COUCH “COLD AS STffl.” WHEN HE HEARS

WAR TALK TO
BY ROBERT J. BENDER.
United Press Staff Correspondent.
Washington, March 28.—President Wilson will have to j
be definite and specific to get what he wants from con- j
This is the impression today “on the hill.”
A vast majority of the 40 percent of the new congress j
here, ready for the Monday' opening, feel that way about it. j
They say that if the president shows any inclination in
his coming “war hicssage” to be too general, regarding what
he wants, wide difference of opinion will result and per-
haps disastrous delay.
Congress leaders and men in the ranks say flatly that ‘
right now congressmen want to be told why he called tjicm i
into extraordinary session and what he wants them to do i
With all pre-congress preparedness steps now practically
taken, the big question hinged today on what the president
will say next Tuesday when lie addresses the joint session.
Congressional “war temper” evident among early arri-
vals was “forged back home.” They all say they are return-
ing with a completely renovated set of ideas especially
Arown in the back home garden plots.
\ While this temper predominates, there is also evidence
that some western members brought a slight cooling of the
war spirit. . M „
Certain representatives and 1 majority of the people don t want
some senators, who have strong- war." They are ready, however,

Dallas. Tex.. March 28.—
"The 1'. S. is already in the

address here. "Within 10
days the actual declaration
will be made, either by Ger-
many or ourselves. It cannot
be avoided. The thing for
the American people to know
now is what they will be
fighting for in this war.” he

"We are now on the brink

important events In the life of
the republic,” he said. "We
have been very complacent
and tranquil in all of this
world turmoil, but now we
are going to war."

when a district court jury at 11:35 Wednesday a. m. re-
\ turned a guilty verdict with life imprisonment in the paw
Couch sat erect and never flinched as District Jadgw
Clark read the words of the formal finding. Couch seemed
j to be in the same state of ‘‘com^’ that he assumed and
kept after he quieted from his outburst of tears when his
! little daughter turned against him on the stand and said,
j “1 hate him.”
Neither the daughter nor Couch's former wife, Mva.
Mary Couch, heard the verdict. They were at the courts
house during the morning but left a few minutes before
the jury reported.
The verdict was returned after the Jury had been out
19 hours to the minute. The first ballot after the jury
was given the case at 5:35 Tuesday afternoon found Coucn.
guilty of murder.
this vote blew up the insanity jdea and the question
was then whether life in the pen or death in the electric
chair would be the penalty.
7 to 5 For Death
The first ballot was 7 to 5 for death. A few ballots later
those favoring death jumped to nine.
It was from this point that the real struggle to reach*
a verdict started. 1
The three held out and finally one by one won over'
the other nine jurors. The jury's discussion centered
principally on whether there was any chance that Couch
might get a pardon. The belief that there was little chance^
for this prevailed.
