The document which the judge held in his hands was marked "not a true bill." It contained the government's charges of tax evasion.

INSULL SUFFERS BRIEF COLLAPSE (Continued From Page 1) bail. Under the circumstances I am of the opinion that the suggestion of the government is not excessive."

"Father will have to submit to incarceration," he said. "We cannot make the bond." The collapse was not considered serious, although both his son and Dr George B. Corey, who had ministered to him on the train from the east, said the long walk from the train and the excitement had overtaxed his heart Samuel, Jr., said his father was in no pain. "He just can't get his breath, the son said. "He has a heart condition--I don't know the name of it--but it amounts to hardening of the muscles around the heart. He had to walk the length of the 13 car train and up two flights of stairs to the street. He told me he hadn't walked that far, even on the level, since he left Greece." Just Across Street. In the federal courthouse, just across the street from his former office in. the Commonwealth Edison building, Insull was delivered into the marshal's custody by Burton Y Berry, who had brought him back from Istanbul on the S. S. Exllona on a presidential warrant. Marshal Laubenheimer signed receipt for Insull, relieved Berry of-his ward and read the 74 year old man the charges against him .Use of the United States mails in a scheme to defraud investors in his coroporation securities company fraudulent acts in anticipation o the bankruptcy of his companies and himself. One Questionable Action. There was only one questionabl action on the part of the throng who waited at the station Insull. It might have been sinister but the Insull entourage regarded i aa friendly. As the former utilities monarch entered one of the waiting automo biles, with his son on one side an Berry on the other, a man burs through the police lines and dashed toward the car. He reached the financier's auto ,. mobile and his hand shot throug an open window. Almost in th same instant, Captain Collins of th Chicago police escort sent the ma sprawling with a blow from his fis To spectators, the fallen ma identified himself as Anton Sable of Athens, Greece. He would make no comment. Action Not Sinister. Insull's son said: "The action meant nothing sinister. The man's gesture obviously was one of riendship. He wanted to shake 'ather by the hand. Even as he fell, ! noticed he was smiling." Dr. Arthur Elliott, a personal friend of long standing, was culled :o the federal courthouse by the financier's son and made thorough examination of Insull's heart. The physician observed a sclerotic condition, a hardening of the arteries, and ordered a wheel chair to take Insull to the courtroom The whitehaired prisoner spurned it, with insistent gestures. "No, no, no," Insull cried. "It would go over the cables. Gladys (his wife, still in Athens) would be worried to death." Insists on WaUdng. The federal marshal and th« doctor kept pressing Insull to accept a wheel chair for the trip through the corridors to the sixth floor court. "I know the building, it's all right," Insull said he would walk it. Marshal Laubenheimer told Insull he must take him to the little back room where criminals and suspects are examined, fingerprinted and put through the routine inspections. "That's fine," said the erstwhile multimillionaire, and rising, strode back into the guarded room. As he finished the identification "routine Insull was led out to be arraigned before Federal Judge John P. Barnes. At the door he was handed ft. cablegram from Mrs. Insull. "Thinking of you on arrival with great love, Gladys," it read. DRAFT PLAN FOR FINLAND'S DEBT Agreement, Trimming Down Interest, Awaits F. R. Approval. WASHINGTON, May 8.
