Five Members of Family
Present Alibi for Boys’
Club Head.
John P. Meshkoff, fourth precinct
detective detailed as director of the
Metropolitan Police Boys’ Club, was
exonerated of hit-and-run charges
at a hearing before Assistant Corpora
tion Counsel William H. McGrath
late yesterday.
Meshkoff admitted ownership of an
automobile which collided with a
taxicab driven by Herman Norris, 36,
colored, 1456 T street southwest, last
Friday morning, but testified he left
his car parked on Ordway street near
Connecticut avenue early Thursday
evening and did not see it again until
he went to the fourth precinct fol
lowing the accident.
Five Offer Alibi.
Alibi witnesses for Meshkoff, .who
said he stayed home and played cards
all evening, included his wife, Olive;
two sisters, Eugenia and Betty; his
sister-in-law, Lillian Mae Lynch, and
his brother-in-law, Paul Morgan. All
testified the detective did not leave
his home at 3446 Connecticut avenue
from the time he moved his car off
of Connecticut avenue to Ordwfty
street at about 7 p.m. Thursday until
he was called by Pvt. S. F. Malone
of the fourth precinct, after the ac
cident in which his car was involved.
All six witnesses testified they played
cards until about 11:30, when they
retired.
Lieut. Oscar Letterman said he
talked to Meshkoff on the telephone
at his home at 1:25 a. m. last Friday
after Norris had reported the acci
dent. The accident occurred at 12:45
Norris pointed Meshkoff out in the
crowded room and testified the officer
wore a gray overcoat on the night
©f the accident. Other witnesses, in
cluding Lieut. Letterman, testified
Meshkoff does not own a gray over
coat. When he appeared at the hear
ing, he was wearing a light tan over
coat. He said he also owns a black
one.
Three Injured in Crash.
Norris and his two passengers,
James Douglas, 30, colored, 1013
Fifteenth street, and Aloysius Brown,
24, colored, 28 Fourteenth street, were
injured in the crash, it was brought
out, but none seriously. McGrath
held that the information brought out
against Meshkoff at the hearing was
too meager upon which to base a
charge of leaving after colliding. He
said he did not believe a jury would
convict Meshkoff.
Meshkoff was represented at the
hearing by Atty. Charles E. Ford, who
stressed the time element between the
crash at 12:45 and the time Lieut.
Letterman and Pvt. Malone talked
to him on the telephone at his home
and pointed out that it would be a
physical impossibility for Meshkoff
to have secured other transportation
after his car was wrecked, even if
he had been present, and gotten to
his home in time to answer the tele
phone. Norris was represented by
Harold P. Ganss.
8 UTOPIA SEEKERS
BUFFETED BY GALE
Schooner Slips Into Key West
Port, Sails in Shreds,
Following Storm.
By the Associated Press.
KEY WEST, Fla., February 27.—
The weather-beaten schooner Fleet
wood slipped into port here yesterday,
her eight pilgrims to a Virgin Island
Utopia red-eyed and weary after bat
tling blustering winds that left sails
in tatters.
The schooner, in difficulty three
times since leader Maurice Allard and
his party of liberals first left Tampa,
encountered the gale at sea on a 152
mile voyage from Boca Grande to Key
West.
Allard, after again denying he and
his followers were nudists, went be
low decks of the Fleetwood soon after
arrival here, saying he “must get some
aleep.”
Others in the party said the ex
pedition likely would be delayed here
several days in patching the dam
aged sails.
Other than the unpleasantness of
the violent tossing about during the
gale and the loss of sleep, those
aboard the Fleetwood suffered no ill
effects.
