FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1939. THK DA1L.Y C O U K L K K , CO.NNKL,LSVJL,LK, fa.. NEWS OF THE C O U R T S Amount of time taken up by attorneys and defendants before the courts in an effort to determine whether pleas should be entered in their respective cases recently aroused the ire of Judge H. S. Dumbauld who reprimanded counsel for not having their action prepared. "This is not a clinic to find out whether pleas are to Be entered," the court said. "Judge Dumbauld's statement Irom the bench on this matter was entirely justified and met with the approval of all the court," commented I Judge Hurry A. Cottom yesterday. Judge Cottom declared that pleas shou'd be entered before defendants are arraigned for sentence and, if not, then, at least, the action should be so clear cut that no time will be lost in having the pl»a signed and the defendant ready when the judges take the bench for the session. "It would enable the court proceedings to move along much smoother and with greater efficiency --if ever}- attorney is prepared to go ahead once the case is called," the presiding judge said. Fayette county will endeavor to hit the "numbers'" to the tune of S270.88 at a hearing scheduled for 10:30 o'clock Tuesday, January 24, when the court will be asked to direct that this amount of money be forfeited to the treasurer "as part of the stake or wager in the operation" of rackets. Those from whom the money was taken, and upon whom the rules were issued to show cause why the sums should not be forfeited to the county include: Louis Bland, Allison, the sum of $4.31. Arthur Yowler, Uniontown, $37.62 taken when he was arrested the first time for maintaining and operating a gambling establishment and the sum of $2.37 at the second arrest on " similar charges. George Langlcy, Connellsville, member of the George Betters' colored 'numbers" pool, $23.63; Delbert Russell, member of the same outfit, S3.10; Curtis Adams, another Belters' bookie, $169.34. Carlton Smith, member of the erstwhile Ted Genovesc pool, $3; Theodore Genovcse, $22.92; James Dominick, another member of this pool, $4.60. Climaxing five years of litigation . which, in one instance, led to the superior court, a decree was handed down by Orphans Court Judge Ross " S.

Newill as assignee of Reed Newill; f- $2,819.58 to Domer S. Newill as - assignee of Elmer Newill; $2,559.58 . to Domer S. Newill, attaching " creditor of Lyman D. Newill. Since Domtr S. Newill agreed to "*- accept, in part payment of. the amount due him, the mortgage of -' W. J. and Lulu Ryan, dated November 1, 1936, on which there is a balance due of $C,000, the court directed the executor, Domer S. Newill to transfer the mortgage. The estate included 156 acres at Newill's Grove, Saltlick township, on which were numerous buildings, a dance hall and swimming pool. Balance which remained for distribution in yesterday's decree was $15,674.76. Settling of the estate had been subject to considerable litigation over the last five years.
