The district attorney's office said .Coppola's life is in danger, too. Asst. Dist. Atty. Alexander Herman told General Sessions., Judge Abraham .N. Geller, who ordered Coppola held: "If this man walks out, it may very well be the beginning of- open warfare by the hoodlums in this city." Coppola was strangely absent last Friday morning when .two masked gunmen waylaid Anastasia arid shot him to death as he relaxed in a barber chair in the Hotel Park Sheraton. "There's nothing on earth I fear," remonstrated Coppola, 49. "I was just a friend, of. his . I haven't an' enemy in the world, and I thought Mr. Anastasia hadn't any either.

Witness In Danger However, Herman declared in court: "From what I have learned from police officials, I am convinced that this witness, himself, is in immediate danger .of meeting the same fate as the subject of this investigation." Coppola has received considerable attention from authorities, especially with evidence that someone apparently fingered An- astasila less than two hours before the/slaying. .The- paunchy Coppola told reporters he. knows nothing about the assassination. But police said Coppola was uncooperative during lengthy questioning. Holding him as a material witness could indicate polity think Coppola knows more than -he's telling, or merely that more toe is- needed to .question him and check bis story. Oh the surface, at least, the investigation into the sensational slaying of th e old. Murder, Inc., mob's chief executioner seemed to be getting nowhere. There was speculation that a gang war already is- underway and that Anastasia's murder will not be the last of its kind." During the day, Anastasia went to a lonely grave without any of the fanfare, that gangland customarily grants its own. There were about' 30 persons at a Hknin-ute funeral service for the victim. Amastasia had,a hand in an estimated 63 •murders-for-hire in the 1930's by the old Murder, Inc., mob, the enforcement arm of the nation's crime syndicate. i In death,'Anastasia was rejected by the Roman Catholic church into which he was born in a small Italian fishing village. He was denied Catholic burial as a "public and manifest sinner." II GALL Final 'rites for Anna Gall, 74, of 508 Shaw, will be held at the Chase- Miller chapel at 1:30 p.m. today with Rev.
