Octogenarian on Stand Says Outfigured in Land Trade.
Jesse W. Walling, age 81, on the witness stand yesterday in the court of Judge Bruce Blake, testified that his daughter, Mrs. Harvey Elbert, “figured” him out of $1820 in a realty trade when he gave up his right to Oregon property.
Mr. Walling, who is suing his daughter and son-in-law, testified he had confidence in his child and thought he had no money coming to him after he traded the Oregon property for her property in Washington. Later he found $1820 was due him, he said. The daughter will testify today.
