I Sr iWJCE Cu VJT HIT BY JJ Phone 121Q i lEIDWHM IBAWUHIAX h- 1. DR. FLE I TRIAL Legal Phraseology Loop hole Permits Secrecy "to Protect" Fellow Doctor. Taking advantage of the phraseology of the Medical Practice Act, Dr. Orrln S.

Wlghtman, chairman, and members of the subcommittee of the State Medical Grievance Committee, which is trying Dr. Paul Fieri on charges of fraud and deceit in the practice of medicine, are holding star chamber sessions to "protect a fellow doctor." The Medical Practice Act states that the hearings "may be public" and not that they "must be public." It gives the subcommittee authority to determine its own rules of procedure. As a result of the star-chamber decision, reporters were excluded when the trial began yesterday. So was at; official representative of the Klnss County Medical Society. A representative of the Citizens Committee Against Fraudulent Claims, however, was allowed to remain, It was reported.

Dr. Wlghtman defended his star-chamber decision to protect a fellow-doctor, a decision in which he said all of the members of his committee concurred, on the grounds that it was the committee's desire not to besmirch the reputation of a doctor unless he was found guilty of the charges made against him. The mere bringing of charges, In Dr. Wightman's opinion, brings Irreparable harm to any physician. Pressure for Acquittal.

Dr. Wlghtman has taken this position despite the fact that the charges already have been brought against Dr. Fieri and have been given wide publicity. The charges were contained in a report made to the legislature last February by the Industrial Survey Commission which Investigated alleged fake workmen1 compensation claims. Not only were the charges made public, but Dr.

Fieri testified many times at the open hearings of th; Industrial Survey Commission. He testified that a record of patients he had attended wts an original record. After a handwriting expert had testified that the record must have been written later than the dates thereon disclosed, Dr. Fieri admitted that the record was not the original, but one he had prepared at a later date. He also testified that he had lost the original record and had instructed a maid to search for It.

The maid was put on the stand and testified Dr. Fieri had made no such request, and she never heard of a lost record. On the basis of this testimony, the Industrial Survey Commission also charged Dr. Fieri with ''willful and deliberate perjury." During the manv months that have elapsed since the filing of the charges and the beginning of the trial yesterday, reports have been persistent that Dr. Fieri has boasted that "he would be all right." There have been equally persistent reports that strong pressure would be brought to bear to obtain his acquittal.

These reports reached The Eagle through a half dozen sources. They reached the Kines County Medical Society. They reached Henry D. Sayer, secretary of the Industrial Survey Commission. N.

J. GIRL'S SUICIDE PUZZLE TO FRIENDS Returned to Father's Homa Only to Kill Herself. (Special to The Eagle.) Lyndhurst, N. Nov. 23 Friends of Miss Katherine Senft, who yesterday committed suicide by shooting herself after being ordered by her father to come from Baltimore to his home at 350 Lake ave, here, are puzzled today about her strange case.

She was a popular student at Kennedy High School, from where she recently was graduated. When she became 18 years old she left for Baltimore. She had been contentedly living with relatives there. The father. H.

L. Scnft, had asked her to live with him and her stepmother. She returned unannounced yesterday morning. Mrs. Senft found her body below a bedroom window.

A pearl-handled revolver, bought in Baltimore, was in her hand. A note In her other hand read: "Dear Dad You ordered me home, and here I am.

Mr. Palmer announced today that he hopes to iron out the differences by giving a luncheon to representatives of all the stations, time and place tentatively fixed as tomorrow night at the Elltmore Hotel, Manhattan.

Palmer. "All day yesterday, a dozen or so telephone calls poured into my office and home from persons announcing their Interest in the radio situation and their desire to help until they learned that my salary was lo be 51,000 less than nothing and the pay of my assistants in proportion."

BROOKLYN. HX. 'H PUIS. tttt rr it rm BROOKLYN BRIDGE'S "SELLER" SENT TO SING SING FOR LIFE Parker, 68 Now, Resigned to Fate Fled Jail Here in Sheriff's Hat and Coat. George C.

Parker, who startled the world by "selling'' the Brooklyn Bridge to a "hick" and as a trustee 20 years ao, walked out of the Raymond Street Jail, fooling the guards by using the coat and hat of Sheriff Flaherty, was today sent to Sing Sing for life bv County Judge Alonzo G. McLaughlin. Parker, who is now 68 years old and gave his last address as 103 Quincy st, was not in his usual role. He was a little despondent and offered no when As-lstant District Attorney William Klelnman prosecuted him on a charge of having cashed a worthless $150 check on Salverson ft Sunns, 1285 Fulton st, on May 18. He offered no resistance to the mandatory sentence under the Baumcs Laws.

The swindler who years aio performed the epic of the confidence world by disposing of Brooklyn Bridge was a meek lamb as he faced Judge McLaughlin. He pleaded guilty to grand larceny in the second degree. Parker has established a record of crime and prison sentences. His manner and means of deception were studied carefully by the underworld. Twenty years ago on New Years Day.

Sheriff Flaherty, who had Just taken office, arrived at Raymond Street Jail to greet the workers and prisoners. He took off his overcoat and hat. Parker, a trusty then, donned them. One of the guards actually salaamed him as he' walked unmolested out of the Jail, bidding all a Happy New Year. Prince of Wales Bags 8-Foot Lion in Africa Dodoma, Tanganyika Territory.

BUSINESS LEADERS PLAN DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN ASS'N Now Civic Body to Be Pat terned After Manhattan's 5th Ave. Organization.
