MR WUHK GROWING,
SAYS DR. CRICHTQN
Northwest Red Cross Head
f Visits Portland.
VETERANS' NEEDS TOLD
Dlabjllty Cases Declared Ukely to
'-. Inorca.se In Xumbers
I Until 1929. "
Meritorious disabled or sick ex
soldiers who need care and assistance
have been steadily Increasing In num
ber since the spring ot 1919, end It
was predicted that the peak load of
disability cases which must bs cared
lor in the United States will not be
reached until 1929, Dr. James E.
Crichton. general - manager of the
northwest division, American Red
Cross, declared yesterday In an In
terview setting forth the work that
the Red Cross Is doing In post-war
reconstruction among, the veterans.
'- Dr. Crichton, who Is making a tour
of the Red Cross chapters in his di
vision, spent two days In conference
with local Red Cross heads, and left
last night for Seattle, Wash. He said
the organization is making an effort
to live up to Its war responsibilities
toward the American soldiers, and is
carrying out a campaign of recon
struction work that the average citi
zen thinks has been completed In the
three years since the closing of the
Work 'Is Increasing.
".' Instead. Dt. Crichton said, the cases
coming to the attention of the Red
Cross are Increasing at a rate which
makes it necessary for thai organiza
tion to give up its former work -with
soldiers . and their families who
merely need assistance and center on
those cases which no humane person
can turn down.
"The Red Cross was under orders
to prepare to discontinue practically
all war work as unnecessary by July,
1919," said Dr. Crichton. "We all
scouted the prediction of American
medical authorities that the disabil
ity cases would increase until 1929,
tut the actual records of the organi
sation show a steady increase from
July, 1919, to the present, with no
sign of decrease.
Mental Cases Described.
"There are cases of mental de
"engrement that send many-, soldiers
to our asylums and minor mental
difficulties that make men more or
less irresponsible and subject to hos
' fctal care. People sometimes are dis
jPsed to criticise apparently sturdy
xoldiers who are irresponsible and
not capable of holding a steady job.
But we find it actually a fact that
many who are perhaps able to settle
back Into their old surroundings are
unable to adapt themselves to new
conditions and hold a job. I attribute
It to modern warfare and the un
speakable horror which many of these
men have been through. During the
past year the Red Cross has expended
between 110,000,000 and $12,000,000 in
the United States toward the care
and relief of ex-soldiers.
North-Test Men Aided.
' "The northwest division, including
Oregon, Washington, Idaho apd
Alaska, has 100,000 men who saw
service in the army. Proportionately,
I believe it is true that the Red Cross
has expended asnuch or more in this
section as in any in the United States.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars
have beeri paid out for the assistance
of ex-soldiers and their families
where help was needed.
"We find that people who are not
in touch with conditions are prone to
believe that the ex-service men have
had time to adjust their problems and
take care of themselves. They have
hot. Men come into our offices who
are so weak they can hardly walk,
simply because they were not willing
to ask for anything until they were
in such shape there was no alter
native. Help Given as Duty.
"In the Red Cross administration
the aid we extend Is a duty to them
and not a charity. The Red Cross
worker in the northwest division
who does anything for a soldier as
an act of charity is summarily dis
charged, for .there is no such thing
as charity from us to a service man
whose case is deserving. . We feel
that it is something due him from us
as a representative of the people."
. Portland's share in the war work
will increase with the opening of the
government hospital here next month,
according to Dr. Crichton. It has been
found that cases in need of medical
help and other assistance are drawn
to the vicinity of hospitals devoted
to the work.

The Holmes residence is Just out

"We still believe Gardner Is on the
Island," Maloney said. 'Our greatest
trouble is fog, for a man would have
a better cnance to leave tne island
during a heavy fog than ir the dark
ness of a rainy night. We are con
tinuing to center our efforts on the
west side of the island, for it is there
we believe he is hiding.
Gardner escaped in the nick of
time. Maloney said. He revealed that
he was perfecting plans to transfer
Gardner to Leavenworth federal peni
tentiary, because he realized that the
MsXeil's island prison offered oppor
tunity for the outlaw to escape.
The warden said that as soon as
Gardner was brought here in June he
requested additional guards. When
these were not obtainable he then de
cided it would be best ta confine
Gardner at Leavenworth, where his
propensity for escaping would have
smaller opportunity to manifest it
self than here. He had hoped the
transfer would be effected in two
weeks when the bandit broke away.

' In Its general policy, the Red Cross
Is attempting to ally itself more
closely with the American Legion and
other service men's organizations
which are fostering the best type of
Americanism within their ranks. Dr.
Crichton said. In all its post-war
work, the organization has tried to
step in and smooth out the little dif
ficulties that have rankled In the
heart of the ex-soldier and tended
to make him feel that he was not
being justly treated.

