THE SUNDAY UfiRARlt LOGANSPORT PRESS ALL PHONES 4141 UNITED PRESS LOG ANSPORT, INDIANA, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1957 THE -ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE-TEN CENTS Missiles Worth $12 Mil. Fired By U.S. In Past Year ff - • - i . WASHINGTON • L?>-The military has fired more than 60 -'million- lars worth of intermediate . range ballistic missiles (ERBM) in tests during the oast year, about 12 million dollars within th e past week. That figure—for one type of weapons only—gives only a 'hint of the cost of the huge test program for missiles of all kinds. These unofficial, estimates — based on an average cost of about six million dollars for each test firing of a ballistic missile do not .include scores of millions more in developmental firings of other missiles. - .- - . ' The latter range from huge intercontinental ballistic" missiles (ICBM. 1 through . shorter range antiaircraft • and. ..bombardment guided missiles to numerous tests of components for missile systems and of "research vehicles" for acquiring basic data in weapon de- •si'gn. . . Also 'outside the estimate is the tion . . .even if a few heads -mus be knocked together."

Silence Follows Murder NEW YORK, W- Gangland'si- lence cloaked the killers, of Albert Anastasia Saturday as plans went forward for a modest non- underworld type of funeral for the one-time Murder, Inc., executioner. Police questioned more than 60 hoodlums and others—without re- sult-^a'bout the slaying of the mobster by two gunmen Friday in the Park Sheraton Hotel bar- benshop. "I never saw so many blind people in my life," commented Chief of Detectives James B. Leggett "Nobody- knows anything." Police" wanted to question gambler Frank Costello, known as the prime minister of -the underworld, but he was not in his, usual plushy haunts. . The body of the underworld bigwig went on public display in a plain, steel, $900 casket, in a Brooklyn funeral home. Funeral services were set 'tentatively for Tuesday. .Brother Got Works The- modest - arrangements .contrasted sharply with the funeral given last year.for Anasiiasi-a's . brother,• Joseph',-a-pier hiring boss who died peacefully in a hospital of'illness. _ The casket that carried Joseph to his grave, was built of. bronze and mahogany and reputedly cost $6000. Thirty-three* limousines were in the'funeral cortege. Flow-: er cars carried wreaths reportedly worth $15.000. The shooting raised 1 political overtones in. the city, which .will vote in a mayoralty election a week from next Tuesday. Robert Christenberry, Republican candidate seeking to unseat Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Democrat, seized upon the slaying as a campaign issue. Scorn For Law He said the murder, combined with the wounding .of Costello in an assassination attempt, earlier •this year, and the acid blinding of labor writer Victor Riesel last year "demonstrated the und-er- mous telephone call from a heavy administered by the Wagner-Tammany administration." Wagner, in his campaigning, made no reference to the slaying. Costello, the generally acknowledged 'underworld leader, now is 67 years old and has been in constant difficulties with authorities an recent years' over income tax, deportation and other troubles. An attempt was made to kill- him last M-ay. The bullet 'grazed his head. A high-ranking police official said-Anastasia was killed'to keep ibim from "taking over the mob." Young Gang Moving In Another theory was that the rivalry was not between Costello and Anastasia, but that a young gangland element engineered both shootings in a campaign to wipe out present leaders and take over. Here are other theories advanced in newspaper stories: That Anastasia was killed because he sought to take over the garment district crime empire of racketeer John Johnny Dio Dio(Continued on page 27) Call from Delphi Nabs Auto Thief Alter Hot Chase DELPHI—A man- who gave his name'as-Keith W.

LONDON (AP)—Marshal Georgi'Zhukov "has been relieved" of his post as Soviet defense minister, Radio Moscow announced Saturday night. The brief announce" ment gave no hint whether the Soviet World War II hero was being') demoted or moved to.a position of greater power. Marshal Rodion Y. Malinvoskyy who shared with Zhukov-in engineering some.of the Soviet war victories, was named to the defense post. He was moved up from his job as deputy defense minister. He previously had been Far East commander and commander of Soviet ground forces. Zhukov is 61; Malinpvsky 59. Zhukov once was banished irom Moscow to the Southern,command Stalin, who apparently was Jealous of his popularity; In the last four years he has been gaining steadily in power and position in the Soviet hierarchy, r There lias been a question whether Nikita Khrushchev himself was not beholden to Zhukov for his position-first at Marshal Zhukov Odessa by Josef as lirst secretary- of the Soviet Communist party and leading figure of power. Zhukov, as leader of the army, was reported to have thrown- his support to Khrushchev in. the cru; ial June, showdown in-the Communist party Central Committee which resulted in' .the -downfall -of 'pnmer Foreign' Minister V. M. VLoJofcov, former Premier Georgi Malenkov and lazar Kaganovich. Crossed With Boss? The dramatic- exit of Zhukov from the defense ministry could mean either that he has run afoul of Khrushchev for in another of power . in . the inclined to believe that the Marshal would not be demoted.; The reason is that Zhukov, as a victorious soldier, is somewhat on a par in public esteem, in Russia, with President 'Eisenhower's - popularity : in the United. States. Met In Germany The Russian and the Americaa military leaders met when they; - wer e occupation commanders in ' Germany at the ' end of the war,': Eisenhower • later acknowledged 1 his respect for Zhukov's military ability and said he-was. at a loss the &r words to meet Zhukov's Com- Kremlin or is ticketed for yet another step higher, possibly to premier. • There has been much-speculation recently that the present premier, ' Nikolai Bulganin, frequent traveling companion .or/Khrush-, diev^oh' goodwill visi£s/;to suchj places as India,/ south/east: 'Asia and/ Britain; 'rhigit"be 'onj'theway munist political- beliefs.
