FBI sources said agents would
talk to Sullivan about Proven-
aano, but Sullivan said he had
not been contacted.
SULLIVAN told the Associated
Press earlier that Hoffa said
Provenzano had threatened to
kill Hoffa or kidnap his grand-
children if he refused to give up
efforts to regain the union pres-
idency.
The FBI spoke to Proven-
zano, a former Teamsters vice
president, briefly on Monday.
"When the FBI.got through to
him, he told them, 'I'll give you
guys five minutes, then I'm go-
ing to Florida'," a source said.
Sullivan, a onetime business
agent for Teamster locals in
New York City, said Hoffa told
him about Provenzano's threats
in May 1974.
SULLIVAN said Hoffa told
him, "Tony Pro threatened to

me to get out soon."
AN ENTRY dated "Sunday,
8-1-74" read: "Still afraid for
some reason - heart about to
jump out." An Aug. 9 entry
said, "Gail came today. Going
home soon. Thank God for His
goodness."
Another entry read, "God will
bring us back together."
Also read to the court was a
notation that said, "David vis-
ited for about 20 minutes. Crazy
fun. Loving guy he is."
IN WASHINGTON, a team of
lawyers headed by former U.S.
Attorney General Ramsey Clark
told Chief Justice Burger there
should have been a hearing be-
f o mes wasremoe norma-

nently. They said Dees' removal
deprived Little of her "right
not to be deprived of her life
without due process of law," her
right to assistance of counsel of
her choice and her right to con-
front witnesses.
Burger gave no reason for the
refusal.
Dees, 38, was charged by Dis-
trict Attorney Burley Mitchell
with attempting to get a witness
to commit perjury. Maximum
penalty would be 10 years im-
prisonment and an unlimited
fine. A hearing was set for Sept.
15.
The defense said Monday it
would watch Hobgood for evi-
dence of prejudice against Little
with an eye toward a civil suit.
The attorneys said some of Hob-
good's decisions have indicated
"actual malice" and have de-
prived her of some of her civil
rights.
Observing the trial as a
"judge watcher" yesterday was
Philip Hirschkop of Alexandria,
Va., a member of the American
Civil Liberties Union board of
directors.

nessed the attack on El Buss.
"WE COULD NOT see them
because it was extremely dark.
They landed about 50 meters
from the tents of the comman-
dos. Suddenly, the place be-
came as bright as midday,
when the Jews hurled phos-
phorus bombs and showered
the tents with bullets and
shells," he said.
Heija said when the Israeli
comm"dos began their retreat
they fired rockets and mortor,
some of which hit an adjacent
Lebanese army barracks, kill-
ing four officers and wounding
another.
The raid lasted 45 minutes,
another refugee said, and the
Palestinians hurried to bury
their dead and move the
wounded to hospitals.
"OUR WOMEN received the
martyrs with shouts of joy,"
said one guerrilla who declin-
ed to be identified. "It is a
boundless honor for any Pales-
tinian family to count one of
its members among the mar-
tyrs."
"The Israelis attacked us to-
day to avenge their phantom
warplane which we shot down
in July. But they were cow-
ardly. They came under cover.
However, I'm sure we killed
or wounded quite a good num-
ber of them. Usually, the Is-
raelis never leave their dead
behind. They take them away,"
he added.
El Buss alone suffered six
killed and 18 wounded, accord-
ing the local residents.
Hardly had the El Buss re-
fugees buried their dead than
a formation of Israeli jets
swooped low over Borgholieh
and Borj Rahhal. Witnesses
said 12 people were killed and
26 others wounded in the air

Ahmed Poussef, a 34-yyear-
old school teacher, squatted by
his destroyed house, resting his
chin on his fist. He nodded sad-
ly and said, "We are from Al-
lah and unto him we return."
"Now I'm homeless," he con-
tinued. "I lost my brother. I
have no one to live for. I shall
join the commando movement.
Tell the Israelis to remember
my name because I will not rest
until I give them hell,"
Mental health
code altered
by Senate

ment because doctors are re-
luctant to certify them as ment-
ally ill.
"They just say, 'That causes
havoc with my professional
schedule'," Otterbacher said.
UNDER THE Otterbacher bill,
a doctor's certificate that an
individual should be committed
involuntarily could be admitted
into evidence at the preliminary
hearing.
Under the mental health code,
a person can be admitted
against his will if one doctor
and one qualified mental health
professional such as a psychia-
trist certify he is mentally ill
and needs treatment.
A bill sparing psychiatrists
from making two court appear-
ances has been approved by the
Senate and is now before the
House.
ALSO APPROVED was a bill
allowing municipalities to give
police and firemen credit for up
to six years in the military serv-
ice for retirement purposes.
