Vegetables Rabbit Prey The squirrels voluntaruy got out of the policemen's hair Friday but now the cops have more rabbit trouble. The question of what to do about j squirrels eating porch furniture on . aont avenue settled itself for J present when the squirrels; didn't put in their appearance a t ' all Friday. ' Bat residents up on South Jeffer- ' son street complained that rabbits are ruining their gardens. "We just can't have anything nice ' in. the gardens," one said. "It's a ; shame, they are eating all the let- · tuee, cabbage and other plants. I . think someone ought to shoot them." ^To Trap Violators The complaint was similar to one. heard last week from a Water. street resident, who reported to Regional Game 'Warden Benjamin , F. Pfaebus, Sr.. that the rabbits were destroying his beans as fas! they shoved above the ground. The warden promised to trap the rabbits and liberaie them elsewhere ' in the county where they would: be less troublesome. ' The problem of what to do about : the red squirrels on Rosemont · avenue had City officials puzzled Thursday night when a Rosemont avenue resident said they \vere tearing the cotton out of the porch glider and chairs, apparently to line their nests. Chief of Police Frederick Straley . was slated to pass on the matter on Friday but the squirrels must have r~3d Tn^ News an-t'"" cover , somewhere The complaining resident said Friday night: "I don't; ' know what happened to them." but they haven't been out all day. I hope they stay away." Conviction Of Rakes Is Upheld By Court Asheville. N. C.. July 2 Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals today upheld the Richmond District Court's conviction of Hugh Narnoi Rakes of Purcellville. Va.. on charges of aiding and abetting of the Farmers and Merchants Slate Bank cf Fredericksburg, Va. in willful misapplication of funds. The opinion, written by Associate Justice jcl Barrett Prettyman of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, cites that Rakes was indicted and tried on 13 of 20 transactions involving approximately S20.000. The opinion states that Rakes, a wealthy Virginia dairy farmer, was guilty of juggling his accounts with the aid of a bank official and engaged in check kiting for several montl_;, during which time he bought properties valued at about 51,615,000. The Circuit Court opinion says tha: Rakes then secured from an insurance company a Sl.000.000 loan with which he paid his debts. balanced his bank accounts and started out again a'ong the same line of procedure. At this point. the bank examiners entered the picture, the opinion says, discovered the irregularities and Rakes was arrested. Anesthetic Explodes; Woman Patient Killed Utiea. N.
