PAUL, Minn., Feb. 25.--St. Paul today pointed to Fcdenil Department o£ Justice statistics as proof the city no longer merits the title 'crime center of the nation" given it three years ago by Attorney General Homer S. Cummings. Cummings condemned St. Paul as a "haven tor criminals" -late in IS24 when a staff. of about 50 Vcderal Bureau of Investigation men was being maintained here to clean up six major kidnapings of the previous three years. At' that time John DillioRcr and Baby Face Nelson were practicing' machine gunning on Minnesota sign posts and law officers, the Barlccr- Karpls gang snuggled safely in several hideouts in and about St. Paul. Several police officials, who since have been ousted, were operating gambling and bawdy houses. But last year, according to F. B. I. figures, St. Paul dropped to third place in crime ratings among Minnesota's three large cities. St. Paul had only one murder for each 67,901 of its population compared with one for a little over 50,000 of the population in Duluth and in Minneapolis. On a percentage basis, St. Paul zl- so trailed the other two in larceny and in auto thefts, topping them both only in one classification, liurglarics. There were no kidnapings lifted.
