PETERSBURG (AP) Cause of a mysterious fire which virtually cremated 67- year -old Mrs. Mary Reeser in her apartment early Monday was still undetermined yesterday.

Coroner Ed Silk sent a burned carpet from the room to the FBI laboratory in Washington for examination. He signed a death certificate to facilitate burial, ruling it was an "accidental death by fire of unknown origin," but said the investigation was continuing. The charred remains were found in a chair in Mrs. Reeser's one-room apartment. The itself was burned to the springs, but curtains, sheets and newspapers were not damaged.

Paint on a wall four feet away was only scorched. Silk said he found a skull shrunken to the size of a teacup, a portion of vertebrae and a left foot wearing a suede shoe. He said he believed the ashes were those of Mrs. Reeser because the shoe belonged to her. "I never saw anything like it in 25 years on the said Chief Claud Nesbit.

Fire, Reeser weighed 170 pounds. She came here four years ago from Columbia, Pa. The owner of the apartment building, Mrs. P. M.

Carpenter, discovered the ashes when she went to deliver a telegram about 8 a. m. She said she found the door handle too hot to hold and called some house painters from across the street to help her. Mrs. Carpenter said there was no lightning in the neighborhood that night.

Police Lt. Arthur Bamond said an electric clock in the room had stopped at 4:20 a. but when he tested it later it was found to be in perfect working order. Fuses in the apartment were not blown. lair Revolt-Stirred Siam Believed Ripe For Reds BANGKOK, Thailandmilitary junta that crushed last week's revolt has seized power in Thailand, stirring up bitterness that observers fear may open the doors to communism.

These observers say three generals and an air marshal have made a figurehead of Premier Pibulsonggram, America's friend. The strong man of Thailand until the navy's attempted coup d'etat last week, Pibulsonggram lost face by being kidnaped. The four-man junta has stripped the navy power and the navy is bitter. Observers fear navy elements will be willing to play ball with anyone who gives them arms. That could be the Communists.

Already a anti American reports are sweeping Bangkok. The people are bitter about the wild shooting, bombing and shelling that marked the threeday uprising by the navy. The fighting took lives and destroyed property. The rumor-spreaders are say. ing "American guns killed our people." The United States has furnished military supplies to Pibulsonggram.

Communist ding could endanger U. S. efforts in pivotal Thailand. No. 1 man in Thailand is said to be Gen.

Phao Sri Yanondh, police chief. His 40,000 police are stronger than the army. Pibulsonggram raised from deputy to police chief after the revolt. No. 2 is Phao's father Lt.

Gen. Phin Chunhawan, commander-in-chief of the 000-man army. Air Marshal Fuen Ronapakat and Gen. Sarit Thannarat, commander of the First Army area, are the other members of the junta. There is some evidence that elements in the police, army and lair force began plotting In April to seize power later this year.

Service rivalry has been behind most of Thailand's numerous "palace revolutions," including the one that placed Pibulsonggram in power. Judge Sentences 'Meanest Man' PHILADELPHIA -(P)- William Compton, 26, was labeled "the meanest man I ever met" and given a 30-day prison sentence yesterday after being accused of goading a St. Bernard dog into attacking the seeing eye dog of a blind woman. "That will give you time to realize what a dreadful thing you did," Magistrate Thomas Costello said as he sentenced Compton on charges of breach of peace and disorderly conduct. Testimony at a hearing described how the St.

Bernard, owned by a friend of Compton's, attacked the seeing eye shepherd of Mrs. Elsie Northrup on a crowded downtown street. Mrs. Northrup said she was knocked over and that the dogs scrambled over her. 4p MAYBE HE'LL HAVE TIME LATER A GI casts a longing look over his shoulder as he walks patrol past an improvised bathing beach on the Imjin river along the western front in Korea.
