attorneys went before Judge Hough
In his chambers for argument on law
points and later it was announced
that the counts in the indictment re

$100,000 had been stricken out. The
defense contended that the National

no damage as a result of the transac

taken by Judge Hough. This charge
was regarded as the most important
in the government's allegation of mis.
appropriation against the prisoners.
Mr. Littlefield then began the clos

declaring that the defense contended
that no crime had been committed by
either defendant Mr. .Littlefield cau

err in charging the law the defense

should the jury err in its opinion the
