Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 24, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON CRESCENT VOL. LII No. 3 28 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., SATURDAY, oaOBER 24, 1959 Price Seven Cents State Police Stage Widespread Raids In New York Cities 200 Troopers Hit 29 Towns, Arrest 142 BY MARVIN R. PIKE Albany, N.Y. Preci- sion-timed state police raids in more than a score of up- state communities were hail- ed by a top crime buster to- day as "a powerful blow against big time, organized gambling" in New York. Approximately 200 troopers burst into 79 bookmaking, policy and lottery establish- ments in 29 cities and villages yesterday and arrested 142 persons. "It was the largest raid of its kind ever made in this said Chairman John W. Ryan, Jr., of the state in- vestigation commission. Troopers made their biggest haul in Buffalo, the state's second largest city. They took 86 persons into custody, but had booked only 60 by early today. Most of the 60 were charged with conducting a lot- tery, a felony. Raid Many Buildings Other cities hit in the 3 p.m. crackdown included Niagara Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Troy. Schenectady and The raiders swooped down on candy stores, beauty shops, newspaper stores, apartments and private homes. Supt. Francis S. McGarvey of the state police said the raids "brok'e the back" of a gambling syndicate that spread into -several states. Through the syndicate, he said, bookies who had receiv- ed bets on a particular sports event could "lay off" the wa- gers with other money men, and spread the risk. The investigation commis- sion said the raids would have ramifications in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut. The crime agency did not elaborate. 2 Mentioned for Physics Award Stockholm Papers Say Americans Will Win Nobel Prize Stockholm Stockholm afternoon newspapers today named two American atomic Conservatives Study Possible Third Party Want Independents In Presidential Contest Next Year group of ul- tra-conservative men and women went in a series of day and night meetings today in an attempt to lay the foundations of a new political party.

Courtney, State's Rights nominee for governor of Lou- siana, said a major issue with aim is abolishment of the whole income tax system along with removal of the fed- eral government from compe- tition with private enterprise. Courtrtey said independents mentioned most often by con- servatives as presidential nominees are J, Braken Lee, former Republican governor of Utah and now running for mayor of Salt Lake City as an independent, and J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the FBI. He also said that if Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina would bolt the Demo- cratic party or Sen. Barry Goldwater would leave the GOP, they would make good nominees for the proposed new party. The two-day rally will end tonight with an address by J. Bracken Lee.

More Leaflets Showered on Cuban Capital Former Air Force Chief for Castro Says He Flew Plane Havana Mysterious planes slipped past Cuban air force patrols and showered Havana with more anti-gov- ernment leaflets yesterday. The aerial raids were the latest in a series that began Wednesday a day that brought the most, violent show of opposition to Fidel Castro since he took over the Cuban government New Year's day. Castro charged that "count- er revolutionary planes based in the United States" carried out the raids. He denounced U.S. authorities for failing to halt them. He is expected to take quick advantage of a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion report yesterday that for- mer Cuban revolutionary air force chief Pedro Diaz Lanz admitted flying a leaflet plane over Havana Wednes- day.

The new slant includes: Go-ahead and worry but- don't worry about your- worrying. That was the word today from Dr. Robert W. Wilkins of Boston, one of the nation's authorities on an ailment that afflicts some 15 million Am-i ericans. A former president of the America Heart association. Dr. Wilkins declared at a news conference during the 32nd annual scientific meet- ing of the association: "We used to say to a pa- tient with high blood pres- sure 'Take it easy and don't worry.' Can't Slop Worrying "Well, 'if there are two things a hypertensive con- genitally can not do, it's those two things. "By and large, there are some lazy hypertensives. But, in families of hypertensives, if traced, they are go-getters. They are enthusuastic and they worry. "They may not look it. They look placid, but this isn't deepseated in the psyche somewhere .where you have to dig it up with a pitch- fork with a psychiatrist. "They tell you. .'Doctor, I may seem placid, but I'm all fluttery inside. I smile so I won't take s poke at some- body.'. "They are tense people. I never tell my patients not to worry.

Moscow The Rus- sians today reported plans for a huge dam in Bering strait between Alaska and Siberia a dam which they said could transform Arctic wastes into fertile fields. Close Soviet-American co- operation would be needed for the project. Tass, the Soviet news agency, said the idea is for a 46-mile barrier of rein- forced concrete pontoons be- tween the western tip of Alaska and the Chukchi pen- insula. Designs for the dam have been completed by a Soviet engineer called Py- ctry Borisov and details have been published in Lit- erary Gazette. Exactly how the dam would be positioned was not disclosed. Forty-six miles would not be enough to bridge the 55-mile gap be- tween Chukchi peninsula and Alaska. A Tass translation of the Literary Gazette article said: "Borisov maintains that the dam, which would be 74 kilometers (46 miles) wide and would separate the Chukchi peninsula from Alaska, must be sectional, consisting of ferro-concrete pontoons with pumps. "Such pontoons could be built on the Soviet and American coasts, floated down to the Bering strait and installed there." Borisov claimed that his dam "will make it possible to change the climate of the polar region and to con- vert vast expanses of ever frozen ground on the terri- tory of the U. S. S. R., the U. S. A. and Canada into fertile fields." He said it would work this way: "The dam across the Ber- ing strait should neutralize the effect of the Labrador, east Greenland and other cold currents on the power- ful and warm gulf stream." Water pumped from the Arctic to the Pacific ocean would neutralize cold cur- rent which would be unable to meet and mix with the gulf Borisov said. "Simultaneously these pumps would step up the in- flux of the warm gulf stream waters. The gulf stream would pass unham- pered through the Arctic ocean giving off its heat." 'ormer Convict Shot Intersection New York A 48-year- old former convict was mys- teriously shot and critically wounded last night as he slow- ed his car for a traffic light at a busy Queens intersection. The victim, Vincent Sicili- ano, of Astoria, Queens, said he did not see who shot him. But witnesses told police they saw three men pile out of the car after the shooting. "I had stopped for a red ight at Thirtieth avenue (and Thirtieth street, in Astoria) when somebody opened the door on the passenger Siciliano told thing I knew, someone was shooting at me. I didn't get a look at who it was." However, witnesses said they heard three shots and saw three men jump out of the car. They said the men fled in different directions as Changes His Story ty.

AH we talked about was the present problems as to how we can best cooperate in the event the fact finding board is Taylor explained. "That's all I know." Taylor, a professor in the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Finance, said that under the Taft-Hart- ley law if an injunction is is- sued Finnegan must immedi- ately start mediation. Then the board shall be reconvened and its function is to report to the president at certain times on specific status of the he add- ed. Taylor denied reports that he had been in touch with the White House. He said the only persons with whom he talked was Finnegan. Urges Negotiations At Augusta, Ga., President Eisenhower today called on both sides in strike to con- tinue newly arranged negoti- ations until the dispute is set- tled. The president spoke out through an aide as represen- tatives of the industry and the United Steel Workers un- ion made ready to resume negotiations later in the day in Pittsburgh. James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, said Eisenhower has been kept closely posted at his vacation headquarters on the strike situation. The shutdown now is in the 102nd day. Referring to the president, Hagerty said: "He sincerely hopes that when both sides renew their negotiations this afternoon in Pittsburgh, they realize fully the obligation they owe to the United States and that they remain in consultation and negotiation until they settle it." Both sides are under mount- ing pressure to end the dis- pute. Neither the industry nor the United Steelworkers, how- ever, would comment on pos- sibilities of a new offer being made at the afternoon meet- ing.
