HEAVILY ARMED BANDIT GANG STEALS TWO BIG AUTOS AT GARAGE, KIDNAPS EMPLOYES Gunmen, Believed Planning Major Crime, Free Pair of Captives Near Nora; Third Man Left Bound at North Side Firm. MACHINE GUN IS AMONG WEAPONS _ ‘We Don’t Want Any Money,’ Says Leader of Outfit, ‘All We Need Is a Couple of Good Cars to Use.’ Kidnaping two employes and binding a third, four heavily armed bandits early today stole two large automo biles from the Thirtieth Street garage, 36 West Thirtieth street, and fled north on Road 31, after freeing their two captives about a mile north of Nora. Information gathered by police following a holdup of a man and girl Sunday night on West Washington street, near Lyndhurst drive, leads to a belief that the bandits in both cases planned some major crime. The men in the holdup Sunday night had a large auto mobile with license plates corresponding to those of a car stolen in Chicago. NEEDY RELIEF PLAN STUDIED M'Nutt May Combine Poor Aid, Penal Affairs. Penal Affairs. BY DANIEL M. KIDNEY Plan to combine state admin istration of unemployment relief k with that of penal affairs under supervision of secretary in the Gov ernor’s office was being considered today by Governor-Elect Paul V. McNutt. The idea, advanced by McNutt, grew out of information obtained at his conference Tuesday with Governor Harry G. Leslie. Leslie had Dr. John H. Hewitt, state unemployment relief director, explain what is being done now. Pleas Greenlee, McNutt’s secretary, also attended the conference. Later he and the governor-elect evolved the idea of combining the offices as an economy move. Hewitt and a secretary handle the unemployment relief under the Les lie administration, while Gaylord Morton, secretary to Leslie, and an aid of Morton’s handle penal affairs. These include pardons and paroles formerly handled by the state par don board, which was abolished. To combine the two positions would cut costs in half, it was de clared. Jay White, South Bend, has been mentioned prominently as a leading contender for the position under the McNutt regime. Combining economy with effi ciency will be the goal of the new administration the Governor-elect told members of the state budget committee before they started on their tour of state institutions Tues day.

ILLINOIS AIDS KIDNAP HUNT Rensselaer Sheriff Fails to Unearth Clew in Search for Girl, 4. By United Press RENSSELAER, Ind., Nov. 30. Aid of Illinois police was enlisted by Sheriff Tone Kanne today as he intensified his hunt for Patricia Pearl Tripp, 4, snatched from her grandmother’s farm home near here Monday night by a kidnaper. Failing to unearth a single clew in a trip Tuesday toward Gary and Chicago, searching for the automo bile in which the abductor escaped, Kanne said that today he would go to Kankakee, 111., and northward from there. August Johnson, and his wife, liv ing in Porter county, paternal grandparents of the girl, may be re questioned today, Kanne said. t Deny Knowledge of Affair Johnson protested vigorously when Mr. and Mrs. Hamlin Smith, ma ternal grandparents of the victim and her guardians, adopted her after her parents died. In previous questioning, both Johnson and his wife have professed ignorance of the abduction, Kanne said. Since a few hours after the kid naper, a tall, swarthy, foreign ap pearing man, seized the child after entering the Smith home on a ruse, roads leading northward from Rens selaer have been patrolled. Kanne and Mrs. Smith were of the opinion, however, that the child was transferred to another machine soon after the abductor sped away from the house, and that she is be ing held unharmed not far distant from Rensselaer. No Note Is Received “I’m sure that Patricia Pearl will not be hurt,” Mrs. Smith said as she regained her composure. “I feel sure that the man who took her, although he handled her roughly as he fled from here, will not injure her.” Failure of the kidnaper to send a note demanding ransom for return of the girl strengthened a belief held by both Kanne and the Smiths that the kidnaping was for an other purpose.

