CHICAGO, July 21-John Dillinger Sr. may be troubled financially in paying for the funeral of hia notorious son who ia credited with having shared in bank loot estimated at $500,000. Only (7.70 was found in Dillingera pockets. Although young Dillinger took hundreds of thousands of dollars from mid-West banks, he never sent any home, hia father said tonight "John never gave me any," the Indiana farmer said. "I hope he left enough to bury him. It will be an awful burden if he didn't" Before he left Mooresville upon his unpleasant mission, he had tentatively planned to have the funeral services conducted Wednesday at the home of Mrs. Audrey Hancock, John's sister, in Maywood, a suburb of Indianapolis. "Will Do Best I Can." k "I suspect John would rather it had been that way," the Indiana farmer said of his son's death. "I hope John had enough money on him to pay his funeral expenses. If he didn't it will be an awful burden but I'll do the best I can." There is a possibility Dillinger mav have left a considerable estate. Not that this will do the desperado's heirs any good. Soma three dnxen robbed bankers few trav eled to Chicago yesterday to look at his body stand ready to claim any cash the bandit may have hidden away. Thinks Cash Was Available. The man who left hia lady travel. Ing companiona a "handful of $100 bills" when he ran out on them at the "Little Bohemia" resort in Wisconsin had only $7.70 In hia pocketa when he was killed.

Frechette, when officers arrested her in Chicago two months ago. The gunman, he said Evelyn told him, was waiting outside a cafe in which she was arrested. When police arrived, he said, John drove away in a new automobile in which he was waiting. ' Tha father revealed that he had refused sn offer of $5,000 made by a wild West show for use of hia son's body for exhibition purposes three days. Criticizes Autopsy Work. McCready, who embalmed the body, criticized the work of the coroner's physician who mutilated the body and denounced it as "unusual pathology." McCready said the tongue and leaders in the throat had been removed and long slits made down the front and back. Embalming was doubly difficult, he said, because of the condition of the body and the fact that he had to work in the morgue as the thousands filed in a mad rush past the body. Once, he said, he had placed packs over the head to prepare for hypodermic injections of embalming fluid. While he turned away, the curioi. throng, anxious for souvenirs of the desperado, grabbed the packs from the head. The party returning the body will drive down United States highways No. 41 and 52 to Indianapolis, cutting down Tibbs avenue through the west part of the city and continuing to Mooresville. Hubert said he was treated rough ly by the Federal men tonight and thrown down into a chair by the men as they sought information aa to when they last saw John. The father was treated kindly. The officers then returned the two to the McCready establishment, where about fifty newspaper men and camera men were waiting for pic- turea and interviews. Hubert finally threatened to call the police to put them out after their demands became offensive to the pair. Stands Trip Well. The father, who waa ill of indiges tlon and heat exhaustion yesterday when informed that his son had been broueht down by Federal agents' gunfire In Chicago, withstood the trip well today, rne party arnvea at tne McCready establishment at 2:10 o'clock this afternoon. It was Dil linger's first trip here since 1893, when he attended tne worm s iratr. The hearse was driven past the 1934 World's Fair grounds and Dillinger remarked that it had been forty-one veara since he was in Chicago, Tears filled his eyes as he picked no a Chicago newspaper which fea tured a picture of John on a slab in the morgue.

