The jury of eight men and four women, all from rural parts of the state, found Con- nelly and Caudle guilty after deliberating 9 hours and 5 min- utes. The jurors were reported to have taken five ballots be- fore reaching their verdict.

Both defendants took the verdiet calmly. Connelly, 48, had no comment, but Caudle, 52, said: “My conscience is so clear and so open I can face my God, my sweet children and my friends. I have no apologies for anything I have done.”

Schwimmer was Indicted with Connelly and Caudle but removed as a defendant three weeks ago after suffering a dramatic courtroom heart at- tack. Wyllys Newcomb, special assistant attorney general who headed the prosecution team, said Schwimmer would be tried as soon as he is recovered.

Oil Royalties Charged

During the trial, the Govern. ment charged Schwimmer, a frequent White House caller during the Truman Administra- tion, induced Connelly and Caudle to drop criminal prose- cution of Sachs. Witnesses testified Schwimmer bought an oil royalty worth $3600 in Con- nelby’s name and another worth $2200 in Caudle’s name.

The Government maintained the royalties were given the two men as bribes for their efforts on Sach’s behalf. Both defend- ants denied it.

Connelly swore he paid Schwimmer $750 for his royalty and never knew it was worth more than that amount. Caudle said he told Schwimmer to get the property out of his name and “cut him to ribbons” for buying it.

Sachs was indicted by a Fed- eral grand jury in St. Louis in 1951. He pleaded guilty and was fined $40,000. Judge Roy W. Harper, who fined Sachs, testified at the Connelly-Caudle trial that he did not send Sachs to prison because he was in an advanced stage of epilepsy. He said he would make the same decision again.

Murphy said yesterday. |

Dr. Murphy said an anaphy- lactic result from shots given for a cold lowered Gaston Pitt- man’s resistance instead of rais- ing it and caused him to col lapse and die on a sidewalk shortly after treatment.

The reaction was caused by an allergy Pittman apparently had had for some time that was not affected by previous peni- cillin shots, Dr. Murphy added.

“It is impossible radioactivity had anything to do with it (death),” Dr. Murphy said. He maintained that exhaustive chemical analyses had failed to reveal any sign of radioactivity in the body tissues.

Pittman, a construction work- er, was in the vicinity of a

\portable atomic reactor being

built at Ft. Belvoir when an isotope of radioactive iridium was accidentally left unshielded for about three hours May 14 Three days later, only min- utes after visiting the Labor Medical Center at 301 G st. ne.., Pittman collapsed. The 36-year- old construction worker had lived at 1926 Ist st. nw. First theories linked death to the atomic plart inci-

dent.

At the time of Pittman’s

death, the Atomic Energy Com- | mission denied the possibility | that radioactivity was to blame. | *

An AEC statement said Pitt- | the 15 |

man “was not among persons in the vicinity of the iridium radioactive isotope” al- though he was employed on

ithe project by a private con-

tractor.

“The amount of radiation to which he could have been ex posed, if any, is therefore less than the small amount received by the 15 others,” the AEC continued

The 15 men working closer to the isotope, which emits penetrating gamma rays, have reported no harmful effects.

‘Education’ To Lobbying

Half of $1,753,513 Fund Seen as Paid With Tax Dollars

By Murrey Marder

Stalf Reporter

Senate investigators sald yés- terday that an oil and gas in- dustry group's $1,753,513 “edu-

indirect lobbying,” half of it financed by “tax dollars.” Chairman John L. McClellan (D-Ark.) and other Senate Lob- by Committee members ques- tioned whether such money

could be charged off by oil and gas companies as “a. legal business expense.”

Leonard F. McCollum of Houston, Tex., president of Continental Oil Co. and chair- man of the Natural Gas and Oil Resources Committee, ex- pressed abhorrence at the sug- gestion the Committee engaged in any kind of lobbyirg

“Not one cent of our funds has been spent for campaign contributions or legislative con- tact work,” said McCollum.

He said his Committee, set up in 1954, sought to “make

Nude Body Of Victim

Taken From Va. Stream

Search Launched For Blue Auto Believed Used By Mad Slayer

Maryland and Virginia po lice last night launched a search for a “psychopathic killer” following the discov- ery of the nude body of a young girl, the second found within a week, lying face down in a shallow Virginia creek.

Det. Trooper (

Sct. Wilson May and Wood said they were convinced the body found yesterday was that of Shelby Jean Venable, 16. of North Laurel, Md. who vanished with Mary Elizabeth Fellers, 18, of Beltsville. Md

A body found last Saturday on the Virginia side of the Po- tomac River opposite Bruns wick, Md., has been identified as Miss Fellers by her sister, Louise Myer, 20, of Laurel.

While final identification of both girls awaits pathological tests, police said identity of the second body has been almost positively established through body markings and a broken tooth. | Clinching it further was the grim discovery of a black belle rina slipper with three white \buttons in a clump of poison oak about 100 feet from the | e of the stream in which ing body was found. | The Venable girl was wear ing such slippers when she and Miss Fellers apparently ac- cepted the offer of a ride with a young man as they waited at a bus stop in Beltsville, en route to the Venable girl's home

“I know in my hart that the’ girl they found today is Shelby Jean,” the Venable girl's mother, Edith, told reporters,

Mis. Venable had told police that Shelby Jean had a tooth broken off at the gum on her lower right jaw, a 4inch scar on the front of her upper leg and a wart on each ankle

The body found yesterday had all of these markings, Sgt. May, working out of Maryland's Waterloo barracks, said.

