' As 2 Boys Confess Murder

Rockford, 111., March 5 (AP)—-—A man
under sentence of life imprisonment
for murder sat in a plainly furnished

thild- floor room of a New Orleans,

rooming house hiding from the law.
In the same building on another

floor was his young wife, cooking his
supper to take to him.-

The man was Henry Olson, Rock-
ford automobile mechanic, convicted
of slaying Floyd Stotler in an oil

station holdup last September At
liberty pending appeal for a new trial,
he had fled with his wife, forfeiting
his bond

Mrs Olson went out and bought a
‘newspaper placed it on the tray with
the food and cairied it to her hus—
band’s room. Glancing at the news-

papei. Olson saw these wmds which
leaped out at him from under a Rock:

‘Henry Olson, wherever you are;

He read that George Bliss and
Morris Mahan,1’7-year—old boys, had

the crime for which Olson had been

The Olsons were back in Rockford
today. The sentence of life impris-
onment remained over the: 26-year-
old mechanic, but its fangs had been‘
removed. After the a raignment ‘of
Bliss and Mahan to ay, provided
there was no hitch, Olson’s attorney,‘
