BANK NIGHT AT CECIL ON FRIDAY Supreme Court Rules Thi Not in Violation of Lottery Laws. Manager Tom Arthur, receiving word Tuesday that the Iowa su preme court has held theater ban] nights as not being in violation o the lottery statutes-, announced the resumption of the activity with bank night at the Cecil theater Friday. The supreme court ruling was that the theater bank night as operated by G. P. Hundling, Newton theater man, was not a lottery. The justices granted Hundling, convicted in Jasper county district court of advertising a lottery, a new trial, but stated in their opinion that District Judge Frank Bech- .y should have sustained his motion for a directed verdict. "The facts shown were not suf- icient to enable the jury to find .hat the scheme was a lottery," the opinion said. S Elements Necessary. The court held that three elements are necessary for a lottery, stating these as a. prize, an element of chance and a consideration given By those eligible to receive the prize. In the bank night plan as operated by Hundling, the justices said, t was only necessary to register in FREE TO OPERATE DES MOINES, Jan. 21. (.Â¥)-- Assistant A t t o r n e y General Walter Maley said today Iowa theater operators are free to operate bank night promotions as the result of the Iowa supreme court's ruling in the case of G. P. Hundling, Newton theater man. "This ruling," he said, "cancels my instructions to county attorneys to halt all bank night operations." a book and "be in such proximity ihat the prize could be claimed with- .n 2V: minutes" after the lucky number was announced. The court pointed out that the element of consideration was lacking because it was not necessary to buy a ticket. Answer State Claim. In answer to the state's claim that the theater "received a consideration" since patronage was "greatly stimulated," the supreme court declared that "all advertising is meant to enhance business" and that a merchant can give candy to children and determine the recipient by lot if he desires to do so. Following Hundling's conviction and 550 fine the state attorney general's office "cracked down" on hank night performances throughout the state. The attorney general ordered county attorneys to stop all bank nights, by which theaters gave a money prize to holders of a "lucky number." Telegrams of Protest. More than 200 Iowa theater operators sent telegrams of protest to the attorney general's office but the action was not rescinded. , In asking a reversal, Hundling's attorneys argued errors on the part of Judge Frank Bechly and "misconduct" by P. J. Siegers, Jasper coua- ty attorney. They claimed Siegers appealed to race prejudice by declaring before the jury: "I can see only one kind of intelligence behind this scheme and that is the Hebrew intelligence."
