FINAL PLEAS ARE
LAUNCHED IN TRIAL
. " (Continued from 1)
and murder of 14 year old Robert
"Franks.-? .. ; J' ". J :. , '
The hearing came thus near to
Its end because Benjamin Bach
rach of counsel for the defense
used only a '. part of the morning
Bession In the last plea for the
student defendants, lie picked up
a few stray threads of the defense
case and wove them into the de
sign of its fabric.
" Argues From Law J
Mr. Crowe based his argument,
he emphasized, not on the philo
sophies of the sages, not upon the
"prattle and piffle of paid alien
ists concerning childish phantas
ies and dreams of supermen,"
but "upon the laws of Illinois," '
"And the law says," he shouted
with a stirring gesture, "that In
cases of extreme , violence ? tne
penalty shall be fixed at death."
- The state's attorney snapped
his oratorical fingers at the men
tal sickness theory of the defense,
' based, he said, upon "hairline de
cisions of high paid alienists,"
whom be was pleased to call "the
three wise men from the east."
He made light of "all this twad
dle about childish compacts and
youthful .phantasies and dream
lands of Teddy bears and detec
tives careers" and called the pro
ceedings "back from laboratories,
psychopathic , hospitals and com
munist mass meetings to the crim
inal court of Cook county."
. His argument once took ; him
into realms of controverted points
and precipitated as a climax to
the day's proceedings a disagree
... ment between counsel which
brought Into the open record a
portion of the coroner's physi
cian's testimony on his post mor
tem examination of the body of
Bobby Franks after it was found
in a, water filled railroad culvert.
The defense maintained that Mr.
Crowe had drawn an unfair infer
ence as to : the condition of the
body In relation to the crime, an
inference which they said was not
borne out by the coroner's report
To settle the controversy Judge
Caverly sent for the report and
announced a five minute recess to
give women an opportunity to
leave. He assured them that
court would adjourn immediately
after the reading but about half
ot those in the audience elected
to remain. Then the judge or
dered them out.
. Orders Women Out
"I want you to leave at once,"
he said. "Why persist in hearing
There was a scurry for the
doors and when the hubbub had
subsided only a third of the seats
In the room were occupied and
.1 . rl
muse oj men.
, The report was read and the
defense attorneys again asserted
it proved their point, ;i
"My contention is that the, wa
ter in the culvert washed away
the evidence," said Mr. Crowe.
"Well, we have the report now
, and yott will hot want to go be
yond that,": said Judge Caverly as
he adjourned court. "
The early adjournment prevent
ed Mr. Crowe getting as far along
in his argument as he anticipated
1 He probably will continue through
the entire day tomorrow. .
