LEGS DIAMOND FUNERAL The underworld shuns Legs Diamond's funeral as the church bans rites. In Maspeth, NY the one-time gangster overlord, who escaped the law 23 times and gunmen's bullets on 16 occasions, is buried. The hoodlums who once hearkened to his bidding desert the bier, and pomp and gaudiness are completely missing. A plain wooden box covered with flowers, instead of the customary bronze or silver affair, encases the body. Attended only by the widow and a few sight-seers, the obsequies are performed without the benefit of clergy.
