VANCOUVER, B.C,,iAP)-rpne of the FBI's most-wanted criminals,-' Joseph Corbett Jr., was arrested Saturday in a Vancouver hotel- by FBI agents and police. He had a gun in his room but gave .up without a struggle. Corbett, 32, is charged with the murder of wealthy brewer Adolph Coors IH, who was shot twice in the back after feaving home for his brewery office in Golden, Corbett's. trail led from .Denver, Colo.,' to - Baltimore, Md., and then into Winnipeg and. Toronto, Canada, before his capture here. • FBI agents told Vancouver police Saturday morning Corbett was believed to be in this British Columbia port city. They provided a description of the car he was thought to be driving. A young constable, Jack Marshall, remembered seeing such an automobile iirfront of a hotel here several days ago. The landlady identified Corbett from his picture when FBI agents and police went there. The officers tried to enter the room with a master key but were balked by a night latch. They then learned Corbett was expecting delivery of a typewriter. Corbett opened the door when they rapped and said they were, delivery men. He was. met with drawn guns and meekly surrendered. Corbett, a native of Seattle. Wash., had come back within 120 miles of his hometown when he sought refuge'here. He had escaped from a Cab'- fornia prison in August, 1955, after serving nearly five. years of a term for second degree murdef in the 1950 gunshot slaying of an air force sergeant. For several years after his escape Corbett lived in Denver under the alias of Walter Osborne.

Coors, wealthy Golden, Colo., industrialist and brewery head, vanished en route to work l?st Feb. 9. His station wagon, engine still running, was found on a narrow bridge on a country road near his Rf- Mount? in foothills home. The bridge rail was blood- flecked, and Coors' cap and glasses were found in a stream below. A spokesman for the Coors' family said a note asking; 5500.000 ransom was received, but no contact was ever, made with a. kidnaper. •-.) Chance For 5th Debate Seems Nil By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon sought votes in suburbs of two of the nation's biggest cities Saturday while chances of bringing them together for a fifth debate all but disappeared. Each side attempted to saddle the other with responsibility for the collapse of negotiations for on more face-to-face encounter via television and radio. Nixon's representative withdrew from the Washington talks, saying the Democrats had violated agreed procedures three times. He demanded that Kennedy apol- o"ize for charging bad faith in the negotiations and withdraw his Saturday night deadline for an agreement on final terms. Kennedy retorted from Philadelphia that Nixon is free to debate or not. as' he sees fit. but: "I -am. not going to drag him up in front of a microphone." The Democratic nominee's press secretary said Nixon has used every trick and device known to. avoid anoth er TV-radio duel. Apart from the strong stands taken with only 10 days of the campaign remaining, the oppor- tunitv for resuming the talks and reaching agreement appears almost nil. Nixon, campaigning in the Chicago suburbs, seized on a Halloween theme. He said this offers "a good time for America to take a look at some of the hobgoblins Mr. Kennedy has been conjuring up." "One by one he has let them loose," Nixon said, "trying to frighten America into believing what is not true; trying-to scare up a few votes. "But this Halloween is a failure. America does not respond to h'is wails of woe because America long ago learned that you cannot really be scared by something that isn't there." The vice president appeared to have lost; most oi the huskiness that had marked his speaking since he caueht a cold in the rain in Ohio Wednesday. Kennedy was having trouble with another campaign asset his right hand. It was swollen, scratched and bruised. While shaking hands fro'm his convertible in Chester, Pa., he had his hand and arm grabbed by admirers. It appeared to newsmen that the arm had been wrenched, and Kennedy seemed to favor it although he minimized the matter later. He told one audience in the Philadelphia area that no candi date for the presidency this year "should go to the people with anything but the truth, and then the people can decide what they want." "I don't believe that this administration has been foresighted," he said.'."I don't believe that they have understood the kind of revolutionary world in which we live." There was a kind of parallel to the Saturday campaigning by Kennedy and Nixon. Both Philadelphia and Chicago are normally Democratic and are ringed by suburbs, likely to vote Republican. Kennedy was tryinq to blunt this trend around Philadelphia; Nixon was trying to spur it on around the edges of Chicago. From the rival party chairmen —"Republican Thruston B. Morton and Democrat Henry M. Jackson —came confident claims about the results of the Nov. 8 voting. Appearing on a taped NBC-TV program, they both said: "We're going to win." / In a separate statement, Jackson said that the Republicans are using fake and phoney polls in an effort to make the voters think they will win, while ignoring impartial surveys by major news- paners. magazines and radio-TV networks. Morton, in a statement of his own, challenged Kennedy's contention, that U.S. prestige has slipped badly during the Eisen hower administration. The GOP chairman said U.S. prestige was never lower than at the end of the Truman administration — a time, he said, marked by "scandal, defeatism, world dismay." Mobutu To (heck Commies In Congo LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo CAP}—Col. Joseph Mobutu said Saturday he never, will permit the return of Soviet influence to the Congo is long as he remains alive. The 30-year-old armv leader told The Associated Press he would not tolerate any challenge to'hig will either from" the United Nations or from the suspended Congolese Parliament.
