FOURTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Missing Persons File Offers Story Material SALT LAKE CITY—(INS)—The "missing persons" file of any city police department is chock full of better material for a, mystery than ten writers could dream up in a month of Sunday's. The great progress in scientific methods of detection, the advances in communication, the improved coordination between branches of the law and such organizations as collection agencies, all make it almost impossible for anyone to simply disappear, Most criminals, skillful, are tracked down sooner or later. But even in Salt Lake, a city of less than a quarter of a million population, more than 1,000 names are added to the "missing persons" list annually. Ail but a few, it is true, turns up again within a matter of hours, or days. Out of all the thousand, however, one, two, perhaps more, cannot be classed as routine cases. A husband, a son, is reported missing. A cursory investigation is *» v \, Wakes Up Appetites (RIVAL DOG FOOD volved Evan Richard Hendrickson, 13, and William J. Lehman, 47. The Hendrickson boy had a normal and happy home life. He was not In trouble, his health good. Yet, last Oct. 26, he left a used car lot where he worked part time, walked away and vanished. Detective Capt. M. D. McGlnness, after a full investigation, said that the possibility of foul play is the only theory which can be considered. But the best effors of his department have turned up no evidence of such a crime. Lehman's car was found Nov. 5 to develop a valid theory and the case remains unsolved. Amnesia? Murder? There's an easy $2,000 for anyone who can Brovide the answer. even the most made, wtih negative results. Then the full resources of the police are thrown into the search. Still—nothing. For all intents and. purposes, the missing man has vanished, utterly and completely from the face of the earth. There is no (trace, and what is still more baffling to the investigators, there is no reason, no motive for the disap- I pearance.

He had left his bride of six weeks to buy some groceries. He left behind his clothes, his money, everything a man would take if he planned to walk out on his marriage, a "poor man's divorce." Hendrickson and Lehman both, as far as police could learn, had every reason to stay and 'none to leave. One day, they were average, happy individuals, the next they were gone, without a clue. Will they ever be found? Well, an 80-year-old Salt Lake merchant, I. K. Ketchum, left by the same route nearly three years ago. Even a $2,000 reward, still outstanding, failed Expert Lists Facts Concerning Jel Engines BAST HARTFORD, Conn.— There is a way, at least theoretically, to reduce the weight of jet airplanes, says William C. Schoolfield, chief of aerodynamics at Chance Vought Aircraft. The pilot must fly at top speed, say about 690 miles an hour. He must maintain a constant altitude and he must head due east. If these simple directions are followed, the weight of a 25,000-pound fighter will decrease about 135 pounds, Schoolfield maintains. If a pilot could fly at about 16,730 miles an hour, his plane wouldn't weigh anything, he says. The reduction in weight is the result of a conflict between gravitational and centrifugal forces.
