Patrons aro boing waited on by people who look as if they had wandered behind the counters from a beach party at Waikiki, In addition to the regular stock of quality merchandise featured at THE FARMERS MARKET, the shops have laid in a supply of island goods that is enough to bring customers all the way from Honolulu. Well worth the trip. For one thing, Cedric's Florists has arranged with United Air Lines to fly in fresh plumaria leis each morning of the week. Buck and a quarter a lei, Cedric's and Cort's Florists also have domestic leis made from orchids, carnations and maybe bachelor buttons, for all we know.

Reds Start Appeals on Convictions Oral arguments In the appeal of 14 Los Angeles Communists against their conviction on charges of conspiring to violently overthrow the United States government began yesterday before three judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sitting en banc In the Federal Building here. The Communists were convicted In August, 1952, after a trial lasting six months and have been at liberty on $20,000 bonds each pending the appeal of their conviction. A battery of attorneys who defended them In the lengthy trial were on hand to present the oral arguments In support of briefs which have been filed with the Court of Appeals. Fire on Hand Also on hand were five of the convicted defendants William Schneiderman, F r a n k Carlson, Mrs. Rose Chernin Kusnitz, Philip M, (Slim) Connelly and his wife, Mrs. Dorothy Healey Connelly, Connelly attempted to enter the inner area of the courtroom to sit at the counsel table, but was turned back by court attaches and had to sit with his wife and other defendants in the rear of the crowded courtroom. Defense Atty. Ben Margolis was the first to present his arguments and received a setback for all the clients from the court. He was told by Presiding Judge Albert Lee Stephens that the Communists' motion to have the entire court of seven judges hear the oral arguments had been unanimously denied by the judges In San Francisco recently. Three Appointed Instead, the judges appointed Judge Stephens and Judges Richard H. Chambers and James Alger Fee to sit as a panel to hear the arguments. Immediately after this, the defendants received another setback when Judge Stephens said that the panel would hear arguments "only as long as the court feels they are useful." Margolis had told the court he understood the panel had been assigned to hear arguments for a two-day period. Judge Stephens said that the panel would have to return to San Francisco for an "extraordinary meeting" of the Court of Appeals judges on other matters today but will resume sessions here tomorrow. Claims Xothlng Proved Launching Into his ami- ments in support of the lengthy briefs already filed, Margolis contended that nothing was proved against the defendants at the trial except that all of them were members or officials of the Communist Par ty. He was followed by Atty. A. L. WIrin, counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, who represented Al Richmond, Northern Califor nia editor of the Communist newspaper, People's World. vvirm maintained in behalf of his client that Richmond's activities were all in connec tion with the editing of the paper ana that it was a newspaper "which functioned in the best tradition of the press." Other attorneys who araruerl yesterday were Norman Leo- nara ana Harney ureyrus. Also Dresentlns areuments were Al. exander Schulman and Leo Brantan. The government was reore- sented by Asst. U.S. Atty, Nor man iseukom and Special Asst. Atty. Gen. Lawrence Bailey.

"Plaintiffs are not concerned with possible employment in the public service," the judge concluded, "but it would be an anomalous result if public employees were discharged for certain conduct and those not in public service could enjoin or recover damages from nonem-ployers because the latter mutually agreed to refrain from employing persons ; who so acted." .; "i'..

' an ii Actress Jane Withers Divorces Wealthy Texan He Drank and Gambled, She Tells Court; $225,000 Property Settlement Approved Illustrated on Pag 3, Pari I Jane Withers, rormer child actress, now 28, wept on the witness stand yesterday before she won an uncontested divorce from William P. Moss Jr., 33, wealthy Texas oilman and cattleman. Miss Withers, who posed smilingly for photographers be-j fore the brief hearing in Santa ; Monica Superior Court, broke: into tears when her attorney,! S. S. Hahn, asked her the names I of her three children by Moss.j Terms of Settlement j A property settlement ap-l proved by the court provides! $1000 a month support for Miss) Withers and their three chil-i dren, a trust fund of $100,0001 and an insurance fund of $24,-000 for the children's education, plus a . half interest for the plaintiff In certain Texas oil properties. The total settlement approximates $225,000, according to Atty. Hahn. The auburn-haired actress, dabbing at her eyes, admitted on the stand that she is "still very much in love with her husband, but I have lost a great deal of respect for him because of his attitude toward me and the children." Her testimony was that Moss was given to excessive drinking and gambling. Corroborating witness was Miss Withers' mother, Mrs. Ruth Boonshaft. She said her daughter was a good mother and that the son-in-law stayed out all night, causing her daughter great emotional strains. "I tried for more than a year to work things out," Miss With ers told Judge Allen T. Lynch. one lesuueu uiai iifi uus-i band told her that he "didn't! love me any more." As a result! of this emotional strain, the ac-j tress said, she was completely paralyzed for 10 days and un-j der a doctor's care for six! months. Custody of Children The actress, asked by Hahn If she desired custody of the chil- dren, sobbed anew and an-1 swered: I "Oh, yes." j The children are Wendy; Leigh, 6; William Paul III, 4,1 and Walter Randall, 2Vs. In granting the decree, Judge! Lynch awarded custody of the children to Miss Withers. While i there was no stated provision for visitation privileges, the plaintiff said this would be no problem, inasmuch as "Bill and I are good friends, now, and hope to remain so for the sake of the children." Also present In the court room was Atty. Charles L. Nlch-j ols, representing Moss, who; earlier had agreed to dismiss! a cross-complaint charging the actress with desertion. The couple were married In Los Angeles Sept. 20, 1947, and separated finally April 13, 1953. CUSTOM SHIRTS PERSOSAV SERVICE AT YOUR HOME OS OFFICE PHOSE FOB APPOINTMEST MACHIN SHIRT CO. 716 S.
