MRS. WOODWARD EXONERATED

Jury Fails To Indiet In Killing Of Husband

Panel Deliberates For 40 Minutes; Wirths Held on Burglary Charges

(Picture on Page 3.)

MINEOLA, N. Y., Nov. 25 After an all-day session cli- maxed by the testimony of grief-worn Ann Crowell Woodward, the Nassau County (Long Island) Grand Jury tonight voted no indict- ment in the fatal shooting of her multimillionaire sports- man-husband early last Oct. 30.

The jury deliberated 40 min- utes before reaching its deci- sion that Mrs. Woodward was blameless of crime in the shot- gun slaying in the Woodwards’

Island’s North Shore.

The widow, veiled in black and supported on either side by her lawyer and her doctor, emerged at 8 p. m.—15 minutes) after her exoneration—from the county courthouse here.

The jury’s finding apparently had not assuaged her sorrow. She was sobbing heavily, as she had been when she entered the courthouse at 4:35 p. m. She had to be assisted to her car for the trip back to her Man- hattan town house.

Her reaction to the official

“She prays that now she will be left alone,” he Said.

The official finish to the shooting of William Woodward Jr., bearer of one of the famous names in New York society and horse racing circles, was writ- ten in a moment of eloquent silence in the courtroom of County Judge Norman F, Lent.

The Grand Jury, after hear- ing 31 witnesses, including Mrs. Woodward, had begun its delib- erations at 7:05 p. m. Shortly after 7:30 p. m. Judge Lent was summoned to hear the panel's findings.

The jury came into court al 7:45 p. m. The proceedings’ were brief and routine. The) foreman, Ernest G. Blaich, a) Port Washington real estate man, handed up three indict ments.

‘Rev. Clyde R. Brown, pastor of the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church. They visited the farm

with their wives. The President has not been to church since his heart attack Sept. 24.

He signed papers promoting 97 foreign service officers dur- ing a morning business session with Col. Andrew J. Goodpast- er, secretary of the White House staff.

The Eisenhowers’ son, John; his wife, Barbara, and their three children came _ for Thanksgiving and are expected to stay till Sunday.

White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty went home to Washington for the weekend, the first time he has left the President since his illness. Hag- erty’s relief, Assistant Press Secretary Murray Snyder, said it was still uncertain whether the President would come back to Gettysburg after Chri’tmas in the White House or remain permanently in Washington. He will go down sometime after Dec. 18, when he is scheduled to open the Pageant of Peace on the Ellipse by remote con- trol from Gettysburg.

Snyder, one of those airlifted to Camp David this week for the Cabinet and National Se- curity Council meetings, said he thought the helicopter flights were a good “demon- stration” of how Government ‘chiefs could get out of town \fast and set up new headquar- ‘ters in an emergency.

U.S. to Test ‘Improved’ Super-Bomb

By Paul Southwick United Press + The United States plans to

‘jexplode new H-bomb models at NS its Pacific proving grounds next | V7, spring which will rival or sur-|7Z

pass Russia's hew super weap- on, it was disclosed yesterday.

Rep. James E. Van Zandt (R- Pa.), a member of the Joint Congressional Atomic Commit- tee, confirmed to a reported that this country “will launch another series of special weap- ons tests next spring” at Eni- wetok.

Other sources said a variety of H-bomb models are involved. They predicted the energy yields of some of the devices will be equivalent to millions of tons of TNT—the range of the new Soviet bomb announced by the Atomic Energy Commission Wednesday.

Disclosure of the new tests came as Sen. Clinton P. Ander- son (D-N. M.), chairman of the Joint Committee, urged the United States to step up its H- bomb tests in view of Russia's latest “display of fireworks.”

Anderson said in Albuquer-

months ago. Presiden‘ial Assist- ant Sherman Adams later wrote him the resignation had been| accepted.

At his Haverhill, Mass., home, Coddaire said he had no partic- ular plans for the future. Friends recalled his telling them as early as May that he was thinking of taking life easy and getting in some fishing.

Although: Coddaire’s term on the Board expired Aug. 9, a Con- gressional amending bill, signed a few days before, permitted members to serve until their successors had been appointed and confirmed. Coddaire was in the middie of hearing a case at the time and continued in office.

Coddaire, a Republican, was appointed by President Tru- man to two terms on the Board. Previously, Mr. Truman ap- pointed him to the United States Maritime Commission. Coddaire also once served as

que, N. M., that this country “had better not relax its vigil- ance now” as the test shows “their smiling faces aren't smil- ing all the time. The er of their latest test certainly should require us to keep up and to step up our own testing.”

In announcing the Soviet test, AEC Chairman Lewis L. Strauss said its force was “in the range of megatons.” A meg- aton is the explosive equival- ent of 1 million tons of TNT. That clearly placed the Red bomb in the hydrogen rather than atomic range.

Van Zandt denied reports the Eniwetok tests had been de layed or cancelled because of the Geneva big four conference and the world Atoms-for-Peace plan. He said tests are proceed- ing on schedule,

It was understood the tests would include H-bombs larger than the famous shot of March 1, 1954, estimated to have had a power equal to from 12 to 20

Capt. and Mrs. Ronne could not be reached for comment on the Admiral’s slip, which ig- nored “Jackie” Ronne’s consid- erable part in discovering the Antarctic world. The Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition was a privately financed trip, which “Jackie,” a George Wash- ington University graduate and former State Department em- ploye, had no intention of tak- ing.
