Kogers will address the jury in their behalf when it comes her turn to speak. It will be the first time in the history of the local courts that a woman has spoken to a jury, and the event will no doubt attract many to the court room at that time. Warrants have been outstanding against the Bozemans for several years but it . was not until two weeks ago that the officers, succeeded in breaking through their defensive system system and landing one of their number behind the bars. The first to be taken was theh- theh- real leader, Tasker Bozeman, Bozeman, who -was -was arrested after a stiff fight just as he was about to disappear disappear into Green Swamp.
