A. Knill, wife of Reefer Knill, Howard county, who claimed in a petition In equity court that Miss Grinder died intes- tate as to the property in question. Mrs. Knill said that since she was the only surviving heir at law, she entitled to title to the East Church street property. However, according to the opinion, the prop- erty in question a part of the residuary estate of the lata Miss Grinder. court decreed that "the words 'my house on Third street, Frederick, and the words 'my said home on Third contained Jn the paragraph of the will quoted in the opinion in both Instances refer to and mean the home of the testa- trix; located at 111 East Church street and the words 'said residue' in the came paragraph includes said home property."

Issues At Stake. The court was asked to determine the following questions: "As to whether the said Margaret L. Grinder dted intestate as to the dwelling property on East Church street. A sterilization law for Maryland, which would be used only In institu- tional cases will be Introduced this week in the House of-Delegates by the Frederick county delegation. The measure, it is understood will be of- fered at the request of a group of socially-minded representatives of social and civic organizations of the city and county. The bill would provide for the es- tablishment of a State Board of Eu- genics to supervise the law and would grant the right of appeal to state courts. According to its sponsors, It would have the following effects: Prevents parenthood but is not a birth Control method; does not un- sex the patient; is a protection to the Individual and society and carries no stigma; permits patients to re- turn to their homes who would other- wise be confined, thus preventing breaking up of families; avoids chil- dren being born to be brought up mentally diseased and deficient; takes a great burden off the taxpayers, and is a practical and necessary step to prevent racial deterioration. Board's Personnel. The State Board of Eugenics, ac- cording to the bill, would be compos- ed of the Director of Welfare, the Director of the State Department of Health and the president of the Medi- cal and Chlrurgical Faculty of Mary- land, any two of whom might act as the board. The mfmbers would serve without compensation and the re- cords of the board, it is provided, would be part of the work of the State Department of Health. It would be the duty of the board to pass on applications for eugenic sterilization and keep a record of them. Whenever a superintendent or director of any state mental dis- ease hospital, institutions for the care of mentally deficient or the head of any state prison, etc. would be of the opinion that it would be for the best interests of the patient and of society that any inmate should be sterilized, he would submit to the; Eugenics Board recommendation for operation. Under the bill he would first be required to submit a petition stating the- facts of case, which must be served on the inmate, as well as the Inmate's guardian or com- mittee. Following notice, required by the act, the Board of Eugenics would hear the petition and all evidence. It could deny the petition or approve it and order the superintendent, warden, etc. to with the operation. From any Border entered by the Eugenics Board, there would be the right of appeal to the Circuit Court in the county in which the institution is located or the Circuit Court in the county in which the inmate formerly resided. On such an appeal, the ARMED BANDIT MAY BE PUT TO DEATH Jamef Trout, 25, Indianapolis, Flnt To Stand Trial Voder New Kentucky Law. By The Associated Louisville, Ky., Feb. A bandit who refused to compromise on a. life term, holding out for 10 years, faced the electric chair tonight for a robbery here December 10. Junes Trout, 25, Indianapolis, was condemned to death by a jury today the first doomed under a, new statute providing death for armed robbery The trial only lasted 11 hours. Three employes of a flour-milling company Identified Trout as an arm- ed man who participated in a hold- up of the firm's offices. 'As to whether the saM Margaret' Circuit Court could consider the re- L. Grinder erroneously descried her I proceedings before the home property as being on Third i Eugenics Board, together.with such street, when. In fact, it was on East Church street and whether the loca- tion of the property, after referring to it as her home, when she only had one home property in Frederick, can be treated as surplusage." the said Margaret L. Grinder died intestate as to said property, to whom does it belong, the hetrs at law of the said deceased or the residuary devisees in her The court said: "The real Question to be determined by the court 5s whether or not the testatrix died in- testate as to the real estate therein described by her as 'my home an Third street.

The court then cited general rules applying to the construction of wins as cited in a nun decisions and said: "In my opinion, this is a charac- teristic case within the above ru> the description, 'my home oa Third street. Frederick ci'.y. Mary- land.' so far it Is false, that "is Third street' applies to no sub- ject at ail, will be rejected and wiH not TitJaSe the devise since tie part of the description which is true, 'my home.

