Asks Half Hour for Argument After Questioning Judge Amid a barrage of sustained objections, John Hugh Lally, 3113 Portland avenue, self-styled faith-healer and physical instructor, proceeded blandly to act as his own attorney when he appeared for a preliminary hearing in police court today on charges of violating the basic science lawsr The objections came from Charles Goldblum, assistant county attorney, and were rapidly sustained by Judge Fred B. Wright. Tall, imposing, just beginning to gray at the temples, Mr. Lally proceeded to question everybody connected with the case, including Judge Wright, Mr. Goldblum, C. R. McNel-lis, who claimed to have received treatments, and F. M. Brist, complaining witness. Mr. cN'ellis testified Lally offered to cure him in eight treatments.

He said he had been convicted and fined $100 in Chicago and arrested and convicted in Winnipeg after Mr. Pript had written to authorities there. He then sent court attaches scurrying for copies of the basic science statutes. Lally finished with himself shortly before noon and demanded a half hour for presenting an argument.
