TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 1040 CULL' IS HCTED 01)1 TO pPONE Florida City Has Liltic Use For Uncle Sam's Ex- Convict BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Flo l <l ! ] :L I ! s !^ e To ¥llic!l Capone Will Return PAGE 1 By SEA Service MIAMI, Ma., March 2fi.—U Is spring, and the winter season is over in Miami, b\tt It's going lo be a long, cold spell for Al Capone down here'In the tropics where the .'.uu shines warmly on his luxurious Palm fsland estate. Cii|jo;ie's neighbors have been coldly anxious, worrying about the day when he would move back in. Their fears were realized when they noticed unusual activity in the big Capone mansion, and his doctor in Baltimore revealed he had left the home there, where he has been undergoing treatment for paresis, and would return lo Miami. No welcome mats were readied for the notorious gang boss—in fact local officials as well as his neighbors would welcome any legal means ol' persuading Mr, Capone la go e!s "here. WARM MIAMI PLANS THE "MIAMI CHILI," There Is nothing officials can no about getting him out—but Capone will be given the "Miami chill." Of course he will be fingerprinted as an ex-felon. The community will have none of him—even his $10,000 donation to Dade County's Community Client was not accepted. If he wants a local lawyer he is apt to have a tough time finding legal lalonl to represent him—the last two attorneys he engaged collected for their services only nfler they brought suit.- Of course, Capone's neighbors, as n-ell as thp rest of Miami, are curious about the ex-gang chieftain. His white house on Palm Island, surrounded by a high stone wall and massive gate is a star attraction on sightseeing tours. The house was built in 1922 at a coal of $15.000. In 1929 the property was deeded lo Al Capone's wife. Rose. Since then, improvements to the tune of $27,400 have been added. These include higher walls, landscaping and a 30 by 60- foot, swimming pool. Back in ills heyday, Capone threw lavish parties at his estate In 1928 and 1920, when Miami had championship fights, Capone "parties for the press" drew thousands, few of whom actually represented the press.. In -the midst of his guests moved the smiling Cnpone, surrounded'; by .'bodyguards. MIAMI COPS ONCE MADE IT HOT FOR CAPONE The contrast to the present cold welcome was the hot reception Capone received when lie first arrived in this area. In 1930 Miami police took advantage of every legal opportunity to arrest the gang chief. In May, 1930, he was arrested three times on charges of vagrancy. In March, that year, Dade county deputy sheriffs picked him up on vagrancy and later charged him with perjury. An assault and bat- u-ge was filed aponc on Nov. Demonstration Club News Notes .
