MAN SHOOTS WOMAN; TAKES
OWN LIFE HEAT BLAMED
Mrs. Jos. Hoar, 950 Marquette rd.,
was packing a lunch to take to her
husband at the Pennsylvania railroad
shows when a neighbor rushed in,
shot her three times and then killed
himself while she watched him from
her bed of blood on the floor.
The neighbor was Chas. Rabe, 94S

Ashland car line. Police believe he
was, driven mad by the heat.

recover, but the bullet Rabe put in

don't know why he did it"
POLICE BELIEVE THEY HAVE
SLAYER OF BROR JOHNSON
The police believe they have cap
tured the slayer of Policeman Bror
Johnson, who was shot down when
he interrupted the robbing of the
Cook Tourist Agency, Jackson blvd.,
near State st, months ago.
John Glowacki, alias Frank Hayes,
alias "The Rabbit," was arrested last
night by Policeman John Slupikow
ski, who has been looking for him
for 14 years.
Fourteen years ago a saloonkeep
er was murdered, and Slupikowski
believed "The Rabbit" did the job.
He has never ceased to look for him,
and last night came his chance.
A man talked too much in a sa
loon near Noble and Ingraham sts.,
near th&-scene of the murder 14 years
ago. Someone telephoned Slupi
kowski that the talkative one was
"The Rabbit" put up a stiff fight
"This is a tip-off," he complained.
"No copper on earth could get me
without a tip-off."
At the North av. station he refused
to give his name. It was found that
his hair was dyed brown.
Police believed Glowacki was in
partnership with John Rudnick, gun
man who was killed by Policeman
Coley Madden, May 9.
The police seem confident that
either Rundick or Glowacki slayed
Policeman Johnson. They are look
ing for "Goldie," the blond woman
who was with the slayer of Johnson
when the policeman was shot down.
"Goldie," they say, was a friend of
both Rundick and Glowacki.
