CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, June 8. (/P)—Pessimistic crop reports from spring wheat territory did much to rally prices late today, and almost ever- KILLERS AND ROBBERS HUNTED IN RIVER BOTTOMS ST. PETER, Minn*, June 8 M 5 )— Machine gunners beat through brush and swamps in the Minnesota rivei bottoms today in a hectic search for a crazed Karpis-Barker gangster and 13 other escaped Inmates if the criminally insane ward of the St. Peter state insane asylum. The mobster, Lawrence de Vol lonvicted bank robber and murder -uspect, helped engineer the spectacular break last night. Slugging ive armed guards, 1C prisoners fled >ut two promptly were caught. Al least, six of the convicts—most of the branded killers or robbers —got away from the prison grounds n a commandeered automobile. Several others were reported picked up n another machine but authorities concentrated their efforts in the •iver flats. The Minnesota river skirts the asylum. Dense woods provided ready cover. Participating in the search were 35 members of a machine company of the 205th infantry, called out by iovernor Floyd B. Olson. Fifteen of the felons trapped five _uards in the second floor criminal ward, beat them into submission with chair legs, locked them in a oom, and slid down'a fire hose to ,he ground. They then scaled n 10- !oot steel wall. The delivery was discovered by a 'irst-floor guard. Arthur Danielson. Before he could act, the last of the prisoners, Frank Gibson, former Texan and murder suspect, fled. The beaten guards, forbidden by asylum rules to carry arms, were quickly subdued when inmates swung Lhe chair legs. None was seriously injured. Five persons, apparently by pre- arrungement, simultaneously approached the guards individually. After the guards had been seized, the other criminals surged from the ward, seized, tools from a supply room to pry loose a barred window and a fire hose on which to descend. Warned by an alarm, residents of the area barricaded their homes against invasion. Authorities expected the fugitives to try to steal automobiles ami) obtain clothing since all were without coats or hats when they fled. De Vol was transferred last December from Stillwater state prison, where he was serving a life sentence as a participant in the $200.000 daylight robbery of the Third Northwestern National bank in Minneapolis in 1932. The holdup brought death to three persons, including two policemen. Among the other fugitives was another lifer brought to the asylum from Stillwater, Albert (Scarface) Sareko, sentenced for the slaying of Peter Hoffman in a Minneapolis theater holdup November 22, 1930. Others who escaped included Tom de Largo, alias Holloway, 24, rober believed by officials to have been a leader in the break; Adolph Wai- worth, 35; Tony T. Smith, 36; Wilburt Jorissen, 23, and Donald Reader, a Missourian, all listed as rob- iers; Walter Horstein, 24, admitted on a second degree murder charge; Percy Kenosha, 20, an Indian com- AUS'l'IN, June 8 (/P)—School districts in some instances might profitably go into the oil drilling business, in the opinion of State Representative Augustine Celaya of Brownsville, chairman of the house hot oil investigation committed. Admitting he was not certain it would be practical for school districts to drill their own properties, Celaya suggested that persons Interested in raising the pay of teachers to a "fair level" should give the matter serious consideration. "In probably many Instances, school districts have -property In proven oil territory," Celaya said. When there Is oil on both sides of them they are not taking a chance in the sinking of a well. Why shouldn't they do their own drilling and receiving all the profits instead of leasing to an operator and gelling only one-eighth royalty? "School teachers now are grossly underpaid, and people can't pay any more of their taxes. This Idea if a practical plan of operation can be worked out, might solve the problem in some cases. "The work of course should be limited to the proven oil areas. There would be too many chances for loss in 'wildcatting.'" Celaya reiterated his opposition to the state going- into the oil business or "for that matter into the liquor business or any other business." "If the state should take over drilling on state lands." he said "it would mean a horde of employees on state payroll. It is only natural that employees of state departments engage in politics In an effort to perpetuate their jobs. We must remain on guard against the building up of vast political machines." J. H. Walker, retiring land commissioner, evoked considerable comment a short time ago with a suggestion that the state should consider the feasibility of doing its own drilling on prison properties. Wlalkei'i who was connected with the prison system for a time, said the system had sufficient convict labor to carry on much of the drilling operations. He expressed the opinion that some of the prison lands were un- derlaid with oil and that 'sufficient oil possibly would be found to maintain the system. (Continued Prom Page 1) allow it.

CLEVELAND, June 8 (AF) — Texas Republicans decided today to cast their 25 votes for Governor Alf M. Landon of Kansas as presidential nominee "on the first and other ballots." Standing and shouting, the Texas caucus, unanimously Instructed R. B. Creager, Texas national committeeman, to support the Kansan. At Creager's suggestion, the caucus deferred action on a vice-presidential candidate. The Landon action was suggested by H. E. Exum of Amarillo, who termed him the best available man "to fill the bill." The clelegrallon re-elected Creager and Mrs. Lena Day More of Brownsville, national committeemen. Orvill Bullington of Wichita! Palls was selected the Texas member of the important platform committee. Other choices: Credential, L. J.
