PAG* TWELTB BLYTmriLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1954 Never Saw Dr. Sam, Wife Fight, High School Football Player Says CLEVELAND (AP) high school football player who agreed lie looked uf osteopath Sam Sheppard "like a big brother" testified today he never saw him get into "spats" with his wife. Larry Houk, Ifryear-old son of Mayor J. Spencer Houk of suburban Bay Village and n neighbor of the accused osteopath, also said he never saw Sheppard display an} 1 temper. Testifying at Shcpparcvs trial, where the doctor is charged with murdering his wife, Marilyn, the youth was asked hy Defense Counsel Fred Garmone whether he ever saw the Sheppards "have any over the use of a garage AI clubhouse by boys in the neighborhood. MCCARTHY (Continued from Page 1) and that if he did believe It, he was guilty of "mental incapacity." McCarthy commented to newsmen: "If I had said that about him (Ervin), I would be censured for it." McCarthy said a switch In position yesterday by Sen. Case (B- SD) "is n very important development and may change the picture." Breaking away from his colleagues on the commiltee headed by Sen. Watkins (K-Utah), Case announced he will vote against rebuking McCarthy on grounds he abused Brig. Gen. Ralph W. Zwlck- «. Case did not discuss in his statement the first of two counts—that McCarthy treated with contemp an elections subcommittee which looked ino his finances In 1051-52. Case previously said McCarthy could purge himself on this charge by apologizing to those Involved. McCarthy has said he won't retract. Others Unchanged Other members of the Watkins group stood behind their charges. Case said he changed his mind about the Zwlcker count because of "positive evidence" that the Army staff let MnJ. Irving Peress "slip out of their grasp" although they knew McCarthy had demanded a court-martial for Peress. Peress, nn Army dentist, had invoked the Fifth AmendOni e n t against possible self-lncrlmination when he was questioned by McCarthy's Senate Invctlgntlons subcommittee about alleged Communist connections. McCarthy wrote Secretary of the Army Stevens Feb. l" asking for n court-mnrtinl for Peress. The next day Peress wns given nn honorable discharge at Camp Kilmer. N.J., then commanded by Zwlcker. Case made public a letter in which Stevens snld McCarthy's Feb. 1 letter wns received thai same dny by John a. Adams, Army Department counselor, nnri that Adams (old the "responsible Army staff" about it. "After review of the letter, It was concluded thnt there wns no rddttionnl evidence to require mod- ificiatlon of the prior determination in the Peress case . . and that the best interests of the United States would be served by his prompt separation (from the service)," Stevens snid. McCarthy questioned Zwlcker Feb. 18 and the Wntkins committee's charge grew out of his alleged "abuse" of Zwlcker at n one-mnn hearing. Case wrote Watkins this went "far toward explaining" McCarthy's conduct. Zwicker, he said. Was "under wrnps, wns unable to pin-point the persons responsible for giving more consideration to a request from a false-swearing Communist seeking to flee from the Army's jurisdiction than to a suggestion from the chairman of a Senate investigating committee that 'court-martial proceedings be immediately instituted.' " He said he didn't blame Zwlcker. ATOMIC (Continued trom Page 1) marked by the proposed international atomic agency to participating nations lor building reactors for peaceful purposes. The United States and six other Western atomic powers have sponsored a resolution designed to set up an international atomic agency along the lines of an autonomous specialized U.K. iiuem-y. The Russinas have submitted a series of still-si-cret amendments to the resolution. Reliable sources say the Soviet changes would place the proposed agency under the U.N. Security Council, in which the Russians wield ft veto, and would give Red China a sny in the negotiations on the agency. The West already has made it clear it will accept no such conditions. Another neighbor, Mrs. Donald Ahern, testified previously she recalled that Marilyn and Sara had minor arguments over the use of this clubhouse on the Sheppard property. But young Houk. a sophomore tackle on the Bay Village High School team, said: "I don't recall any (spats)." Found Bar Larry was one of the persons who was in the Sheppard home the day Mrs. Shcppard was foun murdered In her bed. It was he who found a bag containing Shcppard's blood stained wrist watch and a key ring, among other things, • ' the weeds near the Sbeppard house. The osteopath says the bag apparently was flung there by the "bushy haired" burgler he insists killed his wife. The boy said Mrs. Ehcppard always Heated with courtesy boys who played in the clubhouse, and that she permitted him to use the beach behind the Shcppard home whenever he desired. "Dr. Sam taught you how to ski, didn't he?" Qarmone asked. "Yes," the boy replied. "You looked up to Dr. Sum like a big brother?" "Yes, I did," young Houk said. Later today, the state hoped to call one of its chief witnesses, the Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) cor- Dec Mch May July Commodity And Stock Markets- York Cotton (12:31 qioUIUnit 3419 3421 3415 3455 3456 3450 3481 3483 3417 . 3485 3485 3478 New Orleans Cotton Dec 3422 3423 3419 Mch 3457 3458 3453 May 3484 3484 3477 July 3485 3485 3478 3418 3450 3480 3480 3418 3453 3480 3480 Chicago Soybeans May 276 >/» 279'/2 282y 2 2831/2 278'/a 281 283% 284'/2 Chicago Corn 155% 159 V4 156% 16014 Chicago Wheat Mch 237% 228% 220 '/, 230% 270 27B'/2 281 282 15514 150'A 228 220y« 218 280% 283 284'/, 16014 22014 230% New York Stocks A T and T .............

BARRYMORE (Continued from Page 1) should he." Knowlnnd agreed with some Democratic senators that the United States .should be able to negotiate with the Russians "from a position of strength," but he said he could not concede their nrgu- ments that the armed forces had been weakened by administration cuts in the defense budget.
