The testimony of French came after the defense had succeeded in holding off the testimony of George R. Linklns. Washington. D. C.. until its own Washington real estate appraisers could be present. Linkins. president of the real estate firm bearing his name, was ;o testify as to property values. The defense will have several " itnes^es of its own on this line. Corrected Tuesday's Testimony. French first asked and was granted permission by the court to correct his statement on the stand Tuesday afternoon ti»at a S109.782.76 note'of tfie Wai- brook Securities Company was worthless He had sinc« looked up the note's value, he said, and found it to be. in his judgment. $80.802.20. The Wai- brook Securities Company, he said, had S21.7S4 to meet it. This caused Ihe defense to contest the qualification of French as a witness, and his testimony on this account was ordered stricken out. Two · .at-c-ments of the state as to v.hat this cos? ly owned were admitted as statements. French then testified as u a series o: not; transactions c-f the B'.ue Rid^e Investment and Central Securities companies and Mr. Coblentz. with other corporations, as of their September '. value. Thi-s included the 595.000 note of the Guarantors Investment Corporation, in which the Blue Rid;, company figured. Note Had Five Signers. One of the tra tsactiorts referred to 2.213 shares of stock of the Continental Life Insurance Company, which were received by the Blue Ridge on a note signed by five persons. French identified four of these signers. Mr. Coolentz. John S. Hershey and T. 3. Hayward. of Frederick, and R. Paul Smith, of Hagerstown. but said he did not remember who the fifth signer was. The stock was held by the First National Bank of Pittsburgh, French testified. Asked by S:ate's Attorney James Clark -c-f ihe prosecution if he knew what was behind the transaction. French replied that he d.d not. Another item was the Grayson H. Stalcy note of September 5. 1329. It was brought out by the state that Staley and Coblentz are brxhers-in-lan.^The condition of the Staley Motor Company was discussed ana its balance sheet as cf September 30. 1931. was submitted in evidence, over ihe objection of the defense, which held that values of that date did not apply. The court held, however, that the sheet would give an indication of the company's condition at the time of the bank's close and admired :r.e statement ss evidence.
