THE SENATE COMMERCE COMMITTEE plans to investi-
gate the infiltration of American business by organized crime,
Sen. Warren Magnuson (D-Wash.) announced yesterday.
He said the investigation will deal with air freight cargo thefts,
interstate narcotics smuggling, gambling and the movement of stolen
goods.
Involvement in legitimate business has advanced from a sideline
to "a major and integral part" of the nation's organized criminal
operations, Magnuson added.
THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION is considering tearing dow n
Pruitt-Igoe, a $36 million federal public housing project.
The project has become a high-rise hell for the poor of St. Louis,
plagued by murder, robbery, rape and vandalism.
The recommendation to level the structures and replace themj
with garden apartments and row houses in the next five years is
awaiting action by Secretary of Housing George Romney.

ADVERTISEMENTS prepared. after yesterday by all but one
of the nation's cigarette makers will list tar and nicotine content.
The U.S. Surgeon General has declared the tar and nicotine con-
tent crucial to the links between smoking and disease.
An industry agreement, signed last December after the Federal
Trade Commission had proposed requiring tar and nicotine disclosure
in advertisements, does not require comparative figures in the' ads.
The only cigarette maker which refused to sign the agreement
was American Brands, which markets Pall Mall, Tareyton and Lucky
Strike. An American spokesman declined to give a reason.
MORTGAGE SUBSIDIES to selected homeowners of low and
moderate income will be resumed, Department of Housing and
Urban Development Secretary George Romney announced yes-
terday.
Romney halted the program January 14 to, as he said, "correct
deficiencies" and "protect the public." The suspension remains in
effect for most of the country.
The resumed federal mortgage commitments include all of eleven
states, most of them midwestern and western, and nine large cities.
THE NEW YORK Patrolmen's Benevolent Association won its
suit for $100 a month parity pay increase yesterday.
tcThe 27,000 police members were also awarded $2800 a man retro-

Mayor John Lindsay said the city will appeal the decision.
Failure to settle the suit led to a six-day job action of patrolmen
last month. The decision awarding the parity money was expected
to pave the way for negotiations of new contracts with police, fire-
fighters and sanitationmen.

Cairo calls
for Israeli
pullback
By The Associated Press
Israel came under increas-
ing pressure Friday to g i v e
ground on Egypt's demand for
a partial pullback of Israeli
troops from the Suez Canal, as
concern mounted that refusal
might deadlock the Israeli
Arab peace talks.
Diplomatic sources at U.N.
headquarters in New York where
the talks are being held through
special envoy Gunnar Jarring said
the main pressure w a s coming
from France and the Soviet Un-
ion.
President Aknwar Sadat of
Egypt followed his announcement
Thursday that Egypt would ex-
tend the canal cease-fire 30 days
with a demand that Israel make a
partial pullback from the area in
return for a reopening of Suez to
world shipping.
S The extension offer -was made
on the eve of the expiration of the
six month cease-fire, which had
been set for yesterday midnight.
Sources in Jerusalem said Pre-
mier Golda Meir had ordered her
Cabinet to keep silent about Sa-
dat's proposals.
Israeli newspapers, which often
reflect official views, generally
assailed Sadat's proposals.
The independent Haaretz said
the promise to open t h e canal
blockade since the 1967 war was
a tactical move "designed to gain
sympathy in international navi-
gation circles, especially in West-
ern Europe."
l The Labor paper Omer saw the
move as a response to Soviet de-
sire to expand into the Indian
ocean.
In the Arab world, there was
mixed reaction to Egypt's new pro-
posals.
Only the governments of Libya,
Sudan and Lebanon were quick
to rally behind Cairo calling the
proposals the last chance for.

Some Lebanese papers depicted
the Egyptian proposal as a pre-
lude to an indefinite de facto ar-
mistice with Israel.

BERN, SWITZERLAND WA) -
Swiss men will decide tomorrow
whether Switzerland's women
will gain the vote.
Signs indicate that the 1.5 mil-
lion men who are eligible to vote
will approve balloting in federal
politics for the 1.9 million women.
A poll conducted by the Swiss
Institute for Public Opinion Re-
search indicates 72 per cent of
the men favor women voting,
All Swiss are equal before the
law, according to the 1848 Con-
stitution. But Switzerland ranks
with Liechtenstein and five Afri-
can and Arab countries as
among the last countries limiting,
suffrage to males.
The men will vote on a pro-
posed constitutional amendment

expressly awarding voting rights
on federal matters to both sexes.
The government has called for
approval as Parliament passed
the amendment last summer
without a dissenting vote.
Twelve years ago a similar
amendment was rejected two to
one. Since then eight of the 25
cantons and half cantons have
introduced the women's vote on
cantonal matters. Cantons are
equivalent to states.
Zurich, the most populous
state, gave women the vote last
fall.
To become law, the amend-
ment must be approved by both

majorities in more than half the
