WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Hoover's Son Named to State Or. Sheppard's Freedom Doesn't Last Long; Indictment Returned CLEVELAND (AP) — His freedom cut short by a first-degree murder indictment, Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard was back today in the dim, 4 x 8-foot jail cell he occupied from July 30 until Monday morning. Herbert, Jr., Will Replace Walter B. Smith WASHINGTON (AP) — Herbert Hoover Jr., 51, throwing aside an aversion to more desk work, has been appointed under secretary of state. He was quickly approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after the White House announcement last night. Senate confirmation was expected today. Hoover would succeed, Walter Bedell Smith as right-hand man to Secretary of State Dulles. Smith is retiring at 58 from the military- diplomatic career on which he embarked 43 years ago. "I am very much honored," Hoover told reporters. But he would say no more pending final Senate action. Hoover, a petroleum engineer, has been an adviser to Dulles for about a year. As a troubleshooter he recently won worldwide attention and praise for his part in settling the three-year-long British- Iranian oil dispute. His appointment caught many off guard. As recently as last weekend — and for months before that—he had been saying he would not accept the position. The under secretary's job involves a lot of paperwork, among other things, and associates said Hoover had a typical engineer's dislike of desk work. Another factor was a basic disagreement over tariffs reported between Hoover, on the one hand, and Eisenhower and Dulles. The President and the secretary have said that tariffs should not be allowed to hamper the flow of imports from trade-hungry nations lest those countries be forced to turn to the Soviet bloc to sell their goods. Hoover was understood to have felt duties should be nigh enough to reflect the difference between wage rates paid American workers and those paid foreign workers producing the same articles. The tall and quietly affable Hoover was born in London in 1903. He is a 1925 graduate of Stanford and took his master's degree at Harvard in 1928. He has served for years as a special consultant to such oil-rich countries as Venezuela and Iran. Smith became a private in the Indiana National Guard. He was then 15. In World War H, as a general, he served as chief of staff to Eisenhower He went to the State Department in 1953 after heading the Central Intelligence Agency. He is going to be an executive vice president of American Machine Foundry Co. The handsome, 30-year-old osteopath was eating cherry pie in the kitchen of his father's home when sheriff's deputies came to rearrest him. They let him finish eating. He was there for supper after visiting with Chip, his 7-year-old son. The boy has been living with an uncle since the July 4 morning when his mother was clubbed to death in her bed. The deputies arrived at the senior Sheppard's home an- hour after six men ana nine women grand jurors returned the indictment charging that the athletic osteopath "unlawfully, purposely and of deliberate and premeditated malice, killed Marilyn Sheppard," his 31-year-old pregnant wife. Sheppard had been free on $50,000 bail for 29V 2 hours. During most of that time, the grand jury listened to a parade of 15 witnesses testifying on the case. They deliberated about 40 minutes. Common Pleas Judge Arthur H. Day set 9:15 a. rn. Friday for the arraignment of Sheppard, who will then 'enter a plea. Since his first arrest July 30, Sheppard has maintained his innocence and clung to his story that a prowler killed his wife and injured him in a fight. The osteopath and his parents displayed no emotion as handcuffs were slipped over his husky wrists last night. His mother rushed to fill a tan paper shopping bag with a red sweat shirt, blue hobby trousers and other clothing. She tucked in some oranges and bananas. Sheppard kissed his mother as they stood in the front hall. His father grasped his hand and said: "Take care of yourself, son.',' At the county jail. Sheppard showered, changed clothing and was returned to his old cell on the fourth floor. Defense Atty. William J. Corrigan. waiting for him, complained that "it was unnecessary to pick him up now," since he was out on bond. Corrigan, whose petition for bail won Sheppard's release Monday, said he would seek release on. bail again at the arraignment. Susan Hayward Wins All In Divorce Suit BURBANK, Calif. UP) — Actress Susan Hayward has a divorce to day, along with 81,293,319 in assets and custody of her twin sons. Actor Jess Barker, the erstwhile husband, has the family station wagon. The actress' suit was vigorously opposed by Barker. The trial last June included testimony that Bar-' ker threw her nude into the swimming pool at her home, and that Miss Hayward stuck a cigarette in his eye. Barker wanted half the commu- nity property, but Miss Hayward successfully contended that all this was hers because of a prenupual agreement permitting her to keep all she earned arter their marriage in 1944. The assets ruled to be hers in- clude a million-dollar movie contract and $293.319 in cash. Barker's bank account, it was testified, amounted to about $5,000, and in 1951 and 1952 he earned $665 while the actress was earning $374,068. The source of their marital trou- ble, Miss Hayward testified, was Barker's refusal to work. He, in turn, charged she was an "icy woman" and "an absentee mother.' 1 Read Courier Jtcwa Classified Ads. in Rescue SSSEX. Md.
