Bronson, Fayettevllls VOTE Somerset, Pa. - Iff) - The search of an isolated home occupied by a wealthy man--who even in death was armed with a gun and pro! tected by a fierce pack of dogs-' is almost completed today but un[ solved are these questions: Why did Samuel Jackson King live in such conditions while worth at least $88,000? And how did he save so much? Treasure hunters .who have j probed the debris-littered mountain farmhouse where King lived have come-up w'| nearly 518,000 in negotiable bonL.s, old curi^cy, gold and silver coins in addHion to bank books, safe deposit vault keys and real estate deeds indicating an estate worth approximately $50,000. These were tucked away in places like a sofa, cookie jar and a woman's corset. The whole thing started 10 days ago when King was found dead in a field, on his farm about 20 miles from this Southwestern Pennsylvania community. A week ago last Tuesday the body of the 73-year-old recluse was found by neighbors and police in the field. Nearby, lay King's favorite dog. "Israel." A loaded shotgun was at his side. Death was apparently caused by a heart attack, a coroner's report said. Sheriff Karl 1. H-.-e and his deputies found an ··· sofa inside ' the house where ''israel"^appar- ently slept. When it was moved, out dropped a false bottom revealing n sheaf of $1,000 bonds, with not a coupon clipped since 1934. Some $430 in $20 and $10 gold coins were found is a canvas sack. A rumpled roll of old large- sized currency contained hundreds of dollars in bills ranging* up lo IfvO. Two wills, the most recent of | which gives the farm and everything on it to a neighbor, Earl Gray, were discovered. Gray worked for years as a part-time hired hand for King. son. Refreshments were ;;ervcd by ! Mrs. Berry, assisted by Miss Ro- j berta Drake and daughter of Wyman, Mrs. Otha Caldwell of Fay- etleville, Miss Darlcnc Moore of Baldwin, and Miss Drake and Miss Berry.

Adv. for bj John Klrsch, r.rHtfvllle, Ark. In last-minute desperation, the McMath administration is causing state employes, including Weighing Station personnel, to spread the false and unfounded rumor that I oppose the existing reciprocal truck licensing agreements existing between Arkansas and bordering sister states. McMath claims credit for these agreements, but the fact is that they were entered into under the provisions of Act No. 6Q of th Acts of 1945 (Governor Lane's administration and not McMath's). I have never disapproved of this Statute, nor any of the reciprocal agreements entered into under it. L shall nqf propose any change in the Statute, and I favor the continuation of the existing reciprocal agreements made under it 6 This is not a political issue, but an economic issue. These reciprocal agreements for tri^ck licensing under this Statute promote the free flow of commerce, and benefit all the people of Arkansas. Th eleventh-hour attempt to inject this question into the campaign by secret false rumor, spread by state employees, is an act of desperation or a frantic, drowning man. Sincerely yours.
