JFK EXHIBIT F-604

F.B.I. electronic surveillance of Sam Giancana, in discussion with Gus Alex and Edward D. Vogel, two associates. January 31, 1962. Conversation indicates that the Chicago syndicate, insofar as is gambling activities are concerned, for all practical purposes has come to an end. primarily from the intense pressure placed upon the organization by the "G", meaning the Federal government. This fact, coupled with the fact that the state and local police have been forced to move against the syndicate, has brought Giancana et al. to the realization that for the time being "everyone is on his own", meaning that they will no longer receive support from the organization nor can anyone expect influence to be brought to bear on their behalf.
