^rfj,feiS;ii*ii^te^^ FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE BODY OF WOMAN SOUGHT IN WRECK Hand Found That Does Not Belong to Man's Body First Recovered. MUSCATINE, May 7. «·)--The probability that another body, possibly that of a woman, lay beneath the mass of twisted freight cars near Fairport today lent another motive for speed to crews clearing the Rock Island right of way of the cars which Sunday plunged from the rails there. Authorities here began their search late Sunday night after a man's body had already been recovered from the twisted wreckage which littered the scene for a distance of more than 700 feet. The belief that still another body wag trapped in the debris was based on the fact that a hand, which at first was believed that of the man found earlier, did not belong to him and was from the body of another per- ·son. Seen on Train. A woman, who was seen on the train Sunday as it passed through Fairport going west, has not since been located. Officials said this morning they expected to find the body beneath the refrigerator car which was the first to leave the tracks. At least three other cars were between it and wrecking crews, however, and it was expected that several hours · might elapse before it could be reached. Body IB Identified. The body of the known victim was identified by the sheriff and coroner here Sunday night as that of Orson Mitchell of Seyraore, Iowa. The Seymore address was established by a driver's license and a fishing license found in the pockets of a coat he wore. The body will be taken to the home at Seymore this afternoon sometime after the inquest. The man was first believed to bi of Stillman Valley, m., but this later proved groundless. Hilled in Collision. SPRINGFIELD, HI., May 7. UP1-- Wilbur Remelow, 21, was killed Sunday and three others injured when their automobile collided with a truck. ABEL SON INC CAPADE (Continued From Fig* 1) he former "Lion of La Salle street" and political leader! Sally was still dazed by the sud- enness of her' good fortune. Two ·eeks ago on a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon she had sat in her room with a borrowed typewriter writing etters of application. When she was bout to quit she came upon one: PRIVATE SECRETARY--Retir- d Chicago businessman, collector, ·ants a private secretary willing o travel.

She was about to pass over it ·hen she hesitated. She always had een willing to take a chance. Why ot now when it meant only anther letter, another stamp? She was not a private secretary; she was a stenographer. But it was the ame thing; she could write a good etter, she was tactful and level- eaded and a good typist. Well edu- ated? As well as most girls who had gone on reading and studying after high school. Twenty-one? Close to it. She was neat and she was well recommended and the invitation to "tell all in first letter and make it a good one" piqued her porting instinct More important, she certainly wanted to travel. So she had answered the letter and lad promptly forgotten it When the answer came at the end of a rainy, disheartening day she had felt giddy. It was from John Kemble Proctor, no less, at his winter home in Daytona Beach Florida and she was to report on Nov. 27. He had liked her letter, her frankness in admitting that she did not exactly meef all the qualifications. A ticket would be waiting a the Dearborn street station. _ She walked down the soft aisle back to her berth. Sitting sidewise on her bed, she tucked her clothing into the little hammock-like net hanging by the window, turned on the reading lamp above her pillow and got out a magazine.

Very much the contrary they were wandering the earth to forget the only girl in the world who had married the worthless son of an earl. Footsteps were coming down the aisle, distinctly masculine footsteps Sally gave her hair a pat, drew the curtains back a little, threw the covers over her legs and pretendet to be reading the magazine. She looked up. It was he, Thornwood L Cavanaugh, the world wanderer His back was to her. She took bin in He was not as tall as she hac imagined, but tall enough.

Anything else has been faked." Insull was met at Ambrose Lightship bv his son, Samuel Insull, Jr., and affectionately greeted by him on the Exilona. The two breakfasted together.

Policies ana administration plans were being altered to meet conditions I had not foreseen. The new management was entitled to a free hand, unembarrassed by suggestions from me. No Charges Brought "No charges were brought against me until I had been away for three months. My return at that time would have further complicated the problems of the reorganization of the companies. "Charges against me grew out of my business operations. My trial, I felt prior to a reorganization and readjustment' of the companies' troubles, would hinder this reorganization. This, to me, was far more important than my fate because it affected the investments of thousands of people. Then, too, from my own point of view, I was confident that my trial would be simplified if all the facts about the companies were known first and their reconstruction were well under way before I was forced to face charges which had been placed against me. Admits He Errec. "I have erred, but my greatest eror was in underestimatng the effect of the financial panic on American securities and particularly on the companies I was working so hard to build. I worked with all my energies to save those companies. I made mistakes, but they were honest mistakes. They were errors in judgment, but not dishonest manipulation. ' "The whole story has not yet been told. You only know the charges of the prosecution. Not one word has been uttered in even feeble defense of me. And it must be obvious that there also is my side of the story. "When it is told in court, my judgment may be discredited, but certainly my honesty will be vindicated."

Both of them were visibly laken. Boll In Rough Sea. After the Insulls had breakfasted and a few pieceS of baggage had een transferred, the aged prisoner was brought aboard the Hudson. 5oth the Hudson and the Exilona were rolling in a rough sea, and the adder which connected them slid irecariously from side to side. Insull was assisted by sailors on he Exilona as he made his way own the ladder and was grabbed by ailors of the Hudson' as soon as they could reach him. Others watched the scene with nervousness. On the Hudson, Insull was besieged by photographers, who found lira ready and willing to pose, but unwilling to let them run the show. "Get away, I'll run this," he told one of them. "This is my show and his is my mug. I've got a proprie- ary Interest in it." Statement Prepared. Insull's statement was prepared by him while he and his son break- asted. The full text follows: "I am back in America to make the most important fight of my life--not only for freedom but for complete vindication. "Two years ago when I left this country there were no charges against me. "When I left, the companies, which over a period of 40 years I lad helped build, were in the process of reorganization. The terrific stresses of the depression and mis- :akea which I made in an honest effort to protect these companies and the investors in them, made the reorganization necessary. "Arbitrarily, I had been instructed to resign the head of these companies which I had built and which 1 had tried to protect. No Longer Needed. "I was told that I was no longer needed. Tired from the fruitless straggles to save the investments of thousands of men and women, discouraged in my attempts to save the investments or my friends and associates as well as everything I had, I got out.

ROOM-BASE Theinsidebodyroom of thecar--the distance from the dash to back of rear seat shotting roomy rear seat of Ford Y-8 T HE wheel-base of a car is not always an indication of -its body room. Cars of similar -wheel-base may vary considerably in the amount of interior space available for the comfort of passengers. That's the difference between Wheel-base and room-base. One is the outside distance from the front hub to the rear hub. The other is what you get inside the car --the room from the dash to the back of the rear seat. Take the New Ford V-8, for instance. Its wheelbase is 112 inches --a good generous dimension. But the roominess of the body is even greater than you would expect in a car of this size. The reason is plain and easy to see. But it is not something you usually associate with body room. It's the V-8 engine. In this design, the eight cylinders are built in two banks of four each and are opposite each other in the shape of a V. This c o m p a c t construction means thst they take Note wide entrance and roomy front seat ot Ford'V-8, up only half as much space in the hood as they would if they were strung out in a long straight line. Less space for the engine naturally means that more of the car's length can be used for body room in front and rear compartments. · There need be no doubt about the roominess of this car. It's some* thing you can check-up definitely and exactly. Your own tape mea* sure will show you how much more leg room, seat room and head room you get in the New Ford V- 8.
