The Teamsters president said he has talked with practically all AFL-CIO chiefs and they want him back — all except AFL-CIO President George Mcany, whom Hoffa called "a dopey, thickheaded Irishman." Hoffa said he is sure even his Detroit rival, auto workers head Waller RcullnA-, favors canceling Ihe Teamsters' three-year-old expulsion on corruption charges Hoffa said he could work with both Mcany and Rcuthcv dcspilr, personality conflicts lo bring all unions into ono federation. The Teamsters convention voted lo pay legal costs for its officials unions into one federation. Union President James R.

II made him the highest paid union official in the land But he said ho deserved it because he presided over the biggest U.S. labor organization. The clues increase over d^'o- gale protests would boost Hoffa's headquarters icvcnue to about $20 million a year. It would raise member dues requirements by ?1 per member per month.

The 2'1-hour strike, called to protest President Charles tie Gaulle's threat to partition Algeria into European and Moslem enclaves, was 90 per cent effective throughout Iho country and bolstered the exile rebel regime's prestige and bargaining position with the French. There were mass demonstrations of .support in neighboring Tunisia and Morocco. Ferhat Al) bas, head of the rebel exile government, told a crowd of Moroccans in Casablanca: "Algeria is one and indivisible. II, is not a gruycrc cheese which can bo carved up." A high French official in Algiers grimly admitted the disorders "hardly contribute" to UK chances of peaceful coexistence between Algeria's nine millioi Moslems and one million Enron peans or to association of an independent Algeria with France.

Water Supply Almost Gone in N. Plains Area By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Northern Wisconsin today was idded to the. drought-ridden Great Mains area as Minnesota sought iddilion of 1) more counties to the 24 already declared federal dis- ist.er tracts. Jn the western Dakolas, stockmen joined crop growers in deep concern over dwindling water sup plies and were moving cal He to jreencr pastures or preparing for heir early marketing. Grasshoppers were added lo the drought plague in eastern Mon- .ana, where federal-stale crop reporting services predicted many rielcls wouldn't, even be harvested. Sen. Alexander Wiley, H-Wis., frilled for early action by federal authorities to aid farmers in thai state's drought area. Unless there is rain soon, Wiley said Wednesday night that farmers all over Wisconsin would be suffering. Minnesota's Gov. Elmer L. Andersen said the worsening drought was bringing new appeals lo his office daily from farmers whose pastures arc browned over by Ihc searing sun and whose feed grain crops are wilted. Granling of the new disaster appeals would place IW of Minnc- .sola's 117 counties into the emergency category. In North Dakota, waler was drying up in wells, creeks and ponds to threaten stock along the western and southern boundaries. There has been no growth of pastures or wild hay in the western two-thirds for weeks, With temperatures in the high (IDs again, much small grain was reported beyond salvage. But the corn and soybeans in the eastern zones were accorded a chance, assuming some moisture does come. All of North Dakota was declared a disaster area ki.st week. Western South Dakota cattlemen were reported either moving herds to greener pastures and water or holding dispersal sales, disposing ol all but foundation slock. Charles Govern, cattle expert with the Soulh St. Paul (Minn.) Commission Co., said the unseasonable marketing forced by the aridity was bound to carry prices downward. But he added that housewives could look for lilile if any effect on prices they pay for meat, this year at least.
