of cooperating with any committee turning up corruption in labor." Switch Convention Meany said after the opening session the AFL-CIO has switched its convention, which starts Dec. 5 from Miami Beach to Atlantic City. He said the change was related to a newspaper investigation of "a condition existing in some hotels" in the Miami Beach area. Meany did not give specific reasons but declared, "We don't like it." The Miami Herald published a series of articles last spring by reporters who said they found prostitution and gambling flourishing with little fear of police interference. In Miami Beach. Charles Goldbert, owner of the Delano Hotel, said the AFL—CIO "is a group which wants everyone to live up to contracts, but they're breaking their contract with us." Bonus Bonds Delay Laid to Rising Rates DES MOINES r/rV-Rising interest rates on the nation 's money market are pushing Iowa 's bonus for Korean War veterans further and further out of reach. Unless there is a significant and unexpected reversal in the way interest rates are going, there appears little likelihood of selling bonds to pay the bonus, State Treasurer M. L. Abrahamson said Monday. The 1955 Iowa Legislature voted a 26-million-dollar bonus fund to be shared by the state's Korean War veterans and the bonus was approved by the voters in the 1956 general election. The lawmakers specified the bonus money must be raised by selling state bonds and tnat the state could not pay more than l x h per cent interest on those bonds. Because investors can get higher interest elsewhere, they are not interested in the 2V4 per cent on the bonds. The bonus law presently is involved in a friendly court test to determine its legality. The Iowa Supreme Court is expected to rule in the case before the end of the year. Abrahamson said he will advertise the bonds for sale as soon as the court rules they are legal. But he does not expect any bidders under present money market conditions. Everett Ocken Commander of Legion at Breda (Timet Herald Newt Service) BREDA — Fred F. and Norman J.
