LANSING, Kan., Jan. 21.--One convict was dead, two wounded and five in solitary confinement today after a bold attempt to slip to freedom by hiding wooden dummies in their beds and throwing the state prison into darkness to cause confusion. Led by Cecil Thornbrugh, 25- year-old killer who was slain by a guard, the eight plotters leached the prison yard before they were subdued. They had planned elaborately, and had assembled the wooden dummies crudely-designed knives, a rope with an iron hook for climbing the. wall They were aided by a fog, and hac two confederates in the power Vuse to cut off the lights at their signal. Their scheme went amiss, however, when Warden Kirk Prathcr ran .to an auxiliary switch and restored ' the lights and guards began firing before they could reach the wal with their rope. The two wounded were Clifford D, Ottinger, 21, shot in the stomach, and Carries Addington, 20, shot in the hip. Both were sentenced for robbery. The warden had not learned how the 'men got the; wooden dummies into their cells. . , Six of the convicts were in."C" cell house, and two, - Ottinger ant .

NEW YORK, Jan. 21.--Shouts of "hcil Hitler" and "phoocy" rang through a Broadway newsrecl theatre last night at the first public showing in New York City of the March of Time film, "The Inside Nazi Germany--4938." Proponents and opponents of Nazism shook fists across the aisles, but the special police squad assigned to the theatre made no arrests. Discord was confined to bursts of applause, immediately v matched by hissing. . . What the audience saw was scries of pictures taken in Germany with a silent camera, with the commentator's voice "dubbed in" in this country. The controversy rcsultet from the remarks of the commentator. As explained by theatre manager, A. G. Rudd: "The pictures show '. Germany in good condition, but on the other hand, the commentary shows it as a fearsome regime which has enslaved a good people. The pictures tell one story and the commentary another." . . France Combines Defense Forces Under One Head By UnHcd Preji. PARIS, Jan. 21,--The new radical socialist cabinet, preparing to seek a vote of confidence in parliament today, approved.a decree coordinating the ministry of defense with the army, navy and air force and nominating General Maurice Gamclin chief of all national defense. The decree is intended to be preliminary to placing all defenses under one supreme commander in war time. Gamclin is now chief of general staff of the army. In.war time'. Marshals Joff re and Foch commanded the army and air force but :.ot the navy.

May Limit Auto Buying On Installments By LYLE C. WILSON · United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, . Jan. -21.--President Roosevelt met with automobile manufacturers and their installment sales bankers at noon today in a con- Terence which may lead to air abrupt check on monthly payment buying in several fields of comparatively expensive merchandise. Mr. Roosevelt has not revealed the scope of his plans, but it is known that he considers some automobile installment purchase plans to be too lenient. This conference may ultimately mean that you will have to make a larger down payment for your new automobile-and rotirc-the debt in a shorter period-of-time. There was a hint .from Governor Frank Murphy of Michigan that the brakes may be put on' installment buying in other fields', but'Mr. Hoose- vclt has not indicated that so far.' Mr. Roosevelt is expected to suggest today'a voluntary reform" program designed to regularize employment and production. The conference is one of several seeking cooperative action against recession. Names' of- small business men from all parts of the .country, meantime, are being put in a-White House, hat for random selection of those who shall be summoned to "little fellow 1 conferences ' with Mr. Roosevelt.

