Katherine Keller Gets Five- Year
Sentence to House of Correction

Four to five years in the Detroit
House of Correction was the sent-
ence imposed yesterday by Judge
George W. Sample upon Katherine
Keller, who was convicted Oct. 16,
in the Washtenaw circuit court as
an accessory after the Ypsilanti
torch murders of last August.
In addition to recommending the
minimum sentence; Judge Sample
stated that if the defendant im-
proved her attitude and manner of
living the court would intercede in
her behalf at the end of two and
ne-half years.
Miss Keller's conduct throughout
the seven-day trial and during her
previous stay in jail was the subject
of / severe condemnation by the
court. Judge Sample intimated that
unless she improved in several ways,
including the language she used, he
would not try to aid her.
In his address to the prisoner,
the judge stated that at the be-
ginning of the trial he had been
disposed to hope that she would be
found innocent, but that the facts
brought out during the trial had
fully convinced him of her' knowl-
edge of and implication in the mur-
"Your close association with the
murderers, both preceding and suc-
ceeding the crimes, convinces me

that you knew all about what had
been done," the judge told her.
One of the largest crowds in the
history of the case thronged the,
courtroom to see Miss Keller receive
her sentence. Upon being asked if
she had anything to say, she re-
plied, "I'd just like to be given an-
other chance."
Miss Keller was arrested Aug. 13
for investigation as to her knowl-
edge of the torch murders shortly
after Judge Sample had sentenced
Frank Oliver, her sweetheart, and
his accomplice to four life terms in
Marquette prison. She was held.in
the county jail because of failure
to furnish the $10,000 bond re-
quired, and a special grand jury
was summoned to determine her
responsibility in the crimes.
The trial attracted widespread
attention from press and public,
and the teptimonies of the 29 wit-
nesses called before the jury were
given before eager crowds on each
of the seven days through which
the trial lasted. Miss Keller was
represented by Attorney W. D.
Grommon of Hillsdale, while the
prosecution was conducted by Ed-
ward A. Bilitzke, assistant attorney
general, Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp,
and Carl A. Lehman, assistant pro-

Eighty-Eight-Yard Run Features
Sensational Grid Contest
of the East.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 24.-1_P)
-With one late dazzling stroke, an
88-yard run back of kickoff for a
touchdown by Quarterback Robert
(Dud) ,Parker, Yale wiped out an
early Army advantage today and
tied the cadets for the second
straight year in one of the East's
most spectacular football classics.
The final score was 6-6 as Yale,
in a thrilling final quarter, lost
three big chances to break the
Yale's first chance to break the
tie went glimmering when Ed Ro-
tan, giant guard, just missed the
uprights with the kicking try for
extra point.
Army's running attack was almost.
entirely stopped by Yale's forwards.
The cadets capitalized their one
scoringdchance mainly through
Stecker's passing skill. The star
halfback tossed to Kilday for one
gain of 16 yards and another pass
to Lankenau, substitute end, was
good for a 20-yard gain, putting the
ball on Yale's 5-yard line.
Carver contributed one yard and
Stecker four to cover the distance
to the goal in three plunges.

Federal Judge James Wilkerson
Gives Sentence; Gangster
Stunned by Outcome.
Marshal Directpd to Leave With
Capone for' Leavenworth
CHICAGO, Oct. 24.-(I)-"Scar-
face Al" Capone, underworld czar
of Chicago, was sentenced today to
11 years imprisonment for violating
income tax laws. He was taken into'
custody immediately and held in
the county jail."
The sentence, which appeared to
stun Capone, was 10 years in the
Leavenworth prison and one year
in the Cdok County jail. Capone was
also ordered to pay a $50,000 fine
and the costs of prosecution-esti-
mated at $100,000.
Federal Judge James H. Wilker-
son not only passed a sentence more
than twice as severe as had ever
been given an income tax evader
before, but ie denied every motion
which would have given the big
gangster his freedom while the case
was appealed.
The court at first refused to in-
terrupt the marshal's plans to take
Capone to Leavenworth Peniten-
tiary tonight, bt later.when ii-.
formed :that defense attorneys had
been unable to get to the United
States circuit court of appeals to
ask that body for bond during an
appeal, Judge Wilkerson ordered
the gang chief held in Chicago until
Monday,, so that his application for
a writ of supersedeas could be taken
before a higher court.
The Court imposed the maximum
possible penalties on the five counts
on which Capone was convicted,
but cut the penalty from the pos-
sible maximum, 17 years.
As the gangster, downcast and
apparently dazed by the sentence,
was led from the courtroom he was
handed a demand for taxes and im-
mediately afterward a lien on his
$40,000 Florida estate and on three
safety deposit boxes in the Equit-
able Trust Co., a bank on the South
Side of Chicago.
