Mrs. Alma Wurtzbarger's plea to the president of the
United States that she be pardoned from the Oregon state
prison, where she is serving a ten-year sentence as a federal
prisoner for the murder of her husband, has been denied by
President CooHdge and the department of justice has dis
missed the case, according to information received by Warden
A. M. Dalrymple from federal authorities at Washington,
D. C.
Mrs. Wurtzbarger and friends working in her behalf
I made the plea for her pardon
health. There was opposition to this, however, particularly
from the Spanish war veterans, of whom her husband was
a member.
Mrs. Wurtzbarger killed her husband with a hammer
while he slept at their home on the government grounds at
Chemawa. Her story of threats made by her husband against
her life proved to be of much weight in the legal proceedings
following her arrest.

Curtis D. Wilbur, chief justice of
the California supreme court, an
nounced tonight that he had re
ceived a telegram from President
Coolidge tendering him the office
of secretary of the navy, made
vacant by the resignation of Edwin
Dcnby, and that he had accepted.
Justice Wilbur said he tele
graphed to President Coolidge that
she would arrange to . como to
Washington as soon as his ap
pointment was confirmed by the
Chief Justice Wilbur has been
one of California's leading lawyer-jurists
many years. He is
known especially well for his work
In behalf of child welfare, bdth
as an official and as a citizen.
While he was Judge of the su
perior court In Los Angeles he or
ganized the , juvenile court there
and dratted several bills which lat
er formed the basis of California's
juvenile court law. The judge
also is prominent ag a Sunday
school worker.
Judge Wilbur was born in
Boonesboro, Iowa, May 10, 1S67,
and wes educated at the public
schools there. He attended high
school at Jamestown, N. D. He

in a formal statement that he
could not escape the conclusion
that he did not possess "the essen
tial qualifications or training for
