Robinson, Sr., Involved In
Stoll Kidnaping Case, Is
Taken In Nashville
Son Flees, Leaving
Car AtSpringfield
Pays Portion Of Ransom
To Springfield Rooming
House Proprietor
NASHVILLE, Oct. 18 -U(A)-
Thomas H. Robinson, Sr., was ar-
rested late today on charges of
kidn aping Mrs. Alice Speed Stoll,
of Louisville, and was 'taken be-
fore United States Commissioner
Julian Campbell for an imme-
diate hearing.
The arrest was made by Dep-
uty United States Marshal O. D.I
Johnson, and W. A. Rorer, head
of the Nashville Federal agents,
who took Robinson, the father
of Thomas H. Robinson, Jr.,
charged with the actual kidnap-
ing, to the Federal Building.
The prisoner pleaded not guilty
and was held under $25,000 bond.
LOUISVILLE, Oct. 18-(P)- One
definite trace of the trail left by the
discharged lunatic sought as the kid-
naper of Alice Speed Stoll, was found
today in Springfield, O., and countless
clues continued to pour in from other
parts of an aroused nation.
The car in which Thomas H. Rob-
inson, Jr., the man sought, fled from
an Indianapolis apartment where
Mrs. Stoll was held a prisoner six
days, was found abandoned in Spring-
A Springfield rooming house pro-
prietor identified a police picture of
Robinson as the man who left the
car in her garage. A $5 bill paid to
her was found to be part of the
$50,000 ransom paid for Mrs. Stoll's
release. Three other persons report-
ed that they had seen Robinson in
Springfield this morning.
The man registered at the rooming
house as "Ben Doken, of South Bend,
Ind." He put his car in the garage
and went up to his room and shaved.
When he came, he said he was going
downtown. He wore a derby and
glasses and was about six feet tall. In
his suitcase police found an overcoat
and a Chicago newspaper containing
a story of the hunt for Mrs. Stoll and
her kidnaper.
The remarkable luck that attend-
ed the abductor from the start con-
tinued today as he eluded searchers.
Three or four times before Mrs. Stoll
was released Federal agents missed
catching him by minutes.f
In Nashville, Tenn., notes to Rob-
inson's father were made public in
which he was warned that failure to
carry out details as requested by his
son would mean that Mrs. Stoll will
never be seen alive. The note said
the writer was "the kidnaper of Alice
As the hunt by Federal, State and
City forces methodically went on a
special Grand Jury was ordered to
meet Saturday to indict Robinson.
Revivings OfsDead
7Soul Is Question

Raised By Clergy
DENVER, Colo., Oct. 18.-(P)-The
question of whether a dead man
brought back to life would be a per-
son without a soul was raised by Den-
ver ministers today in a discussion of
the experiment of Dr. Robert E. Cor-
nish of Berkeley, Calif.
The Berkeley scientist, who has re-
vived dogs with at least partial suc-
cess, has proposed to try to restore
life to a convict executed in Colorado's
lethal gas chamber.
The Rev. Thomas Murray of the
South Broadvway Presbyterian Church,
cited instances in the Bible where
Jesus raised Lazarus and the son of a
widow, St. Peter resurrected a young
girl and Elisha a child, as proof that
a person brought back to life would
have a soul.
The Rev. Hobert Meyer, pastor of
Emmaus Lutheran Church, said these
instances should be expected, with the
explanation they were miracles per-
formed by divine.power and that no
ordinary mortal would be able to bring
back the soul.

Dr. F.A. Coller Cites Dangers
Of Infection In Upper Lip Area

Backed By Labor

BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 18.-VP)-
An upper lip health risk that may
justify the "eyebrow" mustache as a
real protector was explained to the
American College of Surgeons here
Any infection of the upper lip, such
as might arise from even a trivial
razor scratch or whatever risk there
may be in kissing is much more po-
tentially dangerous than similar in-
fections of the lower lip.
The facial mechanism involved in
this situation and the not infrequently
fatal results were explained to a
symposium on infections by Dr. Fred-
erick A. Coller, of Ann Arbor, Mich. A
person with anything larger than an
ordinary pimple on the upper lip,
he said, really ought to be in bed
in a hospital because of what might
Broadly speaking, this "upper lip"
area includes not only the site of the
mustaches but much of the face and
nose. Infection in these areas if they

get beyond mild stages are' apt to
spread until they reach the facial
These veins pass down close to each
side of the nose and then flare across
the cheeks somewhat above the mus-
tache lip area. Ordinarily the blood
in them flows downward, but upper
lip infections may block these veins,
forcing the blood in them upward.
It then flows up toward the eye,
passes the region of the inner angle
of the eye and empties into the "cav-
ernous sinus" located on the floor of
the skull.
Once there the infection can kill
quickly. It may produce clots that
may carry infection through the blood
stream all over the body or result
in meningitis, or both.
Dr. Coller warned that in treating
an upper lip infection a pimple there
should never be squeezed. Once the in-
fection becomes serious, he said, talk-
ing should be prohibited in order to
rest the lip. X-rays should be used.

