DEATH OF GIRL, 12,
Brother, 10, Testifies at Inquest
Exonerating- Driver of Car in
A coroner’s jury today declared ac
cidental the death Friday of Virginia
Assaid, 12, victim of a traffic accident,
; after an inquest marked by testimony
j of the girl’s 10-year-old brother, who
| was playing with her when she was
! struck by an automobile while playing
: in the street in front of her home, at
j fi55 B street N.E.
The verdict exonerated William E.
Muench, 38, of 1513 Oates street N.E.,
driver of the car.
The girl’s brother. Thomas Raymond
Assaid, contradicted testimony of other
witnesses that she ran into the side !
of the car.
"The front hit her first," the boy !
| testified, "then she twirled around to
I the side of the car and fell in the ;
street on her stomach.”
Under direct questioning by Coroner !
A. Magruder MacDonald as to who !
he had been talking to about t.he ease, j
Thomas replied, "My mother and that I
man back there," pointing to a spec
tator in the room, who identified him
, self as Edward Nace, a roomer at the
Police who investigated the case said
a doorhandle on the right side of the
car. which apparently caused the fata]
wound in the girl's stomach, had been
bent outward away from the ear by the
. impact. They told the jury there was
j no mark on the front, of the ear to
’ indicate the girl had been hit first by
that part of the machine.

WAGE LAW UPHELD
YEAR AGO TOMORROW
Since That Time Minima Have
Been Set for More Than 20.000
Women in D. C.
One year ago tomorrow the Su
! preme Court handed down the derision
which had the effect of validating
the District's minimum wage law.
The statute, which had been ruled
unconstitutional in 1923. after being
in operation five years, was put into
effect again by the unprecedented
derision of the high tribunal in over
ruling a previous action and upholding
the constitutionality of the minimum
I wage law of the State of Washington,
j The decision was handed down March
I 29. 1937.
Since that time the District Mini
j mum Wage Board has set basic wages
for more than 20.000 women employes
in the District. Last February 14 the
minimum wage set for retail clerks
went into effect. Some 12.500 women
! were affected by this decision.
| On May 8 the new basic wages for
women employed in hotels, restaurants
j and allied industries will go into op
; eration. affecting some 8.000 women.
The board is now engaged in fixing
minimum wages for female employes
in laundries and dry-cleaning estab
lishments, and it is estimated this
will apply to some 4.500 women work
ers. The board has completed its
public hearings in this case, and
' will hold the first of several executive
j Hearings tomorrow.
