McClellan, D-Ark:, has said power sought by Teamster IK»SS Jimmy Hoffa theatens Hie nation's security, and has called on Congress to take af- firmalivc action toward controlling the union boss. , McClellan said in a speech to thefclatc Bar of Texas 7i)th convention Thursday thai Congress has fallen down in not adopting remedial legislation that would cure "shocking revelations in the field of -labor-management relations" uncovered two years ago by his Seriate permanent subcommittee on investigations. McClellan said he intends to introduce legislation to thwart Ilof- fa'.^attcmpt to mold a powerful coalliion of transportation unions. He disclosed that plan in a guest column written for Victor Ilicsel, a syndicated labor columnist. Hoffa has renewed a drive to form a coalition of land, sea and air transportation unions. McClellan wrote thai Ihe consequences of such a coalilion were "indeed frightful Io contemplate." "Mr. Hoffa and his satellite unj^is would largely control tho destiny of our free enterprise sys> tern," he wrote. He continued that his legislation would ' outlaw any pact among transportation unions such as Hoffa has proposed." McClellan said in an interview in Fort Worth lhal he was "not after Iloffa as an individual," adding thai he was slriving Io cor^rol Ihe tremendous power the Tclnnslers Union nrcsidenl seeks to obtain. "II is not it personal crusade against Hoffa but merely a campaign to challenge his power or the power of anyone who poses a threat to the nation's security," said tho senator. McClellan also said he .was working -on .legislation to work with problems of work stoppages an£ slowdowns at missile bases.

(AIM —The business end of an Atlas missile hurtled out of Ihe western sky like a blazing meteor and crashed into the Indian Ocean early today at Ihe end of the longest military roekel flighl on record—a H.OiiO-milc journey from Cape Canaveral.

On its all-over-water course, the warhead y.ipped east of the lip of Bra/.il and south of the Union of South Africa. Fifty-three minutes after Hit launch, two tracking planes and a .ship followed I lie cone's fiery path as il. plunged back into the heat, barrier of (he earth's atmosphere and dived on target, about 1,000 miles southeast 'of Capo Town, South Africa. The improved Atlas, made by General Dynamics r Astronautics, is the most ' powerful United Stales military rocket being test flown. Its three massive engine generate '100,000 pounds of thnml, '10,000 more than the earlier D missile, which has been opera tional- nearly Iwo years.
