There is no time limit to the jury's doliberntions. the Judge said later. He declared: "I don't think there is any limit, and evon Sundns' is a fine dny. As long as the defendant Is in court. I don't think there is any law against deliberating or return- ins a verdict on Sunday." Sheppard confronted them three times during recesses In the deliberations. Each time they left the Criminal Courts Building, for luncheon, dinner and retirement, they were brought back to the courtroom where (lie trial was held.

Five years ago the United States tried to talk Sweden into joining the North Atlantic Defense Alliance. The Swede-s, fearful that Russia would then move into Finland, refused. Most in Asia In this sense of not being an alliance member, Sweden is technically neutral, Switzerland has maintained a neutral policy in all kinds of conflicts -for many decades, Yugoslavia has a policy which represents a kind of neutrality.
