New York, Aug. the Italian detectives in the city, 75 in number, were summoned to police headquart- ers today and assigned to stop the wave of Italian crime. The serious- ness of the situation became apparent today when it was learned ths Italian government had received through its consul here a list of the crimes committed by natives of that country here since the first of year, and was much exercised by the showing. U.was stated that the de- tectives' bureau has a li-at of no leas than ex-Italian convicts believed to be in New York City at the present lime. The immediate provocation of the Uallan criin-3 crusade was the two Kidnapping oasos reported to tbe po- lice yesterday and still unsolved. In addition, police reports show fourteen cases of bomb throwing since July 1-1. The action of Police Commissioner Waldn today practically revives the once famous Italian detective bureau, disbanded only a month ago.
