10 CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE t WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 14. 1938. NM TOW ft prevents here oeh day observations intended WHO'S Vi(HJ W XUR WW? fA SMALL BO.Y m an Qfcjp. vil lage early formed the habit of hanging around a woodworking shop which was among the few business activities in his meager environment. And the worker there whom he specially loved to watch was a genial,, gray-haired old patternmaker, who was also by way of being a home-made philosopher. One day as he finished outlining an intricate and, to his admiring onlooker, extremely beautiful effect in scrolls and leaves the old man paused, and tapped his pencil on the pattern before him. "Laddie" (his favorite Scotch salutation), "my neighbors here in the shop are going to follow this design, and when they've carried it out, they will have something wonderful to show as a result." His eyes sparkled in a friendly grin. "I'm wondering, laddie, as I see you run in and out of this doorway here each day, what kind of a pattern you'll be following, as you go out into life ? 'Will it be a careless thing,' I say to myself, 'or will he take some one of those fine and noble lives that have gone before him, or are still around him, and pattern his mind and heart after them?' What do you say, lad wouldn't it be a splendid thing for you, and for your loved ones, it you were to pick a Lincoln or Franklin or an Ldison tor your pattern, and turned out a life that was as beautiful before men as this little ornament seems to us?" ... The old man's dust lies somewhere quiet in the cemetery of that Ohio town. The small bov has long since reached manhood, and followed patterns both of personal choice and of destiny s determinin?. But thanks to the canny Scotch chilosoohcr of his childhood he made, on the whole, manly and memorable men the models for his own private approximation, and has lived a life spiritually rich, if not spectacular, in consequence. In the tlav of "Bunker Bean" tre mendous thinsrs happen when a spirit Jess vouth is told his ancestor was Na poleon, and he chooses to emulate the little Corsican's exploits. So each of us. in great or less degree, has patterned his aims and thoughts upon some hero of history or fiction seme inspiring friend some superb character in a play seen at the right moment. And thereby discovered that the Law of Pat terns never fails cither to justify or condemn everv such choice. Reveal Who's Who in vour life, and you disclose a pretty accurate pattern of your own personality. SLQNQE SLAYER SHOT VICTIM IN BACK, JURY TOLD Hits Office Wife's Plea of Self-Defense.

The shooting, last Oct. 17, occurred In front of the Benton Harbor city hall and in the shadow of the library end the opera house. There were, as a result, many witnesses on hand soon after the first shots rang out. The fire department came down the brass pole as a man and the police came pouring out of their station, since both stations are in the city hall. "I had just dozed off," said Fireman Adam Dutcnf Weber, " when 1 heard two shots. " We sleep in our underwear, socks, and shirt. Our boots are on the floor through our trousers legs so we can pull up' 'our trousers, snap and snap, and be dressed, called the boys and was down' the brass pole in 30 to 60 seconds. Cries for Help Described. " I heard some one say, ' Help, help. Don't shoot!' Then I saw Mrs. Dull shoot again from 2 or 3 feet from Holbrook. She began hitting him with his hat." Fireman Maurice Shepardson said he was next down the pole after Weber, but that Weber was already going out the door. Shephardson knew Mrs. Dull, whom he called Pat, ar do many of her friends, although she prefers Fern. He accompanied her to the police station, he said, and gave her a cig-aret. "I said, 'I'm sorry, Pat,'" he testified. But he said she replied: "I'm not sorry. I'd do it again." Asked on cross-examination whether Mrs. Dull seemed bewildered at the time of the shooting the defense con tends that Holbrook had just dazed her with a blow Shephardson an swered: "No I'd say she was just mad and disgusted." Most of the witnesses testified that Mrs. Dull had a black eye and a bump over it. Dr. Carl A. Mitchell testified that he was called to the hospital as Hoi brook lay dying. He said that Hoi brook had been shot twice in the back and twice in the head, but that there were no holes in the hat. Pros ecutors Westin and Small are trying to show that Mrs. Dull shot Holbrook first in the back and then fired tw'd more bullets into his head as' he lay' dying. Mrs. Dull watched the proceedings with interest. Son Beams Tell of Shooting (Story in adjoining column.) lry in tt.fftfi rttn ! ttin. ) i : ?

