1 PAGE TWO SHAMOKIN NEWS-DISPATCH, SHAMOKIN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1945 Laval Screams 'Liar' And Is Again Barred Court Banishes Ex-Vichy Second Time From Treason Trial PARIS, Oct, 6 Laval WAS banished temporarily, from his treason trial today when" screamed "liar" at Judge Pierre Mongibeaux ande pandemonium broke out in French high court of justice. The trial broke up for an hour when Mongibeaux ended a turbutent courtroom fracas by ordering guards to take Laval away. It was his second ejection from the stormy three-day trial. Exactly an hour after the interruption, the trial was resumed, and Laval was permitted to re-enter the courtroom. Laval refused to take any part in the proceedings after he was re-admitted to the courtroom.

The trial was recessed a second time to permit a search for witnesses to take the place of the hitherto voluble Laval. When the trial was resumed, Mongibeaux began questioning Laval. He asked why Laval -stayed in the Vichy government if he did not get along with Marshal Henri Petain, as he had testified yesterday. Laval hedged. He started reading a letter he had written to the ministry of justice protesting against what he called inadequate preliminary interrogation.

He reeled off a long list of charges on which he said he had not been questioned. Andre Mornet broke in with a protest that Laval was delaying the trial. He denounced Laval as a traitor, and demanded to know how he managed to stay in the Petain government at Vichy. When Laval shouted that this was unfair, Mornet demanded that the judge eject Laval if he did not stop his interruptions. Tempers were getting frayedMongibeaux, incident to defense pleas for more time, observed that the defense had all necessary documents to handle the case.

Defense lawyers jumped up shouting "That's a that's untrue. On our defense did not get Mien the documents we have a right to." Laval, Mornet, defense counsel and the judges were pounding on their desks now. Flushed and angry, Mongibeaux cried, "You are evading the issue. Answer my question. Why did you stay in the government? The people who got.

you back into the government, as everyone knows, were the Germans." "That's a lie." Laval He was flushed crimson and waving his fists. "'That's a lie-I repeat, a lie." He turned it into a lie, lie" -and Mongibeaux tried to shout him down. "I have told you repeatedly, I have voice as yours, and I'll make it heard," Mongibeaux cried. "I told you yesterday I would you full latitude to' defend yourself, but I won't stand for your insolent manner." He accused Laval of using delaying tactics, trying to evade issues, and not answering questions. "You ask questions and then answer them yourself," Laval bristled.

"You said it was the Germans. I refused to reply to that question. I will say nothing." By now the whole court was in an uproar. The jurors joined in, one of them bellowing over the din, "Laval hasn't changed -he's still the same Laval, stabbing a finger toward the judge, shouted, "I will not stand for your aggressive attitude." "You will stand for anything I please." Mongibeaux roared. He jumped up, banged his gavel, and cried, "Guards, take out the accused." N.

WYMAN IS FOUND GUILTY OF MISCONDUCT Report Filed on Probe of Former Pearl Harbor Engineer WASHINGTON, Oct. 6 (U.P.)Colonel Theodore Wyman, stood accused today by the Army's Pearl Harbor investigating board of "misconduct" in his former role of district engineer in Hawaii. The board reported no evidence, however, of disloyalty on his part. In releasing a hitherto seeret board report, Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson held that "disciplinary action is not justified upon the present record." Wyman was in charge of defense construction from July, 1940, until relieved after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Three years later he was in charge of the port of Cherbourg after its fall in the Normandy invasion. In this role he Legion of Merit for "outstanding performance." The board report: Condemned the "highly indiscreet manner" in which Wyman associated with Hans Wilhelm Rohl, Los Angeles contractor of German descent, describing their "improper conduct, drunkenness and roitous living" in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Hawail. Reported Rohl was a "man about town" on the West Coast and introduced, or at least influenced Wyman to join "extravagant and disgraceful parties as Rohl's houseguest in Los Angeles hotels, and in heavy drinking over a considerable period." Charged Rohl fathered four illegitimate children "by what he called a common law wife, later discarded" and that Wyman divorced his wife of 30 years to acquire another. The report charged Wyman with three overt acts: 1. Made false statements as to his knowledge of the alien status of Rohl, whose firm and associated companies, were was granted chosen to U.

