Ossining, N. Y., April 13 The
four gunmen convicted of the murder
of Herman Rosenthal were executed
in Sing Sing prison early today. It
required four shocks to kill "Lefty
Louie." .Two were sufficient for the
others. It was just 30 minutes from
the time the first shock was given
"Dago Prank" Cirofici, the first to die,
until "Lefty Louie" Rosenberg, the
last of the four, was pronounced
"Whitey Lewis" was the only one
of the gunmen to make a statement
in the death house and none, made a
confession. "Whitey Lewis" declared
the witnesses against him had per
jured themselves and swore he was
not guilty. He went to his death terror-stricken
and apparently on the
verge of collapse.
"Whitey" "Lewis was calm and fully
aware of all that was going on about
him as he stepped through the door
to the death chamber preceded by
Rabbi Goldstein. Before taking his
place in the chair he said :
"Gentlemen, for the sake of justice
I want to say that the witnesses who
swore against me perjured them
selves. I swear to God that I did not '
shoot Rosenthal." .
He died hard, jerking, "violently in
the chair when the current was sent .
through his body.
The average girl gats more happi
ness from marrying-a mere man than
