WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 13,. 1985 PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, Texas PAGE SEVEN JOS? T SHOUTS TO JUSTICE— ALMOST BREAKS UP CASE By WILLIAM A. KINNEY (CntiyrlBht, 1035. by The AKSocinteil 1'rOTS.) FLEMINGTON. N. J., Fab. 13.— The Lindbergh kidnap-murder jury, which for 31 days has heard the State and defense battle for Bruno Hauptmann's life, returned to the Courtroom today to receive 'legal instructions and then to decide his guilt or Innocence. The charge of Justice Thomas W. Trenchard of the supreme court, expected to take .less than an hour, was the only business before the eight men and four women could retire to a bare, padlocked room in the rear of the courthouse to consider their verdict. ' 'Both the defense and the prosecution, their final arguments over, appeared confidence of a favorable Verdict. Edward J. Reilly, chief of Hauptmann's legal staff, declared: "The inane talk of an irresponsible clergyman ruined Attorney General Vyilentz's summation arid assured for Bruno Hauptmann an atiquittal." He referred to the Rev. Vincent G. Burns of Teaneck, who shouted hear the close of the attorney-general's address yesterday that someone had confessed to him the kid- nap-kllltng. Wilentz offered one of the most .powerful arguments I have ever heard in any courtroom," Reilly said, ''but-the whole value of it was destroyed by the minister." ' Prosecutors, he said, insisted on . dismissing the minist:r from tha cr-unty without charge, while Reilly himself wanted the man sentenced to days in .on .charge of con- U.mpt of court. Mr. Burns cjnmatically nltrad- ed the. ccivri's attention as WilenlK was about to finish his plea to send IJniipfrhann to 'the electric chair. ''"If'your honor plsase—" came his vcice from d group-of spectators. ' ••"I want that' man taken out," c'ied Wilentz. "A man confessed this crime to me in my church," the clergyman shouted. -Spectators grabbed him and state police rushed forward. Someone shoved a hand over his mouth. Finally h° was pulled from the courtroom bv officers! After a whispered conference with attorneys, Justice' 'Trenchard ordered the jury to' disregard what they had iust seen and heard. 'Adding he ViacV hoped to deliver his'Charge'before the session closed, ' the justice said: ; "I "think it'is better for you to get a good night's sleep and tnke the case' in the morning with a fresh mind." Extra'state police and deputies were ordered to be on hand early today in anticipation of a record crowd. • Throngs filled the streets outside the courthouse yesterday as the .furors entered and left the building. ' Justice Trenchard's charge was expected to be brief, in contrast to His Is the Mightiest Pen in Pension ETHIOPIA ACTS TO DEFY ITALY AND MUSSOLINI Seldom lias a single person risen so quickly to so great an influence over Congress as the man pictured above in throe characteristic iiuses.

A RAPID-FIRE ROMANCE BY EVAN EVANS SYNOPSIS: Mateo Rubriz and brother Pascual have ridden north into the United States to get the Montana Kid's help in recovering the emerald crown of Our Lady, stolen by the governor from the church in 'Duraya.

Only when the way war, lev?l and there v/as H •hancR for a lops or a brisk trot would he .step into the saddle and ride ' the mule through the dust which the horses raised. "Why dees he do it?" asked Montana. "Once a mule that was carrying him through the mountains slipped on ;i frozen rock and broke its leg," answered "Since then h heard from the prosecution and de. fense. The justice was expected to instruct the jury to find one of three verdicts: Guilty of murder in the first degree; guilty of murder in the first degree, with a recommendation for mercy, or acquittal. '•The possibility he would tell the jury .they might find a second degree verdict was considered remote. ;'A flat first degree verdict carries a mandatqry death sentence. Such a verdict with a . recommendation for mercy carries a life sentence, but in most instances a New Jersey prisoner sentenced for life is eligible Idr parole after 15 years. A second degree verdict would' mean a maximum ' sentence of 30 years. 'In the 'event of an acquittal, Hauptm'ann would not go free, for Elionx authorities have filed a de- tainer against him on an indictment charging him with, extortion in connection with possession of the ransom 1 " money,' CAUGHT BY A SNEEZE PHILADELPHIA- 1 -Two Philadelphia policemen are grateful for a sneeze.'

