Nuevo Laredo Mexican Mafia's Narcotic Battle THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 7, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 6 Mexican mobsters are in the midst of a brutal narcot- ics war in this border city, spreading blood and violence among themselves even as un- suspecting tourists swarm the streets as usual. Machineguti fire has blazed countless times over the past year and a half. Gangsters have dumped bod- ies along highways or in the Rio Grande, spray,<1 homes, cars and even a Mexican news- paper building with bullets. At least five Nuevo Laredo lawmen and three Mexican cus- toms officers have been slain. In one instance gunmen stole into the home of a sleeping family and asked a little girl to identify her father. Then they riddled him with more than 15 bullets as she watched in ter- ror. Police suspected hired out- of-town gunmen handled the ex- ecution. "People see the movie, 'The Godfather,' and they think there's a lot of killing in it," said Rigoberto Maldonado, owner of Nuevo Laredo's El ...

MAMA From Page C Hushes said. "We've busted clergymen, doctors and lawyers smuggling marijuana." Such activities require organ- ization, the agent noted, but he doesn't believe the so-called East Coast Mafia is liehind it. "We see nice Johnny with a gun in his (jelt, money set aside for attorney's fees, a radio sit— tint' on the far seat — this is organized crime," Hughes sput- tered. "You don't have to have guys eating spaghetti and <ar- rying violin cases around to have organized 'rime." Marijuana [packaging oper- ations and warehouses for stor- age 'an be found in the Nuevo Laredo area, Customs agents said.

> v A* 1. v it i l' THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 13 French Caveman Ends Isolation French scientist Michel Silfre, who returned to the world Tuesday after more than six months of life alone in a <ave, took stock today of all he had been missing. Not just his pretty 20-year-old wife Nathalie, but other things— like hearing noises. Soon after his descent into Midnight Cave on Feb. 14, San Valentine, his phonograph broke and from then on he fciced utter silence. He could have no radio be- cause that would give him the sense of time. In some ways, he said, he found that liarder to take than the utter loneliness, the choking dust and decalci- fied limestone which stuck in his throat, his dreary menu of frozen food and the lack of a cheering glass of wine. And so when a helicopter sud- denly hovered overhead within minutes of his exit from the cave his fiice lit up with a hap- py smile. "That noise is nice," he said. The 33-year-old scientist went l)elow his...

PEAVY, M.D., Commissioner of Health Ask the first 100 people you meet what their favorite sport is and chances are good that at least 70 will say swimming. Even golf and fishing have taken back seats as snort choices, a recent nationwide survey shows. Thousands of new pools will be constructed this year throughout the nation. In Texas at this moment well over 50,000 pools are attracting swimmers like bees to a flower. Tills all to the good, because swimming lends itself to social adjustment. It teaches coordi- nation and builds stamina and character. A child who over- comes fear of water has learned courage. But there are also elements of risk. This accelerated inter- est in swimming creates haz- ards to life and limb, and dan- gers of disease transmission. That's why the State Health De- partment conducts courses to teach pool operators the ...

The Arabs killed two Israelis when they first invaded their quarters in the Olympic village at dawn Tuesday and took nine other members of the team hostage. Five hours later Brun- dage suspended the late after- noon and evening sports events. After an ambush of the ter- rorists Inckfired and the Arabs killed the nine hostages, the IOC said it would meet after the memorial service and de- cide whether to terminate the games for the first time in modern Olympic history. Five days of events remain. Willi Daume, the West Ger- man chairman of the organ- izing committee Tor the 1972 Ol- ympiad and a vice president ol the IOC, commented; 'it will be difficult for me to recom- mend that the games be contin- ued."

STATE THURSDAY^ SEPTEMBER 7, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 16 AUSTIN, Tex. — Gov. Pres- ton Smith Is convincing high state officials and legislators he is serious about calling a spe- cial legislative session on in- surance reform after mid-Sep- tember. Smith himself revived specu- lation at a news conference last week when he said odds favor such a session sometime be- fore the general election No- vember 7. The Governor told newsmen legislative leaders had indi- cated they will cooperate with him. He included Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes among the latter. "I believe he is giving real serious consideration to calling a session," said Barnes. "He really wants to have one." Smith made clear there is nothing definite yet about his plans, and he would still want to make sure a session would be productive before he sum- mons lawmakers. Establishment of a competi- tive insurance rate system for all lines of insurance would be his top objective, Smith said. He added he "probably" would seek Insu...

THURSDAY", SEPTEMBER 7, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 20 I I W'- ' Rattlers open season with Mission Eagles The Rio Grande City Rattlers open their season with a clash on the Mission Eagle Field this Friday evening with kick-off time slated for 8 p.m. The Rattlers under the helm of Head Coach Eliseo Villarreal appear to be ready for the battle with the Eagles comming from a good scrimmage with Port Isabel last week. The Rattlers had worked to a score- less tie with Aransas Pass but bounced last week to defeat the Tarpons on the Tarpons home field. The Rattlers go into schoolboy play behind the ex- perience of field general Jose Leon Garcia and the full back running of Roy Larralde with Ramiro Alcazar running off one of the halfbacks. Alcazar has shown great promise in the slot for Villarreal's charges.
