Gandy said the money was paid to Wall to enlist his support for Doxey In a. Sept. IS run-off primary. It wa^ to be used to defray what he called the defeated candidate's "operating deficit." The witness had just begun to tell of similar conversations with Collins when thc portly former Congressman, his right first "cocked for a round-house punch, lunged at him from three feet away. Gandy, a slight man of about 150- poimds, raised his feet for protection. Thc force of Collins' charge upset tlie witness chair, Ganriy sprawled on his back on the floor Collins was trying to trample him when the policeman intervened.
