CONTESTANTS FINISH CASE
Proponents of Will of Mrs. Harry Gopcevic Will Now Have Their Day in Court
TESTIMONY IS STRANGE
Witnesses for Dissatisfied Relatives Declare Woman Was Mentally Weak
LAKEPORT, May 15. The contestants of the will of Mrs. Harry A. L. Floyd Gopcevic finished their evidence and rested to-day. All the evidence introduced has been to show that Mrs. Gopcevic was mentally weak. It was said that she imagined she was a famous character in romances and acted their parts, even to dressing and living as they lived for days at a time, and insisted upon other people recognizing her as such characters. It was testified that she refused to answer to her own name when addressed.
Witnesses declared that while her friends and relatives discouraged her in these delusions that Miss Pritchard encouraged her to such an extent that she secured control over her mind. It was further testified that Miss Pritchard and Gopcevic were the only persons present when the will was made.
The executors of the will begin their side of the case to-morrow.
