)sborne Trial
Will Continue
Today In Court
Defendant Claims Bluff
Only Motive In Facing
Brother With Weapon
Cross-examination of Beecher Os-
borne, 21-year-old Chelsea farmhand
who is charged with first degree
murder for the fatal stabbing of his
brother, Price, will continue in Cir-
cuit Court this morning, according
to Prosecutor George Meadei
Osborne testified for nearly four
hours yesterday. He related the events
which led up to the slaying of his
brother and told the jury that he
held the knife which caused the
fatal blow. He said that he was bluff-
ing with the weapon, attempting to
scare off the attacking Price, when
the killing occurred. a
Under cross-examination, Osborne
did not alter his confession mater-
ially. He did admit that his dead
brother had assailed Murrel, his 22-
year old wife, in vile language, but
said the remarks were directed to
him, not to his wife.
Mrs. Osborne wept through most
of the testimony.
Osborne's defense is based on a
plea of self-defense. He claims that
he had no way of protecting himself
from the 185-pound Price, who was
an amateur fighter, and said that
he instinctively drew the knife after
Price struck his wife. The killing oc-
curred early in the morning of Jan-
Iuary 27.
Previously the court heard Dr.
Robert J. Parsons, University Hos-
pital pathologist say that although
there was no proof, he believed that
the fatal blow was inflicted from be-
hind, thus attacking Osborne's claim
of self-defense.
Dr. Parsons said he based his belief
on his observations made when he
performed an autopsy on the b6dy
of Price Osborne.
Ann Arbor Chess Club
Begins Series Today
The Ann Arbor Chess Club will
inaugurate a series of chess lessons
for all interested at 7:30 p.m. today
in the Michigan Union, Warren R.
Good, president of the club, an-
nounced yesterday.
The Club has prepared a series of
lessons for individual instructions,
and each beginner will be assisted by
an experienced player. Beginners will
meet at 7:30 p.m. every Thursday.
No fees will be charged, and equip-
ment will be furnished.
The first lesson will deal with "The
Purpose of the Game and the Equip-

"Charlie Chaplin is to the movie
what Moliere is to the comedy drama,"
declared Prof. M. S. Pargment, speak-
ing yesterday on "L'oeucre de Charlie
Chaplin d'apres la critique cinegra-
phique francaise" in the last lecture
on the Cercle Francais program.
As an author, actor and director
Chaplin is rated by French critics
among the greatest. He is, moreover,
considered an artist, with his ability
to recreate situations comic and grave
with the same facility.
Though the movie has become
merely the recording of facial ex-
pression and roles, Chaplin, say the
French, has made more of it by add-
ing gestures and bodily movements
to coincide with the character's mind
and makeup. Rather than simply
playing a role, in other words, he
portrays a complete personage.
One of Chaplin's most notable con-
tributions to the world of cinema
is the creation of the character of
Charlot, inadapted to modern civili-
zation and buffeted about by social
injustices. He appears a coward, but
the tender manner in which Chaplin

presents this person and the magnifi-
cent way in which Charlot triumphs
over adversity make of him, instead,
a universal hero.
Chaplin, Pargment concluded, is a
poet, a universal and popular comic,
cutting true slices of life into his
works. His profound knowledge of
people and the originality and fresh-
ness of his portrayal of sentiments
and characters have endeared him to
people everywhere.

$250,000 had been given to the Com-

to 10 million dollars will be needed
for the duties contemplated for 1941-
"There can be no excuse for an
administration that fails to provide
all possible safeguards for the health
and welfare of its people, both armed
and civilian, while spending untold
millions, as they are, for mechanical
and material preparedness."
Dr. Bruce said that the minimum
of four million dollars would not at
all be excessive even if it was used
for work in only three fields blood
