(/P)— The case of Wally, six-ton elephant who killed a man, moved into superior court today for 'a judicial decision on whether men in turn should kill him. Judge Frank Deasy set 10 a. m., as the hour to hear arguments on a temporary restraining order which prevented execution of the beast but a few minutes before the scheduled time yesterday. The temporary order was obtained by Attorney Alexander Mosslln acting for another attorney, Emlllo Lashetto, who contended "such dignity should not be destroyed." The petition asserted Wally fatally gored and trampled his keeper, Edward Brown, 45, Tuesday, "because of the cruel and inhuman treatment" accorded him. Brown at the time was leading the big tusker back to his own pen from a group of four female elephants. Mosslin sped by taxicab from Judge Deasy's courtroom to the zoo to serve the .restraining order on Superintendent Edmund Heller and two police • marksmen just as they were loading powerful rifles to execute Wally, who tugged at chains which bound himjo concrete pillars.
