Tho prosecution placed Mr. Rumsey
on tho stand, the witness testifying to
tho sdtcvf alcohol to parties other than
physicians during tho time stated in
tho complaint. A record of alcohol sold
had been k'opt up to June 14 but since
that time, none hadueen "kept, ,1'he

who would command respect and exert