S. do citi- the zenship in September, 1941. 2. Refused to accept the lowest bids on certain contracts, preferring to give the work "to his friends." 3. Made irregular purchases of machinery, buying unneeded and equipwas worthless obtained at an excessive price.

The board said construction delays were "practically inevitable" because of the peacetime setup under which Wyman operated and "red tape involved in staff procedure, priorities and procurement." The report added that there was no evidence that the delay in construction was "due to enemy agents or to persons connected with such activities who, by intent, influenced the existing lack of progress." Patterson concurred in this finding but rejected the report that Wyman refused to accept the lowest bid on Hawalian defense work. He said the charge that Wyman bought unneeded equipment at excessive cost failed to take into account that the items involved were purchased by subordinates at appraisers' figures. Patterson said there was no or hearsay," to indicate that Wyman benefited financially from equipment purchases. WEATHER CLEAR FOR SERIES FRAY CHICAGO, Oct. 6 (U.P.)

Back of the Headlines By LOUIS F. KEEMLE The big powers seemed during this past week to be heading into a jungle of misunderstanding, Judged from outward appearances. On the contrary, a close study of developments suggests that they were plodding painfully toward higher and clearer ground.

The event which made the worst impression on world opinion was the failure of the ministers' council in London. it should foreign, help cleanse the atmosphere. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes used some plain in his radio report to the nation last night. It was frank and more than a shade challenging, sounding something like Cordell Hull with his dander up.

Admitting that the council ended in a stalemate, Byrnes said "that need not, and should not. deprive us of a second and better chance to get on with the a peace." He went on to declare that the United States favors intelligent compromise but that compromise does not mean surrender and we will not consider "agreement at any price" to buy lasting peace. Moreover, he pointedly invited Russia to agree that the nations which fought this world war should have a chance to make a world peace. The Byrnes speech was not the only sign that the powers are moving closer to hard realities. President Truman charted a tentative course on handling the problem of atomic energy which made common sense.

It was an implied challenge to the other nations to get together and direct the development of this cosmic force toward peace and not destruction. Both in Europe and the Orient, firm steps were taken to silence criticism that Fascism was not being rooted out in Germany and Japan. General Dwight D. Eisenhower clamped down on the use of German Nazis in even minor administrative, George jobs, S. and Patton, disciplined one of Gen- his top military commanders, to emphasize the point.

General Douglas MacArthur acted decisively hard in Japan. While Russia was urging the appointment of a four-power control commission to supervise his activities, MacArthur knocked the Higashi-Kuni government out of office with a series of orders which rocked the Japanese ruling classes back on their heels. Efforts by the United States to bring about unity within China also appeared to be bearing fruit.

Sams, Blairsville, accused of taking $12,458 of state treasury funds, was held in Dauphin County jail today on a burglary charge after failing to post $15,000 bail. At a hearing before Alderman William L. Windson, yesterday, Sams admitted taking the money from a metal box in the treasury offices. He declined, however, to plead guilty to the burglary charge, contending that he had no intention of taking the money when he entered the office. He was held for trial at the January term of Dauphin County court.

A former department emplo. the 43-year-old Sams said he went into the office "to see friends." "While I was sitting there, I saw the box, the lid, saw the money it," he said. "All I inapened can do is throw myself on the mercy of the court. I hope it can be arranged so my wife and two children won't suffer too much. I love them." State Police investigators said they found a "dummy" package, made of rocks but wrapped like currency treasury department paper, in Sams' automobile.

They said they also found a pair of overalls, a railroader's cap, gloves, chewing tobacco and a false mustache in the car. They expressed the belief that Sams intended to use these items when he went to get the money from a cinder dump in nearby Susquehanna Township, where he had buried it in a one-gallon mayonnaise jar. Sams was taken into custody by State Police Wednesday night four hours after the theft was discovered. He admitted taking the money, police said, and led them to the dump where it was buried. Before he came to the Harrisburg office in September, 1942, Sams was a relief case investigator in the department's Pittsburgh branch.

He resigned from state service August 22 because he said he wanted to establish a business. shek and the Communists drew closer to political agreement.
