He talked so well, In fact, that Magistrate Edward M. Staylor re opened a case in which Marrara'a col lateral had been forfeited. Marrara kept right on talking and Magistrate Staylor ended up by lending the man (1 of his own money. Marrara had been charged with failure to grant the right of way after an accident on January 20 at Broadway and Gay street, A Philadelphian. he returned to that city after the crash and was supposed to come back today for the hearing.

Walter S. Kratz, who occupies the second floor apartment with his wife, Jeanette, was aroused by the odor of smoke. He awakened his wife and then assisted her through the smoke-filled rooms down a stairway to the first floor where Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Klikczyski were asleep. Alarm Is Sounded Kratz and his wife cried "Fire!" and pounded on the doors to awaken the Klikczyski's. All four hastily grabbed what few clothes they could find and ran out of the rapidly-burning building in their bare feet The two families then ran to Simms and Marx avenues, a short distance away, where a fire alarm was sounded. The four huddled around the fire-alarm box until clanging fire engines irjused neighbors. Neighbor Lends Aid Patrolman Stanley Ritterpusch and Patrolman Joseph O'Donnell, the crew of a Northeastern district radio car? an swered the alarm and were prepared to take the refugees to a place of shelter when a neighbor took them into her home. They were given stimulants. Firemen found that the fire, appar ently starting from a defective flue in the rear part of the two-story frame dwelling, had eaten its way through the partition on the second floor and spread toward the roof. Heavy streams of water were brought into play quickly and the blaze con trolled before serious damage resulted. After firemen left the scene the two families returned to their apartments.

It read: "Missed 4 A. M. train. Will arrive 10 A. M." When Marrara arrived he brought with him a convincing tale of woe. He had no money to get home. He had borrowed the money to get here. He needed the 25 collateral he had posted. So Magistrate Staylor agreed to reopen the case tomorrow. Floats A Loan But then Marrara went on to point out that he had no money to buy food or get lodging. Could he borrow on the collateral? "You can't do that." said Magistrate Staylor, "But I'll lend you a dollar of my money." And he did.

In pleading poverty the man's law yer, Michael F. Freedman, pointed out that his last offense had been about four years ago when a sixty-day jail sentence and a $1,000 fine was imposed on Blager on a lottery charge.

Bakers from four States are attending Mr. Schmidt is to preside at the meetings tomorrow. OPTIMISM EXPRESSED FOE BAKING INDUSTRY Potomac States Association Hears Deputy Code Administrator At Session Optimism over the prospects of the baking industry in the future under the regulations of the NRA was the key note of several addresses at the open ing session of the annual convention of the Potomac States Bakers' Association which began here today at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. Weld M. Stevens, deputy administrator of the bakers' code; Arthur E. Hungerford, NRA Compliance Director for Maryland, and L. J. Schu-maker, chairman of the board of directors of the American Bakers' Association, all agreed that many of the pro visions of the code which have proved beneficial to the industry will be retained in some legislative form even if the NRA is allowed to lapse at its terminal period, June 15. Thinks Much Accomplished "I believe a great deal has been ac complished in the industry by the code," said Mr. Stevens in discussing the possibility of retention of the code. The rules concerning fresh and stale returns and premiums and prizes have been particularly effective." The as signment selling regulations, he sug gested, when perfected, will also be of immense value to the industry as a whole. Upon a query as to what would be the solution of the problem of "bootleg" bread, made by bakers paying low wages to labor and underselling bakers complying with the NRA, Mr. Stevens said that in the last six weeks or two months the compliance machinery of the bakers' code had been overhauled and strengthened, and that results being shown since that time were highly satisfactory. "This problem exists to an unusual degree in the baking industry," he said, "because of the number of small bakers hiring only a few em ployes. No one had an idea in the beginning what sort of compliance machinery would be necessary.

M, List Includes Mayor Henderson, Huster And Gunter Special Dispatch to The Evening Sunl Cumberland, Jan. 28 David A. Robb, the 'little Hercules" of the Republican party in this section and a former State Senator, is pointed to by developments here as the probable first appointee to the bench in the new administration of Gov. Harry W. Nice. The retirement within a few months of Judge Albert A. Doub because of the age limit will create the first scheduled vacancy in the judiciary in the administration of Governor Nice. It was disclosed today that twenty-five of the fifty members of the bar in Cumberland have signed a petition to the Governor indorsing Mr. Robb for the appointment to succeed Judge Doub. Henderson Suggested Other candidates who have been put forward included Mayor George Hen derson, the Republican candidate for Attorney-General in the last election; State's Attorney William A. Huster and former State Senator William A. Gunther. Aside from the twenty-five attorneys backing Mr. Robb and aside from the candidates themselves, it was said that fifteen of the fifty members of the bar here have indorsed other candidates, and five are as yet uncommitted. Politically, Senator Robb was said to have the backing of half the members of the Republican State Central Committee for Allegany county. Also politically, he supported the present Governor in the primary campaign last summer. Mayor Henderson, it was pointed out, was alligned with the primary candidacy of H. Webster Smith, although he and Mr. Nice campaigned in harmony in advance of the general election. Robb Is A Dry Like another outstanding political figure in this part of the State, Representative David J. Lewis (Dem.), Mr. Robb is small of stature, but noted as a political fighter. Unlike Representative Lewis, he has always been an uncom promising prohibitionist. He led the fight in the General Assembly a decade ago for a State dry bill.