Even then he would not tak-j a horse. A mule was too good for him, he said. You sec, he is but a child." "A child that mcves mountains, eh?" said Montana. "But why did he ccme north with you?" "He had heard the thousand stories about you, brother. He was hungry to see your face. That will make him a great man. with the shepherds and the villlagers." "Ah! So that was the reason!" murmured Montana, But though he smiled, the first doubt had entered his soul, coldly. He saw that he would have to b: on his guard from now on. As they came through the hills into view of Diiraya, the sunset flared and died quickly. It made the while walls of the town bloom for a moment. It made the looping river run red. Then the soft twilight rose out of the valleys, overflowed the hills, invaded the sky, and brought down the stars. They descended into the plain. "You tell me, Brother Pascual," said Montana. "Shall I pass as a true Mexican cowboy?" "Why not, dear friend?" asked the friar. "Your hair is black. And now that you have rubbed a little of that slain into your skin, you are as dark as most. Your hair is already black, and as for the blue eyes, those are found in Mexico often enough "Besides, the red mare is the sort of horse that a famous charro would rids. And you have a suit of yellow leather with silver spangles a?l ovei It.' The good Mexican speech .comes so easily off -your tongue that even I, who know, at time forget the truth about you." "Tell me, also," said laughing, "if you think Montana that you ccHlcJ ever really open your heart to a gringo." After a long pause the friar said: "I can at least try, my friend. All men are the children of one God So I can at least try!" In Durayp they separated. The friar went to the church But the bishop was not theye. So he went to the bishop's palace anc climbed the stairs which were oper and unguarded day and night in order that the poorest of the pooi might come to the Bish°P Emilianp MECHANICS THAT KNOW HOW A garage can be equipped with all the modern machinery that is known, but unless capable mechaniqs are e^plpyejj \o operate/ the machifiery, satisfactory \vork cannot CHWERY AND WE HAJ FE&IXY FIRST Across the Street Schneider HpfceJ in the little, bare, upper room which was all that h; reserved for himself out of the splendors he might have, enjoyed.

"Give me a blessing of a special grace, for I hav.! done n thing that will bring much evil en my country." 'I havs helped bring into Mexico terrible man," said the friar. "I have brought El Ksed all the way from the north to'Durnya." "Ah, my son," said the bishop, "why have you clone this? That is a known man and n lawbreaker." "He is n lawbreaker," said the friar, "and in fact he breaks the luw so well that Rubriz would not try to steal awu.y the emerald crown of Our Lady unless he had the help of the gringo." "Are they not great enemies?" Esbed the bishcn. "The stnry is that the gringo stole son (if RubriK." away the foster ''They are great enemies, but nlso they love one another," friar. said the table with Rubriz. The peon kept smacking his thick lips over his pul- que. He looked at his drink with astonished eyes, and with continued amazement stared at his guest. For here sat a fortune in the skin of a man. But to Onate, and to Onate's family, the bandit appeared as a good angel. He could trust them absolutely. They would hardly allow him to spend enough money to buy the very food that he consumed And they dreaded almost more than they desired th: gold piece which he always left behind him when he disappeared. It v-as in the !ioii:;a oi Onate that Rubriz had wished In put El Kepd al'iO but Montana refused, point blank.

Her rider sat crosswise, with his left leg thrown over.the high pommel of the saddle. He carried under his aim a guitar which he had picked up cheap in a musicshop. Now that it was tuned, he struck out a few soft chords and then let his voice start ringing in a very Spanish song. That song penetrated into the inn of Miguel Santos, where every chair around the little tables was filled ar.d cigaret butts lay about everywhere on the earthen .floor, and the lamplight showed nothing very clearly except the faces of the dirty playing-cards and the lower twijjts and whorls of smoke. <•• Miguel Santos himself ha4 stepped out from behind hJs little* bo,r JGKER FOUND IN LEGION' talians Are Blamed For Trouble in Africa ROME, Feb. 13.

Patman Claims Bill Would Authorize Payment of Bonus But Not Pay It. BY CLARENCE M. WRIGHT, A.socin.tcd Press Staff Writer. WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 M J >— Advocates of Uin Patman bill to pay the soldiers' bonus with new currency reported with cbvious pine today that they had found a "nullifying .joker" in tlie Ameri- con Legion's lion us bill. Rep. Patman (D., Texas) was one of the discoverers. He snid the Legion bill, which propose' immediate payment of the $2,100000.000 bonus but dees net specify how payment .shall be financed, concludes with this language: "There is hereby authorized to be appropriated such amounts as may be necessary to carry out tlie provisions of this act." • "That." Patman ;;nid, "would not even let the treasury issue new bonds to pay off the certificates. If the Legion's plan is followed, congress will have to pass two bills— this first one 'authorizing' an appropriation and a later one. actually making the appropriation. "It begin. 1 ; to look 'to me as though the national commander of the Legion (Frank N. Bclgrano Jr.) ha;; served a double curve on us. Why, the Legion bill is just a make-believe bill." Patman said he had read the Legion measure several times bui that the difference between the proposed "authorization" and an actual "appropriation" previously had escaped him "because this provision is so artfully drawn."
