KIDNAP HIDEOUT RUMORS DROPPED Officials of Howard County Say U.S. Officers Made Probe 2 Weeks Ago. CRESCO, March 6.--The rumor that Howard county was the hideout o£ Edward G. Bremer kidnapers was circulated, investigated and dismissed as baseless two weeks ago, local officials .stated this morning when interviewed concerning belated news stories on the matter. "It seems," said one local man, "that we were just one of the several hundred communities in Iowa and neighboring states in which the gt. Paul banker was held captive for three weeks. No Supporting Facts. County Attorney Clarence Anderson told of following a flimsy clew to Lime Springs and failing in his atempt to obtain supporting facts for the rumor. Sheriff Tollof Johnson stated that while federal agents were here recently, they did not take him into their confidence. He had no information to tie Howard county to the Bremer rumors. Deputy 'Sheriff Will Owen said that he had been to Lime Springs to investigate certain telephone calls, but he felt assured that there was nothing to the rumors. Rumors Have Varied. Rumors concerning the hideout have varied. One stated that the hideout was in the town of Lime Springs and another that it was in a remote rural district near the Iowa-Minnesota line in Howard county. Conversations with prominent Lime Springs business and professional men, as well as with Howard county officials, seemed to indicate that the reported hideout was only a.myth. A thorough search indicated that all authoritative sources in the county had no facts to substantiate the hideo'ut rumor. Herbert Yourigblood (above).

EASTERN RIVERS KEEP SWELLING Snow and Ice Melting With Warm Weather Threatens Serious Floods. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Snow and ice melted by two days of summerlike temperature swelled eastern rivers to the danger point Tuesday. Some streams had left their banks and others were near flood stage. In Connecticut three children were dead and waters of rivers continued to rise. Some families in three towns had abandoned their homes and a high school was closed. Rain added to the danger. The Queens section of New York City saw streets flooded when sewers became clogged with slush. Over in New Jersey ice jams in the Passaic river and its tributaries menaced sections of Bergen county. Lowlands in upstate New York were inundated. Conditions were improving in central Pennsylvania but at Parker's Landing, 60 miles above Pittsburgh, the water was six feet deep in places and a request had been made for army bombing planes to break an Ice jam in the Allegheny river.

Clive Brook, Otto Kruger and Tullio Carmlnati form a strong supporting cast, and Dickie Moore cannot be overlooked to his characterization of Ann's child.

UP)--A report filed with the federal trade commission shows that two large companies in the Van Sweringen railroad group have defaulted on loans by J. P. Morgan and company and a group of New York bankers. There was no indication, however, that Morgan and company or any of its associates had ever called for payment of the loans or taken any steps to forecast on them. and employes with death if they failed to obey orders. One of the men mounted a marble-topped railing in the bank to stand guard while a companion forced his way into money cage and scooped up all .available currency, disdaining silver. One of the men, described as "Mouthy," jumped when the bank's burglar alarm was set off. "I'd like to know who the hell set that alarm off," he barked. "If you want to get killed, just make some move," he' repeatedly told the group which stood at bay in the lobby. Seemed In Command. He seemed to be in command of the bandits, and it was he who was described as resembling Dillinger t,y C R Clarke, president of the bank, and R. J. Dargen, teller. Other bank employes, however, were doubtful of the identification, declaring there was no resemblance between the leader and Dillinger who escaped from jail at Crown Point, Ind., last week. After abandoning their first car, four miles south of here, stealing another from a passing motorist to replace It, the gang, reports said, stole another machine from another man a short time later. They were reported finally to .have piled- into a big sedan (Lincoln, hidden south of Shindler to continue their, flight) Bank officials declined to estimate the amount of the loot, but said the Joss was covered by insurance.

William Langer of North Dakota came here today to attend a state indorsement convention of the Nonpartisan league, expecting his arrest to follow his removal as head of state relief activities, but virtually certain of being nominated for re-election. Nonpartisans favorable to the administration and an anti-Langer faction of that group held separate caucuses last night to determine their course of action today. The anti-administration faction of the Nonpartisan league which is one branch of the republican party L! North Dakota, debated whether to attend or ignore the convention, in which an overwhelming number of delegates instructed to support the governor will be seated. Governor Langer yesterday expressed his expectation of arrest in a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ickes, characterizing the order for his ouster as "purely a desperate attempt to sway 141 delegates to a political convention." He denied any state employe or relief worker had been forced to contribute to the support of an administration newspaper, an allegation understood to have contributed to his removal as head of the federal relief agencies in tlie state. He indicated his desire for a grand jury investigation. The Langer faction at its caucus discussed a slate of candidates to replace six states officials who will be denied renomination because of repudiation of the administration.

McCormick, editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune. Cause of the fire was undetermined. Of Paul Muni's new starring vehicle, "Hi Nellie," one newspaper critic says: "A movie in which a newspaper editor is depicted as a hero, enterprising journalist, conscientious citizen--think of that! Something new in the world! 'High Nellie,' with Paul Muni, is a creation which tells a press yarn without suggesting that the newspaper publisher is a degenerate, that the editor is a blackmailer, that reporters hound people or steal pictures or even swipe the sheriff's cigars. There is no scene of a drunken city slicker bathing in bath tub gin, reporters do not start a run on the county bank, the wife of the defaulting cashier is not so shocked by photographers that she aborts her child, and the city ditor does not talk out of the left corner of his mouth. Great reform, especially on the Warner Brothers' lot! And believe it or not, Mr. Ripley, the picture is a box-office success in New York!" This picture, with Glenda Farrell and Ned Sparks heading the supporting cast, plays for three days starting Wednesday at the Palace.
