most prominent families, took the
witness stand today in his own de
fense for the murder Of Mrs. Thelma

clerk's desk to le sworn to “tell the
truth, the whole truth and nothing
but the truth” and then calmly ad
justed himself in the chair to tell of
the shooting which occurred at his
home in the fashionable residential
district on December 11.

tions with Mrs. Richardson and stout

improper between them until one
week after she was divorced from her
He said four months after their re
lations became intimate "she wanted
to know everything that I did and
everywhere that 1 went and would
seem always to find some one to tell
The witness said Mrs. Richardson
often became "enraged” at him and
slapped him and when asked why he
did not discharge her when he de
cided to “break with her,” he re
plied “If I hud done that I would
not be Hitting here."
