NEWSPAPER IS CLEARED OF FRAUD CHARGE Scripps-Howard Executives in Youngstown Win in Court Battle. (Continued From Page One) triul began, he has met with state's witnesses on numerous occasions and discussed their testimony. That, at the behest of County Prosecutor Ray Tiibmas, he had written a former Telegram em ploye in Belleville, 111., inclosing the prosecutor's personal check to meet traveling expenses, and later had taken the employe to the pros ecutor’s home for discussion of his testimony. When the decision was an nounced, a joint statement was issued over the signature of the de fendants and Felix Bruner, editor of the Telegram. In the statement, in part, the de fendants said: "While we realize that the deci sion of the court exonerating the four men charged with fraudulent advertising in connection with pub lication of the Telegram’s circula tion statements is conclusive, we, nevertheless, had looked forward to the opportunity to meet the charges by presenting the defense testi mony. Blames Discharged Employes "The defense case would have re vealed that the indictments followed a long series of incidents, including criticism by the Telegram of certain public acts of the prosecutor. "It would have shown that the charges were made by the prosecu tor after the case had been prepared by a number of disgruntled former Scripps-Howard employes, dis charged by this organization. "It would have shown that the Telegram founa, as far back as 1928, that there had been irregu larities in the circulation depart ment, that a circulation manager was discharged, and that the situa tion was cleaned up, as evidenced by a sharp drop in circulation fig ures following this action. “The defense further would have shown that Mr. Dowling came from New York expressly for the purpose of determining the facts and for the purpose of assisting the A. B. C. in getting the facts. “It would have shown that all de fendants spent long hours ferreting out the facts, obtaining them with difficulty from district men, most of whom later were discharged, and most of whom were witnesses for the state. Finally Obtained Truth "The defense case would have shown that in every instance the defendants ,made every possible ef fort to obtain the truth and that they did obtain the truth. "The testimony would have shown that liberal deductions from the fig ures, based upon facts obtained in complete investigation, resulted in a deduction of 912 copies from the published statement. It would have shown that the A. B. C. believed that this deduction was too large instead of too small, but that Mr. Dowling and he other officials in sisted that this large deduction should be made. "The Telegram, during the period covered by the state's testimony, had in its circulation department a number of men who were dishonest. When their practices were discov ered, they were stopped, the men discharged, circulation built by dis honest methods deducted from the circulation statement, and adver tisers notified.” For the last two years Thomas and the Telegram have been at odds. The fight started over denomi nation of public officials by power interests. Thomas was Indicted on several charges, including bribery, after a series of grand jury probes. The prosecutor blamed the Telegram for much of his trouble, although he was acquitted. After Thomas’ trial last fall, it was reported that he was trying to "get something on" the Telegram. Later, in 1931, in December, the Audit Bureau of Circulation started to probe the Telegram at the re-, quest of the Vindicator and the same agency started an investiga tion of the Vindicator circulation at the request of the Telegram. The result of the probe was the A. B. C. ordering a reduction of 1,300 copies a day in the October statement of the Vindicator and reduction of 912 copies in the Tele gram figures.

Sullivan. Action on the proposed ordinance was withheld at the council meet ing Monday night to await the com mittee’s report, which was made late Tuesday. Opposed to letting stand space on sealed bids, the committee recom mended rentals be decided by the safety board.

Elimination of six of the eight restaurants in the market was ap proved by the committee. The pro posed ordinance limits the total number of eating places to two.

THOXINE THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES CHIEF SUMMONS BAILIFF IN RAID 'TIPOFF^PROBE M Want to See Rariden,’ Is Morrissey’s Terse Call in Showboat Quiz. "I want to see Rariden,” was the order today of Chief Mike Morris sey following intimation Tuesday by Russell Dean, deputy prosecutor, that a combined federal and city police raid Monday on the Show boat, Keystone avenue and Allison ville road, had been “tipped off.” Morrissey had reference to Samuel Rariden, police sergeant, who serves as bailiff for Judge Wil liam H. Sheaffer. Rariden’s name did not appear 'among those of raiding officers, although Morrissey contends Rariden was one of them. "Rariden is one of my men. I want to know what he is doing,” Morrissey declared. Voiced by Wilson’s Aid The “tip off” intimation was voiced by Dean when he obtained a trial continuance to Dec. 6 in Sheaffer’s court Tuesday afternoon. Dean told Judge William H. Sheaffer the state desires a more extensive investigation, although Sol Bodner, attorney for Frank Cantwell, operator of the resort, and his associate, Claude Williams, insisted on immediate trial. Cantwell, charged with blind ti ger, and Williams, charged with keeping a gaming house, are free under bond. Williams was one of the opera tors of the famous “Log Cabin,” near Jeffersonville, which was padlocked for dry violation some time ago. The "Log Cabin” also is alleged to have been the scene of a “big money” dice game which drew gamblers from all parts of the mid dle west. Served Setups, Is Charge The blind tiger charge against Cantwell in the “Showboat” raid was based on the allegation he served “setups” to guests w’ho brought their own liquor. One of these guests who w-as seated before a highball in the al leged gaming room at the time of the raid, was a candidate for high office in the recent general elec tion. Williams is alleged to be the owner of gambling equipment which the raiders seized and also claimed ownership of a $2,000 “roll” hidden in a door casing. ATTACK ON PROTESTANT WORK IN ITALY MADE Pope’s Magazine to Assail American Methodists, English Baptists. By United Press ROME, Nov. 23.—A violent attack on Protestant activities in Italy, singling out American Methodists and English Wesleyans and Bap tists, will appear in the Catholic monthly, Civilita Cattolica, in an article inspired by the Vatican. The monthly is published under the pope’s protection. “The number of children fre •quenting Protestant schools in Italy has reached 10,000, mainly at Sun day schools, which is very dangerous because a Sunday school teacher must be essentially a missionary,” the magazine w r ill say, urging a cam paign to check further increase in the Sunday school attendance. American Lutherans and Episco palians, and British Anglicans will be exonerated. The Y. M. C. A. will be called dangerous because it takes youth under the guise of athletics. i APPLES SALE STARTED !
