Bentz, 37-year-old Monessen railroader, was convicted in a verdict returned to Judge W. Russell Carr after only one-half hour deliberations. George Oliver Hileman, 66-year- old farmer of Fayette City R. D., was injured so badly he died the day following in Charleroi-Monessen Hospital where his wife was a patient for weeks from, injuries suffered when their car overturned in the crash with the machine owned by Mrs. Bentz but operated by her husband. Tried for the theft of tires valued at $10, Robert Marnell, Dunbar, was found not guilty and costs in the proceedings place on his prosecutor, Louis Falcone, also of Dunbar. Motion for a directed verdict in the case was sustained by Judge Harry A. Cottom. Following a two-day trial, Joseph Garrett, local colored man, was convicted on the first count of the indictment, maintaining a lottery, and acquitted on two other counts as directed by Judge H. S. Dumbauld. At the same time, the defendant moved to "withdraw assault charges he had preferred against his prosecutors, Constables James Josa and Pete Medved, and a nol pros action was instituted to eliminate this case from the court calendar.

Banks, in a case heard last week by Judge Matthews, was convicted of assault and battery and impersonating an officer preferred by Harry Mer.-yman as the outgrowth of a dispute at the Chatterbox Inn.
