fAGE TEN BLVTHJUVILLS (AKk.; COUKIKE NKWS Missing Witness In Reuther Case Sought in Canada DETROIT (AP) — Wayne County Prosecutor Gerald K. O'Brien, working against time, prepared a court move today to push the effort to track down his missing key witness in the Walter Reuther shooting case. Tb* prosecutor sought it warran charging assault with Intent to kll against ex-convict Donald Rltchii so that the Ml aid of Canadian police would be assured. Provincial police of Ontario, where Ritchie apparently fled after eluding his police guards Friday in Detroit, said they could make an active search for him without the formal warrant. However, the Ontario police were reported on the alert. The home of Ritchie'* mother and * glr] friend wer« reported under surveillance. O'Brien's move was the latest official ctep in the bizarre story of reputed secret confidences, fears of gangland vengeance on Ritchie, and then his sudden flight. Ritchie, S3, named by O'Brien as the witness who implicated four other men in the shotgun attack on ReutbAr, skipped out as the slate was completing its court case for presentation Thursday. At that time Carl Rends, 35, one of the defendants, is to be examined on charges of conspiracy and assault. Renda bu denied the charges. O'Brien said that M Ritchie were not found the case against Renda and the other tbree might collapse. The whereabouts of one of the latter trio, Santo (Sam) Perrone. father-in-law of Renda, still was unknown. Perrone has not been seen since before issuanct of the charges last Wednesday. One unsupported rumor had It that Ritchie fled out of anger over a reference to himself In a newspaper as a "squealer." At the same time O'Brien said he feared Ritchie might be killed by gangsters if the police did not catch up with him. The police search got aid from an unexpected quarter. Aid from Defendant It came from Clarence Jacobs, Tecurnseh, Ont. co - defendant whom Ritchie allegedly named as the trtggerman in the attempt on the life of Reuther at the CIO leader's home the night of April 30, 1948.

CLJANIRS Within Alcoholics Anonymous, the year 1953 closed as the eighteenth year of a successful fellowship of men and women sharing their experience, strength and hope that they might solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. 1953 for A A was a monumental year of growth in action for the lone primary purpose ... to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers." An increased consciousness of the opportunity and the obligal'm of service was reflected in the spirit and works of individual groups as well as in the collective spirit of th« world wide fellowship. Outside AA, there were many new activities by agencies of medicine, church and government that indicated an increased consciousness of the fact that alcoholism is everybody's problem." An aroused society was fast proclaiming that the sick mind and sick body of the chronic drinker were an important concern of the public health rather than merely a blot on the public morality. Research and education came into action on many new fronts to make 1953 a year of hope for the 4,000,000 American'alcoholics. AA GROWS NEW GROUPS That the AA message had been constantly carried in 1935 is best attested b.v the registration of new groups through the year. As of April, 1953 (issuance date of AA's annual directory) there were 3,938 groups. In the ensuing six months, two new groups a day were added to the roster, to bring the yearend total of registered AA units above the 5,000 mark. Prison groups showed a steady, high rate of growth, 31 being added since April in institutions for a total of 211. Hospital groups increased by 16, for a total of 117. Outside the United States, there was a similar growth, with a total of 821 groups in 62 countries now in the world-wide neighborship. Canada reported new strength in every province. But AA's 1953 growth was measurable beyond numerical gains; it was a year of solid progress in maturity and unity.
