v. Engagements Around Nation By HARRY FERGUSON WASHINGTON (UPI) - If Joseph Valachi .survives the ills that flesh is heir to ai)d the anger of the underworld, he is likely to become a wandering minstrel. He will go from grand jury to grand jury around the country "singing." meaning telling all he knows about his former colleagues in crime. That is one way the federal government can cash in on its most notorious stool pigeon. Murder is not a federal offense and if prominent gangsters are going to be convicted of homicides which Va­ lachi says they ordered or committed, it will have to be done at local levels and on the basis of his testimony. Convicting a big-time gangster of anything is not as easy as it appears to be on the face of things. The outstanding development of the last 15 years has been the gangsters' invasion of legitimate business. Some of them have been able to abandon crime. Others still arc up to their necks in underworld activities, but are fairly secure behind a facade of legitimate business. They pan hire people to do the dirty work. Visits District Attorney One of the top gangsters named by Valachi was Thomas Luchese, THE BIG QUESTION ON HEALTH INSURANCE FOR SENIOR CITIZENS: IS IT AVAILABLE? alias Three Finger Brown. The other day in Mineola, L. I. district attorney William Cahn was mildly surprised to receive a visit from Luchese, who was accompanied by a lawyer. He had come, he said, to explain that he was a law-abiding business man, no matter what newspaper reports had to sav about him. say YES rom OF OMAHA Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co, Call me for full information on the variety of plans for people 65 and over, offered by Mutual of Omaha, the company that insures more than 1 million 200 thousand senior citizens. THOMAS, MGR. BONO! BLDG. PH. 343-8583 The evolution of the American gangster took place in three steps. At the turn of the century there were gangs (the Hudson Dusters in New York, for instance) who were small time operators. Robbery, picking pockets and such minor offenses were about the limit of their activities. The organized gangs, operating on a big scale, came in with prohibition, which opened up a lucrative market for illegal alcohol. Al Capone was not the only one to cash in on it, but he became the best known. The repeal of prohibition left the gangsters with lots of cash on hand and they began looking around for places to invest it. "Underworld kings have grown into a dominating force on the national scene/' says J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Most have amassed great wealth and accumulated major holdings in widespread business enterprises. Some unions are controlled and exploited by hoodlums/' Explains Business Process A Justice Department man who has been fighting gangsters for 30 years explained how they went about trying to make themselves into legitimate business men. "For a big operation," he said, "the gangster always had to have good connections with corrupt officials in city and local governments. The tax assessor was the best one. He ccrld bedevil a business man with higher and higher assessments until the man was ready to give up and sell out to the gang. "A fire inspector or health inspector, in the pay of the mob, also was valuable. By the time a business man had been ticketed for a dozen violations of the fire laws or the sanitary code, he was ready to throw in the towel. Or in some cases he would sell a half interest to the mob and then, of 1 * * ft* Hi mm ii on famous SLANT-0-MATIC zigzag models during the value-packed SINGER SALE ATHON fSLANT-O-MATIC zigzag with ? the exclusive Slant-needle—, gives you zigzag stitching at its easiest, straight stitching at its smoothest.

Cos'a Nostra, which is what he calls the national crime syndicate, Apparently spreads through eight or more cities, but it does not have a monopoly on racketeering. There are thousands of hoodlums, big and little, who will be untouched by Valachi's relev&tions. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy puts it this way: "Let me make clear that no one believes the tide of battle has turned, although we have made significant progress. It is not likely to be decided by one set of laws, one anti-crime program or one administration. Ultimate success will require years of co-operation among federal and local agencies."
