Jury may question Hoffa

(Continued from Page 1)
S E V E R A L investigators
said they still are most intrigu-
ed by the theory, as yet unsub-
stantiated, that Hoffa was ab-
ducted or killed to prevent his
attempting to recapture the top
post of the 2.2 million member
Teamsters union, the nation's
largest.
Nine days after Hoffa drop-
ped from sight, Hoffa's son,
James P. Hoffa, said he clings
to hope his father will be found
alive. He said several persons
have been questioned by the
FBI, but conceded there have
been "no major developments"
since his father vanished.
Interviewed alone in the
parking garage near his down-
town law office, Hoffa's son re-
vealed the strains of his pri-
vate ordeal.
"DO YOU have any reason
t believe that your father is
still alive?" he was asked.
Firmly, quickly, he replied,
"Im not giving up." Then
tears welled in his eyes and
his composure cracked. He
wept openly for perhaps a min-
ute - his fists clenched in an-
ger and frustration.

"If this happened to your
father," he said. starting slow-
ly, "he would want you to do
everything you could to find
him. Just as my father does."
HE THEN went to his car
and began the 41-mile drive to
his father's home in Lake Orion
to rejoin his mother and sister
in their vigil.
It was an uncharacteristic
display of emotion for the
younger Hoffa, who has patient-
ly, almost matter-of-factly, ans-
wered reporters, insistent quer-
ies since last Thursday - the
day after Hoffa dropped from
sight.
The son said late Thursday
night he suspects elements
within the Teamsters union
maye be responsible for his
father's disappearance.
"ALTHOUGH I'm not accus-
ing people, I think that there
are maybe elements within the
union that might have done
something like this," he said.
"The only motive that could be
great enough to cause this kind
of heartache and this kind of
problem would have to grow
out of something as big as
maybe the international union."

witnesses
He again pointed a finger at
his older foster brother, Charles
"Chuckie" O'Brien, 41, a
Teamsters organizer who re-
portedly split with Hoffa sever-
al months ago and sided with
Hoffa's arch-rival, Teamsters
general President Frank Fitz-
simmons.
Fitzsimmons has been un-
available for comment. But
Hoffa said Fitzsimmons had
called the family to express
personal sympathy.
H O F F A' S son said he
still thinks O'Brien is covering
up facts in the case and said
O'Brien has given "conflicting
stories" about his own where-
abouts last Wednesday when
Hoffa was last seen.
"His activities are suspicious
and unexplained, and he was in
the area of the Red Fox rest-
aurant at the time my dad
was abducted, and I'll leave it
to the authorities to hook that
up, said Hoffa. His father's
car was found abandoned in
the Red Fox parking lot.
O'Brien and his attorney re-
fuse comment on the Hoffa in-
vestigation.
