The petite brunette broke into sobs after defense attorney Doyne Halbritter corhpleted i final arguments to the jury. Crowds Attracted As the three-day trial — which drew capacity crowds — neared close, Prosecuting Attorney James Dailey characterized the defendant as a woman whose cool actions showed TWO GREAT HITS!

Sports Announcer More recently, too, Roby has had success as a radio and television sports announcer. It is his hope, he said today, to remain in close contact with sports if at all possible, but there-is a chance he will engage in a-line'of work that will make it necessary for him to drop officiating . •••V.'i . :Roby explained that he made his decision to leave the "Y" with considerable "reluctance." "It is a move that I've had in mind for a long period," he added, "and was not an easy decision to make because I've really enjoyed my close association with youth and air the other fine folks interested in sports. I'm greatly appreciative of the fine cooperation I've received, from my, associates at the 'Y,' as well as that given by the many, many other persons who have sponsored teams in leagues and tournaments, and coaches who have participated in our clinics and talked at our dinners.

Dailey asked the jury- "It's acting under an immediate and 'right now', situation, not after you've gone away arid gone outside, and after a lapse of time. There was no self defense in this case." Halbritter, quoting the Golden Rule with a Bible in his hand, characterized Mrs. Rodeheaver as a city girl from Lyons, France, who came "from a land far away" to a strange farm life. "She came to us as a stranger in a lonely land," he said, "and the case of state against Odette Rodeheaver began' that day.'This is hot the case as it would have been if it had been your daughter. Her case is unique." Dailey said it was inconceivable that Mrs. Rodeheaver did not know her husband was dead until the next morning, as she testified, especially since the body was covered with a quilt that night in her presence. Wife Assault Cited Halbritter dwelled on the rundown condition of the Rodeheaver home and - said Rodeheaver was only fined $5 recently when arrested for assault' on his wife.
