Reardon, 36, of New Cumberland today escaped a possible prison term on a traffic manslaughter conviction when he was placed on probation for 2 years by Common Pleas Judge J. IL Lamneck. “You have already drawn great punishment in this case,” the judge told Reardon, who was convicted by a jury on June 2 in the death of his twin brother in a traffic accident on April 13, 1963, on Route 212, east of Route 8. Lamneck emphasized that Reardon had sustained great loss in the death of his brother, his own personal crippling injuries, family finances and peace of mind. “It is not the policy of modern law to inflict punishment for punishment’s sake,” Lamneck said in pointing out that imprisonment would be of no benefit to either Reardon or society around him.

Bowers noted that Reardon, who is married and has 4 children, had been unable to work and, according to his doctor, would be unable to do so for 6 to 9 more months because of his crippled condition. Following the accident, Reardon spent many months in a body cast, and in September, 1963, underwent surgery a second time for bone grafting and repair of his badly injured left hip. “This man will alw-ays know and will always remember that his twin brother is dead,” Bowers said. “He bears the scars (of the accident) both in his See REARDON, Page IO Volunteer Trainees Intend To Proceed With CR Efforts OXFORD, Ohio (AP)—-Sever- prates the training courses foal hundred volunteer civil rights gether with the Council of Fed-workers training to go to Mis- crated Organizations sissippi this summer still intend The spokesman said a total of Mrs. Mary North of Port Washington rests efully" beside her overturned house trailer, a vi-vcin of the tornado which struck there Tuesday night.

Jack Phillips, operator of a candy store at 3rd St. and Ray Ave. NW, reported to New Philadelphia police last night that 3 boys, ages 13 to 14, had been trying to take caps off of pop bottles in a machine. A Fair Ave. NW woman told officers last night that someone had entered her apartment and stole coffee. She said they apparently had a key. At 2:20 p.m. yesterday, Kenneth Mathias, owner of Bud and Teotie’s Grill at 601 W. High Ave., said he has lost his billfold containing $12 to $15 and other papers. A sign marked “ICE” was turned into police yesterday after it was found in a front yard on Grant St. NW. At 9 a m. yesterday a Minnich Ave. NW, woman notified police after she found a red and white bicycle at her home Crago's Counsel Cains 'Ground' Lawyers for James Moses Crago, 29, of RD 2, Dover, charged with the second degree murder of Milton E. Swonger on March 28, partially won in their efforts to obtain evidence allegedly held by County Prosecutor’s office against their client. On a motion heard last Thursday, Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lamneck ordered: (1)—the prosecutor to furnish Attys. Clair Hoffman and James Barnhouse a bill of particulars specifying the nature of the offense charged; (2)—the coroner to allow the attorneys to inspect all written statements and testimony taken by the coroner, or in which he participated at the inquest into Swonger’s death. This includes any statement taken by the coroner, or in which he participated, from Crago himself. Lamneck further ordered the coroner to file any written statements or testimony in connection with the inquest; (3)—the defense attorneys Merchants Plan Downtown Event Plans were made for a Pre-July 4 “Sellebration” when Downtown Dover Merchants Assn. met yesterday in Espen-schied’s.

Lamneck, however, denied Barnhouse and Hoffman their request for the prosecutor to produce a copy of a statement or statements allegedly made by Crago pertaining to Swonger’s murder. The judge also overruled the defense lawyers’ demand to inspect and photograph all chattel and personal property taken by police officers in a warranted search. Patrick Quits As Spies' Aide to proceed with their plans despite the disappearance of three of their colleagues in that southern state, a spokesman says. Observers on the campus of the Western College for Women said the second class of volunteers for the Mississippi summer project appeared shaken hut undaunted by the news that Andy Goodman, 20. of New York City, a member of the first class and two fellow civil rights workers have disappeared in central Mississippi. “As far as we know, no one withdrew from the project after hearing the news,” said a spokesman for the National Council of Churches, which op- 388 persons, including stuff members, are taking part in the second phase of the program. “This tragedy has had no effect at all on the project,” the spokesman said. “The curriculum will continue as planned.” He said the students were told repeatedly to consider whether they still wanted to go through with the project. An intensive hunt is on in Mississippi for the three volunteer workers. Their burned out car was found by searchers yesterday, but no trace of the trio has been found.
