(25) In an unusual ruling handed down in the federal court for the eastern district of Kenosha, Judge F. Ryan Duffy reversed and set aside an order by Referee in Bank- ruptcy Frank Shannon which had granted a discharge in bankruptcy to Katherine Elizabeth Frazler. In the bankruptcy proceedings, objections to the granting of a dis- charge in bankruptcy for the Ke- nosha woman were filed by the Household Finance Corporation, enosha office, and the St` Cather- ine's hospital on the grounds that the petitioner had made "two ma- terially false financial statements to the Household Finance Corpora- tion." St. Catherine's hospital came into the action as a creditor of the petitioner. Shannon Granted Discharge A hearing on the objections was conducted on February 29, 1944, be- fore Frank J Shannon, referee in bankruptcy for Racine and Keno- sha counties. On March 13, Ref- eree Shannon dismissed the speci- fications of the objections and granted the bankrupt a discharge in bankruptcy. A short time after the ruling by the referee, the Household Finance Corporation and the St. Cather- ine's hospital brought the matter before Federal Judge Duffy for re- view. In his ruling setting aside the discharge, the federal judge ordered the referee to act in ac- cordance with the court's order. The petitioner in the bankruptcy proceedings was represented by Joseph E. Higgins, the Household Finance Corporation was repre- sented by H. J.
