Read Courier, News, Classified Ads after he was accused by the rl. He appealed the conviction. Ingi-am was charged- with as- aulting Mrs. Willie Jean Boswell Vebster, an attractive. 17-year-old arm girl in June; 1951;. The. girl, nmairled then, testified that-In- ram "eyed" her;from a,distance f "about 15 feet.'.' .-She also ae- used him of chasing; her across field on her father's farm, bui ild he did Dot : get f within ,M eet of her." Under North Carolina' law no bodily contact is necessary for con- ictlon ot assault. The jury, In hold- ng Ingram guilty, upheld a state contention that by "leering" at the girl, he frightened , her and thus committed assault. Ingram's : ,attorneys: declined to offer testimony In his delense, but at an earlier hearing the defendant denied he had. criminal Intentions. Ingram told officers the girl was a shirt and Jeans and "looked like a boy" when he attempted to inquire of her where he could borrow a trailer. Ingrain's attorneys said before the trial that, they would appeal any conviction to the State Supreme Court. Mrs. Webster,, who married 13r- ti^st Webster the day before Ingram was first convicted and who now is the molher of a Bin-month old baby, told the Jury she looked up the word "leer" In a dictionary. She said It meant »"curious'look." That definition, she testified,' described exactly the manner in which Ingram eyed her as h« drove slowly past her with Ms head out of the window of. his car. Ingram originally was charged with assault with Intent "to commit rape. The charge was reduced to one of assault on a female when he was brought to trial In Caswell Recorder's court. After he was convicted and sentenced to two years on the roads, he appealed to the Superior Court. The first Superior I Court trial, in November of lust year, ended in a" mistrial when two of the four.

But Harris,'re-elected to his seventh term lust week, expects to be busy despite the Republican gains which moved him Into the minority. "There Is ho'question but that all the 'Arkansas members of Congress —all with many years of service— will still be Influential members of Congress but we 'wbn't participate In policy decisions ind we won't have any say on patronage: It also follows that in many problenm we will have to discuss with executive departments we won't have the entree nor: the aame reception w« have had In the past."