DETROIT, Mich., July 23.-) City and atata police concentrated their forces here today in a new hunt for the remnants of John Dillinger's outlaw gang after receiving a report that an automobile believed to have been used by George (Baby Face) Nelson in fleeing from San dusky, O., was used here In a day light holdup. Michigan state police received the first report of the car leaving Sandusky which, tha Ohio authorities thought, was driven by Nelson. Three hours later a car answering the same description was used in the holdup here this afternoon of Howard Saxby, manager of a chain grocery store. Police cruisers were concentrated in the neighborhood in an effort to find the holdup car. Saxby reported It contained two men, one of whom remained at the wheel, while hia companion robbed Saxby. Evelyn Not Informed of Sweethearts Death MILAN, Mich., July 23.-(a) So far as could ba learned, Evelyn Frechette, a sweetheart ot John Dillinger, had not learned today that her desperado-lover had been slain. She is serving a two-year sentence on the Federal detention farm near here for giving aid to the fugitive, spending seven hours a day ironing in the priaon laundry. Warden J. J. Ryan aaid that, unless the Information had been transmitted by "prison grapevine," Miss Frechette had not been informed of Dillinger's death. He would not permit her to be interviewed. She was arrested in St. Paul, convicted of harboring the notorious fugitive and sentenced. False Passport Sought by Dillinger for Flight CHICAGO, July 23. Wohn Dillinger had been planning his biggest escape when Federal agents found and killed him last night, it waa re ported today. The desperado was trying to ob tain a fake passport, police were in' formed, which would have let him flee the country. Presumably, he in tended to go to South America, in view of his own ambition to retire from crime and become a rancher I there. 8 A J rww ay Star Staff neaatnpher.) Failure of Dillinger to "Disguise" Fingerprints Elates Federal Agents CHICAGO. July 23. (Hohn Dil-linger'a failure to hide hia identity by ahedding hit fingerprints elates Federal agents here. Before Dillinger's death last night, it had been reported that the desperado had had .his fingerprints "lifted" by a new surgical method supposed to make that sort of identification impossible. "His fingers had been treated," Knew Dillinger As Boy; Sees End Woman Haunted fy Eyes, Cry: "They've Cot Me at Last." CHICAGO, July 23.-W)-John Dillinger, in his stumbling fall to the alley pavement where his Ufa ebbed swiftly out last night, fell against a woman whose family had known him as Johnnie Dillinger, a bashful boy who used to call regularly to buy milk. She was Mrs. Pearl Doss, 45 years old, a widow who was pass ing the alley when government bullets cut Dillinger down. Mrs. Doss's daughter, Mra. Louis Williams, lives In Mooresville, Ind., Dillinger's home town. A son-in-law of Mrs. Doss, Ralph Shake, had recalled that Dillinger was a bashful boy who used to buy milk from the family and that he couldn't imagine that he was the same man. Going North In Lincoln Avenue. "I was going north in Lincoln avenue," Mrs. Dosa aaid, "and had juat reached tha alley near the Biograph Theater when a man atarted running down the alley. I heard four shots. The man staggered and fell against me. "As he slumped to the ground I saw his face and I recall that the thought flashed through my mind that the face resembled Dillniger's pictures. The man's eyes rolled ap-pealingly as he fell. I heard him mutter: " 'They've got me at last.' Too Stunned to Move Away. "Then ha lay quiet. I waa too stunned to move. In my work I have been close to death many times but not to such violence. Dillinger's eyes as he died will haunt me throughout life. "A moment after the shooting I saw a peroxide blond woman, dressed in white, hatless and carrying a brief case. Aa the shots rang out she screamed and dashed down the alley. It seems to me now that she must have been with Dillinger. "Before I had recovered sufficiently to move, men came running toward me from all directions, it seemed. I had a crasy thought perhaps they would blame me for the shooting. Jostled by Man and Woman. "I recall that at one time a man and a woman, in trying to run away, jostled against me. I heard the woman cry out that aha had been shot Then some one said tha dead man was Dillinger and slowly I began to realize what had happened. Then two men who said they were policemen said they wanted to talk to me. "It has been one of the most horrible experiences of my life. I tried to sleep after I got home but wasn't able to. Mop tp Blood to Sell It. "Before I left I saw some men mopping up Dillinger's blood with paper and selling the pieces for 25 cents each. "When I got home my nephew, Robert, who hadn't