Giants Vote to Shift Baseball Franchise to Frisco Call Teamsters Vice-President in Labor Probe i To Answer Charges He Issued Charters for Phony N. Y. Locals By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON Wft - Einar 0. Mohn, executive vice president of the Teamsters -Union, was called for questioning today about testimony that he issued charters for phony locals in New York in a power plan engineered by James R. Hoffa. • Dulles Warns Senate Of 'Grave Risks in Aid Cut WASHINGTON UP)—Secretary of State Dulles told senators Monday that "the whole foundation of our security structure is endangered" by the House cut of $809,650,000 in the foreign aid appropriations bill. Churchill's Son-in-Law's Death Probed Hoffa, Midwest boss of the Teamsters and heir apparent to Dave Beck as president of the giant union, also in slated to testify before^ the Senate Rackets Committee" Tuesday, or possibly late today. The committee neared the end of its probe into charges that Hoffa teamed with racketeer Johnny Dio and other New York mobsters in an effort to extend his sway into the New York area. Mohn, Beck's righl*hand man in the union, balked at answering questions about other Teamster affairs when ne appeared last winter before the regular Senate Investigations subcommittee. j Awaiting Trial He challenged that group's jurisdiction. He was cited for contempt of Congress and now is awaiting trial. However, Mohn told a newsman he would answer the Rackets Committee's question without invoking any Fifth Amendment privileges against possible self-incrimination — a widespread practice among previous committee witnesses. Thomas L. Hickey, a Teamster vice president and a candidate for union president, told the committee last week Hoffa originated the plan to set up the phony locals in an effort to assure additional votes for his candidate, John O'Rourke, for president of the New York Joint Council of Teamsters. These locals, with officers but no members, had voting rights in the council election. The establishment of the locals was denounced as a fraud against the union by Martin Lacey, whom O'Rourke unseated. O'Rourke, in an earlier appearance before the committee, declined to answer questions about Teamster affairs the election or any relationship between him and Hoffa. Issued Charters Hickey and Lacey, in their tes- imony, named Mohn as the union official who actually issued the charters for the phony loeals. They said he acted at Hoffa's request. LONDON iff) — Antony Beauchamp made a 4 a.m. telephone call to the blonde sister of the Marquess of Londonderry only a few hours before he died. The marquess has been one of the critics of Queen Elizabeth H's court. Churchill's Son-in-Law Scotland Yard indicated Monday this call may help them in piecing together the last hours of Beauchamp. The 39 year-old society photographer and television producer was the husband of Sarah Churchill and son-in-law of Sir Winston Churchill. Beauchamp was found early Sunday morning sprawled across a bed in the fashionable Hyde Park apartment where he lived .alone. On a table rested a half empty box of sleeping pills! Beauchamp and his wife had been living apart for three years Lady Jane Van Tempest-Stewart, 25-year-old sister of Londonderry, told police: "I pleaded with Antony and tried to persuade him not to be foolish 1 was frantic. While I talked, sud denly the line seemed to go dead." Lady Jane called the police, who broke into Beauchamp's apartment and found him dead. Lady Jane came home from a vacation in the south of France Saturday and saw Beauchamp in the evening. The phone call followed a few hours later. Quiz 2 Other Women Two other beautiful women who knew Beauchamp were being questioned by police. Sharmini .Teruchelvam, dark- eyed model from Ceylon, also saw Beauchamp Saturday. She described him as "one of my dear est and closest friends." Miss Teruchelvam, who was the Suicide See Page 9 Mrs. Robb, Mrs. Weaver Will Teach If Congress is unwilling to provide the funds to help allies maintain their defenses, Dulles said, 'we face a new insecurity and a future of grave rfsks." "The Senate faces a great responsibility to save the nation from this peril." Heads Team Dulles headed a team of four top administration figures bidding at a meeting of the Senate Appropriations Committee for upward revision of the House-passed bill. Accompanying him to the session were John B. Hollister, outgoing foreign aid director; Adm. Arthur W. Radford, retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Nathan F. Twining, the new^chairman. Before the session began, Sen. Mundt (R-SD) told newsmen he would try to put Congress on record as favoring a requirement that nations receiving economic loans must make some annual repayment. "I think we should establish the principle that these loans are going to be repaid," Mundt said. "I am not particular how much money is paid back annually and I am perfectly willing to agree to some emergency exceptions. "But it will be better for us and for the recipient countries if they understand from the beginning that they must meet the annual interest payments and at least make a token payment on the principal. 'Bad Psychology' "I don't think we should permit a situation to arise where a country that has received a loan can go along for three or four years without paying on either interest and principal and then ask that both be canceled. That 4 sort of thing is bad psychology from both their standpoint and our own." There was no immediate indication as to the administration attitude toward Murdt's proposal. The Dulles - Hollister - Radford- Twining team met with the Appropriations committee behind closed doors, but their statements were made public. Their visit with the senators was only part of an intensive administration effort to. loosen the congressional purse strings for foreign aid. Ike, Rayburn Visit ' As another part of it, President Eisenhower invited House Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex* to the White House for breakfast and a talk which Press Secretary James C. Foreign Aid ....

