Grand Prize NEW TRACTOR (Miniature) (No Purchase Necessary) Hopkins Ford Tractor Highway 460 East Attack Will Leaving King Fortune To Cop CHICAGO (AP)—A suit filed Monday asks that Circuit Court set aside the will of Miss Alice B. Atwood, an heiress to the vast King Ranch fortune in Texas who left her multimillion- dollar estate to a Chicago policeman. The suit, filed by Miss At- WQod 's long-time attorney, Thomas H. Fisher, accused the policeman and others of taking advantage of Miss Atwood's alleged senility. It said the policeman, Michael De Bella, thus ol )tained $62,500 in gifts during the five years preceding her death Dec. U, 1965, at age 85. Her estate is estimated at $1 to .^10 million. Attached to the complaint were alleged photostats of 31 checks — one for .$6,000, 27 for $2,000, two for $1,000 and one for $600. Many of them wore made out to De Bi^lla and most were countersigned witli his name. All were signed "Alice B. Atwood in a shaky hand, with the amount and payee filled out in another handwriting. The suit alleged that Miss Atwood was of unsound mind when she drew up the will dated Dec. 2, 1964, which leaves her estate to De Bella. It charged that De Bella influenced her to make the will and conspired with the Continental Illinois National Bank & Trust Co. and five of its employes to get the $62,500 before her death. The bank was conservator of her affairs and, along with the five employes, is among the 19 defendants named by the suit. The suit said the bank wanted "vengeance" against Fisher who was opposing attorney in two court cases that cost the bank large sums. The suit asks that the court set the will aside; that De Bella, the bank and its attorneys be restrained from "slandering the title" of land owned by Fisher and from causing embarrassing news stories to be written; and that they be prevented from seeking to force Fisher to persuade Miss Atwood's brother, Edwin K., to obtain a settlement of De Bella's claims to the estate. Thursday, Fisher appealed a Circuit Court order tliat he produce a number of documents ^ related to the Atwood estate. i Bank attorneys had contended the papers werie needed to determine the exact size of her estate. Fisher had made repeated pleas of faulty memory, Inability to find the papers or claims that he did not have to produce them by law. Postmaster William M. Lee of the Mt. Vernon post office today announced that henceforth all first class mail, personal sound recordings (voice letters) and parcels weighing 5 pounds or less and measuring not more than 60 inches in length and girth combined, will be airlifted on a space available basis between the United States and all military post offices overseas. Also, under Public Law 89-725 —The Dulski Military Mail Act— Which was signed by President Johnson on November 2, 1966, second class publication such as newspapers and magazines published weekly or more often, and featuring current news of interest to the military, will be airlifted from San Francisco to the armed forces serving in Viet Nam. Postmaster Lee explained that parcels weighing 5 pounds or less and not exceeding 60_ inches in length and girth combined, paid at surface rates, will be moved by surface transportation within the United States from the points of mailing to the port of embarkation. To speed up separation and delivery of these smaller parcels ; falling within this category, Post­ master General Lawrence F. O'Brien directed that all parcels be clearly marked upon acceptance at the post office with the letters SAM (surface air-lift mail). This will eliminate the task of reweighing and measuring the parcels at the San Francisco Concentration Center prior to dispatch to Viet Nam or other overseas military post offices. Postmaster Lee also reminded mailers that Christmas parcels weighing 5 pounds and under, though they are given airlift priority from San Francisco to Viet Nam on a space available basis, should be mailed no later than December 1, Air mail, he said, should be sent no later than December 10. The deadline for Christmas packages weighing more than 5 pounds going to Viet Nam and other overseas military post offices by surface means is November 10. BO,?rON (AP) — Treasurer Robert Q. Crane says Massachusetts has reduced its state debt to $989,146,000 compared with $1,025,577,000 on Nov. 1, 1965. (NBA Teleptaoto) MEET SANDV Roberts of Milpitas, Calif.
