(UPI) -'A team- of medical experts began an autopsy today on the body oJ a farm official Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman said took secrets of the Billie Sol Estes empire -with him to the grave. The body of Henry H. Marshall, 52, .was taken from a- sealed vault at a small cemetery . Monday several hours , after a blue- ribbon grand jury launched an investigation into his mysterious death almost a year ago. The question' to be resolved is whether Marshall shot himself five times with a single-shot rifle —or whether he was killed by someone else. A chemist, a ballistics expert and a pathologist-.from the Texas Department of Public Salety (DPS) said they would try to have a report by this afternoon. Orders Exhumation Dist. Judge John M. Barren ordered the body exhumed with permission from Marshall's widow. "The disinlerment could be the most important thing in this investigation," Barren said. "It will provide tile first accurate information about the course of the bullets and other factors." • Dist. Atty. Bryan Russ said today it is "rather unique" that Freeman has declined.an invitation to come before the grand jury and testify. He received ^a telegram from Freeman Monday which said: "We know of none here (in Washington) who have any firsthand knowledge (about MurshaU's death). We are continuing to check. If any names, are found we will advise you, as we want you to have our full cooperation in this matter." Closest To Case Marshall was the chief administrator and investigator into col- ton allotments in Texas. The transfer of cotton allotments is a big issue in the Estes investigation. Freeman had said earlier that Marshall was the only man who could answer some of the quastions regarding Estes' cotton allotment tnansfeis. Justice of the Peace Lee Farmer ruled that Marshall had shot limself, Sheriff Howard Slegall agreed, although he admitted that Marshall would have to put another shell into the chamber after each shot. Russ said dhat he hope's the autopsy will 'be able to determine he position in "which ,the gun was held by the 'angle that the bullets entered the body. This, he said, could well-be "a prize piece of state evidence" in the case. A Lifetime Income From Rental Business This product is needed in every home and requires little or no maintenance.

(UPI)-'Five soldiers-, died Monday when their ;ank tumbled do\*n a 30-foot embankment into a shallow creek, :anded on its top and burst into flame. Within seconds the M48 medium ;ank, sometimes called a "steel coffin" by the infantry, glowed red hot. The escape-hatch was jammed shut. The turret was buried in mud. There was no way r or the soldiers to get.out. The victims were not identified immediately. ' • • The accident was the second in five months at Fort Hood involving a tank. Last January a tank collided with a truck loaded, with soldiers. A.gas tank exploded and eight soldiers were fatally burned, several; others' injured. Looks For Cause An Army board of investigation set out today .to try to. find out what caused Monday's accident. "I cjin't understand it," said Lt. Col/ E, H. Kyle, public information oCEicer. "The tank was on a routine training mission. It was one of five operating as a platoon in a field, tactical problem. The tanks were operating on familiar ground," • . The training maneuver called for the tank, No. 215, to be under simulated artillery 'fire. So it had "buttoned . down" — closed its hatch. :The. tank driver is able to look out of the tank through a small isJit or a periscope. The ,,tank rumbled up to the embankment, plunged over front- end-firsit, flipped once and landed upside down on its turret. This radio antenna, was broken off, so the men inside were not able to talk to anyone outside before they died. Burns For Hours Kyle said it appeared ttiat this driver did not have time to turn 'off the ignition. The accident ruptured the gasoline tank and for more than an hour the tank burned furiously. It was another three hours before firemen were able to cool the tank enough for a "tank retriev 1 ' er" to snake a cable around the tank and pull it onto 'its side so the bodies could be recovered.
