Iron-clad censorship has been set:
lip over the Honduran press. Pizzati 1
said, and virtually all the newspapers j
have been closed up or taken over i
by the government.
"I hope to be able to go back to
establish another newspaper and
preach true liberty to the people of
Honduras,” Pizzati said. “I stand for
the re-establishment of a national
press, with real freedom of speech

ell my countrymen should have the
right to vote and participate in their
government. This right is denied them
Pizzati was editor and publisher of
El Pais and El Golpe, formerly lead
ing newspapers in La Ceiba. Both
have been closed because of fiery edi
torial opposition to the Andino ad
ministration. Pizzati now is engaged
in a survey of American newspapers
on behalf of the National Press Asso
ciation of Honduras, which is working
for the establishment of a free press
In that country.
The exiled editor, who is only 25.
said he recognizes in President Andino
"many fine qualities,” but that he is
strongly opposed to his principles of
government and political ideals.
Pizzati fled from Honduras nine
months ago. entering the United
States through New Orleans. He has
visited many newspapers in the South
ern States and is serving as a special
correspondent for La Traduccion. a
Spanish language paper at Tampa,
and for La Prensa.
He is in Washington for an indefi
nite stay and is the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. Elliott Marsden. Pizzati is a
painter by hobby, and Mr. Marsden. a
geologist, is a friend of the editor's
art teacher.

Man Vanishes After Opening
25 Bank Accounts in
Los Angeles.
iy the Associated Press.
LOS ANGELES, May 23.—An unob
trusive, middle-aged little man who
moved quietly through this city's
financial districts, opened 25 bank
accounts aggregating $30,000 in two
days and then vanished, mystified
bankers and detectives said today.
Accounts were opened Monday and
Tuesday in virtually every downtown
bank under the name of Donald Berg
of St. Louis. Wednesday night the
depositor left the hotel where he
had been staying. Nothing has been
heard from him since.
Detective Agency Called in.
The American Bankers’ Association
called on the Burns Detective Agency
to investigate the possibility the man
may have met foul play. The aid of
the Department of Justice also was
Bank tellers said he usually ap
peared with two suit cases, from
which he would produce a $1,000 bill
and two $100 bills. Berg was de

about opening 25 bank accounts, but

the man gave as reference an account

Tentatively Named as Mrs.

Slayer Hunt Continues.
By the Associated Press.
KEENE. N. H., May 23.—State in
vestigators tentatively identified the
victim of a lonely, mountain top
"torch” slaying tonight as the woman
who registered at a Brattleboro. Vt.,
hotel last Tuesday as "Mrs. Grace
Hurley of Boston."
County Solicitor Arthur Olson de
clared he was satisfied the “Mrs. Hur
ley’’ was the victim.
From several sources, he asserted,
he learned that a woman answering
the description of the one who regis
tered at the Hotel Plaza. Brattleboro,
had been seen walking up the moun
' tainside Wednesday.
Fosse May Be Formed.
Olson said he was considering or
1 ganizing a citizens’ posse to comb the
forbidding thickets of the mountain
; on the possibility “the murderer Is
! still lurking In there.”
Attorney General Thomas G.
Cheney, ordered State Investigators
Ralph W. Cosewell and Edward Hayes.
State fingerprint expert, here from
Concord, to aid in the investigation.
From the Worcester. Mass., manu
facturers of the .22 caliber revolver
i discovered near the charred and
broken body of the woman. Olson
said he had learned that the gun
had been one of a batch sold to a
Philadelphia mail order house. He
said police were checking there in
an effort to find the person to whom
| it was sold.
Gun Clue Falls.
Late tonight, however, Edward E.
I Chandlee, secretary-treasurer of the
i Philadelphia mail order house, as
1 serted a thorough search of the com
pany s records had failed to reveal
any trace of the purchaser. He de
| scribed the gun as "cheap, worth
| about to,” and added it had ap
) parently not been sold by mail but
j rather shipped to some distributor.
Olson said he had no idea of the
motive for the slaying.
Meanwhile, from the summit of
the mountain-top search for the
j slaver spread to three States.
