Wednesday, Aujurt 6, mark Gloucester Co. appeal rejected WASHINGTON (UPI) Gloucester County. N.J.. parts 01 which were hit hard by the recent flooding, will not be declared a federal disaster area. Twelve other counties in the state have been proclaimed federal disaster areas by President Ford. The rejection for Gloucester County came Tuesday, a week after Rep. James J. Florio. DN.J., toured affected areas along with representatives of the Federal Disaster Assistance Ad- ministration. Florio estimated the damage in the county "well in excess of S10 and much more severe than in neighboring Salem and Cumberland counties, which were declared federal disaster on wersary HIROSHIMA, Japan (UP1) Thirty years ago today, the United States dropped the world's first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Thousands of the city's residents, many still scarred from the attack, gathered to observe a moment of silence and release hundreds of doves in memory of the tens of thousands killed in the holocaust. An unidentified young man lunged at the city's mayor as he began a speech in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The youth, who came within 30 feet of Mayor Takeshi Arai. was dragged away by police. "Thirty years after this event, many in Hiroshima must pursue their lives unable to expel the nagging fear that they will some day be struck down by radiation-related Aral said. "We continue to appeal that there shall be no more Hiroshlmas." At the edge of the Peace Park loomed the gutted dome of the city's Industrial Exhibition Building, burned during the A-bomb explosion. The bleak skeleton, blackened by fire, is left standing as a reminder of the bombing. The ceremonies began shortly after 8 a.m., today, the time the bomb exploded over Hiroshima 30 years" ago with the force of tons of TNT, instantly leveling the center of the city. The persons assembled in the park observed a moment of silence while a deep bell from a Buddhist-temple rang seven times. After the dlence hundredtoCdom were released into the air, filling the iky with whiteness.

Bonner, have been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of violating the Federal Energy Ad- ministration's crude oil entitlements program. The five-count indictment was the first criminal action filed against a major oil corporation for alleged willful failure to comply with the crude oil allocations rules which began last January. Contractor granted immunity PITTSBURGH (AP) Michael Baker Jr., a Beaver County contractor and president of the Penn State board of trustees, testified under a grantof immunity Tuesday before a federal grand jury looking into alleged kickbacks on state contracts.

Hiss to practice law again BOSTON (AP) Alger Hiss, whose conviction in a spy case helped bring Richard M. Nixon to national prominence 25years ago, has been reinstated to practice law in Massachusetts. Hiss. 70. said he was the ruling. He hopes to practice law again in the Boston area.'

Foursome -in an auto When two married couples get into one car to go to a party, you can tell their social status by where they sit. Or so says a student of such matters. If they're laboring folk in the beer-and-pretzel set, the two husbands typical- ly will climb into the front seat, leaving the back seat for the wives. If they're of the middle-class small-business group, each wife most respectably will sit beside her own husband. But if they're the nifty rich, the husbands most likely will place themselves next to each other's wives in innocent gallantry. CASBAH Q. "Wasn't it in 'Algiers' that Charles Boyer said. 'Come with me to the A. No. he never said it in any film. How it got started. I don't know. But it's thought to be the second best example of word-of-mouth advertising in modern history. Best example is "Kilroy was here." A MANUFACTURER of chairs says the hip measure- ment of the average woman today is smaller than that of her counterpart a generation ago, but the hip measure-, ment of the average man now is greater. Why the men seem to be getting bigger in the seat and the women appear.to-be getting littler thereabouts is a mystery. I'll put a researcher on this, if I can find one who's not too shy.