PAUL, MinnVfJan. 21.-^J. Edgar Hoover, head of Federal Bureau of Investigation, revealed today that Peter Anders, 30, confessed kidnaper and killer, had been connected with two more kidnapings and was suspected of participation in a third Hoover and his agents had recovered the bodies of Charles S. Ross, 72, kidnap victim, and J. Atwood Gray, Anders' accomplice,-both slain by An- 'ders. . . . . "Hoover and a group'of his agents returned .-here early today, leading 'their prisoner on-the end of a chain. He had conducted them on a 48-hour tour of--northern Wisconsin and eastern Mihncsoto, revealing the graves of his murder victims and the place where he had secreted $3o;ooo of the $50,000 he collected from Ross' family on : the assurance that he would release the - aged-valentine- manu- factufor alive. He had $14,402 of the ransom money when he was arrested at Santa Anita race track near Los Angeles last Friday. Hoover had sent word ahead that he would receive the press in the department's field office here, and reporters were waiting for him. He revealed that Anders had confessed kidnaping John and Olivia Borcia of Lake Geneva, Wis., last September 2. Borcia was released at once and Mrs. Borcin was held but two days. His agents, Hoover said, were checking the possibility that Anders had participated in a third kidnaping. · "The Mattson case?" "No comment," Hoover snapped. Charles Mattson, 10, was kidnaped from his pnrcots's home at Tacoma, Wash., and his mutillatcd body was found before his parents could pay the demanded ransom. His brother and sister, who saw the- kidnaper, were taken to,San Francisco Monday by'Federal agents to view Anders. Whether they identified or failed to is known only to them and the Federal agents. However, Dr. William W. Mattson, father of- the dead child, said in Tocomn yesterday that his children had not identified Anders. Hoover characterized Anders as "one of the most atrocious, cold- blooded killers I've ever seen." The bodies were found in n miserable dug-out near Spooncr, In far northern Wisconsin. There on October 10 Anders put a bullet through the brain of Ross, the white-haired, old man whom he hnd seized September 25 and held in captivity under conditions Hoover described as 'dirty, atrocious." Anders shot Gray, his partner in crime, at the same time after knock- Ing him Into the dug-out during an argument. Rosa and Gray were killed two days after .the $50.000. ransom wax tossed to Anders from .1 speeding motorcycle near Rockford, 111. When the party, returned here, « G-man dracKcd Anders at the end of a chain which was shackled nround Ills waist. Anders pulled the brim of his fell hat over hli piercing dark eyes as he entered the room where newsmen awaited.Hoover, and shuffled Into an inner office without looking to right or luft, "We never could have found the todies or the money without his assistance," Hoover smiled. He threw off a lumberman's cap, unbuttoned his sheepskin lined coat and thust -his lumberjack boots under n desk. From his pocket he took n sheaf of penciled notes nnd n mnp. Then -with the nlr of a schoolmaster, pointing'out landmarks on the map.with his pencil, he begnn filling in the filory behind two days and nights of moldrnmatic secrecy on the part of Federal agents. He showed no sign, ol fatigue, although he began, "Let's make . it snappy--I've been up two days and nights." . - . . ' . . . Anders, and Gray, ho said, took their elderly victim first to,a hideout near Emily, Minn., in Crow Wing county. 120 miles from St. Paul. This, he said,: apparently'occurred the ^y after the kidnaping. "It was a shallow dug-out, barely one and .a half feet deep," Hoover said. '.'It was hardly big enough for a grave.": ' '." ' "Ross ato and slept there r 14 days from September 25 or 26 to October 9. At rare intervals he was allowed out to walk and exercise with Gray as his guard.

Davis, R., Pa., today as- seilcd the "intolerant spirit of a few who control the activities of the Republican parly." In letters to William N. Newby, D., at Philadelphia, and John Armstrong at Springdalc, Pa., Davis said that he was "not troubled" by the "old-spirit of'.bigotry-which has been an nge-long curse" and which "finds a counterpart today In the mean and narrow prejudices of the dollar bigot who seeks to compel everyone to fit his own peculiar standards of conduct." Tn another letter to William F. Buchanan, secretary of the Steel Workers Organizing Committee district council at Sharon, Pa., Davis said tfiat he believed "the right to work Is certainly as constitutional as the right to quit work." He added: , "The continuou3 attacks which the Government has made on business have been a blow to labor. These destructive tactics have spread fcnr and uncertainty. The dollar has gone into hiding. Unemployment, has: increased. The way out of our present difficulty is to give greater encouragement to productive agriculture and business, remove the restrictive rncdsures that .hundicap full production, nnd give assurance necessary to long-term business commitments."
