To Insane Ward at Lansing so That His Keeping Made Be Sure .Indications that the State of KaiiSas wopid move to put Albert MJirek away where he will be safely supervised were apparent today in the comment of officials here. It was declared that Marek is giving the authorities so much trouble in handling him that an application fo| rthe apfioiotment of a commission to examine the prisoner for sanity is to be made. If Marek should be found to Tie unbalanced mentally, it would mean his commitment to the ward for tho insane at the state.peni­ tentiary. It might be that he could be arraigned and tried tor Crimea alleged to have been committed if he siiould recover his reason. I • .Marek, it will he recalled, is the mail who was arrested here as a suspect in Santa Fe holdup caaos. He gained morei than casual attention by going on a hunger strike while In jaU ften- and later 4>e- came irlolent •mhea .officers. at- tcmptcd to remove blip to Garnett where he was accuaedof the robbery of the Santa Fe station.

Tho' prisoner was sent to the Frauklin county jail at Ottawa because the Garnett jail was regarded as unsafe for, a man of Marek's type. It has been the opinioii of officers that!.Marek would be connected with the Santa Fe robbery and killing of operator '• McCulIough here on the night of March 22 and authorities insist that' warrants may he issued.

WASHINGTON, June 7.-^Presl- dent Coolidge In issuing his order authorizing the employment of State officers as. prbhibitioh en- forecement agenfs. was "entirely within his rigl ts and guilty of no infraction . of the constitutioiti or the law, either express or implied^' said the majority report of a judiciary subcommittee submitted todayj to the entire committee. In ; studying the question, the sub-fcpmmittce acted under a senate ' resolution ^of which Senator King, Democrat, .Utah, was the author. That senator, as one of the sub-committee of five, submitted minority views holding tiiat the order was unauthorized aiid improper. The sub-committee majority held that what the president'issued was not an "order," but a mere expression of policy. It stated in its report that the order really : "ac- conlplishes nothing" since the attorney general and the Interna) revenue commissioner had authority to make such appointments before the order was issued. Refraining from expressing any opinion as to the- wisdom of the policy of so employing state officers, the sub-committee majority said: "Nothing said herein Is to be construced as an expression of either iapproval or disapproval of the prillcy evidenced by the notice of order of the president, which has been the subject of discussion. " ' The committee has deemed Itself restricted in the inquiry by the resolution, under which it has proceeded to the sole question of whether the president acted in the premises without authority or in violation of the constitution or any of Us. provisions, express or Implied."; On the latter proposition, supreme court decisions and executive orders of similar import t-i that issued by President Coolidge were . cited to support the conclusion of the. suh-committee.
