BOSCO DENIED BAIL IN CARD
Samuel Bosco, widely known Camden barber, sat in the anteroom of the Camden County Grand Jury room yesterday, expecting to be called as a witness in the slaying of Angelo Magalas, Camden chef.
Instead he was arrested on the charge of murder.
With Frank Luggi, fugitive police character, he was charged with slaying Magalas, wounded fatally as he sat in a Penn street card game, January 10.
Magalas, who lived at 1119 Langham avenue, died Jan. 23 in Cooper Hospital. A coroner's jury found death was superinduced by gunshot wounds inflicted during a scuffle between two bandits and players at the scene of the holdup.
Bosco, who also participated in the card game, was one of the principal witnesses at the inquest. And yesterday he readily answered the summons to appear before the jury.
Indicted by Jury
He was in the ante-room— still waiting to testify— shortly after 4 p. m. when Mark Reeve, clerk of the jury, came out and whispered to City Detective Thomas Murphy.
Murphy walked over to Bosco. Ha placed a hand on his shoulder and said:
"You are under arrest."
"What for?" Bosco asked.
'The grand jury just indicted you on a charge of murder," Murphy replied.
Bosco appeared stunned. He started to speak again. His lips moved but no sound came as ha arose, put on his overcoat and accompanied Murphy to the city jail across the street from the old courthouse. He was booked at police headquarters on the murder charge, photographed, fingerprinted and hell without bail.
John L. Morrissey and Benjamin J. Dzick, counsel for the accused barber, announced last night a rule to show cause for a writ of habeas corpus will be sought this morning from Common Pleas Court Judge Clifford A. Baldwin, in an effort to win Bosco's release.
Evidence Held Lacking
"There was no evidence to warrant Bosco's arrest on a charge of murder," Morrissey said.
"If Judge Baldwin is available I will appear before the court and ask for a writ of habeas corpus. I intend to ask the court to dismiss the charge entirely. There was not sufficient evidence to warrant a charge of murder and certainly no evidence on which the arrest for murder was made."
Both Morrissey and Dzick visited Bosco in the city jail last night. They held a brief conference after which Morrissey reported the barber still was stunned over the turn of events but .otherwise was unworried.
Police said arraignment of Bosco would be delayed due to the Lincoln's Birthday holiday. He probably will be taken before Judge Gene R. Mariano Monday morning, they said.
Barber Held Door
Bosco was one of the players in the game, but when the bandits entered, he ran into a shed and held the door in back of him. He told police he held the door to prevent the bandits from following him. None of the players could have, fled by the door, either, Prosecutor Samuel P. Orlando pointed out.
At the time of the coroner's inquest, officials of the prosecutor's office questioned Bosco at great length concerning his act in holding the shed door closed.
"I didn't want the bandits to follow me. I didn't want to be robbed," Bosco answered his questioners.
Luggi has been sought for ques tioning in connection with the holdup; ever since it occurred.
Luggi has been identified by other participants of the card game, which was held at the home of Samuel

CHECKED AND DOUBLE CHECKED
Feed Bag: Former Judge Joseph Varbalow will soon announce he has purchased the Towers and Broadway Theatres from the Ellis family ... Circuit Court Judge V. Claude Palmer will probably file his decision today in the fraud charges made by the Republican League against the election of Freeholders Ciechanowski and Francesconi ... Since Judge Palmer told the Democratic attorney, Alex Feinberg, that Feinberg must complete his entire case in a half a day "because, frankly, 1 don't see what answer you can make to this testimony," you can draw your own conclusions about what the decision will be ... Incidentally, Judge Palmer will take a plane July 12 for a vacation at Calgary in the Canadian Rockies ... The name of Walter Uliase, Seventh ward Democrat, has been withdrawn from powwows on appointments to the county tax board, .. Senator Al Driscoll was willing to okay Joe Ackroyd, Democrat, as successor on the board to Fred Schorpp, whose term expired a few weeks ago, .. The Republicans are said to have figured that in that way, they could hold Victor King on the board awhile longer, even though his term expired more than a year ago ... Lee Smith, former WPA director; is still a possibility for the tax board job ... The Democrats are holding frequent conferences on who the assistant prosecutor shall be ... Police Judge Gene R, Mariano, a strong contender, has reportedly been dropped with Ben Dzick, Tony Mitchell, Charlie Rudd and the Kraft boys still in the running ... Police court habitues believe that Gene himself announced indirectly that he had been eliminated when he said from the bench, while hearing a case, "Lady, you'll find that even your best friends sometimes stab you in the back. I found that out myself only 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon" ... That was on Thursday ... Mayor George Brunner told the dept that our guess was still I as good his, so that leaves Ben Dzick still with the fence position in the race ... Mariano may be considered for the $5000 State job as sealer of weights and measures ...
Miscellany: Neil F. Deighan, the saloonman who led the opposition to a legislative bill which proposed that liquor manufacturers and wholesalers be prevented from selling goods to any retailer who owed them money and that all purchases be made with cash or quick payment credit plan (the bill will die in committee), is having his troubles with some wholesalers ... Suits have been filed against Deighan and the Old Mill Inn, Inc., by Galsworthy, Inc., for $1713.51 plus interest; Joseph A.

The suits are in the New Jersey Supreme Court and allegedly represent unpaid balances of liquor bills ...

A Barrington man went to county jail for 30 days after Judge Dzick ruled him guilty of passing worthless check for rental of an auto.
The sentence- 30 days and $25 fine- was imposed on Ralph Visco, 35, of 338B Barrington Manor Apartments. Visco, police said, operates a filling station at 100 Grove Street, Haddonfield.
When arraigned today, Visco told Prosecutor Anthony Lario he wanted to make restitution and took a check from his pocket.
Dzick said he thought Visco had "a lot of nerve offering to make good on a bad check with another check" and added:
"I'm getting a little tired of persons passing worthless checks and I don't care whether the checks are made good later ... the crime occurs when the check is first passed".
