LA FOLLETTE HEARING
TO BE POSTPONED
Mrs. De Saulles, after running c
gauntlet of women who wanted to
kiss her and one of them did went
to her home, the Crossways, late to
night. She rode in the last of three
automobiles which conveyed ber per
sonal belongings an.t her relatives
from the jail. Mrs. De Saulles, bare
headed, sat beside the chauffeur, ap
parently in high glee.
The case of Mrs. Bianca De Saulles
Chilean beauty, charged with murder
ing her divorced husband, went to the
jury at 5:55 o'clock tonight.
Before Supreme Court Justice Mary,
ning started reading his instructions
to the jurors, all doors were locked.
The room was crowded. Mrs. De
Saulles, her chin cupped upon her
hand, leaned forward in Iier chair
eagerly listening to every word utter
ed by the judge.
Darkness fell and the court room
lights were snapped on as Judge Man
ning slowly and carefully read his ir
He advised the jury that they must
acquit if they had any reasonable
doubt of Mrs. De Saulles' "mental re
sponsibility" the night of August 3,
when she shot and killed John L. De
Saulles, wealthy club man, politician
and former Yale football star.
Referring to Mrs. De Saulles' own
testimony as "very dramatic and
graphic," Judge Manning warned the
jurors they must not be swayed by
sympathy for the 23 year old girl who
killed when the man she once loved
stood between here and her child."
Any one of the four verdicts could
be returned, Judge Manning declared.
They were first degree murder, not
guilty because insane, second degree
homicide and a flat acquittal.
