SCRJPPS - HOWARD \ BYRD HINTS HE MAY DO BACK TO ANTARCTIC South Pole Hero Praised by Hoover, Given Medal " for Exploits. 'BITTEN BY POLAR BUG’ Need of Weather Stations for Forecasting Cited by Explorer. Bu United Press WASHINGTON, June 20.—‘Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd inti mated a desire to return to the Antarctic continent when he came here today to receive from Presi dent Hoover a special gold medal of the National Geogrpahic Society for his south polar explorations. Discussing his expedition today after arrival from New York with his Antarctic party, Byrd said much remained to be done in the south polar area. He suggested it even tually would be necessary to es tablish weather stations there and perhaps airports to provide an aerial short-cut between the old word and the new. “Once you get the Antarctic bug, it is hard to get it out of your j system.’’ Byrd said he has claimed for the United States a vast area lying in the Ross quadrant east of the Ross sea beyond a small British claim known as King Edward VII land. The west shore of the Ross sea all is claimed by the British inland from 200 to 500 miles. Lauded by Hoover The climax of Byrd's daytime schedule here today was when he received the congratulations of President Hoover at the White House for his achievements. He arrived at the White House shortly before noon to receive a round of cheers from a crowd of nearly 2,000 people which waited outside the executive mansion when the cars carrying the explorer and his party drove up. Work was suspended in the executive offices and clerks gath ered in the lobby to see. Byrd. At his entrance they applauded loudly, an unusual occurrence in a place usually given to solemn conferences on state matters. Byrd smiled shyly in acknowledging the greeting. After a few minutes with Mr. Hoover, the Byrd party went to the south grounds of the White House where they were photographed with the President. To Visit Bennett Grave During the afternoon Byrd was to visit the navy department and go to Arlington national cemetery to lay wreaths upon the graves of Floyd Bennett, his pilot in his North Pole flight, and Admirals Peary and Wilkes, Polar explorers. The admiral was insistant upon the importance of further develop ment of the Antarctic. He rated geological work among the most important, explaining there are minerals of value in the scarcely explored regions. Byrd said the real value of the land discovered is undetermined, but there is no question it will be “enormous.” Geological exploration revealed -the area once was tropical, he said. Most valuable accomplishments of the expedition, in his opinion, were with regard to weather and the geological formation. Important for Forecast “The region around the pole sup plies the most important weather forecasting data we have, he said. “It might be called the point pf origin for storms and blizzards. The data the weather man with our ex pedition gathered will be invaluable. The two from the United States weather bureau kept up their ob servations every night even when the temperature reached 70 degrees below zero.” “Sooner or later permanent weather stations must be estab lished in the Antarctic if we are to have accurate forecastings.” Referring to the possibility of establishing a regular air route over the South Pole, the explorer intimated it is not imminent but it feasible. \ “Our radio experimenter-demon strated the value of the shrrt wave for long distance sending,” he said. “Hansen, our radio man from the navy laboratory, use to go out five miles from camp with the ther mometer at 60 below and make his observations. "There may be valuable mineral deposits in the mountain ranges which we discovered in Marie Byrd land. Further exploration will have to determine that.” LAY CORNER STONE AT CITY AIR FIELD Louis Brandt of Works Board Wields Trowel at Ceremony.

Mrs. Schroeder declared to in vestigators she does not know her husband’s whereabouts, but refused to make the statement under oath when warned of the penalties of perjury, investigators declare.

With this renewed questioning of Mrs. Schroeder scheduled for today, Sheriff Winkler, Deputy Sheriff Fred Fox, Detective John Stump and Deputy Prosecutor George Eg gleston of Indianapolis, were hope ful clews they have will result in locating Schroeder.

Sams, Elkhart, Ind., brother-in-law of the missing man,, believes his brother will appear within a short time, he indicated to investigators.

