Charged with Attempt to Extort $100,000 from Rosenwald.

Philadelphia -- Charles R. Weil, 29 year old unemployed bookkeeper, appeared in court with attorney to face charges of attempted extortion of $100,000 from Lessing J. Rosenwald, chairman of the Board of Sears Roebuck and Co., widely known as a philanthropist. Weil is said by police to have confessed to the attempted extortion but said that he did not intend to hurt Mr. Rosenwald but had been "mentally deranged". (1933)
