UNUSUAL CHARGE

TROUBLE OVER A CHILD An unusual charge was brought against a labourer, Robert Gilmour Allen (46), when he appeared before Mr. F. H. Levien, S.M., in the Police Court to-day. Allen was charged that on November 30, 1943, with intent to deprive a parent of the lawful charge of a child under 14, he unlawfully took the child. The evidence disclosed that he was the father of the child and that he had lived with the mother as man and wife. Accused, in a statement, said he considered the child had a better upbringing under his care than under its mother's care. Allen pleaded not guilty and was committeed to the Supreme Court for trial. He was allowed bail in his own recognisance.
