Informed sources said Sunday the case involves allegations of criminal tax fraud and would pro- duce a sensation in financial and business circles. If the government adheres to its tentative timetable, it was learned, evidence will be present- ed to a federal grand jury in New York City later this week. A final decision was being delayed pend- ing a special meeting of federal prosecutors later today. Cases Informants said at least a dozen tax fraud cases, including this one, were being developed against brokers, underwriters, stock ma- nipulators, "boiler room opera- tors" and Wall Street lawyers. They said the intensive work in the securities area was similar to past income tax crackdowns which have involved physicians, headwaitcrs, morticians, lawyers, small businessmen and even tug- boat captains. Some of the investigations have been under way for as long as three years. A large proportion involved Wall Street operators, but several center in other cities.

(AP Wirephoto France And Algeria Walk A Tightrope By SID MOODY AP Ncwsfeaturcs Writer In bullfighting the moment of trtith approaches when the bull, i blooded and weakened by the i picadors and bandillcros, stands confronting his last tormentor, the matador. It comes when the matador leans over the horns to deliver the coup de grace with his sword, exposing himself to one final, per- haps lethal thrust of the dying beast. France, in Algeria, is at a mo- ment of truth. After seven bloody years, the end of the Algerian war is in sight. But it is just at this mo- ment of settlement that the dying conflict may yet wrench France apart. For the diehard French colons in Algeria know that an agree- ment between President De Gaulle and the Algerian rebels would end their hopes to keep Algeria French. They are waging an in- creasingly open struggle to fore- stall this moment of truth. Grim For seven years the Algerian war has avoided the unthinkable prospect of Frenchman killing Frenchman. It is no longer un- thinkable. The underground OAS army of Gen. Salan has raided French bases in Algeria for arms. Its i agents in continental France have UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) U. S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson told the United Nations 'today that Cuba is trying to wreck the Alliance of Progress and that the American republics are determined to see that this does not happen. Stevenson addressed the General Assembly's 104-na- tion Political Committee after a representative of Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro accused the United States of new plans for aggres- sion against Cuba. The Cuban delegate, Mario Gar- cia-Inchaustegui, appealed to the United Nations' to halt the al- leged plans. Stevenson immediately denied the charges.

The greatest demand for work- ers during January came from in- dustry then private household, wholesale and retail trade and manufacturing. Unemployment as represented by claims for unemployment com- pensation increased about 50 per cent over December 1961. This increase is largely due to the temporary closing of two local plants. 27, 32. Sgt. engineer, Gillette, Wis. Lt, D.J. Hughes, 28, a pas- senger, Fort Walton Beach, Fla.

Workers Consider Contracts By BOB VOELKER PITTSBURGH lead- ers of the United Steelworkers Union, in one of the earliest starts ever, opened conferences today to map strategy for 1962 contract negotiations with the na- tion's basic steel industry. Headed by President David J. McDonald, the union's 34-man Ex- ecutive Board went into session behind closed doors at a midtown hotel. McDonald arrived 25 minutes late for the meeting, scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. He talked briefly with newsmen on generalities, but parried questions about the con- ferences. Union spokesman did say the board, which also will meet Tues- day, was to discuss a proposal for a shorter work-week in the steel industry. Recommendations of the board will be turned over to the union's International Wage Policy Com- mittae, which convenes in Pitts- burgh on Wednesday. The contract .for some basic- steelworkers expires June 30. President Kennedy put the heat on both the union and companies for an early start with the aim of getting an early settlement.