He said it also showed the charters were issued to gangsters, criminals and racketeers both for rigging the joint council election and to serve hoodlums "as a kind of hunting license to prey on legitimate businesses and honest working people and union members."

Burns did not appear in court himself. The fines were the maximum on each count and were assessed by Howard Hamilton who was acting as police judge in the absence of Herbert Bennett. Bennett was an appointee of Burns about two years ago. The charges against,Burns were signed by Jim Strutzenberg and Norman Weimers. They told police they gave chase early Sunday to a car which had struck Strutzenberg's parked car in front of his home. They followed the car while it traveled three blocks in reverse before colliding with a parked car owned by James Crowley, they said. Strutzenberg and Weimers then reported the license number of the fleeing car to authorities and highway patrolmen subsequently stopped the car and found Burns at the wheel. Burns has been public safety commissioner for six years?

He said the new lock "will greatly improve the water resources from the Mississippi's headwaters to the Gulf of Mexico." He also said the Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, S.D., at whose dedication he spoke Sunday, would greatly improve conditions on the lower Missouri and lower Mississippi Rivers.

Important Link ltschner described Keokuk as 'an important link in the great system" and said "we forsee no end" of the steady growth in Mississippi River commerce. We have this great river working for us now as never before in history and it will continue to be our ally as long as we continue to plan an integrated development," he said. ltschner also referred to Gavins Point as an aid in providing a navigable depth in the lower Missouri River and said that with completion of a nine-foot channel to Sioux City "the State of Iowa will have a first class waterway on both eastern and western boundaries."

NEW YORK iff)—The Board Of Directors of the New York Giants voted Monday to move the team's baseball franchise to San Francisco in 1958. The announcement was made by Horace Stoneham, president of the Giants, who said the vote was 8-1.. The move, Stoneham said, will be contingent on the Mayor George Christopher of San Francisco fulfilling all the conditions promised. Must Keep Name One proviso was that the name of the "Giants" be retained. The transfer may be approved by Warren Giles, president of the National League, upon formal application by the Giants. The National League on May 27 granted permission for the-Giants to move to San Francisco and the Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles. Giles can grant permission for the shift even if the Dodgers decide not to move. Stoneham and a vice president of the club, Charles Feeney, said they would fly to California to take up the matter of drafting the territory from the Pacific Coast League. Reported Offers A major league team may take over a minor league territory but must pay damages to the minor league. The Giants are said to have offered the Boston Red Sox, who own the San Francisco club, $125,000 for the franchise. Another proposal is that the Giants will swap their American Assn. franchise at Minneapolis to the Red Sox for San Francisco, even up. The Giants' lease on the Polo Grounds, for which they pay $55;000 a year, does not expire until 1961, The Giants' fixed charges at the Polo Grounds have been $160,000 a year, counting taxes and parking lot rental.

