HI. 8388-24 How Phono Servcto fnefudrnf Svmfay and Heftdoyo Court of Appeal Upsets Ruling That Elephant Boy Was Not Father of Ex-Dancer's Child That paternity suit against Sabu, onetime Elephant Boy of the films, bounced back into the open yesterday. In a unanimous decision the District Court of Appeal re versed a Superior Court ruling of Oct. 18, 1950, which held that Sabu was not the father of a baby girl born to Mrs. Brenda Marian Julier Ernst, former Brit ish ballet dancer. The appellate court ordered a new trial. Sabu's attorney, Eugene D. Williams, said, however, that he will petition the appellate court for a rehearing on the matter and, if that is denied, will appeal the case to the State Supreme Court. Atty. Williams did not represent Sabu in the original case being retained only to fight the appeal filed by the dancer's attorneys. Court's Findings In its decision, written by As sociate Justice Pro Tem Clarence M. Hanson, the court yesterday said the instructions which Superior Judge Fhilip H. Richards gave to the jury in the original case were "erroneous and prejudicial." The court also expressed the opinion that Sabu's lawyer at the time, Sydney Williams (who has no connection with Atty. Eugene Williams), had used the tactic of putting the dancer on trial instead of defending Sabu against her charges. In their appeal of the Superior Court verdict, the dancer's attorneys, Jacob Chaitkin and David Goldman, charged that during the trial Atty. Sydney Williams had falsely insinuated the dancer was a loose woman and that his questioning of her was designed to prejudice the jury in that belief. After the lengthy and bitter trial, the jury voted, 9 to 3, in favor of Sabu. Dancer's Assertions Known then as Brenda Marian Julier, the dancer asserted that the child, Michaela, was born in Dublin, Ireland, Sept. 12, 1948. Her original complaint said that she and Sabu met in London while they were both in the cast of the British film, "Black Narcissus." They later became engaged, she asserted, and she visited him at his home here from August, 1947, to January, 1948. Sued under his full name of Sabu Dastagir, the Elephant Boy emphatically denied pater nity of tne ennd tnd insisted he never had been intimate with the dancer. - Miss Juliee and the baby were here for the trial but after losing the original suit and a motion for a new trial, returned to London where the former dancer now is a housewife. 500 Baptists Open Two-Day Conference About 500 Baptists from the Los Angeles area heard Dr. W.
