Swonger, 27, on Saturday. Crago, a neighbor and reportedly “good friend” of Swonger, said during the brief session in Northern District County Court, he did not want an attorney. Judge Charles Eckert held Crago to the Grand Jury and set bond at $50,000. He was returned to County Jail at I p.m. Judge Eckert said the maximum penalty for the count is “life imprisonment.” Crago, manacled throughout the hearing, wore a brown, wrinkled suit with a plaid Dover Police Sgt.

She told of setting a “watch” on July 5, 1963 on her daughter after she had heard rumors of improper behavior. Mrs. Shinaberry, who has IO daughters and a son, admitted that she and a son-in-law, Ray Prall, had watched from the latter’s trailer for several hours before Mrs. Clouse appeared on the street and got into a car which she said was driven by Dr. Alfonso Acietuna. She said she and Prall followed the car to Acietuna’s residence. Both the mother and Prall testified Mrs. Clouse later came to the Prall trailer to get her 17-month-old son. During that time they said she called the doctor and asked for an explanation but received none. Clair Hoffman, Mrs. Clouse’s attorney, spent most of the time checking the accuracy of the 2 witnesses’ story, emphasizing the point that neither had actually seen Mrs. Clouse enter Acietuna’s residence at the time they claim. Atty. Thad Bowers called State Rep. Jess Dempster of Uhrichsville to the stand as character witness for Clouse. Dempster rated Clouse as having a good and excellent reputation and being a dutiful husband. When asked by Bowers whether he knew anything detrimental to Mrs. Clouse’s virtue, particularly in 1959, Dempster said: “No.” nism to repudiate the Soviet premier’s leadership, Hungarian Premier Janos Hadar predicted Khrushchev’s visit will “improve the unity of the Socialist camp.” Informed sources report the Hungarian Communist party has voted for- V ^Weathervane YESTERDAY High 30    Low    21 THE WEATHER ELSEWHERE High Low Pr.

Khrushchev’s reply was formal and noncommital. “Our visit not only will be a cordial get-together of friends but a continuation of the extremely fruitful talks during the visit to the Soviet Union of the Hungarian party and government delegation last summer.” he said. Those talks, in July 1963, dealt with the Chinese issue. “It is our conviction that this further exchange of views with the Hungarian party leaders will be most interesting and fruitful," Khrushchev said.

It development that Crago, the tenant on the Streb farm where Swonger’s beaten body was found in a shallow grave inside a barn, had been picked up by Dover police Sunday morning, approximately IO hours before Swonger’s body was found. He reportedly had been held in Dover and County jails since that time and had undergone extensive interrogation. Although it could not be confirmed, it has been rumored that Crago made a statment to police. “I’m not sure if we have a statement,” Spies said at Dover police station today. Police would not comment if they had obtained a statement or possible confession. The murder weapon, police say, was found yesterday in the vicinity of the grave, but they would not elaborate or say what it was.
