"BUY BETTER HI AMBS" AMW DAILY TRIBUNE TIMES, A MM. IOWA WEDKEIDAY, JULY 26, 1M3. PAOBflTB Federal Forces Imaging Relentless And Successful War on Kidnapers CHICAGO <UJB)—Tb« federal ernnient's department of Justice, rapidly gaining a reputation for persistence equal to that of tbe royal aorthwest mounted and Scotland yard/ Is keeping its promise to smash kidnaping gangs. On three widely separated fronts Tuesday the department's agents gnawed Quietly at the roots of three millionaire abductions. In two of them they had captured suspects, and in one of these they bad obtained confession*. In one of the cases federal agents held Chicago^ reigning gang power— Roger Touny, leader of tbe Terrible Touhy" northwest side ga*g, and three of his henchmen. A few hours after John (Jake the Barber) Factor was freed following 12 dayi captirlty and purported payment of a 150,000 ransom, Melvln Purvis, chief of the government's investigation bureau In Chicago, announced bis department was launching the most wide- sweeping drive against kidnapers la Its history. In Washington federal operatives issued instructions for families of kidnap victims. They told them to imniedlately notify the department of justice, and j to be assured that nothing would be done to interfere with safe return of their relatives. Immediately the local agents delved Into the Factor case. On information furnisheil by police the> strongly suspected the Touhy mob. A few days lated Touhy was unwittingly captured In Elkhora, Wis., by an unarmed, rookie policeman. Heavily armed federal agenta returned Touhy j&nd bis men to Chicago. Their first move to show that they meant business was to refuse Touby his freedom on a habeas corpus writ Working with Factor, Touhy and his men were identified positively as kidnapers of Factor and William Hamm Jr., SL Paul brewer, who wag held for $50,000. Tuesday Touhy was in Milwaukee under heavy guard. Purvis said charges would be filed against him under the nejw Lindbergh kidnaping law. As success crowned operatives' efforts *in the Factbr and Hamm cases, orders were issued to redouble efforts against abductors of Charles F. Urscbel. millionaire Oklahoma oil man. Additional operative* were understood to have been sent from Washington to aid in tbe case, Altho the Drschel family ordered police to withdraw their investigation, federal agents, non-committal on their findings, quietly pursued their task. They gave no hint of their activities but were known to still be working on the case. As result of federal agents' work, she persons are under arrest in connection with the kidnaping of August mer, elderly Alton, m., bank millionaire. Categorical con-, fessions have been obtained. Less than two weeks after the banker: ill and nearly starved, was fret A on a lonely -highway at midnight, ppents discovered the farm dugout where he vas beid captive. Michael and Anna Musiala, on v.'hose farm the dugout was located. were arrested. Percy Fft«geraJ<j, also arrested, was identified by Mrs. Luer as one of the two men who seizeU her husband. Other* held were Randall Norwell, a bondsman, Norma Vaughn, and Frank Douglass. Altho It had been reported a ransom had been paid, agents said Luer was freed without surrender of funds by tbe family. "This war on kidnapers will continue until every abduction gang is wiped out," Pun-is said. "These men will learn that the federal government means business. SHKLDAHL Spw-ial t the Tribune-Times.
