COUNSEL FOR RICHES0N
ANOTHER GAVE POISON
Boston, Mass., Nov. 4. That some
other man than his client gave Avis
Linell the poison from which she
died was the assertion of John L.
Lee'of Lynchburg. Va., senior coun
sel for Rev. Clarence V. T. Riche-'
son, who is charged with murder.
"Mr. Rlcheson is innocent," Mr. Lee
said. "Of that I am convinced. My
talks with him, my own observation
of the ;;sf and r.;y conferences with,
counsel have opened up a way by i
which I shall eventually free him. 'j
The first authentic protestation ofj
Rev. Mr. Richt-son's innocence of the
murder of Mi?s Linnell was made
public yt-sterday when the text of his

ith a team of 3 perfect-score cars,
Maxwell is the only one of 74 com
petitors to finish the gruelling 1454
mile journey without a single penalty.

October 14th, finished their

Awarded The Glidden Trophy
Of 74 of America's leading cars,
some costing $5,000 each, which com
peted in the most gruelling contest in
.motor car history, the Maxwell came
'through as the
Only Team with Perfect Score
Whirling over the smooth roads at
railroad speed, plowing through mud
and sand, fording swollen streams,
pounding over the Appalachian Moun
tains through a cloudburst, and sur
mounting obstacles that no ordinary
tourist would ever meet, they led the
way into each control with time table
precision and justly earned the title of
A. A. A. National Touring Champion
They completed their daily journey
on the exact schedule, although several
times the committee conducting the
event had to extend the fixed schedule
time to offset unexpectedly difficult
conditions met with. The Maxwells
never needed these extensions.
Besides the great victory of the Maxwell
team, another Maxwell entered by Gov. Hoke
Smith, of Georgia, won the Anderson Trophy
for the best individual showing. There were
no other trophies to win.
The Maxwell victory is made more
remarkable by the fact that it

This undisputable evidence of relia
bility of Maxwell cars is no surprise to
