Details of a grisly murder unfold in a Manhattan courtroom today as Wayne Lonergan is being tried for the beating death of his “pretty heiress wife” Patricia. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle has put the trial story on the front page, with a picture of the broken candlesticks allegedly used for the murder, which seems to have taken place while a nanny was caring for the couples 18-month old son. The paper also headlines the story of Staff Sgt Arthur E. White, whose spine was severed by a Nazi bullet in the Sicily campaign. He had lost the use of his legs but may walk again thanks to ground-breaking surgery that spliced the damaged nerve. And then there is this fascinating tip for the thrifty: oval soap lasts longer than the square ones.
