Of Reed Case
Local Judge Sets Aside
Former Action Of Court
In Granting Retrial
May Not Be First
Says Sentence. Was To Be
Lenient In Return For
Plea Of Guilty
George D. Reed, Detroit fireman
who confessed to the slaying of his
wife, whose body was found May 4 on
the lonely Dixboro Road near here,
and who is now serving a life sen-
tence in solitary confinement at Mar-
quette prison for the crime, will be
given an opportunity to enter an-
other plea before the court as a re-
sult of the decision handed down yes-
terday by Circuit Judge George W.
In his decision which sets aside the
former action of the court and grants
the motion for a new trial, Judge
Sample stated that "the entire matter
was in good faith by all the officers
connected with the investigation and
hearing, and that as happens in such
cases sometimes . . the bounds of
prudence may have been overstepped
in such a manner that it might have
unconsciously led the defendant to
believe that he would be treated
otherwise than he was treated."
In the motion for a retrial, Thomas
Chawke, Detroit attorney for Reed,
produced affidavits which stated that
Reed's guilty plea had been influ-
enced by offers of leniency held out
by officers and that evidence at the
time of the original trial showed
Reed to have been innocent of "pre-1

brief announcement tonight, saying

The reply from President Roose-

Headquarters of the American
delegation had been expecting a fa-
vorable reply all day and the an-
nouncement caught the entire con-
ference by surprise.
The proposal submitted to Presi-
dent Roosevelt had been designed to
allay the fears of the European gold
bloc by giving some assurance
against wild fluctuations in the dol-
lar price. It is believed that gold
bloc delegations now will withdraw
from the parley.
Georges Bonnet,. French foreign
minister, and other spokesmen for
the group, left for their homes over
the week-end after waiting vainly
before their departure for the Ameri-
