Jury Weighs Verdict
In Revens Case After
3 Days of Testimony
A District Court jury had still
reached no verdict after three
hours of deliberation today in the
case of Reuben L. Revens, former
Defense Department psychologist,
on trial for sex offenses.
The complex case, which has
consumed three days of testi
mony, went to the jury of 10
men and two women at 4:15 p m.
yesterday. A half hour later, the
jury returned to receive additional
instructions from Judge F. Dick
inson Letts. At that time, the
jurors were excused for the night.
Revens, 41, is charged with as
sault and attempting to commit
indecent sex acts in the course
of treating a /riend for a
nervous disorder. The friend is
now in a New York institution.
The chief complaining witness
was the friend’s 48-yeaf-old wife,
a saleswoman in a downtown de
partment store.
Erotic “Psychodrama” Involved.
Testimony of witnesses for the
prosecution centered around in
cidents that took place in the
friend’s home last summer, in
volving a strange and erotic “psy
chodrama,” played by Revens and
the couple, during which the sex
offenses were said to have taken
Witnesses also brought out the
defendant’s association with a
group, labeled by the prosecution
as “Perverts. Inc.,” and "Revens’
Revellers,” who devoted themselves
to the study of erotica and gath
ered to watch obscene motion
The defense produced witnesses
to cast reflections on the moral
character of the defendant’s
friend. A statuesque red-headed
model testified that the friend had
once made improper advances to
her under the pretext of being a
prominent photographer.
Friend “Mentally Sick.”
In his summation, Defense At
torney Byron Sorrell described the
friend as a mentally sick person,
who “ingratiated himself with a
group which studied scientifically

congressional committee which
seized the newsaper earlier this
week and began an investigation
of its operations.
The Congressional Committee,
which took over La Prensa’s rec
ords Tuesday, has issued subpoenas
for the paper’s key officials to
appear at the congressional build
ing today.
La Prensa’s big plant has been
shuttered nearly two months by
boycotts of the pro-government
News Vendors and Printers’ Union
and now by congressional resolu

$2 million. «
The paper, which frequently
has criticized the Peron regime, *
was ordered seized by a Congress!
in which Gen. Peron's party holds
all the Senate seats and domin

Press Freedom Emphasized.
In his protest to Congress, Gain
za Paz declared:
“Press freedom, besides being
an individual right, also is the
right of the people—to read the
newspaper of their choice. In
exercising this right, the people
always have shown a preference
for newspapers that are inde
pendent and truthful and edited
at a high cultural level.”
Friends said that shortly after
he sent in his protest, Gainza
Paz tried to fly to Uruguay to
visit his mother. They said he
was forbidden to leave the coun
try because he has been accused
in federal court of violating state

