Officials said Friday the ring- leadens called the shots from behind bars in the La Mesa pen- itentiary in a smuggling racket doing an estimated million business monthly.

Federal police said that in one ringleader's prison quarters they found in American currency, worth of jew- elry and elaborate telephone codes and drug transaction records.
