Valachi Believed Transferred FARMINGDALE, N.J. (AP) — By closing the Monmouth Airport to civilian airplanes for 15 minutes Sunday, the Army opened speculation concerning the whereabouts of underworld informer Joseph Valachi. Valachi has been telling federal authorities what he knows of the operations of a national crime syndicate. The 60-year-old convict was doing his talking at Ft. Monmouth. where he was under close guard at. the Army's Signal Corps center. During the 15 minutes that Army authorities curtailed civilian use of Monmouth Airport here, two military planes took off from the field. The airport is nine miles southwest of Ft. Monmouth. A spokesman at Ft, Monmouth declined to answer questions on Valachi's whereabouts or the possibility that he had been moved. The spokesman referred questioners to the Justice Department in Washington. In the capital, neither the Jus tice Department nor the Pentagon would comment. It was learned last week thai Valachi had been brought to Ft Monmoulh from the federal pen! tenliary in Atlanta, where he was serving a life sentence for killing a fellow inmate. The underworld reportedly has placed a $100,000 price tag on the informers' head.
