(J) — Big-time gambler Joe Adonis, already serv ing a term in New Jersey State prison, now faces a government move to aepori mm 10 naiy. Immigration Service officers are due here today to serve a deportation warrant on the stocky, greying, 52-year-old underworld figure. Issued in Washington Friday, the document charges Adonis ac tually is an Italian although he claims to be an American-born citizen. Adonis, whose real name is Jo seph Doto, was spotlighted in 1951 by the Senate Crime Investigating Committee— headed by Sen. Kefauver (D-Tenn)— as one of the "big six" of American crime. Until then, although arrested on six different charges from 1926 to 1940. he had not served a day in iail. The government claims Adonis is an alien and thus subject to deportation and that he was not in possession of necessary immigration documents when he re-entered this country at Miami, Fla.. after a short visit to Cuba during the winter of 1947-48.

Meyer was erroneously named author of a letter praising the Russian peo ple.

The congressman said Tuesday that Moscow Fravda in 1947 had quoted Mrs. Meyer as writing to a Soviet journal: "We feel profound admiration for the people of the Soviet Union." Mrs. Meyer termed Velde's statement "an outright falshood." The author of the letter was found to be Mrs. G. S. Mayer, wife of a' retired Port Clements, British Columbia, rancher.

President Ei senhower ended wage controls two weeks ago. The cost of living itself advanced about 5 per cent during the two year penoa, beginning in January, 1951, covered by the report. Average hourly wage increase amounted to liy2 per cent. Forced Loan LOS ANGELES Uft- A young man approached Otto Shaffer, assistant manager of a loan company, and asked Friday about getting a loan.

OPT N tw spaplrR RCHi VE Man Doomed By Disease Is Acquitted NEW YORK m— Vincent PurIi. 39 - year - old tuberculosis victim whose attorney says he has only a year to live, was acquitted Friday night of two murder charges in the shooting of his wife and step-daughter July 17. An all-male Bronx County Court jury returned the verdict after deliberating 3 hours and 15 minutes. The defense had called 56 witnesses during the six-week trial to prove that Pugh, a war veleian, was temporarily insane at the time of the shooting. Pugh, a chauffeur, was held after the fatal shooting of his wife, Eleanor. 37, and her daughter, Mrs. Jane Curley Whalen, 22, in their Bronx apartment. The shooting followed an argument during which, Pugh testified, his wife taunted him by suggesting he was not the father of their 8-year-old son, Vincent jr. Spectators in the coui iroom cheered the verdict. Defense Atty. Bernard A. Lauren was mobbed by men who pounded him on the back and women who smothered him with kisses. Lauren said in his summation that treatment of Pugh's illness had not been successful and that his client expects to die within a year.
