SIOUX FALLS, Oct. 20 (AP) — Mrs. Jennie Hurd, Sioux Falls, was called a “wildcat operator” by the Judge who sentenced her to 30 days in jail and fined her $200 for operating a cross-country taxi service without a permit.

The state charged she operated regularly between Sioux Falls and Los Angeles as a common carrier without a public utilities commission permit.  Mrs. Hurd denied the charge, claiming she made only occasional trips and secured passengers to share expenses.

A group of railroad officials interested in the case attended the hearing here before Municipal Judge Ransom L. Gibbs, who told Mrs. Hurd the evidence showed she had been making a business of hauling passengers.

NEW YORK, Oct. 20, (AP) — Touchdown outbursts by a pair of eastern halfbacks brought them a tie for the lead in the national collegiate football scoring race.

Milt Jannone, ace halfback of the “little Michigan” eleven which Forrest Evashevski has built at Hamilton college, broke loose three times for touchdowns, boosting his point total to 60 for three games.

His total duplicates that of Courtney Driscoll of Marshall, who counted twice last Saturday.
