A murder case comes up for trial. Thomason is out of town. Berkshire will have to say to the court: ‘You must continue this case. The mayor is out of the city. What will happen to the poor boy if Tom Lea and Mayor Thomason get on the opposite side of a case? Hits at Berkshire “I am told that at the only public appearance Berkshire has made in the campaign he sang a song entitled: “What Shall I Do?
