The Pen Is Still Mightier
[Inserted is a cartoon image of the following. There are four cartoon people imaged, Ken Towery, Caro Brown, and two dead men laying. Both Ken and Caro are each standing on top of one of the two men lying dead while an arm holds out a sign that reads, “PULITZER PRIZES FOR FEARLESS REPORTING.” Next to the men lying dead are two hats with the words, “LAND SCANDALS” and “BOSS RULE” written.]
DALE—
Political Boss Accused in 3 Evasion Counts
BY: WARREN DARBY
Staff Writer
George B. Parr, “the Duke of Duval,” was indicted on income tax evasion charges here Tuesday by the federal grand jury.
The San Diego political boss was accused in three counts of evading $85,654.37 in taxes by falsifying his income statements for the calendar year 1949, 1950, and 1951.
Indictments Identical
The indictment is identical with one returned earlier in Houston against Parr, and which presumably will be dismissed,
No government spokesman would give a reason for the re-indictment, but it will result in the defendant being tried in the western instead of the southern district of Texas.
Trial under the new indictment would be held at Austin, where the district office of the collector of internal revenue with whom Parr files his returns is located. The elements of proof would be different were he to be tried in another judicial district.
U.S. Dist. Judge James V. Allred of the southern district recently had granted Parr’s motion for a change of venue from Corpus Christi, where the Houston indictment was to have been tried, to Laredo.
