(N10A Toleplioto.) CFnCAGO. June 25. (UP) -Police, fearing a .sudden outbreak In the long-smouldering war for control of Chicago gambling, sought live former leaders of Ihe old Ca- )>onc mob today In the ambush shooting of James M. Ragen. Sr., wealthy tycoon of racing information. Ragcn was shot and seriously wounded lust night when lie stopped his sleek, silver-colored car for n reel light at a busy Intersection. The shots came from a dilapidated fruit truck covered with a tnv|Mu- liii which hid the assailants and their weapons. Police said the shooting was carefully planned and executed in typical gangland technique. The camouflaged truck, however, was .in innovation in Chicago shootings, and led police to believe that the gunmen had been imported. Tlie shooting was the scor.d attempt on Ragcn's life in seven weeks. Police believed it marked renewed efforts by former hciici;- nicn of Scarfacc Al Capoue to muscle into control of Ragcn's lucrative news service which supplies race results to gambling jointc. Accardingly. detectives sought for questioning five Capone Hypiie "Loud Mouth" Levin, .Jake "Greasy Thumb" Gu/,ik, Murray "The Camel" Humphreys, 'Joseph Mnrcnngelo and Tony Acc.irdo, sometimes called Joe Baiter;. Ragen was driving alone Ihrouii'i the hour tratiic, but he was followed by his bodyguards, Walter Peilclicr and Martin Walsh, in another car. As Kaijcn braked for the slop- light Ihe fruit truck drew alongside. Suddenly the tarpaulin vras jerked away nnd two sIiotRiu';; \\rn-. thrust out from between fruit crates. One gun sent a bias; into H:i- gen's car. The oilier fired a volley at the car of the bodyguards, a few feet behind. Shot spalU'rcil the street and tlie rush hour crowd ran for shelter.
