Teamsters re-vote
in officer elections

DETROIT (UPI) - Officials began
tabulating ballots yesterday in an elec-
tion that will tell the Teamster dissident
movement whether it can buck the
system in the showcase local of the
nation's largest labor union.,
Members of Teamsters Local 299 -
home local of missing ex-union boss
Jimmy Hoffa and current International
President Frank Fitzsimmons - are
voting for seven officers, including
president and vice president..
ABOUT 58 per cent of the nearly
13,000-mail ballots sent out May 5 were
returned by yesterday's deadline.

Results - tabulated by a Detroit ac-
counting firm - were expected within
48 hours.
The voting, being supervised by U.S.
Labor Department observers, is a
court-ordered rerun of a 1977 election
challenged by dissidents on grounds-of
federal labor law violations by the in-
cumbents' campaign.
In that earlier election, local
president Robert Lins, 55, a local of-
ficial since 1968 and an associate of both
Hoffa and Fitzsimmons, was re-elected
by a slim 244 votes over reformer Peter

Texas or bust
Some people will do almost anything to get to Texas, it seems. Consider
the case of an unidentified man who walked into Carson Bridge's pawnshop
in West Plains, Mo. last week and hocked tools, jewelry and a gun to buy
enough gas to get to the Lone Star state, but it wasn't enough. Without
batting an eye, the man opened his mouth and pointed to two gold crowns.
*What are they worth, he asked. "I told him they'd probably bring about $30,
but I wasn't going to pull his teeth, for heaven's sake," Bridge said Tuesday.
The man left and returned a short time later, a new pair of pliers and a small
box in his hand. The man had pulled the crowns after buying new pliers
because "he didn't want to put the dirty pliers in his mouth. He said it didn't
hurt, just felt kind of funny," Bridge said. "If I had known he was that
desperate, I'd have directed him somewhere to get help."
Grads: Casinos want you
The government has an offbeat tip for graduates looking for permanent
jobs: Try your luck working in a gambling casino. Gambling hall attendants
top a new Labor Department list of hard-to-fill occupations open to young
job-seekers. The category includes such jobs as dealers, card players and
gambling room monitors, and the pay can be quite good in some cases. A
card room manager, for example, can earn $14.35 to $16.42 per hour. Job-
seekers with college or other post-high school training might also do well to
search for openings as accountants, nurses, administrative assistants and
electronic technicians, according to the department.
On the outside
The wizards at the Weather Bureau forecast partly cloudy skies today
with a chance of thundershowers throughout the day. The high temperature
should reach into the low to mid 80s. 17