BY SANDOR S. KLEIN United Press Staff Correspondent FEDERAL COURT ROOM, NEW YORK, Nov. 30. —Details of Con rad Mann’s business relationship with Bernard C. McGuire, alleged lottery promoter, were related in federal court today by Eugene J. Balsiger, auditor of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. Balsiger, a bald-headed, round faced man, was the first witness in the government's case against Mann, head of the Eagles; Frank E. Hering, editor of the Eagles mag azine; McGuire and his aid, Ray mond Walsh, all charged with ship ment of lottery tickets in violation of interstate commerce, and con spiracy. Louis Mead Treadwell, youthful prosecutor, first brought out that Mann, as head of the Eagles bazar department, was empowered to make contracts for the operation of all fund-raising schemes by the aeries, or local lodges. Contract With Herring Treadwell read to the jury the contract Mann had with the Eagles to head the bazar department. One section specified that Mann was to receive as his personal share, 40 per cent of the net profits from the var ious fund-drawing affairs conducted by the aeries. Treadwell also established that Mann had a contract with Hering, in which the former agreed “in con sideration of services and asistance in the conduct and management” of the bazar department to pay Her ing one-third of Mann’s share of the net profits. Treadwell introduced a supple mentary contract between Mann and the Eagles, specifying that lo cal aeries could enter into agree ments with outside parties, provided Mann received 50 per cent of the net profits. Balsiger testified that Mann told him he had met McGuire in Chicago early in December, 1930. Told of Moose Deal “He said he had met McGuire in Chicago and that McGuire told him he had just closed a ‘deal’ with the Loyal Order of Moose and tried to interest him in the venture,” Balsiger said. "McGuire detailed to him a legal way of selling the tickets.” Balsiger said McGuire had a con tract for Mann’s signature, but that it was not signed until the follow ing morning after Clyde Taylor, Kansas City lawyer, was called into the conference. The prosecutor then placed in evi dence the contract. The agreement authorized Mc- Guire to conduct and operate enter prises for raising funds for the Eagles, to use Mann's name in the establishment of credit and speci fied that Mann was to furnish a full list of the Eagles’ membership to McGuire. Say Profits Divided Treadwell Tuesday characterized the list as a “sucker list.” McGuire agreed to supply in writing full details of any enter prise he planned to conduct for the Eagles, according to the con tract. The contract called for an establishment of a joint bank ac count for McGuire and Mann. Mann and McGuire, the contract specified, were to divide equally net profits from the enterprises. They w T ere equally liable for any losses that might be incurred. Bright Spots Bt United Press R. G.

HOME EDITION PRICE TWO CENTS Outside Marion County, 3 Cents Speaker Will Carry Out Plan for House Vote ofi First Day. SENTIMENT IS SHIFTING Two-Thirds Majority Is Required for Victory of Measure. BY WILLIAM F. KERBY (Conyright, 1932. bv United Press* . United Press Staff Corresnondent WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.—Demo cratic leaders charged by Speaker John N. Garner with conducting a ’canvass of the house to determine prohibition repeal sentiment have found indications in the survey, thus far, that a repeal resolution would pass if brought to a vote next Monday. Later. Speaker Garner announced he “didn't see any reason” why the repeal resolution should not now be brought up for action on Monday, the first day of the new session. Members conducting the poll told the United Pres today that they be lieve 275 votes could be secured for outright repeal. It was anticipated there would be enough absentees to lower the two-thirds majority re quirement of 287 votes which would apply if the full house were present. One of the party leaders' said the poll showed house sentiment shift ing toward outright repeal among representative members from both north and south. They reported that while many congressmen still are out of the city, the information received in inquiries Tuesday and today Indicate there will be 150 Democratic repeal votes and 125 from the Republicans. The Vice President-Elect declined to predict passage of the repeal amendment by the necessary two thirds vote, but insisted that it must be acted upon in any event. Carry Out Program By United Press WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.—Legis lation to repeal the eighteenth amendment will be started on its way through congress Monday de spite opposition of drys. “My present intention is to go right ahead along the schedule out lined,” Speaker John N. Garner said today. That schedule contemplated the introduction, brief discussion and a roll call vote before adjournment Monday night on Gamer’s repeal amendment. A two-thirds vote is required. Meanwhile, former Attorney-Gen eral A. M:tchell Palmer, who has been co-operating with Garner at his invitation, is completing the sup plemental bill to set up convention machinery in the various states for ratification of the amendment. Palmer has prepared a brief on legal aspects of his convention plan, which he is forwarding today to • tvery senator and congressman with a letter urging speedy action in order to prevent a peiiod of wholesale nullification pending final action by the states. Urge Minimum of Delay The Garner-Palmer plan contem plates that following passage of the repeal amendment by the house, the supplemental measure will be introduced immediately, and passed with the minimum of delay. This measure, proceeding on the theory that amending the Consti tution wholly is a federal province, proposes to submit the reneal reso lution to conventions; establishes the procedure in the nomination and election of delegates to the conventions, fixes the date for the conventions and the time when the federal government shall be in formed of the result. Early Conventions Provided Although the amendment fixes seven years as a limit within which states may ratify, the same limit as the original prohibition amend ment, the supplemental bill will specify that conventions be held within three months after congress has acted. The measure will be so written that die-hard prohibitionist Gov ernors will be unable to block the will of congress in the assembling of state conventions. The measure will in effect author ize a great national election on the same day, whereby voters will have the opportunity of voting direct on the question of abolishing national prohibition. ‘ F A S T _ wXGON’TH R 0 UGH Emergency Car to Remain in Police Garage, Chief Announces.
