CRIMINAL COURT BUILDING,
CHICAGO. 111., September 10—Sen
tences of life imprisonment for the
murder of 14-year-old Robert Franks
and 99 years’ imprisonment for kid
naping the boy were meted out to
day to Nathan F. Leopold, jr., and :
Richard Loeb by Judge John R. !
Caverly. The youth of the defend- j
ants, 18 and 19 years, was all that j
saved them from the noose. The i
separate sentences were passed to j
meet legal technicalities.
Judge Caverly said no minor ever I
had been sentenced to death in Illinois j
on a plea of guilty, adding that such J
action was contrary to all the tend
ency of criminal law.
“The court finds no mitigation in
the crime itself in the defendants’
personalities or their antecedents,’’
Judge Caverly said. He then ac
cepted “full responsibility for declin
ing” to impose the death penalty on '
persons who are not of full age.
C«o to Prison Today.
At the office of the county sheriff I
In the Criminal Courts Building it j
was first announced that Leopold I
and Loeb would not be sCSrted for !
Joliet today, but probably would be
held in the local jail until Friday.
There was, however, a persistent
rumor that the start would be made
within a few hours, and in the midst
of conflicting reports Hheriff Hoff
man definitely announced that Leo
pold and Loeb would be taken to
Joliet penitentiary within an hour.
Despite Sheriff Hoffman's announce- .
ment, uncertainty continued as to
when the boys would start for Joliet,
and it appeared that several hours I
might elapse before the necessary j
legal papers would be executed. j
Crowd Watches Jail.
An immense crowd gathered about I
the entrance of the Cook Countv j
Jail when the decision became known.
A score of motor cycle policemen, :
lined up on both sides of the street,
held the people in check. The crowd
was silent and merely stood a'bout,
watching the jail doors.
Finally the crowd was convinced
that it would see nothing and it dis
solved. Meanwhile Sheriff Hoffman’s
office was busy preparing commit
ment papers for the warden of the
Joliet penitentiary.
State’s Attorney Crowe said that I'
the boys probably would not start !,
for Joliet before 2 p.m. Should it I ’
take more time to execute the papers j
be said that the start would not be \ 1
made before 4 p.m.
The sheriff said that within a few i
hours after the sentencing he had re
ceived several anonymous telephone
warnings that preparations were being
made to waylay the prisoners and their 1
ei- cor I en route to the penitentiary.
Order (iiMid MraU,
Leopold and Loeb ordered steaks
two inches thick, with every side
dish they could think of. for their
dinner, the sheriff said.
It may be the last {rood meal we
will get in our lives,” they said.
Judge Caverly remained in his
chambers after delivering his sen
tence for about three-cjuarters of an
hour. AN hen he left it was by a pri
vate corridor and elevator. He was
again surrounded by guards and went
away from the building so swiftly
that onlookers in the street were not
aware of his identity.
Not a muscle moved in Leopold’s
face as Judge Caverly indicated life
Imprisonment was to be his fate.
*Loeb rapidly blinked his eyelids, gulp
ed almost unnoticeably and slightly
contracted his lips. Net a portion of
their bodies moved. Court was *n
session but ten minutes.
“The testimony has been detailed
and elaborate, and has been given
such wide publicity that it would be
useless to repeat any now,” said Judge
Caverly. "Hut the court feels it his
duty to say that the defendants are
abnormal, otherwise they would
not have cdtnmitted the < rime.”
"Judgment cannot be affected by
the tests brought into the record,”
said Judge Caverly.
“The crime was abhorrent, although
there was no abuse of body.
Hold* Pair Abnormal.
"It would have been the path of
least resistance to impose the ex
treme penalty of the law," said the
gray-haired judge in his decision.
"In choosing imprisonment Instead of
death, the court Is moved chiefly by
the age of the defendants, boys of 18
and 19 years.
"It is not for the court to say that
ho will not in any case enforce cap
ital punishment, but he believes it is
within his province to decline to im
pose the sentence of death on per
sons who are not of full age.
“This determination appears to be
in accordance with the progress of
criminal law all over the world and
to the dictates of enlightenment of
humanity. More than that, it seems
to be in accordance with the prece
dents in this State. The records of
Illinois know only two cases of
minors who were put to death by
legal process, to which number the
court does not feel-inclined to make
an addition.”
Judge Caverly added that while
life imprisonment “may not strike
the public imagination as forcibly as
would hanging," yet "to the offend
ers, particularly of the type they are,

