Bel Air Lawyer Disbarred ' James H. Broumel, of Bel Air, well known member of the Bel Air Bar Association, and for fifteen years a practicing Harford' attorney, was dis barred from further practice in a de cision filed with the Clerk of the Court Wednesday afternon by Chief Judge C. Gus Grason and Associate Judge J. Howard Murray. Their opinion said: “The profes sional misconduct of Broumel was so flagrant and far-reaching in its conse quences that we are required to dis bar him from practicing further and it will be so ordered” and “it was a grievous and serious offense for which there can be no palliation nor excuse.” Mr. Broumel had been charged by the Harford County Bar Association with professional misconduct auti perpetrating a fraud. Their petition said that Broumel had caused a true copy of a divorce decree to be issued for Lawrence Dorsey, a colored sol dier of Bel Ai.r when no such decree actually existed. Dorsey later tried to use the false copy to obtain a new marriage license, believing himself divorced, and then the fraud became known. Broumel is said to have re ceived a $75 fee from the soldier. Broumel admitted the general specifications of the charges at a hear ing on April 6, but ascked clemency in the form of suspension rather than disbarment. o FBI LAW ENFORCEMENT CONFERENCE Fred Hallford, Special Agent in Charge of the Baltimore Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an nounces that an FBI Law Enforce ment Conference will be held at Bal timore, Md., on Thursday, May 9, 1946, at 10:00 a. m., in the Crystal Room of the Emerson Hotel.

The court bluntly rules: YOU MUST PAY! Every uin-insured motorist is liable to huge hills which may be taxing him for 10, 15 or 20 years. A large portion of his earnings can be tagged “Paying for my Accident." And he immediately forfeits his auto mobile operating privileges until the judgment is satisfied in full. Even Bankruptcy proceedings will not discharge claims of personal liability. Don’t endanger your “FUTURE”. . . .don’t gamble with your savings plans.
