Then Dean Skeele went to his home. Officers said today that tho best cluo In their possession was the typewritten noto which told Doctor Skeele of the abduction and gave him instructions as to the ransom payments. It also threatened death to Mrs. Skeele in event of police Interference. Officers hoped to locate the typewriter. Police Theory Differs Although Mrs. Skeele believed her abductors were easterners, police still affirmed they had as an associate someone who had access to the university campus. This theory was based upon tho dean's full name, "Walter Fisher Skeele/' having: been clipped from a university information circular and pasted on tho envelope containing the ransom note. Tho noto had been tacked to the front screen door and was found after young Skeele, returning from his fruitless trip to the hospital, located his father at church and the two returned home. Tho note contained several other words which had been clipped from magazines and papers and pasted over typewritten verbiage. One was "wife" which had replaced what apparently had beon 'daughter" in the original version.

Jones of Texas appears destined to head tho Reconstruction Finance Corporation under tho Roosevelt administration. Through this giant ngency and Its billions of credit, Mr. Roosevelt Is looking for a strong hand in his plans for assisting the nation on the upward swing which ho believes will result from his "new deal." Selection of Jones for chairmanship of the board means ,tho displacement of Atlee Pomerene. Ohio Democrat. The latter'H appointment by President Hoover was blocked together with nil other nominations by this session of the Senate, This and other Kossip emanated today from the temporary Democratic national headquarters established hero at the Miami "Blltmore hotel by James *A. Farley, national chairman, during the fishing drulno of President- elect Roosevelt In southern waters. Three Mentioned Tho whirl of speculation among Democratic leaders also put William H. Woodln of New York In the cabinet as secretary of commerce, and brought out tho names of Henry L». Stevens of North Carolina, former commander of the American T-.efflon, for .secretary of war, and Archibald McNeil of Connecticut and O. Max Gardner of North Carolina for secretary of the navy. It now appears that Senators Hull- of Tennessee, Glass of Virginia, and Walsh of Montana, respectively, will fill these key positions. In this connection, reports have it that J. Bruce Kremer, national Com- mttteeman from Montana, and the Roosevelt chairman of the rules committee at the Chicago convention, will succeed Walsh as senator from Montana to team with Burton K. Wheeler of that state. Warded Dlsousted The "baby cabinet" talk brings in a wide variety of names. Bert E. Haney of Portland, Ore., Is mentioned for secretary or assistant secretary of interior; William T. Kemper of Kansas City and Justus Wardoll of San Francisco for other assistant cabinet posts. It was Wardell who battled It out with William G. McAdoo for the Senate nomination in California, nnd later burled the hatchet In tho national campaign. Woodln of New York, who is now regarded as a certainty for secretary of commerce, Is president of the j American Car and Foundry Company , nnd has beon at the elbow of Mr. i Roosevelt for the last five weeks in a discussion and study of the railroad problem. Jetnee T. Straus, New York merchantman, also Is prominently mentioned for the same office and there seems to be no doubt that the post lies between the two.
