H. Howell, Crawford county triple slayer, looked forward today upon at least another month of life instead of execution Friday as a result of a state supreme court order late Tuesday. The court took under consideration a petition for a writ of mandamus to compel Warden S. L. Todhunter of the state penitentiary to hold a second sanity hearing for Howell. The action automatically stopped execution Friday. The court will take the petition up for decision at its next regular meeting Monday. Regardless of the decision it will be necessary for the governor to reset the date for execution. Tt is customary to give condemned persons at least thirty days between the date the execution is set and the day it is to be carried out. At the first sanity hearing for Howell the Jury was divided, A second was ordered held and the stat? sought unsuccessfully to return Howell to Crawford counly for thi> hearing. eclcral Farm Board's Fighting Head Is Man Who Gels Things Done.