Remarkable. Each was 15 when they married. Not likely any others can break that record, what? and arc welcomed and will be tued M WASHINGTON (AP) The Central Intelligence Agency has made significant profits on two of its front operations, CIA Director William E. Colby testified today. Colby told the House in- telligence committee in prepared testimony that the CIA made considerable profits from Air America, an airline that aided CIA efforts in Southeast Asia, and from a CIA pension fund. Air America is being disposed of while the pension fund con- tinues to operate, although Colby said the profits have been turned into the Treasury since 1973. Colby did not specify the profit levels. Most of the CIA's front operations, which the agency calls proprietaries, have been unprofitable, the director said. "I foresee a continuing need to use the proprietary mechanism to further ac- complishment of agency Colby said. Colby defined proprietaries as "apparently commercial entities that are in. reality controlled by the agency." He said, "Such companies provide cover and support for clan- destine activities and enable us to carry out administrative tasks discreetly." Most proprietaries have fewer than ten employes, but "a very few of our former proprietaries, such as Radio Free Europe and Air America. have been fairly large entities." Radio Free Europe, which transmits broadcasts to Eastern Europe, has been funded under regular congressional appropriation since its link with the CIA was revealed. Air America "provided cover and otherwise supported our efforts in Southeast Colby said. "Its net assets are being turned in to! the Treasury." The pension fund was described by Colby as "a financial enterprise which enables the agency to ad- minister certain sensitive trusts, annuities, escrows and insurance arrangements without attribution to the agency. It enables us to insure with a controlled company some of our activities we could not expose to regular insurance companies. It enables us to pay annuities to individuals whose links with the U.S. government must remain secret." In the past, the proprietary companies retained their profits, Colby said. The in- telligence chief said that by 1973 "accumulated 'profits amounted to a considerable sum" so the excess was reported to Congress and used to reduce the amount ap- propriated. However, the CIA's general counsel advised that this did not constitute the full ap- propirations process and "subsequent profits have been, and will be delivered to the Colby, said. A Pentagon official was. quoted as telling the committee Tuesday that two U.S. in- telligence agencies split over whether Egyptian troop movements in 1973 meant maneuvers or an attack. MONSTER MARRIAGE Two movie monster fans, Keith Reber, 20, of San Joe Calif., and {Catherine Engel, 19, of Garden Grove, Calif., emerge from Universal Studios as Frankenstein's monster and his bride after a real wedding. Voting Hoffa fosfer son seen act to be rival of father's extended That badge don't scare me one bit' HESPERUS, Colo. (AP) A sign at the entrance to Violet Smith's King Coal Mine proclaims. "No inspectors allowed on this property. We are capable of minding our own business." Mrs. Smith means it. Four government inspectors escorted by three federal marshals are the latest to find out. "I made them make a fast U turn, all seven of them. Just a little old woman running a coal mine." said Mrs. Smith, who turns 70 next month. She says she told one of the marshals who flashed his star at her, "That badge don't scare me one bit. Get the hell out of here." The marshal was trying to get Mrs. Smith and her burly son, John, to read an order from U. S. District Court empowering the marshals to help the in- spectors go into the mine. Mrs. Smith said her son told them what they could do with the order. Mrs. Smith said the federal men gave up and drove away, leaving the court order behind. She said some of her 10 employes picked it up. burned it "and held services for it." s John Barton. District 9 manager in Denver for the Office of Coal Mine Health, and Safety, said the incident on Monday didn't amount to much "other than some strong language. "We requested permission to inspect the mine as required by law. and she refused to allow us to do it. We basically are trying to do what the law requires us to do, and she refuses to let us in at all." Although federal inspectors are required to ap- prove health and safety standards in underground mines four times a year, they haven't been inside the King Coal Mine for 3'2 years. Mrs. Smith and her husband Irvin, 73, have operated the mine for some 48 years on a federal lease. The last few years have been hectic. They're under a temporary injunction from federal court in Denver to let inspectors in, and the govern- ment has billed their bonding company for alleged'underpayments of royalties on coal taken from the lease. That, like Mrs. Smith's problems with the Mine Safety Enforcement Administration, is in the courts. Mrs. Smith says she considers it all encroachment by federal bureaucrats. "They will have to come here and she said. us they'll have to kill. No one is gonna bother this mine." Mrs. Smith says that her sign doesn't apply to all inspectors, just those sent by Was'ington. "They'd better keep the hell out of she said. "We have a state inspector who is very nice. We don't need the feds." And she proudly displays two safety awards given to the mine by state inspectors. WASHINGTON (API President Ford is signing a sevenyear extension of the Voting Rights Act, the land- mark civil rights legislation credited with dramatic in- creases in black political participation since being enacted in 1965. Without Ford's signature, the law would expire at midnight today. The 1965 law attacked elec- toral discrimination against blacks in seven Southern states. The extension broadens the coverage to areas in 24 states where more than 5 per 'Cent of voting-age residents are Mexican-American, Alaskan natives, American Indians or or of Asian ancestry. Included are certain voting districts of New York City: Texas, and parts Of California and Colorado. The extension also includes the original act's nationwide ban on literacy tests. The measure requires federal pre-clearance of voting district changes and permits federal registration and election examiners to go into areas that are covered to check records and voting procedures. It also bans for 10 years English-only elections in states and political subdivisions in which more than 5 per cent of votingage citizens are members of any single language majority. Under this provision, a city might be required to print three ballots in English, Spanish and Chinese, or perhaps another language. The House had voted a lOyear .extension of the 1965 bill, but agreed to the Senate's