IN DEATHJSKED INTENSIFY SEARCH FOR WAR VETERAN'S SLAYER NEVADA CITY, Oct. Ifl. (U.R) — A coroner's jury today found that Henry I^ewis, LM, a south Pacific war veteran, died "by criminal means as sheriff's officers continued a search through the timber and brush covered hills east of here for William K. Kbaugh, 37-year-old bearded hermit, as Lewis' suspected slayer. Authority was added to the search by an additional recommendation of the coroner's jury that Ebaugh, who has evaded officers for the past 10 months, be brought in for questioning. Lewis' body was found Monday near an abandoned mine tunnel where Ebaugh apparently had been in hiding while sheriffs deputies sought him on charges of killing cattle. The coroner's jury formally decided that the death of JjCwis, recently discharged from the army jecause of battle injuries, was caused "by gunshot wound by criminal means by a party or parties unknown." Sheriff Carl Tobiassen abandoned hope of capturing Kbaugh by a mass search of the 25 square mile area In which he is believed to be hiding and declared that the hermit would blunder in his attempts to evade capture. Admitting the 275-pound "wild man," who has eluded- searching mrtlea hunting him for alleged cattle rustling; since last fall, could live indefinitely off the country, Tobiassen said "He would pick off half a dozen people in a search like that without getting caught," the sheriff declared. However, half a dozen* deputies continued to scout through a "5- square-mile nrea where Lewis' body was found Monday near an abandoned mine tunnel which Ebaugh evidently had used as a refuge. But Tobiassen pointed out the powerful red-whiskered fugitive could escape detection by men within a few yards of his hiding place. Storm Batters Chaotic Path Across Florida RAIN SQUALLS, HIGH WINDS LASH COAST; CROP DAMAGE SEVERE TAMPA, Kla., Oct. 19. (UPJ—A tropical hurricane battered a de- ftrnctivo path acress central Florida's rich citrus fruit belt today, causing heavy damage to crops, property and communications. Heavy rain squalls, riding the of 300-mlle-nn-hour \vlnds, lashed inland along- tho west Florida coast and moved north and northeastward toward Jacksonville, mowing down thousands of citrus trees. Damage to the crop was expected to run into millions of dollars. Jacksonville already was lashed by winds of 65 miles an hour and power had failed there. Torrential rains fell, and the weather bureau warned of high tides from Day- tonn Beach to the Georgia line. All shipyards nt the booming war center and military base of Jacksonville were shut down and city officials estimated 150,000 were off the job, boarding up dwellings and preparing to meet the full force of the blow. No loss of life had been reported in this area, although seven persons were killed yesterday and many injured as the storm passed over Cuba. Trgent warnings sent residents of beaches from Fort Myers to Sarasota, Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg to places of safety. Thousands residing along Tampa bay were sheltered last night and this morning in r'-ibllc schools and churches in Tampa. Miami escaped the full force of the storm but was swept by winds of 00 miles an hour during the night. No damage was reported either at Miami or Miami Beach.
