Dr. "scar Heller of Greenfield, who treated hath Frank Carl nnd fils father Alonzo before their deaths, testified that when he xvas called to the Car! home July 2“, 1921, Frank told him he had become 111 on the road, and came home for that reason. He declared Carl died from na tural causes. The doctor said Carl complained of being sick at the stomach nnd had heart trouble. The doctor said examination showed Carl hud organic heart trouble. He testified that each visit he made to the Carl home was made on tho request of the defendant. lb- testified that Alonzo Carl. Frank Carl's f-.flier, on May 7 ami *-. 1921, xx-as a weak old man.

They are coming for the .TOO mile race at the Indianapolis motor Speedway which carries a thrill no other track in the country can supply. Other tracks are faster, on other track records are lower, and other tracks are far more scientifically constructed. And right here is the solution of the question as to what it Is that brings the biggest crowd known to motor racing the world over to see the ftecoration day race here. It Is the very imperfections of the track. Built as it was in the early days of automobile tracks designing. It was modeled approximately on the only race STATE HEADS PASS BUCK ON DRY JOB GOODLAND, Ind., May 29. —Certain State and Federal officials are playing the great American game of “passing the buck” at the expense of the good ladies of the W. C. T. U. and other friends of prohibition in New ton County, in the southern part of which this town is situated. Recently one Harry Drake of Kentland, near here, known in the neigh borhood as “China” Drake, was named Federal prohibition enforcement of ficer for a large section of the northern part of the State. Friends of pro hibition became very much alarmed. They declared that Drake was known as the town sport and that his heart could not be in the enforcement of prohibition. Then it was that the game of passing the buck as to the responsibility for Drake’s appointment started. GARDEN POINT MAY BE MADE TO CLOSE UP Prosecutor Evans Con siders Abatement Proceedings. Abatement proceeding)! to close Garden Point, a resort at Broad Ripple, as a public nuisance uro expected to be filed soon by Prosecutor William B. Evans.

An automobile In which they were driving was confiscated. As the aheriff ami his party entered the resort, txvo men and a woman ran from th*' place, dropping a bottle of white mule as they xxent. No ether whisky xvus found, but a large number of empty whisky bottles were strewn en the ground outside. Sheriff Snider said there was no evidence that xvas being Bold In the place, but t her- was evidence of it being brought In. I Dr. Heller stated b was at Carl's 1 bedside at the time of his death. Ho stilted Carl “died in a struggle.” Evidence of Dr. Ileller showed Mrs. Carl xxas attentive to her husband, and carried out the doctor's instructions re garding his diet. Tin* doctor stated he never snxv any symptoms of arsenic poisoning exhibited by Frank earl while he treated him. The defense introduced its first charac ter witness In behalf of Mrs, Carl, xvhon Mrs. Nellie Vice of Bhiladolphla. a neigh bor of the Carls, testified the reputation of tho defendant for peace and quiet up to August, 1921, xvas good. Sho testified that txvo weeks before Frank Carl's death Carl t*dd her te came home from a tusim-ss trip “feeling sb‘k.” anil that he n'xvay i had stomach trouble nnd heartburn. Thomas Vice gave testi mony similar to that of his xvife. Additional evidence tending to show Frank * ari told several of Ids neighbors some time before his death that he be came 111 on the road when attending to Ids 1 uth-s as a traveling man. xvas given by Mrs. Henry Wigging of Greenfield. Dr Heller testified that xvnen he told Mrs. Carl, txvo days before her hus band's death he would never recover, ho “didn't notice anything unusual” In her attitude or appearance. On cross examination of Pr. Heller It developed the doctor last treated Alonzo Carl on May 2 and Alonzo died on June fi, 1921. lie admitted ho didn't know any of Alonzo Carl's symptoms just prior to his death, as lie didn't treat hiui. The theory of the defense appears to be that Mrs. Carl was not responsible for the arsenie discovered by expert chemists In the vital organs of Frank Carl. During the lengthy cross-examina tion of the witnesses for the State, . counsel for the defense have worked on tho theory that if arsenic wns discovered : (Continued on I'age Txvo.) i course America knew, the county fair race track with its long straightaways and relatively sharp turns, in the light of modern engineering the track Is a joke and the “saucer tracks" of re.-eiu years permit much greater speed.
