. .nt Losansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune F.obe of Shortage 'May Provide Clues In Banker's Murder CHICAGO (UP) - A possible link between the mystery slaying of a Chicago banker and an esti- rca:ed multi-million-dollar short- ase in the office of the Cook County treasurer was investigated today by authorities. The name of Leon Marcus, wealthy banker who was shot,to death'in a gang-style "ride" March 31, cropped up in the probe Wednesday when his initials were found on an allegedly fraudulent check issued by the county treasurer's office. State's Atty, Benjamin Adamowski said the check for $3,654 was cashed at the Southmoor Bank and Trust Co., which Marcus formerly headed. It was the same bank where Illinois' ex-State Auditor Orville E. Hodge cashed phony state checks in his $2,500,000 embezzlement.

Adamowski has estimated the total loss in the treasurer's office may reach three million dollars. The state's attorney said he "suspected" that another apparently bogus check for $7,408 drawn against county funds also was approved by the bank with Marcus' knowledge. Marcus was kidnaped and shot by gunmen who dumped his body in a vacant lot on Chicago's Southwest Side. Adamowski said his investigators were seeking Lionel Ives, one time Septic Tanks South Side bookie now believed living in Florida, for questioning about tie two checks from the.;Norwalk Vault Co. treasurer's office. He said checks in the' same amount were issued to Ives by the j bank shortly after they were presented to the bank.
