ed to let the matter go and took sev
eral drinks together. The two
men remained together lor an
hour lunger when a reference to the
woman again led to hot words. Then
they separated, Motz joined a friend
Aaron Weidensaul, while Lenharl en
tered a nearby restaurant. Mut ami
Weidensaul went to the Baker House.
Lenharl approached Mut. and, so
