Former Supreme Court Judge of
Oklahoma Kills U. S. Airman
Ay o m
un P. Day.
The code of-honor which should protect a woman from the amorous
advances of her husband's friend was invoked by Judge Jean P. Day, one
of the foremost lawyers and oil operators of Oklahoma and former supreme
court justice, when he killed Lieut Col. Paul W. Beck, assistant com
mandant of Post field, the aviation center of Fort Sill Day, according to
dispatches, killed Beck in his home when he found Mrs. Day struggling
in the army officer's arms.

"Whether or not Beck was shot
from the front or back." added the
county attorney, "i " oie of .. the,
greatest questions involved in this
case. .The position of the -lead in
the head of Taul Beck, as shown
by an x-ray photograph would tend
to indicate that Beck was not looking
at Judge Day -at the same time of
the' firing of the fatal shot.
"Judge Day. asserts he fired in self
defense. My judgment is, if the
shot , was fired in self-defense it was
in defense of home, and not of his
Mr. and. Mrs.. L. II. Trie-hard and
Mr. and Mrs. I'aul Anderson, prom
inent jn local society circles, who
were present at the party at the Day
home, were questioned at a special
court, of inquiry held in the office of
W. R. Withington, county evidence
attorney, today. Frichard made a
sworn statement at the inquiry, ac- j
cording to Wellington, that .there
was no trouble during the night and
that when they left "everything was
agreeable and pleasant." Anderson
It 'was brought out at the inquiry
for the first time that Day took the
Andersoris home first in his motor
car and then i before' dropping . the
Prichard's at their door, returned to
the Day home. This, accbfding, to
Withington, was related , by Pilch
ard ' ' -V .''.'-. '
Mai. R. B. Paddock, who was the
guest of IVichards, said he wanted
to' see, Lieut. Col. Beck about the re
turn, trip to Fort Sill the following
day. according to Trichard's testi
mony.' Day then drove the Prich

Judgeship Bill Is
Passed by Senate

pered about that Senator Shields was
fearful of the prospective appoint
ment of a powerful republican if the
judgeship was created. '
Senator Frehnghuysen, New er-
sey, republican, had a dimcult time
putting over a new judge for his
state. He thought he had the new
judgeship safely tucked away and
left Washington. Later in the day
Senator King, Utah, democrat,
moved to strike the New Tersev
judgeship out of the bill. The mo
Frelinghuysen's friends rallied
from their stupor a few minutes later
and moved to reconsider the vote on
King's motion. The reconsideration
motion was carried and a few miiutes
ater the New Jersey judgeship was
put back in the bill.
Almost Goes Astray.
The badly needed new judgeship
in New Mexico almost went astray.
Senator iJtirsum. New Mexico, re
publican, offered the amendment for
the new judgeship and the vice presi
dent announced a tie vote, 32 to 32,
JJursum promptly demanded a re
count. While the recount was be
ing made he hurried to the rear of
the chamber and held a quick con
sultation with Senator Dial, who had
voted against the amendment. Dial
arose and changed his vote, making
the tally to Jl.
Senator Cummins, Iowa, republi
can, raised a point of order against
the proceeding and Vice President
Coolidge sustained it. It was note
worthy that a moment later. Dial of
fered an amendment for an addition
al judgeship in South Carolina, and
tfursum supported it. The Dial
amendment was rejected.
Bursum made another trv for a
judgeship in New Mexico and suc

Cat Jumps ISO Feet
Into Niagara Gorge
Niagara Falls, N. Y., April 7.
"Nig," a pet cat of customs and
immigration officials at the Amer
ican end of the lower steel arch
bridge, jumped ISO feet into the
gorge last night when chased by
a dog and turned up today a little
ruffled of fur, but otherwise little
worse for the adventure.
After the cat plunged into the
gorge, men employed on the bridge
saw her crawl about on the rocks
below and try to climb up the steel
beams of the arch. Efforts to
rescue her failed, but today she
appeared, dragging herself up the
edge, of the precipice near the

"To think that a woman who
didn't even know her would extend
an invitation like that; it is wonder
ful." .. Mrs. TitrnW said her mother
couldn't accept the offer, however.
At least not yet. For she already
has accepted an invitation to spend
the summer in a big house on Long
Island where all the old friends Rose
Coghlan thought had forgotten her

plans to go next week. v
One of the letters Miss Coghlan
received yesterday contained a $100
check from David Bclasco, producer
of "Deberan." the last play in which
she appeared. .Another brought $2-5
from Carl Hunt, an old friend.

Alameda, Cal., April 7j Rose
Coghlan, adored comedy star of two
decades ago, who feared that "no
body in the world wants me" be
cause of the tragic role of penury
that fate recently has cast for her,
may know now that there is a home
where she is wanted, and wanted
eagerly, in this city on the east
shore of San Francisco bay.
This was the message that Ms.
Tom Dolphin, 2124 Clement avenue,
Alameda, would have sent to Miss
Coghlan today, but, uninformed of
the actress' address in New York
City, she appealed to the Associated
Press, whose wires this morning car
ried the story of Miss Coghlan's
"Please tell Miss Coghlan that she
is wanted right here," said Mrs. Dol
phin. "There is a big home here to
which she is welcome, and a car we'd
like to take her riding in; and she
needn't sell her costumes nor bother
about getting new clothes. We
want her to come right away."
Mrs. Dolphin's husband, manager
of an automobile repair agency,
heartily concurred in his wife's re
quest. Neither Mrs. Dolphin, her husband
nor her mother, who compose the
household, ever saw Miss Coghlan
