Evidence Indicafes
Mrs. Durbin Knew of
U.S. Attorney's Plans
Indications that Mrs. Andrew
T. Durbin had been tipped off to
plans of the then United States
Attorney. Charles M. Irelan,
were revealed in court testimony
today.
Mrs. Durbin is on trial in the
U. S. District Court for the Dis
trict of Columbia, charged with
helping her husband flee Wash
ington to avoid testifying before
a grand jury. Durbin also is on
trial for the alleged flight.
$2.8 Million Fee.
The grand jury was investi
gating possible shakedown and
bribery in connection with a
$2.8 million fee paid Washing
ton attorney Ernest Wilkinson,
who successfully represented Ute
Indians in a $32 million lands
claim against the Government.
Earlier testimony at the trial
charged that a group tried to cut
in on Mr. Wilkinson’s fee.
During the curent trial, there
has been testimony that Durbin
received a telephone call from
friends in Florida, telling him of
obstacles being placed in the
path of legislation to pay the
$32 million claim. It was these
“obstacles” which the grand jury
was investigating.
Prosecutor William Hitz had
brought out that Mr. Irelan had
told him it was desirable to wind
up the grand jury investigation
by May 7. 1952, the same date
for which Durbin had been sub
poenaed, according to the Gov
ernment.
Cincinnati Woman Testifies.
Today, Mrs. Lyman Moody
Bolling Larkin, Cincinnati board
ing house proprietor, testified
that on May 7, 1952, Mrs. Dur
bin told her the date was the
last day of the “trial” and that
Durbin would not have to show
up for it. Apparently, Mrs. Lar
kin used the word “trial” for
grand jury proceedings. A date
on a subpoena would not indi
cate to the recipient that grand
jury action would necessarily
end on that date.
Mrs. Larkin described a flight
by the Durbins from her dom
icile after a deputy United States
Marshal had appeared there
early in May, 1952.
Nebraska Banker Named
To State Department Post
President Eisenhower today
nominated Samuel C. Waugh,
Nebraska banker, to be assistant
secretary of state for economic
affairs.
Mr. Waugh, 63, is president of
the First Trust Co. of Lincoln.
He has been with that establish
ment for 40 years. He has been
active in the Chamber of Com
merce of the United States and
the American Bankers Associa
tion.
Mr. Waugh succeeds Willard
Thorpe, who resigned.

Talk About Ghosts
Blamed in Killing
By lh. Associated Press
LAS VEGAS, Nev., May 25.
A 19-year-old Marine is expected
to be returned to Los Angeles
today or tomorrow in the slay- j
ing of a rancher found at the
bottom of a well.
Meantime, an autopsy is
scheduled on the body of the
Lancaster rancher, Joseph Wel
ford Cyr, 30, shot in the top
of the head.
The Marine, William Marion
Lawson of Campbell, Calif., “was
always talking about disembod
ied egos and ghosts," police said. !
Lawson was arrested here Satur
day night.
Officers Nelson Bishop, Wayne
McDorman and Ray Schaeffer
said Lawson told this story:
Six weeks ago he escaped from
a Long Beach, Calif., naval brig
where he was held after the
stabbing of a fellow Marine. He
met Mr. Cyr and stayed at the
latter’s ranch about five weeks.
Mr. Cyr, at the bottom of a
well they were digging Friday,
started talking about ghosts.
Lawson told him: “Shut up or
I’ll blow your brains out.” Mr.
Cyr started up the well, reaching
for a knife, Lawson said.
Lawson pointed Mr. Cyr’s .25
automatic, which he was carry
ing, as “everything went black.”
He heardthe gun crack and saw
Mr. Cyr still back, bleeding, into
the well. Later Lawson was ar
rested in a bar here.
