A jury of six men and six women found Marsh innocent of killing Vernon Anderson, 28-year-old husband of Mrs. Katherme '/Kit Anderson, even though he had confessed to the charge.

Parts oi Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississipoi and Louisiana were blanketed with white. Memphis ·A as burdened with 11 inches of snow and parts of western Tennessee reported more. Southern California was so warm and dry that drought threatened urigation projects, and some communities rationed water. In the Midwest, little relief was promised from cold which ate deeply into already short supplies of fuel and gas for heating. In dustrial plants cut or halted production at some cities. Thermometers in Chicago registered 10 degrees below zero, the same as at Fairbanks, Alaska. It was the coldest Chicago temperature in three years. Snow began falling last night in a 200-mile wide belt from Dal- ed toward Georgia and the Carolines but was expected to diminish. Flight service was suspended at Memphis and Nashville. The Chicago Weather Bureau piomised that temperatures would warm up throughout the Midwest beginning tomorrow. Until then, however, the mercury was due to stay near zero with the intense cold continuing to eat up oil and gas which was being rationed in many communities.
