Laska and James C. Mathers, attorneys charged with accepting part of the $200.000 Urschel kidnaping ransom as fees for defense of the kidnapers.  The prosecution was concluded with reading of letters which passed between Laska and Albert Bates, kidnaper now serving a life sentence for the abduction of Charles F. Urschel, Oklahoma City oil millionaire.  Claud Nowlen, defense attorney, gave notice that immediately after court convened for the afternoon seas.oil tie would ask for a directed ve i un t. ut acquittal.  was expected to testify for iu,„acU during the afternoon. It »us indicated he would build his ueien&e cm a state that Bates exchanged $25,000 of the ransom for other currency before he was arrested in Denver, and that it was this Other money that Laska received as a fee.  If this were true Mathers automatically would be exonerated, since the government’s allegation is that the money he received was from that Laska had. No witness testified to seeing Mathers receive any money at all.  U. S. Judge Edgar S. Vaught took cognisance of the passive part the Mathers attorneys have taken in the trial, when Claude Nowlin, chief counsel, rose to make a blanket objection.  “I see no reason for you to disturb your silence,” said the judge smiling.
