ONE LIMIT'S JUDGES FORCED DOWN. Miss Laura Ingalls Put Down in Colorado. Plane Alamosa, Col., April 17.—Dust clouds frustrated an attempt of diminutive Laura Ingalls to set a i new transcontinental speed record rfor women on a flight from Los Angeles, Cal., to New York yesterday. Lost in the haze, she was forced to land her black "mystery" monoplane at . this small town in the San Luis valley of southern Colorado at 5 o'clock yesterday, afternoon (6 p. m. Central -Standard time.) Miss Ingalls, in the air almost eleven hours, covered only about Indianapolis, April 17.—Rollo M. Walter. Lagrange banker, won a new trial on a banker's embezzlement charge yesterday when the Indiana Supreme Court reversed his conviction and set up two important legal points which are expected to have a far-reaching effect. Mr. Walter, former state senator, had already served a year in the Indiana state prison o£ a two - to - fourteen - year sentence meted out to him by the Lagrange Circuit Court June S, 1932. The court in reversing the conviction held that in bankers' embezzlement trials the trial judges can not instruct juries that the mere fact that a banking institution accepts deposits within thirty days of failure of the institution establishes the "criminal intent" of the bank officer on trial to em- | bezzle from the depositor. It is for the juries themselves to determine whether or not the "criminal intent" existed, the court held. The second important legal aspect of the decision was that jury commissioners have no right to exclude women from chairs in juries in Indiana. Juries from which women are excluded, solely on grtmnd they are women, are illegal and their decisions are invalid, according to the court's decision. one-fourth of flight on which the 2,447-mile Amelia Earhart holds the women's record of 17 hours, 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
