Leopold and Loeb thought that they were intellectually superior and that they could commit the perfect crime and not be caught. They were brought in for questioning within 8 days and quickly confessed. Clarence Darrow was hired as their defense lawyer, getting them life imprisonment instead of a death sentence. Loeb was eventually killed in prison - Leopold was released after 33 years, dying of a heart attack at age 66.

It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

1971 - At the age of 56 years old, Olga was alive when in March, Intel shipped the first microprocessor to Busicom, a Japanese manufacturer of calculators.