The sane rale of construc- tion applies to UM words 'my said home on Third street.' occurring fur- ther on in the same paragraph of the will Therefore, the testatrix did not die intestate as to the said home property, by reason of the fact that her will states thai Jt was on Third street instead of its true location on] Church street." Jacob Rohrback was attorney for i Mrs. Knill. B B. Rasenstock, this city, and Calvin and McCourt. Balti- more, were attorneys for Uie resid- uary legatees. other evidence as would be deemed proper. The law would also provide for a further appeal to the Court of Appeals. During such action, pro- ceedings in regard to sterilization would be staved. Superintendents, wardens, etc. would not be liable civil- ly or criminally for such action as they might take. It is understood that the bill is modeled after a similar statute now ir. force in Virginia. Proponents of the measure say that more than half of the states now hare such laws.

The ordinance, he de- clared. adding that his remarks were not was designed to in- crsasa the business of the local coal "dealers, which, had bsen depleted by WarSeld and others hauling from the mines. Attacks Weighing Fee. He bitterly attacked the provision of the ordinance charging 25 cents per ton for weighing, saying the high- est price he could find charged in any othar state was 10 cents per load. It was arbitrary and unraasonable. he said. He also questioned whether tie hours during which coal is weigh- ed in the city, had been set by prcc- lamatica of the mayor, which he claimed was necessary, and whether the hours, from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m- had been officially recorded in the minutes of the board of aldermen. He "claimed that such hours discrim- inated against his client .who could not get to Frederick during an ordi- nary day with a load of coal from the mines until after 5 p. m.. which prevented weighing until the next morning, resulting in loss of a work- ing day. Mr. Rosenstock gaid the ordinance A verdict for the defendant was re- turned by a jury in the case of Myer Kaplon, Fannie Kaplon, Abram Kap- lon and Anna Kaplon, trading as V. Xaplon and Company against Wil- liam B Wenner. tried in the Circuit Court Wednesday afternoon with Judge Arthur D. Willard on the bench. The case was an appeal from the Magistrate Court of Justice Sher- man P. Bowers and was based on an alleged debt "of for rent held by Lhe Kaplon Company against Wennsr. The parties are from Brunswick. The case was originally tried be- fore Justice Bowers who returned a verdict of one month's rent, in favor of Kaplon. The latter claimed that for two month's rent was due him and he appealed from the decision of the lower court to the Circuit Court. Following the testi- mony of twelve witnesses, four for the plaintiff and eight for the de- fendant the jury returned a verdict v.itnin twenty minutes for the de- zendant. The testimony was to the effect that Wenner conducted a store in ihe property of the Kaplon Company for some years On different occa- sions Wenner asked for improvements which it was alleged -were promised by Kaplon, but which did not ma- terialize. Following a discussion Wen- ner said something about vacating the store room and Kaplon replied that that he could do this at once as he had another ttnant in view. Wenner left Decsmber 7 and Kaplon sued to recover the rent for the month of December and also for the month of January claiming that un- der an agreement he should have had one month's notice in advance of Wenner's intention to leave. Wen- ihat no such agreement existed and that he left the promises after being informed by Kaplon that the latter had another tenant. Witnesses for the plaintiff were: Victor Kaplon. Myer Kaplon, Ralph forced, to show their weight slips. The hours for weighing, he said, are noi unreasonable and he felt 23 cents was a reasonable price for' weighing a ton of coal. The ordinance, he said, passed to prevent impositions on the public and the practice of fraud by short weight. The question, he said, "boils down to what is reason- able and waav is unreasonable, what discriminatory and what is non- discriminatory." Both lawyers cited opinions from different authorities. Testimony was given by Offi- cer George Hoffman, who. wi'-h Offi- cer Daniel arrested John Carpsnier, a driver for WarfieM. Thursday evening. He said Carpen- ter said the Isad of coal, which he was placing ai a local cellar, hod baen weighed on scales not desig- nated by the city. City scales, it was said, are at Radock's and Deitrich and GambraHs. Chief Alkn Bartgis and.WarSeld also testified, the latter stating that the trip from the mines to Frederick required such a length of time taer he was not able to reach Frederick until after time, for weigh- ing in ths aftsmoon. ended.

Washington, Feb. presi- dential recommendation for a new PRA today caused Congress to re- legate relief, gold security and other pending questions to secondary posi- tion. Both Republicans and Democrats praised in particular Roosevelt's call for stronger provisions to protect lit- tle business and prevent monopoly.
