WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. -(AP-
Government officials today looked over
the records and concluded that the'
month-old :federal war against the
kidnaper, the gangster andthe rack-
eteer is making satisfactory tprogress.
They promised anew, in the words
of Joseph B. Keenan, assistant attor-
ney general, that,"the inhabitants of
this country are: not to be left to the
mercy of attacks of organized crimi-
Just a little more than a month
ago, Keenan was designated by his
chief, Attorney General Cummings
to lead the justice department's anti-
President Roosevelt approved. In
fact, the chief executive was so much
interested that he next chose Ray-
mond Moley, assistant secretary of
state, to survey broader aspects of
the problem while Keenan concen-
trated on catching the criminals and
In a report on kidnapings, Keenan

Oklahoma City July 23. One man
identified and a fugitive, another
"J. J. O'Connell, Jr., was kidnaped
on the seventh of last month at Al-
bany. He is now released and the
federal government, despite certain
handicaps, is attempting to do its full
part in apprehending and bringing to
justice his kidnapers.,
Of the kidnaping of August Luer,
who was taken from his Alton, Ill.,
home at the point of a gun on July
10 and held for ransom, Keenan said:
"Through the efforts of the depart-
ment of justice, through the agents
of the bureau of investigation Mr.
Luer was released from captivity and
returned unharmed to his home
without the payment of any ransom.
"After apprehending the accused
and having collected the necessary
evidence, we hope to participate un-
til the close of the case. The prose-
cution, with the full consent of the
federal government, will take place
in the courts of the state of Illinois
at Madison county.
"Although the federal authorities
could have prosecuted these defend-
ants, since the law of the state of
A series of conferences called by Raymond Moley to seek ways
of unifying federal and state activities opened the government's anti-
crime campaign. Moley (right), appointed by President Roosevelt to
investigate the crime situation, started his new duties by conferring
at the state department with Joseph B. Keenan (left), special assist-
ant to the attorney general in charge of anti-racketeering efforts,
and William Stanley (center), first assistant attorney general.
Warrants for the arrest of Mrs.
Geraldine R. Dutton of, Collins
Center, N. Y., were shorn out after
she had "kidnaped" her three-
year-old son, Richard Allen Dut-
ton (above), from the summer
camp of his father near Oneida
Lake, N. Y. The couple, once
known as the "flying Duttons,"
were separated some time ago.
Illinois provides a death penalty for
kidnaping and with the same deter-
minlation relentlessly to pursue kid-
napers throughout the country, the
combined authorities of the state and
federal government will seek the
maximum penalty of death in each
of these cases.
Keenan said that in 12 recent kid-
naping cases, 19 persons had been
convicted while 14 other suspects are
held and six persons whose identities
are known are being sought.
"If those contemplating the com-
mission of these crimes gave any
consideration to the matter of escap-
ing the clutches of the law after their
commission, they would be very re-
luctant to enter into such enter-
prises," Keenan said..

youth, had confessed the killing.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-()-
The President's modified reorgani-
zation plan went into effect today,
involving around 10,000 employes, of
whom about 900 have to look for
There was, first, the prohibition
bureau, with 1,800 workers. This was
transferred into the justice depart-
ment's new division of investigation.
Six hundred employees, 200 in Wash-
ington, 400 in the field, were stricken
from the payrolls, the rest re-em-
ployed in the new agency.
Next was the merger of the bureau
of investigation and naturalization
in the labor department. All the 3,-
907 employes in these, save 275, were
reappointed temporarily for four
months. The 275 were allowed 10
days notice of retirement or dis-
The third big transfer found the
heretofore independent United States
shipping board and the Merchant
Fleet corporation put under the com-
merce department. Secretary Roper,
pending a survey, reapopinted all the

however, that he contemplates a re-
Until Sept. 30, all the 2,800 em-
ployes of the abolished office of pub-
lic buildings and public parks of the
national capital will be retained tem-
Numerous other smaller agencies
also were merged, or abolished.
Officials estimate the changes will
eventually cut expenditures about
$5,000,000. Additional reorganization
is scheduled for Dec. 31.

FROM SOUP TO MORE SOUP
CHICAGO, Aug. 10. -(A')- As a
taster of soup George Verveka was
busy because that's his business.
A canning company pays him a
salary for tasting soup.
But, his wife, Jeanette, charged
in a bill for divorce, when she set
down a plate of her own soup for
him to eat he looked at it and
"What, more soup?"
It was after that, she alleged, that
he picked up the plate and threw
its contents in her face.
