that Montgomery who is in Idaho had

admission ot Seymour's confession
will bo a bard fought question but as
Seymour openly derided Spanos
claims that be was starved Into mak
ing a confession, ho will bo forced
to base his denial ot tho confession
on other grounds.
The state claims to have a stronger
case against Seymour than It had
against Spanos. In addition Spanos
may bo called by tho prosecution as
ho bag been convicted. Whether, ho
will testify or not Is still a question
Seymour received tho word of
Spanos' conviction In tbo first de

It is known that Seymour has
considered basing his defenso upon
tbo theory that ho first struck De
daskalous only hard enough to knock
him senseless, toot meaning to klh
him, and that Spanos, In a murder
ous frenzy, finished him. Aa tho
law provides that a murdor, during
tho attempt to commit a folony, is

allow him to uso that plea.
