GUARD COURT ON
Slayers Of Robert Franks
Nervous As Time For
Chicago, Sept. I.—Plans were be
Ing carefully made by the authorities ,
to prevent a demonstration when
Judge John R. Caverly passes sen
tence on Nathan Leopold and Richard
Loeb Wednesday morning.
Another day and the slayers of .
Robert Franks, the school boy, will
know their fate. Leopold and Loeb
are nervous. Tho words the judge
will speak Wednesday morning will
spell life or death for them.
A strong detail, of deputies and
police will be thrown about the
criminal building when Judge Caver
ly opens court.
"Only the defendants, the lawyers,
relatives of the youths and represen
tatives of the press will bo admitted
to the court room,” Judge Caverly
announced. During the. day he con
ferred with Chief of Police Collins
regarding measures to protect the
defendante and keep the crowd In
Many Threats Received.
u ne unusual precautions are part
ly due to the threats that have been
received since the wealthy college
youths w'ere arrested for the crime
last May. Judge Caverly has been
threatened wilh death If he does not
pronounce the death sentence, and
he has been threatened with death if
he does not show mercy and spare
Thousands of letters have been re
ceived by Judge Caverly. He did not
road all of them. Of those he read, 80
per cent, of the writers urged that the
slayers be spared.
Judge Caverly has given no intima
tion of what the sentence will he but
it is not expected the death penalty
will be imposed.
Leopold and Loeb pleaded guilty to
murder in the first degree and to
kidnaping. Under the laws of Illinois
both crimes are punishable by death.
Try to Keep Courage.
The youthful slayers tried to keep
up their courage Monday, hut it was
hard—it became more difficult as
each minute took Its flight and
brought them nearer to the zero hour.
“Pm not worried." boasted Loeb.
"Why should I worry? Would that
change the decision of the judge? I
don’t look nervous do I?"
It appeared certain that. Judge
Caverly would sentence the slayers
Wednesday morning but legal author
ities pointed out that Mr. Harrow
might spring another surprise. If he
concludes Judge Caverly is about to
pronounce the death sentence he
might enter a motion to withdraw the
plea of guilty and demand a jury
trial. Judge Caverly might have to
think that over awhile before pass

AMERICANS AND BRITISH TO
CLASH ON POLO FIELD TOD A Y;
YANKS FAVORITES BY 8 TO 1
BY W. S. FARNSWORTH,
Universal Service Correspondent.
New York, Sept. 8.—Down at the
spacious Meadowbrook field Tues
day afternoon the polo stars of this
country will meet England's best
players in a duel for the Internation
al trophy. Society will be well rep
resented and his royal highness,
Prince Edward, will be present to
cheer hl3 valiant countrymen.
It Is our opinion that the prince
will nroot in vain, for everything In
dicates that Uncle Sam's lads will
romp off with the series. The cup
defenders now rule favorites at X to
I, with none caring to back the
chances of the British challengers.
A hard blow was dealt to the
visitors when Louis Laccy, captain
of the British four,- announced Mon
day that it would be Impossible for
him to participate in the games. The
leader of the English team Injured
his shoulder before he came here,
but thought It would be In proper
shape for these games. A few days
after he landed Lacey was thrown.
That irritated the Injury, but It was
not until Monday that lie learned It
would be Impossible fot^ him to
\\ iih Lacey out of the lineup, a
new shift was arranged. Major T.
W. Kirkwood will bo at No. 1, Phil
ipps Hornby No. 2, Major Hurndall,
No. 8, and Atkinson at back. Major
Hurndall, who retired in favor of
Lacey as captain, will resume his
former position on the field.
Both teams rested Monday so as
not to run the slightest risk of suf
fering further injuries. They fin
ished their training Sunday with in
formal short drills. The game Tues"
day marks the first of three matches
which will be played, even If one
side captures the first two and the
trophy. The second match will be
played Saturday, weather permit
ting, and the third and final contest
a week from Wednesday.
