Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 4, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Hughes defends veto See story on page 2 Criminals show new wrinkles U Loaded dice are electric By JAMES E WARNER New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON The FBI the Secret Service and Police Departments around the country think theyre smart and most of them are but the criminal world keeps coming up with new wrinkles in attempts to con found the cops Heres one new gimmick you and perhaps many police of ficers and some gamblers havent heard about Recent innovations in dice control include a small tran sistor transmitter built into the dice It is similar to those used in remote controls for opening garage doors Loaded dice have been used for centuries but a p p 1 y i n modern electronic devices to them illustrates how criminals are keeping up to date although this particular device has not appeared in a Space Age comic strip There was no indication that such electronically loaded dice are being used in legal gambl ing casinos but rather that they are used by hustlers and smartmoney boys in illegal games How to use coinoperated lockers in terminals and other heavily travelled places for il legal purposes how to use tele phones without detection in some cases for handling num bers games and other gambling bets and an almost foolproof method of raising the value of travelers checks are among other new criminal methods of which the FBI warned police throughout the country A large ring operating in large cities used an almost fool proof method of raising the value of travelers checks They were successful in cashing ap proximately worth of these altered checks over a fourmonth period before their apprehension Their method was to purchase several checks for a minimum amount of money each but to include large figures such as eight and nine They would then carefully cut out the figures from all the chocks and re place them rearranged to raise the amount to a substantial sum The figures were cut with a sharp cutting tool and replaced the use of a little moisture around the edges of the inserted numeral and pressed firmly into place with a hot iron The in sertion of the numbers was done so neatly that detection through normal observation was very difficult In most instances the inserted numbers would stay in place even after the checks were processed through IBM machines The use of coinoperated lock ers to perpetrate crime is be coming commonplace in some FROM OVR WIRE SERVICES Disease spreads SAN DIEGO An outbreak of meningi tis spread to a second re cruit company at the
