Assignment: America Professional Photographer Says He's In Love, With Darkest Africa (K. a . u. s. rot. off.) j By PHYLLIS BATTELLE NEW YORK—(INS)—I've heard sad stories in my life, but none has quite touched the heart as deeply as Weldon King's. Weldon is a tall, handsome man, and he's.in love. "I.love her, that's for sure, but settling down is impossible," he says. "For one thing, she's miserably hot and offers any number of dangers. Why, the last time I sa her I got malaria and the tim beibfe that, blood poisoning. "A man can take just so much and then ..." By this time, you must have sur mised that Weldon King loves torrid dame with arsenic-tippe fingernails—which just shows ho\ silly surmising can be. What he in love with is Africa, land of th Mali Mau and home of the shrunk en head, from which he has jus returned with hundreds of colo photos and a mild case of tick bit fever. "Ridiculous, isn't it? She's nearl ruined rne a couple of times—yo should've seen the cobra tha nearly didn't get away—and ye I've got to go back." Next Januarj he will, for the fourth lime. King is a professional photo grapher whose works have appear ed on. the covers of most of th slick magazines, and his fascina tion for the Congo began at a early age when his father, a fore ign sales director for a large com pany, was the first man to cros Africa by car. Papa King brought back sou enirs to little Weldon; .spears knives, snake-belly drums :and s oh, and Weldon was enamored the whole idea. As he was not in lerested in geology, diamont mining, hunting or appearing "Tarzan" pictures, he p took up th one profession he thought migh get him there: camera studies. After a thorough briefing at th New York Institution of Photo graphy, he went to Africa—th first time in. '47. . "It was wpnderful," he remem bers. "That's where you learn th real meaning of live and let live Most of the people are friend! enough with you, if you're friend! with''them".'Even the animals wil not charge—usually—if you don' molest them."

Mechanic St. Formerly Garden Theatre Ray. dayman* Jones, Paifet ——~—r—— • When King says "usually," he is making a few minor exceptions. "The rhinocerus, for instance, will charge with no apparent provocation. Don't know where he got such a civilized man's flaw. "And some other animals are nervous. For instance, elephants don't generally pay much attention to you, but they will charge if (they're surprised. With their keen sense of hearing, the click of a camera is liable to startle them. This is somewhat dangerous." Weldon, who has clicked and run twice under such circumstances, knows. A native of Springfield, Mo., the photographer will spend a brief time at home before returning to his love. There is "no chance, none at all," that he will marry—as he sees it. "There are a few girls from time to time in Africa — people like Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner, making films, you know," he says coolly, "but they never stay very long. It's not a country for women. "But it sure is the country for me!" Trigger-Happy (Continued from Page 1) is "extremely • dangerous," is "known to carry firearms and is willing to use them." The" G-men added: "When drinking, he is most dangerous and is likely to shoot it out with anyone who crosses his path. He apparently disregards the consequences of his gun battles or barroom brawls." Kendrick, a native of .Washington, is believed to be from 55 to 58 years old. He is a heavy drinker, a lover of.steaks/an expert automobile driver and an accomplished safe blower, hijacker and stick-up man who, the FBI cautioned, is "quick" to pull the trigger. It added that "his underworld associates . .. reportedly both respect and fear him." The G-men said that one of his "closest associates" while they were both at Alcatarz during the 30.V. was Thomas James Holden, who made the "most wanted" list himself as its first entry. Here are other aides to identifying Kendrick: Aliases—John H. Diggs, John J. Dugan, John Henric, John Kendrick, John L. Lee, John J. Mur- >hy, John O'Brien, Frank Wilson and others.
