as the result of a blow by Bouline according to Assistant County Attorney Murray Finley banged hit kicked or jumped on the body inflicting the multiple skull fractures found later by 4 doctors How else did Hayseths body get moved from one side of the loading platform to the other asked the attorney How did Hay seths clothes get wet unless he was dragged or bumped through the ng treated for polio the water tinued Testimony Same Reuben Olson Hayseths com panion when they encountered Bouline in the alley and Gay lord True 16 who happened through the alley a moment later Finley pointed out both testified definitely that Hayseth fell back of the SnoWhite market and east of the loading platform back of the Ward furniture store The officers who were called to the scene later all agree he con tinued that when they arrived the body of Hayseth was on the west side of the loading platform some 15 or 20 feet from where Olson and True located it Theyre desperate and they want you to guess and base a ver clared Defense Attorney M L DAYS LEFT Mason in attacking Finleys argu ment If someone beat dragged jumped on or moved Hayseth in the alley he asked why were not the victims clothes brought in to show their condition Why was there no evidence as to the dirt debris or bruises on the back of his head True was mistaken about the type and color of Boulines shirt Mason pointed out and could also have been mistaken about the location of the body Olson was so drunk that the officer said he mumbled when he came for help the attorney continued so his testimony was questionable Turning to the defendants timony Mason noted that Bouline admitted having 8 or 9 bottles of beer during the evening and a tavern owner put the number at 11 or 12 Is not Boulines testi mony the more obviously true he asked since he admits that half intoxicated and in a dark alley he does not remember exact distances He also attacked Olsons testi mony that the only blow struck one by Bouline which felled Hayseth Officer A N Michaels admitted seeing Bou lines cut chin he said and Mrs Bouline testified that as soon as he came home after giving bail he told her of having lost a tooth and showed her which one and also the cuts and bruises on his chin knee and elbow County Attorney James R Brown replied that there could be no doubt that Bouline inflicted the terrific injuries which caused multiple fractures of Hayseths skull and that they were inflicted after Olson and True left the scene Claims Body Is Moved The blood spots on the alley paving the puddle and Hayseths wet clothing proved that the body was moved Brown declared The victims clothing was not brought m he explained because there was plenty of evidence as to its condi tion It is evident that Boulines story was not true he charged because that story was changed after he was questioned by the sheriff and his deputy the morning after the fight At that time he told the officers Brown said that there was no argument and that he could not remember anyone hitting him Referring to testimony by Br A B Phillips R D Robbins F f TirtO i ff TT l li Huntles that Boulines President Chiang KaiShek Friday night extended martial
