Herbert Fleishhacker, once a leading San Francisco banker, fought today to keep control of the remains of his fortune. He won a permanent injunction in bankruptcy court prohibiting creditors from selling millions of dollars worth of his securities which they held and protested appoint ment of a receiver for his estate. Attorney Ernest J. Torregano objected to appointment of Sterling Carr, former United1 States attorney here, as receiver. His protest was based on technical grounds, but was intended to give the banker an opportunity to keep control of his remaining wealth either directly or through a committee or special corporation. Bankruptcy Referee Burton J. Wyman allowed Torregano until next Tuesday to present more detailed objections in writing and suggest an alternative. Meanwhile Carr was kept from assuming the duties of receiver. The court made permanent an in junction granted shortly after Fleishhacker filed a petition under the Federal bankruptcy act for an extension of time to meet $3,831,000 in debts, claiming potential assets of $4,928,000. The order restrains 17 corporations and people from whom Fleischhacker borrowed1 money from selling the securities he put up as collateral for the loans. Harry Young of Fleishhacker's counsel estimated worth of the securities at "several million dollars." A lengthy hearing to determine the banker's assets will be continued Feb. 2.
