Will ABC broadcast Search of phone records
l:._...L fails to reveal Hoffa's call

NIxJ1-rrJsL snUws:

whose news division rejected an
offer to buy television rights to
former President Nixon's mem-
oirs, said yesterday it can't
confirm or a deny a report it
now is negotiating with British
TV personality David Frost for
Nixon interviews he's bought.
Frost told a Sunday pews con-
ference in Los Angeles he'd
bought the "television mem-
oirs" of Nixon and would soon
film four 90-minute interviews
with him on a variety of topics,
including Watergate.
AN ABC-TV spokesman, ask-
ed about a Christian Science
Monitor report that quotes in-
dustry sources as saying ABC
News is negotiating with Frost
for U.S. rights to his programs,
couldn't confirm or deny it.
He said the only person in
the American Broadcasting
Company who could respond
was William Sheehan, head of

ABC News and Sheehan was on
Vacation and couldn't be reach-
ed immediately yesterday.
However, an ABC News
spokesperson who later talked
with Sheehan, in Connecticut
taking a pilot's examination,
said Sheehan, "flatly denied
we have a deal" with Frost.
BUT THE spokesperson said
he didn't know - nor did Shee-
han say - if negotiations were
under way with Frost.
Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, an
official of Frost's production
firm said there was no truth
to reports the 36-year-old enter-
tainer was negotiating with ABC
for U.S. rights to his Nixon pro-
Marvin Minoff, executive vice
president of Frost's Paradine
Productions, said Frost told
newsmen yesterday he wasn't
involved in negotiations with
any network an dthat hadn't

"I DON'T see how it could
have," Minoff said in a phone
interview, adding that Frost
was bound for Europe early
yesterday for a vacation.
"He's not going to New York
for any meetings with ABC, I
can tell you that," he said.
Minoff said none of the three
networks have talked to Frost
about U.S. rights to his Nixon
programs, but if they do, "my
guess is that would be when
he returns here next week when
we start an entertainment film
for television.
talked to him this morning he
didn't mention anything about
receiving any phone calls from
a network."
ABC News and CBS News ear-
lier rejected proposals from
Nixon's literary agent, Irv-
ing Lazar, to buy TV rights to
Nixon's memoirs and interview
him for several news specials.

Earlier, a source close to the
case said that a search of long-
distance telephone records fail-
ed to turn up any record of the
call the former Teamsters pres-
ident made to his wife the day
he disappeared.
Hoffa's family has said that
he called his wife July 30 to say
that he had been stood up by
Detroit Mafia kingpin Anthony
Giacalone. That was the last
time Hoffa was heard from, his
family has said.
CALLS F R O M Bloomfield
Township-where the call was
said to have originated from--
to Hoffa's home in Lake Orion
are toll calls. But sources close
to the case told The Associated
Press that agents had been un-
able to find any record of the
"Either the call was made
from somewhere else or it
wasn't made," said the source.
"We're not drawing any con-
clusions from it"
Hoffa's wife has said her hus-
band phoned from the Machus
Red Fox restaurant in Bloom-
field Township to say Giacalone
didn't show up for a meeting
there with Hoffa.
AN FBI spokesman refused to
comment on the report and
stood by its earlier statement
that there were no promising
leads or prime suspects in the
Sources have said that if
Hoffa was kidnaped, it possibly
occurred somewhere other than
the Bloomfield Township area
where his car was recovered.
Sources also have said the FBI
has not dismissed the possibility
that Hoffa disappeared volun-
Jay Bailey, FBI agent in
charge of the Hoffa case, said
earlier yesterday, '"We have in-
terviewed thousands of individ-
uals and we have no informa-
tion that he's dead or alive."
"WITH THE passage of time,
the apprehensions will grow,"
he conceded. Hoffa has been
missing since July 30.
Bailey told reporters that no
trace of Hoffa has been found
since he was seen in front of a
suburban restaurant 12 days
He said 2,100 interviews were
conducted by FBI agents in the
vicinity of the restaurant park-
ing lot where Hoffa was last
seen, but that no witnesses were

U.S. ATTY. Ralph Guy said
U.S. grand jury could issue sub-
poenas for witnesses as early
as tomorrow, but he cautioned,
"There's nothing magic about
a grand jury. . . . A grand
jury is only as good as the leg-
work that preceeds it."
The legwork so far has netted
next to nothing, said Bailey. He
said the bureau has received no
ransom demands, and would not
speculate as to what motive
someone might have for kidnap-
ing or killing Hoffa.
He said the FBI is "sending
teletype messages across the
country every few minutes"
with fresh tips on the case. So
far, he said, they have led the
FBI nowhere, but many possi-
bilities were eliminated.
THE FBI said it still is exam-
ining the car Hoffa was driving
when he left home July 30, and
another car driven that day by
Hoffa's foster son which the
FBI seized over the weekend.
