He \v«s given a life .sentence;. Many prominent police officials.' including Police Commissioner John Prendergast, Chief of Detectives Walter Storms, and Ray Crane,', chief of the uniformed police, were' named in the suit. Verburph is now farming a small j vegetable garden on the outskirts of Chicago. He has indicated that he might like to return lo Belgium to relirc. j and happiness. 1 As immediate moves in the interests of safety Wiley suggested that: 1. Congress should plan for decentralization of its own branch ->f government, even if this means •'legislation by television simultaneously from 30 or 40 different poini.5 of our country in of a national emergency." 2. The Armed Services .should re.- lam their personnel for decentralization and take the central head- quart rrs of the Army. Navy and Air Forces away from Washington's Pentagon. 3.
