Truman Estate in Probate ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 3. 1973 Page 3 INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — The will of former President Harry S. Truman, covering an estate estimated at some $610,000, was admitted for probate in Jackson County Probate Court here Tuesday. Probable value of the Truman estate was listed as $10,000 in real property and $600,000 in personal property. Court officials said an inventory of the estate is due to be filed in about 30 days. In the will, Truman also directed that the marker for his grave carry only the highlight dates of his life, although he once had joked he would be satisfied with the Tombstone, Ariz., epitaph, "He Done His Damndest." The nation's 33rd president, who died last week at 88, directed that the inscription read: Harry S. Truman . . . Born May 8, 1884 .. . Lamar, Missouri . . . Married June 28, 1919 . . . Daughter Born February 17, 1924 . . . County Judge Eastern District Jackson County January 1, 1925 . . . Presiding Judge, Jackson County January 1, 1927- January 1, 1935 . . . United States Senator, Missouri January 3, 1945-January 12, 1945 . . . Vice President, United States January 20, to April 12, 1945 . . . President, United States April 12, 1945-January 20, 1953. Truman suggested a similar simple inscription for his widow, Bess, 87, concluding with "First Lady United States of America April 1, 1945-January 20, 1953." The will provides that half of the estate go to Mrs. Truman as the widow's share; this includes Truman's personal effects, household and farm equipment. The other half would be set up in a trust fund to go first to Mrs. Truman and, at her death, to their daughter, Margaret Truman Daniel, and then to the four Daniel children. The document also makes bequests to 24 Truman and Wallace (Mrs. Truman's maiden name) nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces, and four employes. It also stipulates a grant of land to the Grandview (Mo.) Masonic Lodge as a site for a lodge hall. The will was originally drawn on Jan. 15, 1959 and amended twice - Oct. 23, 1961 and Nov. 4, 1967. It lists #18,005 in bequests, exclusive of the land for the Masonic Lodge. The four nephews and one niece of Truman and the two nieces and one nephew of Mrs, Truman will receive $1,000 each. Fifteen grandnephews and nieces will receive $500 apiece. One grandnephew, John Not Taking Advantage Of GI Bill for Education Ross Truman of Boston, will receive $5. John Truman said Tuesday the S5 bequest for him was the result of his studies at a St. Louis Jesuit seminary, with a vow of poverty, at the time Truman made the bequests. He has since left the seminary and entered law. Miss Rose Conway, Truman's personal secretary, will receive $1,000. Receiving $500 each will be three secretaries in the Truman Library here — Mrs. Anne Smith, Mrs. Frances M. Williams and Miss Mary Jo Nic. The will provides all papers and historical materials be turned over to the Truman Library, except for papers relating to business or personal affairs. Land mentioned in the will does not include the stately, century - old w h i t e Truman home here. That home, where Mrs. Truman was born, was built by her grandparents and remains in her hands. Only 30.6 percent of Iowa's returning war veterans since 1955 are currently taking advantage of the GI Bill for Education and Training— this statement of William Rauhauser, consultant, Veterans Education, in the State Department of Public Instruction. Rauhauser pointed out that a returning or returned veteran has educational benefits in the amount of one and one-half months for every month of service if less than 18 — and if more than 18 months service, a maximum of 36 months educational benefit is available. "The current bill was passed July 31, 1966 and was made retroactive to January 31, 1955. Any veteran separated from active duty after Jan. 31, 1955 and before July 31, 1966 is eligible until July 31, 1974 for college benefits and flight school training and is elegible for on the Job Training and Apprenticeship training, farm co-op and correspondence school until October 1975. Any veteran separated from active duty after July 31, 1966 has eight years from date of separation to use all his benefits," said Rauhauser. The World of o Glance Warplanes SAIGON (AP) — American warplanes hit the southern panhandle of North Vietnam with more than 120 strikes Tuesday and today, the U.S. Command announced. It also reported the loss of another fighter-bomber and two fliers in North Vietnam six days ago, raising the admitted total in less than three weeks to 28 aircraft and 95 airmen