Chicago and "got cut in for a 22 per cent interest" in the racing news service in 1935 and 1936. His function was to try to get customers for the service on the West Coast. There was "some indication that Rosselli "muscled his vay into the racing news service, Kefauver related. Rosselli testified he formerly owned an interest in the Agua Caliente race track near Tijuana, Mexico, and was a part-owner of a gambling ship with Dragna In 1930-31, Kefauver reported. Roselli and Dragna were arrested on one occasion as they left the gambling ship with Charles Fischetti of Chicago, Capone gangster. They had a large sum of money and several revolvers in their possession. "Rosselli had a wide acquaintance with the Chicago Capone group and with racketeers in New York and elsewhere," Senator Kefauver said. In Movie Production Now. "In recent years, he has been an associate motion picture producer with the Eagle Lion Studio, which produced 'Canon City, 'He Walked by Night and 'End of the Santa Fe Trail. Rosselli was one of five Capone gangsters who were paroled in August 1947 after serving one-third of 10-year sentences for an attempt to extort $1,000,000 from the movie industry. Dragna, whose real name is Antonio Rizzotti. is not an American citizen, ' Kefauver pointed out. Dragna came to the United States in 1898, returned to Italy, came back to the United States In 1914 and has been in this country since. He has engaged in gambling and bootlegging, Kefauver related. He was owner of Universal Sports News of Los Angeles, a racing news firm which was a customer of the Trans-American service. When Trans-American went out of business, after the Capone gang got control of Continental Press Service, Dragna sold Universal Sports News to Illinois Sports News. This deal was arranged in 1947 by Edward Maloney, Los Angeles representative of the Illinois service. Paid $500 a Week. After the sale, Dragna testified, he received $500 a week from Illinois Sports News for supplying racing information from West Coast tracks. That arrangement ended last February when California authorities halted transmission of racing news service by wire. The Senate committee learned that Dragna went to Chicago to find out why he was cut off the payroll last February. "But Mr. Dragna could not recall coming to Chicago in 1950," Senator Kefauver related. "Yet he says he knows various Chicago racketeers and gangsters in New York, Cleveland and Miami. "Both Rosselli and Dragna admitted they knew Lucky Luciano and others of the Mafia-type. However, they knew nothing about the Mafia (secret Sicilian black-hand society)." Edward J. McBride, University of Miami student who owns Continental Press Service, repeated previous testimony to the effect that his uncle, Thomas F. Kelly, runs the business and he (McBride) has never made any decisions on policy or operation. The seventeenth and final witness was Luis Kutner, Chicago attorney. He vehemently denied a report that he obtained $60,000 from racketeers by falsely claim ing he could "fix" the Senate committee, Kefauver reported. Kutner said he had been prom- -t ised a $10,000 fee to represent Harry Russell, Chicago gambler, before the committee, but actually got nothing after Russell failed to testify in response to a subpena. Attorney for Drury. Kutner was attorney for William J. Drury, dismissed Chicago police lieutenant, who was shot to death Sept. 25 before he could deliver proffered evidence to the Senate committee. Kefauver plans to go into the Drury killing when he returns to Chicago. Kutner said Drury told him on Sept. 19 he had "something that will stand up" on James M. Ragen, head of Continental News Press, who was fatally wounded in the summer of 1946. "It's a bull's-eye I can't miss on this one," Kutner said Drury told him. "It will make the Ke fauver committee retry the entire Ragen case." Drury stated he had "a vital witness" in the Ragen murder, but gave no details, Kutner continued. However, he quoted Drury as saying that a safe robber now serving a sentence in the States-ville (111.) prison had information about the Ragen case and about the $1,000,000 robLery of Brink's, money transportation firm, in Boston last January. Meanwhile, it was learned the Senate committee plans to subpena records of Chicago's Sportsman's race track, dating back to its opening in 1928. Move to Revoke 20 Kansas City Liquor Licenses.
