Would you let him | enter, or would you act first? 'Hie j - law of the West lias been one of quick I action.” Prosecution attorneys announced they were ready, but did not reveal j their plans for the trial. More than 200 witnesses have been 1 called, among them a memlier of Dr. Norris’ congregation, who was in the study when (fliipps appeared, and a hotel cleik and a telephone operator, | who are said to have overheard a j ; telephone conversation in which ; Chipps is alleged lo have threatened the pastor. . j “We don’t want a lawyer’s verdict.” .Moses declared today. “We don’t j want a technical verdict.

Meaeham and his administration in . Fort Worth. Chipps was a close friend of the mayor. Three bullets were fired into the lumberman s body. Dr. Norris has declared that Chipps : first threatened him over the tele phone arid when the lumberman ar rived at Iris office he believed he had come to kill him.
