it is hard to. see .just what gam
blers have to-, do with the shooting
of Belfortfby Annenberg.
The; shooting followed a Tribune
night, raid, the alleged purpose of

But the shooting of EJeflord by A'n
nenberg did not occur during the
raid on Larman's pool hall by the
Tribune; it occurred after that raic'
was over, and Belford did not come
out of Larman's pool hall and is not
