Civil Rights Case Against Cafe Is Won By Gillespie
     Using the HARRY C. SMITH'S OHIO CIVIL RIGHTS LAW as his guide, Atty, Chester K. Gillespie, member of the House of Representative from Cuyahoga County, won a civil rights case he had filed against the Marzetti restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, last week.  After more than a year of sustained wrankling, in and out of court, during which time at least three different judges heard portions of the case in the Franklin county common pleas court, Atty, Gillespie and his attorney finally settled the suit out of court.
     Rep. Gillespie and his attorney Joseph E. Bowman, refused to divulge details of the settlement or the amount involved but it is understood, from reliable sources that the sum was substantial.
     The suit was filed in February, 1943, charging that the complainant's civil rights had been violated when Marzetti's management refused to serve Gillespie and further charged that the denial was brought about upon a basis of color discrimination.
     Failing in the delaying tactics, the Marzetti company finally attacked the constitutionality of the Ohio civil rights law, contending that the statute was in violation of the 14th amendment of the federal constitution in that it invaded one's rights of freedom of contract.
     The court sustained Atty. Bowman when he pointed out that the Ohio civil rights law was not designed to protect property rights, but to protect personal or human rights.  The Cuyahoga county representative, who is now a candidate for the Ohio senate, said that he was satisfied with the settlement made by the restaurant management and that his sole purpose in filing the suit was TO GUARANTEE THAT THE OHIO CIVIL RIGHTS LAW DOES NOT BECOME A MOCKERY.

Executions in Maryland, Ohio, Illinois and Arkansas
CINCINNATI, June 21. - Perry Bowster, who murdered an aged tollgate keeper and his wife on the Circleville pike, a short distance from Chillicothe, Ohio, last October, was hung at Chillicothe at 11 o'clock this morning in the presence of a very large crowd.  Bowster went quietly to the scaffold.  He refused to perit any religious ceremonies, had nothing to say and maintained a defiant attitude to the last.  His neck was broken at the fall of the trap.  He never confessed his crime.
