PROF. THOMAS FREED BY
A. Bruce Bielaski Still on Trail of Sociologist and Soldier’s Wife.
Chicago, April 19. — The charge of disorderly conduct against Prof. William Isaac Thomas and Mrs. R. M. Granger was dismissed by Judge Graham in the morals court today. Attorney Clarence Darrow, of the defense, was upheld in his contention that although the elderly sociologist and the pretty young wife of an army officer were found in a room together at a hotel, this did not constitute disorderly conduct.
A. Bruce Bielaski, chief of the bureau of investigation of the Department of Justice at Washington, has agents at work gathering evidence concerning the relations of the pair which may show possible violation of the Mann act.
