No Light On Mtive Of Crine, Jury
Returns Verdict Of Wilful
(By Associated Press)
DUBLIN, July 11.-While the Irish
Free State moi rns the death of Kevin
O'Higgins, the government is making
every effort to find and punish his as-
sassins. Civic guides made nine ar-
rests in, Dublin today of men suspect-
ed of complicity or of the actual mur-
der. They will be arragned in the
police court tomorrow.
No light, however, has been thrown
on the motive for the crime. The Re-
publican leaders "have publicly repu-
diated responsibility for it. On the
other hand, ,fears that the assassina-
tion of the vice-president of the coun-
cil might have a serious aftermath in
the way of disturbances have happily
not been fulfilled in Dublin, and Ire-
land generally remains calm. On all
sides expressions of horror at the
crime and sorrow over the loss of a
great 'statesman . and lover of his
country are heard.
Professor John McNeill was the
principal witness at the inquest to-I
day. His testimony was r purely
formal description of the tragedy as
he witnessed it. The medical testi-
mony proved that anyone of the many
body 'wounds, was sufficient to cause
death, and Professor lVIcNeilI said he
realized the moment he approached
the stricken minister that the wounds
were mortal.
The jury returned a verdict of wil-
ful murder and adder a rider condemn-
inrg in the strongest terms the cruel
crime and trusting that the murder-
eis would be brought to justice.
Cabinet Convenes
The' Free State cabinet was called
into seskion immediately to decide on
the necessary steps in what is looked
upon as a serious situation, for the
sla'in official was regarded as a bul-
vark of the Free State cause. He had
only returned to Dublin last Friday
from a League of Nations conference
at Geneva. He had conducted a vigo-
rous country-wide campaign in behalf
of the government candidates in the
recent parliamentary elections.

Summer session number 1,547 accord-
words this is 41 per cent of the total

Two of the students hold four de-
gress, thirteen hold three, 227 hold
two and the remaining 1,305 hold one

a fusillade of very fast cracks kept

a few stray ones which zipped over

fact that Joe College gets $25 a piint

think the situations and dialogue can'
be vouched for as fairly good Ameri-

ter-it's funny.
Because of the nature of the dia-
logue, there are parts in "Cradle
Snatchers" where the most mediocre
acting would get a hand; but the
players rose admirably with their,
lines. There are other places, in-
deed, where there is grave danger of
a drop if the acting is not ingenious
