The controversy which led to the
physical encounter between the two
lawyers, frrew out of the cross-examination
of William H. Manogue by
Attorney Sullivan. Manosue was a
witness for the Government, and was
represented by Attorney Glassle.
while Attorney Sullivan appeared for
the property owners.
The following- excerpt from the
stenographic report of the proceed

"One moment. I object to you stat
ing to what these people thought or
said. I have put a question that you
said that you wanted to answer, and
that question Is whether you knew
that the American Security and Trust
Company threatened to sell out the
property. That Is the question.

that they threatened"
Mr. Sullivan I am not assum

Mr. Glassle "Here he is reading
out a bill, and he wants to know
about these facts. I submit he can
not ask about that fact and then
cjose up the witness and say 'you
cannot tell that' He cannot make it
appear that this property was thrown
upon the market at a sacrifice when
the witness knows to the contrary
and is telling the commission that
the company did not do anything for
two or three years, and that he knows
till about the condition of that oN
loan carried on there for years and
years by the original parties. He has
to take his medicine when he asks
about those facts, and this witness
has a right to go on, whether Mr.
Sullivan likes it or does not like it.

Mr. Glassle: "Let him say that he
did not intend to say that I was

has practiced law too long not to
know the import of counsel's lan
guage. Your honor knows that when
engaged in the trial of a case if I
had insinuated to you that you were
prompting a witness, telling him what
to suy, you would resent it as an
imputation of subornation of perjury,
and that Is exactly what it is, and it
cannot be anything else. When you
say to counsel that he is telling a
witness what to say that means that
the witness is to say it whether true
or false, and It is an Imputation not
only of unprofessional conduct but
of the commission of a felony, and
I cannot submit to it"

Mr. Sullivan: "If the commission

it necessary to have suggested tie

who knows and understands the Kng

heard in court time after time, and
I say again that the remark of Mr.
Glassle was In effect calling the at

which would assist him in answering
the question, and nobody who desires

TWO FLYERS HURT
The French people never nsed
to whistle. They apparently
didn't know what tuneful
melodies could be produced
with two puckered lips.
Then tho Yanks come, and
they all whistled. Pretty soon
some Dough boys taught a
little "Garcon" HOW and ho
showed the rest of the kids,
then the men caught on and
now all of Franco Is whistl
ing because the Yanks do.
Gee, what a mingling of
French and American habits
and customs this wax is go

France is a marvelous nation.
They have many things we
can do well to adopt and we
can. no doubt, furnish them
with an equal number of
ideals to their good.
And, what is true of France
is also true of England,
Italy and all our other Allies.
