(Ar I'JOOIO) HOME OF SLAIN ACTOR Here is Castle Hill, motfntain-top home near Hollywood of Gaspar Bacon Jr., who died of a stab wound Sunday in a suburb of Los Angeles. Bacon Had Premonition of Death Long Before Murder HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 16 (UP) Three months before he was stabbed to death Gaspar G. (David) Bacon Jr., "masked marvel" of the movies, wrote a brief will in pencil, his attorney disclosed today. Police believed the will indicated that Bacon had a premonition of death long before, he was found murdered by a slayer who apparently left not a single clew behind. IAP WUi-lJlioto) police investigation of death of his brother, Gaspar G. Bacon, Jr. The will left his estate of "more than $10,000" to his widow, Greta Keller Bacon, a former Austrian concert singer. She was taken today to Presbyterian Hospital by her physician who believed the strain of the tragedy might caus epremature arrival of a child she expects this Winter. Atty. Joseph Scott said he knew of no reason why Bacon suddenly decided last June 14 to write a will which said: "I, David G. G. Bacon, sometimes known as Gaspar Bacon Jr., being of sound mind and body, leave all that I have in wordly goods to my wife, Greta Keller Bacon, including all my holdings in the J. Picrpont Morgan Company, the Guarantee Trust Company, Seaman's Institute of Boston, First National Bank of Boston, all cash in the Bank, of America, all real estate, and my house in Woods Hole (Mass.)." Bacon belonged to a prominent Boston family. He was the fifth man to play the role of the "Masked Marvel" in a series of screen thrillers, getting the part because the four previous screen heroes had been injured ac cidentally. Last month, associates recalled, when he left the studio he said: "I'd better look out or something will happen to me." COUNTRY FAIR Continued iromtihe First Page The Globe prizes are the largest ever offered to amateur gardeners in Boston s vegetable show history. They are large enough to attract topnotch professional exhibitors, but this show is not for them. Professional exhibitors are politely uninvited. ' , More than 100 prizes totaling upwards of $2500 in War Bond and War Stamp prizes will be awarded. They range in value from $5 in War Stamps to one prize of a $250 -War Bond. Five Display Classes Nearly one-half of thisnrize mnnov is concentrated in the five display classes where 13 War Bond awards ranging in value from $25 to $250 total $950. No gardener who has won first prize for a display or collection of vegetables in Horticultural Hall this year can compete in these display classes. Globe Garden Club members who have won display or collection first prizes in previous Horticultural Hall shows this year can, however, compete in the 32 specimen, special and canning classes where War Bond and Stamp prizes ranging in value from $5 to $25 have a total of $1380. The deadline for entries has been extended because additional room for exhibits has been made available at Horticultural Hall. There can be no extension of the time set for judging. Vegetables and canning exhibits must be brought to Horticultural Hall on Friday evening from 6 p. m. to 9 p. in. or Saturday morning from O n wsn 10 ft--wtfr Hffz-vf r C i V 1 s-v- nnssnr rv ii-m n n I O U . in. lu J Jiuuii, iviu.i i wl ijiv . r, . , wnuam o. cm4 entrants in the big prize money dis yesterday in Los Angeles . to aid play classes will probably want to set up their exhibits Friday night because of the time involved.

Stearns Bond Booths, Inside Both Main Floor Entrances R. H. STEARNS CO. Will Assist Exhibitors A staff of Globe and Horticultural Hall workers will be on hand at the hall Friday evening and Saturday morning to assist and direct exhibitors. Display class entrants must furnish their own decorations "out unlimited Quantities of white Paper. peat moss, water, tables, horses and benches are available for their use. The recently added Odds and Ends Class, which was not included in the original Country Fair schedule, may very well be the largest class in the show. Anything that grows in the ground in response to good treatment, sunlight, water and air may be entered in this class. It was created at the insistent demand of Garden Club members who had unusually good luck in raising vegetables. fruits, and flowers not included in the original schedule. They demanded a chance to show them off and there's no reason why they can't. The difficulties of judging this diversified group are obvious and the judges of this class should be more pitied than blamed. Not the least of the Country Fair's attractions will be the New England championship square dancing and prompting contests which will be conducted by Lawrence V. Loy of the Massachusetts Stale College Extension Service. Prompters are not as plentiful ns they were in Grandpa's day, but there are still a few left. All of those who can surmount current travel and occupational difficulties will be on hand Saturday afternoon and evening to chant their quaint calls to what promises to be a plentiful supply of dance teams. Each prompter will be asked to call one or more of the four "changes" which he submits. They may bring their own musicians if they so desire, but qualified musicians will be provided to play for prompters not bringing their own orchestras. Prompters not bringing their own musicians with them must submit with their application the names of tunes and copies of less familiar music as well as any additional instructions they desire regarding musical arrangements. War Bond and War Stamp prizes totaling $260 will be awarded in these contests. Applications for entry must be re ceived by the New England Championship Square Dance Contest, care the Boston Globe, Boston, Mass., no later than 12 noon, Friday. The judges: Judging these contests will be Prof. Harold Smart of Massachusetts State College; A. J. Brundage of Storrs, Conn., state 4-H Club leader for Connecticut; Garfield A. Woods nf ?Irrinf7fiplH nnrf TVTrc Willioi-n Crowley of West Springfield, a mem-'l ber of the lamed Storrowtown Square Dance Group. The elimination contests are scheduled to begin at 1:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The finals will get under way at 7 p. m. Between competitive dances anyone who cares to can take a fling at square dancing if they can find a spot on the floor. No Canoe Wanted Full of zeal, the Boy Scout was going from house to house selling tickets for a Warships' . Week concert. "How much are they?" asked one woman grimly. "Two shillings, eightpence and a shilling," was the hopeful reply, "Have you any at sixpence'." The Boy Scout replied coldly: "It's a warship we want, ma'am, not a canoe." English Clipping.
