Slugging, Thefts Unrelated, MDC Says; Forgeries Repaid
Gardiner O. Wheelwright has made good the full amount of forged and stolen checks concerning which his son. Hugh D. Wheelwright '47, was arranged Monday in Boston's Federal District Court, it was disclosed yesterday.
Wheelwright's father, a resident of Danvers, told Secret Service agent Manrice R. Allen that his son "was a good boy before he went into the Army, but he was changed when he got home." The son is no longer living with his family, the father said: he maintains an apartment in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Wheelwright is charged with forging counterfeiting, and passing a $108 check made out to his roommate, Donald P. Rice '48. Police are also investigating checks totaling $150 drawn on Rice's account which Rice claims he did not make out himself.
