Visitor V/ho Gave $100 Tips
Under Observation at Gallinger
Brought $21,000 to
Capital, Has Only
$6,242 Left
Cornelius La Roy of Lansing,

town would like to have met this
week because of his habit of giv
ing away $100 bills, is under ob
servation in Gallinger Hospital to
Meanwhile, police awaited the
arrival here from Kalamazoo,
Mich., of the man’s brother, who
may throw additional light on the
39-year-old former machinist, who
reportedly gave away $13,000 here
since Saturday.
When Mr. La Roy was taken
from police headquarters to Gal
linger yesterday, he had $242 in
cash and another $6,000 tucked
•way in a local bank.
That apparently was all that
was left of $21,000 he said he
brought to Washington last week.
The bountiful giver told de
tectives he came here to arrange
for a passport to Cape Town,
South Africa, which he said he
left at the age of three to make
his fortune in the United States.
Mr. La Roy told police he saved
up money- while working in an
automobile factory, then quit his
job and turned to the stock mar
ket in which he appeared to have
made a modest killing.
He told reporters that, if he had
the money back, he w'ould give
It away again and added: ‘T don’t
care anything about money.” Cab
drivers, waiters and the like bene
fltted the most from Mr. La Roy’s
largess—one cabbie to the tune of

Isadore Kline appeared before
the ABC Board yesterday with an
application for a transfer of his
license from 201 H street N.W., to
107 H street N.W. The application
was opposed by Isaac Shuster,
owner of a store at 101 H street
NW. Mr. Shuster said there is no
reason for another liquor store
in the block since his establish
ment can supply all the needs of
the neighborhood.
Mr. Kline appeared before the
board a few years ago when Mr.
Shuster applied for a transfer of
his license* from 11 H street N.W.
to his present address. At that
time Mr. Kline made the same
argument, but the board granted
the transfer.
Three years ago, Mr. Kline
asked for a transfer of his li
cense from 201 to 107. Again Mr.
Shuster appeared in opposition.
The board granted the transfer,
but Mr. Kline did not move. Now
the dovernment has taken1 over
the property at 201 H street and
they have informed him he may
not sell liquor on Government
property. He has been given six
months to vacate.
The board took the case under
