It was disclosed by the department of Justice agents that Cowley was the real leader In the federal drive that brought down the notorious Dillinger, although Melvln H.

Cowley also commanded the government's manliunters In tracking down Charles (Pretty Hoy I Floyd In an Ohio cornfield last month, de- partment of justice agents dis- closed. Hollls was reported to have fired one of the bullets that killed Dillinger in front of a north side movie theater last July.

"Stub" Allison, n former star player at Carleton College, Norlhlleld, Minn. In a shift so sudden that It surprised even Allison, the exe- cutive committee of The Associat- ed Students accepted Ingrain's resignation last night and promptly appointed the man who has been his llrsl assistant for four years. Ingrain's resignation staled that he was accepting "a wonderful opportunity to beconn settled hi private- business life." Ingram, who came to Califor- nia four years ago from the head coaching position at the Fulled States Navay Academy, made no mention in his resignation or recent grumbling among under- graduate and alumni groups over his team's defeats during the season. It had been generally assumed that the great comeback of tho California Hears In holding the coast champion Stanford Cardi- nals' margin of victory to 'J 7 last Saturday had quieted the grumbles and that "Navy would be at the helm again 111 completing his contract which did not expire for anoth- er year.

For hours after the new out- burst of warfare between t h e government and the remnants of the Dillinger gang, the police combed the "badlands" of t h e city, striking here and there for a clue to the whereabouts of the pair. The second fugitive Is be- lieved In some quarters to have been John Hamilton, a lieutenant In the Dillinger mob. Two arrests were made by raid- Ing squads of police and federal agents. Chester Leader, a garage owner and Lester Van Huston, op- erator of a tavern, both described by police as associates of Nelson were seized for quest lolling. The killers, who fought a run- ning fight with the federal ag- ents as they sped along a high- way, escaped In the automobile of the federal officers. They had halted their own machine and pumped their deadly machine gun bullets at Hollls and Crowley when the two stepped from tin-h- ear and advanced toward t h gangsters with drawn guns. Cowley was still conscious when he was taken to an Klgln. III., hospital, but Hollis was dead when removed to the same In- stitution. "Did you get Cowley asked. "I milsl talk to him before die." Purvis hurried to the hospital tnd emerged sometime later from he operating room, asserting that Nelson was the driver of the kill- er's machine and that the fed- eral Investigators believed that the woman in their machine was Mrs. Hetty C.lllls, Nelson's wile. Cowley Is listed In department of Justice records as a native of i Logan, Ftah. and a graduate of George Washington university. He has been with the department of justice since Hollls. a native of Des .Mollies, Iowa, entered the service In T.I 17 afler receiving a diploma from iti-orsetown university. __ J____...___ FOHT WILLIAM.
