Murray cracked a $65,000 Brink's armored car theft today les.s»than 24 hours after a 26-year-old bakery truck driver pulled it off. Arrested and charged with grand larceny and bank robbery, was Ray Eugene Parmer, a short, slender youth who had been fired by Brink's' three years ago after working as a guard for the armor car company. All $65,000 was recovered. Farmer dug up the money for police. He had buried it In a wooded area near Glen Echo Amusement Park in nearby Maryland. It was a carefully planned robbery, sandwiched in on Farmer's bakery route yesterday. Myrtle Jackson, receptionist at the bakery company, said today when told of the arrest: "I just can't believe it." "'"Ray came in from his route at the regular time yesterday," she said. "He was just as calm and r.onchalant as he could be. He was one of our best drivers, one o£ our most trusted employes." It was Chief Murray's recollection of a three-year-oid Incident that led to Farmer's arrest. Murray recalled that Parmer's Brink's uniform once popped up In the hands of a teenage gang of hoodlums, rounded up on various charges. There was suspicion at the time that some of this gang contemplated using the uniform In ■some sort of robbivy. Here is the story as told to reporters by Inspector Jeremiah Pla herty: After Parmer's uniform was found in the possession of the gang in 1949, police took him into custody and questioned him. They found no evidence of any wrongdoing by Pai-mer and released him. Soon afterwards. Brink's fired Parmer because of the uniform episode.

"If trappers and prosnecters have failed to return from the valley it's because they were not as fortunate a« we were," says Shainp. "There is good reason for their failure to return. It's the kind of country where one mistake can mean your life." They financed the trip by n. commission from the U. S. Defense Department to test a new food ration pack, and an assignment to write scientific reports on some of their findings. The trio motored from Washing- where northern aviator C. C. P. Dalziel picked them up for the 150-mjle flight to their base camp at Glacier' Lake, some 180 miles upstream from the mouth of the Nahanni River. The .river is in the northwest territories and about 700 miles northwest of Edmonton. ' They started from Glacier Lake because much of the- Nahanni Valley had been covered by prospectors- and trappei-s, and they wanted to go through a region less likely to have been seen previously. When they got going on foot, each carried a 75-pound pack with a rifle and other equipment. Shamp cracked a knee-cap and fractured a shoulder-blade soon after the start, but continued with the others. ^ A few days later one rifle was damaged beyond repair on rocks, and the two others were put out of ocmpilssion by contual dampness leaving the explorers without arms to kill game for good.

Dwight D. Eisenhower has been told that his campaign, at this point, is not going well, and he was pictured today as prepared now to begin an Intensive, toe-to-toe fight for the presidency". His aides and visitors to his newly established New York headquarters Indicated that his next moves will be: 1. To obtain the active support of Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, and especially of Taft's organization aid the thousands of Republicans who backed the senator for the GOP nomination. 2. To begin speaking out on specific Issues, naming names and pin - pointing the. major GOP charges against the Democrats, the Truman administration.record and the Democratic nominee. Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois. "On Eisenhower's schedule of appointments for tod-ay were Sen. Edward Martin of Pennsylvania, a Taft supporter, and Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire. Bridges remained neutral in the Taft-Ei-senhower battle in the New Hamnp.hire primary. Some of the newspanei's in the stnte claimed, however, that he leaned toward Taft. The general's aides said a meeting with Taft himself is in the cards for some time next month. The date is still pending, they said. Prom three different sources, Eisenhower apparently heard some frank talk about his campaign progress on his first day in the new regional headquarters here. On^ was Sen. Wallace Bennett of Utah, who supported Taft's drive for the GOP nomination. Bennett said he discussed with Eisenhower the means of getting support from Taft's backers. "On the Srganizational level, we talked about fusing the Taft and Eisenhower groups into one effective organization," he added. The senator added that he has found a "surprising number" of independent voters who are in doubt now about Eiseniiower after having been sympathetic to his candidacy earlier. "I find plenty of people who say they are going to take a second look at Stevenson." Bennett said. A prominent Republican, who iisked not to be identified, said purposejy kept-the campaign in low gear to and through today's speech before JJie Legion Convention." One of Eisenhower's top lieutenants, Arthur Vandenberg Jr., told a reporter: "The campaign hasn't begun yet. He's sgt now to open up." . While these conferences were taking place, the New York World-Telegram and Sun was on the street here with a front-page editorial which said. "Ike 'is running like a dry creek." The newspaper is a unit in the Scripps-Howard organization, which is supporting Eisenhower fo rthe presidency. But that described his statements, to date, as "little milk and water remarks." and asked "Ike. when do we .start?" Around Eisenhower's headquarters, however, there was no sign of pessimism. The people yorking with him quote a political adage: August headlines don't last." and •said that, from this point on, he would open uo with all his heavy guns on the Democrats.

Slack, now an acting assistant attorney general okayed a grand jury report vindicating the way James P. Finne-gan was handling the St. Louis Internal Revenue office in 1951. District Judge George H. Moore described the report as "astonishing" and told the grand jurors to try again. "As a reisult," a Judiciary subcommittee was told, "many indictments were returned, including an indictment of the collector of internal revenue in St. Louis, James P. Pinnegan." The statement was made by Robert A. Collier, counsel for the subcommitee as it resumed an inquiry into the St. Louis scandals that led to Pinnegan's conviction last March 15 on charges of misconduct in office. Slack, who was in the hearing room, told a reporter that Collier approved the grand jury report. "The report was read to me," Slack .said, "But I had no authority to approve it. That Is where the statement is in error." Chairman Chelf (D-Ky) has announced the aim of the subcommittee is to find out whether there was any "interference" with the grand jury.

Adlai Stevenson was all set today to make a bold bid for votes in New York .and then swing into a nine-state Western tour early next month on his presidential campaign. The Democratic presidential nominee will address the American Legion Convention at Madison Square Garden tomorrow. After that he plunges into a round of politicking that has all the earmarks of a major campaign effort. His Labor Day speech in Detroit will launch his formal campaign-but the New York City trip was developing as the real opening campaign barrage in fact if not in name. Stevenson was due to see a few callers today to discuss farm and rural electrification problems. The visitors Included Clyde H.
