Zenge Charged
With.Murder Of
Dro WJ Bauer
Theory Of Defense Based
On Subtle Arguments Of
Leopold-LoebCase
CHICAGO, Oct. 9. - () - Mande-
ville W. Zenge, iron-willed Canton,
Mo., carpenter, was called to trial to-
day charged with the mutilation slay-
ing of Dr. Walter J. Bauer, whose
widow once was Zenge's sweetheart.
The trial before Judge Cornelius
J. "Harrington promised struggles
over the 26-year-old defendant's
guilt or innocence and over his re-
puted insanity.
Arrested in Chicago, scene of the
crime, after leaving a hoax suicide
note, Zenge maintained his innocence
through several days and nights of
police interrogation.
The theory of the defense, set forth
in filed petitions, recalled the intri-
cate and subtle arguments employed
in the famous Leopold-Loeb case and
the legal and psychiatric battles over
Walter Krauser and Russell Scott,
slayers of 1925.
Criminal court history was expect-
ed to repeat itself in a fight over the
question of the "irresistible impulse"
or "temporary insanity" as a defense
In capital crime.
The state specifically charged the
tall, taciturn Zenge with the murder
of Dr. Bauer, professor of chemistry
at a Kirksville, Mo., college.
Dr. Harry Hoffman, head of the
Cook county behavor clinic, declared
the young prisoner sane, but Zenge's
attorneys were prepared, they said,
to show he was crazed by loss of his
sweetheart, when she became Mrs.
Bauer.
Assistant State's Attorneys Charles
Dougherty and Mal Coghlin said they
would demand the death penalty.
Bauer's widow will testify for the
state, Dougherty said. The prosecut-
or estimated the trial would require
two weeks.
Yoakum Speaks
To Students At
First Luncheon,
Plans For Expenditure Of
Rackham Fund Subject
Of Discussion
Dean Yoakum of the Graduate
School opened the first luncheon held
by its students in the Russian Tea
Room at the League yesterday. A
large crowd of about fifty students
were present as the general topic of
discussion was the proposed expendi-
ture of the newly acquired Rackham
fund.
No definite plans for spending the
money have been approved, but it is
believed that about $1,000,000 will go
for the construction of the new build-
ing. The income from the remain-
ing $4,000,000 will be used as an avail-
able fund for fellowships to deserving
students for research work in various
fields.
No one will be able to estimate the
benefit that the community and the
country at large will receive from
future research work.
Several plans have been submitted
for the building, but none have as
yet been approved. However it is
expected to contain an auditorium
larger than the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre and smaller than Hill Audi-

torium. The second floor is expected
to have little kitchenettes and small
sitting rooms around which it is
hoped that much of the social life oft
the graduate students will evolve. s

By ARTHUR A. MILLER
It was an uncomfortable James
Stephens who sat in a corner of the
Hopwood Room after his lecture
We'dnesday night, despite the fact
that just a few minutes before he
was quite the master of his audience
which heard him in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theater.
And he had a right to be uncom-
fortable, he intimated, because the
people in the Hopwood Room were
well-wishers and self-styled connoi-
seurs of poets and like their con-
temporaries in other lands they man-
aged to ask a man questions about
things of which he knew nothing.
But one question at least, suc-
ceeded in evoking a little more than
the minimum of interest in the har-
rassed guest.
Had he ever been in Aran? No,
not Erin. And he alone among the
company voiced an interest and not a
smile. The answer required no repe-
tition of his biography and the little
man embarked on an imaginary boat
to the Islands of Aran which he had
visited years before.
People Hunt Sharks
"It's just a bleak rock with holes,
that's all. And it lies about 15 miles
off the Irish coast."
"And you know they hunt the
shark. It's#just in small corroughs
that they do it. Just tiny boats in
a roaring surf. But the people of
Aran are reduced to the bones of the
earth. It's the simplest life they
lead."
And their culture? Do they have
firearms or other modern accessories?
"Firearms! What would they be need-
ing firearms for? They've only got
a few rabbits running around the
islands and those they catch with
traps.
"The best weapon they have is the
harpoon and that they use for hunt-
ing the shark. They use its oil for
their lamps, you see.
"It's a lonely place. Only a small
steamer stopping at one of the islands
once in a while."
And he went on while the people in
the book, smoke, hat and coat-laden
Hopwood room formulated questions
and waited to be introduced.
About his Nationalistic affiliations
and their relations to his poetry he
remarked significantly, "Ireland is a
very small country. Poets don't worry

about current affairs. In Ireland you
don't go about looking for a move-
ment to join. They lay it right on
your doorstep and that's all there is to
it."
Normally reticent, Stephens needed
only little prodding to continue when
he was speaking of things he knew.
He spoke of England and Ireland
and the theater. And he was enthu-
siastic about the performances of
Elizabeth Bergner. "She's worth look-
ing at," he said. He shifted a little
in his chair as he remarked that he
"sort of side-steps celebrities." Yet
he recounted his friendship with
James Joyce and with another of
whom not as many had heard, Robert
Flaherty, the director of the filming
of the drama on the Island of Aran.
Women Comely
"Comely is a word which is hardly
used any more. But the women of
Aran are that. They are truly very
comely, and - well, simple and sin-
cere. The cinema which shows their
life, "Man of Aran," is a remarkable
piece of work. It is life itself. And
not only is it so real and true but it
is done with the best sea photography
I've ever seen.
"But the only thing I couldn't stand
was the suspense. You know any
kind of long torment is torment for
my soul."
And this, it could easily be noted,
was one of the few times the short
Irishman dropped his complacent at-
titude and allowed his imagination to
drift to places which were better
suited for it.
But another of these rare moments
was the time of his departure when
he rose from his seat, resumed the
hand-shaking business for a minute,
turned his face again to the con-
versing group, and let his tired head
consider the virtues of good Irish
sleep.
