George E. "English George" Sampson, erstwhile "valet" to the late Mickey Duffy, slain gang chieftain, will go on trial today before Judge Samuel M. Shay on a charge of carrying concealed deadly weapons.

Sampson was arrested Labor Day on the White Horse Pike, near Berlin, by a state trooper who stopped him for speeding his high-priced motor car.

Upon investigation, several weapons and ammunition for a submachine gun was discovered in a satchel in the rear.

The former Duffy aide denied knowledge of the weapons, declaring the satchel had been given him in Atlantic City for delivery at a Camden garage.

He was brought to Camden and held in $10,000 bail by Prosecutor Clifford A. Baldwin. After obtaining bail here Sampson was taken to Atlantic City by shore authorities and questioned there regarding the Duffy murder. He is also under bail there.
