Poisonous Toadstools May Have Killed Daughter of Marine CAMP LeJBUNE, N.C. (UP)— Navy doctors performed an autopsy today to determine whether the 3-year-old daughter of a Marine sergeant died from eating poisonous toadstools. Kim Maureen Kane died Friday while en route here from the dispensary at the Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station.

Kuhns shot and killed Compau and later attempted to collect a $50 reward authorities offered for identification of the slain gang member. The coroner became suspicious and ordered Kuhns' arrest. But Kuhns knocked down his captors, through a hole and appeared on carved a career of crime through central Indiana. He later escaped capture at Logansport, only to be taken while asleep in a Peru farmhouse. The end came June 2, 1907, when Sheriff Hott of Van Wert County joined a posse which had been trailing Kuhns 'for 40 miles. He was sighted near Van Wert, but refused to surrender and returned the fire of the posse. Hott's buggy was riddled by his return fire. Kuhns took to a thicket, turned around and fired on Hott who saved himself by leaping into a ditch. The sheriff knocked Kuhns down with a shotgun blast and the famed outlaw died a few hours later.

Russia has long been the leader in the demand that tests be ended and that nuclear weapons be outlawed. This demand is becoming increasingly insistent in the United Slates and Great Britain, the only two countries besidei" Russia which have developed the H-bomb — or any other atomic weapon. Bui President Eisenhower and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan have answered the demand by saying firmly that they will not promise to end tests until Russia agrees to an air -. tight system of inspection to safeguard their countries against cheating. President Eisenhower, in making his statement, said that the campaign in the United States "looks like almost an organized affair." Scientists Issue Appeal In the United States, the campaign against the tests is being conducted largely by scientists who—in disagreement with o!!icr scientists — hold that radioactive fallout resulting from tests may doom children of future generations to dread disease. In Great Britain, the demand is being made chiefly by the leftist Labor Parly, the opposition to Macmillan's Conservatives, and by churchmen. The demand hit the headlines in the United States last Monday when Dr, Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize winner of the California Institulc of Technology, announced ihat 2,000 scientists had joined him i;: urging an international agreement to end tests because of radiation danger. Pauling said his announcement Mrs. Oscar Cromer, 1010 West Market street. i grew out of a speed) lie mace in St. Louis on May 15. He said snore than 20 scientists had "collaborated" in preparing the appeal. They did so . as individuals, ho said, and no organization was involved.
