FOR FAIR PLAY
To tho Editer:
As the father of Dfloss Akin, who
was written up In your yesterday'
Issuo as n very bad boy based upon
charRco f assault upon Grace Savago
with Intent to commit rape, I wish to
ask tho public to withhold Judgment
until both sides of the case have been
heard lu tho courts. Tho boy is 1C
years of bro. and so as I kuow had
uot dovclopod vicious tendencies. I
am slow to believe that ho Is as bad
as made out by tho statement ot tho
prosecuting witness. Tho boy as
sures mo that, so far as being crim
inal In tho matter Is concerned, be Is
Innocent, and I bellevo him.
As to tho chnrgo that he outraRcd
tho 12 (II) year old sister, it Is
wholly without foundation of fact
and tho charges filed against him
will also provo equally groundless, I
am sure. F. D. AKIN,
