Museum^ s Jewels Recovered in Part NEW YORK (AP) - The fiery Star of India, one of the world's most fascinating gems, was borne back home through dark and misty skies yesterday, 10 weeks after it was stolen in a $410,000 jewel robbery of the American Museum of Natural History. The fabulous sky-blue sapphire, along with eight other museum jewels, was found in a public locker in Miami, its glint of fire still as enthralUng as ever. THE GEMS were encased in a rotting, waterlogged chamois bag, and were still wet when found. Upon then-return to New York shortly before noon, Manhattan Dist. Atty. Frank S. Hogan said there were indications the priceless cache had lain beneath the sea for a considerable time since the gems disappeared the night of Oct. 29.

It was the red-haired Kuhn who maneuvered the recovery of the Star of India and tlie other gems, adding a fresh dash of mystery to an incredible deed of thievery, so bizarre as to rival the Oriental intrigue embodied in Tales from the Arabian Nights. "I would say Kuhn was acting for all three," said Hogan. ASKED about reports tliai the jewels were recovered In a deal in which the three beach boys would escape with light prison term.s, perhaps as little as 1 or 2 years, Hogan replied: "The extent of their cooperation is pointed out to the judge. Then it's up to the judge."

Hurried along by brisk northerly winds, the arctic air accomplished spectacular temperature drops on the prairie midlands where this week many new high Januaiy temperatures had been recorded.
