Meantime it circled about the spot, maintaining radio communication and directing the rescuing craft. Just-an hour later, a few minutes before the light cruiser Raleigh, funnels belching smoke and under forced draft arrived, the BranHenburger plane plunged into the sea.

Lawliorn, who confessed making three trips to the Rickard farm arid stealing chickens, stated that oii each occasion Roush accompanied him and not only that but suggested the thefts. Lawhorn told the route they took to reach ! the farm, of cutting through woods and fields and of carrying tho chickens back and placing; them in Roush's poultry yard. He described the sale of fowls at the Fear-Campbell place in Tipton and at the R. H. Lett. & Son store and stated that Roush received half of the~~money from the salq of nine of the fowls and that he [retained all received from the said of the first four. Lawliorn also detailed their stealing! chickens at the farm of Williamj Charles and at the St. Joseph's Academy and of using Roush's; poultry yard on Wabash avenue as a hiding place. Chickens were not sold as soon as stolen, the practice helng to wait several days.