CHRISTIANIA. September 10
The Spitzbergen expedition, led by
the famous Arctic scientist, Hoel,
has returned after a tour of ex
ceptionally interesting results.
Hoel attributes this year’s mild
Arctic Summer to scanty rain. He
made another interesting discov
ery. that the temperature of the
gulf strean is diminishing. It is
impossible to decide yet, he said,
whether the phenomena Is limited
to this Summer or if a real cool
ing process has begun.
While mapping, the expedition
found that the glaciers of Spitz
bergen were returning from the
coast to the inner country. One
glacier In Vankeylan Bay has re
treated 31* kilometers since 1898,
and King’s glacier, 51 Vfc kilometers

Gen. Wu Pei-Fu has opened a new

According to advices reaching

NO CRITICISM OF DAVIS.
Senator Glass Indignant Over Pub
lication of Private Letter.
Senator Carter Glass expressed in
dignation today over a press dispatch
from Richmond, published in The Star
and other newspapers, in which he was !
made to appear as a critic of John W. !
Davis because of the latter’s "swing
around the circle" in the presidential
campaign.
Senator Glass’ indignation was
aroused in the first place because a
private letter had been given out for
publication, and, secondly, because its
contents had been so twisted as to
place him in a false position. His let
ter was in reply to one from a con
stituent expressing regret that Sen
ator Glass had not been made the
Democratic nominee, and the follow
ing Is the exact language the Vir
ginia Senator used;
"It was certainly providential that
I was not nominated as the candidate
of the party for the presidency, inas
much as I have been ill since return
ing from the convention.
“The nomination of Mr. John W.
Davis was so good an achievement'
that I scarcely hoped it could be
brought about. In my Judgement he
was easily the best furnished man of
them all for the place, and I am grat
ified to know that he is acquitting
himself finely on the stump, although
I am not much of a believer in presi
dential candidates touring the coun
try for votes.** -

Half a dozen such presents arrive

Many of the prince’s feminine ad

10 to 40 such letters come daily from
many parts of the world. The prince,
Capt. Lascelles pointed out, could not

