FOR YOUR CHILD SEE PAGE 18 THREE HELD IN DEATH OF CHILD Father's Bail of $100,000 tjighest Ever Set for Assault Charge. NEW YORK, W_Bail of $100,000, highest in. the history of Queens county for a charge of assault with intent to kill, was set T h u r s d a y in felony court fot George Morvan, 24, father of 4 year old Joan Morvan, who died Monday after a criminal attack. Mrs. Norma Gatto, Morvan's housekeeper, \vas held in the same amount on a similar charge as police took her 26"year old brother', Howard Magnussen, confessed attacker of the child, to Huntington, Long Island, for arraignment on a charge of murder. Principals in one of the most sordid crimes in New York's history, Morvan, a house painter, and Mrs. Gatti, who has been living will) him since his separation from his wife, entered no plea and were granted an adjournment until March 10 to seek legal aid. Beaten With Hairbrush. The formal charge of Detective Gordon Hill, who said he obtained Magnussen's confession at 7 a. m. Wednesday after a night of questioning, accused the pair of beating the child, thin and undernourished, with a hpir brush Feb. 24 "without justification, inflicting bruises, wells and abrasions on the face and body of the girl now dead with intent to kill." Magnussen, both in , a signed statement to the detectives and in the Manhattan police lineup Wednesday, admitted criminally assaulting little Joan in a second story bedroom of the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Magnussen, at Huntington station, where Morvan, Mrs. Galto, Joan and another child visited over the week-end. Taken to Jail. Morvan was taken to the Long Island city jail until March 10. Mrs. Gatlo, who was divorced two years ago when Morvan was named co-respondent, was brought to the women's house of detention, Jefferson Market prison, in New York. After i night of ceaseless questioning of the three principals, police believed they had cleaned up what Assistant Medical Examiner Howard W. Neail called "the most brutal murder in my 27 years' experience." Dr. Nail said the child not only had been desperately injured by the criminal assault, but that her body was a mass of bruises and welts from previous beatings. The child was being beaten, the police said, to cure her of a functional weakness during, sleep. So savagely had she been battered, the medical examiner said in his report, that one -toe nail was torn off. First Reported Accidental. Neighbors told detectives, who turned the examination of what was first reported a routine accidental death into a hunt for a moronic killer, the officers said; that Joan, a fragile but pretty little girl with dark hair and blue eyes, had been crying ceaselessly for days in the Morvan home. Magnussen, a g o o d looking young man, also admitted, police said, t h a t he had been having improper relations * with , thi-ce younger sisters, one 11. the second 12, the third 14. The Magnussen children number ten, with the oldest, 31, an inmate of a Queens Park sanitarium. Police said Magnussen sought to justify his conduct by relating other examples ot improper relations within the family in which he did not take part.

LONDON, (#)--Britain's "mechanized and modernized" army told parliament Thursday its estimated expenditure for 1937 "in defense of the empire and discharge of international obligations" would total 5410,870,000, almost half again as much as for 1936. With yesterday's 1937 naval estimate ot $525,325,000, the total army and navy figures comprise the biggest armaments bill Great Britain ever has known in times of peace--$936,195,000. The ail- force estimates are still to come Speaks to House. Alfred Duff Cooper, secretary o.f state for war, told the house ot commons 595,270,000 ot the $131,465,000 increase over the 1936 expenditure would be raised by loans, leaving 5315,610,000 as the official estimate for the budget. The army personnel, he said in discussing the army's share ot Great Britain's greatest peace time rearmament program, would be increased to 168,900, exclusive of units in India, as compared with 158,400 in 193G and 186,400 in 1914. Due to Expansion. The increased expenditure, he explained, was due mainly.to "expansion and acceleration ot the program for bringing our military preparations up to date. "Our joint aim," he said, "is lo produce a military force which will be adequate to supply garrisons in peace at home and overseas, to maintain order in the empire and provide for a force to support the policy of his majesty's government in defense of the empire and the discharge -of their international obligations."

NEW YORK--In recognition of nationally outstanding work in improving traffic safety conditions, the C. I. t. Safely Foundation presented its grand award o£ $5,000 to Lieut. F. M. Kreml of the Evanston, 111., police department at a dinner Wednesday night at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Those present at the dinner, including members of the advisory board of the C. 1. T. Safety Foundation and officials of civic and safety organizations directly concerned with the traffic safety problem, applauded the award to Lieutenant Kreml. Lieutenant Kreml started his career in traffic safety work some years ago as a motorcycle patrolman on the Evanston, 111., police force while still in college. Since that lime he has been an active traffic police officer. His successful organization and the results ot the Evanston Accident Prevention bureau, established in 1927, have been the foundation upon which Lieutenant Kreml's national work has been accomplished. It was announced last June, soon after the establishment of the C. I. T. Safety foundation, that among their annual awards would be a grand award of $5,000 to that "person in any line of endeavor who is deemed, to have contributed the most during the year to ,the cause of traffic safely." This foundation was set up by the C. I. T. corporation, a national installment sales finance company which finances 'automobile sales. By a yearly grant of $50,000 the C. I. T. Safety foundation was established to promote and popularize individual sate driving habits by giving awards to individuals doing outstanding safety work. In selecting Lieutenant Kreml as the person who had accomplished most during 1936 toward reducing traffic accidents, the C. I. T. SaCety foundation Had the judgment of the following committee, selected especially to act upon the grand award: Arthur Hays Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times; Thomas H. MacDonald, chief of the Bureau of Public Roads, and Norman Damon, Manager of the safety department of the Automobile Manufacturers' association. Lieutenant Kreml is known in Iowa as he was the featured speaker at a highway, safely conference held at Iowa State college at Ames last year, a co-operative project o£ the"Iowa Safety Council and the- college.
