Pioneer Who Penned State Constitution Booster for Western Iowa DES MOINES WV-Cbicago was "a fast little place" and the Rock n "linmdusteria audlgi Mounpno Mounain gold rush an "impudent humbug" to William Gray, who put the Iowa Constitution into ornate handwriting 100 years ago. Two letters, dated May 26, 1859, YOU CAN TRY FIXING YOURTV SET, BUT ITS BfTTm TO CALL US! Is Your Antenna Ready for Winter? This ad is good for free antenna inspection for the balance of this month. ALL CHANNEL ANTENNAS $9.95 t0 $34.95 Lee Todd TV fir Radio Service 627 N. Main — Dial 9948 from Gray to relatives in Chicago have been received from Mrs. Hugh Wilcox of Council Bluffs by Secretary of State Melvin D. Synhorst. The letters reveal Gray as an all-out booster of western Iowa, especially of his town of Harlan, which he described as "the very best point in western Iowa." In one of his letters Gray tells of writing the official copy of the Constitution at the state constitutional convention of 1857. He was the enrolling clerk of the convention, the letter says. Synhorst said Thursday the original Constitution and the letters appear to be in the same fancy handwriting. But he said he would submit both the letters and the document to a handwriting expert, just to make sure. Mrs. Wilcox said she found the 10 Tlmat Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thuriday, Aug. 21, 1957 letters in a cabinet in a small cottage at Council Bluffs she purchased several years ago from Amy Brackett. Mrs. Wilcox said she believes Mrs. Brackett was the "Sister Minerva" to whom Gray addressed one of the letters. The other letter is addressed to I. A. Brackett, who apparently was Gray's brother-in-law. In the letter to Brackett, Gray referred to some newspapers he had enclosed, including a copy of 'the Council Bluffs Bugle" which he said "still speaks confidently of the reality of the existence of gold in the vicinity of Pike's Peak." - "For my own part I have always viewed that whole thing as one o the most impudent humbugs of thi times," the letter says, adding: "Every day shows us some disappointed, chagrined fellows on their way homeward from the Kansas (sic) gold fields. "It is to be hoped that many of the disappointed ones will conclude to squat on sdme of the fertile prairies of western Iowa and lig for gold'here; for there Is gold ere although it may first appear the shape of corn, wheat,'rye, ugar cane, etc., etc." • Hoffa- (Continued trom Page 1) cations to every answer," Kennedy : told Hoffa. "Maybe some of these i recordings will help refresh your i memory." i After the March 10, 1953 conversation was played, Kennedy told Hoffa he had a number of similar phone conversations to play linking Hoffa intimately with Dio. Dio-controlled locals in the old AFL United Auto Workers (UAW) finally did get Teamsters charters in late 1955. Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) tried—without much luck—to get Hoffa to -explain some of the points in the recorded exchanges with Dio. For the most part, Hoffa said in response to point-by-point questions that he didn't quite recall what various portions of the talks meant. "Well, there is a relationship there that gives this committee some concern," McClellan said. "Dio is not a very popular fellow in some circles." "He wasn't then," Hoffa replied. "But I could see no reason to be hesitant to be seen with Dio to work out a problem concerning the Teamsters Union." Lists Criminal Charges That prompted Kennedv to reel off a long list of criminal charges brought against Dio before that period. In addition, he noted that the AFL Anti - Racketeering Committee had, just prior to the time in question, called officers of Dio's UAW local "persons with unsavory backgrounds." Another passage in the March 10, 1953 phone conversation went this way: Hoffa:—Somebody was putting in the rap against you; I don't know who the h— he is— Dio: Uhuh. Hoffa: Well, we'll be there anyway- t • Dio: Yeah, well he told me—he i told me ah, that I may have to be! on tap—(apparently at a Chicago meeting). Hoffa: Yeah; but when it comes up, we'll be there anyway— If any g trouble, we'll be there to defend it. Dio: Uhuh. i Counsel Kennedy said this i showed Hoffa, as early as 1953, [was fighting Dio's battles in labor I circles. "I'm saying," Kennedy told Hoffa at one point, "you met and discussed with Dio on several occasions." But Hoffa insisted he can't recall such talks. Kennedy said that Sen. Ives (RNY) had remarked during the hearings on Hoffa's good memory for most details. Kennedy said "it amazes me" to hear Hoffa say he can't remember these talks. "It may amaze you," Hoffa replied, "but I assure you my memory is such ... I can't recall those conversations if there were such." Hoffa had acknowledged that he did dicker with Dio about getting the UAW local into the Teamsters. But he swore that the only objective was to nail down Teamsters jurisdiction over 30,000 New York taxi drivers the Dio local was trying lo recruit into its ranks. Kennedy demanded that Hoffa answer "yes or no" whether, as he phrased the question, Hoffa had attempted to "bring Dio into the (Teamsters) union lo get a foothold in New York and circumvent Tom Hickey."
