On his 45th birthday, Sept. 28. Field ' is to recieve from the estate of his | grandfather S3.000.000 in cash, and ac- cured which may amount to S90.000.0W. That day he will also begin to receive the annual income from the estate, around $20.000,000. Five years later Field will inherit the entire estate, conservatively estimated at 3200.000,000. He will then hold ix!rhaps the largest personal c\s- tete in the country. Marshcll Field, founder of the Chicago department store bearing his name, died in 1906. Th estate was left in an elaborate trust which immobilized by law. In 1920, Marshall Field III tried to break the will, arguing that it was contrary to public interest to tie up so large a fortune. The courts refused to break the will and the million dollars the lawers dragged down never dented it. Income simply piled up in trust. Fought Marshall Field II is sole heir to the fortune. His brother Henry, who was to have a shared it, died of illness incurred while with the British army during the World War. He enlisted as a student in England. Marshall III enlisted in the United States Army as a private.

Endorsed Roo^oveK In 1927 the Field estate had begun a • $(,000,000 low-cost housing project for Chicago.
