P*OB BLTTHBVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, M5K. Fingerprints Found In Rubenstein's Room Are Checked NEW YORK (AP) — Ten mysterious fingerprints found in the bedroom of Serge Rubenstein were checked today in search lor the killer of the millionaire financier and draft dodger. Discovery of these prints and eight others was disclosed yesterday by Asst. Dist. Atty. Alexander Herman. Six fingerprints proved to be those of the murder victim and two others were • useless smudges, Herman said. Mindful of the 46-year-old Rubinstein's playboy reputation, police are checking the 10 prints against those on file for more than 5,000 night club entertainers. Although the prints could lead to the person who strangled Rubinstein in his lavish 5th Avenue home five days ago, they also might turn out to be as unimportant as a woman's purse and glove that sparked police interest for a time. Herman said these female belongings, found in the slain man's bedroom, had been traced to Pat Wray, one of Rubinstein's cafe society girl friends. She told police she left them there last fall, he said. Authorities, still baffled by the mysterious slaying, continued to check the more than 1,000 names Rubinstein listed in his notebooks. Reportedly these included names of top Hollywood figures and persons high in Las Vegas, Nev., gambling circles. Asst. Dist. Atty. Courtlandt Nil yesterday interviewed financier Lee Brooks at a hospital where he had recently undergone an operation. There was no basis for considering Brooks a suspect in the case. Nicoll stated. Later in a bedside interview, Brooks told reporters: "Go to Stanley T. Stanley, Rubinstein's only channel to respectable business, and you will see evidence of big deals that could lead to the killer." Stanley is one of those business associates of Rubinstein Who have suggested the slaying was a paid job. "It was a mob job—a syndicate killing," he declared on the day of the murder. Brooks, who fought Rubinstein in an oil company deal and filed a suit against him for five million dollars, said: "It would serve my purpose better if he had remained alive, as we had an iron-clad case against him."
