Burns, 63 years old, was shot and attacked fatally, arc believed to be those of the slayer. Sheriff Otto Ray declared lait nigjit. When the bloody marks were found on an oil lamp chimney and a letter, they were thought to have been Burns's. Comparison with Burn's fingerprints yesterday by Carl Burk- hand, state police fingerprint expert, revealed that they were not those of-the dead man. The prints are believed to be too large to be those of Mrs. Minnie Burns, 58, wife of the slain man who is missing and also believed to be dead. Burns, who is said to have hoarded his money in or near his home at 4926 West Morris.street, was believed attacked by a robber in search of the hidden wealth. It is thought that a person .the Burnses trusted committed the crime and then spirited away Mrs. Burns, either dead or alive, to baffle investigators and make it appear as though Mrs. Burns committed the crime. While the theory also" is being held that the woman killed her husband and then fled to go in hiding or commit suicide, this Is discounted because the family physician. Dr. John A. Salb,*dH- clared that Mrs. Burns was suffering from dropsy and was incapable of exertion. Burns, wbo was semi-conscious when found in his blood-smeared, ransacked home by a neighbor May 22, said that he was attacked Tuesday night. May 21, but'declared he did not know who the assailant was, nor what happened to his wife. He said that the last time he saw her "she was sitting in the chair," referring tJ a rocking chair in his home. He died Monday in the Methodist Hospital. - He had been shot twice in the head with a .32 caliber revolver and beaten severely about the eyes. Burns Is thought to have been attacked from the rear without seeing his assailant. The body was taken to. Lebanon yesterday. It will be buried today in Oak Hill cemetery. • •» Major Operation. Miss Kathryn Flndllng of Windfall, daughter of Mr. an'd Mrs. Rome Flndling, entered the Methodist hospital at Indianapolis Monday and Wednesday surgeons performed a major operation for the correction of eye trouble ot long standing. The parents were at the hospital when the operation was performed' and the mother remained at the hospital with the daughter. SffilJiMi Urges the ' ficiaries Upoi Millions of Bene- Make Demand Congress. ,s APPEAL IS BROADCAST Washington, May 30. — The original champion of NRA, Hugh S. Johnson, last night took the cause of the [demolished recovery agency to the country with a radio speech asserting that huge i gains had been lost through "one explosive thunder" from the supreme court. | ' . Johnson made his address last night a few I hours after President Roosevelt had declared the reaction of the country to the court decision was paramount to Washington developments. Johnson sketched the condition of industry pfior to the Inception of NRA, an fra, he said, of cost cutting, including "~ wages, by which "the ghouls of industry survived." i With the institution of NRA, he said, a new method was applied by whtch the "chiseling 'ringe" of any industry was ^prevented from using guerilla methods to promote its business. With the invalidation of NRA, Johnson continued, price cutting began at once. Johnson appealed to what he termed the millions of "beneficiaries" of NRA to inform their congressmen j that they desire those benefits continued. "If they do not act immediatc- ly-we will see the worst orgy of wage cutting!possible," he said. Calls Co-eds Boy Crazy.

President Discusses NRA Situation With Newspaper Men. Washington, May 30. — Presi T dent, Roosevelt scrutinized the reaction of Industry and the public last night as, with scores of advisers, he strove to reduce the chaotic aftermath of NRA's destruction to an orderly plan of proced r ure. ' Breaking his silence for the first time since the supreme court killed the Blue Eagle, he told thti newspaper correspondents that far more important than what is hapf pening in Washington were the imm'ediate.consequences of the decision throughout American in r dustry. .1 On his desk, he said, were numerous assertions by various code groups and trade associations of an intention to stick by the codes until new legislation could he for,- mulated.
