Hoffa reported

(Conatned from Page 3)
Detective Robert Bloom said
there was no sign of struggle.
Bloom said Hoffa's "car was
there and he wasn't."
SINCE HIS release from fed-
eral prison, Hoffa has sought to
regain his lofty union position,
but he is barred from union ac-
tivities by a provision in the
clemency decree granted by

responsible for the explosion,

International President Frank
Fitzsimmons, Hoifa's handpick-
ed successor who is now his bit-
ter rival.
Nixon's clemency proclama-
tion freed Hoffa after the ex-
union leader had served only
four-and-one-half years of his
sentence. But Nixon banned
Hoffa from union activities un-
til 1980 in what Hoffa claimed
was a political deal with Frank
Fitzsimmons. Fitzsimmons, up
for re-election in 1976, says he
had nothing to do with the
clemency decree.
LEONARD Boudin, Hoffa's at-
torney in his court fight to re-
gain power in the Teamsters,

said he had no knowledge of
Hoffa's disappearance.
"It's an absolutely dreadful
thing, I hope he has not been
kidnaped, I hope he has not
been injured," Boudin said in
New York.
The lawyer would not specu-
late on why Hofa might be
missing, but he added, "The
controversy inside the Team-
sters speaks for itself, but I'm
not ready to make any charges."
POLICE said Hoffa's car was
found in a shopping center park-
ing lot adjacent to the Machus
Red Fox Restaurant. Restaurant
manager John Miller said Hoffa
did not visit the establishment
anytime Wednesday.
Hal DeLong, a longtime Hoffa
friend, said: "It's not uncom-
mon for union officials to meet
someone, park, leave their car
and be gone for several days."
DeLong, a spokesman for
Teamsters Local 299 where
Hoffa began his meteoric rise to
unon power, said Hoffa "can't
have any part of union activi-
ties, but let's face it, he's close
friends with many people."

grams, Mike Slezark, former
coordinator of Ozone House,
feels there has been a change
in HEW's attitudes towards op-

"Ozone House represents a
counter culture alternative so-
cial services group" said Slez-
ack. "At first, in the late 60's
and early 70's, HEW was down
on pars-professional groups."
However( Slezack said people
now realize that alternative so-

effective than professional
ones because of their non-au-
