(AP) Fresh criminal charges piled up Thurs- day against Billie Sol Estes, the West Texas promoter whose chemical fertilizer, grain storage and cotton growing operations in- volved millions of dollars. A federal grand jury indicted Estes, 37, on charges of mail fraud and conspiracy from one .state tos another. There, .counts in the in- dictment, which also other men and a business firm. The same grand jury accused them earlier of fraud through mortgages on fertilizer tanks, charging some of the tanks never existed. Estes' varied enterprises are in the hands of a court-appointed re- ceiver. He testified last week that his debts exceeds assets by about million. Creditors are studying a plan to reorganize and operate the businesses in hope of getting all have been advised the federal their money back. Otherwise they court'will order bankruptcy pro- ceedings. Texas Atty. Gen. Will Wilson said in Austin, at about the same lime the indictment was returned here, that he will dig deeper into Estes' affairs in a court of inquiry at Pecos, the promoter's home town. Wilson has sought information about Estes' grain storage, and cotton -allotment dealings-and his relations with Washington officials in six previous' courts of inquiry. He has given notice of intent to file'a state antitrust suit against Estes. U.S. Dist. Judge R. E. Thoma- son said he would not require ad- ditional bond of Estes, who posted bail on the other federal indictments, returned April 5. The court's ruling also applies to the other defendants, free un- der smaller bonds.

Today's meeting of the union executive councils and negotiators for Eastern arid Pan Am flight engineers was called shortly after the AFL-CIO Flight Engineers In- ternational Association settled on a formula with Trans World Thursday and lifted a strike threat. The .probable course of the meeting would be to study the Trans World agreement, draw up a new proposal and plan further negotiations with Eastern and Pan Am in an effort to get more satisfactory terms than those be- ing .put. before Trans World en- gineers for' a ratification vote. _ The dispute between the engi- neers and the three airlines has been the "same. A strike notice is outstanding against Eastern and Pan no walkout has been called. The union called a strike against Trans World only. The union agreement with Trans World, reached in Washing- ton after marathon negotiations aided by Secretary of Labor Ar- thur J. Goldberg, provided a for- mula for cutting jet airliner cock- pit crews from four to three men. (Continued on Two) High temperature In Ada Thursday was 90; low Thursday night, 67; reading at 7 a. m.

Orr is president of Superior Manufacturing 'Co., the firm named in the indictment. Alexan- der is secretary and McSpadden is a director of the tank building- firm at Amarillo. The latest indictment charges a scheme to defraud by selling fer- tilizer tanks and other equipment with promises for future'delivery, while the equipment never was In Washington, U.S. Atty. ;Gen. Robert F. Kennedy said additional and better information on the case provided a basis for the latest in- dictment. The grand jury was dis- charged after advising Judge Thomason its investigation of Es- tes had been completed. Seven or eight witnesses were being summoned for the court of inquiry at Feeds, Wilson said. He would not disclose their names or discuss what phase of Estes' oper- ations would be probed. Dirksen Hurls Gestapo Charge At Department WASHINGTON Ev- erett M. Dirksen, (R-I11.) said to- day Agriculture Department re- search into the correspondence of two Republicans on the Senate committee investigating the Billie Sol Estes case smacks a little of a Gestapo technique. Dirksen, the Senate GOP leader and Rep. Charles A. Halleck of Indiana. House party leader, agreed at a news conference that the exposure of the department's action likely will make the inquiry more, rather than less invective. Certainly, tactics will Halleck said, such not serve to deter Chairman John L. McClellan, D- Ark., from pursuing a vigorous in- quiry by his Senate-Investigations subcommittee' into the depart- ments's dealings with the Texas wheeler-dealer in .'cotton, fertilizer and grain-storage .who. is under indictment for fraud. "I th'ink it is rather astonish- Dirksen-said, "that two men who happen to be- on a committee which will conduct an investiga- tion should be singled out-to see whether something could be found that would be embarrassing." Halleck said that what.the de- tention at the Agriculture Depart- ment are Sens. Karl E. Mundt of South Dakota and Carl T. Curtis of Nebraska. Mundt and Curtis disclosed Thursday they had discovered the Agriculture Department was dig- ging out of its files all their 'corre- spondence with .the agency since 1953. The two only Republi- cans on'McClcllanls six-man-sub- committee, called it-an attempt by Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman to thwart .the investiga- tion, and to'curry favor with the Democratic members by not look- ing into.their writings. Mundt suggested President .Ken- nedy ought to speak out now. as to what he thought of such a- prac- tice, and also state publicly wheth- er this was the practice in federal agencies under congressional in- quiry. The two senators made public a sworn statement to subcommit- tee investigators'from Thomas R! Hughes, Freeman's executive secretary, acknowledging that his staff to 'dig out of the department's files copies of all, correspondence with waiiecK sara inai.

The Republicans getting this at Adenauer, Rusk Reach Agreement Secretary- Meets 70 Minutes With West German Head BONN, Germany (AP) Chancellor Konrad Aden- auer said he and U. S. Sec- retary Dean Rusk had reached, full agreement on Berlin and all other'matters of mutual U. S.-West" Ger- many interest at a private meeting today.

Opposes Compromise Adenauer, along with French President Charles de Gaulle, has felt that nothing would be gained from exploratory talks on West Berlin between the United States and the Soviet Union. He also had j bitterly opposed American propo- sals for a compromise on Berlin. Rusk told newsmen it was a great privilege to discuss a great many subjects of interest to the free world in the present situation. "Any American president and secretary of state has welcomed the opportunity of talking with the chancellor and profiting from his wisdom and Rusk said. Accept Responsibility "We accept our responsibility in the Atlantic community gladly. I have brought warm .greetings from President Kennedy and the respect and admiration of the American people.'1 Both men.-were smiling broadly for photographers. The 86-year-old chancellor appeared 'in an excep- tionally good humor and bantered with newsmen. MEETING IN PARIS Ruik, right, U.
