Tuesday Evening, November 19, 19!57. Expert Card Sharks Now Using Contact Lenses By ALFRED LEECH United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO (UP) — Don't play cards with a red-eyed stranger. He may be. wearing special contact lenses that enable him (o cheat. Dr.-George N. Jessen, chairman of the second National Contact Lens Congress, exposed this latest tactic of the professional card shark. Anyone wearing (he special contact lenses can read the cards from the back when they are marked with an invisible ink, Jessen said.

Without, court freed him on a suspended the lenses you couldn't tell one! manslaughter sentence, card from another. But with them,; Mrs. Dorothy Girard said "I you can read them from the back with ease. The principle is similar to that of infra-red devices used for secret signalling by the armed forces. Actually, Jessen said, the technique is a modern refinement of older methods in which the crooked card dealer wore a suspicious - looking eyeshade or colored glasses. When worn by a brown - eyed person, the contact lenses hardly be detected. But Jessen said all contacts move slightly on the surface of the eyeball. So if you notice a red rim around the dealer's pupil, call for a new deck or cash in your chips. Jessen, head of the Plastic Contact Lens Co., said some red lenses have been made up for legitimate purposes, but "reports ara that a few pairs are being used by some shady characters." Jessen said contact lenses now are worn by about three million Americans, compared with about 200,000, users 10 years ago. He said 67 per cent of the wearers are women, most of whom switch from spectacles to contacts "for the sake of appearance." In this respect, he said, modern women are no more vair than those of other eras. In Elizabethan England, he said, Belladona was used to dilate the pupils and make them appear soft and romantic. And Spanish beauties used to bathe their eyes in orange juice to make them glisten. Bishop Raines Reappointed INDIANAPOLIS (UP). — Bishop. Richard C. Raines, episcopal head of the Methodist Church in Indiana, was reappointed recently in a bishops council meeting at Gatlinburg, Tenn., as liaison bishop to the Methodist Church in Korea for the next four years. Bishop Hyungki Lew of Seoul wrote the council that Bishop Raines gave "wonderful spiritual leadership" in his first term of appointment and asked that he be reappointed because "he has an unusual understanding of the Korean lems." people and their prob- NOTICE OP PUBLIC SALK Notice Is hereby given that OX- AC will sell a 1957 Chevrolet Motor A57F136681 at Public Auction on November 26, 1957 at 10:30 a.m. at Marshall Chevrolet, Royal Center, Indiana.

She admitted, "I was worried, but I had hopes." She said she had "done plenty of praying and I feel as though my prayers have been answered." Mrs. Girard was reached at the home of her brother, Harold Pcl- ier, at Streator. She said that her son's Japanese wife would be wel-, come when he brings her home At Ottawa, Louis Girard who had acted as the family spokesman in the international affair maintained his silence for fear of ..jeopardizing the soldier's chances in event of an appeal. Girard was found guilty of manslaughter Monday in the death of a woman metal scavenger, on a Japanese shooting range. He was sentenced to three years' and the sentence was suspended. Other citizens of the soldier's home town, who had vigorously protested the U.S. government's decision to turn Girard over to the Japanese courts, reacted calmly to the conviction. "I'm glad it's over," said Mayor Fred Eichelkraut, "and that Bill will be coming home to his mother soo,n." Mrs. Walter Carroll, who led a petition protest against the" Japanese court trial of Girard, said her sentiments hadn't changed. "I feel the same as last June that Girard should have been tried in the United States," Mrs. Carroll said. "1 think an American serviceman should be tried either by a court-martial or in a United States court." Most persons questioned about the conviction on Ottawa streets said they were "glad" the sentence had been suspended. "It looks like Bill will be on his way home soon, possible before Christmas," one man said.

Wimer, regional blood chairman; Kay Royer, executive secretary of the Cass county Red Cross; ami Mrs. W. R. Hickman. TOKYO ('UP)—Many Japanese reacted angrily today to the suspended sentence given U.S. Army S3C William S. Girard who shot and killed a Japanese woman last spring on what a Japanese judge called a "childish whim." A three-man Japanese court today sentenced the Ottawa, 111., soldier to .three years at hard labor i on the manslaughter conviction, but sentence was suspended for four years on good behavior. Girard walked out of court a freeman. Today's sentence will not become final under Japanese law until 14 days have passed. During that time both prosecution and defense attorneys can file an appeal. Indications were both sides have had enough and the conviction will stand. Sentence Opposed "* Opposition to the light sentence was led by the Socialist Party whose demands for • a Japanese trial for the slaying ot Mrs. Naka Sakai, a brass scavenger at the Camp Weir firing range Jan. 30 touched off an international furor. Inejiro Asanuma, Secretary General of the opposition Socialist Party, called the verdict a "complete manifestation of ,the weakness of Japanese courts toward the United States." Kayoko Sakai, the . 22-year-old daughter of the victim, termed the suspended sentence "the same thing as a non-guilty verdict." She said she believed the sentence would not "provide Girard with a chance to atone for his crime." Girard himself was glad to be out of it. "It was kind of tough," he told a press conference at Camp Drew. "But I am glad the judge gave me another chance," In Girard's home town of Ottawa, Mayor Fred Eichelkraut said, "I'm glad it's over and that Bill will be coming home to his mother soon." The Army had no comment, but military observers said Girard probably would have received Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribunt Thre* Political Union Proposed for Two Arab States Egypt and Syria Plan Resolution For New Unity By United Pretit delegation of 40 Egyptian parliament members unanimously supported* a motion Monday night calling for a federal union.