GILLETT VICTORY
OVER WALSH SEEN
Strong Grip’of Coolidge on
Own State Held Reflected
In Primary.
BY G. GOULD LINCOLN.
The selection of Speaker Frederick
H. Gillett by the Republicans of Mas
sachusetts as their candidate for the
senatorial seat now occupied by Sen
ator David I. Walsh, Democrat, was
regarded here today as another evi
dence of the strong grip which Presi
dent Coolidge has on the people of
his own State, and in a more limited
way. of the grip which he has on the
people generally.
Because of the announcements of
Gillett support, first by Frank
Stearns, close personal friend of the
President, and se«K)nd, by William M.
Butler, chairman of the Kepublican
national committee, the Impresslod
was created in Massachusetts that
Mr. Coolidge wanted Gillett nomi
nated.
This, although the President him
self made no statement In regard to
the three-cornered race for the sena
torial nomination, with Louis A. Cool
idgo and Representative Dallinger
competing against Speaker Gillett and
each other.
Leads by 50,000.
A few weeks ago. even 10 days ago.
according to reports from Massachu
setts. the result of the senatorial race
was much in doubt. But the returns
now show Mr. Gillett leading his clos
est opponent by more than 50,000.
While the Speaker has been a Na
tional figure for a number of years
by virtue of his choice to preside
over the House, he has not been
widely known personally In Massa
ehusetts, and both Mr. Coolidge and
Mr. Gillett had been campaigning for
many months for the senatorial nomi
nation.
The Speaker will have his work
cut out for him In the coming con
test with Senator Walsh. But Re
publicans here from the Bay State
are saying today that Mr. Gillett
will be elected notwithstanding the
popularity of Senator Walsh. They
base their prediction on the fact
that the Republican nominee for
Senator this year will have the
pres’lge of the Coolidge national
ticket to aid him—that thousands
of Republicans and others who will
support Coolidge for President will
vote the straight Republican ticket
rather than split their ballots.
Furthermore, they say, now that Gil
lett has been nominated, the people
of Massachusetts will he entirely !
willing to elect to the Senate 1 a man
who is undeniably of senatorial tim
ber and size. They expect the solid
support of Massachusetts Republicans
for the Speaker.
Butler Statement.
Chairman William M. Butler today
issued the following statement in
regard to the Massachusetts pri
mary:
“All available figures from Massa
chusetts. with more than half of all
the precincts reported, show that F
H. Gillet, Speaker of the House of
Representatives, has won the sena
torial nomination by a large margin.
It is gratifying that a stanch sup
porter of President Coolidge. who
has rendered fine public service to
the United States and Massachvjeets.
should be nominated for the United
States Senate.

Couena Is Confident.
Senator Couzens, predicting his
election to the full term in the United
States Senate by at least 30,000 votes
over Federal Judge Arthur J. Tuttle,
his nearest opponent, in a formal
statement to the Associated Press to
day expressed his gratification that
"the unorganized Couzens movement
has beaten the organized anti-Couz
ens movement.”
The short term for the United
States Senate, to fill the vacancy
created by resignation of former
Senator Newberry, and to which Sen
ator Couzens was appointed by Gov.
Groesbeck until the time of the No
vember election this year, also may
have been won by Couzens. Returns
from 1.521 precincts in the State at
noon gave him a lead of 5,791 over
Judge Tuttle for the Republican nom
ination for this office, which will ex
pire next March. The vote stood;
Couzens. 165,308; Hal H. Smith,
24,662: Arthur J. Tuttle, 159.517.

engineering department of the Uni
versity of Michigan, was the only

inated by the Republicans for a third
term by an overwhelming plurality.
With reports from 1.527 precincts the

Prof. Baly and his associates de- j
veloped the theory that the sue- t
cess of the chemical reactions oc- |
curring in the leaves es plants Is ;
due to the fact that immense 1
quantities of energy are absorbed
from the sun's rays.
It has long been believed that
the first reaction which occurs in
a green leaf is the uniting of car
bon dioxide and water to form
formaldehyde. So Prof. Baly ex
posed carbon dioxide and water to
ultra violet rays from a quartz
mercury vapor light. In this way
he was able to form slight traces
of formaldehyde, but he found
that the formaldehyde immedi
ately formed sugar and that the
sugar at the same time was re
transformed into formaldehyde.
The reactions Involved In this
synthesis of sugar, it was pointed
out, require energy hundreds of
times greater than that for any
reaction which has so far been
commercialized.

was planned and directed, the pilots
walked and were immediately stam
peded by brother officers and civilian
employes who had worked and wor
ried for many months as they flew
around the globe.
Maps of the United States were
collected and then they were rushed
up to Gen. Patrick's conference room
where work was begun on getting

been underway when the word was
passed that they were to meet Secre
tary of War Weeks and accompanied

While waiting for Secretary Weeks
| to receive them Gen. Patrick asked
questions of Lieut. Nelson about his
I flight over Baltimore yesterday and
| what he would have done if the motor
I had gone bad over the city instead
lof a good field. Lieut Nelson said he
would have tried to make the river
| and drop there but if not he w-ould
(have to take the first street available.
