It wa* learne^ that state haa officially placed upon Its road maps of the future the Hudson River boulevard aa design ­ ed by the Westchester County Park Commission after an engineering survey from the Yonkers-New York City line as far as North Tarrytown. Estimated Coat The Park Commisaion set the es ­ timated cost from the southern ter ­ minus to North Tarrytown at 334.- 000.000 and It has been roughly es ­ timated that the boulevard could be continued northward to Bear Moun ­ tain Bridge entrance at a cost to bring the total to around *60.000.000. The *1.000.000 appropriation from is stale for the Ossining river _rlve was obtained, through the ef ­ forts of Assemblyman Milan Good- :h of that village. It Is In ad ­ don to the *250.000 recently ap ­ propriated by the elate for an east ­ ern by-pass for the Albany Poet road around the village of OsStnlng, i relieve the congestion now exist- ig on that highway In Ossining. The *250.000 by-pass Is to run east Of Ossining's business and realden- centers and la to be started this ntually Suddenly as the big polir, moved along north on War! avenue Peacox gestured for t der to stop. The car waa swung around to the river aide of the street. There were several piles of big yellow tile such as Is used chimney flues. The party got out and Peac led them behind the piles of (lie the edge of th* embankment ovi looking the New York Central , ---- tracks and the Hudson River j nect at both terminals There he pointed to a handful of bany Post road, serving »* by-paa- ashes and fur on the ground be- 1 sea and parallel rout's, thereby of the stacks of tile. jUeving traffic on that heavily I road in^OMimn* may become i the Hudson given greater weight by the argument that state would not at this time . proprlate an additional million of dollars In Ossining, after the *250. 000 ha* ju*t been made available, for another by pass The theory advanced today that the state will continue build, or aid In sharing the cost least, of additional Imka to the Hud ­ aon River boulevard, wherever t grstlon develops on the Albany I road along the Hudson valley. Those relatively ehort links. Detectives scooped up what left of Dorothy's coat, put Peacox In the police car and went to Mount Vernon police headquarters where the murderer Identified a metal book end with which he said his wife struck him aa they quarreled j about \the old dump ” In Edison avenue. He also admitted owning a 32 calibre revolver found In the apartment Than back lo Yonkera again the party rods.

Then his dream of a \perfect erime\ might have been readied. It was also suggested on the touf yesterday that P*4eox might easily lhave teased his wife's body to the railroad tracks from the spot where he burned her coat and thus estab ­ lish that she ..ad died by accident. If he was bold enough to bum the coat almost In full view of the traf- iflc of Warburton avanue he might easily have recalled the scene with the body of his wife. It was pointed District Attorney Cbyne today ex ­ pressed himself as grateful to Eu ­ gene Bussey. former Yonkers schoolmate • of Peacox. for hla de ­ sire to aid the Investigation but said th*t after talking with Buaaey he did not believe he could help the cage or would be .used as a proeeeution witness at the trial two weeks hence. These many loose ends today w«re being woven together ns the district attorney worked to build up a 'case of premeditated murder against Peafcox for presentation to Ihe Grand Jury. District Attorney Coyne said he hoped to have his case In shape to present lo the In ­ dicting body next week but added that certain aspects of his Investi ­ gation might delay completion of the case so that It may not be pre ­ sented until May 15.