ence to John Mooney of St. Louis.
The committee has said Carroll
has some part in Mooney’s busi
ness operations.
Senator Hunt, Democrat, of
I Wyoming clashed sharply with
Mr. Carroll at one point and
i stormed, “We don’t believe a word
!you are saying.”
Senator Hunt charged that high
officials of the American Tele
phone & Telegraph Co. co-operate
with large bookmaking syndicates
to install batteries of telephones.
When Senator O’Conor, Democrat,
of Maryland asked Mr. Carroll if
he desired to make any comment
on Senator Hunt’s allegation the
witness replied:
“None other than his statement
is untrue.”
Attempts to Apologize.
Later, Mr. Carroll said he wanted
to apologize to Senator Hunt and
explained that what he was at
tempting to convey was his belief
that there is no collusion between
telephone company officials and
Senator Hunt insisted that tele
phone company officials are aware
that gamblers operate extensively
with telephone company equip
ment. He said he intended to hav<.
telephone officials appear before
the committee and explain their
Mr. Carroll drew laughter from
the packed committee hearing
room when he told the Senators
he did not think any Federal law
could stamp out betting on horsp
“I think gambling is a biological
necessity,” the short, elderly wit
ness explained. “It gives sub
stance to people’s day dreams.”
Denies Any Bribery Attempt.
In St. Louis, Mr. Carroll said,
about 100,000 people “receive
pleasure and excitement from
gambling.” He estimated that
about 1,200 persons make their
livelihood out of illegal gambling
Mr. Carroll said he had never
attempted to bribe police officials
and said they had never inter
fered with him because “I never
directly accept a wager.”
Mr. Carroll told the investi
gators today they are wrong if
they think big bookies use “come
back” men to force down track
odds on long shots.
Mr. Burling took Mr. Carroll
through a series of questions about
the intricacies of the betting in
He asked about the activities of
Jo Urvanni, a “come back” man
who testified previously.
Bridling, Mr. Carroll said the
committee has a "probably false
idea” about comeback activities.
Committee members have con
tended that such operators act for
bookies, placing large bets at the
tracks at the last moment to drive
down the odds on long shots which
have been bet on heavily by the
bookies’ customers.
Carroll Snaps Back.
“That's a sort of second-degree
layoff, isn’t it?” Mr. Burling asked.
“No, I don’t think the question
of layoff enters into it,” Mr. Car
roll replied.
Mr. Burling said that as he un
derstands it, a comeback man re
ceives instructions to “throw a
great deal of money into the ma
chines (parimutuel) and distort
the odds in the last 60 seconds"
before a race.
“That is absolutely false,” Mr.
Carroll snapped.
He added that it “relieved the
obligation” of the betting com
missioner and also gave him cer
tainty that he would be paid.
Mr. Burling mentioned opera
tions he said had been carried on
at 318 Missouri avenue, in East St.
Louis. He said the volume of bet
ting there “ran into millions of
He asked if Mr. Carroll hadn’t
told a Senate Commerce subcom
mittee investigating big time book
making last spring that the law
of averages would insure a 15 per
cent profit ori such operations.
He said Carroll now seemed to be
contradicting this testimony with
his observations about the come
back activities.
Licensed in Nevada.
| "I don’t think it is contrary.”
Mr. Carroll replied.
Mr. Carroll said that many,
many people believe they are do
ing business with him when
actually they are not.
“You mean they do it with
Mooney?” asked Mr. Burling.
“That’s right,” Mr. Carroll re
Mr. Carroll told the committee
he is licensed as a betting com
missioner in Reno, Nev., but has
never done any business there.
In St. Louis, he said, he works
with the gambling organization
operated by John Mooney and
Michael Grady. This organiza
tion handled about $20 million in
1949, he said.
About half of the money bet
with the Mooney-Grady organ
ization is "laid off” to him, Mr.
Carroll testified. His personal net
profit from the operation in 1949
was about $110,000, he said. He
said he retired from the book
making business several months
ago and now has no income ex
cept from investments.

tionally known maker of betting

Assumes Air of Patience.
He began his testimony with
an air of weary patience.
First off he was asked if he
were prepared to say he would
answer any questions put to him.
“I don’t know,’’ Mr. Carroll
said, adding that he felt “fright.”
“I've never experienced any
thing like this before,” Mr. Carroll
said, gesturing to the television
cameras that rimmed the room,
the flashing of photographers'
bulbs and loud-speaker system.
“If I am unable to think clearly,
I certainly can’t answer questions
properly,” he said.
Senator O’Conor said the com
mittee agreed that news photog
raphers should complete taking
pictures immediately in front of
Mr. Carroll and then move back
out of the way. This was done.
Morris Shenker, Mr. Carroll’s
attorney, wanted to know if it
could be assumed that only the
proper questions would be asked
Mr. Carroll.
Senator O’Conor said that was
a correct assumption.
Tobey Calls for Action.
“We have spent three-quarters
of an hour in a fencing match,”
Senator Tobey, Republican, of New
Hampshire interrupted heatedly.
"Let's get down to brass tacks and
start the examination.”
Mr. Carroll still protested
against the TV and movie cam
eras and the possibility his testi
mony would be rebroadcast.
He told the committee that Mc
Farland had denied requests to
televise and rebroadcast his testi
mony, "and I was assuming . . .”
Mr. Carroll recalled he had tes
tified last April before another
.Senate committee investigating
racing. He said Chairman Mc
Farland of that group had denied
requests to televise and rebroad
cast his testimony.
"That question has already
been decided,” Senator O'Conor
cut in sharply. “We won’t waste
any more time on it.”
Lawyer Offers Complaint.
During the argument on TV,
Mr Shenker complained that
some movie companies had taken
pictures of Costello and then had
linked radio recordings of his tes
timony to the movies. He didn’t
want that to happen to Mr. Car
roll, Mr. Shenker said, adding:
“Any movies that are taken or
rebroadcasts that are made are
against Mr. Carroll’s wishes and
in violation of his constitutional
rights. He no longer is a public
figure. He is not engaged in any
business. He is retired.”
In the past, committee members
have disputed Mr. Carroll’s con
tention that he has retired as an
odds maker and a bet taker.
The scene of today’s hearings
was the somewhat ornate, marble
pillared Senate caucus room.
The hearing was delayed in
starting when an argument arose
over the placing of TV equipment
in an anteroom assigned to the
Senate Finance Committee. Fi
nance Committee aides said no
permission had been given for the
placing of equipment there.
Chairman Kefauver finally
straightened out the matter after
a 30-minute delay.
All the 300 seats in the big
hearing room were filled and
many were standing when Carroll
took the witness chair.
He was only the first of several
prospective witnesses for hearings
expected to run throughout the

