On the War Crimes Commission list, Tadeo Orlando is charged with "mais murder,” torture of civilians, and systematic terrorism in 1941-43 while serving as general of a di vision operating in Slovenia and Pron ffo A. Marazza is charged with “mass murder" and other war crimes while serving as an army major In Slo venia during the same period. Custody Demanded. Yugoslavia announced Friday that she had demanded custody of the two in a message to Rome Decem ber 18 and that Italy had not re plied. The charges in the commis sion against both men were filed by Yugoslavia. A commission explained that such charges were reviewed by a com mittee to determine whether a prima facie case exists. The committee considers only evidence produced by the accusing country, in much the same way that a grand Jury in the United States hears a case before bringing an in dictment. In the case of the two Italians, the committee which reviewed the _ _11__ fAru’QrHpH tVipir names to the commission itself for recording consisted of representa tives of the United States, Britain, Czechoslovakia and Belgium. Outside Jurisdiction. The spokesman explained that the question of surrendering those accused was outside the jurisdiction of the commission itself. And de pended on the country which had custody over them. In Rome, Orlando has stood pat on a statement made in his behalf three weeks ago when he came under fire from Italian Communists. That statement reviewed his record as commander of the grenadiers’ division during the war and, after the Italian armistice, as minister of war charged with reorganization of the Italian army to fight alongside the allies.

Dr. Wynekoop, Freed From Prison at 77, Is Taken to Hospital By the Associated Press CHICAGO, Dec. 29.—Dr. Alice Lindsay Wynekoop, who went to prison 13 year* and 9 months ago for one of Chicago’s most sensational murders, was released yesterday and brought to a hospital here for treatment of heart disease and chronic high blood pressure. The 77-year-old physician had served the minimum of a 25-year sentence for the slaying of her pretty 23-year-old daughter-in-law, Rheta Gardner Wynekoop, Novem ber 21, 1933. The woman, who at her trial re pudiated a statement of guilt and pleaded not guilty, refused to answer yesterday the question sent to her by newsmen at the prison gates: “Did you kill Rheta?” Rheta, daughter of B. H. Gardner, Indianapolis flour merchant, and wife of the physician’s son, Earle, then 27, was found dead on an operating table in the basement surgery of the old Wynekoop man sion in Chicago. Police said a bullet had been fired into her back and heart. The state contended that Dr. Wynekoop had obtained a $10,000 double indemnity life insurance policy on Rheta a short time pre viously then planned the slaying. In repudiating the statement of guilt, Dr. Wynekoop said it had been obtained by police trickery. The woman, then 64 years old, frail and suffering a serious heart ailment, entered the women’s branch of the Illinois State Prison at Dwight, March 29, 1934. At that time she said she did not expect to be alive at the expiration of even the minimum confinement which she was allowed for exemplary be haviour. She left prison in an ambulance with her eldest son, Walker, who brought her to the hospital here.
