'Not Guilty' In
Alleged Slayer Of Gallaher
Girl Astonishes Crowd In
Plea Upsets Prosecution's
Action For Immediate
DETROIT, July 9.P- () - Merton
Ward Goodrich, his eyes averted and
his knees quaking, astonished a
crowded courtroom at his arraign-
ment in recorder's court today by
mumbling a plea of innocence in the
sensational Lillian Gallaher murder
The former trap drummer, who has
made a detailed confession of the
"trunk slaying," fainted as he was led
to a cell pending routine examination,
and Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea
sent for a physician.
Within a few minutes Goodrich was
returned to court, and brought face
to face with the brother of the girl.
Again he seemed on the point of col-
lapse as Clayton Gallaher looked at
him with undisguised contempt.
Plea Upsets Plans
Goodrich caught the look. Pasty-
faced and trembling, he slumped into
a chair as Gallaher told of going to
the county morgue last September to
identify the mutilated body of his
Goodrich was ordered held for trial.
Goodrich's plea upset prosecution
plans to have him undergo an im-
mediate sanity hearing. It also upset
plans to have a similar inquiry for
his wife, Mrs. Florence Harding Good-
Goodrich seemed sleepy and indif-
ferent when he first was led into
court, his wrists manacled to detec-
tives. The room was packed. Many
of the spectators were women. Good-
rich attempted to avoid their eyes.
His hands began to shake so he
hardly could hold a glass of water a
detective gave him.
"How do you plead?" asked the
Asks For Attorney
Goodrich began to mumble. He
was asking the court to appoint an
attorney to represent him.
"I am not sure I can do that before
examination," the judge said.
Goodrich seemed surprised.
"I'm'sorry," he mumbled.
Before he was returned to court
for examination, detectives demanded
to know who had advised him to plead
"Was it your wife?"
"Well," said Goodrich, "we talked it

Held Without Bail
The prisoner remained in his chair,
his eyes downcast. He mumbled in-
audibly. Then he shook his head.
"You are held for trial without
bail," the court said.
Mrs. Goodrich was not brought into
court. No charges have been filed
Goodrich received a letter today
from his father, Merton E. Goodrich,
a Cleveland hotel clerk, advising him
to "waive a jury trial, have the at-
torney the state gives you plead in-
sanity, as of course you are when you
do these things, and leave your fate
in the hands of the judge."
The father, a former minister, said
he was writing "in very great sorrow
and sympathy" and urged his son to
repent "and trust in God."

HUEY P. LONG
Kingf isl1 Says
Fresh Blast Against New
Deal Administration Is
Made BySenator Long
NEW ORLEANS, July 9-W) - A
fresh blast against the New Deal ad-
ministration by Senator Huey P. Long
was centered today on his accusation
that President Roosevelt is "a liar
and a faker."
Riding the crest of another surge
of legislation which gives him un-
precedented control over the state of
Louisiana, Long assailed the Presi-
dent last night with a personal de-
nunciation unmatched in his previous
attacks on the administration.
His accusation came during a radio
speech in which he touched on the
recently enacted old age pension bill.
"Let me tell you about this Roose-
velt pension plan," the senator said.
"Under it there are 280,000 persons
in Louisiana who would get about
S1,000,000 which would mean that
the state's old age pensioners would
get about $3.60 a year or a little less
than one cent a day.
"That's what Franklin Delano
Roosevelt sends you down here.
"Franklin Roosevelt is a liar and
a faker. Now let them indict me for
that and I'll prove him a liar."
Interspersed with the attack was
another tirade against Long's politi-
cal enemies and a review of the work
of the recent legislative session at
which the general assembly broad-
ened the senator's control over the
state to an almost unlimited degree.
Long's blast against the chief ex-
ecutive came during a discussion of
old age pensions and was followed by
sharp pokes at Mr. Roosevelt on his
tax-the-rich and relief programs.
