Mrs. Eugene Lerew, York Springs, has been fluttering from a sevcrt at- tack of Ivy HKKSH IMSBABJIKD IN LOCAL COURTS William Hersh, Gettysburg attor- ney, missing since April 19, the day before numerous petitions charging him with alleged irregularities in connection with the practice ot his profession over a period of nearly twenty years were presented to court, Wednesday was finally disbarred from practice in the Adams county courts and the supreme and superior courts of Pennsylvania. Judge Donald P. McPherson sign- ed the order disbarring Hersh at the conclusion of a hearing in connection with the fugitive attorney's alleged misappropriation of paid to him by 'John A. Kime, near Table Rock, in settlement of a mortgage held against Kime by the Benders- ville 'lodge of Odd Fellows. At Wednesday morning's hearing, which was continued from Monday when several witnesses were heard, W. C. Yeatts, secretary of the lodge, produced the records of the organi- zation, which showed that while Hersh had paid the interest on the mortgage up to 192S, the principal had not been paid. Since Hersh left Gettysburg nearly twenty instances of alleged irregu- larity on his part in the conduct of the legal business of clients have come to light. The censors selected the Kline mat- ter as the basis of proceedings. The sheriff has seized Hersh's real and personal property. A hearing on a rule issued upon Hersh to show cause why he should not be disbarred, held before Judge D. P. McPherson, Monday afternoon, was postponed until Wednesday morn- ing in order to have records of the Bendersville Odd Fellows' lodge in court. The rule on Hersh was issued by the court. April 27, and no answer was filed, according to the commit- tee of censors of the Adams County Bar association, which instituted1 the proceedings. On the committee were Attorneys C. E. Stable, J. Donald Swope and W. Clarence Shcely. The hearing proceedings were bas- ed en a transaction in which John A Kime. near Goldenville. borrowed from the Bendersville lodge ot Odd Fellows through Attorney Hersh twenty-seven years ago. Kime was 'called as the first witness and tolci about borrowing the money from Herfh. giving a mortgage on his farm property. Ten ytars ago, the whness testi- fied, he and his son, Walter Kime, went to Hersh's office to pay off the mortgage, giving a check for and ie'2 50 in cash, thereby paying the principal and interest. Kime, his .-on and Hersh then went to the of- fice of the register and recorder at the court house where the attorney through the motions'" of satis- fying the mortgage entry, Kime tes- tified. Tolls Of Pnymenl The check given by Kime to Horsh and the hitter's receipt for the mon- ey were introduced evidence. Early this year, the trustees of the lodre made demand against him for the principal, Kime said. Walter Kime, the next witness, cor- roborated the testimony of Ins t'atli- jcr. C. G. Tatighinbaugh, register and recorder, was next called and pro- duced the mortgage book, showing that the Kime mortgage had not bem satisfied. There were 'no notations on the margin or near the entry to show that the mortgage was paid as Hersh had told the elder Kime was done. Members of the iBendersville lodge were next called to the stand. D. C, Asper, Roy Peters, H. W. Knouse, noble grand, aad Edward Carson, past treasurer, and member for 55 years, testified1 that the records show that Hersh made the interest payment on the mortgage regularly to April, 1928, but that no entries show that the principal had been paid. Inasmuch as the court considered most of the testimony hearsay, he di- rected that the hearing be postponed until Wednesday, when the secretary of the lodge was directed to be pres- ent with his books from 1918 to the present time. Henry Slonaker, near Abbottstown, was sentenced to serve from to 3 years in the Eastern Penitentiary, Philadelphia, Monday, after Judge McPherson refused his motion for a new trial. Slonaker was convicted of a larceny count, growing out of the theft of chickens in and around Ab- bottstown. Masters Appointed The court appointed masters in the following divorce actions: Freda S. Ebersole against Elmer K. Ebersole, Attorney William L. Meals; E. Wampler against Sadie Buhl Wampler, Attorney Wil- liam Arch McClean, and Katfierine Large McGtorge against Royal Mo- GeorRe, Attorney S. S. Neely. The case against Stew-art P. Meh- ring, Hanover, charged with violating the state inotor vehicle code, was or- dered dropped tor lack of evidence.
