ENRIGHT CASE AGAIN PUT UP TO
Appeal to the Illinois pardon board
on behalf of Maurice Enright was
made yesterday by Attorney Prank-R.
The plea for Enright's pardon was
first made early in April by Attorneys
Charles E. Erbstein and John J. Co

for his pardon.

the board in Joliet, an echo of the old
