(AD Mrs. Elbert If. Gary, widow of th steel magnate, died this morning at her Fifth avenue residence after prolonged Illness. Mrs. Gary, the former Emma.

Townsend, was tha second wife of the steel man, whom she married In 1905, three years after the death of hi first wife. At the time of their marriage, hm had been Identified with the United States Steel corporation for four years. Mrs. Gary's most role was as hostess at th famous dinners she and her hus band gave when he wa at th peak of his career. After his death in 1327, she livM quietly In their Jericho, Lon Island, home and In an upper Fifth avenue apartment.

She was a meticulous house keeper. Her servants were carefully checked In and out of the building; and every morning1 a report on their movements "was slipped under her door. One reason for such care wa th great value of the furnishings and art treasures in their home. Th Gary gold dinner service alone wa reputed to be worth $500,000. They also owned a less valuable but larger silver service.

Mr. and Mrs. Gary had no children, although Mr. Gary had two daughters, Mrs. Gertrude Gary Sut-cliffe and Mrs.

Bertha Gary Campbell, by his first wife. In his will Mr. Gary gave some advice to his wife and daughters about handling the huge fortune that he left them virtually intact. He advised them not to sign a bond for any other person, to take loans on nothing but first class security, to avoid untried investments, and to reject any investment advice about which they were- in doubt. In the apartment building where Mrs.

Gary spent her last few years lived many of her friends men and women who frequently had been entertained at the steel magnate's home. TWO-YEAR TERM GIVEN IN 9-YEAR-OLD SLAYING MERIDIAN, April 5 (AP) Kenneth L. Combs has been sentenced to two years imprisonment by a jury which convicted him of manslaugter in connection with the slaying nine years ago of Dr. Owen Carpenter. Combs' attorney gave notice of appeal.

It was contended by the state that Combs plotted with M. Smith to take Dr. Carpenter to a house in Clifton, Texas, and rob him. Smith was tried for murder and given a 50-year sentence but was paroled after serving only six years of his term. The defense offered by Combs was that he knew nothing of the shooting and that he bad merely driven Smith and Dr.

Carpenter to the house. He said he let them out of bis car and drove away Immediately. In support of defense contention that robbery was not the motive for thevcrime, a purported confession by Smith was offered in evidence. It said Dr. Carpenter had wronged Smith's wife and that Smith shot In self defense.

Combs said he left Texas and went to Idaho, where he assumed another name, because be did not wish to bring the stigma and expense of a trial on his family. He denied having fled from the charges brought against him. Last October. Combs surrendered to officers at Twin Falls, Idaho, as a fugitive from justice. He had lived there eight years.

Millar Watt A letter from the Texas League of Municipalities asking the city of Austin to take out membership in the organization met varying opinions from city officials at Thursday's session of the city council. "I move we table the request and save the money for hard times," said Councilman Gillis.

The annual membership fee has been raised from $50 to $250, or $125 for a six-months membership. Councilman Bartholomew suggested that the city manager investigate the advantages of membership in the league and report at the next meeting. Gillis Opposes It "I want to go on record as being opposed to spending the people's money for the printing of a magazine," Gillis answered, rising from his chair. "Too much of the taxpayers money is going here, there and everywhere." The increased fee was due to establishment of a state office in Austin by the league and the maintenance of a staff here to keep in touch with legislative sessions, it was explained by Mayor Tom Miller. Says Its Helpful City Atty.

Bouldin Rector, a former president of the league, defended the organization, saying it had been helpful to city governments in the past and that it would be more helpful in the future. "Running a city is a science, not a political proposition," Rector declared. Gillis jumped up and replied. "Yen, and you run over to San Antonio and get a company to come in here and tell us how to levy taxes when we have men who have lived here all their lives and know every foot of the property in the city." City Mgr. Morgan said plans of the league to supply all members with ordinances, information pertaining to power rates, might prove beneficial and it was decided to have him look into the advisability of taking out membership.

(UP) determination today marked a systematic vigil over highways and byways by hundreds of state, federal and local officers for Clyde Barrow and his companion, Bonnie Parker.

As the hunt entered the fourth day, latest of "authentic" tips for the suspects In the brutal slaying of E. B. "Wheeler and H. D. Murphy, state highway patrolmen, near Grapevine Sunday, caused five carloads of officers to explore the wooded Trinity river bottoms near Peeltown, a rural community 16 miles south of Kaufman.

