And the capture of Harvey Bal- lsy, murderer, bank robber, kidnaper' and gunman because 1^1 victim notlciV 'h^ 1 " regular airplane : failed to pass overhead on one single day of his captivity, pioves otic* again that Hie smart- isi crook always leaves snms trace behind him. Pl.-tnc ttevtikd Hideout No crook could have foreseen the thing that trapped Bailey. O.irles' I F. Urschel. his victim, hidden In a Iffmote shack, idly noted thai IT/ane:, droned overhead each day regular times. One day he ob- f .'t-rved lhat ons did not appear. On >:is release, Urschel remembered. Federal agents found which scheduled plane had detoured on that , day. They closed In on the.circled i-eighborhood and caught Bailey isleep amid his murder tools. The smartest crooks, the most carefully-planned crimes, have almost always yielded to these hu- | nijn £lip-\ips whenever the manhunt is; persistent enough and thorough enough. No crime, per| haps, was ever more elaborate.-.' planned than the murder of Bob- I ble Franks by Nathan Leopold ;.nd Richard Loeb. for weeks these ' highly-intelligent young men had planned alibis, covered every pos! sible track, approaching their 1*?. i'ible crime -like an abstract problem in outwitting the' police.. G!.iue& Provided Clue: And then, while disposing of the , tcdy of young Franks beneath the culvert.- near' Chicago Leopold I dropped his glasses. At first they were believed-to belong to Franks, the victim. But it learned : he had -never worn . glasses. Then the .hunt began, and the glasses were traced to Loeb. When it was shown that they were spot- i less, though there had been heavy [ rains immediately before the I dime; Leopold and' Loeb were un| acne; .....' •. A most elaborate alibi, that they lad been riding -in Leopold's car lath, friends, at the"time of- the r.nurder, hid been contrived, supported by excellent- evidence. But I they had forgotten to fix the Leo- pclU chauffeur. A- simple police question . brought his testimony i that Leopold's car.had been in the f garage, all that. day. In such ele- irehtaljtbuigs,. Uien, came the col- tepse i)l one of. the -most "perfect 1 I crimes.'of. modern' times. . ' . [ W«»kn«s for Autos ,-.' .Walter McGee, ^kidnaper.of Mary I McElroy, and . Martin Durkin, five [limes a'murderer, both landed be[hind, bars because they had an ir 1 resistible desire for showy 'aulo- | mobiles. Durkin, who had she! policemen and a Department E of'Justice man in a series of wild I escapades,' always had to have a I b'g, flashy car. His metho dot gettin gthe'm nt.', I well known to police. Durkin I 'vould .walk into a garage as a cus- I tonier,' order a big new Cadillac lor .Fierce-Arrow, have It. greased. lolled and serviced .Teady to take lout; and promise to return with [the money next day. That night would break into the garage land steal the car. He hart done it I several times. Ittnyed by-Telegram Even when the murder trail was Ir-ot on his heels. Durkin could nol Iresist his-desire for a car. He tried Ithe.same game once more. When line theft was relayed to Depart- linent of Justice agents, they said [immediately. "That sounds like irkin." Picking up a hot trail the garage, they tracked him tavn. ,McQee also fell into the police noet because' he had to use some if the "hot" ransom money Irom •the McElroy ca« for a car—Just la second-hand one.

Postal Receipts a Clue 'A train \Hlidmu up the Siskyou Mountains in Oregon suddenly stopped at the far portal of a tunnel. There was an explosion. Conductor and passengers ran forward through the blackness to investigate. The door of the mail car had been blown oft* with dy- ramite. The mail clerk, engineer, fnenian and brakeman lay dead or dying from murderous bullets. An old pair of overalls lay near the wreckage of the mail car. Crumpled into the pencil pocket was an almost illegible slip, a receipt issued by the Eugene, Ore., l-ostoffice for a letter from Roy dc Autremont to his brother Vcrn. That was the overlooked key to their guilt. Police checked back and found • the brothers had "gone i nmping." The abandoned camp was 1 found within a mile of the htldup. In the nshe.5 of the dead .Ires were the remains of kitchen utensils, knives and forks, that they cad. clearly tried to destroy. But not carefully enough. Everyone of Ihem was traced to a Port- lind. hardware store where the proprietor remembered having sold them to three youtlis answering Die descriptions of the de Au- Iremonts. They were known, now. und the tale of the neglected knives and forks, foreshadowed the success of the four-year hunt which involved printing of 2,265,- uCO circulars in six languages, and extending around the .world.
