Lenient to Titanic Survivor

Albert V. Cowen of 841 Eighth Avenue received a suspended sentence for petit larceny yesterday in Special Sessions. His counsel, Joseph Edelson, told the Court that Cowen had been a deck steward on the Titanic and in that disaster had helped save many lives. The complainant, Lawrence Fuentes, said Cowen had obtained $49 from him by representing himself as a steward on Chares M. Schwab's yacht. Cowen returned the money at the suggestion of the Court.
