2 KOKOMO (Ind.) TRIBUNE Monday, Dec. 14, T953 Legal Sparring in Marion Death Case «r Begun Baby MARION, Ind. «B— : The prosecution today began a new round of legal epa-ring by moving dismissal of indictments againit the physician and * friend of Gretchen Brunt V/oodard, who is charged with manslaughter in the death of a newborn baby abandoned on a dump here. Prosecutor James McKown asked dismissal of an indictment against Dr. John Hhorer, charged with perjury before the grand Jury, and Jack Miller, charged with being an accessory. McKown moved for dismissal on the grounds that trial of the two cases before that of Mrs. Woodard would be "prejudicial to the state." Dr. Rhorer was to be tried Dec. 21. No date wa» eet for Miller's trial and Mrs. Woodard'* case was to have come up sometime after the first of the year. It was e:. ected that the two would be reindicted and tried after Mrs. Woodard's case had been heard. But Miller's attorneys asked a ruling that the indictment be dismissed with prejudice to the state of Indiana. The Grant Circuit Court set 9 a.m. Tuesday for a ruling. Dismissal of the indictment with prejudice to the state would mean Miller could never be tried as an accessory because it would constitute double jeopardy (trial twice for the same offense). Miller was arraigned this morning just before the dismissal motion was filed. He is charged with helping Mrs. Woodard dispose of the new-born child's body on a Marion dump last March. Dr. Rhorer was charged with JOLLY SANTA Will Greet All Good Children Each Night From 6:SO - 8:00 At HAL'S Out-0-Doors Stan perjury on the grounds he lied in telling the grand jury Mrs. Woodard was not pregnant when he examined her two months before the child's birth. Mrs. Woodard, who was then unmarried, has since married an Air Force enlisted man and is expecting a child in March.

All four drove to Noblesville, the statement read, where they tried to sell the animals. Unable to sell them in that town, the four then went to Tipton, where they also failed to sell them, Garling said. Finally, they tried to sell them in Sharpsville, but a fur dealer there sent them to Converse. It was while the four were in that area that Deputy Sheriff Fred Foland spotted them after a tip from the Sharpsville man.

Bank Robbers Evade Intense Police Search SAVANNAH, Ga. tP>— A pair of bank robbers, facing 25-year federal prison terms, desperately defied an intensive police search today after fleeing Chatham County Jail. Myron Peter Goldman, 32, and Samuel Joseph Horabeck, 34, both of Louisville, Ky., forced jailers x> free them at gunpoint Sunday night and sped away in a car commandeered from a Savannah couple, Sheriff William C. Harris said. Goldman and Hornbeck were convicted with two others in U.S. District Court here Dec. 3 of robbing the southside branch of the Citizens & Southern National Bank 3f $83,359 last April. Hornbeck shoved a silver-plated pistol into the stomach of jailer 3. W. Hall while Goldman jumped Furnkey M. O. Chaman, Sheriff rlarris said. He said the pair made heir move when the prisoners vere being locked up for the night. The sheriff said he believed one if the escapees' wives smuggled he gun into the jail in a box of ;ereal. The women visited Gold- nan and Hornbeck yesterday and hecked out of a Savannah hotel that at least 17 ol ma animals are missing. It was understood that some of them might have escaped while the men were' taking them out of the pens Thursday night. The 17 mink were valued at more than $1,300 by the owner. He said that 11 of them are worth about $65 apiece and the other six, which were breeders, about $150 each. It was understood that the Great Lakes Mink Association has a standing: offer of a $500 reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing mink from an association member.

Howe said she was prepared for the shock after the 22 Americans refused to attend explanations Sunday. "It was perfectly obvious to me it was going to be a negative reply—if there was to be a reply at all. I was not surprised." Asked if she thought the letter was a true expression of Richard's feelings, she said: "I think he thinks it represents his true feelings. "This terrible thing has happened to him in a prison camp under what conditions I don't know, and under circumstances I do not understand. "But I think the Communists are capable of doing -the sam» thing under other conditions. If they can destroy the home, they can disintegrate the nation." In another passage, he wrote, "It is impossible for me to live in the United States because I want to live as I wish." < The mother commented, "I wouldn't have any idea what he ( meant about 'impossible.' 1 "I have failed somewhere and < I must find but where, because I 1 lave three other children and I must not make the same mistake. • "I believe a mother should start at birth trying to train a child for ] Dulles Urges ' (Continued from Poje On*) association in a field where He the greatest prospects for progress arid also the most powerful means of annihilation." Bidault also said that Big Four talks with Russia are "in sight" and added: "We shall see what it may bring." Bidault called on the ministers "to conduct with vigor the work of the Atlantic community and in particular to ensure that each member effectively translates into facts the annual recommendations made to it." He sounded the keynote for the "flatten!ng-out" in defense expenditures expected to be put into effect following the three-day meeting. He said: "We must also seek all means to achieve as efficient a yield as possible from the naturally limited resources available to our nations for defense expenditure. It implies a continuous improvement of coordination and standardization of methods in order to avoid waste and duplication detrimental to the development of our forces." Bidault cautioned the United States to be patient until the European Defense Community could be ratified and called on Britain to give closer support to the defense community.

Her face showing'the strain of the last few days, Mrs. Howe almost broke down as she said, Where did I fail—I don't know where I failed. "I must find out where because I have three other children and I must not make the same mistake." "I still want to see my son—I still want to see him." With the prisoner explanation program at a standstill and the attempts to set up a Korean peace conference broken off, Panmun- jom remained quiet today—in contrast to the bustle of days past. U. S. special envoy Arthur H. Dean, who walked out of the negotiations with the Reds last Saturday, leaves Tuesday for Washington and consultations with his government and representatives of other United Nations. • His chief aide, Kenneth Young _f the U. S. 'State Department, will stay in Korea, Dean said, for one week "to see if the Communists wish to resume" the talks.
