Police Auction Is Scheduled For Saturday Unclaimed property will be auctioned off by the Lincoln Grant. Savin pleaded no contest to a charge that he embezzled some $16,000 from the funds of a legal guardianship. The charge alleged that Savin converted funds from the guardianship of Mrs. Barbara Jean Maddox, a Wisconsin resident, to his own use while acting as her lawyer in Omaha. The funds, for Mrs. Maddox's two children, came from insurance policies on* their father, who died in a traffic mishap. Savin filed an answer to the NSBA complaint with the Supreme Court, waiving his right to a hearing before that body and admitting that he violated his oath as an attorney. He also conceded that he should be subjected to whatever disciplinary action the high court "deems appropriate and suitable." on
