Takes time out in court to burp 19-day-old baby HOUSTON (UPI) — Percy Foreman, a burly defense lawyer, jarred proceedings at a pre - trial murder hearing Wednesday in district court. He swung a 19-day-old infant into his arms with the deft handling of a mid-wife and burped it over his shoulder. District Judge Sam Davis, to whom Foreman had just said: "Judge, I've gat to burp the baby," sat open - mounted, apparently too stunned to reply. Foreman was in court arguing with other attorneys whether Mrs. Scott While, 1C. should be forced to appear before the grand jury. The infant was Mrs. White's, and Foreman had asked Davis to invalidate her subpoena. She was brought to the hearing on a stretcher, and fed (he baby from a bottle while lawyers | argued. j Foreman said she was still too weak from the stress and j strain of childbirth to be up I and about. | Mrs. White is a stepdaughter of Jack W. Bonds, 42, accused >of shooting to death her former boy friend, William John Wald en HI, 15, in early 1963. I The district attorney's office suspects someone has attempted to get Mrs. White to commit j perjury because she was mis- jsing for several days while prosecutors tried to contact her. i Davis. apparently unim- i pressed by Foreman's maternal antics, overruled the request and the young mother was subpoenaed for both the grand jury and for Bonds' murder trial as a prosecution witness. The grand jury was expected to talk to her about possible perjury. The pretty, red-haired mother was Beverley Chambers when j her boyfriend was shot. Bonds was charged with shooting the boy in the head in anger over this attention to the girl. It was quiet in the courtroom until Mrs. White called upon 'Foreman to take the baby. But the ensuing commotion prevent- jed anyone from hearing whether the baby actually burped. SCORCHED COOKIES EURLIN'GTON'. Iowa (UPI)— The Midwest Biscuit Co. scorched 50.000 cookies when an electric short stopped a conveyor belt pulling the cookies through two huge ovens. Dress to suit temperatures HOUSTON (UPI) — Cold weather and a broken-down heating plant Wednesday gave girls at Friendswood High School an excuse to wear blue jeans and pedal pushers. Bill Powell, principal of the school, which is under heavy Quaker influence, said the garb was all right until heating equipment arrived from New York. "I'm wearing pajamas under my clothes, myself," he said. Quote of Day COLUMBIA. S.C.—State Sen. John D. Long, attacking the federal government's report linking smoking with cancer: "I hope South Carolina will be big enough to stand on its own two feet, drink a little, smoke a few cigarettes and tell that damn crowd in Washington to go to hades." Wailing trombone silenced Teagarden jazz career ends • NEW ORLEANS (UPI)-Jack Teagarden, whose wailing trombone and moaning voice spelled the blues to jazz fans for more than 30 years, was found dead in his motel room in New Orleans Wednesday. j An autopsy today showed he idied of pneumonia and a liver condition. His personal physician said Wednesday it appeared Teagarden died of cir• rhosis of the liver. Teagarden's body was fourd [sprawled on the floor of his room. Clad only in his underwear, a bottle of beer was trapped beneath his body and an opener was clasped in one hand. He had apparently been dead several hours, possibly since Tuesday. He was last seen about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when a bellhop brought a supply of I beer to his room. Teagarden was in New Orleans to play an engagement at ; the Dream Room, a French Quarter night club. "Jack has been sick quite a long time and didn't want anyone to know about it," his doctor said. "He was a very stubborn guy and wanted to play his music." Teagarden was born Jack Weldon Leo Teagarden, Aug. 20, 1905, in Vernon, Tex. While very' young, his parents moved to Oklahoma. Teagarden went to New York in the 1920s, and in 192S joined j Benny Pollack's orchestra, an ! aggregation that spawned such I big-name jazz and swing men las Bennie Goodman and Harry 'James. Teagarden was with Pollack [as trombonist and vocalist until 1933. when he joined Paul Wbiteman's orchestra. While with Pollack, he cut his first record. Although highly successful with both Pollack and Whiteman, Teagarden as head of his own bands was anything but a winner. He drifted until 1946. when he teamed with trumpet great Louis Armstrong. From 1946 until 1952, he and Armstrong toured and cut records under the name "Armstrong-Teagarden All - Stars," with moderate success. It was in the 1950s that Teagarden regained his fame as one of the top jazz trombonists in the country. His records sold millions of copies, and the best of them all were "Basin Street Blues," "Shiek of Araby," "Aunt Hag- Xedlands Daily Facts Thurs., Jan. 16, 1964 - 7 Thompson to run for assembly Olan F.