NAB FUGITIVE FROM ASYLUM AS MAD KILLER Madman Puts Up Fierce Battle When Captured in Philadelphia. RAVES OF BLONDE GIRL Ordered Sent to New York for Questioning in Maniac Murders. Bit t'nited Press PHILADELPHIA, Pa., June 20. Joseph Clarke, 34-year-old escaped inmate of the Creedmore (N. Y.) hospital for the insane, was arrest ed here today and, after a brief hearing, ordered sent to New York as a suspect in the “maniac mur ders” of Queens, Long Island. He was traced through a letter which had been received some days ago by F. M. Clarke, 9321 Two hun dred fifth street, Queens Village, Long Island. At almost the time Clarke was taken Into custody today John Mcszynski, brother of Joseph Mos zynski, the first man murdered by the Queens mad man, received a special delivery letter at his home here, threatening him with death. While Clarke was in court here, word came that another suspect in the Queens murder cases had been arrested in Newark, N. J. He an swered the description of an escaped inmate of the Kings Park hospital for the insane, New. York. Difference in Descriptions Clarke’s description differed con siderably from that given by the girl companions, witnesses of both the Moszynski and Noel Sowley killings, the latter the second man killed by the Queens’ lunatic. He was about 5 feet 7 inches tall, which was the height given for the Sowley-Moszynski murder sus pect, but was much heavier. Clarke weighed about 170, while the weight of the man sought had been esti mated at about 140. Clarke is said to have escaped from the Creedmore hospital June 3. He told police he had been an inmate of the hospital sixteen years. His mother, Mrs. Louise Clarke, is said to live at 338 Forty-first street, "Brooklyn, N. Y. Letters Name Film Stars Officers found On Clarke a num ber of letters bearing some simi larity to those figuring in the Queens murders. Going to his room they searched it and found more than 200 mimeo graphed letters,. all dated at Brook lyn, N. Y., and addressed to promi nent persons. The letters were largely incoherent. They mentioned such people as Mae Murray, Gilda Gray, Earl Car roll, Helen Morgan, Ann Penning ton, George Cohan, Fred Stone, Marlon Davies, Buster Collier, Will Rogers, Greta Garbo, Bessie Love, Rudy Vallee, George Olsen, Ted Lewis and Jack Johnson, the for mer heavyweight champion. Raves About Blonde Nurse Other letters mentioned, or were to, inmates of the Creedmore hos pital. A number of them mentioned the “blonde nurse” or the “big blonde nurse” as having a “strange influence” over him. Clarke mumbled of a “blonde nurse,” such as had been mentioned in the correspondence which the maniac carried on with the public through a New York newspaper after two killings had occurred in secluded parts of Queens. Among his effects were papers mentioning almost a score of prom inent persons, a notable proportion of them blonde movie actresses. The special delivery letter to John Moszynski was much the same in tone as some of the maniac’s com munications. It said that he was “next on the list” and ordered him leave the “valuable papers” in the lavatory of the Broad street station of the Pennsylvania station in Philadelphia or “death will follow.” Fights to Avoid Arrest The man who wrote to the New York Evening Journal of the killings was obsessed with the problem of recovering some valuable papers and apparently also was imbued with an idea of protecting womanhood. Clarke was arrested on Tenth street here by Philadelphia officers who had been assisted by police from New York in tracing him. “You won’t take me back,” he screamed as the officers seized him. He fought viciously and had to be overpowered. WHEAT JJOTTOM OUT Futures Off 3 Cents; Lows of 1914 Reached. Bu United Press CHICAGO, June 20.

FOUND DEAD IN AUTO Racketeer’s Body in Car Teetering on Edge of Pit of Water. Bit United Press CHICAGO, 'June 20.—Gangland gunmen took another of their ene mies “for a ride’” today, while Iron Man John Alcock, new police com missioner, was organizing his forces for a major drive on crime. The victim was Lorenza Juliano, chief of a south side alcohol gang, who has troubled police for several years. His murder was the first in the metropolis since the assassination of Alfred J. Lingle, Chicago Tribune reporter, which resulted In an un precedented public clamor, and the resignation of two police officials. Juliano’s body was found in a small sedan which teetered on the brink of a clay pit at One hundred twenty-third street and California avenue, not far from the scene of his operations. The gangster apparently had been killed elsewhere, the body wrapped in burlap, a sack drawn over the head and the whole bundle bound with wire. From marks along the pit bank police surmised that Juliano’s body had been placed at the wheel of the sedan, the car started in low gear and directed toward the clay pit that was filled with water. Open Crime Clearing House The plans apparently went awry for the sedan stopped on the brink, when discovered by an employe of a plant nearby shortly before noon. Juliano’s record as a racketeer ex tends back to the time when the homes of Senator Charles S. Deneen and State’s Attorney John A. Swan son were bombed just before elec tion. At that time a quantity of dyna mite and materials for making bombs were found in Juliano’s home and he was held for some time as a suspect in the bombing, but even tually was freed. A central clearing house for the various investigations into the murder of Lingle was opened in the loop today. “Soft Jobs” Are Lost This is the first time any Chicago crime has been accorded such co ordinated attention of the city’s law enforcement agencies. All clews to the crime and all reports of evi dence, no matter how meager, are to be sent direct to the clearing house, whose telephone number was published today in all the news papers. The bureau is in the Methodist Temple bu lding and is in charge of Charles Rathburn, the assistant state's attorney who has been as signed to the case. Witnesses to the murder will be brought to the clearing house in stead of police stations for ques tioning by representatives of the police, state, county and federal men working on the case. Police officers by the hundreds were mustered out of “unnecessary” jobs in the detective bureau, put in uni form and sent to the front lines to day in Chicago’s warfare against gangland. Go Back to Beats •As the drastic reorganization com mands of Commissioner Alcock, new commissioner of police, were carried out. the detective bureau staff was reduced from 900 to 200 men. The 700 policemen affected by the cut were ordered to patrol beats in various sections of the city. In the offing was another huge shift in forces and the transfer of 1,500 plainclothes officers to patrol duty was expected to take place within the next few days. Alcock believes the only way of coping with crime and vice is to have uniformed policemen making the rounds. YOUTH CHARGED WITH ACCOSTING WOMEN Captured by Husband as He Al legedly Attempts Attack.
