Search for Hoffa continues

Jury deadlocked
in Gurney case

(Continued from Page 1)
Nixon let Hoffa out of jail
with the stipulation that he
could not take union leadership
until 1980. Hoffa has contended
the rider was unconstitutional
and reports circulated in Detroit
that President Ford himself has
told Hoffa emissaries, "If we
did something that was unfair,
we will have to make it fair."
IF HOFFA IS alive - which
many doubt --- and if he could
gain relief fromheither the
federal courts, wherre h i s
commutation is under appeal,
or from the White House, it

would set the stage for a titanic
battle for union power in next
year's Teamsters election.
The FBI, which dedicated
itself under the leadership of
then Attorney General Robert
Kennedy to putting Hoffa in
prison for mail fraud and jury
tampering, was reported to
have put hundreds of agents
yesterday on the job of finding
The Detroit Free Press
reported in this morning's edi-
tion that agents had become so
close to the case they moved a
cot and a mattress into Hoffa's
Lake Orion cottage home about

30 miles from Detroit.
THEY ALSO brought in,their
own telephone lines and a tele-
vision monitor and antenna.
Helicopters were reported to
have been brought into play.
An FBI spokesman told the
Chicago Tribune, "With a man
of this importance and a case
of this size, I can assure you
the FBI is going to have more
than adequate staff assigned.
"This thing is going to spread
through the nation."
For the record, the FBI said
it had jumped feet first into the
case because of "extortionate
demands" which would put the
search under federal jurisdic-
HOWEVER, the Hoffa family
said it did not know of any
such and its was speculated the
FBI was using the many crank
calls and letters which have
been received as its excuse to
enter the case.
FBI spokesman_ R o b e r t
Knapp, citing "a very delicate
stage of the investigation," re-
fused to speculate on the my-
riad theories buzzing about De-
troit over the reason for Hof-
fa's disappearance - theories
ranging from fight wifh Fitz-
simmons to his inside knowl-
edge of questionable loans doled
out by the $1.34 billion Team-
sters pension fund.

In Paris, the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization i s s u e d
a statement in which it "cate-
gorically denied" any link with
the assault here.
Two Malaysian women who
are employes of the U.S. Em-
bassy were allowed by the ter-
rorists to telephone their hus-
bands. They said they were all
right but hungry.
U. S. officials said there were
four and six Red Army mem-
bers and more than 15 hostages,
including 42-year-old Stebbins, a
New Mexico native, and the
Swedish diplomat, 48-year-old
Fredrik Bergenstraable, and
his 29-year-old secretary, Ulla
Odqvist- But spokesmen for
about 150 heavily armed Kuala
Lumpur police ringing the
building said there might be
as many as 5 hostages."
Stebbins said in a brief tele-
phone conversation with U. S.
Embassy officials that he was
not being harmed by the ter-
rorists and that he and the
other hostages, including Aus-
tralians, Malaysians, a- Japa-
nese and a Singaporean, were
"sitting around just waiting."
The structure, called the Amer-
ican International Assurance
Building, houses several foreign

conferred twice with the Red
Army members by telephone
from the sixth floor of the build-
ing, a modern structure with a
honey-comb-like facade, a n d
police sent food up to both the
terrorists and the hostages.

THE terrorists said in a
three-page, typewritten docu-
ment titled "Declaration and
Communique" dropped from
the ninth-floorwindow that in
addition to freedom for their
comrades, they wanted a heli-
cooter to take them to the roof
of the building, and a Japan
Air Lines plane to fly them to
an unnamed destination.
In Tokyo, a spokesman for
Prime Minister Takeo Miki,
who is now in the United States
preparing for talks with Presi-
dent Ford, said "the Prime
minister has agreed that the
Japanese government, from
the basic position of placing
top priority on respect for hu-
man life, willaccommodate the
demands of the terrorists."
He said five of the Red Ar-
my members agreed to fly to
Kuala Lumpur, but that the
other two, including one who
was freed last year because of
illness, refused to go on the
grounds they no longer belong-
ed to the Red Army.

they had a duty to reach a

do so without violence to your
individual judgment."

"If much the greater number
of you are for a conviction," the
judge added, "you should ask
whether the doubt in your own
mind is a reasonable one since
it makes no effective impres-
sion on the minds of so many
equally honest and equally con-
scientious jurors.
"On the other hand, if the ma-
jority or even a lesser number
of you are for acquittal, other
jurors are to seriously ask them-
selves again whether they do

KRENTZMAN told the jurors
to remember always that "the

twice the gauntlet of a criminal
prosecution and to endure a
second time the emotional and
financial strain of a criminal
