Doria gave the appraisal of Dio in testimony before the Sen ate rackets investigating com mittee. Doria was until last March secretary-treasurer of the Allied Industrial Workers Union, for merly the old AFL United Auto Workers Union (UAW). Doria left the union under pres sure.

Questions as to his fitness to hold union office had been raised in the AFL-CIO, partly because of Doria's associations with Dio. There was testimony last week that Doria agreed to resign on condition that the union pay him $80,000 and give him a Cadillac car. He has been paid $25,000 and contends the union still owes him $55,000. Doria said he is now a resi dent of Encino, and is helping develop mining proper ties in Arizona. Doria told the senators how Dio took over Local 102 of the UAW-AFL sometime after 1952 When the local was chartered for a drive to organize New York City taxi drivers.

It is that local which the rackets committee has produced tes timony to show became a nest of hoodlums which fanned out into a series of teamsters locals, especially chartered to elect a man picked by James R. Hona, mia west boss of the Teamsters Un ion, to control teamsters affairs in the New York City area. The committee contends there was an alliance between Hoffa and Dio aimed at enhancing Hot fa's power on the east coast. Hoffa now appears in line to succeed Dave Beck as international president of the Teamsters. Doria put up a staunch defense of Dio in his testimony, saying the convicted extortionist wanted to become an honest union man and was "imbued with the spirit of the union move ment" but was hounded out of labor because of his criminal record.

Dio, a dapper mobster now awaiting sentencing on a shakedown charge, refused to tell the senators last week whether he and Doria were friends. Dio said the answer to that and many other questions might incrimi nate him.

Farmers Union Head Predicts 'Bone-Dry' Milkshed by Thursday Albany (AP) Two milk-producer groups that plan to withhold milk Wednesday in support of their demand for higher prices promise that picketing will be orderly. One confiden't leader predicts the sprawling New York milk-shed will be "bone dry" by Thursday. Carl K.

Peters of Canton, chairman ofthe Farmers Union board of presidents, said Saturday the strike would be "non violent." 4- William Waldorf of Copake president of the Dairy Farmers of America said his organization was "asking every farmer to restrain himself" and would do "all in our power to maintain order." The-two organizations claim a total membership, of 9,000 among the more than 55,000 dairymen who ship milk into the New York-New Jersey market. Waldorf told a reporter today that there was no contract expiration or other significance to the Wednesday strike date. -He said the Farmers' Union had set It and his organization went along in the Interest of joint action. Meanwhile, in New York City, deadlocked contract negotiations between the Dairy Transport Assn. -and the Teamsters Union raised the threat of a strike of truck drivers hauling milk Into the Metropolitan area.

Federal Mediator Francix X. Mascola said a strike of drivers who haul about 95 per cent of the milk from farms to metropolitan distributions plants is possible next Saturday. The employer group includes .20 firms operating milk tank trucks from New York State, New England and Pennsylvania farms to the city. The union is demanding wage and other Improvements that would total about 75 cents an hour over a three-year period. company has offered improvements worth about 50 cents.

The milkshed encompasses parts of seven states New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Vermont, Maryland, Delaware and Connecticut but the two "splinter" groups are strongest in New York State. The large producer cooperatives in the milkshed oppose a strike. Waldorf's statement on the or- derlines of the strike was contained in a telegram to Gov. Harriman in which the DFA leader protested a report that 700 "special" state police had been "deputized to appear In picket lines." Gov. Harriman's office emphatically denied the report.

Daniel P. Moynihan, the governor's acting secretary, told Waldorf there was no such thing as a deputy state trooper. The report, he said, was "absolutely untrue" and "no such action has been discussed or considered by the state administration." Leaders of the Farmers Union officially approved the strike and made plans nfor at a convention Saturday in U.tica. Following that session, Peters made the prediction that the milkshed would be "bone dry" by Thursday morning. In another development Saturday, the Tri-State Master Dairy Farmers Guild, which led a brief strike last winter, announced that its members would not withhold milk this time.

The 90 volunteers from seven nations who took part in the res cue operation were ordered off the mountain by rescue chief Peter Frei, who said the three other members of the group were undoubtedly dead. Hope of rescuing three men trapped on the north wall of the mountain died as fresh blizzards swirled around the vertical rock face.

The rescue attempt was interrupted by new snows yesterday after a fourth member" of the climbing party was hauled to the summit in a daring Alpine feat. Today the snow had blanketed the upper wall by dawn and showed no signs of abating. "To go down the wall in this much snow would be suicidal folly that would help no one," one guide remarked. The only climber whose position was known to the rescueis is Stefano Longhi, 44, of Lecco, Italy. Longhi was injured in a rock fall several days ago.

In the meantime Persian Gulf head: quarters said only "a small number of non-British pattern grenades and anti-tank mines were captured at Nizwa and Firq yesterday." Newspapers and lawmakers back in Britain already had charged that Saudi Arabia was backing the Oman war with unwitting help. The sultan of Oman said as much last week in an interview. Identification of the arms as American-made could mean diplomatic trouble ahead.

Identification would be a simple matter, since U.S. ordnance teams are stationed within the British War Office. The Oman ground war slowed to a crawl today after Nizwa'9 surrender without resistance. Troops pursued fleeing rebel remnants north of the so-called capital of the revolt but lost con-tact six miles to the northwest. Field dispatches reported 12 to 15 rebels killed near Firq.

In Cairo the Arab League decided to ask the United Nations Security Council to take un immediately the question of the "Oman War." The political committee of the league met in emergency session and condemned British action in the Arabian battle area as "fla grant aggression against Oman's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity." Reports from the front said the rebel leaders fled their capital and were racing toward rebel Akhdar Green Mountain and Tanuf, headquarters of the dissident Sheikh Suleiman Bin Himyar. They were reported at Birkat Al Mauz, a village 10 miles to the west. There was no trace at Nizwa of the rebel leader, the Imam of Oman, Galib Bin Ali. His brother, Talib, believed to be the Imam's military leader, also was missing. Front dispatches said the bat- tie for Firq was not yet over because some rebels were still fighting from caves and would have to be dug out one at a time.

The rebels were reported also to be holding a roadblock in the area.
