Mystery Man Sought
I As New Kingpin of
life fe LI ■ fel*
well on hie way to becoming king
of the number* racket here ia
being sought by polioe.
Search for the man who 1*
underwriting beta now that the
"Big Three" have gone out of
business, at least temporarily, was
indicated following the arrest of
a narcotics peddler and seiaure of
a pillow slip full of unused num
bers books.
Inspector Clarence Luts, head
of the gambling and liquor squad,
was reluctant to discuss the num
bers racket triplications of the
latest arrest because of the in
terest evidenced by the special
District crime grand jury.
But he said the arrest is the
first direct evidence of a link
between narcotics peddlers and
the new numbers racket here.
Assistant United States Attor
ney Thomas A. Wad den called
at District jail yesterday to quiz
Joseph (Peter Rabbit) Smith, 34,
colored, of the 1300 block of West
Virginia avenue N.E.
Seized in Raid.
Smith was seized during a raid
on a guarded, triple-locked house
Wednesday evening. Police and
Federal agents found the numbers
books coincidental with the raid,
although they were seeking Smith
on a narcotics violation'.
Inspector Lutz said there have
been recurrent rumors that nar
cotics peddlers have entered the
numbers racket here since Em
mitt Warring, Roger (Whitetop)
Staking and Sam Beard curtailed
their operations in the face of
the new 10 per cent Federal tax
on the gross earnings of gam
blers.
Police admitted they have no
leads as to who might be backing
the numbers racket here at pres
ent. They pointed out, however,
that it is still possible to place
a numbers bet.
Police “Amazed.”
Police expressed amazement
that Smith, who was listed as
unemployed, had $891 with him
when he was arrested, and is the
’ >wner of a 1952 Buick Riviera and
two television sets, one on the first
floor and one on the second floor
of his West Virginia avenue home.
"There is nothing far-fetched
to the theory that drug addicts
would turn to the numbers busi
ness once it became wide open,”
Inspector Lutz said. "We know
that drug addicts will do anything
to get money to finance their
habit.”
Smith and Warren P. Williams,
28, colored, arrested at the same
time, were held under $10,000
bond each and their cases con*
tinued to March 12.
Meantime, United States At
torney Charles M, Irelan revealed
that narcotics or gambling indict
ments or both are expected from
the special grand jury within two
weeks,
The prosecutor told reporters In
vestigation so far lndieates a
“conspiracy pattern" in the local
narcotics racket,
He said he was particularly
pleased with the arrest of Smith,
He described Smith as being
on par with James "Jim Yellow"
Roberts, so far as drug operations
are concerned,
Earlier, Esther Wright, 99, col
ored, described as an acquaintance
of Smith, was summoned before
the grand jury, She refused to be
sworn in as a witness and was
brought before District Judge
James w. Morris, who Instructed
her that she must take the oath
and gave her time to consult an
attorney.
After consultation with Attorney
Curtis P. Mitchell, she returned
to the grand jury room, where she
remained for about 15 minutes.
Mr. Irelan said she would be re
called later.
The grand jury questioned a
number of other witnesses yester
day including Government under
cover men. The panel was received
at the end of yesterday’s session
and will resume its investigation
on Monday.
Democratic Party Pledge
Ruled Invalid in Alabama
By tha Associated Brats
MONTGOMERY. Ala., Feb. 29.
—The Alabama Supreme Court
ruled today that candidates for
presidential elector can run in the
Democratic primary without prom
ising to support the national party
1 nominee.
In a 5-2 decision, the court held
unconstitutional a party loyalty
| pledge adopted last month by the
State Democratic Executive Com
mittee. The ruling came one day
i ahead of the qualifying deadline
! for candidates entering the May 6
primary.
Unless overruled by the Federal
courts, the decision opens the Way
'for a possible repetition of the
1948 revolt which cost President
Truman Alabama's 11 electoral
votes. State Party Chairman Ben
Ray has not said whether he will
appeal.
