Then the show died in 1956, a year before the Russians launched Sputnik and began the space age for real. Hodge's acting career nearly died with it. When the 66-year-old actor was discovered dead Monday in an East Side hotel room, investigators found suitcases full of old fan letters and press clippings. A stack of actor's resumes, dated Feb. 18, 1976, read: "1962-Pre-sent: Inactive while engaged in other pursuits." His body lay unclaimed in the morgue for several hours until authorities reached his relatives. Like George Reeves, television's Superman, Al Hodge was-typecast. He could never separate himself from the role that made his face familiar to the American public. Captain Video propelled his career and ultimately consumed it. "When I go after dramatic parts, they say my Captain Video identification would destroy character illusion," Hodge' once said. "When I look for jobs to do commercials, they say: 'Whoever heard of Captain Video selling cigarettes?'" After the show was yanked from the air, few roles came his way. He moved to California where he picked up small parts in "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "Tightrope" and"Hawaiian Eye" before returning to the East Coast to work briefly as host of a shortlived educational program called "Space Explorers." After that, he drifted from job to job. He sold real estate and gloves, then lectured to earn money. For the last four years he lived in Room 322 at the George Washington Hotel, with its bright yellow walls and black doors and plaster peeling from the ceiling. Among his other memorabilia, the hotel manager found a trophy honoring his eight-year performance as the Green Hornet on radio. A woman he had been dating he was married and divorced three times died recently. A friend, Jack Dempsey, said: "He told me she died in his arms and that he never thought he would take anything so hard." He suffered from emphysema and cataracts. The medical examiner said he died of natural causes. His daughter, 37-year-old Diane Johnson of Cincinnati, said her father's fleeting fame had disappointed him but never made him resentful. "I think he felt it was just typical of show business," she said in a telephone interview. "He was a very intelligent man." Funeral arrangements were incomplete, she said. Hodge is also survived by his 88-year-old mother, Jessie. where friends may call an hour before the services. Burial will be in Bridgeville Cemetery. Instead of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Sussex County Heart Association, Railroad Avenue and Depot Street, Georgetown. Lillian D. Woerner Lillian DuRoss Woerner, 79, of 1078 Bear Road, New Castle, died in the Delaware Division Tuesday after a short illness. Mrs. Woerner's husband, Charles P. Sr., died in 1964.

Jr., both of Bear; three daughters, Charlotte Foley and Marie Souder, both of Bear, and Caroline King of Llangollen Estates; three sisters, Olive Thornton of Graylyn Crest, Marlene Ryan of Hockessin and Jeannette Foley of Glen Burnie Estates, 25 grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren.

Pastor jailed as a Nazi dies in Pa. PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A German-born minister convicted as a Nazi spy after the U.S. entry into World War II and later pardoned by two presidents has died at the age of 83. Funeral services are scheduled tomorrow for the Rev. Kurt E.B. Molzahn, who protested his innocence throughout his trial and for years afterward. He died Sunday. Molzahn was arrested by federal authorities in June 1942 at the parsonage of the Old Zion Lutheran Church, where he was pastor. He was accused under the Espionage Act of 1917 of being part of a network of spies giving U.S. secrets to the Axis powers. He began his American career in the early 1920s as a professor at Susquehanna College and then served as pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Johnstown, Pa. He went back to Germany in 1927 to serve as pastor of a church in Erfurt, returning to the United States a year later to take on duties at Old Zion. In 1931, Molzahn went on Philadelphia radio with the German Lutheran Radio Hour, which was broadcast weekly until his arrest. The programs stressed the unity of American and German veterans of World War I and the parallel goals of the two nations. While Molzahn emphasized in the radio shows that he was not a follower of Adolf Hitler, he frequently praised the Nazi leader as a good man and a buttress against the communists. Molzahn said at his trial: "I acknowledge but one fuehrer and one leader Jesus Christ." He served "LVi years of a 10-year sentence at Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary and was released in June 1945 after President Harry Truman signed a pardon, issued for reasons never made public. He returned here immediately and became pastor of St. Michael's Lutheran Church, where he continued to profess his innocence from the pulpit and through his book, "Preacher in Prison." President Dwight D. Eisenhower granted him an unconditional pardon in 1956. The Morning News, Wilmington, Del., Thur., March 22, 1979 Maurice E. Sturgis Maurice .

In a Superior Court suit against Wilmington's mayor and city council, Robert Sheraton says that firefighters failed to do the job when they answered an alarm Aug. 30 at the house he owned at 31 W. 20th St. Fire Co. No. 1 responded to the blaze, but the fire was "improperly extinguished" and erupted again, requiring Fire Co. No. 10 to come and put it out, the suit says.
