Dismiss Two In Baltimore BALTIMORE, Nov. 28 (/P)--Two veteran members of the Internal Revenue Collector's staff here wore those whose dismissal or forced resignation was announced , today in Washington. F. Joseph Ruppman, a deputy collector for 11 years, insisted he was not forced to resign, as the Washington announcement put it. "I resigned voluntarily because- I wanted to get out of the department," he declared. Mrs. Jessie M. Jones, a widow, was,-the other employe involved. She had worked in the Baltimore district office about 11 years and was a teller in the cashier's division. Mrs. Jones could not be reached for comment. Mrs. Jones was accused of fail- ing to account properly for Government funds, destruction of records and filing of false documents. Huppman was charged with falsification of an official document. Huppman said: "I was not forced to resign In fact, my resignation was not asked for. "A charge was made against me that was not correct. 1 could have appealed my case but I decided against it. I had two or three consultations with Washington officials about the charges and was vindicated of everything I was charged with. "It was contended that I was intoxicated. I have had ulcers and cannot drink." George Hofferbert, the district collector, said charges of drunkenness had nothing to do with it. He said Huppman's resignation had been forced "because of an irregularity we cannot permit among our employes. "It is iomethlng a lot of taxpayers have done end their acts haVc been overlooked. But we cannot overlook that in an em- ploye." Hofferbert said he had reported the irregularity to the Internal Revenue Bureau's intelligence section in Washington. He declined to give any details. "Yes and no," he said when asked if Huppman and Mrs. Jones were linked in the charges that brought about their resignations. Huppman's salary was between $5,000 and $5,800 a year. Mrs. Jones drew about $3,800 a year. 52.74 TAX RATE BALTIMORE, Nov. 28 .(#)--The City Council today adopted a $110.360.000 budget for 1952, the largest in Baltimore's history.
