Marlon Zioncheck, the "specdin" congressman from the state of Washington, spent two hours here today convincing Sheriff J. A. Russ that he had satisfactorily cleared himself of speeding charges at Alexandira, Va. The democratic congressman had stopped at the village drug store while en route to Miami with his bride. But the sheriff's wife recognized the couple, and her husband took im into custody, bheritt Huss said Zioncheck's automobile was traveling better than 50 miles an hour through town. In contrast to the disorder he has created when previously taken into custody. Zioncheck calmly put through half a dozen telephone calls to Washington, JJ. c, ana Alexandria to convince the sheriff that the speeding matter in Alex andia had been settled. The Shal- lotte speeding count wasn t pressed. Zioncheck ana his oroiae, a ior- mer Washington, D. C, stenogra pher then speeded southward.

Shackled hand and foot, Alvin Karpis. public enemy No. 1, was brought to St. Paul in an airliner chartered by G-Men today. The stammering, pasty-faced gunman, captured at New Orleans last night without a shot being fired, probably will be tried for kidnaping William namm, jr., wealthy brewer. Long delayed, the big airplane slid into the airport at n:a a. m., and roared directly into the hangar of the 109th U. S. air squadron. Newsmen as well as spectators were barred. Cell "Escape Proof" A dozen G-men from the St Paul headquarters were on guard as Karpis was transferred to a waiting automobile. Ten federal men commanded by J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the federal bu rcau of investigation, who made the arrest last night, were aboard the plane. Barely 16 hours after the capture in New Orleans, Karpis was returned to the city where allegedly he engineered two of the nation's most sensational kid- napings, those of Hamm and Ed ward G. Bremer. Ten minutes after .the airliner slid into the army hangar, Karpis was at department of justice headquarters. He will be locked in the "escape-proof" cell at county jail once occupied by Doc Barker, Tommy- Touhy Yolncy Davis, Willie Davis and others of the Bar-ker-Karpis gang. Last of Gang Karpis is the last of the Bar-ker-Karpis mob, although his recent associate, Harry Campbell, still is at large. Karpis was wearing the same clothes he had on when agents seized him late yesterday. He appeared extremely nervous and shaken. His return to St. Paul was in contrast to the last time he was here two years ago. Then the Barker-Karpis gang was in its hey-day. Today Karpis, the most hunted fugitive since the days of John Dillinger, was the central figure in the last chapter of the melodramatic saga of the mad band of maehinegun killers. Karpis was loaded into one of five automobiles provided by local agents. He was placed in the back seat between two heavily armed operatives. With two cars proceeding and two following, the cavalcade dashed to the fed- (Continued from Pue Three) JUSTICE TO TAKE STAND MONDAY IN STARTING DEFENSE Portland, Ore., May 2. Jack Bernard Justice will be the first witness in his own defense when his trial on charges of murdering W. Frank Akin, special investigator for Governor Julius Meier, is resumed Monday, defense attorneys announced today. The prosecution completed its case yesterday, but failed to develop pre-trial assertions of prosecutors that a woman who as-sertcdly had been defrauded by Akin really paid for Akin's death. The state ignored this phase of the case, except for brief reference to it in the testimony of Larry Paulos, ex-convict, and his wife Peggy, and concentrated on trying to prove that Justice hired Leo Hall, already under death sentence from the mass murder of six persons in a Bremerton.

Counties are to pay their 25 per cent share of old age pensions by master warrants to the state relief com mittee, which is charged with the distribution of federal, state and county funds for assistance of the aged, the state . supreme court ruled today. The decision, by Justice Bailey, allowed a peremptory writ of mandamus to Ladd & Bush bank, Salem, against Marion county for a $1122.44 warrant. The bank represented the state relief commit tee. Central Agency Favored The supreme court took origin al jurisdiction in the case to clarify provisions of the state old age Dcnsion law. The county contended it had to pay its own pensioners directly "It cannot bo questioned that distribution of old age funds can be managed much more effectively uniformly and with less expense through one central agency than through 36 independent agencies, whether the latter attempt to make disbursements independently or in conjunction with the central state agency, the court said.

Parker, jr., in torturing a spur. ious confession of the Lindbergh kidnaping from Paul H.

Assistant District Attorney Frances Madden confirmed Geo- Bhan's statement. "Bleefeld told us that talked to him about Wendel as a Lindbergh kidnaping -suspect last January," Madden said. "He quoted the offi-eial as saying that 'I have been out in complete charge of the Lindbergh investigation by Governor Hoffman (of New Jersey); I have had a suspect under observation for four years; his name is Paul Wendel." Bleefeld's arrest left only young Parker a fugitive among six men indicted on Wendcl's charges that he was kidnaped and compelled to sign a statement that he kidnaped and murdered Charles A. Lindbergh jr. Sol. Marcus. Trenton bookmaker indicted Thursday as an accessor yto the Wendel kidnaping after the fact, waived extradition and was brought to New York last night.

But "Pop," in hurt amazement, told a Chicago judge that he just had the old Saturday night urge during a party, climbed into the tub, nnd then couldn't reach between his shoulders. So Mrs. Farber came to the rescue and Farber sued for $25,000. Above are Parker and Mrs "arbcr, at fislit Farber.
