Seeking Hand-Grenades,
Poison Gas, Needles
DETROIT, Aug. 1.-(P)-Prosecut-
or Duncan C. McCrea said tonight a
chemist questioned about a reported
Black Legion typhoid epidemic plot
has declared a high-ranking Legion
officer inquired also how to make
hand-grenades and kill people with
poison gas and hypodermic needles.
The chemist, a bacteriologist and
registered pharmacist whose name
was withheld, was questioned in the
prosecutor's office after a startling
story told by William Guthrie, a
Black Legion printer.
Held On Riot. Charge
Guthrie, who is held on a con-
spiracy to riot charge, asserted that
the same high Legion officer wanted
to breed typhoid germs in his house
and talked of infecting Jews by in-
jecting the germs through milk bot-
tle caps and also into cottage cheese.
Nothing came of either plot.
McCrea said the pharmacist ad-
mitted joining the Black Legion two
years ago and said he was afraid to
report any of the secret order's ac-
tivities to police because the terrorists
boasted also.of having a "Legionnaire
at most every post a man could go
Death Methods Discussed
The high Legion officer talked, the
pharmacist said, of making bombs to
throw into meetings and automobiles,
poison gas to be introduced through
keyholes of rooms and needles to
"stick someone with in the street or
in a theatre and that would produce
The pharmacist said he told the
Legion officer he did not know how
to make bombs and refused to have
any part in such plans.
Guthrie made another statement in
which he told also of inquiries about
bombs and "hypo" needles.
The high Legion officer first want-
ed bombs "knurled, similar to the
knurling on a hand grenade, ap-
parently so they would break in small
pieces," Guthrie said.
Guthrie named four places, includ-
ing a school, which the Legion of-
ficials suggested for bombing.
