He was barefooted and clad in overalls. He had ben ill from the intense heat and nearly fell qver a chair when he was told. "Well John is dead." he said "At last it has happened—the thiixg I have prayed and prayed would not happen. I want the body brought back here.-l ;»m so sick I can hardly talk."

J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the Bureau of Investigation, rushing to his cffice at word that the 1 desperado had been shot down, told newspapermen: 'This docs not mean the end of the Dillinger case. Anyone who ever gave .my of the Dillinger mob nny aid, or comfort or assistance wil be vigorously prosecuted." He referred to George (Baby Face) Nelson, Homer Van Meter and another gangster. Nelson, named by the Department of Justice "os the killer ot Special Agent W. Carter Buum in the Dillinger outbreak in the Wisconsin woods last April, was described by "-loover at a "rat."

Be Less Severe Substantial -Fall Upturn, Forecast by;NRA Officials WASHINGTON—(/I',-Thc NRA has been informed by its experts to '.'gam- bio' 'on a substantial fall rise an'busi- ness ami a less than nsUal slump during the remainder of the summer. Leon Henderson, chief of the Blue Eagle's Research and 'Planning Division, hold this conclusion Sunday on the basis'of'a mass of statistical, and Other data. Henderson's researches have report^ od to him that'the decline thus far this summer has been less than normal, and that there arc now numerous signs of'an upward trend In business generally. • There is no expectation, however, of. a''boom development. Henderson employs most, careful -language ' in /'his estimate of (he 'future.' He himself referred today to -his attitude -Of a 'gumble" on 'the basis, of the foest 'acts available. The 'research chief is .pdyinb espcc- al attention to what he' describes as lis "homely indicators." Ftjr instance, here has -been a gain in ,the sale' of iving room rugs, >one of> the''-first hings which housewives : like lo'.'re)lace when funds are available. ' There also has been a decline in the number of bachelors, he 'points out. n one city, for instance, the number if bachelors before the depression was 0,000. This increased to 29'.000 at the. icighl of the depression, and is now about 22.000, the expert conclusion be- ng that men with'funds are less fear- ul of marriage. «r anMhtr .ihfftg .

July 22, 1934: Shot dead by federal agents and Indianapolis police as he emerged from a neighborhood movie show on Chicigo's Northsidc. shot. The three convicts who were shot, all bank robbers and life termers.were mowed down by gunfire of guards as Hamilton, Thompson and Palmer scampered over the wall to two waiting automobiles. Whitey Walker was killed by the shots of guards whom the convicts engaged in battle. Charlie Frazier, the man who engineered the break, wns shot from the ladder with which he was scaling the wall, and was believed wounded fatally. Roy Johnson, third bank robber, was shot and hurt less seriously. H. E. George, the guard, was stun- ne'd momentarily .as a bullet creased li sscalp. He was not hurt seriously. The break occurred while the prism yard was almost deserted. All of- icials and guards not actually on duty, and practically all convicts,-were attending a ball game between the prison team and a Conroe team at the athletic field beside the walls. The escape was the first ever made 'from the death house, which is located in the center of the .'prison. In: daring and cool execution, the 'break has no parallel in the annals of. the] penitentiary. . At '4:30 p. m. an inside guard, "L'ce 'Braswell, approached the death house to feed the five inmates. Inside guards are not permitted to -carry weapons, as they come closely into contactwith the convicts,.and it would be possi- ble'for the latter on occasions to overpower-and disarm them. As Braswell approached the door, Frazier, crouched against the wall, stepped forward and thrsut the muzzle of a .45 caliber revolver against his ribs. In his other hand the convict held another .45. Frazier marched Braswell into the death house, and compelled him to unlock the cells in which Hamilton, Palmer and Thompson were held. These convicted murderers came out, and rFazier handed Hamilton his extra gun. Braswell was locked in Hamilton's cell.