Cnn't Do the Job Radio and television tried to fill the news gap' but merchants in both cities were hamstrung for a place to advertise their August sales. The pinch was being felt more in Boston where 300 mailers struck Aug. 10 in a contract dispute with the six morning and evening papers. Detroit's three newspapers suspended publication Sunday because of a labor dispute involving one of them. The executive secretary of the Detroit Newspapers Publishers Assn., Robert C. Butz, said that under joint contracts "a strike against one paper is a strike against all." Detroit's newspaperless days began with an overtime argument at the News. The News' mailers, members of the independent International Mailers Union, threw a picket line around the News Building Saturday in protest at the firing of 87 mailers. The mailers were fired for refusing to work overtime Saturday morning. A union spokesman said the men were suffering "fatigue hardship" from working a double shift Friday. Free Press, Times Quit Members of the Teamsters Union refused to cross the News picket line. The Free Press and the Times, after putting only short press runs on the streets Sunday, suspended publication. Raymond E. Brown, vice president of the 1MU, Monday proposed Strikes See Page 9 In his first radio report, Maj Simons said "everything is going well." At that time the balloon was at 50,000 feet. An endurance test of man's ability to live in an artificial atmosphere for long periods of time at high altitude, the flight was expected to give the Air Force important information on what pilots of the future must contend with during travel through .space.' Scene of the launching was H. M. Hanna Co.'s Portsmouth mine on the Cuyuna iron range. Time and place of the launching was withheld from the public because of the critical nature of the flight, but hundreds of cars gathered near an observation platform overlooking the 425-foot deep open pit iron mine to witness the event. 102,000 Feet Up Maj. Simons, chief of the space biology branch of the Aero-Medical Laboratory at Holoman Air Development Center, Alamogordo, N.M., was to rise to a maximum altitude of 102,000 feet, then remain there until starting his descent Tuesday afternoon. Winzen Research Inc., Minneapolis, project contractor for the Air Force, said the balloon would drive 30 miles southeast on ascent, then float 400 to 500 miles across North Dakota before starting its descent near Miles City in eastern Montana. Maj. Simons entered the aluminum capsule at 11 p.m. Sunday to breath a mixture of oxygen and helium for some 10 hours before the launching.

Winl Smith (R-Kans) thinks it unfair that the farmer is so often singled out as a beneficiary of the tax dollar. City dwllers gel their full share, too, he said today, asserting that the federal urban redevelopment program is "designed to milk the U. S. treasury of tax funds." "This program provides that the federal government will provide our large c»ties with your tax dollars—to teaf down these so- called unsightly and blighted areas," he said in a newsletter to constituents. Bills generally authorizing two billion dollars; for such programs as urban redevelopment, slum clearance and public housing passed the House or are being Hold Youth, 16, In Extortion Case CEDAR RAPIDS (ff)-Carl Allen Harris, 16, of Cedar Rapids, was held Monday in what authorities described as an attempt to extort $2,500 from a bank official here. The youth was arrested by FBI agents and Cedar Rapids police Saturday. He was jailed on a federal charge of extortion in lieu of $2,000 bond following an appearance before U. S. Commissioner Charles Benesh Sunday. Officers said Harris on July 30 sent a letter to Marvin Selden, a vice president of the Merchants National Bank here, in which he threatened death or injury to Selden or members of his family unless Selden'delivered $2,500. Selden immediately notified authorities and participated in arrangements for the boy's arrest. In two additional letters, officers said, young Harris arranged for a final contact with Selden Saturday night. He was arrested on a downtown street. The Harris boy quit school in the ninth "•grade. He lived with his mother, Mrs Addie Harris. Arthur Myers' Move Here From Virginia Mr, and Mrs. Arthur Myers and children, Dennis. Frances a n d Clyde, who moved to Carroll from Fairfax County, Va., recently, are living in the residence at 1703 Quint Avenue which they bought from Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Finken. Mr, Myers is operations field- representative ot the Rural Elec. trification Administration in western Iowa. He has been. with the REA since 1950, his last prior as-; signment having been in the main office at Washington, D. C. considered in th« Senate, he said He added that th* budget cannot be cut and taxes cannot be reduced if Congress continues to pass such authorizations. Smith said it gets a bit "monotonous" to Congressmen from rural districts tc hear so many references made to farm subsidies and farm programs. "Just for the record," he said, "I want to point out that the big cities are recipients of billions of dollars for their housing programs. "If there is any group of businessmen and allied industries who have received more benefit from federal aid in the form of guaranteed morgtgager; than the builders of houses, I just don't know who they are."
