- J J J 10 THE COURIER-JOURNAL, LOUISVILLE, KY SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 23, 1949. SECTION 1 - V Hoosier Family Missing Since Jan. 7 Is Sought English, Ind., Jan. 22 (AP) There was considerable speculation in this Southern Indiana community today over what has happened to the Vandiver family of three. Marcus O. Lane, Crawford County sheriff, said he has been unable to find out what had become of the family, last seen by a neighbor January 7. The missing family consists of Thomas Vandiver, 30-year-old World War II veteran; his wife, Beatrice, 44, and the wife's daughter by a previous marriage, 17-year-old Wanda Johnson. The Vandivers, both previously divorced, were wed last August, the sheriff said. He added he had obtained this information about them also: After their marriage they bought a 40-acre farm near Mifflin, a town eight miles southwest of here. The property was purchased at a delinquent-tax sale. Lived With Neighbor. In December the small home on the farm burned and the Van-divers went to occupy a room in the home of a neighbor, William D. Messamore. Messamore told him, the sheriff said, that he returned January 8 from a trip to Louisville and found the Vandivers had gone but had left most of their clothing behind. While looking about the Messamore home the sheriff said he found in a shallow grave the body of a dog which neighbors said had .belonged to the Vandivers. The sheriff quoted Messamore as saying he shot the dog "because it howled." 2 Checks Unclaimed. Adding to the mysterious disappearance, the sheriff said, are two other unexplained circumstances. One is the failure of Vandiver to claim two $20 unemployment-compensation checks. Notice that one of the checks was ready for him was found in his rural mail box with some other mail. The other was his failure to pick up at the Courthouse a duplicate deed to his farm property which he had requested when the original deed was lost in the fire. Notice that the duplicate was ready had been given Vandiver, officials at the Courthouse said. Sheriff Lane said he had been informed the Johnson girl might be located at New Albany but so far he had found no trace of her there. Pennsylvania Woman, 111, Predicts Truman to Make Good Hazleton, Pa., Jan. 22 (JP) Mrs. Mary O'Neill prepared to celebrate her 111th birthday anniversary by making a prediction about President Truman today: "I think he's going to make good," said Mrs. O'Neill, who lives on a mountain called Stone Crusher Hill. Since her last birthday January 26, 1948, the spry little old lady made her first trip down Stone Crusher Hill in two years. Little Rock Fire Guts Downtown Building Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 22 (JP) A spectacular fire tonight gutted a three-story building on Main Street and for a time threatened a major block in the downtown business section. Fire Chief Gann Nalley estimated the damage at $300,000. She went down the mountain to see a new baby at the Ralph Cragle home. About the President, Mrs. O'Neill also observed: "There's a man that fooled 'em. He's a fine man and capable of leading us to peace." Mrs. O'Neill's eyesight isn't quite as good " as it was a year ago she can't thread a needle any more. But she doesn't wear glasses never has. Though she lives with her granddaughter, Nancy O'Neill, Mrs. O'Neill still bakes bread and does other household duties. 3 Face Gambling: Charges.

Associated Press Science Editor. New York, Jan. 22. An acid with a long name was identified today as the carrier of heredity for you, your dog, your house plants, or anything else that lives. This acid forms a large part (25 to 40 per cent) of the invisible threads the chromosomes governing heredity. 1st Positive Link. The identification was reported by Dx. A. E. Kirsky, of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, at a meeting of the American Chemical Society's New York section. The acid is desoxyribonucleic. It had been suspected as the carrier, but today's report to the chemical society says this is the first positive identification. The acid differs from person to plant or animal apparently only in amount. Some species have more of the acid than others. The other chemicals composing the heredity governors are un known. But In some manner their combination with the acid is the reason why you are a human being and why a dog is a dog. Every tissue cell in a living body contains a set of these acid threads. Damage, which breaks the threads, causes mutations in heredity, provided the damage is done in sex cells. The heredity carriers in sex cells are the same as those elsewhere throughout the body.
