The Wilkerson children. Left to rig
seated, Otto, 8; Ruby, 10,
DURANT. Okla., June 14.?Scientists
are puzzling over the case of, the
four Wilkerson children, who murdered
their father, after conspiring to
kill him in the cold-blooded fashion of
professional criminals.
Not in decades has such an astounding
murder been brought before criminologists,
a murder which every one
of the four children has admitted in
court, and which none seems to rue.
For four days they wont over the
plans of the killing. Three times the
two younger children, who actually
committed the deed, ran away from
their victim ftfehtened. Put, urged
ahead by the older conspirators, the
younger children returned the fourth
time and completed the crime.
The oldest child is 13-year-old Bessie.
Next comes Jack, 12, then Ruby,
10, and the youngest, Otto, 8.
R. L. Wilkerson, the father, a faras
Luigi and his brutality is most convincing.
Bob Huggins did good work
as Pietro. Sally Crute as the jealous
fiancee of Graham, the district attorney,
who befriends l<ucia, is satisfactory.
The settings are for the most part
confined to ragpickers' dens and police
headquarters, Bave for a few
charming home views and the farm
scenes at the end.
Elizabeth Risdon at the Nelson.
In "Desperation" which is the big
feature at the Nelson today KlizabeUi
Risdon linds umple opportunity tor displaying
of her splendid histrionic talents.
The picture is a three-reel Gold
Seal drama abounding in many startling
climaxes and intense moments.
"Paucho's Ranch" is a funny, includ
eel in today's program as is aisu uc
Mutual Weekly, 't his latter feature is
growing in interest as our part in the
proseut world war increases. The pictures
are ail right down to date and
show many interesting features of the
war preparation program. Other news
features include current happenings i
throughout the country.
J "CLOSE-UPS" j
?"The Eternal City" was well patronized
at the Nelson yesterday and
the magnificence of the picture and
story made a splendid impression on
the audience, many of whom probably
visited the Nelson for the first time.
The clean fresh air created by noiseless
fans which has a perfect circulation
due to a recently installed system
of ventilation makes the Nelson a comfortable
resort in the hottest weather.
?The American Minstrels made
quite a showing in their street parade.
The "zippy" mwfic and the quick step
marching of the band is a pretty good
tonic for spring fever.
?Manager Nelson, of the Nelson
Theatre, is negotiating for another
banner attraction for next week. He
is trying to land it for his next Thursday's
program.
?The- Camping Girls* Musical Comedy
Company is the promised attraction
at the Hippodrome next week. On
Monday-they are scheduled' to present j
a merry musical fares "Fun In a.
Camp."

mer, had often cursed them, the children
told County Judge Paullin. Their i
mother had died last January. When
Wilkerson whipped Bessie, the children
planned the murder.
With the utmost unconcern, the j.
children showed the court how they
committed the awful deed. While
their father slept, the children stole
up to him for the fourth time. Little
Otto, the youngest, had his finger at .
the trigger of a shotgun, Ruby point- ]
ed the gun to the man's head, and the
other two urged them on. Otto pulled
the trigger.
Judge Paulline and others interested
in child welfare were astounded
by the calmness of the young murder- t
ers. He cannot explain it even now. f
