Alexandra Hotel Dallas Hotel Garden Hotel Lethbridge Hotel Marquis Hotel Plainsman Hotel York Hotel Lefhbridge Labour Club Miners Library Club El Rancho (Outrider Beverage Room only) HOTEL AND RESTAURANT EMPLOYEES 1 BARTENDERS INTERNATIONAL UNION LOCAl NO. 73, IETHBRIDGE WASHINGTON (AP) A lawyer for James Hoffa said to- day that presidential adviser Henry Kissinger approved a >lan for the former Teamsters mion president to travel to Vietnam and ?eek the re- lease of United States prisoners of war. William L. Taub of New York said today that Kissinger was informed July 5 in San Clc- mente, Calif., that Hoffa had been invited by the North Viet- namese trade union movement to visit Hanoi. "Kissinger approved the Taub said, "but asked :hat the trip be postponed until after July 20." Taub was responding fo ac- .ions Thursday by State Secre- tary William Rogers who re- voked the passport validation that would have allowed Hoffa to travel to Hanoi. In barring Hoffa from vis- iting North Vietnam, Rogers said "private Ajnerican citizens should not be involved" in ne- gotiations concerning U.S. pris- oners there. Taub said he was outraged by Rogcrs's action and that he has demanded a statement from the secretary explaining why he revoked Hoffa's pass- port validation. The lawyer also took ex- ception with reports from Paris that North Vietnamese sources there had said Hoffa was never invited to moke the trip. "Mr. Hoffa was specifically invited by the North Vielnam- ese trade union movement and copies of two of these docu- ments were given personally to Kissinger during a lunch on July 5." Taub said. Copies were also sent lo Pope Paul in Rome, the lawyer said, as! as to officials of the jus- tice department In Washington. Rogers's decision lale Thurs- day afternoon was grounded of- ficially on "procedural irre- gularities" in the way the for- aid. "Give us one more year nd this will become appar- nt." ilr. Goyer, appearing on a rivate French-language sta- on, said that reforms with the ccent on rehabililation are al- eady producing results in pris- ners through the pre-releasft -ogram. Rehabilitation is the best rm of public protection, he aid, and prison personnel are eing taught how lo apply re- abilStation in many ways. Asked to comment on recent scapes from federal penal In- Ututions tliis year, Mr. Goyer aid "We have a bad record. Ye have never hidden tliis." He said a report on six pris- ners who escaped Aug. 21 rom the special correctional uiit at Laval, Que., was al- eady complete but the con- ents would not be made pub- He said "precise measures" .ad been taken at federal pris- ns to halt the escapes. He did iOt elaborate. JAMES HOFFA indicated the administration wants to prevent a recurrent of the kind of publicity that fol lowed previous tours of Nortl Vietnam by private U.S. citi ans. And, even while citing the Ir regularities said to have ac companied validation of Hoffa' passport, state departmen spokesman Charles W. Bra; quoted Rogers as saying: 'The secretary of state among other things, does no believe private American cit zens should he involved in ne gotiations with respect lo lease of the prisoners of war." Under current U.S. law an regulations, travel by Amc cans to North Vietnam and handful of other countries ca he undertaken only if approver by authorized state deparlmen officials. The decision to bar Hoffa trip, officials said, had nothin to do with his prison recor lice said all on board the bu. drowned. Eyewitnesses said the I) swerved to avoid an nrm truck travelling in the opposite direction and the army truck did not stop.
