"Rogers was very fine person and so was Senator Wallace," Edens said. "A thing like this just doesn't add up. Or rather, it adds up to one thing; only the appraised value for the properties, a total of $267,967, while the city is paying what the property owners are asking. The city agreed to this to avoid having to condemn the property in court actions after owners refused to sell at appraised prices. Among those from whom the city has obtained an option is Secretary of State R. A. Gray. He has agreed to accept $30,000, although his property was appraised at $40,000. Others who have given the city options are D. P. Yon, Mrs. Brock Wllharm. Mosely C. Collins, $35,000, and J. R. Harris, $40,000. TALLAHASSEE, June 11.

(Hap) Edens, Rogers' brother-in-law and one of South Carolina's top attorneys said today Rogers was "a very ill man" when he gunned down Wallace. He said the usually mild mannered Rogers "wasn't himself when the shooting occurred." That was the closest thing to a motive that anyone was able to provide.

UP) A tornado ripped through a mile-long area of El Dorado late yesterday killing 13 persons, injuring 57 others and causing damage estimated to total at least $2,000,000. The twister raked through a residential area on the southwest edge of town, leaving a swath four blocks wide and a mile long. The estimate of the loss was made by the National Board of Fire Underwriters. Quick Mobilization Residents mobilized quickly. Before midnight last night, bulldozers began pushing aside the debris. Much of it was piled for burning on the grounds of the Stanley School, in the heart of the devastated area. The school itself suffered heavy damage. A jam of sightseers, returning homeowners and friends slowed cleanup operations today. A temporary morgue was set up in the 4-H Club building. Eleven bodies were brought there. Five of the injured were still in critical condition today, Including an unidentified woman about 23. She was unconscious. Without Warning The tornado struck in late afternoon before a municipal warning system could be activated. The pre-arranged set-up, established this Spring, was to alert residents by sirens and radio of approaching funnels. "Yesterday evening, about 5:15, the police dispatcher called me saying there was a severe weather warning but no forecast of a tornado," City Manager Stanley Dial recalled. "When police tried to check with the weather bureau in Wichita, they were unable to get through. As a result, the system had not gone into effect." Spotted By Trooper It was about this time, unknown to Dial, that State Trooper Bob Lemon spotted the oncoming twister and started toward El Dorado, his siren screaming. He also warned police here by radio. But by that time the storm had already struck. "I had an uneasy feeling," taid A. W. Call. "I stepped out tonight at 7:30 o'clock.

Toland told the club that the Rent a Hertz track twhtrw tmiywe-ic'q fn turn etnd on my porch and watched the sky for about 15 minutes. I saw the funnel take form and start moving." Many like Call watched the menacing clouds. Most believed El Dorado to be out of danger when the storm passed to the northwest. Then the funnel dipped and made a right angle turn, back to the southeast. Tornadoes usually follow a southwest-to-northeast track. Residents had only five to 10 minutes to take shelter. As the twister touched ground it picked up speed, ripping through the southwest corner of El Dorado.
