A U.S. District Court judge granted a habeas corpus mo- tion Wednesday, saying Sliep- pard didn't gel a fair trial in Cleveland in 1954. That was when he was convicted of sec- ond-degree murder.

Her father, an industrialist but now dead, was also the fa- ther of the late Magda Goeb- bels, wife of Hitler's minister of propaganda.

The incident occurred in th e Black Sea and the United States made a protest to Soviet author- ties here Friday afternoon. Tho protest was against what he United Stales called the "ex- essive behavior of Soviet au- horilies in handling Ihe case." Halted by Sliuls .After the grain ship, the S.S. lister Kalingo, of New York re- gistry, was halted by the three hots across the bow, it was )oarded by Soviet authorities. They searched it and ordered he captain to pay a 50-ruble ine (about before he was icrmitted lo continue his voy- age from the Soviet port ot No- orossisk to Istanbul, tile State Department reported. Officials said that according o the report of the ship's cap- ain, Artur H. Fertig of Wading River, Long Island, N.Y., the ship was stopped when it was miles from land. They said his put it outside Soviet terri- orial waters. Unacceptable Behavior A State Department state- ment said Soviet authorities 'may have been within strictly egal according to in .ernatidnal law, to pursue. >oard and search the Sister Ka- tingo, but the statement added: "The methods employed by Soviet authorities were axces- sive and clearly outside the norms of acceptable behavior." The department, based on Ferlig's report, said that the in- cident arose because of differ- ences in paying Russian steve- dores. Choice of Fee The ship, Fertig reported in Istanbul, had the choice of eith- er paying per hour per man Tor unloading Us cargo consist- ing of tons of grain, or to pay 50 cents per cargo ton. Fer tig chose the per hour per man rate. The Soviet port authorities op parently were not pleased by his choice and the dispute was re- ferred to the Soviet Ministry of the Merchant Marine in Mos cow. The ministry ruled that the difference should be arbilratec and that the ship should be per- mitted to leave after discharg- ing ils cargo. The local port authorities re- fused, however, to clear the ship and Fertig left July 15 without permission. According to the captain's re port the Sister Katingo was pursued by a Soviet patrol boal flying international signals with orders lo return.