that he would not be photographed

about flashbulbs Anally reached
the point that Senator O’Conor,
Democrat, of Maryland asked news
photographers to take their pic

Senator Kefauver, taking cogni

inquired whether floodlights of TV

Shaw's Net Estate $338,840;
Will Promotes His Alphabet
By the Associated Press
LONDON, Mar. 22.—Playwright
Goerge Bernard Shaw, a pioneer
British Socialist who hated taxes,
left an estate valued at $1,028,
254.22 (£367,233) but reckoned
after debts and taxes at $338,840,
his will and an accounting dis
closed today.
The 14-page document directed
that part of the money be used for
promoting a 40-letter alphabet
which was one of the Irish wit’s
pet projects.
Shaw died last November in his
little cottage at Ayot St. Lawrence
at the age of 94.
His net estate, after settlement
of all outstanding obligations, was
£301,585 ($844,439). Estate taxes
totaled £180,571 ($505,599).
Survey Authorized.
Shaw’s will directed his executor
to “institute and finance a series
of inquiries'’ to determine:
1. The number of people speak
ing and writing the English lan
guage in the current 26-letter
2. How much time could be
saved by substituting Shaw’s
alphabet, in w’hich each of 40
symbols would stand for a sound.
3. “The loss of income in Brit
ish and American currency” from
using the old alphabet instead of
Shaw’s proposed one.
Shaw also asked that a pho
netic expert be hired to translate
his play, “Androcles and the
Lion,” into the new alphabet, “as
suming the pronunciation to re
semble that recorded of His
Majesty our late King George V
and sometimes described as North
ern English.”
Copies in Both Alphabets.
He asked that copies be made
of the play in his alphabet and
in the standard 26-letter alpha-j
bet, with the versions side by
side, page for page. These copies
were to be presented “to public
libraries in the British Isles, Brit
ish Commonwealth, American
States North and South and to
national libraries everywhere in
that order.”
Shaw ordered that no rights to
his writings or plays should be
sold “which irrevocably binds
them for more than five years.”
He said that in dealing with such

siderations to the best of his judg

The will authorized the publi
cation of all letters he wrote to
the late Mrs. Patrick Campbell, a
witty actress who was long a great |
friend of his.
Shaw said Mrs. Stella Mervyn
Beech of London, Mrs. Campbell’s;
daughter, should devote the pro-;
ceeds to the education of "Mrs..
Campbell’s grandchildren and1
their children (such being her
own wish.'”
Bequests Left to Servants.
His will, dated June 12, 1950,
directed that funds not needed for
the alphabet project or other
specific bequests be divided
equally among the British
Museum, the National Gallery in
Ireland and the Royal Academy
of Dramatic Art in London.
A dozen annuities were left to
various friends, relatives and serv
ants. Shaw’s secretary, Blanche
Patch, received £500 ($1,400).
The will left each servant who
had been working for Shaw seven
years or more, a year's wages.
Those who had been with him
three to seven years received six
month’s wages.

Who can fit 60,000 sq. ft. of furniture into 40,000
sq. ft. of space. Not us. Not even after last week’s
big sale. Rather than see so much magnificent
furniture marred, we’re adding another large
group to the sale!
Furniture Sale!
TOMORROW AT 10 A.M_you;ll find us
in a fix we hope we can keep out of in the
future. Right now, we’re so cramped for
warehouse space, we have to sacrifice an
other fine grouping to make room. Hundreds
and hundreds of items are on sale . . . floor
samples, discontinued models, even entire
suites . . . almost every style, size, fabric,
color, wood. Last week the initial offering
brought a stampede of wide-awake shoppers.
Tomorrow the prices will be just as low
. . . and extra salespeople will be on hand!
