PORTl-AND, June 11 (By As-.
sociated Press)) Charles E. Bu
chanan occupied the stand all day ,
under gruelling direct and cross
examination in today's session of
the "fake" stOTk case being
heard in circuit court here.
As court adjourned opposing
counsel was engaged in a wran
gle over whether Buchanan's
spells of sickness to which he
said he had been suject were
caused y 'indigestion of by his
discovery that' his wife had de
ceived him as to the parentage of
a baby boy." Buchanan is suing
Dr. William O. Spencer and Mrs.
Alta B. Y. Spalding, proprietor
of the women's hospital, for $25,-
000 damages on the ground that
they conspired with bis wife in
palming off on him a baby boy
of which he was not the father.
The defense counsel believed it
scored a substantial point today
when the court ruled that Bu
chanan's hope' to recover damages
would depend upon his ability to
prove that the defendants had
conspired 'wilfully, wantonly and
maliciously to deceive "and dam
age him.1 The ruling -was made
when defense attorneys objected
to Buchanan '- giving testimony
concerning 'mental suffering,
which they argued could have no
bearing on an action for fraud
and deceit. - .
Direct examination of Buchan
an ended suddenly this morning
after he testified, with a display
of emotion, that his wife's hoax
