Hiner Jr., longtime Washington bureau chief of The Indianapolis News and a correspondent for The Phoenix Gazette in 1956-83, was found dead Saturday in his home in Falls Church, Va. Hiner, 67, apparently died in his sleep Friday night or early Saturday. - Hiner began his career at The News in 1947 as a statehouse reporter. He covered the 1948 presidential campaign and was assigned permanently to Washington in 1952. His last column appeared in Saturday's editions of The News. Hiner was born in Astoria, Ore., on April 9, 1919, and moved to Indiana when his father became The World & Nation W.E. Chilton III, award-winning Republic Wire Services CHARLESTON, W.Va. - W.E. "Ned" Chilton III, publisher of the Charleston Gazette and an award-winning journalist, died Saturday of an apparent heart attack in Washington, D.C. He was 65. Chilton was pronounced dead at a Washington hospital after being stricken while playing squash, a Gazette spokesman said. The publisher was a crusader for liberal causes, and in 1982 he was presented the Elijah Parrish Love-joy Award from Colby College, a nationally prestigious award. Chilton served on many civic and education boards and was active in Democratic politics. An avid squash player, Chilton was ranked 34th in the U.S. Squash Association's 'singles category for men 60 and over. He was a member of the National Editors Advisory Board of United Press International. Born and reared in Kingston, N.Y., Chilton was a 1950 graduate of Yale University. He served in the Army and the Army Air , Forces during World War II. He was married to Elizabeth to show fails; 'author' is arrested Associated Press PORTAGE, Mich. - A smalltown dentist with no criminal record created a phony identity and wrote thousands of dollars in bad checks all, he says, to prove how ineffective police are in fighting crime. Instead, Dr. Victor Bigford wound up with a felony record and, perhaps, a stint in jail. "I guess I haven't proved as much as I thought," said Bigford, 55, who practices dentistry in the rural southwestern Michigan town of Berrien Springs. "I guess they can prosecute and punish people when they want to." Portage police say Bigford wrote $9,000 in bad checks last, year while using a phony identity, even fashioning a bridge of false teeth to alter his appearance. Bigford estimates his bad-check 'total at $5,000 and says he paid it all back. He was arrested Sept. 16 on a Remains identified; Phoenix man, 20, missing since '83 Skeletal remains found in the desert near Rio Verde on Jan. 2 have been identified as the body of a Phoenix man who disappeared four years ago, relatives and authorities said. James John Lake, who was 20 when he disappeared in January 1983, apparently was shot to death, said his mother, Joan Christensen. His remains were cremated Friday, and a memorial service was held Saturday morning. Positive identification was made last Tuesday, said his father, John H.Lake. Joe Rossano, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office, said James Lake likely had been dead for years. "To pinpoint it would be nearly impossible," Rossano said. "We're talking about old skeletal remains, old in terms of a couple of years. We called in an archaeologist, an .anthropologist and a forensic dentist in an attempt to establish his identity and to come up with clues in the case." James Lake was unemployed when he disappeared, Christensen said. He had been a machinist for the Garrett Corp. His body was found in a shallow 1 grave by a couple walking in the desert near Rio Verde, a Jpommu-nity about 10 miles north of Fountain Hills. publisher of the Rushville Republican. Hiner served as city editor of that paper and as editor of the Martinsville Reporter before going to The News. In addition to his work for The, News and The Gazette, Hiner was correspondent for the Muncie (Ind.) Evening Press.

Hiner is survived by his wife, Phyllis; two sons, Gregory and Bradley, and a daughter by a previous marriage, Carolyn Koons of Chicago.

Richard Finnfe; historian, expert on arctic regions BELVEDERE, Calif. - Richard Sterling Finnie, known as "Klondike Dick" for his expertise on the Arctic and northern Canada, has died at his home. He was 80. Finnie, who died Monday, spent 25 years as the official historian for the Bechtel Corp. before his retirement in 1968 and produced more than 60 films documenting the firm's international construction projects. He filmed refineries being built in Norway and Labrador and Alaska's first big crude-oil facility, at Cook Inlet. After his retirement, the native of Dawson City in the Yukon Territory lectured and wrote about the Northwest and Yukon territories. Among his books on the area are Lure of the North and Canada Moves North. Compiled from United Press International and the Associated Press. police flaws charge of writing a bad check for $267 at a Sears store. He eventually pleaded no contest and faces up to 13 months in jail and a $500 fine when sentenced Feb. 17. After he got caught, Bigford told police he was researching a book on crime called The Crook Book, said Mark Courtade, Kalamazoo County assistant prosecutor. "He brought a manuscript down," Courtade said. "It explained how to change a birth date, get a different Social Security number, things like that" Courtade described the manuscript as elaborate and said it seemed to have been worked on for a long time. But Courtade said that whatever Bigford's motives, the crime binge was not a harmless lark. Bigford did not reimburse store owners for the bad checks until the day after police told him that he was a suspect, he added. 807-Funeral Directors GREEN ACRES MORTUARIES SCOTTSDALE Morion, Dorothy: Pending Classifications 801 through 859 See Section CI for All Other Classifications 801-funeral Announcements BLOSSER, Alice Grace -For Information call Grim-thaw Bethany Chapel, 710 Bethany Home Road., BOYD, Cora - Arrange- Belhnv Home Road, GECKER,.

Kids taken from cult threatened Calls made to police, secret foster home United Press International TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -Telephone threats against six abused children taken from two members of a religious cult called the Finders prompted police Saturday to move the children to another location and place them under guard. A half-dozen threats were received Thursday evening at the Police Department and at the foster home where two of the children were being kept, police spokesman Scott Hunt said. The location of that foster home had been secret, and Hunt said he did not know how the caller got the phone number. At the request of the FBI, Hunt refused to elaborate on the calls. But he said the calls dealt with the children's safety. Hunt also refused to discuss the measures taken to protect the children. He said that tapes of the calls to the police station are being evaluated and that police do not know whether the calls came from a "local crackpot" or were tied to the Finders. "You never underestimate the power of somebody who wants to do damage to young children," Hunt said. "That we have had threats has put us on alert." The six children, ages 2 to 6, are in the custody of state health officials after the arrest of their two adult companions Wednesday. Health officials, police and the FBI are attempting to determine the children's real names and relatives. The two men, who identified themselves as Michael Houlihan and Douglas Ammerman, were arrested after they were seen in a park with the six filthy, poorly dressed children. Each is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. Police said one of the children, a 6-year-old girl, had been sexually abused. The two men and the youngsters have been linked to the Finders, a mysterious cult in Washington, D.C. Police suspect the children were turned over to the cult as part of their parents' initiation. Virginia State Police and Madison County, Va., sheriffs officers served five search warrants early Saturday in the area of the Pettie farm, a 90-acre property near the Shenandoah National Park. Owner Marion Pettie is reported to be the founder of the Finders. Evidence was seized and will be analyzed, but "no obvious new evidence of criminal activity was found," Virginia State Police Lt. J.P. Henries said. The Washington Post reported that a police search of a Washington warehouse linked to the group turned up large numbers of photographs, slides and photographic contact sheets. Some of the photos, the Post reported, were of children, some of them nude. The Post cited police sources who said some of the pictures were of children engaged in what appeared to be "cult rituals."
