TELLS OF MING SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL Wylie Morgan Leads Phila delphia Police to Where He Left fydy in Ice. i LURED HER AND SISTER Brings Younger Child Back to Few Blocks Within Their Home, By the Associated Press. PHILADELPHIA, February Fur ther details of -the confession in whiclt Wylie (“ITexas”) Morgan admitted hav ing kidnaped, assaulted and killed six ycar-old Lillian Gilmore last Saturday were promised by the police today. The little girl’s body was found last night on the ice-covered banks of Noshamlny creek, near Croydon, Pa., after Morgan had led the detectives to the spot. The prisoner will be arraigned before a magistrate later in the day, charged with murder, kidnaping and felonious assault. Director of Public Safety Cor telyou said that his trial would be rushed. Makes Signed Statement. ( Morgan made a lengthy signetl siatc t ment. the police'said, setting forth in ; detail how he. had lured Lillian and her j sister Dorothy, four, from their home on : the pretext of taking them for an auto mobile ride: how he had taken them to i a vacant lot: how the older girl had ] died during an attack and how he had I taken her body to the isolated spot j twenty miles north of Philadelphia, in the hope that it would not he discov ered. After laying Lillian's body along the bank of the stream he told the police that he had returned to the city with Dorothy and put her out of the car within a few blocks of her home. Morgan, who was said formerly to have lived at Maud, Tex., confessed after thirty-six hours of grilling, and after he had been identified the second time by Dorothy Gilmore. A few min j utes later he was guiding the police to | the spot where he had hidden Lillian's body. Pathetic Scene at Home. There was a pathetic scene as the hearse bearing the body drew up in front of the Gilmore homo. The child was a favorite in the neighborhood, and j it appeared that all her friends and ao- I qualntances -were at the house. Most of them were in tears. Inside Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gilmore, the parents, sat with their oilier five children and a I number of friends who had been with I them, almost constantly since the chil dren disappeared. As the little oaken ' coffin was carried into the house the i mother collapsed. j ‘‘l am glad they found her." Mrs. Gil | more said later. “It would have jn-en I terrible to think that my little one was i alive at some place, perhaps in need of j help which we would be unable to give | her. When Dorothy came home and I said that Lillian had been left on the I ice and was dead, we feared the worst, j but still had hopes that she would be j found alive." jCHICAGOVOTINGTOOAY | ON PARTY CANDIDATES » - !

LONDON, February 27.—Egyptolo gists. asked for an explanation of the appearance of the heretical Aten insignia on Tutankhamen’s throne, admit that It is a matter difficult of ■ explanation, but suggest that itj study may lead to a clearer concep tion of what tlie Aten heresy was. “The connection between the Aten and the Amen beliefs is very ob scure.” said Dr. Hall of the British Museum, “and we really -know very little of the heresy. Moreover, inves tigations of the Egyptian religious faiths are continually met with con tradictions. The Egyptians were not logical and were, quite capable of ac cepting simultaneously apparently an tagonistic beliefs.” It is also suggested that an ex planation may be simply that the throne was constructed while Tut ankhamen was still a heretic himself THE difference in favor of the big, strong, tractive and rut ! proof Goodyear Cord | Truck Tire is all the dif ference between make* shift and development.
