Since that hour all Oklahoma has taken sides in the case. Day's story is an old-age tale, a story of mis placed trust. Day, it was believed, will not change his story before the inquesw. He will insist that he found Beck at tacking his wife and that Beck was killed by accident when Day dealt him a blow over the head with the revolver. It is to refute this story that the airmen who served under Beck's comman& at Fort Sill aviation field have come to the inquest. Headed by Beck's Son. They are headea by Beck's son and by his nephew, Liest. John W. Beck, whose father-Colonel Beck's brother -was slain under mysterious cir cumstances years ago. One of thp largest oraw,ls ever at tending a court inquiry here is ex pected to seek admittance to the in quest room. Twelve witnesses have been called. Day himself will testify. His wife will tell events preceding the tragedy. She will ay, however, that from the moment she saw her husband, revolver in hand. her mind is a blank as to the actual shooting of the ariman. Mrs. Rachel Beck, seventy-seven year-old mother of the slain man, arrived here. for a last view of her son's body this mornung. She was accompanied by the wives of army officers from Fort 'Sill. "It isn't true-it can't he true," Mrs. Beck said, crying softly. "My boy could not do the things they say." The airman's mother is a tragic figure. Life One of Tragedy. A pioneer of the early West-an army man's wife in the Distant Indian fighting days of Oklahoma, Mrs. Beck settled at Fort Sill. Her husband died. Then she wed Brig. Gen. WillIam Beck. "They have told me what is being said of my boy,"- Mrs. Beck said. "They tried to keep it from me, but some day I would hear and It might not he from the lips of those who loved me. "1 will be brave under the cross. for my boy would want me to be' brave. "I must cry a little, but I'll try oh, I'll try so hard to be just the I kind of a mother he would want meI to be," and the little gray-haired woman forced- a wan smile through the big tears which filled her eyes. 1 Leave Sunday for D. C. Mrs. Beck is going to accompany her son's body to Washington on Sunday. She will see it placed be side the grave of his father in Ar lington Cemetery. Mrs. Bec!. will not attend the in quest. *It was expected, even by Prosecu tor Forest L. Hughes, that the jury would return a verdict urging that prosecution against Judge Day be dropped. Behind closed doors and acting en the order of Judge James I. Shelpe, of the district court, detectives from the office of Forest Hughes, pros ecuting attorney, sought today to secure from four persons an admis sion of a violent quarrel between Judge Day and hIs wife. The quarrel, one of the detectives said, was reported to have occurred in hour before Judge Day killed Lieutenant Colonel Beck. The de tective declared reports reac'hing him from "sources that look mighty good", told of Judge Day upbraldlng his wife for her attentiois to Beck. Tee Attentive To Reck-. Mr. and Mrs. Paul H.

By &nat mwa 1n ews Serviie. The nuns of Japan have become infected with the doctrino of equal rights for women. Headed by 2,000 nuns of the Jodo shu, or "Pum Land Boot." he re ligious women of the Buddhist faith throughout Japan have launched a campaign for similar treatment to that acorded to monks of the faith. with some additions on account of their sex. During the present month at the gathering of the Jod-ehu. In Osaka and Kyoto, according 'to advices just received from Toklo, the nuns will formally present their demands.' Foremost among those is their ples to be allowed to perjnlt their hair to grow instead of shaving the head, as is now demanded by the ritual. Throughout Japan Buddhist nuns are obligated to shave the head, to abstain from eating meat and to remain unmarried. Similar oblga tions were formerly requisite for monks, but of late years they have been disregarded. "We are only human beings, and we experience the same feelings and emotions as other persons," says a memorial from the Jodo-shu women. "Why should we be forced to give up our hair and be absorbed into the spiritual world, while the men priests are allowed to marry and eat meat and while other women enjoy matri mony?" Leos than a year ago the nuns voiced their dissatisfaction with their lot and demanded reforms, but they were silenced, mainly because of their lack of organization, they assert. Now that the movement has spread to other sects of the Buddhist faith, and the fighting spirit of the women has become thoroughly aroused, they believe their attempts will be more successful. Many other discriminations In favor of male members of the faith are charged by the women. They contend that the general tendency teregard nuns as Inferior to monks is unfair inasmuch as all are In the service of Lord Buddha. Nuna. they aert. are not allowed to officiate at funerals. are forbidden to sit in the main part of the temple during Buddhist ceremonies and, in short, have been reduced to serving mer-ly as messengers or flunkies for the priests. Officials of the churen and of -he government are inclined tr blame the priests themselves for the wave of "new thought" which apparently is sweeping over the nunneries of Japan. Duribg the past four or five years the priests have been engaged in a campaign for manhood suffrage through the religious organisations. maid Judge Jean P.
