Landlord Loses 25th Appeal,
But Wins Praise for Legal Skill
The Municipal Court of Appeals
yesterday said "No" to each of eight
legal technicalities raised in the ap
peals of three cases involving a
rooming house owned by John A.
Savage, 70, who has been in Munici
pal Court 25 times since 1945 to
argue against the charges.
The appellate court, however,
paused long enough in its 14-page;
opinion to laud Mr. Savage's han
dling of the appeals.
“There is nothing in the record to i
show the appellant is a lawyer,”I
wrote Judge Brice Clagett. “But he
conducted his own defense skilfully
and persistently, with many detailed
references to legal precedents.” '

latter August 4 through the 7th.) j
The Rev. Hampton Adams of St.
Louis, president of the International
Convention, will address the opening
session of that gathering next Tues

Mr. Savage was convicted last
January on two charges of failing to
have a rooming house license and
one of failing to have a certificate of
occupancy for his premises at 1303
Fairmont street N.W. At that time.j
Judge John P. McMahon imposed
fines totaling $210, or 35 days in jail.
The owner has been free under an
appeal bond.
Throughout the many court ap- j
pearances of the case, Mr. Savage
insisted he was not operating a
rooming house but a private dwell
ing. The District building inspec
tor's office reported the number of
tenants living in the premises
brought it into the rooming house
category.
today said he will be unable to keep
the engagement because of the
pressure of business.
