AF Recruiter Is States Top Man , M/Sgt. and Mrs. J. W. Blnylock will enjoy a two-day stay in Little Rock sometime this month . . . and all because of Sergeant Blayloek's November roundup. During the past month, the local Air Force recruiter rounded up If) recruits for this nation's Air .Force. That made him top man in Arkansas and "King Recruiter" in the state, hence the reward.

State's attorneys also hammered hard at his report he found hLs brother .seriously injured OIL' morning of Hie murder of Mrs, Marilyn Sheppard. The trial goes '"to '^ s eighth week Monday, The stale charges that "Or. Sam" Sheppard, Cleveland osteopath, killed his pregnant wife as she lay in brtl early last July 4. His love affairs with nther women prompted the crime, the prosecution claims. Sheppard .says an intruder killed her, and then .struck him down, inflicting .serious injuries, when he ran to her aid. I'osltidii Chunked "Dr. Steve" Sheppard, first defense witness, testified he went into the bedroom at two separate times the morning .of July 4. He says he looked at Marilyn's body botli times. On the second occasion, he said, he noticed tiiat the position of her hands had been changed. And the jacket of her pajamas had been pulled down, covering more of her body than when he first viewed It, lie added. The implication in this was that someone tampered with the evi- dejice between the two times he saw Marilyn's body. Under cross-questioning, however, "Dr. Steve" said the changes became apparent to him from looking at police photographs. Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Pnrrino ripped Into bin testimony that he thought "Dr. Sam" had concussion of the brnln, a possible spinal injury, and was "In shock." The attorney asked if medication had been administered and the answer wa.s "no." Using "Dr. Sieve's" own words, he asked If it Was not dangerous to move a man Who was in Hint condition and get, him out, half-walking, (a an automobile. Spend rsM'Mlial "Dr. Steve" testified that, with help, he 'dragged" hLs brother to the car and rushed him to the hospital. Parrino asked why the accused man had not been put on a .stretcher if his injuries were considered .so serious. Thn older brother, however, declined to budge from hi.s assertion that lie did the right thing In losing no time before getting "Dr. Sam" lu the hospital. "I handled tills case as I handle hundreds of concussion eases every year," he said. "The Idea in every instance is to get them to the hospital as soon as possible." Hn .MIlit that, driving GO or 10 miles an hour, he reached the hospital in less than five minutes RKVIVAI, LEAOKIl—Thf Rev. imes Lamb of Kldon.

Pastor MILWAUKEE W—A butcher's I gruesome story of killing hi.s wife i with a meat cleaver and burning ! her remains in the furnace } "she wa.s such a burden" led au; thorities today to investigate the death of hLs first wife. Dlst. Atty. William McCauley said, puffy faced, bald-heudcd Raymond Wilson, 64, dictated for him yesterday the slory of how he had killed his wheelchair-ridden wife, Ethel, 67, last Monday night. Wilson said he had hLs wife's consent to get her out of her pain. Wilson was taken before Civil Judge John Coffcy in District Court on a charge of first degree murder. The case was continued to Dec. 1(5 with bond set at $25,000. Deputy Medical Examiner Joseph LaMonte said the death of Wilson's first wife, Bertha, 55, Aug. 36, 1953, was listed as a heart attack. But LaMonte said an investigation of the death would be made ?nd the doctor who signed the death certificate would be questioned, Married Widow . Wilson remarried Dec. 23, 1953. His second wife was a widow, he said, whom he had known only about a month. McCauley said Wilson in his statement told how his wife was nearly blind with cataracts and bow she had been crippled by a fall. He was quoted as saying that for a month, as doctor and hospital bills mounted, he considered doing away with her, but couldn't think of a method. ''She was such a burden,'' the district attorney said Wilson told him. "Her eyes were no good and she had that side where she had been paralyzed. . . .1 told her: 'You should go to sleep and not wake up any more.' She wa.s perfectly willing:." McCauley said Wilson then told how he .struck her a fatal blow in the back of the head with a meat cleaver as she sat in the bathtub. That night West Allis Police called on Wilson to warn him sparks were coming from his chimney. They said they found him with blood on his apron, but he told them he had -been making sausages. McCauley said Wilson yesterday told of burning part of the body that night. Officers found burned remains in the furnace. Police began an investigation of the case when relatives called at West Allis headquarters Thursday night and expressed their suspi- MURDER (Continued from Page 1) ported.
