f AGE SK SLrrHByLLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ri ought Wave of Kidnap- ing;; and Authority lo Comhal Them WASHINGTON, .-Feb. 13 10P)~ The Ltmlbereh kidnaping was H blow—and a boon—to thf ilepurt- mem of. justice. The Wow was a wave of kid- naping.. The lioon.was that congress p9E,-cil the 'Lindbergh Law" which eave the eovn-ninc-ni. broad jurisdiction in the fight, against HdnnplnPw and has lesulted lo date in the. solution: of 31 cases. Tlie child ; of liie Uii<lbf>rgli.i' was stolen March" 1, 1932, On June ii of the samo: year nn aroused congress made • kidnaping a federal offense, when It involved use of mulls, or transporlatton ol the victim across state lines. . Since then the division of ih- vesligationi deparlmenl of jusllce. ha.s participated In the solutions ol 31 kidnapings. To quolc J. Ed- Bar Hoover, chief of tlie division: "All ol the 31 ciujiis have been rxilvcd. "Seventy fo\ir persons have 1 been convicted and "22 arc now In custody awaiting trial. Seventy four pel-sons have; received sentence.? totalling 1,186 years, )l months and two days; 10 life sentences, two death sentences, 30 years huspeuded sentences and 20 years probation; two, individuals were lynched .while awaiting trial, three 1 committed suicide and two .were murdered by Ihclr companions. And . kltlnaplngs seem to lie .decreasing in number." Two Still at Large, Only two suspected kidnapers are .still at large. One is Thomas H. Robinson, jr., a young man who.masquerades as a woman and is accused of kidnaping Mrs. Berry .V. Sloll In Louisville, Ky. The olher Is Alvin Karpls, Oklahoma fugitive 'sought, as a participant in. the kidnaping of Edward O. Bremcr Minneapolis bicwcr and hanker. Allot Robinson's .associates have lA-i'n auesled Most of KarpLs' accomplices are, dead, shot by federal cgenls The lest, led by Arthur. (Doc) Barker, are behind tars, awaiting trial. The Lindbergh law provides the "death penaity in aggravated cases of--kidnaping and in others "Im- prK-omuent $01 such icini of years as the comt, In Its discretion, shall 'determine." Kidnapers who use thCs mails for transmission of., ransom notes imd (lie like )»Jiy J ,l>e prosecuted autmnatlcally .under the federa law. -Those • who transport their victims across state lines also coma under juilsdlctlon of the law. The act provides that in the absence "of the return of the person kidnaped during n. three-day peilod, the presumption arises that the victim has been trans- IKirted "in Interstate or foreign commerce." . Low Meets Ciiulknce ;Beca«se of the prominence of the •'Lindberghs,. thp. manner In which their baby was kidnaped, and the tragic,.outcome, the case presented a challenge of national Impovtonce to the forces of law and order. \Vhcn it became apparent, that no : immediate solution was forthcoming, crime seemed to boom. Kidnapings and other acts of violence ,;became legion, The department '• of Justice began to cooperate actively with the New York City police department. According lo.. Attorney General Homer/S. Ciimiuings: ' . • "The result obtained in the Lindbergh case is due (o no master detective of fiction working on an ;inltiltlon or sporadic inspiration, but- to. a practical arraugc- i nient for cooperation, in which the- trained experts, methodical, patient and attentive to the smallest details hung onlo the trail un- III the end came In sight." Thousands of lelters from all ovei the United States and from many countries were- written, bearing on .the Lindbergh case. Most of. them were penned by cranks, but the division of Investigation inquired • into every one.-~The division e\cn prepared 50,000 index- cards' as "a matter of mere routine, to organize the Lindbergh files on a chronological basis.
