Officials said Friday the ringleaders called the shots from behind bars in the La Mesa penitentiary in a smuggling racket doing an estimated $3 million business monthly. Seized records revealed a network that included France, Mexico, the U. S. and Canada, the officials said. Federal police said that in one ringleader’s prison quarters they found $30,000 in American currency, $100,000 worth of jewelry and elaborate telephone j codes and drug transaction records. In Mexican prisons, inmates may keep some private posses-! sions and live in quarters other than cells. Some even run small shops behind bars. .Major Outlet The federal Drug Enforcement Administration said there were, strong indications the ring had replaced the now-defunct, WASHINGTON (AP) — Nel-senate rules and house judiciary' The principal Rockefeller French Connection operation s0n Rockefeller has disclosed he committees that are considering items disallowed were $824,598 as the major outlet for heroin ... .    _    ,    .....    ...... originating in France.    '',l1 have to pay an addlti0nal the nomination The famous -French Cornute- *“3'718 ln 'oderal income and lion," publicized in a movie of Sd! taxes, a figure likel> to soar past $1 million when interest is GREENVILLE, S.

South (Apl — Eignt schoolchildren were killed Friday when a claymore mine planted by a 14-year-old boy exploded, spewing shrapnel across a schoolyard. Another 17 children were injured in the blast, which also killed two government militiamen and wounded four. Police said the main target was the military chief of Loc Khe. but he was away at the time.

At least six persons have reported seeing the four-and-a-half-foot, 100-pound native of Australia leaping through residential neighborhoods on the Northwest side in the last two days. And no one knows where it came from. Two husky policemen, Michael Byrne and Lenny Cian-gi, met up with it in an alley at 4 a rn. Friday. While it might be unfair to say they lost the battle that ensued, the kangaroo escaped and Ciangi is suffering sore shins. The two were on their way to assist another policeman who had been ordered to investigate a citizen’s complaint of a kangaroo in an alley. “We turned into Cornelia street and there was the kangaroo in the alley,” Byrne recalled. They watched it hop into a back yard and radioed this message: “You won’t believe this, but we got the kangaroo cornered in a yard. Send us some assistance — it looks like we’re gonna have a fight.” Byrne was right. He gave this account of the battle; “He ran on us, but he fought when we cornered him. Any animal will. Any man will. I almost had the cuffs on him but I got scared and my partner got scared when he started to growl. Then he started to scream and get vicious. “We were afraid he would bite us. We were afraid we would have to have rabies shots. Later we found out they don’t bite. “My partner got kicked pretty bad in the legs. He (the kangaroo) smacks pretty good, but we got in a few good punches to the head and he must have felt it. Too bad we didn’t have our nightsticks. Tnen we really could have hammered him.” As squad cars began to ar- the animal hopped a and took off down the rive, fence street. “I’d say he was going 20 miles per hour,” Byrne said. Actually the animal is a she, not a he. Experts decided that after all witnesses agreed it had a pouch. And Joel Kitchener, assistant director of the Lincoln Park Zoo, said he believed the creature was actually a wallaby, a breed of kangaroo that grows to six feet. He estimated its value at $2,500.
