Andrews recommended the parole because of Peterson's extreme age and physical disability. David E. Blair, former judge of the Missouri Supreme Court, who as circuit judge sentenced Peterson, also withdrew Ills opposition to a parole for the aged prisoner.

SOME GIVE MORE THAN A YEAR AGO LePage, Director of Campaign, Appeals To Hearts of Citizens To Keep the Wolf Away This Winter. "One day's pay will keep the wolf away," is a slogSu which is sweeping through the inchistries, stores and offices of Jefferson City during this year's Community Chest campaign. A few of the local utilities, and offices received contributions from employees last year on a one day's pay basis but more are doing it this year. This plan was given great momentum this year by employees of the various state departments, under the leadership of Wm. T. Findly, leader of that division of the drive. Henry LePage, campaign leader, stated at campaign headquarters this noon that the discouraging ire- port of the total amount' raised during the first two days of the drive, as reported at last night's meeting, has created a condition that challenges the people of Jefferson city to a greater degree taking in this city for many years.

Asel, Republican. Mrs. Mary Toebben was awarded $1,000 damages in Circuit Court yesterday for injuries sustained when she fell on a sidewalk on Moreau Drive Attorneys for the plaintiff were said to have proposed a compromise which first involved $300 and later $500. tJK^^ an £ five aldermen lelt that Mrs. Toebben might have a just claim but that it .would be unwise to establish a precedent by immediately accepting a compromise. Thev felt that all the facts in the case should be presented to a jury of disinterested men. The city lost the first round. The second will probably be fought out in the appellate court. Most of those who discussed the case today said it was manifestly unfair to criticize the mayor for something in which he had a very small part and which was largely the business of the legal department. "I do not believe Mayor Asel is deserving of any more criticism, if any at all is justified, than myself and five members of the council," City Attorney Rose said today in discussing die case. He said he laid the facts before the council and that body with the mayor decided to contest the case. Attention also was called to the fact that if the city does not file complaints against property owners who fail to repair sidewalks the city will have more such suits. Dozens of sidewalks are still in il! repair.
