WASHINGTON (P)-- A former.
officer of the Michigan Federation
of Labor testified yesterday the
'[eamsters Union used threats, rig-
ged elections and links with the
underworld to build up power in
his state.
Robert Scott also told the Sen-
ate Rackets Committee that James
R. Hoffa, Midwest boss of the
Teamsters, threatened "to break
both my arms and legs" when
Scott threatened to resign from
the federation in protest against
the way Hoffa and others were
changing the constitution. Scott
said he resigned anyway.
He was placed under protection
of the committee after reporting
that he received two threatening
telephone calls last week warning
him not to testify in Washington.
Yesterday's hearing ended with
an outburst from William Buffa-
lino, president of Teamsters Local
985 in Detroit, that the committee
was using "Gestapo. tactics" and
"trying to get information at gun
Robert F. Kennedy, committee
counsel, acknowledged that one of
his investigators had drawn a pis-
tol on Harry Newman, the busi-
ness agen~t of Buffalino's local.
Kennedy said the incident occur-
red after Newman, whom he de-
scribed as a husky Negro, started
pushing the investigator around.
Hoffa was not present to hear
the latest testimony against his
regime in Michigan. He was busy
in Miami Beach, Fli., campaigning
for the presidency of the 1Y2-mil-
lion-member union.

Course '-Prtoposed
A new' undergraduate course in Asian Civilizations, now being
planned by an interdepartmental committee, will be available next
According -to Prof. Robert Crane of the history department, a
member of the planning committee, the new course will become a
Freshmen-Sophomore option in both Humanities and Social Science.
It will thus enable instructor in present 100-level courses in Near
Eastern Studies, Far Eastern Studies, and South Asian history to
assume students have an Asian history, culture, politics and philo-

sophy. This would eliminate much<

The Asian Civilization course
would employ at least six differ-
ent lecturers for each section, rep-
resenting the combined efforts of
the Anthropology, Far East Lan-
guages and Literatures, Fine Arts,
Geography, History ,and Political
