The obligations are (A) $50,000 in
personal loans from Mike Jacobs
and (B) $110,000 in back taxes to the
government, neither of which need
be paid until Louis is out of the
army and in the money again.
However, right now, they say that
the man presently may have to do
one of two things:
Either start looking for what is
approximately known as “move

at best, since Louis later would

In other words, he was bound to
wind up in the usual income tax

However, one of the best ways
of explaining about the money he

that for seven years between 1935

2 GO TO TRIAL ON
INCITING RIOT IN
TIPTON AND LYONS
ACCUSED OF STARTING
TROUBLE AT CLUB; YOUTH
Detroit,—Two Negroes accused
of being the principal inciters of
Detroit’s race riot of last June 20
went on trial last Tuesday before
Recorder’s Judge John J. Maher.
Charles (Little Willie) Lyons, 22
years old, of 5815 Brush, is accus
ed of having concocted the story
of a Negro woman and her baby
having been thrown off the Belle
Isle bridge by white people.
Leo Tipton, 35, of 976 Wilkins,
is accused of being the man to
whom Lyons carried this story and
who then made the false announce
ment at the Forest Club, 704 E.
Forest, which the prosecution
charges fomented violence.
ONE DEFENDANT FREED
Judge Maher denied the motion
pf defense attorneys to quash the
case, but amended the charge to
rioting, a felony whose conviction
carries a maximum penalty of five
years in prison. He also dismissed
charges of rioting against a third
defendant, Harper Morgan, 17.
A jury of twelve women and one
man will hear the evidence, which
is expected to take at least two
The first of 98 witnesses positive
ly identified Leo Tipton as the
man who made the Forest Club
announcement. Harold Lawsoa cf
the Forest Club, said that be was
on duty from 7 pm. to 2 am. that,
night and stood near the stage door
when the announcement was made.
At the request of Edward Els?
relli, assistant prosecutor, that he
identify the person who made the
announcement, Lawson walked ov
er and touched Tipton.
“This is the man,’’ he said.
Lawson said that he was stand
ing by the stage door when Tipton
jumped to the bandstand and seiz
ed the microphone. Then, Lawson
said Tipton jumped down again in
to the crowd of 600 to 1,000 danc
ers who suddenly were galvanized,
into a milling throng, all stream
ing toward the exits.

The testimony of four other wit
nesses was introduced. Edgar Eck,

the Forest Club and streets in the
vicinity. Three deputy sheriffs,
William Behan. Charles H. P'ish
er, an dLee J. Morton, w'ho were
working for the Forest Club while
off duty, said that they' heard the
announcement but were unable to
identify the man who made it.
“Little Willie (Lyon) is responsi
ble for the darkest day in Detroit’s
long history, 35 people killed and
thousands of dollars worth of pro
perty damaged—just because he
was paying off a grudge,” Elsarel
li told the jury.
Jtuisarem saia that he would at
tempt to prove that Lyons had
had trouble at Eastwood Park on
June 6 when he was refused ad
mission, and again wiith white per
sons on Belle Isle the afternoon of
June 20, and that Lyons had de
liberately made up the story about
the Negro woman and her baby to
“get even’’ with the whites.

You can’t expect a grin-and-i> . r

Perhaps that’s why so many

increasing the flow of gastric
