PARAMOUNT MAY REPRODUCE LOGAN DAYS FOR SCREEN
Paramount, giant movitone interest that specializes in world news views, is seriously
considering reproduction of Logan Days scenes and ceremonials in Murphysboro next Saturday
The Paramount participation hinges only on time. If Paramount can express a sound
equipment truck from Cleveland or Cincinnati in time, world production of the Murphysboro
celebration is seemingly assured.
Paramount in New York has been advised the event is of world-wide interest. Whether New
York can authorize in time the movement of a major Paramount outfit to Murphysboro from
the east, is the question.
Had Paramount had a movietone reproduction unit in St. Louis at the time, the feature
would have been assured, according to work to the Logan committee.
If the unit comes, it will remain in the city throughout the two days, "shoot"
demonstration scenes including the unveiling of Logan's monument, and give movie fans
throughout the world a close-up of Gen. LOGAN's home town ceremonials in his honor.
CHIROPRACTOR CONVICTED ON SIX COUNTS
Raises Constitutional Rights Issue and May Appeal
The Martin ROGERS manslaughter case, set for this term was continued today to the next
term. The court felt that the case could not be completed in less than three days, and
rather than interfere with court house programs for Logan Day, Saturday, continued the
Milton BROWNFIELD, Ava, chiropractor charged with violation of the Medical Practices Act,
was convicted on six counts yesterday.
The defense confined itself largely to introduction of character witnesses, and raised the
constitutional question, indicating the case will be appealed to the higher courts.
This move smacks of a thorough test of the case involving all Chiropractors who practice
without a license.
The maximum penalty in this case could be a $1,000 fine and one year in jail, it is
learned. Sentenced was not passed.
State's Attorney Fletcher LEWIS said Mr. BROWNFIELD declined to plead guilty with the
understanding that the State would recommend a fine of $100 as the penalty.
Local physicians were interested in this case, and the case of the Rev. S. SMITH of Pomona
village, charge with breaking the quarantine law.
Rev. SMITH's home was quarantined on the belief that his son had smallpox. A day or so
later Rev. SMITH alleged removed quarantine signs posted on his house, and walked forth in
The case was continued when a motion to quash was offered and the original declaration
Ed TERRILL and Carl BANDY were indicted by a special grand jury in Circuit Court, and
charged with the theft of a shotgun and rifle from a DeSoto garage. The shotgun had been

Ex-Deputy Sheriff John PARRISH investigated the case, finally found the shotgun where it
had been thrown into Beaucoupe Creek, north of Murphysboro, and allegedly obtained a
confession from the two.
Bailey FISHER pleaded guilty to violation of the prohibition law and was sentenced to six
months on the state farm.
