Paris (Jul. 13)
Lucien Klotz, former member of the Clemenceau cabinet, charged with issuing uncovered checks following heavy losses at the race track, was sentenced to two years imprisonment.
It was stated by those who witnessed the proceedings, that the severe verdict was due to his haughty attitude during the trial. Klotz at first contended that he suffered from a dual personality and later proclaimed his innocence, calling himself a victim of his political enemies.
