griino Napolltano, under sentence of death for killing her husband,
Will not be considered by an extraordinary session of the Ontario
parliament. i
A. C. Boyce, member of parliament, who had interested hlm
isclf In the woman's case, when he learned that she was about to
become a mother, today received a letter from Minister of Justic*
Aylesworth, saying that it was impossible to have the lawmakers
convened. Boyce had written asking for clemency for the woman.
Aylesworth's reply also said that the governor general would
not consider the case so far in advance of the execution.
