Nurses, McDonald and Parks, all agreed that the Sunday Chicago | Tribune picture of O'Connor, was , exactly like White, in that the erect hair standing straight up from his head, and his eyes and chin, resembled perfectly the man they took care of. He was oiuer. and his hair waa gray, but they were unanimous in saying that the Tribune picture and the man they knew as White, resembled each other in every detail. Next move will irobably be for local authorities and Chicago police to check other characteristics of O'Connor with White. If they jibe, a 16 year old manhunt will probably be resumed in Iowa to locate \VhitL-, and verify once and for all if he is O'Connor. Wm. SteU, Wesley, Weds at Livermoie Livermore: The Rev.
