ACTOR WILLIAM CILLETTE_ HARTFORD, Conn., April 29 (AP) —William Gillette, veteran actor, died Joday of a pulmonary hemorrhage at the Hartford hospital. Gillette, who was 81, came to the hospital from his Hadlyme' home several weeks ago. It was his second visit to the institution within the past six months. His physician said a severe cold had undermined his health. The venerable actor gained his first fame on the stage as the star of "Sherlock Holmes." His illness started last fall with a cold while he was at his showplace home in Hadlyme, where Gillette had spent many years in virtual seclusion. Gillette's fame was enhanced through his acting in another of his productions, "Secret Service." In the winter of 1935-36, the veteran actor appeared in New York and other eastern cities in a revival of "Three Wise Fools," and was acclaimed .by theater adiences. At that time in a curtain speech in Hartford, Gillette said he hoped to return again to the theater in another revival after "another ten years.'" Citizens Awake to Crime Control, Is Crusader's Opinion CHICAGO, April 29 (/P)—An 85- year old crusader against.crime who was among the first to hang the sobriquet "public enemies" on gangsters, said today the citizenry had "finally awakened" to the necessity for cooperation with peace officers in the war on organized vice. Commending a group of New York men for forming a modern committee of vigilantes to control crime, Frank J. Loesch, active president and creator of the Chicago crime commission and for years a militant combatant of corruption in politics and government, said it was an "ex-^ cellent move in the tight -direction." The aged lawyer, who still believes in putting in a full day at his office and still is an unrelenting foe fo racketeering, said it appeared business men and the law-abiding public had eventually opened their eyes and discovered violent .crime increasing in congested districts. 'If that New York committee really wants to succeed," Loesch said, "it will have to work in conjunction and close harmony with federal agents, city police, and state law enforcing agencies, It should always play the role of an assistant and not try to usurp the powers of others."

J., April 29 (/P) Scientists on a WPA soil inventory project concluded today that agriculture in the United States must "die of its own neglect" within 200 years and "the population follow suit" Unless soil fertility measures are instituted. Using soil samples from 48 states to determine chemical resoures, the WPA workers calculated that nitrogen, vital to plant life, will be exhausted from the soil within years, sulphur will have disappeared by 1962, and "the eventual result will be a China-like famine in the richest country in the world. The soil nutrient losses were blamed on erosion, leaching (the action of water seeping through the earth) harvesting, livestock, burning anc the rapid ovidlzation of organic matter in the Boil. The net annual loss in vital soil elements was set at 65 million tons of nitrogen, 3 million tons of phosphorus, 45 million tons .of .potassium 55.5 'million tons of calcium, 20.5 million tons of magnesium., and.3 mil lion tons of sulphur. BILL HOLD WASHINGTON, April 29 (/P)—Opponents of the Roosevelt court bill expressed confidence today they had the whip hand in the Senate judiciary committee and in the Senate itself. •;:.•• Announcement that Senators McCarran (D-Nev), Hatch (N-NM) and O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) would oppose the measure caused the foes to count a clear majority in the committee.
