NEW TRIAL IS GRANTED BY JUDGE HEERJITWATSON CASE Judge H. L. Heer, in circuit court, today granted a motion for a new trial in the William B. Watson vs E. M. Rocho suit, an action for ejectment, concerning title to land adjacent to Route 74 on a portion of the property as a "borrow" pit from which dirt was taken to be used as a fill In construction work near the Pecatonica river north of the Illinois Central tracks. Judge Heer ruled that the declaration declaration did not support the verdict given by the jury in a previous trial which was to the effect that the "title in the land described was vested in Watson." The land described was a part of Lots 5 and 6, and the court took into consideration the fact that counsel for Watson in striking out a portion of the declaration failed to describe just what portion of the land was affected by the suit.
