FORGOTTEN FORTUNE U. S. Checks Await Those Listed Here Thirty-four persons listed today in The Press-Tele- gram's "Forgotten Fortune" column apparently moved soon after filing their federal income-tax returns. They failed to file new addresses with the Internal Revenue Service. Their refund checks at that time could not be forwarded, thus wound up in the IRS "dead letter" office. The years passed. Not one ever has contacted IRS to determine what happened to his check. INSTRUCTIONS If your name appears in today's list, DO NOT Internal Revenue Service (Refund Dept.) 312 N. Spring St. Los Angeles, Calif. Write a letter provid- ing enough information to properly identify your- self as the person to whom a check has been issued but never de- livered. The information should include the ap- proximate amount you believe is owed to you, your Social Security number, an old bill or statement giving your name and address the IRS last had for you and, if possible, a carbon copy of your return. Also give the year un- der which your name ap- pears in the lists. Queen, Philip Fly in for Canada Tour ST. JOHNS, Nfld.

Brown's victory in put- ting his water plan through the Legislature. The governor and his well- organized staff worked both out in the open and behind the scenes to find a success- ful key to the nagging water problem. It all ended triumphantly Wednesday. The Assembly's 50-30 vote gave final passage to a bill committing the state to a giant, 50-year water as big as Cal- fornia itself. BROWN, elated, declared the proposed I %-billion-dol- lar bond issue -was a "guar- antee of the future prosper- ity and growth of all Cali- fornia, north ant] south." The fight isn't over, though Another big test comes in No vember 1960. It will be up to the voters to say yes or no to the bond ev er to appear on the California ballot.

In 1928 a New York thea- ter was built and named in her honor. She acted in Lon- don, made Hollywood movies, and had her own radio show. Her throaty contralto voice became known to millions all over America because of ex- tensive road tours. In later years, she turned to character roles and played scores of these with distinc- tion.

It was Brigitte's second marriage, Jacques' first. She is 24, he 23. Rumors about the marriage had blown hot and cold for five days.

Brody, his deputy and Brown's special water counsel. v THE GOVERNOR, in ilis post-victory statement, re- ferred to Banks and Brody as "the two who stood at my side throughout (he struggle." It didn't sound like a requiem for Banks. Banks was the engineer of the water plan, Brody its chief architect.

Y. man who played host to one of the largest gatherings of gangsters in the annals of crime in this country died Wednesday night. Joseph Barbara, who suffered a heart attack May 27, carried with him to the grave another key to the mysteri- ous meeting of 60-odd hoodlums and friends at Apalachin, N. Y., on Nov. M, 1957. The 53-year-old, short, once-swarthy, bespectacled Barbara, shriveled and paled by illness, had lived on the fringes of death since he fell unconscious at his home in nearby Endicott May 29. He lost the fight for his life at p.m. BUT HE WON HIS FIGHT never to divulge the sin- ister meanings behind the crime cabal at his plush, hilltop estate. Despite repeated efforts to have him break his silence, Barbara evaded questioning by pleading illness. Only last April it looked as though state investigators pink with white markings, with a plunging neckline that showed off her famous figure to full advantage. She wore no hat, and her famous tawny hair tumbled down around her neck. Charrier wore a dark grey checkered suit and red tie. With Brigitte and Jacques inside the city hall, the pho- tographers brushed aside an inadequate police cordon and followed them. The photographers broke open the wedding room doors and scrambled into the room, where they formally asked Brigitte for permission to photograph the ceremony. Brigitte's brown eyes blazed. She stamped her foot and shouted: "Non, non, Then she buried her face in her hands and burst into sobs. Young Charrier stood be- tween his beloved and the photographers and appealed to them to think of her feel ings.

This measure would enable the city to enter long-term leases for the con- itruction of hotels, motels and restaurants on the state- granted tidelands. Both bills were sponsored ordered Barbara, ill or not, to testify before the Slate Investigation agency that has managed to jail some of the delegates to the underworld meeting for refusal to talk. No date had been set for Barbara's hearing, however. IN HIS ONLY PUBLIC appearance after the gangland meeting, Barbara, looking drawn and haggard, sat silently in a wheel-chair in U.S. District Court in Syracuse April 27, while his attorney entered an innocent plea for him to charges of evading payment of nearly federal taxes. Barbara died in Wilson Memorial Hospital during a routine visit by his wife, two sons and a daughter, all of whom were seen departing later, weeping. A Roman Catholic priest accompanied the family. Barbara had suffered a hearl attack prior to the gang- sler convention at his home in 1357.
