HOLLAND NEWS By Mr». EH Hampton, Jr. Trial of Ex-Dierks Bank Official Begins; Woman Is Acquitted By CARL BEM, ASHDOWN. Ark. MV-The prosecution today began another attempt to get a. conviction in the estimated $185,000 shortage discovered at the now-defunct Bank of Dierks 16 months ago. The state of Arkansas brought Thomas F. Westbrook, former vice president and cashier of the bank, to trial in Little River Circuit Court this morning on a charge of misapplication of bank funds. In the same courtroom late yesterday a Jury of 11 men and one woman freed Mrs. Opal Slmlng- ton. the bank's former assistant cashier, of » ch»rge of forgery. About • year ago, a Federal Grand Jury Indicted both defendant* on numerous counts growing out of the shortage. Some charges were dismissed in federal court on technicalities. The district attorney dropped the others. Thai was where the state stepped into the case. Prosecutor Colter Thomas filed a total of 45 charges against Westbrook and Mr«. Simington. The first charge tried was the one which ended yesterday In Mrs. Simington's acquittal. After hearing two days of testimony the Jury deliberated only 6 mlnutat. Thomas has said he plans to prosecute all the charges. The 47-year-old Mrs. Simtngton wag charged with forging a $3,300 check, payable to "cash", on the account of Mrs. Emma Kesterson, a depositor at the Bank of Dierks, on April 30, 1952. Taking the stand as the final de- fense witness, Mrs. Simington denied that she had written the check or had even seen it before it was introduced by the state Monday. State Revenue Commissioner Vance Scurlock, who investigated the bank sh'ortage as an FBI agent, had told the Jury he showed the check to Mrs. Simington in 1952. He testified that uhe admitted then that she wrote the check "to take cure of other shortages" at the bank.