Freshman Banner
Torn From Heights
By Outraged Band
The Union with its many floors and
impenetrable doors proved a boon to
the freshman class in its present
feud with the sophomore contingent
when the aforementioned youngsters
strung a militant '38 banner from the
tip-most-top of the top-most-tip of
the tower of Mr. Allen McComb's of-
ficial hangout.
For two days the challenge flut-
tered in the breeze. Passersby imag-
ined that it might be fluttering in
fear at its approaching fate. Sopho-
mores were sure that it was, but when
they valiantly stormed the citadel
they were baffled by a sturdy two
inches of planking, an unrelenting
No key could be found which could
permit entrance. Sophomores racked
their brains, already matured with
one year of University training, but
in vain. It looked indeed as if the
Class of '38 had waved the flag under
the bull's nose with impunity.
Lacking in ingenuity as they might
be, however, the sophs proved them-
selves fully equipped in the matter of
brawn. Consistent battering finally
budged the door enough to permit a
long arm to remove the two-by-two
trigger arrangement and then remove
the offending banner.
Now the question arises, "Will
sophomore brawn prevail against
freshman brains in the forthcoming
fall games?"
Architecture Is
Topic Of Talk
GivenBy Hall
"Architectural Registration Laws in
the United States" was the subject of
a talk given under the auspices of the
Architectural Society by Emory Stan-
ford Hall, secretary of the National
Council of Architectural Registration
Boards, yesterday in the College of
Architecture auditorium.
Four years of study in a technical
school and three years of apprentice-
ship under the guidance of a practic-
ing architect were cited by Mr. Hall
as being the requirements necessary
to apply for a license as a qualified
Warning the students of the evils
of regarding the profession of archi-
tecture as merely one in which draft-
ing is all-important, Mr. Hall gave
several examples of would-be archi-
tects who concentrated merely on
this one phase and never advanced
any further than assistants to fully-
qualified architects.

qualified, regardless of his color.
"If Georgia Tech refuses to play
with him on the team, I see no reason
why they should not forfeit the game
to Michigan."

Succeeds Barthou

Raymond Gimmey Admits
Striking Blow That May
Have Caused Death
Says Wife Called
Him 'A Vile Name'

Had Just Returned From
Dance When Argument
Led To Violence
In a voluntary confession to County
Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp, Raymond
Gimmey, 26 years old, 1110 Hutchins
Ave., yesterday admitted that he had
struck the blow which, physicians say,
caused the death of his wife, Mrs. Ida
Gimmey, at 12:40 p.m. yesterday in
St. Joseph's Mercy hospital.
No charge has yet been placed
against Gimmey, Prosecutor Rapp
said last night, pending final report
of the autopsy on the body. He indi-
cated, however, that if the blow is
officially confirmed as the cause of
death, Gimmey will face a charge of
Dr. S. C. Howard of Ann Arbor,
who performed the autopsy, told The
Daily last night that death was caused
by hemmorhage of the throat, and
that this condition was the result
of a ruptured blood vessel, presum-
ably caused by the blow which Gim-
mey admitted striking.
'Returned Late'
Gimmey, in his confession, said that
his wife had returned from a dance
late Wednesday night. She was driv-
ing his car, he said, and he remon-
strated with her for driving without a
"Well, she just kept on arguing and
finally she didn't quit talking to me
and I told her I was going to get up
and go out in the car and sleep be-
cause I couldn't stand arguing all
night like that," Gimmey said in de-
scribing the events leading to the fata
He said that his'wife then "slapped
me a few times and kicked me once
in the stomach." He was not violently
angered then, he said, but he admitted
"losing my head" when she called
him a particularly vile name.
"Then you struck her?" interjected
Prosecutor Rapp.
"Yes, I just lost my head when she
said that," Gimmey replied. "I .just
struck and that's all there was to
that. I struck her on the neck."
Called Physician
Gimmey then said that almost im-
mediately he noticed his wife's neck
beginning to swell. He became alarmed
at that, he said, and called a physi-
cian, who ordered the injured woman
to be taken to a hospital. She was
admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital at
3 a.m.
According to his confession, Gim-
mey waited at the hospital until 6 am.
At that time, he said, a nurse "came
out and said she was all right, so I
went home and they called me and
said that she was dead."
Mrs. Gimmey died at 12:40 p.m., It
was stated at the hospital.
Under Prosecutor Rapp's question-
ing, Gimmey admitted that a bad
feeling had existed between him and
his wife for several months. He said
that three months ago he had con-
sidered getting a divorce, but that
he had never taken any legal steps
toward such action.
Older Than Wife
Gimmey charged that his wife had
continually nagged him, often becom-
ing angry because, he said, she "want-
ed me to make more money." Gimmey
said he had been out of work for
more than two years.
Gimmey's age is 26. His wife
was 24. The couple would have
been married four years in January.
Discussing the case, Prosecutor
Rapp said that he would probably
bring a charge of manslaughter
against Gimmey. Under Michigan law,
he would, if found guilty, receive a
penalty of six months' to fifteen
years' imprisonment.
If Gimmey pleads guilty he will be
sentenced in less than 48 hours, Prose-
cutor Rapp said. Thus far the ac-
cused man has not indicated whether
he will plead guilty or not, and has
not asked for a lawyer.

Lieut. Coursey Finds Himself

about Britain's defensive front being
on the Rhine drew a sharp reply
Wednesday from Herr Wilhelm Goer-,

that England need have no anxiety
about German intentions, but reiter-

about as evenly as that of any of the

Richard R. Coursey, assistant profes-
