The police visitors began to wonder about the nature of the f South Side home when they noticed presses and a paper supply. After moving Wake-' field to a hospital, Mrs. Ken- i nedy was asked about a back. room. She told the policemen I nobody ever went back there.' They kicked in the door and : there's where the money was.! "I never saw so much money in all my life," said Detective George Mertcs. Sirs. Kennedy sat in a chair and looked on, a dog at her side. Altogether, there were five dogs in and around the the house. Police also found five pistols and a rifle. But j mostly there was money. This money was in bags and! pillow cases and it was stuffedi in chairs and in clothing.! There was $160,000 in one bag.! The money was everywhere! but hanging from the ceiling of the room where nobody ever; went. And they took it to Kensington station and they found out it was genuine. Then, after about $500,000 was counted, the officers found out they had visitors. The Internal Revenue Service sent along observers. In stock reply to questions, the income tax men would say only that they were "interested" in the case. "We take cognizance of any case of this type," said E. C. Coyle, chief of the Internal! Revenue Service's Chicago of-! fice. It was learned that Wakefield last year paid an income tax of $3,800. To emphasize his businesslike nature, he paid it in installments.

Wakefield came to her South Side bungalow to live It was doubtful how much of a claim Jfrs. Kennedy would be able to stake on the money because Illinois does not recog nize common-law marriage Authorities said that she would be able to file a claim for having housed Wakefield through the years. Police stumbled onto thc i hoard Tuesday morning when 'Wakefield suffered a heart at 'tack and Mrs. Kennedy called ;for an inhalator. One of thc officers spotted coin wrappin : paper. ! The money—in denominations of SI to $100. plus coins—was found in a modest room of Lawrence Wakefield, a 60-year old Negro, who died following an apparent heart attack Wednesday night. His landlady. -Mrs. Rose Ken nedy, 60, said Wakefield had lived in her house for 30 years. It was Mrs. Kennedy who called fir medical treatment when Wakefield got sick Tuesday. Police who responded to her call for help became suspicious when they found what seemed to be policy wheel equipment on the property. Policy has been described as the poor man's stock market. It flourishes throughout Chicago's South Side. To play, all you need is a little change. You pick a number, give a man your money and he tells you if you win after a '•wheel" allegedly is rotated in somebody's apartment.
