against a strong scrub team, and j
'here were no casualties during its I

'before the game with Dennsylvania |

j squad leaves for Washington.
The backfield was intact. Con #*v

| The hnoks were not taxed greatly,
j however, and many pass plays were
jused. Barchet. the star runner of the
backfield, who was kept out of most
of the Pennsylvania game last Satur

TO PRESERVE PEACE
Melvina Colbert, a well-known col

street in the western section of the
city, has been given a not he- chance
to get on her good behavior and s'ay
there. The chance was given her by
Judge Robert Moss in the Circuit
i Court this afternoon.
Melvina was brought to trial for
general disorder in her household
This was testified to by several wit
nesses. The negress also had some
witnesses who told the court that her
household was not as bad as had bt*en
! pictured. Cpon the conclusion of the
trial, Judge Moss announced that tes
timony of eye-witnesses of alleged
disturbance was in the preponderance
of that of others who had not ob
served anything wrong, and that Mel
vina therefore, was guilty. However,
the Judge referred to the fact that
Melvina had done somewhat tetter
-dnee the time she served time in the
House of Correction, and that he
would give her another chance. He.
therefore paroled her upon fttrnish
i mg peace bail of SIOO.

ANOTHER TRIAL, SAYS
PROSECUTING ATTORNEY
Tlu- jury in the l ircuit t out r
before which Mis. Marlrelle IV.iso
was tried on a charge of accessory
after tlu- fact in connection with
the murder of J. Bernard Patti
son. of near Savage. Howard
county. May 11. last, having .Its
agreed last night, tlu- accused
woman was today released on
hail in the sum of $?,. r io, and -lie
lias returned to her liottu- m
Howard county. Slu- was accoin

Pease, from whom she has been
separated for two years, and it
is understood here that a freon
filiation has been effected be
tween them. Her husband also
furnished part of the secant \
To lie Tried Again
Pending trial of the e.ne, Mr-.
Pease bad been confined in jail for
3 months. State’s Attorney Clark, of
Howard county, announced that th
woman would again be brought to
trial toil itid not say when.
The jury retired shortly after 6
o'clock. after counsel for both sides
had finished argument. At 6:45 a
message was sent to Judge Moss that
the jurors could not agree, hut he
sent word to the jury that It must
’•onsider the case further. Dinner
was then sent to the jury room. Ai
10 o'clock the jury again reported if
could not agree and was discharged.
Mr. Clark, in addressing the jury,
isked for a second degree murder
verdict, pointing out that William C.
'’’ronmiller, indicted jointly with Mrt
P.asC for tlu* killing, had already
teen convicted of murder in the sne
>nd degree and had been sentenced hv
ludgc Moss to IS years in the Peni
tentiary.
The ease of the prosecution was
built around Mrs. Pease’s alleged con
fession to detectives that she had
brown the pistol with which Pattisou
was killed into a quarry near her
home shortly after the murder. The
nlstol, according to the alleged con
’ession, was given her by Cronmiller
ifter the crime.
Defense Changed Turtle*
The defense went into the trial with
the intention of offering no testimony,
hut at the early conclusion of the
State’s case changed the program and
decided to place Mrs. Pease oil the
stand in her own defense.
Throughout the presentation of the
proßeeution’s ease the little woman
sat watching every move, listening to
every word and now and then posting
her lawyers, but always apparently
very cool. Not even when Ihe State’s
Attorney of Howard county wuih read
ing the endearing letters she w rote m
the Ellicott City jail to Cronmiller,
the man jointly indicted with her for
murder, convicted and now In thn
“Pen,” did she wince Not once did
she change color, not once did she
seem confused or abashed. She had
in the trial of Cronmiller for murder
testified against him and helped the
State to send him to prison for eigh

letters giving evidence of the rela
