(Puska TIMESFOTOS) Eisenhower Ins In Balloting At Drugstores - ; Fayetteville Puts Kefauver Second To General Jury Selection In Murder Case Is Under Way Three Women Chosen From Panel During Morning Session The firsl degree murder trial of Richard "Dick" Hudson, 54, of Fayeltevilje in the fatal shooting last November 17 of his divorced wife, Mrs. Helen Watts. 35, opened in Circuit Court this morning with Judge Maupin Cummings | presiding. Selection ol the jury moved slowly throughout the morning. Indications were that the 1 panel would be .completed during the early afternoon. With three women already selected during the morning, the case appeared almost certain to be heard by more women jurors than any previous Washington County murder case. Hudson, a Fayetteville liquor dealer for many years, was charged shortly after his divorced wife died in a local hospital from a bullet wound in the neck. The defendant, who gave himself up | to Sheriff Bruce Crider at the time of the shooting, said Mrs. Watts was shot when his revolver discharged accidentally. She. was standing in the backyard of Hudson's home on Highway 71 north at the time. The defense argument,apparently will be that Hudson, who had ordered his former wife to leave the house afler an argument, was County 4-H Club Officers Are Chossn Star OifJobsAII Over Nation SteefWorkers Bac|c Although Pay Raise Is Not Allowed mg Of Fish At . \Lake Reported Folks who balloted in the Ar- | kansas Pharmaceutical Association j choice-for-nrcsiricnt in Fayctte- i ville last Thursday.
