navy was cleared Tuesday of charges that he contributed to the de linquency of 2 minor girls by buying them liquor and providing he hotel rooms where one he girls said she was seduced Referee Albert L Doyle found Cooper innocent in juvenile court Conviction would have made Cooper liable to a possible 6 months imprisonment a fine of orboth The referecalso found 3 other efeTendants inn octal TheyVireire George Bender 24 Sheffield 111 who was accused of seducing one of the Heen age girls Pauline Frederick 19 South Bend and OUe Lowery 19 Negro hotel bar waiter Cooper and the others were named in the charges as a result of a party at a South Bend hotel last July 22sCooper 22 now a naval V12 trainee at Notre Dame university maintained at the hearing last week that he and Bender Miss Frederick and the 2 unnamed minor girls did noth ing in the hotel bedrooms but drink and dance The former film stars last movie before he went into navy was titled Where are Your Children and dealt with ju venile delinquency Cooper had risen to fame in the from his child star days in the role of Skippy In the written decision which he read in court Tuesday morn ing Referee Doyle said that from the facts in the case we cannot be certain beyond a reasonable doubt that the alleged immoral act occurred This case is unusual Doyles decision said for the reason that all of the parties in the transac tion appear to be of high caliber He said it was generally agreed by all witnesses at the hearing that the party which Cooper ar ranged at the hotel was not a drinking party or an orgy of immorality in the accepted in terpretation The decision said there was no evidence of any conduct or con versation of a lewd licentious in decent or immoral character Doyle added that testimony showed that no one at the party was intoxicated and that the de fendant Pauline Frederick after the youths left the room tried to get the 15 year old girl to go home but she refused and went to bed He said testimony showed that most of the drinking by the 15 year old girl who claimed Bender seduced her was done in the hotel bar and that no one with the ex ception of an unknown navy man ever handed her a drink Doyle Lowery waiter in bar could not be held guilty for serving drinks to the minor girls because he was a victim of his own employment If they had been found guilty Cooper and Bender also a V12 student at Notre Dame would have been subject to dishonorable discharge from the navy The hearing on the charges was completed last Saturday Says I Quit Leaves Streetcar in Traffic Los Angeles
