Y. Locals By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON (* — 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. ' Hoffa. Midwest boss of the Teamsters and heir apparent to Dave Beck as president of the giant union, also is slated to testify before^ the Senate Rackets Committee*" Tuesday, or possibly late today. The committee noared 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 right-hand man in the union, balked at answering questions about other Teamster affairs when fie appeared last winter before the regular Senate Investigations subcommittee. Awaiting Trial He challenged that group's jurisdiction. He was cited for contempt of Congress and now is awaiting trial. However, Mohn tqld 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. Mickey, a Teamster vice president and a candidate for union president, told the committee last week Hot'fa 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. Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) of the 'Rackets Committee, in denouncing what he called the "bogus charters," told newsmen the evidence showed "there was a conspiracy to procure and make use of these charters for fradulent purposes and unworthy objectives." 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." Du//es Warns Senate Of 'Grave Risks in Aid Cut WASHINGTON (#—Secretary of Stale 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 LONDON UP) — 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 II's i court. Churchill's Son-in-Law Scotland Yard indicated Monday this call may help them in piecing together the last hours of Beauchamp. . The 30-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. I was frantic. While I talked, suddenly the line seemed to go dead." Lady Jane called the police, who broke into Beauchamp's apartment and found him dead. Lady Jane camp home from a vacation in the south of France Saturday and saw Beauchamp in the evening. The phone call followed a few hours later.

' 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 risks." "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 anv 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* 1 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 behi nd 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, Ifayburn 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.

U. S. Assistant Secretary of the Army Dewey Short and Maj. Gen. Emerson C. Itschner, Army chief of engineers, /joined with Iowa Gov. Herschel Loveless in hailing the ISVi-million dollar Lock 19, biggest on the Mississippi. Sees Further Increase In remarks prepared for the mid-afternoon dedication ceremonies, Short noted that river traffic "has increased six times in the last 18 years and will still increase." 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. Short paid tribute to the Mississippi Valley Assn., the Upper Mississippi Waterway Assn., the Army Corps of Engineers and others who helped "accomplish this gigantic task." General Itschner, in his prepared remarks, said the new lock is providing speed and efficiency to the flow of river traffic. ."Today," he said, "the steady increase of water-borne transportation of raw processed materials and finished products. . . makes us more than ever aware that the 12,000-mile-long waterway system of the Mississippi is the aorta of the heartland of America." Important Link Itschner 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 1 as we continue to plan an integrated development," he said. Itschner also referred to Gavins Point as an aid in providing a navigable depth in the lower Mis- $ouri 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 boun- dairies." The day-long dedication celebration began with open house at new Lock 19 and the power house. A luncheon for distinguished guests was followed oy an afternoon parade and the dedication began at 3 p.m. SEEKS BALLOON RECORD . . . Wearing-a high-altitude pressure suit, Maj. David G.

The pinch was being felt more in Boston where 300 mailers struck Aug. JO in a contract dispute with the six morning and evening papers. Detroit's three newspapers suspended publication Sunday be- j cause of a labor dispute involving one of them. 'The executive secretary of the Detroit Newspapers Publishers A.ssn., 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.

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 ex pected 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 H p.m. Sunday to breath a mixture of oxygen and helium for some 10 hours before the launching. This was done to Flight See Page 8 Says Farmer Not Only One To Get Aid; Cites City Man WASHINGTON Smith (R-Kans) 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, "1 want to point out that the big cities are recipients of billions of dollars for their housing pro : grams. "If there is any group of businessmen and allied industries who have received more benefit from billion dollars for such programs! federal aid in the form of guarau- as urban redevelopment, slum j teed morgt^ages than the fru^- clearance and public housing ers of houses, 1 just don't know passed the House or are being'who they are." I/ft— Rep. Winl thinks it unfair that the farmer is so often singled out as a beneficiary of the lax 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 cities with your taic dollars—to tear down these so- called unsightly and blighted areas," he said in a newsletter to constituents. Bills generally authorizing two ulhprigi iucn pv Proposal By N.Y. Team Is Approved, 8-1 Move Contingent on Pul» fillment by Mayor of Promised Condition* (EARLY STORY: Page 2.) NEW YORK Wl-The Board 6f 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 th« National League, upon formal lap- plication 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.
