Suit When "Radio Group" Figures Are Aired in Court I "Pretty Nelly Kelly," otherwise Miss Elizabeth Hines, of "The O'Brien Girl" fame, recently bewitched the Radiophans by broadcasting some of her song hits from the WOR Station, fiewark, N.

M. Lamm WASHINGTON, D. C — A gigantic plan is being perfected for the catching of criminals by use of a Radio crime net, says William J. Burns, the foremost detective in the United States, formerly directing head of the William J. Burns International Detective Agency and now Director of the Bureau of Investigation of the Department of Justice. Mr. Burns, when interviewed by a representative of Radio Digest, said that he is much interested in the development of the use of Radio in connection with his work.