yet heard what had happened, began telling me about the picture he had seen. He told me that the picture reminded him very much of Dillinger. His jaw dropped in disappointment whan I told him that Dillinger was watching the picture while he waa in the theater." Deserve Thanks of Alt, Lutz Wires to Purvis Philip Luti Jr., attorney general of Indiana, who engaged with other state officials In the constant pursuit of John Dillinger before hia arrest in Tucaon. Aria., and after his es cape from the Crown Point jail, yesterday sent the- folio wins- tele gram to Melvin H. Purvis, chief of the Department of Justice bureau in Chicago: "Congratulations, friend, upon your fine work. Tou deserve the thanks of the nation." Purvis organized the chase which finally led to Dillinger's death and Mr. Luts had many contacts with the Federal agent during the investiga tion or various phases of the Dilltn ger ease. In Maywood will be the place returned here. said Melvin H. Purvis, head of the Chicago office of the Bureau of Investigation, "but the treatment had failed entirely. It reassures us that talk of a new surgical 'disguise' is just bunk. "Dillinger had apparently used acid on his finger tips. The 'deltas' snd the 'cores' were burned away. But it waa easy to make identification. One would have to cut away four layera of skin to blur his fingers past recognition." Purvis Had "Buck Fever" as He Placed Himself "on Spot" to Spring Trap Chicago Bureau Head Led Men Personally Risked Life, Reputation in Making Roundup Certain. CHICAGO. July 23. (iP) Melvin H. Purvis had the "buck fever" last night when John Dillinger walked out of the little North side theater to his death a few seconds later In an alley. Purvis, chief of the Chicago Bureau of tha Department of Investigation, admitted nervousness today, but associates and ob-ervers agreed he probably had good reason. It was Purvis and not a subordinate, who led the cordon of officers to the Biograph Theater where Dillinger was enjoying tha thrills of a gangster film. He personally placed his men and then placed him- sen "on tne spot as the finger" to point out the elusive Indiana outlaw as he emerged from the lobby. Purvis Gives Signal. Dillinger passed him as he lounged against the wall, but the gunman did not sea tha algnal which closed the net around him. It waa given by Purvia. Purvia denied that a bullet from his pistol was the first to smash Into Dillinger's body, but associates pointed out that he was closest and also that he has a reputation as a pistol shot. Slight of stature. Purvis looks even younger than his thirty years and is close-mouthed about his work even when it produces such satisfactory results as tha removal of America's No. 1 public enemy. Born in Timmonsville, S. C, of English ancestry, Purvis studied law. He is a graduate of the University of South Carolina. He became a member of the department of investigation seven and one-half years ago and came to Chicago In November, 1932. Suffers Months From Infection. Purvis has suffered for months from in Infection of the nose and another of the throat, but has taken only time enough out at various times to pay an occasional visit to hospitals. Sleep has been something to do only when there was nothing else In CALL NYE, LANGER URGES LEGISLATURE BISMARCK, N. D July 23.-W)-William Langer, North Dakota'! da-posed Governor, today asked ths special Legislature meeting at his call in defiance of Acting Governor Ola H. Olson's revocation to sub-pena Gerald P. Nye, United States senator from North Dakota for questioning regarding the senator's charges that graft existed in North Dakota state departments. Nye, who made his allegations In St. Paul (Minn.) recently, mentioned a "beer racket" and a "pardon racket." Saturday, in a "message" to the Legislature Langer asked that body to impeach him If his conviction for defrauding the ' government waa found "just and proper." Neither House Has Quorum. Neither house had a quorum as Attorney General P. O. Sathre, favorable to Langer, told legislators in an opinion that the House could meet for impeachment purposes whether the Senate met or not. The Senate has never mustered a quorum in its three sessions, and since the House was friendly to Langer,- it was expected impeachment proceedings would raault In clearing htm. Langer was removed after his recent Federal court conviction. He ia ready to take tha stump in an effort to regain hia office. Hia wife, who may be called upon to replace him at the head of the state Republican ticket if he also Is found ineligible to be a candidate, waa to accompany him. Olson haa refused to recognize the Legislature, contending it is meeting illegally, and dented all pleas that he himself call ths assemblies into emergency session, 16 MEN LEFT DEAD CHICAGO.

