A day filled with interesting episodes reached an exciting climax in tho Bal-linger-Pinchot investigation late today, when Assistant Attorney General Oscar Lawler, author of tho famous Lawler memorandum, arose wrathfully from tho witness stand and accused Attorney Brandeis of uttering a deliberate un truth. Then, after he had been rebuked by several members of tho committee, Mr. Lawler withdrew his remarks and apol ogized to the committee. Mr. Layler was called to the stand by the "defense" to explain the cir cumstances under which he had pre pared for tho president a memorandum containing his bpinion on the charges filed by Special Agent GLivis against Secretary Ballinger. Several hours had been consumea in tho examination of .Frederick M.

The committee declined Mr. Brandeis' request to have made a part of the record the statement issu'ed from the White- Houso last 'Sunday denying that there was any foundation for the Ker by statement. Senator Root charged that Mr. Brandeis' whole llno.of inquiry was a covert attempt to drag the pres ident into the investigation, to which Mr. Brandeis replied it was material to the investigation, as tending to show that the president's letter exonerating Ballinger was prepared in such haste that it was "Not judicial in its na ture but was extremely partisan."
