Lawyer "Will Go on Stand at Los
Los Angeles, July 26. Clarence Darrow
personally will take the witness stand
in his own behalf Monday morning1. At
the request of Earl Rogers, bis chief
counsel, adjournment was taken this aft
ernoon until 10 o'clock Monday morn
ing because he did not want to begin
with Darrow's testimony in the halt day
Saturday session. Rogers said that 'the
direct examination of Darrow probably
would last for an entire day. Ho stated
at the same time that with the exception
cf Barrow's testimony there will remain
a few odds and ends to complete the de
fense, Lecompte Da!s, associate counsel In
the McNamara case, was subjected to a
grilling cross-examination by District At
torney Fredericks that lasted practically
all or to-day. Fredericks led the witness
to testify that up to the very day the
McKamaras pleaded guilty there was
doubt whether the terms of settlement
would be carried out, and that If they
bad not been, the defense would certainly
have proceeded with the trial. This ad
mission on the part of Davis is lmpor
tant to the prosecution as an attack on
the defense's theory of lack of motive.
T.hlch rests on the claim that the set
tlement was practically effected before
the arrest of Franklin.
