Ward Tells of Dinner.
When Ward took the stand ho told
of a dinner at the Do Saulles' home,
"The Box," near Westbury, Long Isl
and, on the evening of the tragedy.
As Mrs. de Saulles entered the liv
ing room of the home, a few minutes
before, the shooting, Ward testified, De
Saulles arose from a couch and ex-,
tended his hand, greeted her with the;
words, "How are you, Blanqulta?"
This was a nickname De Saulles fre
quently used in addressing his wife.
Other questions brought from Ward
admissions that Mrs. De Saulles made
inquiry immediately after entering the
room for little Jack, her son,
Contention Over Boy.
She said she had come to take the
boy with her. Ward testified. A con
versation ensued, the witness said, in
which both parties contended they
were legally entitled to custody of the
boy during August. Ward said he
heard De Saulles make positive
I refusals to yield custody of the young-1
ster. whereupon, he declared Mrs. de :

Sees Flash of Shots.
"Then I saw the flash of the shots
from Mrs. de Saulles' revolver," saia
"What did you do?" he was asked.
"As soon as I could collect myself I
rushed over to Mrs. de Saulles and
grasped her arm," he answered.
"What did she say?" was the next
"She said, 'It had to be done,'" re
Sister Gives Testimony
Mrs. Carolina Degener, a sister of
John L. de Saulles, who was at her
brother's home when the shooting oc
curred, testified that Mrs. de Saulles
said she wished to speak with her
husband when she entered the home.
"I was coming down tho stairs with
little Jack who was going to say good
night to his father and grandfather,"

said Mrs. Degener. "I was four steps
from the bottom when Mrs. de Saullee
entered. Wo spoke to each other and
she said she wished to talk to her hus
band," This was in contradiction with the
testimony of other witnesses who de
clared tho defendant's first inquiry on
entering the home was about her son.

mer husband had died.
Major Arthur B. de Saulles of South
Bethlehem, Pa., father of the dead
man, testified that Mrs. de Saulles
said "then take that!" as she flred the
revolver shots. A controversy over
possession of the boy had immediately
preceded this remark, ho said. This
terminated when de Saulles turned
away from her saying It was "no use
to discuss tho matter any further."
Sheriff Seaman Testifies
Sheriff Seaman testified Uiat ho re
ceived a note from the Jail physician
tho morning after the shooting advis
ing him not to confine Mrs. de Saulles
in a cell "because of her extreme ner
vousness." "Since she has been in jail, has Mrs.
de Saulles ever asked for her boy,"
"Many .times," roplled Seaman. The
witness said Mrs. do Saulles was
"very pale" after the shooting. He
added that her calmness In consider

A jail phyisiclan's statement that It
would be unwise to confine Mrs.
Bianca de Saulles in a cell becauso of

by county officers that her conduct
was unusual after the tragedy wore
features of the testimony at this morn
ing's session of her trial here on a
charge of murdering her divorced hus
band, John L. de Saulles, clubman and
Yale athlete, on tho night of August 3.
This testimony was regarded at yes
terday's defense as strong substantia
tion of their claim that Mrs. de Saulles
was mentally irresponsible at the time
of the shooting, which resulted from

The prosecution intends to show by

of the tragedy.
Attorney Outlines Defense
In outlining the case for the de
fense, Attorney Henry A. Uterhart
said that "the unwritten law" would
not be invoked but that it would be
shown that Mrs. de Saulles was men
tally unaccountable when tho shooting
The attorney then sketched Mrs. de
Saulles' life from the time of her birth
in Santiago, Chile, twenty-three years
ago, until she made do Saulles ac
quaintance in that country In Febru
ary. 1911. With greater detail. Mr.
Uterhart then told of his client's mar
riage to de Saulles In Paris the samo
year and of their troubled domestic re
lations which terminated in the wife
securing a divorce In 1916.
During this recitation frequent ref
erences were made by Uterhart to the
de Saulles' so-called "Broadway life."
He said records of his client's divorce
proceedings would show that de Saul
les had "entertained" Miss Jean Saw
yer, a dancer, In an apartment In New
York throughout one winter.
Other instances of de Saulles' al-l
leged InGdenity were related.
Mrs. de Saulles sat unperturbed
throughout this recital. Her head was
bowed forward, her gaze steadily fixed
on the table at which she was seated.

BRITISH ARMY HEADQUARTERS
IN FRANCE, Thursday, Nov. 22. (By
the Associated Press) Tho impres
sion which existed In the minds of
many soldiers that the British tanka
were freaks of little value as Instru
ments of war Is being wiped out on
account of the achievements of the
great army of those mighty engines
which on Tuesday morning broke
through the main Hindenburg line and
carried the war miles into enemy ter
ritory. Tho work which the tanks did
on that first day and have been doing
even since is one of the most striking
features of the war. It cannot be said
they are alone responsible for the tre
mendous victories "won by the British,
for infantry, artillery and cavalry all
have played their part. Nevertheless,
the tanks drove tho entering wedge
without which this triumph probably
would have beon impossible.
In a few hours they shook to shreds
lines of barbed wire, the demolition
of which by a concentration of artil
lery would have required many days
Furthermore, their employment made
possible the arrangement of the secret
attack which would have been out of
the question had tho artillery been
brought into play.
