OTHMAN - -.United Press -Hollywood Corrcs- , ;; · · . v pendent. · HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 14.--Succeeding in death what he had-attcmptcc in vain 1 for more than' ( two decades of. his iite, Clark Alvard at last gained the attention today of Miss Marion ravies,"mie~wbm"an~he'lo'vcd --from alar. Ho adopted the simple expedient of leaving the major portion of his small estate to her, and then clinched his plans by naming her as one of the executors. Her share Is approximately $10,000. Miss JDnvics, who is earning that same sum currently at Warne'r Brothers^for doing nothing while the experts Bonder her movie future, must help settle the affairs of her unknown lover in court and so will have stamped indelibly upon her mind--as he had planned it eight years ago--the fact that Clark loved her, even unto death. v iln 1916, Alvnrd was a middle aged fidld prospector in the Nevada desert. Ho trudged -10 miles into Las Vegas one Saturday to see a-movio." The picture happened to be the first that Miss Davies made. Alvard thought she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He wrote her a letter telling-her so. , : He got no reply, "but that did' noi halt his devotion to the young and willowy woman whose shadow had captured his heart. 'Through the years he made it a point, wherever he was, to see every picture in which Miss Davies appeared! Fom his shack in the wilderness he wrote her Jotters. He asked lor autographed photographs. He told of his admiration for her work and' even of his love for herscif. He expressed a desire to meet her. For years he never received a reply. Then, when the movie studios began hiring public relations directors, he got mimeographed notes - saying that Miss Davics, who couldn't possibly have read the thousands of letters sent her, appreciated his interest. The notes usually added that if he would send a quarter,.a picture of her would be forthcoming. Even this did not discourage Alvard. He sent his 25 cents and he obtained his picture,--by second-class mail. No word accompanied it from the .woman he .idolized, not oven an autograph. As the years passed, Alvard's hair grayed, but his passion · for Miss Davies continued. · Ho became- postmaster and general storekeeper In the tiny mining camp of Nelson, 20 miles from Las' Vegas, and still he wrote Miss Davics letters, always respectful^ even adoring. She never replied;' · In 1930 ho wrote his will with a hand more used to the pick than the, pen. He scrawled these words:..·_·;'· "I give'imd bequeath to my. -beloved Marion Davies all,my properly, both roal and personal, including 510,000 shares of South Eastern Mining; Company stock o£ El Dorado Canyonr-'Nev., she at oil times and her heirs to have all -full voting power of the above shares."

Guftcy not only is a "past master in boss control" but has repeatedly tried to Influence the "consciences and the votes of members ot Congress from Pennsylvania," Congressman Robert G. Allen of Greensburg, ."Westmoreland county's representative, charged in a statement here. · -. Allen's statement .was issued as a result ot -comment over an ailiclc appearing in a monthly magazine in which it was stated that Guiley exercises absolute control over Ihe 27 Democratic House members trom Pennsylvania. The Westmoreland congressman denied that he was under any one's "domination." "By his attitude." said Mr. Allen, "Senator" Guftcy places a penalty on any representative who votes according to his consciences or who exercises his best judgment in legislative matters. I feel that the people of my district elected me to exercise my own judgment and not to be a Charlie McCarthy for a senator. "The Guftcy system produces nothing more thnn the old Vare-Gruncty machine of Pennsylvania but with the Democratic label on it. The people of Pennsylvania have voted against such a political /system." Jury Finds Reformatory Inmate's Death Was Due To Excessive Tear Gas ®- By United Prcsi. HUNTINGDON, Pa..

Fortune performed an autopsy, West said, which revealed that La- Maurr suffered from no heart trouble and that a congestion in his lungs probably was the result of gas. West said that the physician who made the report ot a fatal heart attack was not attached to the industrial school and that lock of familiarity with the case probably wan responsible for the report.
