For Hoffa
NEW:YORK (P)-Teamsters boss
James R. Hoffa was described
yesterday as so hounded by Senate
-investigators that he cannot hope
for a fair trial in the nation's
Seeking an indefinite postpone-
ment of Hoffa's trial on wiretap-
ping and perjury charges, his law-
yer, Sal Gelb, argued:
"The case is so saturated with
the most adverse possible publicity
today that the most important'
events are the -space satellite and
Hoff a."
U.S. District Judge William B.
Herlands postponed a decision for
10 days. He said he will set trial
dates at a hearing Oct. 25. Hoffa
tentatively was to have gone on
trial yesterday on the charge of
wiretapping his own union head-
quarters in Detroit.
Gelb accused Sen. John Mc-
Clellan (D-Ark.) and his Senate
Rackets Investigating Committee
of trying to picture H-ffa "as an
associate of gangsters and a very
evil man who should be driven
from the American scene." ;
Gelb continued:
"It would be a mockery if Hoffa
could be brought to trial in the
:near future and obtain a fair trial
by jury. We have one arm of gov-
ernment lending itself to destroy-
ing this defendant."

In Aom Plot"
NEW YORK (A'- - A renegade
Moscow agent testified yesterday
he once was directed to hire im-
prisoned atom spy Morton Sobell's
wife for Russian espionage work
in this country. -
Sobell is serving 30 years in
prison as an accomplice of atom
spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg,.,
who were executed in 1953.
The testimony came from Reino
Hayhanen, who renounced his spy
background to turn government
witness at the espionage trial of.
Russian Co. Rudolf I. Abel.
Hayahen said he and Abel had
$5,000 as bait to obtain the serv-
ices of Mrs. Helen Sobell. They
buried the money in Bear Moun-
tain Park, a state resort on the
Hudson River above New York
The witness said he never con-
tacted Mrs. Sobell nor gave her
the money. But he added that he
reported to Moscow that he had
done both.
Mrs. Sobell, out of court, denied
ever having anything to do with
espionage. She said:
"This is, I believe, just a way
of dragging my name into the
newspapers in connection with es-
pionage at a time my husband's
case is before the Supreme Court.
"I 'have never been involved in
any kind of espionage nor has my
husband, or in a conspiracy to
commit espionage.
"I think this is an attempt by
government prosecutors to smear'
me and my husband."

"It's a good thing," Mikoyan
told newsmen at an Afghanistan
Embassy reception in Moscow.
Arabs Confused
Same confusion was evident in
the Arab sphere.
While Syria's acting Foreign
Minister Khalil Kallas was telling
70 foreign diplomats in Damascus"
that Turkey intends to "launch a
premeditated action against Sy-
ria," an E g y p t i an Embassy
spokesman in Ankara, Turkey,
said "Israel is the only country
which might attack Syria."
A Damascus newspaper re-
ported' Saudi Arabia is sending
troops to Syria to join the Egyp-
tian contingent.
Saud Denies Report
Visiting in Beirut, Saudi Ara-
bia's Kijtg Saud denied it.
Broad aspects of the crisis in
cluded these developments:
In Paris, a French Foreign Min-
istry spokesman said the Egyptian
move is regarded as strengthening
Nasser's leadership of the Arab
world, but "does not modify the
military and strategic situation in
that area."
Norwegians React
The Norwegian Socialist party
also announced it had rejected
Khrushchev's 1 e t t e r on the
grounds that it did not want to
conduct a foreign policy indepen-
dently of the government.

Bush Urges
United Plan
For Military
NEW YORK ()-Dr. Vannevar
Bush, head of the government's
huge research program in World
War, II, said yesterday the only,
way to "catch up with the Rus-
sians" in missiles is to "unify our
military planning."
"Without it all else is futile, and
without it you cannot have unified
research," Bush said. Asked how
unified planning could be achieved,
he said "the only fellow who can
do that is the President of the
United States."
He now is chairman of the Cor-
poration of Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology and has no
official government position.
Bush said his reaction to the
Russian earth satellite was: "If
it wakes us up, I'm damn glad the
Russians shot their satellite.
Bush also said "the fact that
Russia has shot a satellite doesn't
mean that we have the intercon-
tinental missile on our doorstep.
We're a heck of a long way from
that.. .
"There are three main p'rob-
lems: Getting the missile up, get-
ting it back into the atmosphere,
and making it hit the target. If
the Russians.can guide their mis-
sile to the target and have solved
the problem of re-elitry into the
atmosphere, they have done quite
a lot, but I don't believe it."
Asked if he was pessimistic
"about our chances of catching up
to the Russians," Bush said, "no
I'm not pessimistic. We have gone
through two world wars and sur-

Mrs. Griihs Cites
Effects of 'Sputnik'
Congresswoman Martha W. Griffiths, (D-Mich.) predicted that
the recent launching of the earth satellite by the Soviet Union will
have a far-reaching and positive effect on the legislation proposed
and enacted by congress next January.
Mrs. Griffiths, who is a graduate of the University law school,
expressed this belief in a speech to the Young Democrats Club held
last night in the Union.
Cites Missile Repercussions
The:congresswoman, who is a member of both the Banking and
Currency and Government Operations Committees in the present
Congress named a number of what ,
she thought would be the reper- ,
cussions in the upcoming session.
"First," she said, "there will un-
doubtedly be an investigation into .
why the defense department did
not put sufficient emphasis on the
missile program even though more
than enough money was available
for this purpose."
The second-term member of
congress continued by suggesting
that our failure to beat the Rus-
sians on the satellite launching
and the perfection of the ICBM }
missile, which is necessary for this
launching, is probably due in part
to.the rivalries between the differ-
ent armed forces, all of whom are
working on separate guided missile,

Mitchell said such a fight would
result in the "eventual destruption

she said, "by following the same
practice as in the Manhattan Pro-
Aject which produced the atom
bomb, whereby allof the scien-
tists and scientific know-how were,
pooled under one department."
Mrs. Griffiths, who represezits
the 17th Congressional District,
went on to say that "our failure' to
bring very, many foreign scientists
into the United States after World
War II aswell as. our present lag
behind the USSR in the turning
