Jordan to Hang 4 Men Who Plotted Overthrow of Hussein Jordan authorities ordered the public hanging today of four men who plotted to overthrow King Hussein during the recent political crisis touched off by his leftist opponents. Wooden gallows were erected in the main squares of four of Jordan's cities where anti-Hussein a anti-Western demonstrations were crushed by loyal Bedouin tribesmen of the one-time Arab Legion. The cities were Amman, Nablus, Hebron and Tulkarm. The last three are all ir. areas West of the Jordan River—stronghold of ousted Premiem Suleiman El Nabiilsi Tul- karm is on the Israeli border. The four plotters were the first to be condemned to death for their activities. Several hundred other conspirators and trouble-makers were under arrest, but it was believed few of them would be hanged. Two former chiefs of staff will be tried in absentia on charges of treason—Maj. Gen. Ali Abu Nuwar and Maj. Gen. Ali Hiyyari who fied to Syria and then to Egypt. Nabulsi himself was reported held under house arrest <n Jordan while scores of his followers were either arrested or purged from the government and the army. Egypt, which appeared to have lost many of its close ties with Jordan as result of the crisis and Its anti - Hussein propaganda, turned its attention today to France and the United Nations. Egyptian political circles were overjoyed at the downfall of Premier Guy Mollet and called it a "resounding victory" for President Gamal Abdel Nasser and his Suez Canal policies. They were equally pleased with outcome of the French-inspired U.N. Security Council debate on the Suez. That ended with only a "suggestion" that Egypt remove Western doubts about Egyptian regulations canal. Two of the three Prime Ministers who ordered attacks against Kuypl last fall have fallen—British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden and Mullet. Jerusalem dispatches today reported the third.

River Pirate Bank Robbers Are Captured Kentucky Posse Corrals Bandits After Boat Chase Down Ohio River MURPHYSBORO, HI. (UP) — Two "river pirates" who robbed a small town bank of $40,000 eluded the president of another bank in a waterborne chase Tuesday only to be captured by a. riverbank posse. They were jailed for questioning today about other plunder along the Mississippi and Ohio rivers.' The freebooters, Arthur Kerner, 30, and Robert Ferrise, 35, both of St. Paul, Minn., pillaged the First State Bank of Mounds, 111., and were headed by boat towards New Orleans when forced to land in Kentucky, where a riverside posse of state police awaited them, FBI agent Fred Graper said the two admitted a.$1,500 tavern robbery in St. Paul and from the booty purchased a 19-foot -cabin cruiser last month. Casting off from St. Paul. Graper said, they headed for New Orleans, replenishing their coffers in a series of river robberies. The pirates were down to their last $100 when they dropped anchor at Cairo, HI., where the Ohio joins the Mississippi. Sighting Mounds, six miles up the Ohio, they docked their cruiser at nearby Mound City, bought a used car, ;nd sacked the bank at Mounds, Gunfln- HaltH llumllls They abandoned their car and '.ook to the water again. Six miles dinvnslrcam, Carney Fisher, president of the Security National Kank of Cairo, picked up a police report and. pursued ihe fleeing craft in his own boat. Hugging the Kentucky shore, the pirates maneuvered their boat toward the broad expanse of the Mississippi below Cairo. The nautical bank president put on full steam aixl tracked them downstream until they finally '•ought to evade their pursuer by slipping Into a secluded cove.

Dangerous Flares Dropped From Plane Hunted in Florida JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UP) — The Navy mustered ground parties today to search for a pod of 52 "extremely dangerous" magnesium, flares which ripped from the wing of a jet photo plane over central Florida. "One of these flares would light up Times Square so .bright you couldn't oven see the lights of Broadway," chief journalist Bob Ohl said at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station. The pod, wherever it lies, may be triggered by the slightest impact or even by a hot sun, Ohl said. He said the 52 flares would have a total brilliance of more than,' 2,500,000,000 candle power. The four-foot, streamlined pod dropped from the wing of an F'JF-SP Cougar jet piloted by U. (JG) Edward Chorllon Tuesday niglit about seven miles southwest of Lake George, the Navy said. Ohl Maid it was believed unlikely the pod fell near any developed property but said it was feared | likely to touch off a flro in the Oeala National Forest If triggered by an animal or by Ihe sun.

WASHINGTON (UP)—The White House today stepped into a dispute over whether the United States or Japan should try an American soldier tor 'the slaying of a Japanese woman. Informed sources said a high- level decision could be expected soon. The ease has become a newspaper sensation in Japan where some elements, demand the right to try Army SSC William S.

The 23-year-old enlis'ed man is charged wilh having killed Mrs. Naka Sakni last January by firing an empty cartridge cusc from a grenade launcher while guarding a machine gun posl at Camp Weir in Japan. The missile struck the woman in the bndt. Girard was reported lo' h;wc been trying lo wnni shell scavengers BWU.V from the areri. The Japanese claim they have the right to try him on criminal charges under the status of forcei agreement. The Defense Department at first agreed and then changed its mind.

Several congressmen have demanded that U.S. military authorities refuse to turn Girard over to the Japanese court. Man Selling Whiskey Kills Poolroom Patron EAST CHICAGO, Ind.
