Dorsey Interprets Court Ruling As No Reflection on Character Vernon M. Dorsey has been a Washington lawyer too long— almost 60 years—to criticize the Supreme Cowt, and he won’t start doing it now that a majority ruling has criticized him. The veteran parent attorney, who lives in Arlington County and who will be 80 on December 1. | still practices law here. His office is in the National Press Budding. The high court’s decision uphold ing a 1945 disbarment order by the Patent Office “naturally camt as a blow after all these years.” he conceded today. “But the less I say about it. the better.” he added. That was the extent of his comment on his long legal battle that g^ew out of an incident in 1926, came to a head 10 yeats ago, developed into Pat ent Office hearings in 1944-45, and went through the District Court and United States Court of Ap peals, before ending in the Su preme Court. Consoled by Dissent. He can—and does—find conso lation in the dissenting opinion by Justice Jackson, in which Justice Frankfurter concurred. That opin ion saw no reason why Mr, Dorsey should have been so harshly treat ed by the Patent Office when, ac cording to the dissenters, he was nothing worse than a party to an old Washington custom of “ghost writing.” The majority decision means that Mr. Dorsey, after his many years as a patent attorney, is per manently prevented from practic ing before the Pateiit Office. It does not disbar him as an attorney. Despite the setback Mr. Dorsey finds another source of comfort, besides the Court of Appeals deci sion and the Jackson-Frankfurter dissent in his favor. He said today that he interprets the high court ruling and the court proceedings in general as having cast no re flection on his moral character. Parries Questions. In a vigorous, jovial but firm voice, he parried questions about his career and future plans. The story of the legal battle is all in the record, he noted. If the Su preme Court decision had gone the other way, he chuckled, he might have been inclined to comment more expansively on the story and his life in general. In October, 1926, Mr. Dorsey, as Washington attorney for the Hart ford-Empire Co. of Connecticut,_ filed a supplement to the com-' pany’s application for a patent for an apparatus to feed molten glass. The supplement contained a trade journal article under the name of William P. Clarke, then president of the glass workers' union, ex plaining and commending the ap paratus. The patent was issued in January, 1928. That article also was used in connection with a 1932 patent in-: fringement case brought by the: Hazel Atlas Co. against Hartford Empire. The Supreme Court, in ij^4, ruled for Hazel Atl»g. Meant On Airport Contract A meeting of Washington taxi cab drivers will be held m the next 10 days to discuss the Na tional,Airport regulation that gives exclusive privilege of carrying in bound passengers to one taxi concern, it was announced today. The announcement was made by Jack Royer, president of Com | bined. Cab Services, Inc., which represents some 1.500 drivers of nine companies. Mr. Royer said drivers of the other companies probably will attend. The time and place of the meeting have not yet been set, he said. The airport taxi contract is held by Airport Transport, Inc., and Combined Cab is protesting the contract provision that gives Air Transport exclusive right to carry in-bound taxi passengers. Bennet H. Griffin, airport ad ministrator, who received Mr. Royer’s letter protesting the re gulations said the letter has been referred to the Civil Aeronautics Administration legal department. : Meanwhile, Airport Transport, j inc., issued a statement outlining j its services, both by group riding limousines and individual cabs. The statement pointed out the company has held the airport taxi concession for eight years and that, during that time, It has returned about $240,000 to the Government. A CAA spokesman said the objective of giving a contract to a single earrier in return for a percentage of the company’s gross receipts was to help make the airport as self sufficient as possible.

JOIN ’ SAVE The Christmas Club Way Christmas Club a corporation • Founded by HEBBiBT F. tAWll 341 MADISON AVINUK, NSW YORK 17, N.Y. while, in 1939, in the course of anti-trust proceedings against Hartford-Empire in a Federal court in Ohio, witnesses disclosed that the trade journal article of 1926 was written, not by Mr. Clarke, but by Roswell F. Hatch, a Hartford-Empire employe. Hearings Opened In ’44. After the Supreme Court deci sion in the Hazel-Atlas case, in volving charges of fraud agajnst Hartford-Empire, the Patent Of fice opened disbarment hearings against Mr. Dorsey, Mr. Hatch and two other men in November, 1944. Mr. Dorsey denied knowing Mr. Clarke did not write the article. The Patent Office board ruled Mr. Dorsey had known Mr. Hatch wrote it. It disclosed that failure to disclose the fact in the patent application helped influence the issuance of the patent. It also brought out that Mr. Clarke re ceived $8,000 from Hartford-Em pire early In the 1930s, although there was no Evidence or charge that Mr. Dorsey knew of it. By a 7-2 vote the board voted permanent disbarment of the four men in January, 1945. The two members urged only a one year suspension. Mr. Dorsey alone appealed to the courts. Judge James W. Morris, in January, 1947, upheld the Patent Office or der. The Court of Appeals, in a 2 to 1 decision, last January, ruled for Mr. Dorsey. * The majority opin ion of Judges Miller and Clark de scribed the Patent Office proceed ings as “an example of bureau cratic lynch law” and as a “kan garoo court.” Judge Edgerton, dissenting, said the evidence was sufficient to support the order. Attorney William E. Leahy, rep resenting Mr. Dorsey before the Supreme Court, argued that the 1944 Patent Office proceedings! dug up a “stale” case from 1926! and evidence that depended on! “fading memory instead of docu-i mentary proof.” He declared that testimony in the court proceed- \ ings in the 1930s against Hart ford-Empire was used against Mr. Dorsey by the Patent Office, al though he had no connection with subsequent fraud charges.

Man's Bond Doubled In Sex Case Here A $2,000 bond set Saturday tor a 58-year-old man accused of tak ing indecent liberties with a 7 year-old girl was raised to $4,000 yesterday at the request of the Government. Assistant United States Attor ney Thomas A. Wadden, jr„ said he asked for the bond increase because he felt persons charged with offenses under Public Law 615, the so-called sex law, should be kept off the streets and away from the public until they have had proper psychiatric examina tion. The defendant, John S. Laco varo of the 200 block of A street N.E., was arrested Friday night when a citizen called police and reported seeing Lacovaro making indecent advances to the girl. Police said they observed the ac tion before making the arrest. Lacovaro, a one-legged carpen ter, appeared before Municipal Court Judge George D. Neilson Saturday, when the $2,000 bond was set pending a hearing yester day. After Lacovaro waived a pre liminary hearing, Judge Armond Scott ordered the man held for the grand jury. It was then Mr. Wadden asked the higher bond. EDUCATIONAL. I * Add Strayer training—busi ness education on the college level — to your general or commercial training.
