High Court To Take Up Girard Case By PAUL M. YOST WASHINGTON Mft — Newlywed GI William S. Girard gels an unusual four hours of attention from the Supreme Court today in his fight to avoid trial by a Japanese civil court for fatally wounding a Japanese woman. Prompt surrender of the American soldier to Japan is urged by government attorneys to ease "international friction" and prevent "great embarrassment" they say would result if this government were prevented from carrying out its commitment to Japan. But attorneys for Girard say he is being sacrificed to appease Japanese agitators and thus is a victim of what they call a "political decision" by the U.S. government. His attorneys want the Supreme Court to order Girard's release from Army custody at once, since no charge has been filed against him by the military. Girard, an Army specialist third class from Ottawa, 111., is confined to Camp Whittington, a U.S. Army base 60 miles from Tokyo, where he was married last week to the former Haru (Candy) Sueyama. Girard has described as an accident the fatal shooting of Mrs. Naka Sakai on a firing range in Japan where Girard and another soldier had been assigned to guard a machine gun. The woman was shot in the back with an empty cartridge case fired from a grenade launcher. He also has denied Japanese charges that he tossed some empty cartridges cases toward the woman and enticed her to come closer before shooting. Rep. Burleston (D-Tex) said last week a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee had been informed that Girard "coaxed" Mrs. Sakai to approach. He called it "a smart- aleck trick" which makes Girard no hero. But he contended the soldier was on duty and should be tried by court-martial. Murray Snyder, assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, said in a television interview Sunday the government did not "cite all the information at hand" because to have done so might have hurt Girard's defense. He "declined to discuss the additional information, but said some of it had been filed with the courts in an affidavit not yet made public. Atty. Gen. Brownell asked reversal of a decision by U.S. Dist. Judge Joseph C. McGarraghy here that the government could tie BRIGHT FAMILY iyi/ie Watsons milllllk EE HERK" not turn Girard over to Japan. McGarraghy said the soldier was on official duty at the time of the shooting last Jan. 30. If Girard is subject to prosecution, McGarraghy ruled, it must be before a U.S. military court- martial as called for by the U.S. Uniform Code of Military Justice. But Brownell contended the decision of the executive branch of government—approved by President Eisenhower—to compel Girard to go on trial before a Japanese civil court is not unreasonable or capricious and is not subject to interference by federal courts.
