Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Doubt Highway Scandal Trials Before Christmas INDIANAPOLIS ('UP)Six defendants in Indiana highway scandal trials will have lo jet along without the good will toward men most jurors could be expected to fee! around Christmas time. Postponements and legal maneuvers in scandal v:ases still to be tried have made it virtually certain no more trials will be held until after the Yuietide season. Prosecutor John G. Tincier, with two convictions already to his credit, has indicated this is the way he wants it. He apparently feels the traditional "uletide charity might work to his disadvantage in getting convijtions in the new cases. Tinder's staff appears most eagert o bring to trial three men on charges of bribing former State Highway Chairman Virgil (Red) Smith and splitting the commissions on more than $600,000 worth of highway equipment contract;;. Those charges involve former Indiana Adj. Gen. Elmer (Docl Sherwood, William Sayer, administrative assistant to former Gov. George N. Craig, and "Glo" salesman Arthur J. Mogilner. Tinder's staff plans to press for a trial in January. But defense attorney James Rocap Jr. said it may take several months to prepare his case. Other scandal trials to be de- ilayed past the holidays involve:: | 1. At least 16 bribery charges i against Mogilner and Smith in | connection with equipment contracts. 2. A false notarization charge against Milan , attorney Robert Peak in connection with a deed transfer in the back lot deals along Madison Ave. here. 3. Charges of perjury and filing a false claim against Austin house mover Marvin Preble, who received an $8,850 state check for work that was not done. Still under investigation, without charges being filed, are alleged "windfall" profits and kickbacks on right-of-way land deals in Lake and Wayne Counties. Records have been turned up showing top officials of the Carpenters Union profited from these deals, and sorr.e of the profits have been turned back to Lake County Prosecutor Metro Holovachka. Smith and Peak were convicted last month of conspiracy to em-| bezzle public funds in the Madi-i son Ave. right-of-way deals. But: former right-of-way director Nile Teyerbaugh and his ex-assistant, Ha'rry Doggett, were acquitted. That trial involved only four of the 11 charges in the back lot scandal returned by a Marion County grand jury last May.