kilted, captured or missing. In South Vietnam, North Vietnamese and Viet Cong attacks doubled to their highest number in nearly a month. The Saigon command reported 81 enemy attacks, 57 of them by rockets and mortars, during the 24-hour period ending at dawn today. Surprise URBANA, 111. (AP) - Michael E. Murphy, a student at the University of Illinois, returned from holiday vacation to his campus apartment Tuesday to discover that his record turntable had mysteriously acquired some new companions, an amplifier and a set of speakers. A note with the new equipment explained how. A burglar had broken into the room and stolen the turntable. Later, however, the robber felt remorse and returned the turntable, donating an amplifier and two speakers to complete the set. "You can have the equipment," the note ended. "It's not hot. And have a merry Christmas." The note was not signed. Democrats WASHINGTON (AP) - Congressional Democrats have served notice in the strongest terms yet that they intend to cut off money for the Vietnam war as early as next month unless President Nixon finds a way out by then. Shortly after Speaker Carl Albert said Tuesday that he considers the House ready to join the Senate in voting to halt the war that soon, House Democrats approved a declaration of policy in support of a fund cutoff and immediate termination of all U.S. combat operations in Indochina subject only to release of American prisoners and safe withdrawal of U.S. troops. The 154 votes against the war In Tuesday's caucus, however, are still 64 short of a 218 House majority needed to approve any actual antiwar legislation. Name Baby LONDON (AP) - Model Jane Von Haag and her American husband, Michael, are naming their new son Crazy Horse. "Plenty of people have named their children after American Army generals," said Von Haag, a 29-year-old writer who came to live in Britain eight years ago. "I decided to call my son after a great Indian chief. Chief Crazy Horse of the Oglala Sioux aided Sitting Bull against Gen. George Custer and was killed in 1877. Crazy Horse Von Haag was born on New Year's Day. Price Is Right NEW YORK (AP) - The food was prepared in century- old fashion, but even better were the antiquated prices charged by the Old Homestead restaurant to celebrate its 105th anniversary. A "regular dinner" of sausages, liver, soup, half a pie and coffee cost 19 cents. Roast beef or mutton was 6 cents. The restaurant, which claims to be the oldest steak house in New York, estimated that it served 1,700 customers and lost $7,000 to $10,000 Tuesday night. Herman Firks, the head waiter, said he saw at least two parties slip out the door without shelling out their 19 cents. No Draft WASHINGTON (AP) - Induction orders are to be canceled for draft-eligible men who were left over from the 1972 draft pool and have induction postponements due to expire in January or February. They still could be drafted in March, however. Daniel J. Cronin, deputy Selective Service draft director in charge of operations, said Tuesday the action followed the decision not to issue a draft call during the first two months of 1973. When there have been no draft calls in the past, practice has been merely to extend the postponements month by month. But Cronin said Selective Service wishes to remove the "uncertainty of a draft order" for the 1972 group. He «aid the men will be placed in an extended-priority group and would be the first called if there is a draft call in' March. But if there is no March draft call, all 68,000 in the extended-priority group will no longer be eligible for the draft.

Commission Acted Illegal CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP)— Linn County District Court Judge William Eads has ruled the Cedar Rapids Human Rights Commission acted illegally when it ordered local school officials to alter their maternity leave policy to ac­ comodate two teachers. Judge William Eads Tuesday dismissed a suit brought by the commission against the school district. The two teachers, Joan Parr of Iowa City and Judy McCarthy of Alburnett, had been dismissed because they failed to qualify under maternity leave regulations. Mrs. Parr and Mrs. McCarthy filed sex discrimination suits with the commission, which ordered their reinstatement and payment of back pay. The commission sued the school board and the board filed suit to enforce its decision. Judge Eads agreed with the board that the commission was exercising authority reserved to courts of law when it ordered reinstatement and back pay. iilninliimiiiiuiiniiniimiiiimiiiiiimiiiiii Built with two fiber glass belts PLUS two plies of smooth riding rayon cord.
