By MOLLY BURRELL A decade ago, San Benedicto Island l o o k e d as though a chunk of sterile l u n a r l a n d s c a p e h a d dropped into the Pacific Ocean. The island off the coast of Mexico, seared and cinder-covered by a volcano to which it suddenly gave birth, appeared devoid of life--both animal and vegetable. But a 10-year ttudy by an Orange State College professor at Fullerton has shown the island to be an example of the mysterious, miraculous way in which nature regenerates the life she has destroyed. Dr. Bayard Brattstrom. 34, associate professor of zoology, since August 1952 has been compiling a vast array of scientific data on the uninhibited i s l a n d which was buried under a layer of pumice, ash, dust and lava when the volcano Barcena erupted. The island is 200 miles south cf the tip of Ba}a California. Dr. Brattstrom has charted rates and types of growth for plant and animal life which is again slowly developing. · * · · V A L U E OF SUCH a study might be its use as a reference in future catis trophies -- natural or manmade. The eruption on the island began Aug. I. 1952. and continued intermittent ly through February 1953. The U. S. Navy made nu merous aerial photos durin; the r.ext month w h l c n showed the island smothered with a layer of ash and dust A new land promonotory had appeared.

SHE''Ii\VKSTKIV HE WAS WHEEL 'MANAGER' Policy Gamblers' Companion Plans Fight for $800,000 Hoard of Cash By ROBERT GOLDSTELV CHICAGO W) -- A fuD- fclown If£il battle shaped j up Friday for the $800.000 hideaway fortune of a dead policy - wheel o p e r a t o r whose piachpenny mod* of operation escaped the attention of crime-syndicate gamblic; bosses. The cash hoard was found Wednesday eight in a bedroom of the modest South Side bone shared by the late Lawrence Wakefield, 60, Negro policy- wheel operator, and Mrs. Rose Kennedy, G6, a white woman who said she had lived with hid since 1937. Mrt. Kennedy, who never left the money out of her light during the IS hours that crews cf policemen counted it bin by biQ aad coin by coin, indicated the would try to recover the entire amount. T h e Internal Revenue Service slapped a $102,000 lien on the money for back income taies. Gerald Mannix, assistant state's attorney, appeared probate court Friday in behalf of Cook County (Chicago). He said if no known heirs are found the county will be the official claimant. The fortune was discovered after Wakefield suffered a heart attack Toes- day night and Mrs. Kennedy summoned a police mhalator sqiud. A sharp- eyed patrolman spotted a bag of currency and a policy slip and notified his superior!. After Wakefield was removed to a hospital where he died the following night. Police raided the home and found money in 32 sacks, boxes and bags in the bedroom. Mr». Kennedy told policemen $160,000 of the money belonged to her and her husband, a Canadian Carobler who came to the United States with her in 1929 and died several years liter. Although Illinois does not recognize common-law unions as ground* for inheritance claims, Mrs. Kennedy and her newly retained lawyer, Norris J. Bishton Jr, indicated they would try to jet the entire fortune. Mrs. Kennedy told newsmen she and her husband invested 32 years ago in the Night Owl and Speedway policy wlieels which Wakefield operated at the time of his death, and merely hired him as their manager. She has been charged with possessing gambling equipment In addition to $763.223.30 found in the home. police discovered J 15,825 in government E bonds, bank books showing total deposits of around $50,000 and slips to safety-deposit boxes in five backs, including one in Detroit and another in Gary, Ind. Police said crime-syndicate l e a d e r s apparently were duped by Wakefield** modest methods of operation and didn't feel it was worth the effort to "muscle in." l His fortune, hidden away in his home, was a secret. Wakefield five the impression of barely surviving, depending on the goodwill of a few friends who bought his policy slips daily. Mrs. Kennedy wore a babushka and old clothes and Wakefield made his contacts in a 1953-mode! car. With handmade presses, Wakefield printed his own policy slips.
