Just the kind I do play!" Harry Carey, star of Hunt Stromberg's production .,of "The Night Hawk," at the Strand theatre tonight, thus achieves another originality. He's about the only star found to date who is content with the type of stories he enacts. "Some people may claim that the public is fed up on Western pictures But did you ever notice the expressions of audiences as they watch an exciting chase on horseback, a clever bit of gun play, or a striking bit of heroism in one of these productions? They're proof of the contrary." Carey's work in "The Night Hawk" is proof that he enjoyed his role in it. Hfr presents its drama and its melodrama with a new enthusiasm which should make it the best Carey feature ever released. A Sunshine comedy will complete the program. • WILLIAM S.

And we are also indebted to W. J. Olenhouse and Joe CHICAGO, June 7—Both state and defense in the trial'of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, confessed slayers of 14 year old Robert Franks, today were digging trenches from which they are to stage the greatest legal battle } in Chicago's criminal history. While state's Attorney Robert E. Crow t . and his battery of aides were preparing two ','air tight" cases against the two young intellectuals —one a charge of murder, the other of kidnapping for ransoms-parents of the two boys made a strong bid j for public sympathy. Should Leopold and Loeb be ec- quitted of the murder charge, "or even b t . found insane" the state will immediately demand a new trial on the kidnapping indictment, it was said at Crowe's office. Both charges carry death penalties. A brief statement, the first official word from the defense was made public last night by fathers of the two boys. The statement was issued, it was believed as a defense against public- opinion throughout Chicago, which has been keenly bitter toward the two millionaires' sons who, "just for the fun of it" they said, murdered young Franks. A cynical belief that the boys would escape a death sentence because of the millions spent initheir defense has added to the sentiment against Leopold and Loeb. The fathers' joint statoinet. given out at the office of their attorney, denied that huge sums would he spent, for the defense, "either for legal or I m«-dical talent." It gave a clear; indication that [he defense would be built around a plan that their t;oiis were insane. The statement follows: "In view of the many statements J that large sums'of money will be used in the defense of Nathan F. Leopold Jr. and Richard A. Loeb, the families of the accused boys desire to say that they ha\v lived in Chicago for more than fifty years and the public can judge whether they have conducted themselves in their relations with this comunity in such aj way as to earn a standing as truthful, decent, law-abiding citizens, conscious of their duties and responsibilities to the comunity in which they live. "They have not the slightest inclination or intention to use their means to stage an unsightly legal battle with an elaborate array of coun sel and an army of high priced alienists in an attempt to defeat justice. Only such defense as that to which every human being is entitled will be ' provided for their sons. "Assuming that the facts in this case are substantially as published, then the only proceeding they favor is simple, solemn investigation under the law touching the mental responsibility of their accused sons. "They emphatically state that no counsel for the accused boys will be retained, other than the lawyers now represented them with the possible, but not probable, retention of one additional lawyer. There will be no large sums of money spent either for legal or medical, talent. "The fees to be paid the medical experts will be only such fees as are ordinary and usual for similar testimony. The lawyers representing the accused boys have agreed that the amount of their fees shall be determined by a committee composed of the officers of the Chicago Bar Association. If the accused boys are found by the jury to be not mentally responsible their families, in accordance with their conscious duties toward the comunity, agree that the public must be fully protected from any future menace of these boys. "In no event will the families ot the accused boys use money in any attempt to defeat justice. Signed Nathan Leopold Sr. and Albert H. Loeb. WASHINGTON'.
