Veteran Fined $25
On Weapons Charge A 22-year-old Cumberland, Md.. veteran, who depended on a pair of brass knuckles rather than police to protect his money from thieves while visiting Baltimore and Wash ington, paid a $25 fine yesterday in Municipal Court for carrying the weapon. The veteran, Harry Paul Smith, who said he served with the Army’s 101st Airborne Division and since his discharge in January has work ed at the Cumberland railroad yards, told the court he had $170 and “I was afraid of getting roll ed.” Smith was arrested early Sat urday morning at Fifth and H streets N.W. Imposing the fine. Judge Walter J. Casey told Smith, “I’m letting you off lightly.” On a similar charge, Edward But ler, 19, colored, of the 600 block of B street S.E., was sentenced by Judge George D. Neilson ot a $500 fine or 180 days in jail. Butler pleaded guilty of the charge, which grew out of his ar rest in connection with a holdup last month of the High’s ice cream store in the 1000 block of Fourth street N.E. Police said a .22-caliber pistol was found on him.
