Missing Plane Found; Four Bodies In Wreck MOUNT STERLING, Iowa (UP) —A search • party Tues'day night found the wreckage of a plane and the bodies of four Chicago suburbanites missing since Sunday Sheriff Herbert Wanserski of Portage County injected the controversial theory into the investigation Tuesday night when he said he 'found the shrunken head of a missing woman in Gein's "house of horrors." However, the director of Wisconsin's crime laboratory, Charles Wilson, said it would be imposj sible to identify any of ,the human death masks or skulls by sight. Gein, 51, a frail, mild-mannered farmer from near Plainfield, Wis., has admitted butchering a Plainfield woman storekeeper last Saturday. He said he got the rest of! the skulls found in his junk-littered j Mrs. Worden's body irom her hardware store and hanging it by the heels in his woocbhtd. When j found, the body had been dfcap- italed and "dressed out like a! deer." There also were traces of formaldehyde in Gein's house, Wilson said, which could mean that Gein embalmed murder victims or that the skulls could have come from persons already embalmed. But Wilson said he did not think Wanserski could possibly identify the head of Mary Hogan from among Gein's ghoulish trophies. NEW IIOF'F A TRIAL DATE WASHINGTON' (UP) — Federal Judge F. Dickinson Letts today set a new date—Dec. 2—for trial of charges that James R. Hoffa was illegally elected president of the Teamstw Union.
