TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 22, 1985 .Tflfe PAMfA DAtti* PampS, PAGE FIVti TWO GANGSTERS REtURN TO DIE IN'HOT SQUAT' Richmond Again Is Host to Legenza And Mais RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 22 <yp)— Two h;>f;Rr.rd. pasty-faced gangsters— Rob irt Mnis and Walter Legenza came back to Richmond today to die In the electric chair for the murder of E. M. Huband, federal reserve bank truck driver. Legenza, on a stretcher, both legs broken; the emaciated Mais, his right eye blackened, came back prisoners to the city from which several months ago they shot their way to freedom. Guarded by 10 federal agents, armed with machine guns and tear gas, tne tri-state gangsters came in on the Havana special of the Atlantic CoasS line railroad and were whisked away in an ambulance and a police car to their death cells in the state penitentiary. Soon — probably early next month—these two gangsters, accused of a multitude of crimes in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington, and Virginia, will die in the electric chair. Ten minutes after they were placed In police cars at Broad street station, the gangsters arrived at the state penitentiary where they were delivered to Supt. Rice M. Youell. First came Mais, nervous, haggard, weighing 20 pounds less than he did when he shot his way to freedom and still carrying In his body six bullets tha f . police shot Into him before his trial in Richmond. Three federal men, one pointing a machine gun at him, escorted the prisoner into the penitentiary. He limped down the echoing hallway, legs In Irons, his hands cuffed. Behind him came Legenza on a stretcher. His face was pasty under the prison lights. He drew his pink and white striped blanket close to his chin. Inside the foyer, the procession halted while guards procured keys to the death cell. Even inside the penitentiary police never relaxed their vigilance. A menacing machine gun was trained on the men and other armed' agents watched them closely. Japanese Ship Drifts; Liner Rescues 45 Men SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 22. Wilts crew of 45 men saved in a dramatic North Pacific rescue, the sinking Japanese freighter Hoku- men Maru was a "ghost-ship" today, drifting 200 miles off the Washington coast. The coast guard cutter Chelan put ,out from .Seattle and was expected to reach the abandoned ship for inspection some time time during the day. Details of the rescue by the mail liner President Jackson were meager, but messages from Captain M. M. Jensen, master of the American ship, brought the assumption by shipping men that the freighter's deck load of logs had shifted. The stricken 4,000-ton craft listed sharply. Messages picked up by Globe wireless here told of rough seas that temporarily balked the rescue. • The President Jackson maneuvered into position and as the sea quieted, mode the transfer in lifeboats in less than two hours. It was due in Seattle today. The Hokuman Maru was en route from Vancouver, B. C., to Osaka. BIRTHDAY POSTER GIRL PRAISED BY CHRISTY "typical of American Youth," Says Artist of Miss Ford. Winner of Prizes and Model for 1935 PaintinR. (Continued from cage 1.) senate bill to re-district the state has been introduced. Mr. Worley's appointments on the two ma.lor committees—oil and gas and. insurance—was rather unexpected after the defeat of Rep. Bob Calvert, for speaker of the house by Rep. Coke Stevenson. The Panhandle representative supported Mr. Calvert, as did Governor Allred. Recent dispatches from Austin have stated that the-governor and the speaker "buried the hatchet" in a love feast directly after the election of Mr. Stevenson, and that the latter would be fair to the chief executive's proposed legislation. ' The Panhandle is probably more interested in what the legislature is going to do about the sour gas controversy than in any other legislative issue. A project for taking care of unemployed youth in 'Sweden, similar to the civilian conservation corps in the United States, has been announced by the Swedish government's unemployment commission. The average freshman at j;he University of Vermont, is 18.96 years old, weighs 1-14.91 pounds and is 5 feet 7V6 inches tall.

Physicians said a heart attack, following pxertlon and exposure.-caused his death.

Cardui for Certain Pains "Several years ago, I suffered quite a lot at menstruation time," Writes Mrs. Oscar Branan, o£ Vicksburg, Miss. "I took Cardui and I believe it stopped aJl this trouble. Last year, I felt the need of Cardui again, for pains in my head and back at my menstruation period. I went back to Car. dui. Now I do not suffer. I feel just fine and can go ahead with my work as at other times. I feel that any time I spend money for Cardui I am getting value received." Thousands of women testify Cardui benefited them.

Monroe: How do you do it? Jean: Kiss while you are dancing. Mone: But I can't dance. Jean: Who gives a continental? Snooper heaved a sigh of relief as \te finished his exams last week, but it turned into a groan yesterday when he received his report cards. Bill Haner's curse on his enemies is that they should live to be a hundreds years old and have epileptic fits every 15 minutes. Snooper hopes Bill likes him. Snooper noticed Chester Uunka- pillur receiving hearty congratulations on his fifteenth birthday at neon yesterday. Edward Scott's amusing new pastime is punching window panes out.

The Harvesters are still weakened by sickness of two regulars and several subs. The playing of Mayse Nash has been outstanding in the past few games, and he will probablv team with Stokes Green at forward against Plainview. Edward Scott, regular, is still suffering with a bad cold but will probably get the call at guard. No game has bsen scheduled for Friday night but there will likely be one. Sickness hampered the Harvesters' playing and spelled defeat for them in a hard fought basket game against the fast Sandie quintet at Amarillo last Thursday night. The Sandies won 21-27. The Tell team, led by the tall Osborn brothers, fell before the Harvesters 14-27 last Friday night. The same evening the Gorillas lost a game to Follett. Borger's scrapping Bulldogs played here Saturday night and in the most thrilling game of the season lost to the Harvesters 20-24. In preliminary games the Fee-Wees defeated a quintet of Midgets from LeFors. Immediately following this the Haryesterettes fell before the Borgsr girls' team. The Miller If you think football is the only thing Pampans get enthusiastic about, you should come to some of the basketball games that are being played at the gymnasium and find out how badly mistaken you were. Saturday night, when the Harvesters played Borger, the crowd was in an uproar, and most of the spectators were standing during the closing minutes of the game. Attend. You'll like it. Basketball is a fast and exciting sport. The only thing that keeps the current games from being thoroughly enjoyable is the occasional booing that emanates from some of the rooters. Although such things may be old- fashioned and unnecessary, it looks good to see a team go into a huddle and give a yell for the other side after a game. •»Band-Pep Squad to Have Banquet Soon A band-pep squad banquet sponsored by the PTA will be held Thursday evening.
