DTROIT, April 4.-This is the
'story of a confidence game con-
ceived in Detroit -and executed on!
world wise Broadway to the dis-
comfiture of one Henry Elspas, a,
Elspas, who has a restaurant out
where Broadway crosses 102nd St.,
said four Detroiters did him out off
getting $15,000 more, all becausel
he didn't catch on soon enough.j
Elspas was not suspicious when
two men proposed to buy his res-
taurant. It seemed quite natural
for one of the men to find a pdck-l
etbook in a New York hotel and
there didn't seem to be anything
irregular in the owrner's rewarding
them by an "inside tip" on a De-
troit betting syndicate. The tip won
a theoretical $237,000 and Elspas
came here to collect.
