The defense lost an attempt, just before Attorney Floyd E. Thompson brought the case to an end, to put Into evidence a complicated chart on which a government expert had •written involved algebra ' showing the value of some Insull stock. Few Witnesses This Afternoon A few government witnesses—accountants—were to take the stand for rebuttal testimony, with the prospect that the case would come to a close today. Defense attorneys are then expected to make new motions for directed verdicts of acquittal, with closing arguments following the judge's ruling on these. Cross-examination by Federal Prosecutor Leslie E. Salter today was devoted to questions as to the value of various Insull stocks, and the amounts the Insulls received •from 'their various investment trusts for stocks originally held by the Instills. , Under the prosecutor's questions, young Insull finally admitted the stock of Corporation Securities was "worthless" in September of 1931. "I don't want to quibble," he said. ''The report submitted to us shows the stock was 17 cents in the red, but that i« on liquidating- value alone." : "Do you know that after that date, and during September, more than 30,000 shares of common stock were sold to the public? 1 "I don't know the exact figure. I'll accept it." Witness Holds His Ground Shown a sheaf of the reports, Insull maintained stubbornly that the stock was not worthless in spite of the fact that by liquidating value it was in. the red. "Ars-figured by your own company, it had a value of $11.21 Jess than nothing on December 31, 1931, didn't ft?" "It shows a liquidating value of that,- yes. My liquidating value if I die and go to the morgue is about $5, but I value myself at more than that." The liLsull family sold about $100,000 worth of stocks in March, 1932, a month before the investment trusts went into receivership, Insull admitted, but he denied they were "getting out." ""They were on accounts in brokers' offices; the brokers sold us out. The only other sale wa.s made by a banker for a $506 loan." Max Ruthlalt (above), proprietor of a sporting goods store in Passaic, N.

IS RESPONSIBLE EVEN THOUGH SON IS DEAD MOTION TO DISMISS CASE OF BRUBAKER VS, ASCNER Claims Bill Does Not State Proper Cause of Action; Divorce. Granted Today A divorced.husband is responsible for payment of bills contracted through emergency operations, doctors' and hospital care and likewise for the funeral expenses of his child, according to a ruling made in circuit court today by Judge A. H Manus, when the court directed that Floyd Guenter, Pearl City-rural mall carrief, should pay $350 due as doctors' fees, hospital and funeral expense in the case of his son, who died a few months ago. The case is an unusual one and the first time that such a question has arisen in the Stephenson county circuit court. The Guenters were divorced, some time ago and the husband ordered to pay his wife, Dorothy Guenter, $15 per month for the support of their child. The child became ill, through swallowing hard field corn and an emergency operation became necessary. Subsequently the child died and, it was stated, the father refused to pay the expenses on the grounds he was sup- Dorting the child through the $15 nonthly payments and could not be asked to pay for any expense, after the child had died. However, Judge Manus held that, despite a ack of decisions on-this point, the 'ather was responsible for the debts. The plaintiff was represented by Attorney L. A. Jayne, the case hav- ng been heard one week ago. The court further held that the husband's regular $15 monthly pay- nents for the support of the child would now cease, JJrubakcr-Ascher Case A motion to dismiss the bill of ;omplaint in the action of David Brubaker, Freeport, vs Mayor John Ascher, wherein the plaintiff wrought suit for $10,000 for alleged lefamation of character, was made n circuit court today. Arguments vere heard this afternoon by Judge „ H. Manus the defense, contend- 1K the plaintiff did not state a roper cause of action. The plain- iff's attorneys indicated they would sk leave of court to amend their jill, in the event the court held he complaint was not properly drawn.

Hor Imaginative Childhood It was 72 years ago that, with her sisters, Lorina and Edith, she accompanied the sliy and Imaginative Oxford don up the river to Qostow, and on the way begged him to "tell us a story." In after years, she remembered him largely as a grown- ip person who had the tantalising mblt of falling asleep : in the midst of the most engrossing adventures, and of awakening 'with the "cruel" declaration, "that's all until the icxt time. ' Alice's adventures In the fascl- lating below-ground world were elaborated on subsequent boating rips. She watched Mie hatter trying to put the dormouse into the tea- >ot, she heard the grass rustle M he white rabbit hurried pa.st, she Istened defiantly to the queen's ommand of "off with her head," uid then she went on, through Hie ooklng glass, Into another* world irhern everything was topsy-turvy. Alice, and her two starry-eyed l.sters, compelled the dignified mathematics instructor to write out be advnriturps for them. In the ml; the tales were written for the whole world of mile girls, and for all subsequent generations of little girls. The Alice of late, years was a dignified Victorian widow of a country gentleman, with the training and faith of a daughter of a very Reverend Dean of Christ church. Around her, a con.slanl, reminder of the younger Alice, were the China figurines of the characters xo well known U> childhood. Two years ago she embarked on another glorious adventure. Honoring the centonnlBl of Lewis Carroll, she went to America, and on her 80th birthday anniversary, was given a welcome by New York Which was a mixture of tumult and reverence.

The pre-sident in his brief talk remarked: - , Then and Now "There Is a very definite analogy ' jetween those days and ours. To most of the pioneers the necessities of the new life called for new of- 'orts and experiments to which they had not been accustomed in their earlier years in the more ordered civilization of the Atlantic seaboard, Survival itself demanded immediate, arid new action. "We are carrying on, we shall car- 7..on, the purposes of these men and women of Harrodsburg.
