B. Foshay will have a second chance to win freedom from government charges of mail fraud because the only woman member of the Jury which heard his trial Mrs. Genevieve A. Clark of Minneapolis, said she trusted him. On Jan. 11, the second trial of the promoter with six codefendants will begin, following the dismissal yesterday of the panel which was unable to agree on a verdict after deliberations lasting more than a week in which the woman consistently refused to change her mind. The 11 men who were members of the panel were agreed, voting for conviction of the seven men. But Mrs. Clark voted for acquittal on the 200th ballot as well as the first and her colleagues finally gave up the effort to convert her to their view. The group was given the case Oct 16. Dismissal of the group came when it was reported to Judge Joseph Molyneaux that Mrs. Clark had suf fered a fainting spell during the noon recess induced by the strain of the continuous efforts to win her to the position taken by the men. mm i - F, Flfllf s THOS.
