MARCH 7 · 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVE 4 YOUTHS FREED OF PERJURY IN CALMAR INQUEST CASE COUNTS DROPPED BY EICHENDORF Testimony Given Coroner's Jury Not Material Is Court Ruling. DECORAH, March 7.--The case ol the State of Iowa against Ed Reicks, Charlie Rothmeyer, Raymond Rothmeyer and Raymond French, all of Featina, was permanently dismissed yesterday by the court. The four youths were held for perjury in connection with the testimony given before a coroner's jury at the inquest held last February for Gilbert Dowd, 14, Calmar, who was struck by a car or truck and died soon after from his injuries. The court ruled that testimony given before a coroner's jury was not material, and that therefore the boys were not guilty of perjury. The presiding judge is Judge Eichendorf of McGregor. The case of Ronan versus the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railway, in which Ronan claimed damages for injuries to some horses he shipped over this railroad last year, was settled. The defendent agreed to pay Ronan $75, and also the cost of case, if Ronan would dismiss the suit.
