UNIONTOWN, Fob. 10.--Total of $196.07, taken from three "numbers" racket defendants, was ordered confiscated and turned over to the county treasurer in an opinion and order landed down by Judge H. S. Dum- oauld. At a recent hearing, the aotion had been protested by the racket lads-all members of George Betters' coloied pool of Connellsville--including Curtis Adams, who made an unsuccessful fight to have $169.34 returned to him: Charles Langley, $23.63; Delbert Russell, $3.10. In the court's opinion, it was set forth: "The testimony of the Commonwealth shows that when Adams was arrested he was, in company with Charles Langley, Delbert and Jame: Russell and Raymond Keith, standing in front of a bench or table in building on the property of the defendant, George Betters, on Water street, ConnellsviHe. "On this table there \vas money, consisting largely of change in denominations less than one dollar; some dollar bills and other larger bills. "On the person of Adams, the officers found $75 in five dollar bills. "This sum of $75 is claimed by Adams as his own private fund, as is also the case with two other jtems, one of $58 and the other $30. "He advances the claim that he borrowed the $75fiomL. P. Prescott that the $58 was money he had oi his own and that the $30 was paic to him on "his way to Connellsville as a hit in the_numbers game on the day before. - ~ . "We have "ho hesitation, in saying that - we give no- credence to - the testimony of Adams himself, nor to that of Proscott, who was called to corroboate his story of a loan. "Adams claims he borrowed the money from Prescott. Prescoit asserts, from the witness stand, that he made the loan m the early hal. of May^ 1938. He alleges he loaned this money to Adams, who was only a casual friend, without getting an; receipt, note or other evidence having made the loan. There has been no repayment of the loan oi any part. As noted, he told the motor policeman that the only money he loaned to Adams, during the time in question, was a matter of a dollar or two for car'are on certain occasions. "Adams completely fails to remember where he got the $58 he says he had on his person. He admits he had no gainful occupation during the year 1933. He- admits he was, at tha time, engaged in the numbers business and made trips practically every day to Connellsville, carrying with him the, slips picked tip by him anc the money for such slips. "He admits he testified falsely a IP VOU UK1 USE OUR DOUBLE-QUICK PERSONAL LOAN SERVICE! * · Lightning-lib* ipeod baa mad* in* door ica hock«7 a popular (part.
