It 'W*3 intensified last njght by thc •discovery of the body of G. D Crook, retired railroad man and owner 'of the cabin. Crook's body *-sHot completely thiough by a •rrtgtt JiowerecJ rifle — was found crammed in a shallbw grave some 800 yards from Ihe enbm. Officers theome that Crook was ahot when h6 sUrprisea the killer near an abandoned storm cellar which was being Used as • an underground hideout. They found papers in the hideout on Which they are basing their identification bt the killer. While the hunted man has been living in the colnfmtnlty lor some two \yeeks, only one person in the community has ever seen him. , This man, a veteran named Kenneth Arno, said the nian came to his ifarm home sdvei-61 days ago flind; asked for a drink, ot water.

With Justice Charles C. Wine on the bench for the first time,,, the court reconvened today after its summer recess and took under submission seven cases, all appeals from convictions on criminal charges. Thc court already had Washington, Sept- 27. —(UP) — J. Edgar Hoover's FBI is badly caught in the middle of the po- lilical dispute about fellow clrav- ellers and Communists in government jobs. Republican candidates and the, Ucpubliean Congress are lambast- ms the , administration. They charge that Presidents Roosevelt nnd Truman failed to net against Commies on the federal, payroll. The administration said that nosey Republicans ore interfering with efforts to trap and convict subversive employes. President Truman said: "He'd herrings!" A lot. of people arc beginning to wonder what thc FBI has been 'doing all this time. They are asking each other why the FBI failed to do something about conditions alleged by Republican invesliga- I tors. The overall answer to the ques- 'ions now being raised by thc man in the street is that the FBI had neither authority nor responsibility. The FBI is purely an investigating agency. It docs not ostab- li::h policy or initiate prosecutions. Tt has no power to cause the dismissal or transfer of a federal employe. The responsibility of the FBI merely is to submit reports of its j investigators lo thc proper authorities through thc civil service commission, as provided in thc loyalty piogram. Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., claims his committce'-s recent investigation of a suspect government employe named William Remington was blocked by Presi- r !'-nt Truman's order forbidding disclosure of loyalty investigation reports. Government officials familiar with the case said the FBI had reported its information on Remington all over Washington. Reports went to the White House, Attorney General Tom C. Clark, the Civl Service Commission, Navy Department and Commerce Department. But Hoover has no authority to tell Congress what his agents di'd about suspected federal employes. The FBI is part of the Justice Department and Hoover is subordinate to thc attorney general. The attorney general frequently has ruled that FBI files arc confidential and are not available to a congressional committee. It is recalled that under similar circumstances some years ago, the late FDR instructed Hoover to respond cordially to a House committee's request to testify in an investigation of the Federal Communications Commission. But Hoover also was instructed by Mr. Roosevelt to decline politely to answer questions based upon contents of FBI files. A lot of citizens are asking why GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Sepl. 27 — i/p>— A-sharp closing rally today sent deferred wheat prices to the day's ,high on the board of trade. The advance, scored in the last few minutes nf trading, was around 2 cents a bushel. The July contract made the best advance. There was some buying, of May and July wheat by traders who believe those deliveries w.ill : gain on the December' contract. '.-':', December corn was: under.pres- sure most of the •'session.:. SelliBg' was induced largely by a weaker cash market, which was off ii to : 10. cents a bushel. : The trade continued to receive reports of excellent corn and soybeans prospects in Illinois. At the finish wheat was 1-8. to 3 5-8 higher than Saturday's .close, December $2.23 3-0-1-4. Corn was 3-8 to I 5-8 lower, December $1.35 7-8-36. Oats were 14 higher to 14 lower, December 72 3-4-7-8.

That my husband, as a student, had been arrested and kept in prison by the White Russian army of General Denikin for refusing to join the war against the Reds in the early period of the revolution. That eighteen. years later my husband, then a teacher of mathematics with non-political interests, was seized by the NKVD and sent :o his doom.

Father wanted me to become a teacher, and I gave him my promise when I was still in pigtails. . The famous Dorietz Basin, where I was born and raised, was then in its boom days. This part of the country boasted both great agricultural and mineral wealth, espe cially coal deposits. The villages had mushroomed into great bee hives. Industrial settlements had sprung up everywhere almost overnight. Food was plentiful and cheap. Whatever misery and poverty existed in the northern and western provinces of the vast empire, here, In thc southeastern corner of Russia, want was tin mown. Life was gay. There was ;oil, but there was also song. Thrifty peasants and skilled work ers could afford to give their chil dren no only a primary, but even a higher education. My father sent me to Mazuren ko's High School for Girls, a private school in which thc tuition was 85 rubles (roughly 43 dollars) a year. Kamenskaya, then a prospering community, also had a public high school where the tuition was 20 rubles (10 dollars) less. But in the state school thc girls wire brown uniforms. I was a good scholar, and graduated in 191.4 when I was under eighteen. I was proficient in Gorman and poor in French. My special interest was botany. My father had a sister in the capital •who was married to a Frenchman. His name was Arbeau, and he was a teacher of French. There were many such in Russia in those days. I remember the Arbeaus visiting us. Later they left Russia with I their children and moved to France. For some time my father heard from his sitcr. Then we lost track of her. I was the third girl. My elder sister. Maria, was married to a v/ell-to-do engineer, a certain Loshakov, and lived in Batum, on the Black Sea in the Caucasus. Her nisband had soda works there.

"I'll never leave England, for I love it," she wrote home. Although widowed and childless, she would not return to Russia except as a tourist, but the Soviet Embassy refused her a visitor's visa Some months after I graduated from high school, I obtained the post of a grade school teacher in a nearby village, not far from the flourishing city of Slavyansk which then had about 30,000 inhabitants. My salary ranged as high as 35 rubles (13 dollars) a month. It was during the . first I met 'my future in that village, world war, that husband. One of the respected members of the community was a peasant named flikita Kasenkin. According to the classification later made by the Bolsheviks, Nikita was a serednyak — a farmer of the middle class.

Demyan was two and a half years older than I. His studies were interrupted when he was already a senior by a call to military service. He was drafted into the Czar's army. While at the front fighting the Germans, he was commissioned an officer. He had never attended a military school of following tregular army career. Demyan fell in love with me, during one of his trips home on leave, and I with him. I was proud of the distinction he had won in defense of the country. But because Demyan had answered the call to duty and attained the rank of lieutenant in the Czarisl service, he was a marked man the rest' of his days.

INSTALLMENT 2 By OKSANA S. KASENKINA (Edited by Isaac Don Le.vine). The flood of events which led to my leap from the window of the Soviet consulate in New York had its origin in the days of my youth and in the fate of the man I fell in love with. Back of my decision not to return to Soviet Russia was the vindictive manner in which my son, an only child, had been consigned to his death at the front by the Red Army. Back of that cold-blooded act was the way my innocent husband had been sent to his doom in the great purge eleven years ago. Back of that killing, in turn, was his military service record in the first world war when he was my fiance. And forging this chain of hapless circumstances was the "great crime" 1 had committed in my effort to go abroad when I concealed from the Soviet authorities in Moscow how my husband bad niet his death in our home town in the Ukraine. Before I recount the climax of my story, I must therefore go jback to my beginnings on the pas- Horal steppes of the Done/, in the i-soulh of Russia. 1 was one of seven sisters, and Ithere were no boys in Ihc family. iMy father, Stepan Burakov, was 1 a master mechanic at the locomotive works near Kamenskaya, on |the Souheastern Railroad running I from Moscow to the Caucasus.