Agents went far afield even to Virginia and Los Angeles. Minor hoodlums were picked up frequently, dui uuunger proved elusive. Four times Federal operatives swept down on Arlington race track. As many more visits were paid to the Cubs and White Sox ball parks, to no avail. Restaurants snd all the known haunts of Dillinger were shadowed constantly. Previous Traps Fall. Associates and police said Purvis might well have had the "buck fever" last night. Many times before he had set almost certain traps for Dillinger, only to have his quarry escape. An elaborate trap in Chicago's western suourDs went awry only a few months after Purvis took charge of the Chicago office. Another failed in St. Paul on March 31. when Dil linger shot it out with Federal offi cers in an apartment buildine. An other fizzled at the Little Bohemia resort near Mercer, Wis., a few weeks later. Official howls for Purvis' "scalp" were heard after some of these es capes and it was up to him last night to see tnat it aid not happen again Gives Piercing Glance. Witnesses said that Dillinger gave him a piercing glance from the side of his yellow green eyes, but walked on. Purvia dropped hia cigar, the pre-arranged signal, and stepped in with nis men, "Buck fever" or no.

John Dillinger was a tough one not at all genteel and he Is welcome to tha two bucks he took off of Arthur Sheffield. Sheffield, who la a guest of Cin clnnatl police for tha nonce, aaid as much today. It seema that Dillinger asked Sheffield for the loan about a! year ago, when the two lived on diagonal corners in one of Dayton's best residential sections. Blond, smooth-spoken Sheffield commented today: "It wouldn't have done me much good to have refused him the two bucks. He'd probably have taken It if I hadn't offered it." Then he added, "He lust wasn't my type not genteel. He was tough, and walked with a swagger as if he wanted to impress everybody how tough he was." Sheffield, who escaped from tha Kentucky reformatory, is held here as a suspect in a bank robbery at Big Prairie, O. Hickman Arguments May Be Closed Today SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., July 23.-() Arguing for his client's life, Edwin McKenzie, defense attorney in the Millard Hickman murder trial, asserted to the jury today that the prosecution "by its own witnesses" had shown It flatly impossible for the marine engineer to have murdered Louise Jeppesen in Golden Gate park May 13. "By their own witness," the attorney declared, "they have recited screams were heard from that tunnel where a young woman was foully murdered at 4 a. m. And at that very hour, we have shown that Hickman was calling for Miss Blanche McKay at her own hotel." Arguments were unlimited In time, but Prosecutor Peter J. Mullins was expected to wind up the arguments this afternoon, demanding that Hickman be sent to the gallows for murder of ths .Utah girl. East Chicago Police Who Gave Tip Satisfied; Comrades Deaths Avenged Two Detectives Slated to Take Dillinger Alive, But Plans Were Changed Long Search Rewarded. Spdal fo Th. IndlanapoHt Star. EAST CHICAGO, Ind., July 23. Police of this city today had avenged the deaths of three of their comrades, "slain in line of duty." They supplied the tip which led to the killing ot John Dillinger in Chicago last night, and five East Chicago officers were on hand to help "make she kill." But they are content to let Federal agents take the praise for ending the No. 1 outlaw's career. They aren't worried about disposition of the reward. They're satisfied to have brought about the death of Dillinger. Capt. Tim O'Neill, former pugilist and veteran policeman, told the story today. He was one of the five Twin City officers who helped lay last night a trap in Chicago. In Constant Search. Members of the East Chicago force have been in constant search for the gangster since Jan. 15, when he allegedly alew Officer Pat O'Malley in robbing the First National Bank Here. Martin Zarkovich, a detective sergeant, had been teaming with O'Neill in the investigation. Following a South Bend bank holdup June 30, O'Neill said, they got a tip Dillinger had a new hideout in Chicago. They got "a line" on him but weren't able to locate the hiding place. They conferred with Melvin H. Purvis, Department of Justice chief in Chicago, on Saturday. Then yesterday they received the tip that Dillinger would attend the Biograph theater in Chicago. O'Neill said. The trsp waa laid. Got John's "Breaks." Glen Stretch and Peter Sopcik, two East Chicago detectives, had been selected to take the outlaw alive ai he emerged from the theater, O'Neill said, but Dillinger's attempt to get away forced a change in plans before they could act. "It waa almply a case of us getting the breaks that usually went to John," O'Neill said. Police had all the luck, he com mented. "Our plant was about as Agency Reports $35,801,- 332 for Credit Side; Poured Out $317,247,464. WASHINGTON. July 23.