Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1953, Winona, Minnesota Fair Tonight And Tuesday; Warmer Tuesday Good Schools Are YOUR Responsibility VOLUME 53, NO. 224 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 9, 1953 SIXTEEN PAGES Indiana Baby Found Safe of Missing Greenlease Ransom Found in Michigan PETOSKEY, Mich, tfi Police Chief Philo Wakeford of Petoskey said today FBI agents have found in Petoskey a S20 bill from the missing in Greenlease ransom money. He also said he understood the FBI had found in Detroit a bill from the missing money. There was no immediate com- ment from the FBI, but its agents were reported swarming through northern Michigan after the re- ceipt of a bill, identified as part of the ransom, by a boarding house operator. All the ransom money was in and bills. It was paid by Robert C. Greenlease, mil- lionaire Kansas City, Mo., auto- mobile dealer, Oct. 4. He hoped it would return his kidnaped son, Bobby. But the boy already was dead. The ransom was paid to Carl Austin Hall and Mrs. Bon- nie Brown Heady. They have pleaded guilty to kidnaping and lolling Bobby and are awaiting trial Nov. 16 in Kansas City. Police who arrested them in St. Louis Oct. 8 recovered about half of the ransom from Hall. But he and Mrs. Heady said they did not know where the rest of the money was. Hall said at one time he thought he lost it on a drunken spree in St. Louis. Later he was quoted that he believed Mrs. Heady lost it while she was drunk. Mrs. Henry J. Krauser, who was unavailable today, was reported to have identified the bill from a list of serial numbers distributed by the FBI to operators of hotels, motels, rooming houses and mer- chants. .The Detroit Times and the De- troit News said Hrs. Krauser, a rooming house operator, got the money from a rural mail truck driver in Manton, Mich., who had received it without knowing its background. Manton is 75 miles from Petoskey. One report was that the missing money came into Michigan through Chicago's underworld and was sold by professional discount. fences at a President Nathan M.

The court's decision was given on three appeals attacking the much-discussed player "reserve keystone of organized baseball. The appeals had asked the court to overturn a 1922 unanimous de- cision delivered by Justice Holmes that baseball is a sport, not a busi- ness. The decision was announced in a per curiam opinion that is, one not signed by any member of the court. It said the tribunal was uphold- ing the Holmes' decision of 1922 "so far as that decision determines that Congress had no intention of including the business of baseball within the scope of the federal an- ti-trust laws." Treasury Faces f f r i Deficit in 54, Humphrey Says Cut in Spending, Tax Raises Indicated if Budget Is to Be Met DETROIT of the Treasury Humphrey said today the government faces a possible defi- cit of eight to nine billion dollars next year unless spending can be cut or taxes raised. And, he said, "only relatively small reductions" in government spending can be made quickly. This appeared to point, in Hum- phrey's view, to a solution com- bining (A) some tax increased, (B) some red ink spending, and (C) some reductions in spending. Humphrey, in remarks prepared for the Detroit Economic Club, did not say what possible tax increases the Treasury might have in mind, Word reached this island that King but more revenue from excise or Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia, the taxes seemed indicated.

The crippled, one-eyed king was stricken with angina pectoris on Oct. 9, but on Oct. 27 a message reached the outside world that he had passed the crisis. The king, 6 feet 4, a giant of a man in his prime, had been crip- pled in recent years by arthritis. He would have been 73 this month or next. His exact birth date was not recorded. Ibn Baud's skill and daring as a desert warrior carved out for him his kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with six million subjects. American cap- ital which tapped his country's vast oil resources gave him an income of more than 200 million dollars a year. How to Meet Deficit Humphrey said the "dilemma" of how to meet the deficit next year is "our most urgent problem at this time." It is a dilemma that must be solved shortly, since budget estimates for fiscal 1955 Pictured Is Norma Jean Doughty, 17, shown with Deputy U. S. Marshal W. A.

Some scientists at work on a nationwide survey to measure the effectiveness of GG-think as many as 800 cases may have been pre- they don't expect to be able to prove it. However, said Dr. Alexander D.

If it were established that GG can prevent crippling, he said, "it would be extremely important from the public health standpoint Tops Of Parking meters in the municipal parking lot at Bridgeport, Conn., look like periscopes sticking out of the water as high tides raised the Pequonnock River six feet above the normal high water stage.

Langmuir said the survey is ex- pected to: 1. Point to leads that might sug- gest improved methods for pre- dicting polio epidemics in specific areas. 2. Provide some indication whether it is possible "to set up a program of masjs immunization with gamma globulin in a given epidemic area in time to be ef- fective." 3.

The disease itself behaves so unpredictably it is hard to tell whether a dip in the number of cafes, recorded during the season, might not have occurred anyway. Last April and May, at the be- ginning of the poiio season, weekly totals were running ahead of com- parable weeks in, oe- cause 1952 was a record year, some health officials voiced cou- cein. But, during June and July, the weekly totals were running about equal to last year's, and thereafter they rapidly fell below. The peak of this year's outbreak was reached in mid-August, about a month earlier than in 1952.
