granted 6 months ago while gross awaited sentencing on gambling charges District Attorney Miles F the dapper gambler had doublecrossed in backing down on his original agreement to talk at the trial asked that the parole be throWnOut I anino longer able to guarantee to produce this witness when he is ed McDonald said i 66 Counts Justice William B Northrop presiding at the hearing set Sept 27 for sentencing Gross on 66 counts ofsgamblingfor which he could d r a w up to 68 years prison He previously pleaded guilty fi and sentencing had been set for Oct 8 On top of the exboss of a ayear bookmaking syndicate was given 5 years for contempt of court during Wed nesdays stormy courtroom wran Gross had defied attempts of the court to get him to answer the trial in which the policemen were accused of tak ing a million a year in bribes Brooklyn Judge Samuel S Leibowitz in bitter fury threw the case out of court late Wednes day He freed the 18 cops after McDonald go on said it was futile to The 18 were accused of sharing in year in bribes paid by Gross when the pudgy bookie riding high as kingpin of a a yeartumbling ring The specific charge was conspiracy to obstruct justice by allegedly protecting the betting syndicate Gross was the states key wit ness When he wouldnt testify there just wasnt any case left an inter nationally famed defense lawyer called the defiant Gross a miser able wretch and gave him 5 years in jail plus a 515000 fine on 60 counts of contempt ofcourt And the judge plainly regarded this as only the beginning He hinted he will go aHout to in fluence a

maximum 68 years in prison I am not presuming to tell the court of special sessions what they should do Leibowitz said grim ly But I think his conduct here ought to be called to the attention of that

his work in Gross gambling ring His future far less bright now he told Judge I dont know Whether we can aalyage anything out of I see very little hope in it But I do oweat to the people of the

Nonriination ByJLYLE C WILSON Washington Drum mond has returned from Paris with word that Gen Dwight D Eisenhower wants the republican presidential nomination and will work to get it Drummond is one of the best reporters in town He is just back from two years as director of European information for the economic cooperation administra tion r All About This week he resumed his post as chief Washington correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor Drummonds first piece for the Monitor was a roundup on Ikes political position Drummond wrote that the general would not be coy Henot only will accept the nomination but plans to make a frank statement qf his availabil ity for the republican nomination well in advance of the nominating convention To Resign Drummond reported that Eisen hower will resign his European military post at that time iurn to the United States He said ihere were 3 major reasons for kes desire and decision to seek the presidency next year 1 To assure that the United States will maintain a vigorous and daring role of world leader ship 2 To prevent the government or the republican party from being dominated by what he regards as isolationism 3 To rescue United Stats foreign policy from harsh Drummond explained he was not speaking tot Eisenhower But he said his report is based on more than mere judgment arid de duction I have reason to believe he this report faith fully and factually reflects the generals political intentions He could change them I doubt if he will Drummond writes from a sounc background of political realism Unlike many stories of Ikes polit ical intentions and of the plans of tils backers Brummonds piece in no way challenged the political truth which some of the generals friends seem to have forgotten No Real Draft That axion is that there never sas been in modern times a bona fide draft of a man to be presi man who himself refused to join allout in the moment to obtain his nomination Anything can happen of course But some political realists of late lave rbeen counting General Ike out of the republican picture This doubt of his chances arose as Ikes sackers have increasingly insisted hat he wouldsit it out in Paris
