last Friday after an illness of several years The will was a three-page document In which the actor told of a rift In family relations which never canted from the day he chose a career that conflicted with his pareuts' wishes It drew a lengthy tale from the nephew of a secret heart-ache which the famous smile of the actor never betrayed "It all goes back to the past genartifices" Higgins said "I do not believe Theodore's will is Intended to cast Imputations upon those who are living today "I like Theodore left the nest early in life and the things that we both have known among our familien have not always been pleasant "Theodore's mother wanted him to enter the ministry while his fattier felt that his son should learn a trade preferably navigation They lived In a great old Louse in San Francisco then and the family was wealthy Theodore's wish to go upon the stage was a shock to his parents and they protested but the son was resolute and when but a boy he left his home "That was the first of a life of family unhappiness The second in stance came some years later when the father once a wealthy man grew old and his fortune dwindled There was a brother Martin Martin had not the capability of Theodore and Theodore felt that if his father's estate was left in his own charge be (mold gather the frag tents together and possibly rebuild it for all of the family "This proposal lie 'made to his father and I understand it the the agreement was reached that The-adore should administer the cctate Theodore was fairly successful now and the scope of his talent began to shape up Ile went away from the family home In San Francisco and I imagine they didn't hear from him very frequently Anyway when the fattier died his entire estate went to Martin and Martin In the years that followed lost the remainder of a once comfortable fortune "The disinheritance was a great dis4pointment to Theodore who suffereC as his parents had when he left home The differences were Irritated over other minor things but these two stood out "An unhappy marriage which ended when Theodore spent Eix months in the old Ludlow Street jail in r-ew York because he cefused to pay alimony added to his life's sorrows "When his mother passed away and all of her personal effects were kept from him Theodore's bitterneas was acce—hted "i himself had long been successful by that time and money meant little It was the loss of the family ties that hurt around the whole family circle" ' Higgins will remain in Los Angelo until the late actor's affairs are closed FRIDAY WAS SHORTEST DAYLIGHT DAY OF
