Langrehr Will Case Delayed
A trial involving the distribution of moneys of the estate of Anna Langrehr has been continued to the April term of Clinton county district court.
Judge Clair Hamilton of Iowa City made a special trip to Clinton today to rule on a motion, filed by the counsel for the plaintiff, Thomas Downes of Chicago. Judge Hamilton has set a tentative trial date of April 12.
Only the defendants from Clinton were present at today’s hearing indicating that a reported settlement had been reached with the Jackson county defendants.
Attorney Douglas Burris of Maquoketa, who represents the Jackson County Hospital as well as himself as a defendant, told The Herald that a discussion of a possible settlement had been held with Wayland Cedarquist, the Chicago counsel for the plaintiffs.
However Burris said, “I have not received a formal confirmation of a settlement from Cederquist at this time.”
The other Jackson county defendants included Attorneys Walter J. McCarthy and J. r. Sokol, Dr. John Jordan was represented by E. L. Schoenthaler, Maquoketa lawyer.
During today’s hearing, the possibility of shortening the trial to a one-say session was discussed. Judge Hamilton explained this could be done by the counsel for the plaintiff and the defendants stipulating the fact in dispute.
The Clinton defendants at today’s hearing included Attorneys E. C. Halbach and Glen Cousins, who represented himself and the City National bank.
Fred Berger of Davenport, co-counsel for the plaintiff, who had petitioned for the continuance, also took part in the hearing.
The trial date was changed from next Monday to April 12, after it was pointed out to the judge that the appearance of Attorney Margaret Kolarik was essential to the plaintiffs to prove the source from which the funds involved were received.
Mrs. Kolarik, who left Clinton Feb. 6 for an Arizona vacation, will not return until the latter part of March. She was attorney for Lester Langrehr as an individual and as the executor of his mother’s (Anna Langrehr) estate.
The civil suit concerns moneys paid out to the attorneys in the settlement of the Langrehr estate which came in for much wrangling among her heirs.

Another northend home has been ransacked by vandals, adding to a growing list of burglaries, break-ins and vandalism which have occurred during the past month
Police were notified Friday afternoon that the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Mathiesen, 3524 Cleveland St., had been broken into and ransacked.
It could not be determined immediately what items may have been stolen. The Mathiesens have been away for about two weeks on a southern vacation.
The Mathiesen home was smeared with broken eggs, Butter and ice cream, were smeared throughout the kitchen and living room. Vandal entered an unlocked garage door, then smashed a window into a washroom, and knocked down a kitchen door to gain entrance. Robert Mathiesen of 1126 9th Ave. S., son of the elder Mathiesen was notified of the break-in by a farmer who sells to the family. Young Mathiesen said the vandalism apparently occurred Wednesday night.
Neighbors reportedly saw a couple of persons in the vicinity Wednesday night, knocking on the door of another home, where the owner also was absent. No entry was made there, however.
Several other homes burglarized in the last several weeks petted thieves as much as $125 in one take. In many cases, the thieves have entered through unlocked doors.