With this much at least in mind.
Maloney doubled his precautions for
; That Gardner Is desperate was
shown by his attempt to rob the
house of Charles Savage, one of the
prison guards, last night. Savage's
home is only about 300- yards from
the prison, yet Gardner did not hesi
tate to try to break into it in what
his hunters believe to have been an
attempt to obtain food, civilian
clothes xind a pistol. Maloney de
clared the outlaw picked Savage's
house because he knew him and knew
that his clothes would about fit him.
Savage, who was asleep, . was
aroused by his wife when she beard
the intruder trying to force his way
In. He fired two shots after the flee
ing figure, but without results. He
was convinced, however, that the ma
rauder was Gardner.
A short time afterward John Sea
burg, who lives about a mile from
Savage, heard someone prowling just
outside his house. The stranger fled
when Seaburg went out to investi
gate. Last night's amusement was pro
vided by a calf that was inconsider
ate enough to be mistaken for Gard
ner by three guards. The trio of
searchers closed in on the animal and
were just about to discharge a fusil
lade of bullets against It when they
discovered its bovin Identity.
. If Gardner's quest at the Savage
home had been successful, it Is be
lieved, he would have demanded food
and clothing from Mrs. Savage.

had to kill him."
So spoke Mrs. Alma Louise Wurts-
barger. who crushed her husband's
skull with a blacksmith's hammer In
their home at Chemawa. She was
brougnt to Portland yesterday by
Deputy United States Marshal Mann
for trial in the federal court.
When arraigned before United
States Commissioner Frazer, Mrs.

a black satin dress, blue hat with a

- Gallagher Old Friend.
"Who Is Charles Gallagher?" Mrs.
Wurtzbarger was asked.
"I wish that I might keep his name
out of this,"said the woman, as she
bit her Hps and the tears came into
her eyes. "But If, I must tell; he was
a friend before I married Wurtz
barger. "I was the housekeeper at the state
feeble-minded 'institution last year
and Gallagher was employed there.
He was an ex-convict and was scorned
and shunned by the other employes.
I liked him and was kind to him.
Several times I went out with him
and almost consented when he asked
me to marry him. I would have been
better off if I had taken him.

"No it did not I killed my husband
because I knew he would kill me. It
was a case of self-preservation. I
have lived in heir from the time I
married Wurtzbarger May 28, and
from that time on until I killed him
life vas only abuse for me.- Every
day he would threaten to kill me
when I asked to be free from him.
Every man I had ever known was his
enemy. He hated for me to mention
my divorced husband who died some
time ago. He hated Gallagher and
every other man who ever spoke to
me. He deserved to be killed." - .
Mrs. Wurtzbarger was crying and
her frail frame shook. " i .
"I have been an invalid for many
years," she continued. "I left Arizona
six years ago and have been travel
ing from place to place In an effort
to find some place where I could be
relieved of my sufferings from asth
ma. My strength is almost gone.
-"When I went downstairs to get the
hammer early Sunday morning it was
all I could do to carry it upstairs,
where my husband was sleeping. I
was not angry I knew I had to kill
him, so I used all my strength. I do
not know whether I used one hand
or both.tr how many blows I struck
him. I wanted to make a good job
of it, and I did.
Wurtzbarger was kind to me when
we were going together. We met first
along last Fabruary and were mar
ried In May. . He professed to love
me devoutly and l thought l loved
him, but after we were married he
became a devil and repeatedly struck
and beat me. Often times I have car
ried marks made by blows from his
fists for weeks.
"The only -avenue of escape from
such a brute was murder, and I chose
that avenue." -
Straight and Intend to keep that way.
"There is nothing that I would not
do for the woman I love. I will re

my position, and help her if I can."
Two letters alleged to have been

Charles Gallagher In this city, and

freedom and a divorce if he would

"One of these letters I am sure was
written while Wurtzbarger was
threatening his wife, for she later I
wrote a second letter In which she
said that her husband had Btood over
her with a gun while she spoke,"
said Gallagher, ex-convict, who is
living down his past and making I
good, and who yesterday made known
his identity in Portland so that he
might shield and defend the womaa
who stood by him when he was in
"I believe that Wurtzbarger I
planned to kill his wife, but was
afraid to do so with the letters in

the letters as he requested, and I

GALiLAGHER TO AID WOMAX

Made a Man of HJm.
Gallagher made no denial of the
fact that he loves Mrs. Wurtzbarger,
and that he is willing to do' anything
in his power to aid her now that she

'She was the one person who stood
by me and tried to make a man of me
after my release from the Oregon
state prison," he said last night. "I
came out of the prison a criminal, dis
gusted and sore with the world. I
got a job In the state feeble minded
Institution at Salem, employes and
attendants knew I was an "ex-con"
and would have nothing to do with

with." . .
"Were there any terms of endear
ment in the letters Mrs. Wurtzbarger
wrote to you?" Gallagher was asked.
"There were not," he replied. "The
letters were nothing more than what
might pass bteween. two friends. The
first 4etter might have been a little
more friendly than the last. In the

threatened her life.
Gallagher was a bartender In Asto

he was paroled.
"I went to California and .worked
17 months." he said last night "All
the time I minded my own business
and kept to myself. I neglected to
report to the parole board and was
picked up and sent back to prison.

met Mrs. Wurtzbarger. She made a
