Following a collision between his motor car and a . parked .car in Parnell Road last Saturday evening, Phillip Sydney Ardern (64), professor of English, was charged in the Police Court before Mr. J. Morling, S.M., to-day with being in a state of intoxication while in charge of a motor car. He pleaded not guilty.

Mr. Trevor Henry, who represented the defendant, said that Ardern had taken a very small quantity of "liquor last Saturday. When he left his home to drive to the city he absent-mindedly left his reading glasses on, and apparently made a mistake in judgment and hit the parked car.

I have no hesitation in dismissing this charge," said Mr. Morling, after hearing this evidence. "He received a severe blow on the nose arid he may have been affected by the shock."
