Prosecutor MChrea, eriff
Wilcox Get Prison Sentences

DETROIT, May 14.-(AP)-Once the"
aggressive Prosecutor of Wayne
County, Duncan C. McCrea heard
himself sentenced today to four and
a half to five years in prison for vice
and gambling conspiracy and took'
it as a man stunned.
The former prosecutor, who sank
into a chair at the verdict, was sent-
enced by Circuit Judge Earl C. Pugs-
ley along with 23 alleged co-bonspira-
tors accused of buying and selling
"protection" for the gamblers and
brothel keepers.
Of the 24 defendants McCrea and
former Sheriff Thomas C. Wilcox,x
along with Bertha Malone, alias
Johnson, named as a Hamtramck vice
resort operator, received the heaviest
sentences-all four and a half to five
years imprisonment and a $2,000
fine.
Calling McCrea, thrice - elected1
county prosecutor, and Wilcox, the
Grant Whipple Is Named
Dinner Party Chairman
Grant Whipple, '42E, treasurer of1
the Westminster Student Guild of the
First Presbyterian Church, has been
appointed chairman of the formal{
dinner party to be held at 7:00
p.m. Friday in the social hall of the
church.
Other committee members include:1
John Dean, '43, reservations chair-
man; Avice Rye, '43, decorations
chairman; Peg Jeffers, '44, programj
chairman; and Jack Weigel, '41E,
dinner chairman.

"most serious offenders," Judge Pug-
sley said they "tolerated and encour-
aged" violations of the law in return
for "many thousands of dollars in
their betrayal of the public confi-
dence."
The State charged that McCrea
got more than $100;00 and Wilcox
$37,000 in "protection'money."
Judge Pugsley denounced Miss Ma-_
lone as "a disgrace" and "not to be
tolerated in any decent society."
When McCrea recovered comgpos-
ure, lie announced he would appeal
and claimed "complete innocence.''
He said "the future will justify my
statement." Before court adjourned
he moved for a new trial.
"I am crushed," said Wilcox, "this
thing has crushed me."
Will Seek New Trial
Wilcox also said he would seek a
new trial and, if denied, would ap-'
peal. Several other defendants pre-
pared to ask another trial.
Sentences for other principal de-
fendants included two to five years
and $1,000 fines for Alfred J. Garska,
former president of Grosse Pointe
Park, and Michael Figurski, Ham-
tramck politician.
Carl J. Staebler, chief clerk under
Wilcox, was given three to five years
and Benjamin Landsburg, former
chief of police at Inurter, one to five
years and a $1,000 fine.
At the State's request the court
deferred sentencing of Harry Col-
burn, chief investigator for McCrea.
Colburn, originally a defendant,,
changed his plea to guilty and testi-
fied against his former superior.

In the event of stomach distress,
Dr. Forsythe warned emphatically
against taking a physic without a
physician's advice because of 'the ser-
ious damage that can be done to an
affecied appendix. A trip to the
Health Service is the wisest course.
Mortality from acute appendicitis
is much greater among cases of
postponement than with immediate
operation. Prompt treatment is ex-
ceedingly important.
Last year approximately 16,000
'deaths resulted from appendicitis
cases in the United States. Most of
these fatalities were, unnecessary and
could have been avoided by prompt
medical attention, Dr. Forsythe ex-
plained.
