Gang iWar Flares in Chicago; Old Method Used I Continued from P«ge One. I former members o_f Caponc's mob still conducted those businesses in Cook county, but investigators doubted the outbreak was connected directly with Caponc. now seriously ill in Alcatraz Prison, or that it resulted from division of his personal "interests." The three men drove up to the bakery after noon In an automobile stripped of license plates. They stepped tl i "ugh the door and smil- insly greclcd Nick Costcllo, 32, Sam's brother. "Where's Sam?" they demanded. Nick :un- oned his brother from a rear room. One of the men put out his hand as Costcllo approached. "Hi'ya Sam." he said. But the killer's hand held an automatic pistol. He opened fire and his companion^ joined him. Costello fell with nine bullet wounds. His three associates emerged from a back room, joined Nick, and returned the fire as the men fled. Between -JO and 45 shots were fired, all from .45 caliber automatics. Onofrio. who surrendered to police several hours after the shooting, said he could identify at least one of the gunmen but denied he knew their names. He and Chris Ciordono. 50. a general handyman at the bakery, were held for questioning. Kelly believed the injured men knew their assailants but were remaining true to cancland's code and i refusing to "saucal." Sam Costcllo. Lieutenant Kelly ·aid. succeeded Philip Plnzzn as the bootleg kins of Chicago Heights, when Piazza was slnin in 1928. He formed a partnership with Vinccnzo Ammirati. alias Jimmy Emory, now reported in New Orleans. Kelly said Ammirati was reputed to be 1 CaDone's brother-in-law-husband of the former gang leader's sister. The method used by Costello's slayers was almost identical to that employed by the assassins of Dion O'Bnnion in the 1920's. O'Banion. predecessor of Capone, was slain in his florist shop by gangsters who shook his hand before they fired. The bakery shooting was the first wholesale gang clash in Cook county since the St. Valentine's Day massacre when seven gangsters were lined against .a wall in a Chicago earage and machine-gunned to death. Some of the assassins were disguised in police uniforms. HAWKEYE MAN AUTO VICTIM; IN HOSPITAL Bombay Reboy Has Leg Broken When Struclf Along Road. | OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST removed.

WEST PENN RAILWAYS Today, in Washington As If Is Interpreted By David Lawrence Continued from Page Four, gone down, and the local authorities administering relict have one icalc of expense, while the Federal Government has another. There is no uniformity, and it is the hardest thing in the world to Ret out ot the WPA the detailed figures as to what are are reasons for this variation in cost in the same city and with the same kinds of relief bencflcinvies. The start! idcnce took ng fuel is that, if Prov- ovcr the entire relief load, it woi Id have to raise about 510,000,000 iii addition to ;is present tax collections ot $13,000,000 for city purposes outside of relict. Docs It seem possible that American cities can find tax sources sufficiently productive of revenues as to double lax receipts? And is this to be accomplished by doubling tax rates? Today's relief load in the Nation-Federal, slate and city--is estimated at about 54,000,000,000 a year'.- This is equivalent to the total cost of city government outside of relief. It is equal also to practically all the money derived from taxes on real and personal properly in the United States. What's the trouble? citizens' organizations In various cilies which have taken the trouble to cet the facts about themselves are wondering. Is it inertia? Have sundry citizens who used to support relatives turned their unemployed relatives over to relief? Have persons on WPA work failed to seek jobs in I93G and 1937 when relief rolls r.hould' have gone down? And why have costs kept up? Something odd happened, for example, in St. Paul, which used to take care of old age pensions for about 1,000 persons over 70 years of age with about $188,000. Then came the plan whereby the Federal Government paid half and the other was split so that the state of Minnesota paid two-sixths and the city of St. Paul Just one-sixth. The number of old age pensioners suddenly jumped to 5,000, which was accounted for in some slight measure by the fact that tile new law applied to 65 years as the eligibility mark instead of 70. But the cost to the city of St. Paul, which had borne 1'ie entire burden before of 1.000 pel-sons at an expense of $180,000, now rose to $180,000 for all of Us one-sixth share which'the city was to provide. In other words, the new expanse was six times the old. Why haven't these things been brought out before? What are the causes? What can be done about it? The immediate question will be asked: What has Congress been doing these last five years while a problem ot such great danger to the solvency of the country and the raising of tax revenues has been diifting along in worse and worse proportions every year? Finally, a committee of tiie United States Senate has waked up to the desperate nature of the whole relief business, and the public may get the truth. When the facts are known, the next step is to find out \vhy jobs arc not being created to Ret people off the relief rolls. It becomes pertinent to know whether the Administration itself is helping or .hindering the creation of jobs and hence pie- venting the reduction of oxp'mse for the taxpayer as well as injuring the workinnman whose purchasing power dollar will certainly diminish if, sooner or later, an end is not put to the continued use of boriowcd money for relief.
