Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - February 26, 1964, Dover, Ohio Subject Of Sex, 'Party Girls' Rears Ugly Head In Baker Scandal WASHINGTON (AP) - The subject of sex and party girls has finally been brought into the Bobby Baker hearings and Republicans have warned it is an angle that shouldn’t be “hushed up.” The party girl question was flung into the public record Tuesday for the first time «;s the Senate Rules Committee questioned Baker, resigned secretary to the Senate’s Democratic majority, about his business dealings. Sen. Carl T. Curtis, R-Neb., asked Baker whether he had supplied entertainment “including party girls” for various businessmen. Baker refused to answer. The committee also released a transcript of a Dec. IO closed door session in which Curtis and Sen. Hugh Scott, R - Pa., argued the committee’s authority to explore such matters. Curtis contended that girls were solicited on government telephone lines entertained pros pective customers and thus were part of the “business promotion apparatus.” Scott said he also believed “the use of call girls” for business promotions was well within the scope of the Baker investigation. A reporter’s efforts to reach Scott for comment proved fruit less. Curtis suggested it w’as too soon to give all details and there was no ^gpmment from the committee’s chairman. Sen. B. Everett Jordan, D-N.C. The Dec. IO transcript quoted this blunt statement by Curtis: “We (the Republican minority) think that every impropriety should be gone into, and we think that until it is done the < .cud is cast over all the fine men and women working for the Senate.’’ “Are you suggesting that personal or sexual peccadillos would be within the framework of this committee?” demanded Sen. Claiborne Pell, D - R I., another member. “Yes,” Curtis answered. “I would strongly disagree,” Pell replied. Curtis said that even if the investigation's scope is limited to Baker’s business affairs, the former Senate official haN claimed a net worth in excess of $2 million and “this didn't hap pen just by clever operation ** “Party girl-, and entertaining were part of the business promotion apparatus,'’ Curtis continued. “The facts are available if we pursue it.' “If this is hushed up.” Curtis warned his colleagues. “It will be very, very bad for the committee.” Bakers Refuses Secretary To Talk VOL 60.

(AP) - He was a tall, quiet scholar and the early terms he spent at Rice University gave portent of a bright future in mathematics. She was a loner. She avoided crowds, social groups and organizations of almost every kind. She belonged only to the National Honor Society for top scholars. But a campus romance blossomed, then went awry when the young man had psychiatric problems. It ended Saturday in a $10.50-a-week hotel room. They were found Tuesday, each shot In the head. Police termed it murder and suicide. The pistol was found in his hand. Miss KayLah Holcomb, 20 of Clay Indicates Ring Retirement (Early Story On Page 15) MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)-A subdued Cassius Clay, the new heavyweight boxing champion, told a press conference today that he seriously is thinking about retirement from the ring. “No I am not joking,” the 22-ycar old Louisville sensation said. “I don’t like to fight, I don’t like to get hurt. I don’t like to hurt anybody. “I only fight to make a living and when I have enough money I won’t fight anymore.” Cassius, talking in a low monotone that contrasted greatly to his earlier loud, shouting ★ Wires Reveal Fans' Disgust In Title Fight MIAMI BEACH. Fla. (AP>-The Miami Beach Boxing Commission was swamped today with wires from all over the country protesting the Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston heavyweight title fight, which was called, among other things, “a disgrace” and “an insult to boxing.” Bill Glick, secretary of the commission, made this disclosure. Wires had been received from all parts of the nation. A commission meeting was scheduled later in the day. antics, contradicted himself immediately, however, by saying his immediate future was fighting. He declared he would again fight Sonny Liston, whom he stopped Tuesday night in the seventh round technical knockout, or any other fighter the public wanted him to meet. The new champion was asked if he planned to retire after one more big fight, which now would be expected to gross perhaps $10 million. It was at this point that Clay dropped his retirement bombshell, saying in a low voice, “I am thinking about retiring right now.” However, few of the newsmen took the statement seriously since the young descendant of a Kentucky slave has proved himself one of the greatest actors See CLAY, Page 13 nearby Baytown, a beauty queen and a president’s honor roll student at Rice.

Young Calhoun left a brilliant high school record at College Station, but withdrew from Rice for a year, Rice officials said, to get psychiatric treatment.

WASHINGTON (AP) Carole Tyler, Bobby Bakers attractive secretary, refused today to answer questions about her part in the former Senate aide’s get-rich-quick deals. ‘‘On the advice of my attorney,’’ she said, "I refuse to answef any questions that may be propounded to me by members or employes of this committee other than those wluch relate to my nam® and identification as the person named in said subpoena."

