THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., TUESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1939. CANTOR SUED FOR DAMAGES Comedian And Others Are Named In Suit As Re, suit Of Disturbance. LOS ANGELES, Aug. 1 (#»).—A $751,000 damage suit against Eddie Cantor, screen and radio comedian, was filed Monday as the result o£ a distrubance in a Hollywood broadcasting studio March 27. • Plaintiffs were Charles Gollob, apartment house manager, and his wife, Mrs. Elsie Gollob, who stated they went to the studio to hear Cantor broadcast. Their complaint set forth this version of the incident: When the broadcast ended they arose to leave only to be accosted by a young woman, employed by the broadcasting company, who asked them why they were leaving so soon. The Gollobs replied they had seen after-broadcast programs before and were not much interested in political affairs. Then the woman called for a bodyguard, who struck Mrs. Gollob down, referring to her as a Nazi. Gallob attempted to protect his wife but was set upon by Bert Gordon, Cantor's assistant, known professionally as the "Mad Russian." The alleged assaults occurred despite their faithfulness in applauding during the regular broadcast at the instructions of a "cheer leader." Jn applauding they were willing to overlook Hie circumstances that Cantor's offerings consisted of ''ancient and not very funny gags." They demand $500,000 general damages. $250,000 punitive damages end $1,000 to cover medical expenses. Defendants include Gordon, the Reynolds Tobacco Company, sponsors of the program, and the Columbia Broadcasting System. GRANTED DIVORCE Eileene F.