Prosecutor Westin, who retires Jan. 1 in favor of Prosecutor Elect Small, told the jurors in his opening statement that Mrs. Dull was jealoils 'of the attentions which Holbrook paid his family in Kalamazoo. He painted Holbrook as a loving father, admired by his children despite long years of separation. Dewhirst pictured Mrs. Dull in his opening statement as a simple country girl, married at the age of 16, whose first romance ended because of her husband's cruelty. Holbrook, an experienced attorney, had little difficulty in persuading her that they might become husband and wife without the usual formalities, Dewhirst said. But the attorney emphasized that Holbrook had represented himself as unmarried when the romance began. Holbrook and Mrs. Dull bought their home in Benton Harbor, the attorney explained, in the name of husband and wife, and they were known during the eight years they lived together as Mr. and Mrs. Holbrook. j to open his shirt to show to the jury the ab- 71 u.

IP) Myrl Alderman, music arranger and accompanist for Ruth Etting, radio singer, unbuttoned his shirt in court today and showed a jury the bullet wound he said her former husband, Martin Snyder, former Chicagoan, inflicted last Oct. 15. Alderman said Snyder accosted him just as he finished his work in a radio studio and said he wanted to have a talk about Miss Etting.""' " 'He said he had reports Miss Etting and I were married," Alderman testified. "V told him that ''Wasn't true!"

Alderman said Snyder demanded that' he be' takeh to see' Miss E.tttng. He said he promised to give Snyder's telephone number to Miss Etting, leaving it to her whether she should meet Snyder. He said Snyder was angered, took a pistol from his pocket, and told him: "If you make a move it will be the last you'll ever make." ' Alderman said he drove to his home, got out, and that Snyder marched 1 behind him, the pistol shoved into his back. Alderman's story of the argument and the shooting followed closely those of Miss Etting and Snyder's daughter, Edith, 21 years old, who said she fired at her father after he shot Alderman. Miss Snyder described the scene in Alderman's home the night of Oct. 15, saying her father told her, Alderman, and Miss Etting, "This is going to be the end of all of you." She said Alderman was shot in the .abdomen when he started to plead with her father. Daughter Sees Struggle. "Ruth ran out of the room," said Miss Snyder. "I heard another shot and my father and Miss Etting struggling in a bedroom. I went in there, pulled him away from Ruth and begged him not to shoot any more." Miss Snyder followed Miss Etting on the stand. The former radio head- liner admitted on cross-examination by Jerry Giesler she accepted a diamond and platinum bracelet from Snyder when he arrived here last July from New York. When Prosecutor U. U. Blalock took up redirect examination of Miss Etting she said that in the three years before she retired from singing Snyder caused many difficulties that made it hard for her to get work. She said she had to go to England to work, and even there Snyder made tiouble for her. 1 w 1 1' Maitliew 3. Kane. I'K'. V: WireptfMo. ?, BITSHEI.S OF GRAIN BCKN. Kansas Oily, Kas..

J The "vengeance 'of gangland" kiilers7 who slew a young man by mistake a month -ago, reached inside the walls of Sing Sing prison today and brought death to the man they were after. Matthew J. Kane, 41 years old, died in the prison hospital from infection caused by a stab wound. He was slashed Sunday with a sharpened table knife, which broke and left a jagged piece in his neck. Five convicts were placed in solitary confinement 'over the affair. H,lahe escaped' death a month ago when'" uhderwbrld 'killers mistook Jonri'F. O'Haral a young New Xo'rk financial investigator, for the convict. Police ' said O'Hara's killing was a blunder that Kane' was intended as the target for the hasty fusillade of shots fired the night of Nov. 18. Parole Prepares the Trap. Kane was released from prison on parole six hours before O'Hara was shot. The convict had promised to go directly to the home of his mother. In stead he stopped at a tavern, which violated his parole but saved his life for the time. O'Hara, who resembled Kane, ar rived home about the time the convict should have reached his mother's apartment in the same building in which the investigator lived with his widowed mother and sister. The kill ers, lying in ambush near the en trance, apparently mistook him for Kane and shot him down. Kane was seized and returned to Sing Sing as a parole violator. On Sunday he was among a group of convicts marched 400 feet through a corridor from the old stone cell block to the new prison on top of a hill. Wounded io Neck. When the prisoners emerged from the corridor Kane announced calmly that he had been hurt, and pointed to blood streaming from a wound in his neck. He insisted, however, that he was not injured seriously and it was not until yesterday that the fragment of knife blade was dis covered. Kane died today, declining stub bornly to identify his assailants. An exhaustive inquiry was launched by prison authorities into the slaying, but no other prisoners would admit having seen the stabbing. Kane originally was sent to Sing Sing in 1924. for robbery, but had been paroled and returned to prison several times. In 1035, while on pa role, he was questioned in the mur der of Thomas ITlie Harp Sheridan Police believe he might have been slain in retaliation for that crime or in connection with the $427,000 Rubel armored car holdup in Brooklyn in 1933, of which he was supposed to have known the inside story. fn.fjt .
