Mrs. Aamodt had asked for 52,000. She was given this amount, less 5136 which had been paid to her by her father, so that the actual, sum she will be paid is $1,864. The jury began its deliberations al 3:30 p. m. and reached a verdict at 8:30 p. m. Considered Unusual Case. Trial of the case before Judge M. H. Kepler in district court began Wednesday with fhe selection of the jurors. The case was one oi the most unusual heard at Northwood in many years, presenting, as one of the attorneys in the case stated, "a panoramic picture of life seldom seen." Tali, slender, with dark hair and of attractive appearance, the plaintiff was calm and self possessed during the trial. Her father, the defendant, past 80 years of age, presented a striking appear- ince in the courtroom, his curly, jushy hair only slightly gray, and lis sprightly manner, marked him as unusually well preserved for one of his age. He could easily pass for a man a score of years 'ounger than his actual age as far as appearan.ee is concerned. No Recognition Given. Seated on opposite, sides of the counsel's table In the courtroom, neither gave ' evidence of any knowledge that the other was in he courtroom. No word or glance passed between them; either in r e e t i n g or resentment. Mrs. Aamodt was too prompt in her replies to the questions of her attor- leys to please Attorney Klass ot -edar Rapids, associated with County Attorney O. J. Wardwell ,n the defense, Mr. Klass being on nis feet, protesting with both voice' and gestures as she gave her replies before the court could rule on his objections. Mr. Klabo was not as sell possessed on the stand as wns his daughter. Attorney -E. M. Sabin of Northwood and Attorney L. R. Boomhower o£ Mason City, represented the plainlift Mr. Sabin was first to present the plea for the plaintiff, following the trial, speaking at 10:40 a m. Friday and drawing fiery objections to the court by Mr. Klass when referring to Mr. Idaho's ownership of a farm o£ 308 acres and consequent ability to make the payments claimed by the plaintiff as due her under an alleged verbal contract with her father, promising h e r c r e a m checks received as her compensation for work done. Speaks for Defense. Mr. Wardwell spoke first foi the defense, stating the Iowa la\v presumed a child would work foi a parent gratuitously in the absence o£ a rieTinite contract, the contention of the defense being that no such contract was ever entered into. His statement that the daughter had no thought of suci a claim until after she was prompted to such a claim by Henry Aamodt, her husband, to whom she was married after nearly five years at her father's home. Mr. Klass spoke for the defense after the noon recess, urging the jury to "protect all p a r e n t s against actions of- this nature" by denying the plaintiff any compensation which he termed as an "attempt to put the heat on Klabo for a shake down" and b!amtn_ Mr. Aamodt jointly with his wife for concocting the scheme, accusing them o£ "biting the hand tha fed them" as they remained at the Klabo home for four months after starting suit, according to hit, statements. Mr. Boomhower closed for Hit. plaintiff and he bitterly scorcc Klabo as "grudging and grasping willing to sap his daughter's life blood in his service without compensation."
