O'Brien ordered a conference of subordinates and others to get, he said, all the facts relating to the payment to Ritchie. Hie prosecutor, whose felony ease against the four men named by Ritchie M Reuther conspirators threatens to collapse, said he had not been aware of the union's payment of money.

Direct mention of "Ritchie's wife" added a further mysterious element. Never Identified She has never been positively identified.

The check, O'Brien said, was drawn on a $3,500 account che and Ritchie opened in a Chatham, Ont., bank Friday. In the absence of Ritchie, O'Brien earlier admitted he might not have a case to present against Carl Renda, Santo (Sam) Perrone, Clarence Joseph and Peter Lombardo, all of whom Ritchie named as plotters of the assault. City Police Commissioner Donald S. Leonard ordered the lie detector tests of his two men who failed to keep their hands on Ritchie.
