BUSINESSMEN IN KANSAS CITY COMBAT GANG

Kansas city, Mo., Oct 6---Two men were under arrest here today suspected of connection with the murder of Miss Florence Barton and the wounding of her fiancé, Howard Winter, while motoring in the country southeast of the city.
Fred Rollins, 22, who is said to have come here from St. Louis 3 weeks ago and Michael Shannon, 35, a waiter, both are said to have worn clothes that correspond with the description given of the men who did the fatal shooting.
Each was said to have ridden in a Buick car with two companions on the night of the murder. The bandits escaped in a Buick following the shooting.
Businessmen have been aroused by the crime situation in Kansas City and today were to name a committee of 10 to formulate a larger body of 100 to co-operate with authorities and citizens in a move to rid the city of criminal gangs.

Eva Dugan (1878-1930)
b. Salisbury, Missouri
She was a murderer, and when she was hanged in Arizona she was decapitated and her head rolled up to the feet of the spectators. Five of them fainted. Arizona soon decided to go with the gas chamber instead of hanging.