seven- year version without going to a time-consuming conference DETROIT The .St. Louis Post Dispatch reported today that the foster son of missing ex-Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa who served as Hoffa's bodyguard was seen in the company of a close associate of Teamsters President Frank Fitzsimmons, Hoffa's rival for Teamster leadership, the day after Hoffa disappeared. Hoffa's family has said it is looking for Charles "Chuckle" O'Brien, Hoffa's foster son. since Thursday the day after Hoffa disappeared. And the FBI also has said they would like to question O'Brien. A man who identified himself as O'Brien called The Detroit News Tuesday night and said: "I don't want to tell you where I'm at but I'm out of town. I'm safe and all right." A Detroit television station received a similar call. The station was told O'Brien was away on union business. Hoffa's daughter. Mrs. Barbara Crancer, told The Associated Press today that the family still had not heard from O'Brien. "All we're asking is for him to tell the she Mrs. Crancer would not elaborate on what she meant by that, nor would she say if the family believes O'Brien is linked in some way to the disappearance of the former Teamster chief. The Post-Dispatch quoted unnamed sources as saying that O'Brien had been seen getting into a car on the morning after Hoffa's disappearance. The sources said the car was driven by a man close to Fitzsimmons, but the sources refused to identify the man. The sources also told the Post-Dispatch that O'Brien got into, the car a about 7 a.m. Thursday near the Machus Red Fox restaurant. Hoffa was last seen outside the restaurant last Wednesday afternoon. Friends, said it was not unusual for O'Brien to be missing for days at a time, but that it was expected he would vant to be with the Hoffa family during their ordeal. Hoffa selected his onetime close friend Fitzsimmons to, become Teamster president after Hoffa was forced to step down from the post, but they became bitter rivals when Hoffa tried to reassert his control of the union upon his release from jail. Hoffa was released from federal prison in 1971 after former President Richard M. Nixon commuted his 13-year sentence on the condition that the former' union boss not engage in union activities until 1980. Hoffa is appealing the restriction in the courts, arguing the union ban was a deal worked out by the White .House and Fitzsimmons. Meanwhile, the FBI said it is studying some of Hoffa's private notes in an effort to retrace activities" of the -ex: Teamster boss just before ,he disappeared, a source said today. FBI officals also said they would like to question O'Brien, who was raised by Hoffa from'. the age of 3, but there is no official search for the 41- yearold O'Brien, himself a Teamsters' official. The family also said that it had received i no responses to its offer Tuesday ot; a reward for in- formation revealing the whereabouts of Hoffa. Sen. Bayh wants to be president HARRISBURG, Pa. (UPI) Indiana Sen. Birch Bayh says he wants to be president "to kick a few rear ends, knock a few heads together and get this county turned around." Bayh made the remarks at a news conference Tuesday, the same day "The Committee for Birch Bayh in 76" filed its papers with the Federal Elections Commission in Washington that allow Bayh to collect money. "At this stage I'm just testing the Bayh said. "We want to try to find out whether there are enough people across the nation who believe in Birch Bayh to put together a presidential campaign." Bayh was in town to address the Pennsylvania Welfare Department's Juvenile Justice Day Conference. Later in the day he went to Philadelphia for his campaign's first Penh-. sylvania fund raiser. As with many of the other Democratic hopefuls, Bayh withheld a formal an- nouncement. He said )that would be made this fall if his'-' committee gets enough support" and enough money to run.ta viable campaign. Burger refuses to reinstate attorney to Little defense RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) A Washington, N.C., jailer has testified that Joan Little was a nice and cooperative prisoner before she fled the Beaufort County jail, leaving another jailer dead in her cell. George Ellis Tetterton was the 16th witness for the prosecution as the state sought to build a case around its claim that the 21-year-old black woman stabbed jailer Clarence Alligood in order to escape. Tetterton, 64, a jailer in Beaufort County for 13 years, testified Tuesday that Miss. Little was the only woman in- mate at the time of Alligood's death last Aug. 27: Under cross examination, he said Miss Little behaved well while in the Jail "I never seen nothing out of the way. She always cooperated mighty nicely, the same way every day-" Meanwhile, Chief Justice Warren E. Burger of the U.S. Supreme Court refused to reinstate Morris Dees to Miss Little's, defense team. Trial Judge- Hamilton Hobgood, removed Dees on July 30 after a witness accused him of asking her to tell a lie. Burger gave no reason for turning down Dees', petition. A team of lawyers headed by former Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark told Burger there should have been a hearing before Dees was removed per- manently. They said his removal deprived Miss Little of her "right not to be deprived of her life without due process of her right to counsel of her choice and her right to confront witnesses. Hobgood said he would rule today on a defense bid to ex- clude the testimony of a State Bureau of Investigation chemist who examined the shirt and undershirt Alligood was wearing at the time of his death. William Pearce testified Tuesday in the absence of the jury that he examined the shirts last week. He said there were six holes in the outer shirt and five holes in the undershirt. He said they appeared to have been made by a small, sharp object. The chemist said the pattern of holes in the outer shirt In- dicated it was at least partially buttoned when the jailer was stabbed. The, shirt was un- buttoned when the body was found When the Jailer's body was discovered, he was clutching ari ice pick. He was naked from the waist down. Miss Little contends Alligood came to her cell to attack her sexually and that she herself with his ice pick. Defense attorney Miller said the fact Pearce was-' asked to examine the clothing for the first time last week indicates a last minute search for evidence on the part of the state. "They seem to feel that, maybe they don't have a Miller said after Tuesday's session. At the close of testimony Tuesday, Beaufort County Dlst. Atty. William Griffin asked that the jury be taken to Washington, N.C., to Inspect the jail. Griffin said be considered it essential for the Jurors to see the scene of the slaying. HobfooduM he would rate no fee motion later.
