Rourk was yesterday re sponsible for a man, arrested for participating in a fight, being held on a-murder charge. Back in 1943 on Sept. 8, when Rouik was serving as a plain clothes member of the force, of ficers from Columbia, S. C., came to Wilmington in search of Abra ham Ravenel, a Negro, who was believed to ha^e murdered James Iron, Negro, of Columbia, by shoot ing him with a shotgun. After the man had died his mur derer had placed him on a railroad track. The body was run over by at least one train before it was found. Although badly mangled there were certain identification marks which enabled the officers to make identification. When the Columbia officers came to Wilmington Detective Rourk was assigned to assist with the search. Trailing their suspect from one poirlt to another, the officers laid their plans to capture the man. When the raid took place it was found Ravenel had left seconds be fore. Sgt. Rourk had forgotten about the case until last Thursday night when Policemen L. E. Culbrith and R. W. Roper brought Ravenel into headquarters to book him for fighting. Almost instantly Sgt. Rourk de clared "That man is wanted for murder in Columbia, S. C.” Events from then on moved swift ly. A telegram wes sent to Colum bia police, who in turn wired back Ravenel was still wanted.

Rourk. own terms. They cor.iidently predicted it will enact the measure into law over President Truman’s veto by the required two-thirds maioritv and three or four votes to snare.

But the debate then went on, although only five sena tors remained on the floor, with Senators Murray (D.-Mont.) and Olin Johnston (D.-S.C.) speaking against the bill. Finally, after 30 hours and 52 minutes—the longest se sion in 20 years—the senate recessed un til 11 a.m. (FST) Monday. Then the debate will start again until the hour of the vote. 2 p.m. (EST). From outside the Chamber, Rep.

Hartley called Mr. Truman’s ar guments “false.” He said soma language the president attacked is not in the bill at all in its final form. He accused the president of sponsoring “misrepresentations, half truths and distortions.” Mr. Truman himself gave no sign that he plans an, further fight to prevent passage of the bill following his busv Fridav when he sent his veto message to a heedless House, called in a dozen senators for a luncheon conference, and took his argu ments to the nation by radio. He was at the baseball game today, watching Washington defeat St. Louis, 5 to 4, when the break in the senate came. The Monday vote will find two senators absent who could have been counted on to support the veto. Senator Wagner (D.-N.Y.), father of the 1935 Labor Rela tions Act which the bill would change, is ill in New York. Sen ator Elbert Thomas (D.-Utah is in Geneva as a delegate to the International Trade Organization and said today he will not be here Taft held that their presence would not change the result.
