1957 but moneyhungry gangsters violated the rule even at the risk of death Under heavy guard as he made his iifth appearance before the Senate investigations subcommit tee Valachi said that mob lead ers in Chicago paid their soldiers a subsidy to lay off handling narcotics A convicted killer and narcotics peddler himself Valachi said he had heard white he was in jail in Atlanta that the weekly pay ments had been raised to But Valachi said that in New York the bosses of the Cosa Nos tra mobs or families didnt make these payments to their sol diers and this caused some grumbling VHe testified that if gang mem bers in Chicago were caught deal ruled drugs out ing in narcotics after jetting the weekly payments to lay off they had no chance at all He said a couple were caught in Chicago and they paid with their lives Asked what the penalty was in the New York family bossed by Vito Genovese in which he was a lowly soldier Valachi said that if they had the evidence on you you were dead But Valachi acknowledged he had broken the rule And he said that so had some of the bosses especially Albert Anastasia He named Genovese now in jail aft er a narcotics conviction as an other boss who violated his own rule Valachi said the rule against trafficking in narcotics was put into effect for Genoveses mob in 1948 but that it did not apply to all the Cosa Nostra families until after Albert Anastasias slayine in 1957 He said the rule was put into effect in Chicago around the same time but he did not make clear whether he was talking about 1948 or 1957 Nor did he ex plain how Anastasia violated a rule that he said didnt become general until after his death Anastasia was listed in previous testimony as the boss of another New York family before he was killed not as a member of Geno veses gang Valachi said that narcotics were one of the principal moneymak ers for the mobs but the ban on dealing in them was ordered for Genoveses family after publicity and prosecutions had reached a peak He said members defied the rule because of the big profit to be made from handling narcoticsHe said that if they were arrested theyhadto stand another trial by the family after their govern
