ARKANSAS. WKDNKSDAY, MARCH 7, 103-1 SINGLE '•• COMES FIVE CAPTURED ON LITTLE RiVER Verdict Equivalent of Life Sentence for ^Dr. Alice Wynckoop CHICAGO, Mar. 7 (UP) — Dr. Alice Lindsay Wynckoop, 03-year- old mntriarch of a prominent medical family, today faced spending the rest of her life in prison for the murder by chloroform and revolver shot of her daughter-in- law, Rheta. A criminal court Jury of younger men brought in a guilty verdict last night after less than two hours de-liberation. Its recommendation ol a 25-year sentence was the same as life imprisonment for the aged and ailing woman, whose lepcated collapses from heart dis- have interrupted her trial. There \vere yet the usual motions for a new trial to be disposed of before Judge Harry B. Miller could pronounce sentence. A hearing on these motions was placed on the court calendar for March 2-1. Verdict Comes As Shock The jury's quick verdict came as a shock to the defense forces after a day of closing arguments which verged on religions fervor. Attorneys for the defense, W. VV. and Milton Smith, were partaking of a; late supper when the jury's report of an agreement came. They were summoned to the courtroom. Fearing that the shock of a guilty verdict might be too mucn for the frail defendant, Judge Miller ordered a physician to remain at her side with a heart stimulant during the reading ol the ..verdict. As soon 'as Foreman Fred Oviatt; eldest, jurbr, : .delivered the vecdicp- there 'was a'lipple of surprise, "together with some apparent protest from the spectators despite Presiding Judgo Harry B. Miller's previous Injunction against any demonstration^ It was quickly sllllEd by bailiffs. Dr. Wynekoop, somewhat pathetic in a wheel chair, took the verdict impassively. Prosecutor Sorry Proseculor Dougherty mere 1 y shrugged when risked for comment. When Mrs. Mablc Fairclo, sister of the defendant, who had a front seat throughout most of the trial, ran up to him crying: "She's innocent. You know she's innocent," he replied: "I know in my heart that she is guilty. But- nevertheless I feel sorry for her." Bnrdine Gardner of Indianapolis, father of the slain RliL'la, clasped his hands tightly together as the jury foreman read ihe verdict. ••Twenty-five years—yes." he ,«aid "Justice has been served."

Buck and J. A. Leech were re-elected to the board I without opposition, each receiving IBS votes, and an 18-mill Nix "for current school operating ex|xmse" was voted. 185 to 2. Seventy-five ballots were cast, in [he box at the Arkansas-Missouri Power company olfice on West Main and 114 at the city hall box. A result of the vote is that, there is little prospect that the district will have available sufficient funds to meet in .full-next year's'debt maturities. Under the law proceeds of the 18-mill tax voted yesterday may' be used only for the purpose for which it was lev- led—"current, school operating expense." There wilt oe available to nieel bond obligations th» state apportionment of approximately SIS.OOO, which will be sufficient to pay current interest but will fall about $9.000 short of covering principal maturities.
