A18 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 12, 1976 Most of Stolen Radium Recovered health department's radiation protection division, drove around with a wide area gamma surveillance tool and saw it indicate radiation was present in a northeast area. He found five tubes and the safe in a yard. The helicopter search began yesterday. McHard said he did not know if the burglars learned through the publicity about the incident that they had stolen radium. "I feel they were probably after narcotics or money and probably didn't realize radium was in the safe, but what has happened to the radium since it was removed from the safe is just conjecture on my part," McHard said. OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI) -Searchers found seven radium needles and four tubes containing radium in a vacant lot on the northeast Do Those $5 Bills Look Odd? COUPON SPECIAL side of this city yesterday, nearly completing the recovery of radium stolen from a doctor's office last week. One tube of radium was still missing, said Dale McHard, chief of occupational and radiological health service of the State Health Department. "The helicopter-borne equipment located the hot spot at NE 10th and Walnut. Ground crews checked it out and we found three lead containers," he said. One lead container was open and empty, and he speculated the missing needle had been inside. Health department workers checked the other two and found the radium. The 10 tubes and seven eedles of radium, used to treat cervical cancer, were in a safe stolen from the doctor's office Thursday night. Some of the radium was discovered Friday. Robert L.

LOUIS (UPI) - Much to the delight of the world's numismatists, the Bureau of Printing and Engraving in Washington has made another colossal blunder. Only two months ago, the bureau turned out up to 2,000 $1 bills with the serial numbers, Federal Reserve bank seals and Treasury seals printed upside down. Barry W. Faintich, owner of three St. Louis currency shops, said yesterday the bureau has done it again, this time with $5 bills. Faintich was contacted Friday by a teller at the Lindell Trust Co. who had seven $5 bills with the serial numbers and seals printed upside down. Faintich paid $100 apiece for four of the bills and said the teller gave the other three to friends. Faintich believes there may be 112 oddball $5 bills. He said the bills are printed in sheets of 16 with the serial numbers and Treasury and Federal Reserve seals added in a separate step. From the serial numbers of the bills he has, Faintich said they must have been cut from seven different, but neighboring, sheets. Seven sheets, times 16 bills to a sheet, equals 112 funny fives. "We called the foremost mint-error collectors in the country and they all offered to buy but none would quote a price," Faintich said. "We can't estimate the real value of the inverted fives until we find out how many were printed," he said. "These are the first that have turned up." Vagrant Dies After Surgery. CHICAGO (UPI) - - Thomas Harriston, the vagrant whose arms and legs were frozen solid when he was locked for six days in a freight car, died during emergency surgery yesterday. A spokesman for the Veterans Administration Hines Hospital said severe "toxicity" made it necessary to amputate both legs during the afternoon. Harriston, 27, suffered a heart attack during surgery, was resuscitated, but suffered a fatal attack after the surgery. The Seattle, Wash., resident was found Dec. 3 in a freight car on the South Side of the city. He had hopped a freight in Seattle for a 150-mile trip to Portland, Ore., but ended up on a six-day, 2,000-mile trip across the Rocky Mountains and the northern plains to Chicago. He was conscious when found, but both his arms had frozen below the elbow and both legs had frozen below the knee. He was transferred from Holy Cross Hospital to Hines Tuesday. Funeral arrangements were incomplete .

It's only a coincidence that everyone over the grade of sergeant is a Republican"; Michael Koleos "I have a telegram for the sheriff. It reads: 'Just heard you're out of a job, like us. We'll be passing through Palm Beach County in a few weeks and we thought you would like to ride along with us. Signed, the Outlaws.' " Heidtman, in his comments, said he leaves office "with a great deal of pride" in creating "one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the country." "Some of you in the Sheriff's Office can remember when, back in the earlier 1960s, you were ashamed to be recognized as a deputy sheriff in this county. Through determination to raise equipment standards and salaries, all policemen in the county and law enforcement agencies in this state have benefited." Heidtman said it is his "sincere hope" the new administration will continue to expand from what has been built in Palm Beach County. "As to myself and Jean (Mrs. Heidtman), we have not finalized any plans, but have many things we are considering. We look forward with excitement and optimism to our future. God bless all of you."
