rash withdrawal in January 1962 for trip to a Democratic Party unction at Washington DC to see ifhe couldnt avoid pen alties of 500000 in connection with the illegal allotments record shows that Estes spent about StOW of this for tickets to a dinner and toned most of the tickets over to his friend CM Carter in tbe office of the then vice president Lyndon Bainies Johnson We have never teamed what
