Gangland slaying probed VV.dn.idnT, July 19, 1971 THE LETHBRIDCE HKAID 29 Israel reached by immigrants from U.S. TEL AVIV (.Reuter) More than immigrants from the United States have come to Is- rael since the six-day war of 1M17, the annual conference of the Zionist Organization of America was told here. Rabbi Mcir Kahane of New York, head of the militant Jew- ish Defence League, was per- mitted to address the congress after a debate on his request. He warned of what he termed growing anti-semitism in the United States. His remarks were challenged by the Zionist organization pres- ident, Herman Wiseman, who accused Kahane of fomenting fears and panic. On Saturday, New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller told the con- ference the United States has a firm commitment to help Israel. Rockefeller did not specify how this commitment was to be carried out, but said that a de- feat for Israel would be a defeat of everything the U.S. stood for. In a prepared speech read for him at the convention, Rockefel- ler said President Nixon had made clear, through his actions as well as his words his deter- mination to work with Israel for the achievement of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.

Apply now for permits before farm gets busy WINNIPEG (CP) Opening delivery quotas for wheel, bar- ley and oats in the 1972 crop year were announced Monday by the Canadian Wheat Board. The quotas, effective Aug. 1, include a two-bushel quota on wheat and a five-bushel quota on barley for all producers. An additional two-bushel quota on wheat will be in effect in cer- tain shipping blocks in Alberta and Saskatchewan that supply grain to the west coast. Commissioner Pi. H. Esdale said the opening quotas are larger than usual because sales commitments are higher than other years. He added: "Pro- ducers who have grain on hand are urged lo deliver their grain before they get loo busy with their harvest. Some may have an opportunity lo deliver grain direclly from the combine. In either case, producers should apply for their new permit books now." The quotas for wheat, barley and oats: Wheat (A) Two ousels per quota acre for deliveries of all grades in all shipping blocks. Wheat (B) Two bushels for delivery of all grades in the fol- lowing 10 blocks: Prince Albert South, East and West; Biggar North and West; Edmonton North, South and West; Hanna South and West.

There were no in- juries. NEW YORK (AP) Sifting theories and evidence, police ex- perts here sought to fit the slaying of top Mafia figure Thomas (Tommy Ryan) Eboli Into the complex pattern of a continuing gangland war. Eboli, 61, was found sprawled on a sidewalk early Sunday in the quiet Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, far from his usual haunts in New Jersey and Man- hattan. There were five bullet holes in his face and neck. The killing was at least the 15th gangland slaying since the June 28, 1971, wounding of Jo- seph A. Colombo Sr., identified by authorities as the head of the Profaci Cosa Nostra family in Brooklyn. Included in that string of kill- ings was the Little Italy clam bar rubout of Joseph (Crazy British soldiers spur bitterness BELFAST (CP) "How would you like soldiers coming in and taking over your an angry Roman Catholic resi- dent demanded of journalists visiting one of the apartment houses commandeered by the British army along embattled Lendoon Avenue. "The place is like a pig sty from the way the soldiers eat, sleep and smoke." comalained an indignant resident, Eu'zabelh Gordon, Sunday. "All the people are very bitter." As she spoke, two soldiers of the Royal Regiment of Fusi- liers, recently returned from training exercises in Alberta and British Columbia, looked ir- ritaled but maintained their composure. Upstairs, in one of the apart- ments that would provide van- tage points in any future battles with the underground Irish Re- publican Army, three military sleeping bags were spread across the living room floor. Soldiers wilh steel helmets, riot slicks and high-velocity ri- fles kept walch over a bip stretch of the area scene of major gun fighls for much of the last week and the flashpoint neighborhood of Heliast where the recent IRA-British army ceasefire finally collapsed. WANT UPPER HAND The army took over the apart- ments in an effort to "domi- nate" Catholic scclions of Lena- doon Avenue used as sniper po- silions by IRA guerrillas. The result has bscn loud pro- tests from Ihe residents, who say they have been obliged to evacuate their homes hy Iho en- forced presence of soldiers within their family circles. Rev. .lark Filzsimmons, a Roman Catholic priest, led an exodus of persons from their West Belfast homes Sun- day to a lootball field nbout a mile away, where they set up camp. Most of Ihe menfolk re- mained guarding Iheir homes. Father Filzsimmons said the army had refused pressing re- quests to evacuate the Lenadoon Avenue area.

Mrs. Decdes displayed the hullct holes in her apartment which arc Ihe jagged legacy of the recent halllcs. Living room windows hnvo bfss thallcrcd hy tho flying lead. Ceilings, walls and closets have been ripped by gunfire and gaping holes were blown in fam- ily clothes hanging in one cor- ner of the apartment. The embittered Catholics in- sist that no IRA snipers were firing from their homes but the army suggests this kind of denial Is far from the truth. In any event, life for many residents along Lenadoon has become an intolerable hell on earth, and UK added irritant of the strengthened army presence has proved a last straw for many of the Catholics now t h r e a t e n i n g to embark on large-scale evacuation of the neighborhood. The word evacuation typifies the reaction of numerous other Belfast Catholics to the present Ulster situation. More than refugees from the city have moved south to the Irish Republic since last week. "It's a question of ordinary Irish folk helping ordinary Irish said one Catholic ex-serv- iceman, explaining the way committees in the republic have arranged emergency accommo- dation for the refugees.

Investigators concluded that Eboli was shot as he sat in a car, probably his own late- model Cadillac, then struggled out and collapsed on the side- walk. "He must have been lured over said one detective. Witnesses told police they heard shots and saw flashes near a truck that went by at the lime. The truck, apparently sto- len, was found about a block away abandoned with its engine running. Police also found a stolen car with an M-3 sub-machine-gun with a silencer in its rear scat. The gun had not been fired and detectives theorized that it had been a backup weapon. The car Eboli had been In was gone whan police arrived and they broadcast an alarm for the vehicle. In the right hand pocket of Eboli's jacket was more than in cash, mostly in bills. Despite the strong indications that Eboli had been "hit" by mob gunmen, detectives said there was no evidence that he had been feuding lately with fellow members of his Geno- vcse underworld family. :Most of the time when these fellows get in trouble with each other, it's because they're start- ing to get there was no sign that Tommy was doing said one official. CALLED UNDEItBOSS Federal authorities have iden- tified Eboli as an underboss in the Genovese family while the late Vilo Genovese himself, known as Ihe "Boss of was in prison for bankrolling a narcolics smuggling operation. After Genovese's death in prison in 1969, Eboli's poor health prevented him from gaining the (op spot and much of the family's traditional ter- ritory was siphoned off by other families.
