years ard has made abortive
atte--nts for Senate and Con-
gressional seats.
More conservative than Bak-
er, Huber has said that if he
,does not receive the GOP nom-
?Pation-a very likely possibil-
ity-he will run as third party
candidate this November.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Mel-
vin Jay Schwartz, an attorney
who specializes in estate plan-}
ning, says:
"The great middle-class re-I
tired section of our population
is ignored, uninformed and eas-
ily harmed financially by ev-
eryhody from con artists to
their children."
Schwartzrsays he has coun-1
seled more than 4,000 retired
persons and "not more than 20
of them had proper advice in
planning their retirement."
The greatest mistake, he be-
lieves, is not spending some
money for sound advice. "But
people will take the word of a
supermarket clear, a bank tell-
er, a friend's counsin - almost
anyone whose information is,
free."

for Hoffa in N.J
DETROIT (UPI) - A federal source says "logistical prob-
lems" may force the FBI to abandon its search in a New Jersey#
dump for the body of missing former Teamsters President James
Hoff a.
A U.S. magistrate in Newark has given the FBI three ex-
tensions on a search warrant to dig in Moscato's Dump in Jersey!
City, but a federal source in Detroit said yesterday it is not likely
the warrant will ever be executed.

HUBET DECLARED that he
will simultaneously seek the Re-
nliblican, Conservative, a n d
Americah Independent Party
nominations which violates a
state law prohibiting a person
from running for more than one
party's nomination.
However, he said he believes
the law does not apply to fed-
eral offices such as Senate
seats.
Described as a "militant"
conservative, Huber won elec-
tion to the House in 1972 by
waging a tough, anti-busing
campaign in the 18th district
that is exclusively Detroit su-
burbs.
He was ousted two years later
by John Blanchard who won
hndily with a 26,000 vote mar-
gin.
HUBER SERVED in the state
Senate from 1965 to 1970 and
prior to that he was mayor of
Troy for five years.
In 1970, the wealthy indus-
trialist gave up his state post
to rim for the Senate but was
beaten in the primary by Le-
Pore Rom-ney, wife of former
Governor George Romney.

MEANWHILE, a spokesman for the FBI is Newark said pub-
lished reports that the FBI has decided that Hoffa's body is not
buried in the dump are "totally untrue." The spokesman said no
digging was underway, but added that "no final decision has
been made yet."
The Detroit News reported in its Tuesday editions that the
FBI has given up on the New Jersey dump and had no plans
to seek an extension of the search warrant, which expires Sun-
day.
Federal authorities in Detroit refused to comment.
THE FBI was originally told about the dump by a secret
informant who also claimed to know the identities of Hoffa's
killers. Three New Jersey men he named were brought to tes-
tify before a grand jury, but all three took the Fifth Amendment
and refused to testify.
The three New Jersev suspects are Salvatore Brigtiglio, an
official of Teamsters Local 560, his brother Gabriel, and Thomas
A. Andretta.
