KANSAS CITY, Sept. 22 —Wil liam La Trasse, known to an ear lier generation as one of the most daring and dangerpus train rob bers and outlaws of the west, now a convict in Kansas state prison, wants his freedom again—convinced after thirty-six years of experi ence that crime doesn’t pay. La Trasse is now close to 50 years old. Since he was 14 he has been fighting the law—end, usually, los ing. Now, declaring that he is through with trying to beat the law and insisting that his one ambition is to take up the trade of repairing shoes, which he learned in prison, he has asked for a parole. The state parole board will hear his plea Oct. 11. La Trasse grew up back of the yards in Kansas City, Kan., a young rowdy whose only playground was the street. Kills in Street Fight At 14 he got into his first serious trouble, slugging a man in a street brawl and injuring him so badly that later he died. The boy fled to Texas. • Then, before the year was out, La Trasse was arrested while trying to stage a highway robbery in St. Joseph, Mo. Authorities sent him back here and he was sentenced to the penitentiary for ten years. After he had served seven years of his term La Trasse was released He came back to Kansas City and indulged in a series of holdups and store robberies. Efforts to catch him were futile, however. Then, on Christmas* eve in 1910, La Trasse tied a black handkerchief over his face, took a revolver in his hand and climbed on the rear platform of a Missouri Pacific passenger train that was just en tering the outlying yards in Kan sas City en route for Omaha. Holds Up Passengers He methodically went through the cars, barking “Hands up, every body!” and collecting the money and valuables of the passengers. A trainman tried to interfere and got a bullet in the shoulder. La Trasse then opened a vestibule door and jumped off when the train slowed down at a crossing. Despite his mask, however, he had been recognized, and a few days later he was arrested at his home, and was sentenced to ten to twenty one years in prison. A week later, while he was being held in the Kansas City jail await ing transfer to the penitentiary, a prisoner in his cell feigned illness and asked a jailer to come in and attend to him. When the jailer entered he was slugged and La Trasse and several others escaped. Arrested in Illinois Months later La Trasse bobbed up in Illinois, where he was arrested for highway robbery. Illinois authorities sent him back to Kan sas, and he was lodged in the state prison. This time Kansas managed to keep him locked up until 1915, when he and sou other convicts escaped from prison by hiding under coal cars being taken from the yard For a year La Trasse enjoyed his j freedom. Then he took part in a i holdup in Chicago, was caught and. was sent back to Kansas. This | time Kansas authorities seemed to have got the knack of keeping him behind the bars a little better; they managed to hold on to him until 1921. In that year his mother became seriously ill, and some kindhearted official gave La Trasse permission There is a Prudential Policy TMA/Ijfj/wf X” for every kind of life insurance need. . tut the 11 1 VII iBl %wl $ Modified Life Policy ' S deservedly popular fonts With Change of Rate at End of Three Years WIOE ADAPTABILITY ANNUAL PREMIUM t prudential insurance (Eompamj of America EDWARD D.DUFFIELD Vmidewt HOME OFFICE JfewtrkMJ. j , L % M IHIe HELD UP a PAS9ENQEI2 TRAIN NEAR KANQA7 Crt?

Thrusts SBO,OOO in Gems at Cop, Begs for Arrest Bn United Press CHICAGO, Sept. 22.—Policeman William Sullivan got one of those “surprises of a lifetime” early today when a pretty girl jumped from a taxicab, ran to him, thrust about SBO,OOO worth of jewels into his hands and asked him to arrest her. The girl, he learned after granting the request, was Lois Hyde, a maid in the home of Max J. Mauermann. She had started out at 1 a. m„ she said, to do ‘‘a little stepping.” Before going, she donned about SIOO,OOO worth of Mrs. Mauer mann’s jewels. She went to a saloon, she told the police, and asked for a drink. The bartender told her that unescorted girls were not served drinks there, but that he would take her to a place a block away where they were. While they were walking together and he was admiring one of her diamond rings, she said, a man and woman drove up in an automobile, robbed her of the ring and tie pin, said to be worth SIO,OOO each, and took SSO of her own money. to go to her home for a short visit. La Trasse forgot to come back. Police might not have caught him had he not broken his own long standing rule —“Never tangle with a woman and you’ll beat the law.” He had met, while a fugitive, a Kansas City girl. Falling in love with her, he joined her, her brother, the brother’s wife and two other companions on a trip to the new oil fields near Eldorado, Kansas. There the police discovered the group, hiding in a shack. A gun battle developed when the officers surrounded the place, and one of his companions was shot dead. Then La Trasse stepped to the door of the shack, his hands high above his head, and shouted: “Don’t shoot! There are women in here. Come and get me.” , Since then La Trasse has stayed in prison.

S, DEBTJJILLIONS Europe Payments to War Burden Are Becoming Increasingly Doubtful. B T WILLIAM PHILIP SIMS Scripns-Howard Forelen Editor WASHINGTON, Sept. 22.-Pay ment of $11,000,000, representing the aggregate funded debt wnich Uncle Sam's world war allies -'we him on money borrowed, becomes increasingly doubtful. Few economists, either in Eu rope or the United States, believe Germany will continue to pay rep arations to France, England and the other allies, amounting to some $400,000,000 a year, on an average, for the next fifty-eight years, as provided by the Young plan. Prin cipal and interest total around $23,000,000,000. If Germany kicks over the traces, as she is now threatening to do, France and Italy will not keep up their payments to America and Britain. Britain may be expected to get out of keeping hers to the United States. Torrents of Propaganda Torrents of propaganda in favor either ol a drastic reduction or the complete cancellation ol war tebts have been directed at the United States. Britain, perhaps, has been the leader ot the propagandists. To gether with France and Italy, Britain owes America the bulk o£ the eleven billions. All are perfectly willing to for give Germany a correspondingly large slice of reparations, if we will wipe out their debts to us. An all-round debt cancellation, Europeans believe, would turn money into the channels of com merce, revive trade and lift business out of the dumps. Germany Is Restive Against the somber background of unemployment, industrial crisis and financial difficulties and social un rest, Germany now faces the menace of a fascist group, possibly, the col lapse of the republic. Voters last week deserted the old moderate parties and flocked to the extremes. The German people, becoming restive, are determined to free themselves from the bonds, which they feel the provisions of the treaty of Versailles and post-war settlements to be.
