they are digging deeper into the
handling of union funds by Team-
ster locals in areas which, they
said, have been under James R.
Hoff a's dominatiuon.
All Teamster locals in the Cen-

stocks and bonds, all of their loans
since January, 1950, and any ad-

which "this type of activity has
gone on in areas which have been
under the control and domination
of Mr. Hoffa."

'Bright as Jupiter'
One Bedford sighting reported

planet Jupiter, or almost 100 times
brighter than the first sightings in
various .parts of the world.
Dr. Hynek said this particular
brightness may have been caused
by the nose cone beginning to tear
