Description: 

St. Louis Post-Dispatch article discussing Estes Kefauver's Senate committee devoted to investigating interstate organized crime activity, including Kansas City's Charles Binaggio. Kefauver is reported to be interested in the immigration and citizenship records of "criminals and big-time gamblers in the search for links with the Mafia." Binaggio is reported as having being interested in the deportation of Frank Coppola, who was one of numerous organized crime figures operating out of Mexico, several of whom are suspected as being involved in his April, 1950 murder, and who were also wanted by Internal Revenue Service for income tax evasion.
