But they assert congressional tightening (if purse strings is hampering the light against the Syndicate. "We'ic stretching and straining all the while," said Assistant Ally. Gen. Fred M. Vinson Jr., of the department's Criminal Division, "but the fact is we're having to rob Peter to pay Paul to keep our people in the field. Vinson and Henry Peterson, head of the division's organized crime section, report highly mobile task forces of federal crime fighters are marking inroads into l.a Cosa Nostra, but that more money is needed for additional men. The task forces, spearhead of the Justice Department's most recent efforts against organized crime, work with other federal agents in selected cities to pressure organized hoodlum elements. In Detroit, lor example, they report lia indictments 1 of them las! Thursday. The task groups have inlil-traled five areas so far, and arc described bv Justice Department oflicials as the biggest boon to organized crime-busting since Klliot Ness. Like guerrilla warfare, it's difficult, Vinson said in an interview, to pinpoint gains against the underworld. But he thinks that since 1W1, when Ally. den. Kobert F. Kennedy began the present campaign, "the graph has levelled off and mavbe has gone down a bit." Some ollicials estimate it may take 111 yeais of v igorous hurts." This is the job of the task forces, and two more groups leave the department for secret destinations within the next month. Another two, Peterson disclosed, are "on the drawing board" for early next year. Bui Vinson and Peterson complain they've been left by Congress with inadequate funds to carry on 'he war. Vinson say s the department asked tor i(Kl additional assistant U.S. attorneys and got (.". He wanted 4(1 more lawyers lor the criminal division a battery of five is used in each task foK'e and didn't get any. A demand for funds to provide 2DD more narcotics agents was halved. But the heat's on, and there are reports of discomfort and movement in the underworld. Kngland, where gambling has flourished in recent years, is considered ripe for sophisticated American racketeers. "They'll go where the action is," Peterson said, recalling that the Mafia sought other places when Fidel Castro took over Cuba and the Havana casinos closed. There is evidence the Syndicate is currently releasing some of itshold on Las Vegas interests since billionaire Howard Hughes began buying up the major gambling spots. Vinson said an indication the task force scheme is beginning to pay off is the "obvious unwillingness of the sec 99: Only 6! twin or double bedding sets, mattress and box springs; reg. 129.95 Only 1!