The extensive search of the section failed to reveal whereabouts of the outlaws. a- 'Shoot to Kill' Ordered L. G. Phares, chief of the state highway patrol, arrived In Dallas from Austin and conferred immediately with Frank J. Blake, chief of the department of justice agents in this section of the state.

What plans were formulated then were not revealed by Phares. "I merely have told patrolmen throughout the state to leave no stone unturned until we have captured these two desperadoes," he said. Meanwhile, scores of highway patrolmen and officers of Kaufman, Eilis, Dallas, Tarrant and Henderson counties were under orders to "shoot to kill" if they encounter the fugitives. Travis and Harris county officers spent the night searching: side roads and known haunts of the bandit couple after Barrow and Hamilton were reported en route from Austin to Houston. Officers today believed Barrow effected a reunion with his companion-since-boyhood in crime.

Reports of the fugitives being seen in many parts of the state yesterday were frequent, but officers tracing the many rumors fail ed to contact them. Trail of the Barrow gangsters led officers to De Kalb, 20 miles east of Clarksville, extreme northeast part of the state, last night when two men and a woman believed to he the outlaw trio robbed a filling station of $40 in cash and fctir gallons of gasoline from John Hall, attendant. The hi-jackers. traveling in a black sedan with yellow wire wheels such as Barrow and his sweetheart escaped in after killing the two highway officers, sped westward on Highway 5. When last reported the car passed through Clarksville and was headed west toward Sherman.

Muddy Roads Handicap The bandits kidnaped Hall and a negro customer when they left the filling station. A few miles from De Kalb the bandits stopped and released their prisoners. Hall, while walking back to tuwn, reported their captors doubled on their trail and passed them. Officers who started pursuit turned back with reports heavy rains and muddy roads made it impossible tor them to continue the search. Most tangible of clues in the hunt was considered the report of a man who Chief of Detectives eorge E.

Pay ton at Houston said s-aw the outlaw in a car on a highway near Clinton, Bosque county, driving toward Houston, The man. whose name Peyton did not disclose, said he knew Barrow on sight. He declared the desperado was riding in a tan coupe equipped with radio and that he was accompanied by a woman and another man. Numerous other tips throughout the state were received and checked, but all failed to reveal the outlaws' hereabouts. EAST ST.

Lint claims on the contracts cover 18,274,000 pounds, -while the allowed lint is 16,298,000 pounds. This will necessitate a reduction of 1,076,000 pounds. The county committee met "Wednesday afternoon to recommend a blanket reduction.

Blank forms for adjustment of the difference were prepared for distribution among the Travis farmers signing the cotton reduction contracts.

April 5. (AP) Stocks srentraMy displayed a fairly firm undertone today although there appeared to be a lack ef stimulating news as welt as market sponsorship. Modest improvement was shown by some of the metals, oils and packing shares, but most other groups held to an extremely narrow range and the activity was somewhat under that ofthe previous session. Bonds, while fairly steady, were not in such demand as yesterday. Grains, cot.

ton and rubber were a trifle easier, but silver and copper futures improved. For-eicn exchanjrea were a bit reactionary. Shares of Armour preferred Rot up more than 2 and Pillsbury and J. C. Penney sained a point or more each.

U. S. mcltinR, American Smelting, Kenncwtt, Anaconda and Cerro De Pasco were fractionally to a point higher. Postal Telegraph preferred. Western union and International Telephone firmed.

Standard Oils of New Jersey and California and Seaboard were up a little. The rails and utilities did nothing. Such equities as American Telephone, U. S. Steel, Con-sedated Cas, Montgomery Ward and Allied Chemical were virtually unchanged.

The motors were somewhat lower. Mont of the recently fnst-moving low-priced specialties slowed down when it was retried that the stock exchange Rov-emora had Bent a Questionnaire to brokers requesting details of transactions in some of these isxues, Followen r.f the motor stocks were somewhat onfued by the announcement of Henry Ford that he would not join the other major companies in raising the prices of cars and would, if materials got too high, fabricate his own. If the De. troit manufacturer maintains this position, it was believed that competition in the automotive field would be much keener. CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, April 5.
