Caraway then paced the senate floor, spending much of the time walking near Blhgham, who stood with one hand In a pocket and spoke almost In a monotone. "I sat here and listened to one Innuendo after another," Bingham said, "and was amazed that a senator would so forget himself that ha would stand In hla place on this floor and pan Innuendoes of that kind for political purposes, "Kvery effort has been made to twist flimsy evidence to show that I was crooked. It has been the purpose of the oommlttee from the beginning to see that I came out of thla befouled with political slime and corrupt Innuendoes." Bingham then referred to the memorandum written by Joseph E. Wulchet, a clerk of the Connecti cut association, to Eyanson, showing that Wulchet apparently had knowledge of the secret sessions of the senate finance committee. The memorandum related that Wulchet told arms manufacturers of the position of senators on the com mittee on certain tariffs.

The high light of the state's case brought Mlsa Pringle to the stand A quiet-spoken, demure looking girt, she told a forceful story of what went en in the conference room. She held that Pantages first told her he Intended to book her art on his vaudeville circuit. Then, sho said, he told her he loved her. and that lie hated his own wife. "I told him to be a gentleman," Miss Pringle testified, "but Instead he clamped hla hand over my mouth and started to attack me." fihe went Into a vivid descrlp tlon, Its details unprintable, of a horrible experience.
