Unusual Concert at Ben
efit for Home
It took an awfully high spring
to get the top note of their con
cert number, "Music of Spring,"
but the Woman's Club chorus at
the First Methodist church last
night made it admirably. That
chorus could sing anything, from
spring to the dead of an Arctic
winter, and make it as beautiful
as the Aurora Borealis.
And that's what they did, with
every offering. There are 32 of
the singers, and there were at
least eight colors of the Aurora

Madalynne Obenchain Dismissed-
Burch to Be Tried
LOS ANGELE$. Dec. 4. Mrs.
Madalynne Obenchain. twice tried
for the murder of her sweetheart,
J. Belton Kennedy, was a free
woman tonight, the indictment
against her having been dismissed
on motion of District Attorney
Thomas Lee Woolwine.
Arthur C. Burch. Jointly
charged with Mrs. Obenchain, was
also freed, so far as the Kennedy
murder charge was concerned,
but his attorney, Paul W. Schenk,
swore to an insanity warrant
against him, and Judge John W.
Shenk ordered him committed to
the psychopathic ward of the Los
Angeles county hospital for ob
servation. May Again Face Jury
Burch, who was tried three
times for the slaying of Kennedy,
may face a jury again to have his
mental condition decided. His
insanity plea was made at the
first trial, but not at the others.
Mr. Schenk stated in court that
he always had believed Burch in
sane, and declared that if his
client had been acquitted at any
of his three trials, he still would
have asked the court to try him
on an insanity charge. In this
connection it was recalled Mr.
Schenk asked that Bnrch's sanity
be determined before his first
trial and that his father, the Rev
erend W-. A. Burch of Evanston,
111., had insisted he believed his
Woman Going to Farm
Newspapermen found Mrs.
Obenchain in the reception room
of the county jail in conversation
with a woman who sat as a juror
in her second trial. She said rha
was surprised at the outcome and
that she had no plans for the
future she cared to make public.
I am going to Itve Los
Angeles but won't go rery far,"
"You might say I am going out
on the farm."
She declined to say whether she
would re-marry Ralph Obenchain,
ner divorced husband. Oben
chain, an attorney practicing: in
Chicago, assisted in her defense
during her first trial and secured
a marriage license in her name
and his own.
Burch was later arraigned on
a charge of insanity and his hear
ing before the Los Angeles
county lunacy commission set for
Thursday, December 7. He was
transferred from the Jail to the
psychopathis ward of the Los
Angeles county hospital
Old Friend Protests

slain man, who, he once said.
had been as much his chum as
his son, stood in the crowd out

Oberchain's departure and the re

"I shall protest," said Mr.
Kennedy. I had not been ad
vised of this contemplated action
and I surely believe it is one of
the gravest acts of injustice ever
recorded. My son can never
speak again, and I believe it my
duty to carry this matter as far
as legally possible."

Hubbub in City Council
When Steinbock Wants
His Money Returned
Pandemonium, made up of con
sternation, hilarity and crocodile
tears, reigned supreme at the city
council meeting last night when
H. Steinbock, Junk dealer by
trade, arose and, introduced by
Alderman Hal Patton, made a de

Keith Orpheum variety.
His was a tale of woe. One
Harry Seaman, a lad, now wisely
among the city's "missing," had
been caught in a car with a jug
of whiskey. Steinbock and a
traveling salesman out of the pity
of their hearts had agreed to pay
$24 apiece to secure his release
from jail. The salesman paid $24
and Stetinbock $9. It was all
he had, he said, but he promised
Judge Earl Race that he would
write his check for the remaining
$15. Meanwhile, on his given
word Seaman was released soon
after mpsteriously disappearing.
Now Steinbock was before the city
fathers to convince them that he
could not afford to pay the agreed

Race arose and scathingly an
