Story; was Strangled
Before Knife Used
Defense, stratagem to keep Mrs.
William H. Banshn from the wit
ness stand ia. the mnrder trial of
her husband, William H. Baughn,
developed yesterday afternoon In
the ease which has occupied six
cays beroro Judge McMahan. This
moTe, together with testimony of
Banghn himself, high-lighted the
Monday proceedings.
Defense finished its ease of
building up a self-defense picture
for Baughn at 6 o'clock yesterday,
save one detail which may come
early today In testimony of Dr.
V. E. Hockett, and the rebuttal
was started. The case Is expected
to go to the Jury sometime this
afternoon, probably about 4
o'clock. The trial will continue at
10: SO this morning.
Contrary to earlier announce
ment of the defense that they
would put Mrs. Baughn on the
stand to testify for her husband,
defense surprised the spectators
who packed the courtroom by plac
ing Dr. J. C. Evans , assistant
state hospital superintendent, and
Dr. Hockett on the stand to testi
fy to her mental condition.
Evans stated he had examined
the woman yesterday, and said "I
do not believe In the true sense of
the word she (Mrs. Bauhn) is in
sane, but she is mentally defici
ent," thus indicating that credence
might not be placed in her testi
mony. Dr. Hockett, county physi
cian, declared "the woman was of
unsound mind at one-time a year
ago In October."

crux of its self-defense utory built

chambers. The matter was taken
under advisement until this morn
ing, and Hockett may appear on
the stand again to testify on this
angle. Otherwise, the defense ease
is in.
Baughn, on the stand during
the morning hours, told of his visit
to the Robnett homo the evening
of November 13, said Robnett got
mad when Baughn refused to sign
a statement in connection with
an old car, and that Robnett
struck Baughn, knocking him out
through the screen door and rush
ing him Joff the porch onto the
ground. Baughn fell on the bot
tom, Robnett clutching at his
throat end strangling him, the de
fendant said, continuing that it

As soon as he got loose he went
away, and as ho did so, saw Rob-

slightly stooped over.

produced the blood-soaked under

Chubby Senator Joe Dunne.
long-time champion of bigger and
better highways in Oregon, yes
terday fathered a successful brace
of senate resolutions which, if
passed by the house and enforced
by the state highway commission,
will materially curb future capital
outlay on Oregon's highway sys

the commission from issuing ad
ditional road bonds except in case
of a catastrophe or for refunding
The second resolution declares
a state "moratorium" on new
highway construction save for the
completion of connecting links in
primary highways and for certain
road widening.
Some Oppose, Claim

Both measures passed with
lare majorities. Senators Burke,
Spaulding and Zimmerman hold

not sufficiently severe.
Senator Dunne declared his pro

Governor Sends Legislature
Fifth Address; Adequate

Governor Julius L. Meier late
yesterday sent his fifth short mes
sage to the legislature, this time
calling upon that body to amend
"the present motor transportation
act which is weak and deficient in
many respects."
The governor's message, read In
the senate In the afternoon and to
come before the house this morn
ing, called for readjustment of ex
isting motor vehicle legislation to
afford relief to motor vehicle own
ers, at The same time protecting
the credit of the state already ob
ligated by highway commission
bond Issues.
The governor called attention of
the legislature to the findings of
his own committee- on highway
transportation affairs which re
ported late last year.
He recommended the necessity
of keeping up all highway obliga
tions, of adequate maintenance of
present roads, of giving study to
the advisability of "carrying on a
modest construction program so
that small gaps in the present
highway system may be com
pleted." The governor indicated the mll-
lage tax taken from the highway
funds and given the counties for
market roads might be abolished
although he did not come out in
full endorsement' of the proposal.
