NEELEMAN United Press International SAO 'PAULO (UPI) — Seven of Brazil's 22 states : and at least one of its four armies .were reported in revolt j today against President Joao Goulart to halt what one rebel leader called "the accelerated Communist march to power" in this country. j Troops of the rebellious 2nd Army were reported marching from Sao Paulo toward Rio de Janeiro "to protect the principles of authority" which Goular's foes say he violated by "coddling" Rio's Good Friday mutineers. Goulart freed a group of leftist marines and sailors who defied military authorities! over the weekend by' barricading themselves in a Communist union hall. This "pocket revolt' touched off the crisis. In Rio, Goulart said he was sending troops to Belo Horizonte-cradle of the revolt-to crush the rebels there. There was no immediate report of large-scale fighting. The railway union called a strike on suburban lines I in the Rio area to protest the ! arrest of a Communist union leader, but early today there was no report of the "100 per cent" strike the Communists i had threatened to call in support of Goulard's policies. The states reported in revolt blanketed southern and . southwestern Brazil, all but encircling Rio. They included, the nation's largest and most populous states. . States in the north an d the Communist infested north-, east had not taken a stand. In Guanabara State I (Rio), anti-Communist Gov.

All Charged With Accepting Bribes In Numbers Ring By RONALD YOUNGBLOOD United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Sixteen od 22 Indianapolis police charged by a grand jury with accepting bribes to ignore a multi-million - dollar numbers racket today faced suspension from the force. The six others are retired, four of them Tuesday, only hours before the .indictments ending a three-week probe by the jury were returned. The lid was blown off the alleged police protection scandal when federal agents last summer raided one* headquarters of Isaac (Tuffy) Mitchell, who is serving a five-year term for income tax evasion, and found an adding .machine tape noting names of police officers and sums ranging from $10 to $100. The. officers, some with service covering 30.years, could be sentenced, upon conviction, to 2-14 year prison terms with fines ranging up to $1,000 each. Marion County Prosecutor Noble Pearcy said he had exhausted all, the leads the federal agents supplied him in connection with the alleged bribe taking. However, U.S. Dist. Atty. Richard Stein said while all of the people involved "were local, Mitchell had connections in other cities. There may be further investigation." Mitchell Inherited Racket The numbers racket, which attracted low-wage earners to place nickel and dime bets in hopes of big payoffs, had been •a fixture in the Hoosier capital for more than 25 years after Mitchell,. 52, a Russian/ immigrant, reportedly inherited the business and made it flourish. All' of the officers charged surrendered within hours of the return of the indictments and all were released without bond under orders of Criminal Court Judge Eugene M. Fife, Jr. Mitchell's chief lieutenant, Van ' Wert Mullin, ' who was whisked to the federal penitentiary at Terre^Haute six hours before the indictments were returned by the six-man jury to serve an 18-month income tax evasion sentence, was also indicted on bribery charges. The jury charged Mullin, who said he ,regretted that the officers were caught but hoped the investigation would continue so as to include "some big people in town,'' with one count of bribery and he was named on each of the other indictments, as being the payoff contact or "bagman." 3 PerCent Of Force The 22 officers, including one captain, seven lieutenants, 11 sergeants and three patrolmen, represent almost 3 per cent of the entire force of more than 900 men. . Four of those indicted were permitted to retire befdre the indictments against them were returned so as to preserve their pensions. They were Capt. Laurence Gigerich, Lt. Osa Woodall and Sgts. Wilbert Gruner and Robert Stiegelmyer. Two other already retired officers, Lt. Francis Dux and Sgt. Charles Schaubhut, also were indicted. ~ Other police officers indicted were: - « Lts^ Donald Burkert, Paul •Pearsey, David Jeter, Oscar Donahue 3 and James Mullins; Thomas Carr, George Corydon, Jack Herman, William Hyneman, Salvatore Rene, James Brentin, Robert Alkire,' and Vmcent Gatto; Gatfe's brother, •Patrolman Rosario" Galtd," - and two other patrolmen* Albert Sheridan and Joseph -White.
