In Defense Of Himself.
Washington -- W. A. "Tony" Boyle, president of the United Mine Workers union, gestures to emphasize a point during a press conference March 9th at the National Press Club. Boyle issued a 14-page statement defending himself and the United Mine Workers, denying any connection or involvement in the murder of Joseph Yablonski, whom Boyle defeated in an election last Dec. 9th. Boyle challenged the Labor Dept's claim that widespread irregularities marred the balloting. (1970)
