Murphy declared Wednesday that his de partment exhibited no the fairness and justice every American has a right to expect in its dealings with Billie Sol Estes He said he had received two small crates of cantaloupes from Estes But he said no one tried to bring pressure of any kind There was no favoritism he said I wanted to see that all citizens concerned includ ing Estes got what they were legally entitled more and no less Murphy he departments sec ond ranking official defended his actions and decisions in a detailed statement to the Senate Gambling still pays for some But inquiries are ordered By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau gross take from gambling in the United are States is at least billion a year About 70000 persons engaged in the business The first of these figures comes from testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations The second estimate was made last year by Atty Gen Robert F Kennedy when appearing be fore the House Judiciary Antitrust subcommittee You can get almost any kind of estimate you want on the proceeds of gambling Take horseracing alone The annual legitimate betting handle is well in excess of than billion in New York State And according to a rule of thumb well regarded by gamblers for every dollar bet on the track two dol lars are bet off Many more bil lions are wagered illegally with bookmakers on baseball football and basketball games t The sum of estimattc of illegal gambling however rough is that crime does pay and handsomely It is the belief of the attorney it is not exclusive with the crime of gambling pays for other crime Kennedy told the House subcom mittee last year Organized crime is nourished by a number primary of activities but the source of its growth is illicit gambling This Js the principal reason for a federal grand jury investigation of gambling at Las Vegas Nav where the pastime of course is legal The attorney general is checking on the possibility that bigtime racketeers have moved into secret ownership of some of the Las Vegas pleasure traps The Justice Department for a year and a half has had a 60 man staff concentrating on 700 known underworld leaders In the Enemy Within Kennedy wrote If we do not on a national scale attack organized criminals with weapons and techniques as effec tive as their own they will de stroy us This is in marked contrast with the traditional view of the Federal Bureau of Investi at least the preKen nedy large criminal syndicates do not exist or if they do that dealing with them is a state and local law enforcement problem Kennedy told the National As sociation of District Attorneys that three federal laws enacted last year at his request had en abled the government to make a denl in illegal gambling He urged the passage of his pending anticrime package proposals ban ning interstate shipment of pin ball machines and authorizing limited legalized wiretapping Investigation crimes in of specific serious I n v e stigations subcommittee The group is trying to determine whether the Texas farm tycoon got favored treatment Murphy who has been accused of bad judgment at best dealt at length with his decision to permit Estes to become a mem ber of the National Cotton Ad visory Committee A subordi nate official had recommended strongly against the move be cause of derogatory informa tion about Estes If the decision was in error Murphy said it was an error due to my application of the principle that in balancing the power of the government against an individual citizen the rights of the citizen should be given due consideration even tq the extent of considering him inno cent until he had been proved guilty Murphy recalled he received the first crate of cantaloupes six or eight weeks after Estes attended his first Cotton Ad visory Committee meeting in July 1961 AfUr the second crate arrived several weeks later he said he wrote Estes not to send any m o r e although they were nighty good cantaloupes Exceptfor these canta loupes Murphy remarked I lave received no gifts gratui ties or other benefits from Estes No one has ever asked me or tried in any way to in duce me to make any decision or take any action relating to Estes on any basis other than ts merits Two other CAROLINE IN COSTUMECaroIine KennedyPfouT yearold daughter of the President wears a Taran tella dancer costume

James T Patton president of the National Farmers Union said the plan would fail because not enough farmers would join the holding action of the NFO Furthermore the consumers wouldnt stand for it if in the long run it got down where it would pinch them Patton said Farm products are a farmers wages Its not like some body putting capital into something When he needs those things have got to go market Patton said Don Magdanz executive sec retary of the National Livestock Feeders Association said the NFO plan was definitely un wise Magdanz said it unquestion ably cannot accomplish satisfac tory results He said nonNFO members such as the livestock marketers who belong to his or ganization would continue to market their stock in an orderly fashion Hart Jorgensen president of the Omaha Neb Livestock Foundation said previous NFO withholding actions hadsno effect on the market However Jorgensen said he didnt know whether the NFO now had enough members to make the action effective Jbrgensen and other stockmen said beef and pork cannot be stored and an increase in ani mal tonnage could depress prices when they were finally marketed The irony is one official said the beef they hold back will gain as much as 2A pounds a day When they go to market therell be more tonnage which depresses feats the NFOs purpose Exactly where the pinch might be felt first is again not easy to
