TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 13 1936 ASKED TO KEEP PLEAS SEPARATE Attorney for Maley Places Motion Before State High Court. DES MOINES, UB--The state supreme court was asked Friday to keep its consideration of the appeals of Walter Maley, Joe Gagen and Ray Harrison separate from those of T. L. Taggart and nearly 30 other Woodbury county "graft" grand jury defendants. Lou Salinger, attorney for Maley, first assistant attorney general, and Harrison and Gagcn, filed the motion with the court. He recently asked that Harrison and Gagcn be permitted to adopt Maley's argument as their own. The defendants, indicted by the Woodbury grand jury in its investigation of charges of gambling conspiracy, graft and corruption, are asking a review of Judge Earl Peters' refusal to quash the indictments aga.inst them. Salinger asked today that the abstracts and arguments filed by George Gorder, Sioux City attorney for Taggart and some of the other defendants, be transferred to the cases to which they apply. He contended that intervention had not been granted and that the argument in behalf of Maley, Gagen and Harrison should not be required to take into consideration the abstracts filed by others.

If you don't have those files in Fred Ontjes' office by noon tomorrow I'll get them myself." He made no reply to this, Mr. Breese said, and replaced the receiver on the hook.
