JUDGE FISHER TO GIVE GIRLS
FAIR CHANCE IN COURT
Judge Fisher has been sitting in
the morals court only a few days,
but he has installed one needed hu
mane reform. Yesterday he an
nounced that girls brought in as first
offenders will be given private hear
ings in his chambers. Fisher is try
ing to save the girls from the prying
eyes of the crowd of curiosity-stricken
persons whb infest the morals
court to witness the spectacle of
girls confessing their shame.
"I am, glad we have been able to
accomplish this at last," said Fisher.
"The plan will avoid the recital of
morbid facts in open court before
curious crowds and prevent mak
ing public the charge against the
girl or woman.
"Women attaches of the -court will
check up and ascertain from our(card
system whether the girl or woman
has been in this court before. If she
has not her name will not be placed
on the sheet for the day. Instead,
she will be -called into my chambers
and given a private hearing, and in
an-lnformal way we will try to get
at the facts.
"If it is then found advisable to
give the girl a chance I'm going to
let her go. Otherwise the case will
be filed and we will proceed in open
court." A) -
HOYNE SAYS SEVERAL BANKS
ARE IN ROTTEN CONDITION
-State's Attorney Hoyne 'declared
last night that he knew of several
private banks in Chicago which "are .
so rotten they can't stand up any
longer." Investigators for Hoyne
have inquired into six small banks
and found only two apparently sol
vent. "By solvent," said Hoyne, "I mean
the book value of the securities held
cover the liabilities. As to the real
value of the securities we cannot
tell. They may be able to cover the
deposits and they may not. Some of ,
tha fcaTiVs were neve'r solvent from N
the day they opened their doors. The
private banking game has the old
clairvbyant trust beat to a finish."
Hoyne gave Michael Michniuk,
head of the latest bank to fizzle, un
til today to appear at Hoyne's office.
If he does not the prosecutor will as
sign detectives to capture him.
