2 April 5, 1947 U»son City Globl-Guetle. Ma»tm City. U HEIRESS FREE ON $50,000 BAIL Fiance Held Without Bail in Yacht Murder Santa Ana, Cal., (U.R)—Beulah Louise Overell, 17-year-old heiress, hoped to walk out of her lonely Orange county jail cell Saturday for her first taste of freedom since her arrest on murder charges 3 weeks ago. An uncle reportedly was arranging to post the $50,000 ball set Friday by Superior Judge Franklin West after she pleaded not guilty to the "time-bomb" murder of her wealthy parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter E. Overell, Los Angeles. It was believed that Miss Overell would not be permitted to visit her fiance and co-defendant, George H. (Bud) Gollum, 21, held without bail pending their joint trial May 26. Judge West set bail for Miss Overell under a California statute permitting ball for any crime not involving capital punishment. Since she is a juvenile, conviction would not carry the death penalty. "This is the most wonderful news I've heard," the girl said when informed of the bail. She is sole heiress to her parents' $600,000 fortune. States Attorney General Fred N. Howser meanwhile prepared to naine a special prosecutor to take over the case from District Attorney James L. Davis "in the interest of justice." Minnesotan Arrested for Careless Driving Following Auto Crash Austin, Minn., (ff)—B. E.

Eight persons were injured in the wreck, 5 of them still hospitalized.

Investigate Burlington Streamliner Derailment Chicago, (fP) —Four separate investigations Saturday sought to learn how a 14-ton tractor broke loose from its moorings on a railroad flat car and fell onto the path of a speeding Burlington railroad streamliner, causing the deaths of 2 persons as the train was derailed. Witnesses saw the tractor topple from a west-bound freight train a few seconds before the 8-car Twin City zephyr, bound from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Chicago at 75 miles'an hour, arrived. The diesel locomotive overturned, 2 coaches smashed^into the suburban Downers GroVe station, and the remainder were derailed. P. V.' Moulder, executive vice president of International Harvester Co., said preliminary investigation indicated the tractor was properly blocked when it left the Harvester plant, and that the car had to pass 3 separate inspections before the accident hap- pend. Seven of the 34 persons injured were still in hospitals Saturday. One of the oldest examples pf velvet is that of a 14th century embroidered cape in the college of Mount St. Mary, Chesterfield, England. BEST BETS ON KGLO-CBS DIAL 1300 M ...
