And Lumley said he has few clues o help identify the skeleton Crime lab tests indicate that the bones are those of a white man who was 50 to 65 years old when he was shot be!!ind the eye and near the ribs The -hooting apparently occurred between 30 and 50 years ago Lumley said he has no suspects in the shooting he Sessionses said their friend Fort Worth 400 W Seventh St Combining the Fort Worth Star (establis(led Feb 1 1906) the Fort Worth Telegram( purchased Jan 1 1909) and the Port Worth Record (purchased Nov 1 19254 the Fort Worth Star-Telegram CUSPS 206-2(0) is published daily Second-class postage paid at Fort Worth Texas Postmaster: Send address changes to Fort Worth Star-Telegram PO Box 1870 Fort WorthTexas 76101 Circulation: 2564'22 all day 349969 Sunday Customer Service: To ask a question about the Star-Tekgram or if you are dissatisfied with the response of another department call 390-7761 between 8 am and 7 pm Monday through Friday To subscribe: For home delivery in Tarrant County or to report a delivery probkm dial DELIVER (335-4837) during these hours: Monday through Friday 6 am to 7 pm Saturday anti holidays 6 am to 11:30 Sunday 6 am to 2 pm Outside Tarrant County call (8001 776-STAR a toll-free number Prices: 501? daily $1 Sunday By the month: llome Delivery Mail Affordable Elegance Classic Style Our Georgian Court collection's sophisticated style and traditional craftsmanship makes it feel like its been in the family for years But our Summer Sale prices will make you glad you waited until now to acquire it ' 0::4 4)'"'" :::'' k- I I 1(A ti ri 7r: rgt4VM :' fl:e ri 1 1 '1 I 31f ! tt -"'': :r 1 )1 4' —141r 1 s 1434 ft '7:'-7Z'' -4: it ' U P'0'!:- : is 1 '': 4 s"- '"4') : - ' ' i 4 - PH'? ir:''')1 12:: — k s ' $ - ' ' 1 i : 4 ) 1 g i' :?Itr“4AF'"i'14 Red ' tA ) "v i n : reg !::' : :: : i-' Can 't ''' ! -v e reg 10 7 oti Can I:1 reg 1 Palli 1 reg Brea ETHAN HOME LInnted wmranty tn Finn AI Irn Inc end !tTirmber 2111'442 633 NE Loop 820 HURST 595-0621 OR METRO 817-589-1382 HOURS: 10-8 MON—THURS 10-6 FRI & SAT CLOSED SUNDAY -5 0 LI Worth Star-Telegram Thursday AM gave them a shed full of tools and furniture as well as the trunk when he moved to Texas "He asked my husband if he wanted the shed and said he had a lot of stuff stored in it" Daisy Sessions said "He said he'd be back someday to get some of this stuff" The man did return to Wyoming a couple of years later and gathered some of his furniture but he didn't have enough room to pack the green Army footlocker the couple said Eventually the Sessions said curiosity got the best of them Clumps of dirt surrounded the bones and reports indicated that the skeleton had been buried before being put into the trunk Lumley said "It was a puzzle Why would anybody do that?" Daisy Sessions said "Any way you look at it it doesn't make any sense" Lumley said he has asked Tarrant County sheriff's deputies for help following the Arlington connection Because he has few leads he said he may give his information to the producers of the TV show Unsolved Mysteries Lumley said he is obligated by law to continue his investigation until he knows the bones are not those of a Hot Springs County resident "I told the man I'm not going to stop and I'm not going away" Lumley said "I'm like a bad dream I've got to get this done" Star - Telegram Fort Worth Texas 76102 Morning evening and wekends $1295 $34 Morning or evening and weekends 81095 re Morning or evening P495 Weekend only aay weekend lawkage and the holiday iasueiii 8795 — Sunday only (mail only( — $17 All prices include sales tax and postage Mail prices are for United States and possessions foreign rates available upon request Advance payment required for mail suleaription To reach the newsroom: Main number 390-7400 The Arts 390-7747 Business desk 31M-7729 Class Acts 390-7884 City desk 390-7410 Editorials 390-7754 Life 39()-7769 Metro ( from Dallas County ) 429-2655 To advertise: To place a classified ad dial 3:32-3333 during these hours: Monday through Friday 8 am to 7 pm Saturday 8 am to I pm Other departments: Retail advertising 390-7584 National advertising 390-7838 Arlington classified advertising548- 5454 Arlington retail advertising 548-5456 Northeast advertising 685-2:300 Rectangular table reg $1999 sale $1699 Carved Chippendale side chair reg $459 sale $399 Carved Chippendale armchair reg $599 sale $499 Palladian breakfront china reg $2399 sale $1999 Breakfront buffet reg $1599 sale $1399 ALLEN INTERIORS Manor House August 20 1992 Horrible scenes of starvation take devastating toll on Somalia BY GREG MYRE 'the Associated Press BAIDOA Somalia — A skeletal boy lies in the red sand of a refugee camp too weak to move to speak even to cry Only his blinking eyes give any hint of life Like so many others he is beyond help Every dawn finds new bodies in the dust of the hospital courtyard The scenes of horror multiply beyond imagination in this desert town 155 miles northwest of the capital Mogadishu It is an apocalyptic vision of the famine engulfing Somalia War anarchy and drought have put 15 million people in danger of starvation in this northeast African nation creating what has been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis Aid workers cite Baidoa as one of the most desperate areas of the country "It is a catastrophe The level of suffering is incredible" said Cristophe Serezu head of the International Red Cross delegation in Baidoa Hundreds of men women and children stick figures all straggle down a dirt road leading from deserted villages into Baidoa They pass a fly-covered corpse beside the road and pull their dirty ragged shawls over their noses to block the stench They avert their eyes trying not to look into the face of death No one can say how many people are dying in Baidoa But a survey of refugee camps aid agencies and the hospital suggests the figure is between 25 and 50 a day Aid workers say hundreds more may be dying in the brush and villages surrounding the town Baidoa has about 60000 residents about the same as when the famine began months ago But almost all the original inhabitants fled to Mogadishu seeking food Food began reaching Baidoa only two months ago through the Red Cross and the UN Childrens' Fund when clan fighting that had swept the area moved on to more distant regions That brought an influx of new people into the town from remote villages Many of them once were I: : : " : : r 1 4 I 1 - 1 11' '''"I : l':':::it f 5 r! f: : c ' ::: :!
