FOUR THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1939. NEW LAW TO AFFECT MANY Local Licensees May Be Refused Renewals Because Of 1939 Act A steeable percentage of the alcoholic beverage licensees in this county will be affected by the new State law restricting issuance of licenses, and accordingly will face possible refusal on the part of the local License Board to renew their licenses nekt May. Estimates-.of those to be affected by the 1939 act were placed today as high as thirty per cent. Copies of the new law were received here- sometime ago and an interpretation later was asked of the Attorney General. The new law is said to provide that convicted felons who already have a liquor license may continue to hold it, if the conviction did not occur within five years before the date of renewal, but bans the issuance of a new liquor license to any person who has been convicted of violating gambling or other liquor laws. This interpretation of the law was "prepared by the office of Attorney-General William C. Walsh at the request of Charles T. Levin- ness, head of the Baltimore City Board of Liquor License Commissioners. A cbpy of the interpretation was sent to the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County which had raised a similar question. enacted by the 1939 Legislature provides a flat ban on issuing licenses to any person who has ever been convicted of a felony or of-.gambling or liquor violations. But it also provides that licenses already held by such convicted persons may be renewed if the conviction did not occur within five years -before the date on which they apply for renewal. The law also provides that county license boards must revoke liquor licenses for certain types of violations. These include violations of the liquor act and failure to comply with board regulations; false statements in applying for licenses: possession of. liquor on which the tax has not been paid, and two or more convictions of clerks employed in any liquor store^pr tavern with a liquor license.. Leanness" request concerned a man -convicted and fined §25 in 1935 tor possession of a five-cent slot machine. The decision held that if five years had elapsed between the time he was convicted and the time he made application for a new license; the renewal should be granted.

Faced by his wife's mother and father, however, he broke down, and within half an hour after they had left him, he signed a confession, police announced, that he "did away with" his wife. Metropolitan Police Sergt. John J. Dunn said Paarand related he struck his 28-year-old wife after a quarrel about attentions he claimed she received from other men. Paarand's insistence that his wife became lost, after he rowed her back to shore upon her becoming ill, was doubted by police from the beginning, particularly in view of the bizarre circumstances which accompanied the story. Neighbors had called the police to his apartment, which was filled with gas, although at the same time the windows were open and an electric fan was in operation. A door was riddled with bullet holes, and it was related that neighbors YEP, HE CAN COO K—Those cookies are a few reasons why Roy Austin, 15, of Wasco, HI., won from girls In Elgin contest had heard shots after Paarand returned home.
