Oct. 27—A 60-year-old Alsatian autonomist leader and an unidentified French soldier last night awaited death on espionage charges while- Allied patrols trudged-through snow and sleet on the Western Front in search of information of German war plans. Conviction of Dr. Karl Roos, veteran sponsor of home rule for Alsace, by a military court at Nancy today overshadowed news from the front where there were comparatively few developments. Dr. Roos was arrested Feb. 7. almost seven months before The war started, when the French charged him and seven others with having furnished German agents with precise details of the movements of French troops during March, 193(5. when Germany reoccupied the Rhineland, and September. 103S, during the Czechoslovak crisis. It was asserted. Dr. Roos' conviction had nothing to do with his autonomy activities which first led tn his arrest, in 1H2S on charges of participating in a separatist, plot against the security of the State. CLOTHING For the Entire Family RAG DEPT. STORE Charity And Honesty Are Virtues Of This Garrett County Resident OAKLAND, Mel., Oct. 27.—Being a Good Samaritan, thrifty and honest, cost Mrs. Sylvia Stewart $1,400. She was a Good Samaritan in •taking: Jesse Loraw. 78, her recluse \incle-by-marriage, into her home for care before he died. She was thrifty in deciding to make over a pair of his trousers for her children. She found pocketbooks containing $1,400 in secret pockets in the pants legs. She was honest in turning the money over to his estate. She will not get a cent as she is not a blood relation, and 54 of his kin have filed claims on the find. Loraw, who had been living a hermit-like life near Crellin, became paralyzed and Mrs. Stewart took him in one day before he died. The trousers were discarded and forgotten and, in weeks that followed, E. Ray Jones qualified as administrator of Loraw's estate. About $400 was found to his credit in a bank here and only a ^ relatives filed claims as heirs. A day or two ago, Mrs. Stewart came across the trousers again and prepared to burn them. Then she decided they might furnish cloth for needed clothes for her children. When she discovei^d the pocketbooks, she took them—unopened —to Jones. Mrs. Veniie R. Smouse, register of wills, noted today that, although i Mrs. Stewart would be disqualified j in distribution of the estate, her children may benefit. Persons who knew Loraw said his wife died several years ago, apparently in poverty and that Loraw himself, a retired mill-worker, had apparently gone hungry on numerous occasions. How long he carried the money with him could not be learned. Wrecked U-Boat Is Reported On Sands LONDON'.
