Chicago Gangster's Gun Foils Attempt to Murder Him in Bed at Hospital Throe Ballets Find Mark In Frank McErlnne But He to Life. 40 SHQTS FIRED IN FIERCE BATTLE By y t i l t e d Press, CHICAGO, Feb. 25.--Twenty-seven "tmliet holoa U-d-ay scarred the wjjite walls of the hospital from where Frank McErleue, "Back of the Yards" beer baron ant 1 notorious as Chicago's toughest gangster, {ought a gun battle ·with three racketeers who trapped him as he 1iy with a broken log last night. Snarling hatred of hie enemies and defiance to police, McErlane hold onto life grimly totiay although three bul- I-ote from his would-be ueaasuins' guns reached tieir murk. Onu pierced his hack, another tore through his (high. A third disabled the wrist of hin gun Jjanrl. Propped on an elbow, hearing against the ivoightti t h a t held his plaster-coat encased leg in the air, the ally of "Spikn" O'Donriell pumped five tihots from Ms automatic when the trio of unannounced visitors stepped into his room. Instantly the room echoed to the roar of guns until he- tureen 30 and 40 shots had been tired. "They sneak ad In like alley rats and ran like dogs," growled the gangster ·when police reached his cot in the terror-stricken ward at the German Peaconese' Hospital -where the gun battle was fou xht. But McKrlare, true to ganpland's iron code, refticetl to tell who shot him. Even w h e n police- told him they were going to remove him to the Bridewell Hospital, which he said "means sure death for me," he stuck to his noncommittal ans'vere. The gunmen executed their raid into the supposed eanetnary of the hig hospital with d a r i n g and lightning speed. A sedan drew up at tho curb. The three sped up a fire escape. They slipped past two roonw and into the one where MrErlano had !tin eince .January 2S. ftlcErlane'st private nurse was out of the room. Panic came ewlftly as the roar of gunfire swept through the wards. Patients screamed.

WASHINGTON, feh. 5.-- The Wves of 'none of the 14 Jewteh ra-bbie arrested by Soviet Kuesian awtharities at Minsk are in di-ngor, according to a cablegram receivsw* hore by Senator Borah, Reprublicajv Idaho. The caljiegraan, (rani M. I^itvinoff, aciting Sovk't com :nisiiir for for«tgn affairs, said all but. three of tho rabbis have been roliaaed and indicated non* of these- vild he eiccutod.

Only becaus*- McErlanc livod in constant fear of ( eath and had smuggled n pistol into the hospital and kept It concealed under hie pillow was the attempt it assassination frustrated, police declar*xl. "Ho shot first." they said. "ThU epoiled the aim of the others." Police Commissioner William F.

It was not titiMl polico arrived after tho gun battle that life story was disproved. "It looks UK it' the enemiee who shot him before came back to finish the job," Lieutenant Garrett Coan said. When the g.-ing«tor made arrangements for hia room, officials recalled, ho insisted on n private room where he would hav-o unobstructed view of both tho fire oscapo and the door. That was taken ae :ouclu«lve indication he expected an at tempt on his life. In the early days of the beer racket, McBrlane was allied with Joe Saltis. Later ho quarreled with Saltis and arranged an alliance with "Spike" CVDonnell, Mrmbers of both the Saltis arid Danny Stunton gangs would have reason to be enemies. Three years .igo, McBrlane was tried on a charge of murdering Attorney Thad T'^ancher at Valparaiso, Ind.. but was acquitted. Ho has been held in connection wi = h many other killings, most of them nf the wanton type. A few montas ago police arrested him with three automatic pistols in his possession. Hundreds of venire- men were questioned before the state could get 1" vho would try him on a charge of carr/iug we«p«ns. The jury awiuittod him. Locke, Novelist, Dyfngr.
