Breaking down under the bitter at teaks on her son, who has been term t an arch criminal and a youth of tous tendeances, who robbed and killed without regard for eense quaenses, Mrs. Marie RiCe. wite e Austin Rice, former jgilist and mother of John MeKda on t ral i Criminal Court for the yi1g of De testive Sergeant James Armstrong, hpaterically wept in t court room this morning. their closing argtbents to the .Assistant United Slates District vigorously denounced c *Mry as a crafty eriminal. who with deliberation and premeditation shot alt killed Detective Agustrong, after h had slain Walla"o , Muleare, the autome'Ale seesarioe dealer, on De ecmb. r 14 last, when 'the o cer at tempced to frustrate his escape at Union station. SeRUNUY gWO UNOVUD. puring the denunaistion, McHenry dipwed no emotion. He sat stoically nea his mother, hi. fand.partly oev t of the time with one or the - ot,)Ie hands. Two or three ti sinister smile spread over his Woea the prosecuting attorneys baaded him as a daring thief, and 04* *ho had feigned insanity to es odpa the gallows. McHenry will probably know his fate by tonight. It is expected that the prosecution wi close its argu ments to the Jury bt 3:30' o'clock this afternoon. McHenry manifests no concern in his fate. He seems net in the least dejected over the likelihood of the jury reaching a verdict of first degree murder, which will mean no other alternative than hanging on the Dis trict gallows. Should the youth be found guilty of second degree murder he will be given a sentence of life Imprisonment or one of not less than twenty years. STICK TO INSANITY DUEN5U. In defense of M Henry, Samuel Mo Comas Hawkins a d George S. Havell, who were appoint d by the court to defend the youth 1 slayer, argued that the evidence n testimony in trqduced on behalf of the defendant indicated that he w insane, that he had been abnorm since childhood. Attorney Havell ttacked the death pedelty asked b the prosecution, de claing that " ety can accomplish nothing by I icting the death pen alty on the y. who is of abnormal intellect." "The p ecution," declared Mr. HavelL. " asked for this boy's life blood; it nts to see his neck broken oS the strict gallows. This would net be or the public:goed." Aft telling the jury it must base its v ict da tho evidence surround ing tective Armstrong's death, and th it should be convidced beyond d t that McHenry planned and pre itated the slaying of Armstrong, fore bringing in a first degree ver ict. Attorney Hawkins said: "It would be judicial murder should the jury convict McHenry on evidence introduced by the prosecution other than the killing of Armstrong." PAST CRIMES DON'T COUNT. He pointed out that McHenry's past career of crime the slaying of Mul care and his other escapades, should net be considered by the jury in bringing in its verdict. He contended that McHenry did not plan the slay ing of Armstrong, that he shot the officer to protect himself from an at tack. Be denied McHenry shot Armstrong because of his fear of arrest. The lawyer went over the details I of testimony, given by the medical experts, who differed as to McHenry's mentality and sanity. He told of the circumstanoes of McHenry's birth, of the loneliness and fear of the boy's mother at night because of the ab sence of the father from home prior to the boy's birth. "This condition of the niother in it self was sufficient to have resulted in the birth of an abnormal child," said Attorney Hawken. "His antics and pranks as a child indicate his abnor mality." Melienrya fattier, who years ago was prominent in the pugilistic arena, has not been in Washington during the trial of his son. McHenry is one of the'many assumed names used-by .the youth during his alleged career qrime. His right name i.-George McienryU has been on trial nearly ghree weeks.

Md NuIty. former Washington policeman and ex-ceast guard. was indicte yes terday in the General 5essien Court of New York city. No is new held [i $10,000 boi and charged with big amy and perjury. McNulty was ar rooted in Baltimore recently upon the comnplaint of Frank I. Finkler, of Brooklyn and taken to New York for trial. McNulty was appointed to the po li.e force here on August 10, 1917, and attached to thte harbor preeinct. Much of hi stime was taken up while a policeman, in letcuring on life-save Ing methods before the children in the publjc schools. Hp had long experience in this wofk, and was in charge of the coast guard exhibit at the Safety First axpositlon at the National Museum in the spring of 1915. UNTERUD NAVY IN 1917. McNulty resigned from the police force on October $ 1917. to enter'the navy. after whtii he was engaged an secret service work in Brooklyn where he became acquainted with Miss Martha Ruth Finkler, nine teen years old, who was a member of the Woman's Motor Corps. Often he had to call on the corps to furnish him with cars to convey him on his missions. Miss Flakier often drove him out, and eventually McNulty became a frequent vistor at the residence of Miss Finkler's father. Frank I. Finkler, of Brooklyn, id a member of the New York law Arm of Finkler & McIntyre. McNulty's stories of the war, and how he wai one of the first fifty naval aviators sent to the North sea to com bat the U-boats, and his adventures while in command of the Gould yacht Niagara, on which young Jay Gould served under him, completely capti vated the girl, and they were Onaijy married on April 12. 1919. The young girl's father was not satisfied with the marriage, and on one of his trips to this city he took time to examine the record of the naval aviator, and found that Mc Nulty had already a wife and three children in Baltimore. The record showed that he had been married in 1911 to Miss Ruth Ennis. MARRIAGE ANNULLEZI. After this discovery, Mr. Finkler went to Philadelphia. where the couple were residing, and took his daughter back to her home in Brook lyn. He then set legal machinery in motion to bring McNulty to account for his alleged philandering. The petition for the annulment of the marriage of McNulty and Miss Fink ler was granted by Justice Whitaker. in the suprelse court, Manhattan, last Thursday. According to 'fose* 1. Ryttenberg, assistant district attorney of New York, the prisoner married his first wife in Crisfield, Md., on November 8. 1911. He had during his career been a manufacturers' agent. a car conductor, a sailor on the steamship Apache, as well as a Washington po liceman and life guard. Washington police. records show that McNulty was twenty-nine years old last May, and that he had a wife and three children at the time he was attached to the department here. He resided at 519 L street northwest. D. C. LEETER CARRIERS PMC AT CHESAPEAKE More Than 5,000 l'ak. Trains for Beach and Prograta of Sports.

These certificates will give in detail not only the ph'sical ratings of the babies, but their mental and tem peramental standing as well. CERTIFICATE FOR MACH BABY.

Children from. two to three years of age will be judged today. Two classes, will be on exhibition tomorrow-from three to four years and from four to ive. Saturday the winners in all classes will compete for the title of "Washington's Best Baby." The judges are Miss Ina C. Emery, a writer of text books on English; Mrs. F. A.
