JUDGE TRIES OUT CAR, SPEEDER LOSES CASE
December 30, 1922
CHICAGO, Dec. 29.—Hyman Miller, arrested for speeding, put up the familiar claim in court yesterday that his machine could not make forty miles an hour.
"Come on," said Judge Schwab, reaching for his hat and overcoat. "I can drive a car a little, and we will see what your boat can do."
Hyman and his father, a policeman and the judge piled into the car and the judge took the wheel and stepped upon the gas. Half an hour later they came back. The speedometer showed forth-five miles an hour, so Hyman lost his car and the judge also imposed a fine of $50 and cost on him.
