UPtHu-1 charges of both wilful murder and I but all agreed on ben and Tommy Vanover were convicted last night of wilful murder and their sentence fixed at life imprisonment for the slaying of Sheriff Roy Conway. The jury deliberated 47 minutes before returning a verdict of "guilty as charged." The brothers, Hubert, 23, and Tommy, 26, were indicted on ON5HAM&T0 REMEMBER WHEN YOU BUY ASPIRIN, IT'S aiding and abetting in wilful mur der. Defense counsel made no mention of an appeal, but the brothers told a newsman immediately after the trial that they would appeal. Sheriff Conway, 43, was shot and killed the night of July 28 after being lured from his home by a telephone caller who identified himself as one of the sheriff's deputies. The sheriff's widow, Mrs. Esta Conway, and her four daughters, were in the crowded courtroom when foreman Saylor Runyon, one of two Pike countians on the Jury, gave the verdict. Fiv of the jurors favored the death penalty on the first ballot on life on the sec' ond count. The brothers, wearing suits and ties in contrast with more casual dress during the three days of the trial, heard the verdict with little show of emotion. They appeared angered when talking to newsmen later. Special Judge Astor Hogg gave the jurors five instructions in his charge: Guilty of wilful murder with the death penalty. Guilty of wilful murder and aid ing and abetting in wilful murder. One brother guilty of wilful mur der, the other with aiding and abetting.

SECOND AT THE BRIDGE Phone 3-6272 Probe of Chicago Gang-Style Slaying Ordered By ROBERT GOLDENSTEIN Chicago, Sept. 27. W) A TJ. S. senate crime investigating committee stepped up its work Tuesday after a bloody challenge from Chi cago's underworld the gang-style slaying of two investigators. The committee hastened its scheduled investigation of Chicago underworld activities, setting a hearing here for Oct. 5. George S. Robinson, the committee's Chicago agent, said the group had not planned to come here until later. He said he expects the Chicago inquiry now will blossom into a full-scale investigation. The committee issued more than a dozen summonses for persons to testify. An authoritative source said they included: Jack Guyzik, John Patton, former "boy major" of Burnham; Tony Accardo alias Joe Batters, former Capone aide; the three Fischetti brothers, Charles, Rocco and Joe, cousins of Al Capone: Phil Katz and Hymie "Loudmouth" Levin. There was new evidence, meanwhile, of a possible link in the two killings. The victims, killed Monday night about four hours apart, were William J."Orury, 48, a former police lieutenant once known as "the watchdog of the loop," and Marvin J. Bas, 45, a lawyer. Luis Kutner, prominent Chicago lawyer, told newsmen today Drury telephoned Bas from Kutner's of fice Aug. 18, making an appoint ment to meet him immediately to "talk about that thing we have been working on." Kutner, who said he was Drury's lawyer, said he did not know the nature of the mat ter. Investigators surmised earlier that the slayings were not directly related. Drury, a long-time foe of big name gangsters, had offered to testify before the senate committee. Both Drury and Bas had offered information on underworld activities to John E. Babb, Republican candidate for sheriff. Babb said Bas had submitted one written report on crime to him and was preparing a second. Babb said he was to have conferred Tuesday with Drury on information the former police officer had volunteered. Drury was killed in his garage by four shotgun blasts fired through the windshield of his Cadillac sedan. The killers either lay in wait or followed his car when he drove into - dark alley to his garage. Ironically, Drury was killed while Robinson was trying to contact him to assure him he would be afforded protection. Robinson said Drury telephoned him in alarm last week, saying he learned the Miami Daily News had announced he would reveal "inter- 1 A' cj"-'""' 1 JAMES A.

Drury asked for a bodyguard. Police and state's attorney's investigators are working together to solve the killings. A heavy police guard was assigned to protect ex-Police Capt. Thomas E. Connelly, Drury's former partner. Drury and Connelly were kicked off the police force in 1947 after they refused to tell a Cook county grand jury how they dug up evidence in the 1948 gangland slaying of James Ragen, wealthy racing news service publisher. They were accused of conspiracy to bring about the,false indictment of three men as tne slayers. They blamed their plight on William Tuohy, who then was state's attorney. They said Tuohy "bulldozed" them because they once arrested Jack Guzik, reputed head of the old Capone crime syndicate's gambling operation and was trying to "railroad" them out of service. Tuohy now is a judge. They lost a court fight for reinstatement and Drury finally became a private detective. The former police lieutenant supplied editor Jack Lait of the New Tork Daily Mirror and Lee Mortimer, Mirror columnist, with Information for their book, "Chicago, Confidential." The Chicago Tribune said Lester Velie received information from Drury for a current article in Collier's magazine on Chicago underworld figures and politicians. Andrew Aitken, chief of detectives, ordered all known hoodlums picked up for questioning in the Drury slaying. 406 Frederica Street Phone 3-5318 TEMPERATURE REPORTS Washington, Sept. 27.
