championships today at the Detroit
The present Wolverine swimmers
who will compete include Frank Bar-
nard, sophomore middle-distance star,
and Jack Kasley, expected to be an
outstanding threat in the 220-yard
breast stroke. The former Michigan
tankers who will compete will aid the
Detroit A.C. in the defense of its
team championship. They are Dick
Degener, 10-foot diving champion,
and Taylor Drysdale and Tex Robert-
son, both members of Michigan's 1935
Conference -and National champion-

a trio of the greatest record breakers
in the history of the sport, headed
by the incomparable Jack Medica, who
will receive ample competition from
Jimmy Gilhula of Detroit and South-
ern California and Ralph Flanagan,

Of the Wolverine entries; Degener,
Drysdale and Kasley will be. among

Two Favorites Are Out
With Al Vande Weghe, 100-meter
back-stroke champion and Danny
Zehr, Northwestern University's fresh-
man sensation, out, Drysdale will be
the leading contender in his favorite
Kasley will face Johnny Higgins,
Providence, R. I., in the breast stroke
but will be a favorite on the basis of
his performance in winning the col-
legiate crown indoors and his A.A.U.
record for two seasons indoors.
Barnard and Robertson in the mid-
dle and long distances will face the
triumvirate of Medica, Gilhula, and
Flanagan, but are conceded excellent
chances of placing if not stepping in
to displace one of the favorites.

Murder Of Lillian Gallaher
Confessed After Arrest
By New York Police
Slain Girl's Mother
VIENNA, July 3. - (tea - The Aus-
trian government tonight took an-
other step toward restoration of the
old monarchy by voting to repeal the
laws which exiled the Hapsburgs and
to restore to the family its vast prop-
erties, held by the state since the
dynasty was overthrown in 1918.
To become effective, the cabinet's
action must be approved by the Fed- I
eral Diet, which meets July 9 to con-a
sider the question.t
The decision strengthened the Mon- f
archists' belief that Archduke Otto, L
youthful pretender to the Austrian r
throne, will be crowned in Vienna g
Consent of the diet to restore the
expropriated castles, land and bus- f
iness properties to the House of Haps- r
burg was regarded as certain, for the t
Diet almost invariably rubber stamps f
actions of the cabinet.
Royal properties confiscated in 1919 1
included over a dozen castles, mu- l
seums, theaters, business properties, t
foArests, farms and even Vienna's r
closest approach to Coney Island, c
the "Prater." While the cabinet voted t
to repeal most of the confiscation h
law, it specified that museums and h
theaters should remain the property h
of the state.

"I guess you know all about me by4
this time. I might just as well tell
the whole story. That day when all
this happened, it was between 3 and
5 p.m. on Sept. 20, I was walking
between Cass and Woodward Aves.r
when I saw a little girl passing the
library there. .
"Will you come to my room and
help me take some books to the li-
brary," I said. She said she would
We went to my room and I took hert
to the bedroom. Then I told this
little girl what I meant to do. SheI
screamed and tried to run away. She
ran into another room and slipped
on a rug. She hit her head and be-
came unconscious. I feared the worst+
because I had committed a similar
crime some years ago.
Gagged Her With Towel
"Then I took a towel and gagged
her and I choked her and put her in'
the bathtub and let her stay there
awhile. Then I put her in the trunk.
I hate to think of that. I went out
looking for my wife. I didn't want
to stay around the apartment alope
with that little girl there in the trunk.
"It didn't take me long to find rhy
wife. She sold pies and cakes in a
nearby restaurant. When I saw her
I said, "Florence, dear, two men are
following me. I'm afraid of the old
case in Lima, O. Do yoi remember?
I think they want to take me back
to finish that rap. Let's get out of
here. Let's leave our furniture and
everything and beat it."
"She laid it was all right with her
as long as I wanted to leave. We
went to Canada. Stayed there awhile
and then we went to Boston. Last
November we came to New York and
we've been living here ever since.
"I Was Scared"
"I was just scared when all this
happened. When I asked the little
girl to come to my apartment I meant
to attack her, but I didn't mean to
kill her. Before she slipped on the
srug she fell down a couple of stairs
and I became frightened for the first
time when I saw the gush of blood
. from her head.
"It was then that in fright I grabbed
h. nrnd threw her in the tub. T tied

DETROIT, July 3 - (P) - The
ong-sought Merton Ward Goodrich,
rrested in New York Wednesday af-
ernoon, sleepily and wearily con-
essed that he killed eleven-year-old
Lillian Gallaher in his Detroit apart-

erent to the horrible story he was
elating, detectives said, that at times
hey had to nudge him back to wake-
Meanwhile, in an adjoining room,
Mrs. Florence Harding Goodrich, the
oyal, limping farm girl wife whose
ears and pleas had obtained Good-
ich's freedom on three previous oc-
asions, was admitting complicity in
he crime and saying that she had
helped her husband keep out of the
hands of the law, "Because I love
Goodrich had been arrested the day
before in Central Park, near the
Hecksher Foundation wading pool,
where he was watching children play
n the water. Patrolman Thomas J.
Harris had watched his twitching
face, decided the man was a degen-
erate and arrested him on a charge
of disorderly conduct.
Harris said that Goodrich had ap-
peared to be on the verge of making
advances to one of the children.
It was not until police checked his
fingerprints Wednesday morning
that they connected the prisoner who
gave his name as Henry Johnson with
the former trapdrummer whom Ohio
parole officials had released three
times from the State Hospital for the
Criminal insane at Lima, O., and
who finally added murder to his list
of crimes against girls.
Goodrich's Mother Dead
In Detroit, Mrs. Emma Gallaher,
mother of Goodrich's final victim col-
lapsed upon hearing the news that
brought relief from the six months'
strain of waiting for his arrest. Good-
rich's mother, Mrs. Ethel Goodrich,
died in Cleveland last week because
of worry over the fate of her son.
Police Commissioner Heinrich A.
Pickert dispatched Detectives George
Branton and Harry Sher to New
York by plane immediately on hear-
ing news of the identification. Prose-
cuting Attorney Duncan C. McCrea
followed Wednesday night. I
Goodrich waived extradition, and
agreed to return at once to Detroit
for the arraignment and sentence.
McCrea hoped to be able to obtain
Goodrich's release from New York
authorities Thursday, even though it
is a legal holiday, and to start back
with his prisoner Thursday night.
Federal Indictment hanging
McCrea.hoped that it would not be
necessary to return Goodrich under
the Federal indictment handed down
here, although this could be done if
delays developed under State proced-
ure. Assistant Federal District At-
torney William G. Comb announced
that he was ready to invoke Federal
authority if McCrea asked him to do

lished by fingerprints, Goodrich un-

into the Police Headquarters room
where Goodrich was sitting.
"Hello, Merton," Henshaw said.