May and Wood, a Virginia trooper, said police were work- ing on the assumption that the girls were the murder victims of “some fiendish mind.”

The body believed to be that of the Venable girl was found in the north fork of Catoctin Creek, near Wheatland, Va.. a Loudoun County community, about 10 miles south of Bruns wick, Ma

The body, lying in about six inches of water, was found by Elmer Kitts, 50, of Hamilton, Va., as he and Samuel Jewell, 13 were seining for minnows near Routes 9 and 2

The spot is only nine miles from the point where the nude body of the other girl was

Blamed

Police Rout 150 Swimmers Seeking

A squad of eight Park Po- licemen was called out to dis- perse more than 150 disgruntled swimmers yesterday at Ana- ecostia Park as the mercury climbed to an unofficial 97 degrees. :

The 97 reading was regis tered at the Weather Bureau's administration building at 24th and M sts. nw., but Bureau’ spokesmen. said the official high reading was 93, two de- gress below the 95 record max- imum for June 14.

With only two lifeguards on duty, gates to the pool were closed after about 200 swim- mers were admitted. Some of those in the crowd left outside began kicking in panels of the main door to the pool entrance while Park Police Pvt. Colin Hamilton sought to preserve order.

Hamilton said he tried to dis- perse the crowd by playing a

Police said Ashton dived from an 18-foot-high diving board, his head striking the head of Lat- timore.

James Garland, 38, of 1016 Rhode Island ave. ne., was ad- mitted to Casualty Hospital after he collapsed from the heat in the 7100 block of Chest- nut st. nw. about 5:15 p. m.

The purpose “was not solely, or. principally either, to obtain legislation .. ."MecCollum said. But he agreed that “influenc- ing legislation” might be one result.

Bert C. Goss, president of Hill»

was the rea’ goal. In that case, Anderson asked,

545 up to March 31. of: which $1,753,513 was spent on that date—and Hill and Knowlton! received $1,687,706 of that, Goss said

Anderson pointed out that the gas Committee's own audi- tors listed the money as “as- sessments.”

Amid laughter, McCollum! said they were not. very expe rienced auditors. He. insisted the money was not assess-| ments, but “requested contri- butions” based on a percentage) of valuation and production| formula, with the 80 companies'| having a “total valuation” of $3,261,000,000

Above and beyond listed as spent, Fay emphasized, there was what McCollum called 2100 “volun- teers’"—from the oil industry —in organized groups “in the 48) States and the District of! Columbia" working under Markham's direction.

Adenauer began his talks here with considerable worry whether the United States was prepared to remain firm in the face of the new Soviet smile As he left, he appeared to feel, diplomats said, that America would remain firm on the Ger- man issue but he was still un- certain about both the future American stance in larger East- West picture and the attitude of Britain and France, the other Western powers who share in the final solution of the German issue.

White House Press Secre- tary James C. Hagerty later reported that President Eisen- hower showed “no untoward physical reaction” after the German leader's visit The

after described the President's condition as satisfactory. He was freed of the drainage tube leading from his nose to his stomach.

The President continued to take small amounts of ef broth hy mouth as well as tea and warm water. Intravenous feeding was continued with the glucose eing fortified by a protein substance.

Hagerty was asked by a re- porter whether he would sub mit a question to the President, one asking the President wheth- er he thinks it is necessary for him to “reconsider” his deci- sion to run for a second term.

“I most certainly would not submit that question while the President was in the hospital,” Hagerty said. “No, I would not.”

DEFENSE—From P. I

Air Power Slow-Down

Charged by

money ceilings “dictated” by’ the “Secretary of Defense,” he said, the Air Force has to con-! centrate on a few projects and drop or delay others.

As examples, Gardner said

the SAGE automatic air fenge system and the Distant Early Warning chain “were de- layed this year because of lack of money.” For the same rea-! son, the giant C-132 turbo-prop) transport was held up two years, the F-104 supersonic fighter was delayed, and devel- opment of a new long-range interceptor and fighter-bomber was abandoned.

Development of an atomic- powered airplane has been an “on again, off again” project, and at one time top Defense Officials “tried to cancel it al- together.” the Californian tes- tified. Funds were allowed for

President’s Physicians

Now touring Israel, Leader told the Jerusalem Post

“Tt is neither amusing nor entirely accurate for his doc- tors to keep emphasizing that he is competent to carry on his duties as he falls U1 with one thing or another

It is impossible to believe that intellectual and .experien- tial qualities exist by some miracle outside his body.”

Leader said the office of President of the United States demands superhuman physical strength He asserted that it has been apparent in the last year that the President no long: er has this strength

Leader said the Democrats have a “good chance” to win the 1956 presidential election “for this time President Eisen- hower will be running as a politician, not as a great mili- , tenders

“Democratic Party leaders , who make the claim that theirs is the party of the common man are well aware that ours is a nation of great diversities and that there is no such thing as a common man in our midst,” the document said.

It said Democrats play on these diversities to make “dem- agogic appeals” to group pre}- udices and make any claims that promise votes

The booklet said Democrats complain of Republican use of| businessmen in Government al-| though Democratic administra- tions used big bankers, busi- nessmen and millionaires.

In the Senate, it said, are at least half a dozen multi-million- aire Democrats, It listed these as Sens. Harry F. Byrd (Va.), Theodore Francis Green (R. I1.), Robert S. Kerr (Okla.), Herbert H. Lehman (®. Y.), James E Murray (Mont.) and Stuart Sy- mington (Mo.).
