The "Forgotten Fortune" is in federal income tax re- fund checks which never have been claimed. The Internal Revenue Service at Los Angeles has an average of refund checks relumed each year, either because the recipient has moved and left no fir- warding address, or has failed to give a proper ad- dress on his tax return.

After 10 years, the file- are transferred to Washing- ton, D.C. A research crew from The Press-Telegram recently combed through the files for the six-year period 1952- 1957. They accumulated names of nearly four thousand persons who have refunds coming ranging from S10 to SI.815 and whose last known addresses were m thc Long Beach area. The "heirs" lived Hermosa Beach to Newport licnch and from Long Beach to Whittier. Beginning Monday, June 15.

Its successful test flights for the Army were dis- closed by Doak Aircraft Co. of Torrance, Sunday. THE CRAFT'S ability to combine the maneuvers of a helicopter and a conven- tional plane has been dem- onstrated at the big South- ern California test center, F.dwards Air Force Base. Here's how the Doak 16 works: The ducted fans on the wingtips rotate through 90 degrees. When pointed straight up, they lift the plane with no need for a runway. In the air, the pilot ro- tates the ducts forward and the plane goes into high- speed, horizontal flight. When he wants to land, the pilot rotates the duels back and the craft descends vertically. The first Doak 16 pro- duced has a wingspan of feet, is 32 feet long and 10 feet high. It carries a pilot and observer. THE ARMY is financing the current development be- cause of- its interest in the craft's possibilities for ob- servation and liaison. President Edmond R. Doak of Doak Aircraft, says he believes the plane, with longer range and higher speed than helicopters, will he useful for passenger and freight feeder-line fervice between small cities and major airports.