She followed Baker by one day on the witness stand before a standing - room - only crowd and live television cameras in the marble-columned Senate caucus room. Unlike Baker, the sun-tanned Miss Tyler did not object to live television cameras. Today's hearing lasted less than an hour. Like Baker, she refused to answer questions on grounds of possible self-incrimination, and also invasion of privacy. And like Baker, she, too, had a big-name attorney by her side. Baker’s attorney was Edward Bennett Williams, famous aa a defense lawyer in headline cases. Miss Tyler's attorney is Myron CI. Ehrlich, 33, a veteran of practice in the District of Columbia and brother of famed Sen Francisco lawyer Jake Ehrlich. Chestnut-haired Miss Tyler arrived IO minutes early for the hearing. The lithe 24-year-old was described by Baker as his cousin when he moved her into a swank four-bedroom townhouse where she still lives. She now works in Baker’s law office. The Rules Committee w-hich Tuesday heard Baker refuse more than IOO times to answer questions put off a decision whether to recommend he be cited for contempt of Congress, punishable by a year's imprisonment, a $1,000 fine, or both.

Traffle Jam At School Is 'Hazardous' Early morning traffic congestion at 6th and Walnut St. has been officially declared a traffic hazard. Dover Police Chief Garrison G. Groh said today. The jam-up is caused by parents dropping their children off at the school. Groh urged parents to drive farther south on Walnut St. and to let their children off at the high school entrance to ease the congestion. Another alternative he suggested was to discharge their passengers at the 6th St. entrance of the school. A special hazard is created at noon and in the afternoon during inclement weather, Groh added, and he urged parents to use the alternatives at those times. Sheriff A. J. Young has “in- ( herited” a new job — inspecting i junkyards. According to the Ohio Revised Code, the sheriff of each coun-: ty “shall inspect every junkyard i that is located within his juris-| diction and for which a license : has been issued by the county auditor.” I Young, according to Section 4737.10, is to submit a written report of each examination to the auditor. The code, which became effective Jan. I, requires the owner of each junkyard to purchase a $25 permit for the operation. The license is renewable yearly ! for $10. I The law requires that, within one year, any person operating ! or maintaining a junkyard within I.OOO feet of a state or county road or within 300 feet of a township road shall have a fence erected if such junkyard is not obscured by natural objects. By ROBERT H. ROWAND NEW ORLEANS (AP)^Boats and divers looking for the wreckage of the huge Eastern Air Lines jet that crashed into Lake Pontchartrain gathered at daylight on a point where one boat “hooked onto something big.” The four-engine DC8 crashed int the lake some 20 miles north of New Orleans nine minutes after takeoff from New Orleans International Airport at 2:01 a m. Tuesday. All 58 aboard died. The jet. with a capacity of 126 passengers, was on the second lap of a flight from Mexico City to New Orleans, to Atlanta, to Washington,. to New York City. It has 51 passengers and a crew of seven. By nightfall, which forced suspension of the search, only bits of the wreckage had been recovered, along with what was described as bits of bodies. A Coast Guard boat snagged something big near the north shore of the lake, which is about 30 -miles kl diameter, but darkness prevented divers from further investigation. The Coast Guard said the object might be a main part of the fuselage. Chances of finding any large part, which could have trapped most of the bodies, seemed remote after reports indicating the airliner exploded.

Breyer. who is in his last year of pre-mod studies at Otterbein College in Westerville, admitted he was at his parent’s home on Saturday when a sheriff came for questioning, but he personally did not appear and did not know what his parents told the sheriff. He said he was at school yesterday when papers were served on his parents and himself. The Breyers were married Dec. 16, 1961. The child. Bridget, was born on Jan. 4, 1963. After spending a month at the home of her parents, Mr. and persons at Mandeville, on the north shore of the lake and about IO miles from the apparent crash area, reported hearing an explosion noise near the time the craft disappeared from contact. One woman said she thought she heard thunder but “there was no rolling after-effect. It was just cut off short.” A young woman said she heard what “sounded like a gun.” A worker on a dredge anchored in the lake said he saw a “bunch of green fire” near the 27-mile long Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, and radioed the Coast Guard. ! A veteran Eastern pilot said the jet could have reached a height of some 16,000 feet after it got over the lake, j Eastern said the plane made i routine checks after takeoff. I and gave no alarm before it dis-S appeared from radar contact. ! The Weather Bureau said there was no air turbulence in the area. Visibility was generally good after a rainstorm passed over. 2 Car Thieves Caught After Patrol Chase Two Pennsylvania youths ar® being held in the State Patrol headquarters at Cambridge following a high-speed chase last night that ended near Port Washington.
