WAR (Continued from Page 1) during the divorce proceedings. In ills previous testimony, Knolton had said the address. 1512 West Ash Street, had been given to him by Mr. Hader, and that he actually hart stayed by himself at a house on West Vine Street for only a few days. Revising his testimony, Knolloji admitted he told Mr. Rader that 1512 West Ash was his residence here. He further admitted having lived at that address for about six weeks with hh present wife while his divorce proceedings were in progress. The decision to change his testimony apparently was made by Knolton on advice of counsel after It was learned that the owners of the residence at 1512 West Ash were prepared io identify him from the witncfis stand as having lived in (hdr home. Taking the stand dining the aft crnorm session, Mr, Rader denied KnoHon's assertions that he had aided Knollon In establishing false Information for use In the divorce ruse or that he had arranged for a witness (o corroborate ' Knolton's testimony. He testified that Knolton had brought Mrs. Hollands- •vorth lo his office lo be a witness at :he divorce hearing. Introduces File Mr. Rader's personal file ol hi.' :lealings with Knolton was inlro- iuccd to the court as evidence over .lie objection of defense counsel The file included notes which Mr lacier said he took down when Knoltou first came to his office. Interpreting these notes to the ;ourt, Mr. Rader indicated a nola- Jon that Knolton had given him the .Street address as his residence here, but asked that he (Rader) nol use it unless necessary because h< didn't want the people there lo ino\v he was getting a divorce. In life revised statement, Knolton snid hu covercrt up his residence originally in order to protect, hi. present wife, whom he married aft er obtaining his divorce here. Another Hlythcvllle attorney II Pncse, also Claude Cooper, was called lo th stand by the prosecution. Mr. Cooper testified that he (iret talked U Knolton at Stcele, Mo,, after hav Ing received a telephone call from a woman who identified herself a; Mrs. Knolton, asking him to mec Knollon. He said both he and Mr. Radc met Knolton at Stcele, and that Mr Haclcr protested to Kuolton ove the Irouble caused by what Knot Ion had first told him. Says Knolton Admitted Uc Knolton then admitted havin lied to Mr. Hatler, according to Mr Cooper, who said Knolton turned ti him at that point and said, "1 liei to him (Rader) about everything." On the question* of extradition Mr, Cooper said he told Knolton h otic of the hud two alternatives: either com back and give himself up, or go bad lo Illinois and fight extradition. ' Knolton previously 'had testifiei that Mr. Cooper anri Mr. Rfider hai advised him to fight extradition. The meeting at Sleelc'u'ns ar ranged by Mr. Rader, according t Knolton's testimony. He also sai that he w;is given a description o Mrs. Polly Hollandsworth by the at torneys to be used In case he cam to trial and needed it. In Ills testimony, Mr. Cooper sat he did not recall Mrs. Hollands worth's name being mentioncri H tho meeting and denied he had giv en Knolton her description.
