TUESDAY, AUGUST 26, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 11 OLEO HEIR ENTERS PLEA OMNNOCENT Accused of Forcing Two Pretty Models Into Prostitution. NEW YORK — Minot F. (Mickey) Jelke III, heir to oleomargarine millions, has pleaded innocent to an indictment charging he-vforcod two pretty models into prostitution and accepted money from one. The 22-yoar-old socially registered playboy, If convicted on all counts against him, would face a possible 16 to 134 years in prison and a $31,000 fine. Grand jury action against Jelke and three others was taken Monday in the cafe society vice probe of call girls who reportedly got up to $500 nightly. Officials said the investigation was continuing. One of those accused with Jelke pleaded guilty to a charge that he received prostitution earnings. He 1» 39-year-old movie bit-part actor Richard Wallace, also known as Richard Short. Sentencing was set for Sept. 9. Also Had A Gun Jelke was named on eight counts of procuring, compulsory prostitution and living off prostitution proceeds. He also is charged with illegal possession of a gun. It was specifically charged that he induced 19-year-old Patricia Ward to "live a life of prost^tat- tion" and lived "wholly or in part" «n her earnings from Sept. 1951, to March. 1952. Miss Ward has been held as a material witness in the case. New York newspapers have said she broke the vice case after Jelke jilted her. He also was charged with forcing 23-year-old Pat Thompson to become a prostitute. The indictment did not mention his receiving money from her but said that he I 'cceived $100 from Wallace. The district attorney's office has said Miss Thompson, also held as a material witness, had paid Wallace $300 a week for "love and affection." Press Agent Also Accused Indicted with Jelke on the counts relating to Miss Ward — but not to Miss Thompson — was a 34-year-old jobless press agent, Ray Russell Davioni, who also pleaded innocent. The indictment said Jelke placed Miss Ward in a house of prostitution here about last Feb. 15. The address given for the house was that of red-haired model Erica Steel, 28. She was named as a coconspirator of Jelko's and Davioni's. Miss Sleel originally was arrested ona charge of being the "madam" for the call girls, but LEGAL NOTICES NOTICE OF ELECTION Notice is hereby given- that an election will be held at Lowery School Building in Community Consolidated School District No. 99 from 12 to 7 p. m. on September 13, 1952, on the following proposi tion: Shall Community Consolidated District No. 99 be authorized to sell New Bradford School Building? EARL PIERCE Pres. CHAS. FRENCH, Sec'y. • State of Illinois ) )ss. "Where's Everybody?" the grand jury charged her only with illegal possession of narcotics, he pleaded innocent. Free On .$50,000 Bail Jelke remained free in .$50,000' bail, and Miss Steel in $1,000 bail. Davioni, unable to raise his $45,000 bond, went back to jail. No trial date was set for Jelke and Davioni. Miss Steel faces trial Sept. 17. Two other alleged party girls, were held as material witnesses, were mentioned in the indictments as having conferred with Jelke. But the nature of the conversations was not specified. The two are are BarlDara Harmon, 31, and Nancy Hawkins, 23, of Richmond, Ind. It was alleged in the indictment that Jelke and Miss Hawkins had a telephone conversation last June. It is believed that the real surface of Jupiter cannot be seen from the earth, but that men look at clouds or vapors above the surface. 65 INDICTED IN BLACK MARKET GOLHACKET Charge Gold Bought for Jewelry Svt'opped Abrood for Diamonds.

HOLT, County Clerk of the County of Jefferson and State of Illinois. ALVIN LACY WILLIAMS, Attorney for Administrator, 649-651 John B. Rogers Building, Mount Vernon, Illinois. 9-9 By Assoelatad Prtsi NEW YORK.—A federal grand jury has indicted 65 persons in a 500 million-dollar-a-year gold smuggling racket. Indictments represent "only the first phase" of the investigation and many more defendants will be named, says Assistant U. S. Attorney Louis I. Kaplan. U. S. Attorney Myles J. Lane made the half-billion dollar estimate of the smuggling operations as jthe indictments were reported Monday. j The indictments declared: ' "Unless this nefarious trade is stopped, our financial structure ..will be undermined by the siphon• ing off of large reserves of our jgold supply." Kaplan said the alleged racket is based on the ostensibly legal purchase of gold at $35 an ounce , by persons claiming to be jewelry 'manufactures, and re-sale of the I gold at big profits in foreign black markets. Such blacK marketing, the indictment said, "is one of the largest concerted schemes against the United States." The grand jurors declared that regulations for enforcement of U. S. gold laws are ineffective and that federal authorities are "lax in their enforcement." Cage Gambling Fixer One of those indicted was Salvatore Sollazzo, a former jewelry manufacturer who was sent to prison as a fixer in the recent college basketball scandal. He was indicted on charges of conspiring to violate the trading with the enemy act. If convicted, he could be sentenced up to five years in prison and fined $10,000, Twenty-eight of the 65 persons indicted were named publicly by the government. The others are accused in sealed indictments and their identities will not be made public until they are arrested. Most of those accused are connected with New York City jewelry firms. Smuggled to Europe The gold was smuggled to Belgium and Holland and sold at least twice the U. S. price, Kaplan said, and the profits were used to buy diamonds which were smuggled into the United States. There are about 80,000 species of moths and butterflies. BRITISH ALARMED BY EISENHOWER'S SPEECH Manchester Guardian Comments on Tough Talk, Says It's Not Sure Whether Russia or Allies Holds the Big Stick. Mirror Sees Russia IVIal<ing Propaganda Use of General's "Gift." By Atseelated Pr»s LONDON — Two influential British newspapers expressed alarm today over Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's tough talk to Russia in his New York speech to the American Legion. Tiie independent liberal Manchester Guardian declared: "A good many of us would like our governments to talk to the Kremlin 'with cold finality,' " telling it that the tidal mud of ftg- gressive Communism' had better recede. "A good many of us, also, would like to haunt the Kremlin with nightmares of punishment to be visited on Russia should it violate peace. "Privately, at least, we should like to do and say these things, but in public we are not accustomed to putting them quite so bluntly- "Partly, perhaps that is because we are not so sure who wields the bigger stick." The mass circulation tabloid Mirror took a similar line. Describing the Republican presidential candidate's address as a "shock speech", the Mirror said: "It remains to be seen whether PBRFBC picrnas Quick to fix...salted just right...the crispiest, crunchiest chips you ever ate.

Russia and China are going to make the most of the propaganda gift that the general has given them."And from Europe to India and beyond, people are worry about what the general meant, if he meant anything new at .all." The conservative Daily Graphic, however, applauded the speech. "The preparedness which Eisenhower again stressed as essential is the surest safeguard of peace" said the Graphic. "His forthright assertion that America will not recognize Russian rule in the satellite countries as perrrianent will not effect Soviet policy. "Moscow does not recognize the freedom of any free nation as permanent. It is not influenced by soft words; it watches always the facts 'of power." French Say Speech "Violent" Portions or the French press used the word "violent" in describing Eisenhower's speech. The Paris rightwing paper, Ce Matin made an effort to reassurts readers that Elsenhower wasn't really ready to lead the U. S. and, the rest of the world into another war right away. The speech was partly aimed at winning votes of Americans, who came from Eastern Europe and whosfe families are now suffering under the Russian occupation, said the paper. Also, the paper added, it must be remembered that Eisenhower "who has often given proof of wisdom and moderation" made his speech before the Legion "which is the avant-garde of American natipnalism." The speech does reveal, the paper added, the existence of an "important current of opinion in the United States in favor of a more active policy towards Russia."
