Nowhere were the fugitives identified. Concentrate Search. The federal men concentrated their search on roads north of Eagle River and about Park Falls. They saw little hope in carrying the hunt back through the trackless woods and swamps to the thousand and more shacks that might have been stocked by the gang for a hideout.

Many airplanes dropped from the skies, bringing re-enforce- ments. The department of justice men were under orders to shoot to kill. The sentiment was openly expressed that Diilinger dead would be more desirable to the forces of law than Diilinger alive. The memory of the outlaw's latest victim-a government agent slain as Dii- linger blasted his way from a tavern near here Sunday night--was not calculated to encourage the officers to take any chances with the heavily armed desperado and his ^ang of criminals. Caught in crossfire. While four of the desperadoes had not been located since they burst out of the Mercer tavern, one of their victims, John Morris, another CCC worker haplessly caught in the crossfire, remained In a critical condition at an Ironwood hospital.

Newman, left the Infirmary. Policeman Wounded.
