DETROIT - The FBI is in-
vestigating reports that Team-
sters President Frank Fitzsim-
mons met with two reputed
Mafia figures at a Detroit res-
taurant less than a week before
J a m e s Hoffa disappeared,
sources close to the Hoffa probe
said yesterday.
Fitzsimmons, through his at-
torney Robert Baptiste of Wash-
ington, D.C., denied that such
a meeting took place.
Meanwhile a car the FBI had
said may have been used to fa-
cilitate an abduction of missing
ex-Teamsters president Hoffa
was ordered returned today to

Anthony "Tony Jack" Giaca-
lone.
U. S. District Court Judge
Robert DeMascio said the FBI
failed to show probable cause
that a crime was committed,
involving the 1975 Mercury.
The FBI had said in a sworn
affidavit that the car was usedj
by Hoffa's foster son, Charles
"Chuckie" O'Brien, to "facili-
tate an abduction of Hoffa."
SEVERAL weeks ago, the
FBI interviewed Mike Larco,
a co-owner of Larco's Inn on
Detroit's Northwest Side, about
reports of a meeting between
Fitzsimmons and reputed Ma-
fia figures Raffaele "Jimmy
Q" Quasarano and Peter Vitale,
the sources said.
The meeting reportedly oc-
curred four or five days before
Hoffa - Fitzsimmons' archrival
and predecessor as Teamsters
chief-- dropped from sight July
30. Larco said the restaurant
owners told the FBI there had
been no such meeting.
"It's just not true," said
Larco, who explained he would
have recognized the three men.
A MICHIGAN law enforce-
ment official said Fitzsimmons
has known Quasarano and Vi-

tale for a number of years and
that informants have seen the
three in Larco's together at
lease once in the past.
But the official said there
was no confirmation that a
meeting between the two reput-
ed mobsters and Fitzsimmons
occurred on July 25 or 26.
John King, a valet in the
parking lot at Larco's, said
Quasarano and Vitale frequent

the restaurant but have not
been there for "at least three
months." King said he has not
seen Fitzsimmons at Larco's
for several years.
QUASARANO and Vitale were
both described in Senate testi-
mony as Detroit Mafia figures.
Fitzsimmons' son, Richard,
who is a vice president of
Teamsters Local 299 in Detroit,
was scheduled to appear before
the federal grand jury probing
Hoffa's disappearance.
Nine more witnesses appear-
ed before a federal grand jury
on the third day of its investi-
gation of the disappearance of
Hoffa. Federal sources said two
of them did not cooperate.
The sources said Joseph Bane
Sr., an official of Teamsters
Local 614, and Bane's son
refused to answer any questions
when they appeared.
.B A N E and his son, also an
official of Local 614, each spent
about three minutes before the
grand jury.
Another federal grand jury is
investigating the local's finan-
cial affairs but federal sources
did not say if this was a reason
for the refusal to cooperate.
The two were called because

they know Hoffa - who headed
the International Teamsters
union for 13 years - and be-
cause Local 614 is in Pontiac,
not far from Hoffa's suburban!
home and only a few milesr
from where he vanished July
30.
LEONARD Schultz, a Detroit
labor consultant, spent over two
hours before the grand jury. HeI
was once identified as one of
three men Hoffa planned to
meet the day he disappeared.
Schultz did not say what he
told the grand jury. He said he
"did everything" he could to
cooperate - in contrast to an
earlier threat to refuse to ans-
wer any questions.
The grand jury is seeking in-
formation - but not indictments
-to determine how and why

Hoffa disappeared.
THE 62-year-old union leadei
was last seen standing outside
a suburban Detroit restauran
where, he told his family, h
had an appointment with Giaca
lone.
Giacalone has not appeare
before the grand jury, but hi,
son and a brother were the firs
two major witnesses Tuesday.
A self-described foster son o
loffa, O'Brien admitted h
was in the area at the time
Hoffa vanished but said tha
was a coincidence. O'Brien ap
peared before the grand jura
Wednesday. According to hi
lawyer, he refused to answel
some questions because he fel
the panel was investigating
Teamsters affairs rather that
Hoffa's disappearance.

RFK's son opposes
probing dad's death
NEW YORK (UPI) - Robert F. Kennedy Jr., says he op-
poses reopening the investigation into the assassination of his
father.
The 21-year-old son of the late New Yorkasenator, appearing
yesterday at a news conference to promote a television special,
was asked his opinion of the theory that a second gun was used
in the slaying.
'I DON'T think there's anything to it," he said. "I think all
it takes is one crazy guy."
As to whether the probe into the Robert Kennedy assassina.
tion should be reopened, his son said, "They should let it go;
just leave it."
Kennedyy is a narrator-interviewer in a special "The Last
Frontier," filmed in Kenya.
