Arbuckle is accused of ' having fa

The case has occupied the court
for approximately three weeks. To

with final arguments, instructions to
the jury an-d Jury deliberation.
Gavin McNab, chief defense coun

continuation of his closing argument
He was followed by Milton U'Ren,
assistant district attorney, whose
summing' up lasted nearly an hour.
The court room was crowded tb.ru-
j out the day and the adjoining cor
ridors also tern an anxious, crusning
crowd that taxed the ability and good
nature of the augmented police guard.
Arbuckle appeared to show deep in-(

M"Nab attacked what he termed
the "imprisonment" of two prosecu
tion witnesses. Miss Zeh Prevost and
Miss Alice Blake, show girls, by the
district attorney "in order to coerce
them into giving testimony beneficial
to the prosecution's cause." He said
that the "forces of law and order
should not assume the leadership of
a mob or take its commands from

God, he has been told,- as Belshazzar

had not been answered adequately
by U'Ren. The prosecution reiterated
its hope for a speedy conviction.
"Watched Like Hawks"
Alternate Juror Hopkins said that
the jury had been watched closer
than any other in San Francisco for
twenty-five years. "They censored our

he said. "We each had a separate
