His death, at 59, apparently was due to t heart failure. Alone at his side was his third wife, former Madame Elena (Magda) Lupescu—the red-haired beauty who was his companion for 23 ye«ri before becoming his wife. A doctor, called from his home next door, and Carol's secretary arrived at his deathbed too late, it was reported. The former ruler of now Communist-controlled Romania had complained recently of heart trouble. He made his last public appearance this week at memorial Mrvices In St. George Church here for Britain's Queen Grandmother Mary. Carol, son of Queen Marie and King Ferdinand, first renounced his rights to the Romanian throne In 1925 In favor of a son born to his second wife, Princess Helen of Greece.

I want to die." A Monroe County, N. Y., deputy, with a first degree murder warrant formally charging Mc- Mnnus with the death of a Rochester college student, was expected here early this morning. The warrant, issued yesterday less than 24 hours after the body of Willinm Allen Braverman, 19, was fund in an abandoned quarry, was based on an oral confession McManus made by telephone to Monroe County authorities. To Face Judge Plans were to take McManus before a district judge in Dubuque this morning for Hie authorization of the return trip east. At Rochester, Dist. Atty. Clar- sota Is life imprisonment. The boy and his father, Mose McManus, Valley Stream, N. Y., brewery executive, met here for the fourth time yesterday. The at^ mosphere was much warmer than at three previous meetings, when Fred was cool and unwilling to talk, but the boy apparently was without hope or remorse. The father, who continued to plead with his son to accept legal aid, burst into sobs when the boy told him he wanted to die. The broken father, shocked and overwhelmed, left in tears and went to the office of Atty. Herbert Hoffman, whom he had retained to aid his son. "He was so completely broken he could hardly speak," Hoffman sold. Hoffman later announced he was withdrawing from the case. Italian Cabinet Dissolves Parliament ROME (/Pi — The Italian Cabinet dissolved both houses of Parliament today and called a general election for June 7.

Suit Filed Here Following Sale Of Shoe Store A suit claiming misrepresentation on the part of the defendant has been brought in Civil Division of Circuit Court by T. Newton Vlck against Barney Cockerell. The suit, asking judgment of $3,500, arose from sale of Vick's Shoe Store on East Main by Mr. Cockrell to Mr. Vlck. formerly of Magnolia, Ark. In his complaint, Mr. Vick states he paid $9,480 for the store and has paid all but a little less than $1,000 of that amount. He alleges that Mr. Cockerell misrepresented the worth of the store and "created an artificial air of prosperity" by giving money to third parties who appeared in the store to buy shoes while negotiations were under way. The complaint further states that Mr. Cockerell intimated that his business had been so profitable as to permit him to retire, at least temporarily. Shoes purchased at $1.60 a pair, the information alleges, were inventoried at $3.00 per pair. Mr. Vick. the information says, does not desire refund of the entire purchase price and intends to retain and operate the store. GOP POWs (Continued from Page 1) ?uess.

Hall has the announced backing of House Speaker Martin (R-Mass) Sen. Mundt (R-SD), and other prominent Republicans. How Senate Republican Leader Taft would look upon Hall was not known .publicly. But the Ohloan. who has been showing signs of getting along with the man he opposed for the presidential nomination, earlier had predicted there would be no fight over the chairmanship. Taft and the President talked over the chairmanship at a lengthy conference Thursday, but both said later no decision had been reached. Taft forces accepted without contest the first two Elsenhower- endorsed chairmen — Arthur E. Summerfield, who stepped out to become postmaster general, and Roberts. It was assumed that Taft would not interpose any objection to Hall if he saw the President wanted him. Eisenhower and Taft will have an opportunity to talk about it this afternoon. They have a golf engagement at Burning Tree Coun- ry Club. Gen. Clark Sends Easter Message TOKYO W 1 )—Oen. Mark W. Clark 0. S. and U. N.
