STEALS GIRL'S RING DRAWS
THREE MONTHS' TERM
Walter J. Kersten, 20, nephew of
Judge Geo. Kersten, was sentenced to
3 months in the house of correction
by Judge Dolan today.
Kersten was charged with stealing
a pearl ring from Helen Eagan, 73su
S. Halsted.
"He not only stole the ring," said
Ass't State's Att'y Malcom B. Ster
rett, "but wheedled the girl's mother
out of $1.50, which he said he need
ed to make enough to buy the ring
back from the man he had sold it
to."
Sterrett wanted the youth held to
the grand jury. The boy's friends
wanted the charge changed from
grand larceny to petit larceny. Judge
Dolan said all depended on the value
of the ring. The girl said it was
worth $75; the boy said $5; an expert
said $10; so Judge Dolan dismissed
the charge of grand larceny, a charge
of petit larceny was substituted and
Kersten was given three months.
Girls are blamed by the mother,
Mrs. Jas. Kersten, 6132 Justine st,
for the boy's downfall. He has been
in trouble many other times.

COUNCIL MAKES NEW MOVE IN
SCHOOL BOARD DEAL
The city council made the latest
move in the row resulting from the
proposed investigation into the
finances of the board of education
when it requested the school board to
give Aid. Buck's school committee
access to the board books. Pres. Col
lins of the school board was asked to
call a special meeting to consider the
council order.
The action came after the notice of
the passage of a resolution to in
vestigate the board's finances became
sidetracked between City Clerk
Siman and Lewis Larson, secretary
of the school board, last week. The
school board must now admit or deny
the right of the council to examine its
accounts.
