Curry, once the topVboss of Tammany, to Ilic witness stand by the state came unexpectedly. District Attorney Thomas K. Dcwcy indicated that he intended lo dove-tail the testimony of Curry with that of other witnesses who accusod Hincs of "busting" or exiling police who raided numbers operations. The prosecutor also named Dodgo, Dcwey's predecessor a.s district attorney, as an official "influenced" or "bribed" by Hincs or policy racketeers. Curry, who was once one of Hincs' closesl friends, swore that the Tammany district leader came to him in 1933 and sought the nomination of Dodge. He followed this statement with the declaration that Mines also sought the transfer of police. The slate charges Hint Hincs. in return for weekly payments of $500 and more, guaranteed the Dutch SchulU gang security against frequent arrests and convictions. Curry took the stand after Dcwcy succeeded in introducing the testimony of several policemen who, he contends, were transferred or demoted after raids on policy banks. Aski-d For Nomination Dcwey's preliminary questions dealt with Curry's recent political life���his election as head of Tammany in 1929. "Were you at that time very friendly with James J. Hincs? Dowov asked "Yes." The courtroom wa.s hushed. Hinos watched the man whom he helped elect and in whose downfall as loader he is supposed to have been largely instrumental. "In the year 1933 do you recall when the discussion started for tho selection of candidate.', on the county ticket'.'" "I would say about August or September." "Will you tell us what Hincs told you ami what you said to Hincs about Dodge?" "He asked for his nomination." "What did you say?" "Well, 1 said wo would present it at the proper time."

"I the request of district leaders, Curry was asked: "Did Mines make requests for changes of assignments." "Yes, sir; the same as other leaders." "Yes. And when those requests were made, did you at anj> time ask why il was wanted?" Dcwcy asked. "No, sir." Arguments over Ihc adinissibility of the testimony of policemen -who Dcwcy contends were removed n cmplainl of Ihc policy mob delayed the trial about two hours. Patrolman Raymond R. Slillcry, Ihc first, police witness, said ho was a member of the chief inspector's squad which raided a drop station of a "Maloney" policy bank, one of the Sehiill/ combine, in October, 1932.
