The department's solicitor has been linked to rule on what action can be taken. This, Furuseth sakl, Is not tho first time a foreign crew has been brought to the United States, but Is tho first time the matter has beei taken up officially. "These men can not oome as seamen, unless they have bean signed," Furuseth said. "They can not be signed until a captain is signed. The captain is In the United States. Therefore, they were sent as passengers In transit through the United States. When they reach New York their status will change. "This Is a palpable evasion of th law.

Cftunty Attorney Jennings arose as Smith sat down., The defense counsel was wiping his eyes no he concluded. This is a case I have inherited," Jennings said soberly. "I have no desire to deprive Halloran of his rights or Wlnnlo Huth Judd of any rights. Counsel Needed "I think tho testimony this witness has given shows her mental condition, her physical condition, her type. She certainly should have counsel present." "Do you desire to have your counsel present?" Superior Judge Nlles, who Is sitting as a committing magistrate, asked Mrtf Judd. She twisted her handkerchief about her left hand and stared apparently uncomprchendlngly at the'judge and then at Smith. "I don't know," she faltered.

"Mr. Halloran old me Sammy was operated upon Saturday night." • Turning to tho purported fight in ho Lerol-Samuelson duplex at 2929 Vorth Second street, Smith Introduced n evidence the small automatic used n the murder trial as tho gun used iy Mrs. Judd In the ulaylngs. The state objected and Judge Nllea iverruled, saying "As I have said bo- ore, this witness fs not bound by the iroceedlngs of tho previous case." Attorney Smith walked up to tho witness stand, calmly tossing the gun >om one hand to the othor. "Now, will you lay aside your hand- •terchief, please. By tho way, Mrs. Judd, why do you continually hundlo •our handkerchief?" Objection to this question was sus- alned. Smith then asked If Sheriff rfoFaddon would stop to tho witness stand, "and the state accused Smith of attempting to intimidate the witness. "Mrs. Judd, do you recognlzo this gun?"

"When you finally got tho gun which hand did you hold it in?" "My loft hand wa§ shot. It had to bo in tho right hand," Mrs. Judd said. ''Will you take it in your right hand?" "I don't want to," Mrs. Judd cried, withdrawing farther. "I don't know why you want mo to do this." "How far away was the gun when the shot was fired that went hfto MtSB biimuelaon's 'head?" "We were yet on the floor grappling for the gun." Smith asked her tho same question again and she replied: 1 "We were clinching. Wo wero rolling on the floor. We were fight- Inp for the gun." At'this point County Attorney Jennings asked Smith If he would not interrogate the witness from counsel table. "I'll try, if it will help any," Smith said. The attorney returned to his chair and again called for a responsive answer to his original question. • Mrs. Judd again told of rolling on the floor. Smith appealed to tho court ftr tt proper answer, saying: "This witness having memorized certain features of her story—all she can do is repeat it in a certain way. I have asked her a. simple question. If she •can't answer, she may say so." Urges Answer Judge Nllex askod that a responsive answer be mode. 'We were In each other's arms—It was that close." Again Smith said that was not t a proper answer. It was close to her head," Mrs. Judd said. "How close?" Smith persisted. "It was just as close us the doorway—" "Three feet away?" "It was not—wo wero l>oth in the doorway," "How close was It then?" "She was trying to get tho gun and I wan try Ing. to keep tho gun.". Snaps at Attorney Chcoldng herself suddenly after this remark, Mrs. Judd snapped at Smith: "I am not on trial horo now." Smith once more asked how close the gun was. "I don't know. I ca.n't say how many Inched," Mrs. Judd answered, "because I'was In a wild, wild flghU— the most wild fight any human being has ever been In." "Was It less than a foot away," Smith asked.
