13 Judges Ask Supreme Court
To Reconsider Bondsman Case
Lawyer Uses Carter Decision as Basis
In Move to Force Hearing on Practice Ban
District Court judges, making
still another attempt to have the
Supreme Court rule on their right
to refuse bondsmen’s licenses with
out hearings, today were faced by
a demand that they give an open
hearing to a lawyer they refused
to admit to practice here.
In an unprecedented move, Ho
mer Brooks, law clerk to Municipal
Court Chief Judge George P.
Barse, late yesterday asked the
United States Court of Appeals to
order District Court to tell him
why he has been denied admis
sion to the District Court bar.
i His petition was filed at about
the same time that 13 of the 15
District Court judges announced
they would ask the Supreme Court
to reconsider its refusal of Octo
ber 22 to review an appeals coifrt
decision in favor of John W. Car
The appeals court held last July
that District Court can not legally
refuse to renew Mr. Carter's li
cense, as it did in November. 1949,
unless it holds a hearing and tells
him in detail why it believes he
lacks proper qualifications.
The same basic issue is involved
in the Carter case relating to is
suance and renewal of bonds
men's licenses by District Court
judges and in the Brooks case
concerning District Court refusal
to permit lawyers to practice in
that court.
Mr. Carter twice has won the
support of the appellate court,
which handed down split decisions
each time, in his deihand for an
open hearing on his qualifications.
Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court
backed him to all practical pur
poses. when it refused to review
the appellate court ruling.
But in the latest development
of the four-year-old controversy,
Attorney William E. Leahy said
yesterday that on behalf of 13 of
the 15 District Court Judges he
will petition the Supreme Court
to reconsider its decision to review
the Carter case.

Police said the four—picked up
as they were unloading their latest
haul at the home of a southwest
grocer last night—have admitted
about 11 lootings of the Union
Wholesale Grocery Co., Inc., 1330
South Capitol street, which may
have netted them between $10,000
and $15,000 worth of groceries
since last July 11.
Their arrest set off an all-night
police roundup w’hich so far has
netted six retail grocers. All six
were charged with receiving stolen
Used Price Lists.
In quoting their cut-rate prices,
police said, the quartet used price
lists sent to grocers by Union
Wholesale. They compared the
goods they had on hand with
the printed price lists, and made
a 50 per cent markoff.
The four middle-men in the
scheme, each charged with one
count of housebreaking and grand
larcency, were:
John T. Ford. 26, of the 5300
block of James place N.E.: Horace
T. Nelson, 22 ,of the 1300 block of

third street N.W., and Louis Fut
terman and Morris Weisfeld, 300
block of Q street N.W.
At an arraignment today,

S. Lawrence set bond at $1,000 for
each of the 10 persons. The four
robbery suspects pleaded not
guilty and waived a preliminary
hearing. The case against the
six owners of the four grocery
stores was postponed until No
vember 28.
Spotted by Police.
The quartet of former employes,
police said, were spotted by officers
in a Fourth Precinct scout car
about 10:30 p.m. last night, as
they were unloading groceries at
the home of Rosso in the 600 block
of G street S.W. Police recovered
about $800 worth of food.
Sam Weinstein, co-owner of the
wholesale firm, told a reporter hi:
warehouse contains a stock valued
at $250,000, and that missing food
can be determined only by ex
tensive inventories.

New GWU Treatment
Reduces Big Cancers
To Allow Operation
Nitrogen Mustard,
Drug Help in Apparent
Cure of Two Patients
By Wallace E. Clayton
A new treatment which shows
promise of being able to reduce
inoperable cancers to a size which
will allow their removal w-as re
ported today by Dr. Calvin Klopp,
dir ector of the George Washington
University Cancer Cinic.
Dr. Klopp told of treatment of
inoperable cancers with a combi
nation of nitrogen mustard and
aureomycin. In a report prepar ed
for delivery today to the American
College of Surgeons at San Fran
cisco, Dr. Klopp said tumors in
two patients were reduced to a
size permitting removal after
treatment by the combined drug.
Both patients, he added, are now
back at work and show no evi
dence of further cancer.
The tumors were “bathed" over
a period of time by the drugs
w’hich were injected by arterial
cannulization. In this method,
developed at the GW clinic, a
tube is inserted directly into an
artery near the malignancy. The
tube can be kept in place for a
long period of time and the reg
ular dosage administered through
Dr. Klopp said that in addition
to the two cases in which huge
tumors were reduced to operable
size, 30 advanced cancer patients
undergoing nitrogen mustard -
aureomycin treatment had ob
tained symptomatic improvement.
He said research proved the aureo
mycin added to the nitrogen mus
tard was more effective than

Dr. Klopp said relief of pain
was a most prominent feature in
cases where pain was due to pres
ence of the disease in the treated
region only.
He said the combined drug do
sage, given along with radiation
therapy, should be halted when
changes are detected in the pa
tient’s bone marrow.
Dr. Klopp reported that post
operative examination of the re

showed the malignant cells had
been markedly reduced.

3 Bandits Get $97,000
At Milwaukee Bank
By the Associated Press
MILWAUKEE, Nov. 7.—Three
men, two armed with submachine
guns, held up a branch bank on
Milwaukee’s Northwest Side dur
ing a heavy snowstorm today and
escaped with an estimated $97,000.
The trio entered the bank in
midmorning, according to police
and Manager L. L. Wahl.
The two armed men remained
on each side of the doorway. The
third jumped over a railing and
ran behind the row of cashier’s
cages. He scoped the money into
a white bed sheet as one of his
companions at the door counted
off the seconds. As the count hit
zero, the trio ran from the bank
and jumped into a car at the
doorway. A fourth man drove the
vehicle away.
The bank is the northwestern
branch of the First Wisconsin
National, the State’s largest bank.
Mr. Wahl said the man who
scooped up the money failed to
enter the last of five cashiers’,
cages as time ran out.

of the Soviet Union is "directed
at strengthening peace and co

"Entirely different,” he said, "is
the policy of the ruling circles of

of aggression. Its aim is to estab

His speech was broadcast by
Radio Moscow.
Malinovsky described Western
“shouts about alleged war danger
on the part of the Soviet Union”
as "inventions.” He added:
"The popular masses, however,
will not let themselves be en

each passing day, they are be

The American-British-French

Mr. Vishinsky's request today
concerns the question whether
China will continue being repre

Soviet Union insists.
Mr. Vishinsky is expected to
