Under Indictment, .McLaughlin is already under indictment for conspiracy to possess part of the loot of the $250,000 mail robbery on a downtown Chicago street Dec. 6, 1932, in which he was linked as a "fence" or a confederate with two men now dead -- Qua Winkler, notorious . gangster, and Edgar B. Lebensberger. Lebensberger was found shot to death, supposedly a suicide, in the richly appointed Lake Shore drive suite where Winkler was a frequent visitor.

Face) Nelson, lortly "before noon, the police radio broadcast an alarm that, a car resembling one stolen in Moose Lake, Minn., by a man believed to be Nelson and another, was spotted on University avenue in St. Paul, heading toward Minneapolis. Several squad cars from both cities patrolled the streets but failed to f i » l the car. Chases Stolen Car. Sheriff Hannes Rypkema of Pine county picked up the trail shortly after the thieves raced out of Mooss Lake and chased them 40 miles. The sheriff said he traveled up to SO miles an hour during the chase and once got within shooting range but that another car, speeding ahead of the stolen sedan, prevented jhim from shooting. The sheriff finally was outdistanced and had to give up the chase. Indictments charging conspiracy to harbor and conceal John Dillinger, the notorious killer, were returned by a federal grand jury here today against four persons now held by the department of jus- commissioner in Chicago, where she was apprehended. Mrs. Green, arrested the night of April 3 when Eugene Green was ia- tally wounded by department of justice agents, is held incommunicado by the federal government under $25,000 bail. The Frechette girl is alleged to cave been with Dllllnger in the apartment from which he shot his way here March 31. Dr. May and Mrs. Salt are alleged to have treated Dillinger for a wound he suffered in that escape while Mrs. Green is also alleged to have been connected with the desperado while he hid here. Doctor Not Mentioned. No mention was made of Dr. N. G. Mortensen, suspended as St. Paul city health officer after it became know he treated John Dillinger and John Hamilton, in the grand jury report made in. St. Paul today, It was learned authoritatively. The physician told authorities he did not learn who the men were until several days after he treated them about the middle of March.

Meanwhile, George (Baby Face) Nelson, diminutive gunner, Is the latest reported casualty in the Dillinger ranks. A J6.000 bank robbery In a Chicago suburb is the latest outrage charged to the now widely scattered gang.

Treated for Wound*. "Wooden Gun John" and his first lieutenant, John Hamilton, were treated for shoulder wounds a few weeks ago but apparently have recovered completely. "I took a pop at him and I think I hit him," Johnson aaid of his brush with Nelson. "His car careened to the side of the road. He probably was hit in the arm or shoulder, as I did not aim nigh." While 5,000 or more heavily armed peace officers, augmented by hundreds of volunteers, searched from Louisville northward to the twin cities of St. Paul and Mlnne- ..polls, without 'further definite trace of Dillinger or Nelson, another of the Dlfflnger men was identified as the leader of a quintet of robbers who raided a Villa Park bank yesterday. In Warsaw Raid. He was Homer Van Meter, the swashbuckling ally who recently helped his chief in a sensational raid on the Warsaw, Ind., police station, where they replenished their stock of guns and ammunition.

Baum at Mercer, Wis., last Sunday night, he disappeared without leaving any definite trace. Slips Fast Guards. During the early morning hours of yesterday, Nelson, after hiding out for two days in the shack of an Indian, Ollie, Catfish, was believed to have been cornered by a posse near Fifield, -Wia, In the heavily wooded section of the state, but he slipped past his guards. Still later Nelson was reportec to have been stalked down a blind road in the vicinity of Squirrel Lake, Wis., and the officers combed the woods of that area in the hope that he might be botled up.

UP--Another midwest criminal, Randol Eugene Norvell--sometime aviator, bondsman, gambler, kidnaper and finally a "lifer"--roamed free today, another fugitive testimonial, like John Dfflinger, to the vulnerability at prison bars. On both sides of the Mississippi river officers hunted Norvell, "brains" of the August Luer kidnapers of last July, and his companion, James O'Connell, who crawled through a sewer yesterday to escape from the southern Illinois penitentiary. Hours after the two disappeared from a prison machine shop, Warden J. E. Raegan received reports that Norvell, still wearing his prison garb, had been seen near Perryville, Mo., across the Mississippi. The men, apparently separated after rowing across the river. The two men, both "model prisoners," made their way through a set of steel bars in the machine shop to enter a tunnel, used to house plumbing. Crawling through the narrow passageway, they reached the prison yard, entered the sewer and wormed their way 400 yards to its outlet in the Mississippi river. The absence of the two was not discovered until the inmates were "counted in" for last night's meals. NEW CABINET OF SPAIN IS FORMED Samper Ibanez Prepared to Submit His List to President.

C-B-Bishop James Cannon, Jr., freed- of conspiracy charges arising from the wet and dry campaign of '28, turned .anew today to his fight in behalf of prohibition. The gray haired leader of the Methodist Episcopal church, south, now 69, rushed toward the general conference of that church now in session at Jackson, Miss. Before boarding his train here late last night, Cannon pledged himself again to the cause of prohibition. Despite the physical strain of a nearly three weeks' long trial, which found emotions near the breaking point at its end. the bishop declared himself feeling "far better" than when the first rumbles of legal trouble started four years ago. A jury found Cannon and Miss Ada L. Burroughs, treasurer of his headquarters committee, anti-Smith democrats, "not guilty" yesterday of a charge of conspiring to conceal contributions made for defeating Alfred E. Smith, 1928 democratic presidential nominee, in the south. The acquittal ended forever any legal question of the manner in which the churchman used the more than $100,000 he received during and just after the campaign. The indictment under which the bishop and his aide were tried was returned by a District of Columbia grand jury some time before expiration of the three year statute of limitations under the corrupt practices act. The time has now expired. There are 12,000 students and a faculty of 750 at Temple university, Philadelphia. study ot the Book of Jonah and its mission.

"Victor powers are no longer free to act as they please in the matter of disarmament," declared Foreign Minister Konstantain von Neurath.

(#--King Victor Emmanuel declared today that while Italy ardently desires peace,, she will increase the strength of her military in the conviction that is the first guarantee of peace.

Clark said the clause meant ·that the state would have to carry its own insurance on the buildings up to 525,000." He said the policies can be canceled under the state law on the grounds of illegality, and that the return of $4,500 in premiums will be asked of the' company. The insurance was with the First National Insurance company of Seattle, Wash. Governor Herring said neither he nor other -state officials had authorized the issuance of the insurance, and that the policies were handled through the agent for the insurance company at Iowa City. He said he ordered the cancela- tion because "the state was paying for insurance :it did not have."
