Licensing of Cats Suggested to Curb Problem of Stray; PHILADELPHIA, Mar. , 2 --Th stray cat problem has again assume major proportions here with alter nate suggestions of two promlnen sportsmen that "alley rabbits" b shot and all cats licensed Major Nicholas Biddld, Stat Game Commission chairman, arouse the ire of cat lovers with his suggcs tion that cat-owners be made to pur chase licenses for their pets. Then Biddlc suggested, it would be cosy k destroy the remaining prcdatorj felines responsible for large dcstruc tion of bird life in Pennsylvania. But Judge Grover C. Ladner, gam conservationist, rejected Biddlc tentative plan as too mild. He urge hunters who come across stra felines to "shoot 'em on sight, arguing that cats, unlike dogs, hnv no legul standing. Ladner continued: "Cots arc th most vicious killers we know. The are in a clnss with the weasel, whic is hunted down as vermin Sport! men should be encouraged to kill a stray cits " In offering his, cat-licensing pro posal, Biddlc pointed out he was no "at all committed" to the system But, he remarked, "owner: wh think enough of their cats to pay license fee might also think cnoug of them to sec that they arc kept a home out of danger or mischief' He estimated thnt of 120,000,00 cats in the. United States, about 6 per cent are stra}' And, he de clared, the 1,000 000 felines in Pcnn "ylvama arc responsible nnnuilly f" the slaughter of 3,000,000 birds in th Stnto UNIONTOWN, Mar. 2--Dcnounc- ng officials who 'hold out their ands in greed" tor graft and scoring loyalty of violators to the law of he rackets rather than the law from vhich they seek grace," Judge H S. Jumbauld refused paroles Saturday morning to Ernest "Ness" Fcelo and amcs Paul and directed they be re- urned to the workhouse 'to serve the lalance of their sentences "The long-suffering, long-enduring emolc members of the dcfendinls' amihcs cannot move this court," he eclarcd, while expressing sympathy or the families who sought leniency or the two offenders. The judge pointed out the "brazen icts" of violators in defying the law and then contemptuously referred to he way they "cringed and whined in coking grace from the law they ·lolate " "The court completely fails to get he psychology of the two defendants," Judge Dumbauld snld. "Take Drst the case of James Paul. "He testified at the trial that he ind no part In the bawdy house operated at 42 East Church street. When the Jury convicted him and the iroprlctress--and while the motion 'or a new trial was pending--they moved to a house in Bethelboro nnd continued operations They were convicted again after State Police arrested them ' "I took into consideration) the testimony in the case to support the second charge and made the sen- :enccs concurrent But we cnnno' jive heed to the plea of a person wh has not learned truth is mighty and will prevail. "To say in one breath you have reformed and will live a correct life in the future--nnd in the nett breath you had nothing to do with these iiouscs of prostitution when you know you did--docs not give the court any confidence in the defendant." Taking up the Fcelo petition Judge Dumbauld declared 'Air. Feclo was the partner o John Lannon in what had become one of the notorious 'numbers' pool: of Uniontown and Fayette count. "The State Police caught up with the outfit nnd found Fcelo in the place where operations were con ducted. Fcelo pleaded guilty and undertook to take the rap He took the witness stand one* brazenly ex piatcd Lannon from responsibility saying that he himself, was conduct ing the pool for $25 a week for a deceased Pittsburgh man whos name he did not know. 'He testified Lannon had nothini to do with the pool, yet, before sen tence was imposed, Lannon was tele phoning from New York to friends tc contact this court." Here, he brough out that "while Fcelo was facing sentence, Lannon was touring Eu rope." Feclo was sentenced to the max! mum on one count. "We have It from good authority that, before he was taken to th workhouse, he deposited $1,000 fo his wife's support in his nbsencc "The pool still went on--and th pool still goes on. "Lannon got away as a result o Feelo's false testimony," the cour declared, referring to the trial whe Fcelo testified and a jury acquittc Lannon and Bady Howard. "Bu Lannon, now, Is in the some institu tion serving sentence on the sam charge," he said, going over events that led to Lnnnon's second nrre by State Police and his pica of guilt to the counts. "Feclo suggests that he has reformed. But he still adheres to th law of the racket--that his loyalty t those who violate the law Is greater than his loyalty to the law whos grace he now seeks " The court, in additional remark: showed he "had no faith" in defend ants who "went their way, brazenl defying the law and then, whe caught, cringed and whinned" to es cape the penalties "Fcelo, to get away from his sen tencc, promises to be good. But h doesn't promise to aid in breakin up the vicious acts of) rackets tha set themselves up as being greate than the constituted law offices o the county. "He knows what officials held ou their hands in greed--but he hasn volunteered to the district attorne to turn over the names of those V\k ing graft--nor has he offered lest: mony that would convict those guilt of this sort of conspiracy" Mount Zion Revival Postponed One Week, Begins Sunday Nigh Announcement was made toda that the evangelistic meetings nt th Mount Zion Evangelical Church o the Indian Creek Charge have bee postponed for one week and wi begin Sunday night, March 6, at 7 3 o'clock.
