MAY INVESTIGATE STATE'S ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AS
RESULT ,OF NOBLE CASE DISMISSAL
The dismissal of Carlotta No
bl&'s case against Columbus
("Jack")) Cuneo, son of the mil
lionaire fruit king, may lead to
an investigation of the state's at
This was the development to
day "when the charge of contempt
of court against MisS Noble's
mother was called before Judge
GemmilJ in the Court of Domes
Attorney Charles E. Erbstein
appeared for the Nobles, and ask

Erbstein said today that he
could bring into court certificates

Erbstein later said flatly that
