He became a master in thta branch of knowledge by spending his spare time for a month trying to wrestle his pooch out ol Home— and failed. "It Is much easier for a man to leave Italy that it 1» for a dog," he said.

Medina, like Reeves, has tried to keep his patience. Some times he gets fed up. For example, late in April Eugene Dennis, who is secretary of the Communist Party and is acting as his own attorney, got up to "make a brief observation." Finally Medina said to him: "I suppose you are daring me lo do something to you. You can be Just as disorderly, just as disobedient as you. like but you will not goad me into doing something which will be a source of difficulty later in the trial." After that, Medina called a five- minute recess and when he returned the court was calm again.
