Harriman Link To 'Strongamv Teamster Told WASHINGTON Another of Barney Baker's women testified today .the "strong'arm" teamster offi- cial was "very friendly" with New York Gov. Averell Harriman. Mrs. Ruth Brougher, 44, a Texas-born blonde serving ,a 15-year. man- slaughter term in Flor- ida, said Baker told her in 1955 he was "going back' to work" on Harriman's campaign. Brought from a prison to testi- fy before the Senate Rackets Com- mittee, she also said .Baker was "on the from New York and couldn't go back to the, state "until after Gov. Harriman was elected." Her. testimony was similar to that of Baker's divorced wife, who 1old the committee Tuesday that the 300-pound roving unionist was a "very friend of the.New York chief executive and that Ba- ker boasted he; could get- thing" from- Harriman. Mrs. Brougher said all she knew about Harriman was what- Baker told her in conversations -and let- ters and from "other sources." She said she understood Baker had "handed' out tickets of some sort" in Harriman's 1952 presi- dential primary campaign in' the District of Columbia and helped rally labor -support for him. The New York governor lias ac- knowledged that Baker worked for him 'in the District of Columbia campaign but that he knew .the. union leader .only casually. Mrs. Brougher- testified :sne. liv- ed with' 'Baker' at two estates, complete with .swimming pools, and a all rented by the burly; unionist, whose wife was in St. Louis. Her Harriman -testimony .-.began when she told of meeting Baker in New York at one their association. She- said Baker had told her he once "went to prison in New York '.'for throwing a stink bomb' onto a theater stage that killed' Joe. Penner's duck." Baker also' mentioned water- front slaying, she said, that caus- ed him. to flee New -York. "1 don't think he could to New York until after Gov-.THar- riman was she_ said.

About 40 people are expected to be recalled in the next few weeks, according to Alan Parry, general manager of the San Leandro plant. Caterpillar, manufacturers of lucl injection equipment, laid off 150 workers in cutbacks last fall and early this spring. In, January the company went temporarily to a four-day week, but resumed a five-day schedule six weeks later. Parry said the brightened local outlook is a. reflection of a general pickup of sales in the East and Midwest. The rate of recall, he cautioned, will depend on the rate of business upturn and demand for Caterpillar products .in the months ahead. WASHINGTON (UPI) President Eisenhower said can be.
