Defense Due to finish
Sanity Question Today
In Lonely Hearts Case
By th« Associated Pre»»
NEW YORK, Aug. 4.—The de
fense lawyer at the "lonely hArts”
murder trial hopes to wind up
today his hours-long question
about the sanity of Martha Beck.
Defense Counsel Herbert E. Ro
senberg developed a stiff neck and
sore tonsils yesterday before he
had completed reading from the
testimony to frame his hypotheti
cal question.
Dr. Richard H. Hoffman, de
fense psychiatrist, was called back
to the witness stand today to hear
more of the same.
By reading from the 29-year-old
Mrs. Beck’s testimony about sor
did episodes and heartbreaks in
her life, Mr. Rosenberg hopes to
prove she was insane when Mrs.
Janet Fav, 66-year-old Albany
widow, was slain last January 4.
Much of Mrs. Beck's testimony
concerned abnormal sex relations
with her co-defendant, Raymond
Fernandez, 34.
The defense contends Fernan
dez had no part in the bludgeon
ing and strangulation of Mrs.
Fay, which* allegedly grew from
a scheme to swindle lonely women
through mail romances.
Mr. Rosenberg went over the
testimony for three and a half
hours for Dr. Hoffman yesterday.
When court adjourned he still
was not through the 750 pages
of Mrs. Beck's testimony, plus 59
pages of statements she made.

For 'Nap' Improving
OMAHA, Aug. 4.—Sandy-haired

gained steadily today in his fight
aaginst the effects of a staggering
dose of sleeping pills.
Hospital attendants reported his
condition "generally improved”
but were not ready to say he is
out of danger.
The boy is believed to have taken
23 pills and capsules of a bar
biturate-type drug, enough to put
23 normal adults to sleep, while
his mother was out shopping. She
had told him to take a "nap” while
she was gone.
After 36 hours unconsciousness,
he awakened yesterday yelling
“Ouch” when a nurse stuck a
needle in his arm. Since then he
has been awake at intervals, taken
a little nourishment and been up
in a wheel chair. '
The medicine had been used by
Trevis> father, who was fatally
hurt in a truck accident five weeks
ago.
