U.S. Senate candidate Bill Allen arrived late at the poolside tea party, was rushed to a shady area beneath a towering oak tree, and was promptly introduced to the Bel-Air gathering of Republican women as a candidate for U.S. attorney. His hostess quickly corrected the error, but no sooner had Allen taken command of the card-table lectern when the woman tripped and nearly toppled into the pool. Allen did not miss a beat.

Closing arguments are set to begin Thursday; jurors will get the case thereafter.
