D.C. Jury's Conviction
Of Sailor in Robbery
Case Is Set Aside
The recent robbery conviction oi
Robert L. Robinson, 21, a sailor was
•et aside yesterday by Justice Alex
ander Holtzoff of District Court, who
ruled the jury's verdict was contrary
to "the weight of the evidence."
Justice Holtzoff granted Robinson
a new trial, giving him a good chance
for final acquittal. Robinson had
pleaded not guilty to the charge of
robbing a taxicab driver of $12 in
cash and the cab.
Meanwhile, two other sailors, Wil
liam A. Campbell. 22, and Elwood W.
McMaster, jr., 19, who were sta
tioned with Robinson at Dahlgren,
Va. have pleaded guilty to that
robbery and one other. The two are
•waiting sentence.
Robinson testified at his trial that
h· had entered the taxicab last
December to go home, but had been
followed into the taxicab by the
I other two. He charged they coerced
him into staying With them. Just
before entering the taxieab, Robin
son testified, he had been driven into
Washington from nearby Maryland
by one of his companions in a taxi
cab which, he said, had been stolen
by the other two. His companions
testimony was in his favor.
After the Washington robbery in
which Robinson was accused, the
Xpanions, it is alleged, robbed
cher cab driver after Robinson
had left them.
Justice Holtzoff said the authority
: of a judge to set aside a conviction
"should be exercised sparingly and
with caution." Such authority, he
added, "should be invoked only in
exceptional cases in which the evi
dence preponderates heavily against
j the verdict."
Film Actors Ask Overtime,
Pay for Being Interviewed
ty the Associated Pr«s
HOLLYWOOD, April 5.—Time
! and a half for overtime—even for
S5,000-a-week Grables and Gables—
ι and work time credit when being in
terviewed (even about one's own
ilife, loves and laurels) are among
the advantages actors want now.
The actors' overtime would start
after 40 hours.
The Screen Actors' Guild 10-year
contract with the studios expires
May 15. The Guild Board and its
j Negotiating Committee yesterday
: began circulating demands they
hope will be put in the new contract.
The 8,500 members have been called
to a meeting Wednesday to discuss
the demands, which also include:
That bit players (they speak a
line or two) be increased from $35
to $100 a day; or, if paid weekly,
from *115 to $350,
That contracts of actors getting
less than $1,500 weekly be limited
to three years. Most run up to eeven
years now.
That an actor shall not be loaned
to other studios without the player's
consent.
That beginners be paid no less
than $100 weekly. The rule now is
I $75—or less.
Senate May Proceed
With Tax Cut Debate
If Budget Is Delayed
■y th· Aiiociatcd Prws
, The Senate may start debate on
income tax reduction without wait
ing for House and Senate con
ferees to break their deadlock over
how much should be pared from
President Truman's 1948 budget.
Chairman Millikin of the Senate
Finance Committee said his group
; will go ahead with the tax bin
unless the conferees agree "within
I the reasonably near future."
He indicated he will wait no longer
than two weeks and that the Sen
ate may get the bill early in May. j
It would be "highly desirable" for
the oommittee to know what the
bucket cut is going to be, Senator
Milliken told newsmen yesterday,
but, if necessary, it can make its
I own estimates for the fiscal year
I starting July 1 and "report a bill
I to the Senate on that basis."
The House voted, to cut $6,000,
! 000,000 from Mr. Truman's $37,500,
000,000 budget. Hie Senate called
for a $4,500,000,000 reduction, with a
I payment of at least $2,600,000,000
ion the public debt.
The income tax bill passed oy me
House March 27 provided for a 30
per cent slash for taxable incomes up
jto $1,000 and 20 per cent for most
others, retroactive to January 1.
There have been strong indica
tions the Senate will make some
changes. Senator Taft, Republican,
of Ohio, chairman of the Repub
lican Senate Policy Committee, has
said that for one thing the cut
should be effective July 1 instead of
January 1.
Dr. Beauchamp to Speak
Dr. George E. Beauchamp, presi
dent of the Washington Ethical
Society, will address the group on
"The Meaning of Easter to Religious
