Bank Robber Is Captured In Mexico MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico gave the bum's rush today to Frank Lawrence Sprenz, a flying American bank robber on the FBI's list of 10 most wanted men. Two immigration agents were driving the fast-traveling, fasti talking holdup artist to the 'U.S.- Mexican border to hand him over to American authorities. Captured Monday . as he was fishing off the Yucatan coast, Sprenz in less than 24 hours was ordered deported for entering Mexico illegally. He was flown to Mexico City Tuesday afternoon and transferred to a car for the drive north. The 29-year-old bandit is wanted for robbing a bank in Hamilton, Ohio, of $29,955; for the $1,490 holdup of an Akron, Ohio, cafe and for a series of other crimes in the United States and Canada. Ohio was his chief theater of operations. Wreckage of a plane — one of several Sprenz used in eluding police-led to the capture. Mexican police traced to him a Piper Pacer which cracked up landing early in April on the Gulf coast north of Veracruz. The police tracked him to the Yucatan island resort of Cozumel and nabbed him as he was fishing in the Caribbean. He was posing as a prosperous U.S. highway engineer, one of several roles he assumed in a year of flight. Sprenz broke jail a year ago in Akron with four other prisoners while he was awaiting trial for the cafe holdup. One of the fugitives was killed and three others quickly rounded up. Sprenz got away. The FBI posted him as one of the nation's 10 most dangerous criminals five months later. While a fugitive, he learned to fly in Seattle under an assumed name and then used both air and road to elude police.

Uncle Sam To Question More Tax Returns WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal tax officials said today they will question more jncomc tax returns this year than ever before. The deadline for filing Individual returns Is midnight tonight Legally, returns must reach In tcrnal Revenue Service offices by then. In practice, however, thcy'l be accepted if they are postmarked by that time. Officials supervising IRS tax audits said their work on the latest crop of returns will be expanded regardless of what Congress does with the agency's budget. This is in lino with an announced goal of Commissioner Dnnn Latham to expand tax checks "so that no taxpayer can ever feel that he is secure from an audit." About 2,600,000 income tax re turns of all kinds were auditor last year. An audit means the tax payer is asked to supply more in formation or justify certain item in a return. This work, by 12,600 agents and auditors, brought in an additional A billion dollars in revenue. Only a small fraction of the 93'A million returns filed each year arc audited. About 61 million returns are from Individuals. AUBREY .T.
