THE DAILY MAU, HACERSTOWN, MD, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER IMS. Sentence Upped In Appeal Case Conviction Here A man, who admitted under cross-examination that his first im- pulse was to run to avoid trouble on a suspended sentence in a pre- vious criminal case, was found! guilty by a Circuit Court jury yes- terday of leaving the scene of an accident. Judge Joseph D. Mish ordered Frank T. Barr, 67-yeaf-old Ran- dolph Avenue retired businessman, to pay a fine of $200 and serve ten days in jail. Barr, through Attorney Lloyd Kuhn, had appealed the decision of Magistrate Paul Ottinger in the hit-and-run accident case. Magis- trate Ottinger had fined Barr $100 and sentenced him to five days in jail. Judge Mish said Barr should have "used good judgment" and ac- cepted the decision of the magis- trate, in view of the facts present- td. In July this year a car driven by Barr ran into a parked car be- longing to Morris Perkowsky, 900 block West Washington Street. The accident happened on West Wash- ington Street near Ross Street. State's Attorney John S.

BALTIMORE 1*1 -- Conflicting testimony in a series of morals cases by three defendants on one hand and a son of Baltimore's mayor on the other will be studied by the grand jury next week to determine whether perjury charges should be filed. State's Attorney Anselm Sodaro said late yesterday transcripts of their testimony will be presented to the jury Monday and Tuesday at special sessions. Judge W. Conwell-Smith of the Baltimore Supreme Bench ordered the special probe a short time earlier during the trial of George H. Baccala, 24. One of 14 young Baltimoreans charged with morals offenses in- volving two girl cousins, 11 and 13, Baccala was convicted of statutory fape. He testified Franklin Roosevelt D'Alesandro, 20-year-old son of Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro, was with him, the two girls, and two other young men on the night lead- ing to the charges. Similar testimony was given by the other two youths, Philip and Michael Sudano. They also were convicted. At his trial a month ago young D'Alesandro denied ever having seen the girls. He was 'found innocent, beconv ing the only one of the first 12 de- fendants to escape conviction on either rape or perverted practice charges in the, series of cases. Two more trials are scheduled for to morrow. Besides Baccala, another convic- tion was r e t u r n e d .yesterday The tittle is the fine, minute stroke, which often distinguishes one letter from another in the Hebrew alphabet.
