MSI? •FLYING BANDIT' WOULD HAVE DONE IT 'AGAIN' i NEVADA CITY, Calif., Feb. 8. (/P) —Clarence Frechette, who admittedly killed n mnn In Michigan and carried the body to California by motor cnr, Insisted he was not sorry for what he had done as he awaited the arrival of authorities from the enstern state. "I'd have done it again." said the 2P-year-old "flying bandit" as he told of the fight that led to the death of Robert Brown, 24, of Kalamazoo, "and if I hadn't, somebody e!se would have." Frechette, who told Capt. Joseph Blake of the state highway patrol Brown had boasted of intimacies with many women, Including the accused slayer's "girl," apparently suffered no nervousness at any time after the shooting. He even went to a dance at Salt Lake City, leaving the machine with its cargo of death on the street nearby. H* told of holding up two drug stores and a restaurant in Denver for "expense money." He brought three passengers from Salt Lake City, chatting with them and ploying the car radio. Even on the night of the slaying, Frechette told Captain Blake, he went to a movie and spent the night in Kalamazoo. Frechette's need for money led to his airest. At Elko, Nevada, he sent a telegram to Brown's father, Roy Brown, in Kalamazoo, Mich., signing It "Robert" and asking him to forward $50. The father turned the message over to police, who notified California authorities. When Frechette drove up to the California state line checking station Wednesday midnight, an officer discovered Brown's body in the trunk. £AMPA DA&t NEWS, NEW YORK, Feb. 8.

GiRL FAINTS (Continued from cage l.) ney, Parsons testified he would not say the bulht "probably" was fired from the exhibit. The weapon was recovered near Franklin, Robert-ion county, Jim vlartin, a brother-in-law of Clarence Brown, who escaped jail with Stalcup, testified yesterday the gun was left at his home by the men. 3e said he threw the weapon away, ;hat it became rusty during rain aefore he was asked to recover it by Sheriff w. A. Nickelson of Robertson countjy. Parsons said he had to clean rust from one chamber and the barrel before he could fire the gun safely to make tests. Mrs. DeLea Vicars, ill at Pa.mpa- wspital, was able to be in a wheel hair yesterday. Livestock experts say dairy cattle will produce more milk in winter if given fresh warm water at requent and regular intervals only a part of the woman's face. "Now, while the car was there with the ladder did you actually physically touch the ladder your- .self?" he was asked. ,"I did, three times," he said. Attorney General David T. Wil- entz aske'd only one cross-examining question. Didn't Report Find "Did you ever report the matter to the state police?'' "I did not," he said. Hauptmann's attorneys then brought out that the reason he had not reported the matter was because the pictures of the ladder he saw in the newspapers depicted it as extended and, he could not be sure. He added that he did not want "to make a fool of myself." He described the man in the auto this way: "His hair was dark. He had a smooth face, no mustache or beard." He later added the man weighed 130 or 140 pounds, and was about 5 feet, 10 or 11 inches tall and thin-faced. He salcj he thought he had seen a picture of the man some place. He couldn't recall where. Charles J. De Bisschop, contractor of Waterbury, Conn., who gave his opinion late yesterday that the famed "rail 16" of the ladder and a floor board from the attic had no relation—an opinion that dissented with one given by a state experts-produced; a yellow pine sapling in court to show, he said, that such trees have more knots near the base 1 than above. It was • his contention that the attic floor board, from which the state charged rail 16 had been sawn, had fewer knots than the rail. The rail was used as an up- rlgftt in one of the three sections of the ladder. James J. Parber, a New York insurance man, was called by the' state in rebuttal. Auto Accident Described He told of his automobile being in collision with that of Benjamin Heier, defense witness. Heier had testified that He saw Isador Pisch leap from a wall of St. Raymond's cemetery the night of April 2, 1932 at the time the ransom payment was made by Dr. John P. Condon. Q.

NEW YORK, Feb. 8 WP}—The advancement recorded for practically all branches of trade since the turn of the year is carrying with it each week more convincing proofs 'of a general definite revival, Dun & Bradstreet's weekly trade review says. After a brief Interruption attributed entirely to the severe weather conditions prevailing in many parts of the country, "there now 'is more uniformity to the rising trend," the p-rpurv says, with production and distribution about at an even pace, ».n,oui? . M j. lavor sull leans towards the former. "With current developments revealing no Indications of a letup in the improving conditions in agricultural communities or in the constant enlargement of fartory and mercantile pay-rolls," the review said, "preliminary estimates on the volume of spring trade are ranging from 10 to 25 per cent in excess of the 1334 figures, when the selling season was curtailed by the early date on which Easter fell." Dun & Bradstreet's business activity barometer for the first week in February stood at 73.6, or 17. per cent higher than in the sam week lost year. BANK ROBBED NYACK..N-.
