Roaming Around) the applicants was the politically powerful Hubert Eaton a Forest Lawn official whose lobbyists at the city hall lined up the necessary votes Opponents of that property transfer from Los Angeles to Beverly Hills emphasized in vain the loss to Los Angeles of large investments in utilities and the annual loss of thousands of dollars in taxes that was involved Now six other property owners adjoining the properties that were detached declare that the earlier action has created an “island" of their properties and that they are deprived of proper police and fire protection and other city advantages Their spokesman is Albert Rogell a motion picture producer whose property is at 9954 Sunset Blvd Until recently the boundary line between - Los Angeles and Beverly Hills at that point was the middle of Sunset Blvd Ibis created a problem for the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills police Neither was sure ’whether it was its duty to make an arrest en the street or to have an injured He

seeking City Council permission to have Beverly Hills annex them as it did the Eaton group When the matter comes before the City Council it will go to the committee headed by Councilman Debs who is given credit for the success of Eaton's plan The others who seek annexation to Beverly Hills are according to Rogell John IL Harris 9940 Sunset Blvd: John Cording-ly 9966 Sunset Blvd: Leo Pop-kin 9970 Sunset Blvd: Ivan Wells 9984 Sunset Blvd and Frederick Perkins 9996 Sunset Blvd Freeway Bond Sale Urged By Committee Sale of $2000000 worth of bonds to speed up freeway construction was advocated yesterday by the Citizens' Traffic and Transportation Committee appointed by Mayor Poulson - Robert L Gordon chairman of the committee said the issue would be backed by state gasoline tax money now being used to finance the freeways on h pay-as-you-go basis “It seems to many who have studied this matter” Gordon said “that even though such a program would cost moderately more from the standpoint of original cost as the result of charges incident to the financing the economic value of getting the freeways sooner by many years than would otherwise be possible would more than offset such additional cost" CR-S-8227 faae Parhiaf SHADES OF MANET Jury Decides Trench Masterpieces' Fakes By BILL BECKER BEVERLY HILLS LPi — Art lovers up to their eyebrows in French impressionists were given some trembling moments by a jury which convicted a prominent auctioneer of falsely advertising five paintings as the work’ of celebrated French artists Roy J Goldenberg was found guilty yesterday of representing as authentic five paintings attributed to Edouard Manet Edgar Degas Raoul Dufy and Rosa Bonheur The jury weighing four days of expert testimony concluded they were fakes The traffic in French art has been booming in this area since World War II with paintings bringing up to $100000 The jury of six men and six women found that Goldenberg made misleading statements in newspaper and catalogue advertising but held that he did not make statements with deliberate intent to defraud ’ SIX CONDEMN Goldenberg had testified that he believed the paintings to be authentic but the jury heard six prosecution experts label them everything from "lousy” to "intentional forgery” One expert Dr John G Re-wald of New York City estimated that the paintings if authentic might bring more than $100000 Municipal Judge Henry H Dreager allowed no testi-money on what Goldenberg expected to get for them While Goldenberg said he had attempted to verify the works before offering them for auction he added on the stand: "I do not publish an authentic catalogue it is a descriptive catalogue I have never heard of an auction house which authenticates its paintings Dr Rewald art writer and consultant to leading US galleries called the Degas and Dufy paintuiga "intentional forgeries” and the two ascribed to Manet "unintentional forgeries” By "intentional" he said he meant obvious fakes by painters trying to imitate certain artiata FORGED LATER "Unintentional" indicates the painter didn't try to copy an artist's style but that somebody forged a signature later word “forgery" in connection with it -Of one-of-the Manets art critic Arthur Millier observed "It's the type of painting -any painter of no talent could turn out — it’s just a lousy painting " Defense counsel Tom O Wil- liams produced a witness Dutch- bora Cornelius L J Damme who drew what he said were the strokes of Manet and Degas Damme and two other defense witnesses defended the paintings as genuine Williams moved for a new trial and a hearing on the motion was set for Aug 10 Goldenberg is free on $230 bond until then’ The misdemeanor conviction carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and $500 fine Complaints in the case were filed by art dealer Frank Peris who contended that an influx of bogus paintings has hurt the legitimate art market in this area LA County Population 5085864 A total of