-WV- Farm administration officials are lamenting that they can not spend faster the one-third of a billion dol lars paid by American consumers to finance the reduction of farm acreages In the fiscal year just ended. An audit of the organization's books released today showed collections from processing and compensat ing taxes during the year totaled $353,048,796.. Of this $317,247,464 was spent in benefit payments to farmers, removal of surpluses, and administra tive expenses, leaving &JS.80l,&M lor the credit side of the ledger. 40,000,000 Acres Retired. Of the expenditures, $228,663,676 was poured out aa rental and benefit pay ments In return for the retirement of about forty million acres from pro duction. Official figures show, however, that the administration has fallen more than $200,000,000 short of its spending schedule. The controller's office had estimated that expenditures for the fiscal year would total $542,-910,442. It figured also that tax collections would approximate $409,019,4.10. This expected tax total, plus the $.17,000,000 allocated to the AAA from NIRA funds last year, would have given the administration $446,019,450 with which to meet the more than half billion of estimated expenditures. Deficit Had Been Expected. Thus, if it had adhered to its spending schedule the administration would have ended the year with a deficit of $96,890,9fit Instead of the balance of $35,801,332. Such a deficit, if It had occurred, would not have been worth worrying about, officials said today, since they expected to run ahead of tax collections during periods of heavy benefit payments and to make up the difference during other periods. Most of the failure to spend as rapidly aa anticipated was attributed by them to unexpected delays in drafting and applying the corn-hog reduction program. $6 Paid by Cook County for Dillinger "Finis" CHICAGO, July 23.-(U.P.)-Cook county spent $6 to write a formal "finis" today on the career of John Dillinger. That was the cost of holding an inquest by a coroner's jury. The jury's formal verdict said: "We, the jurors, find that John Dillinger rame to his death from the wounds of bullets fired from a revolver or revolvers all In the hands of one or more government agents. The government agents are to he highly commended for their efficient participation in the occurrence, as shown by the fact that there was no further loss of life in the capture of a man of this type." Reads About Dillinger, Breaks Window; Is Cut AKRON, O., July 23. ()-John Dillinger may be dead but his sinister influence lingers on, to Frank Larrocco's disgust.

Every man in the vicinity of the theater was in shirt sleeves except us cops. We had to wear coats to cover our guns." Dillinger was accompanied by two women when he entered the theater and when he left it, the captain asserted. However, he would not admit that one of the women had betrayed the outlaw to officers. "A man" tipped off the police on the theater visit, O'Neill said, but he indicated he wasn't telling the full truth about that. Others fnder Surveillance. O'Neill said, police and Federal agents had hopes of arresting shortly the doctor who "lifted" Dillinger's face, and that a resort keeper in Michigan City and Cedar Lake and a saloon keeper in East Chicago were under suspicion of having har bored him at various times. Two attorneys and several "fences" also are under surveillance, he said. O'Neill never had doubted but that Dillinger killed O'Malley. The outlaw was awaiting trial for that murder when he escaped from the Crown Point jail March 3. As for the slaying of Detectives Martin O'Brien and Lloyd Mulvihill, O'Neill isn't so certain but he is positive that some members of Dillinger's mob shot them down as they sought to question an automobile load of suspects on a highway. O'Neill said ths trousers Dillinger was wearing were the ones he had been using for several months that he had managed to buy new linen when his srarments got soiled, but never had been able to negotiate safely the purchase of a new suit.
