Simon Fine, 62, was found dead in his wrecked car, partially hidden beneath a bridge about a quarter mile east of Stratford. Fine who lived at Stratford, had been missing since Saturday, Jan. 6, when he was seen by Sheriff Tom Abney at Pauls Valley. A twist of fate brought about the discovery of the Fine automobile. Ishmael Mercer, a Garvin County cattleman who lives eight miles south of Stratford, was driving a truck loaded with horses toward Stratford about p.m. Monday. As he approached the bridge, Mercer said, a car com- ing from the opposite direction forced him to take to the side of the road. His truck rammed into the bridge --------1 abutment, shearing off the high sideboards. About 15 horses were tossed from the truck bed. Apparently, three of them were killed or seri- ously injured. The truck didn't overturn, however, and Mercer was unhurt. As officers began to investigate the Mercer accident, they spotted the Fine vehicle.

Another missionary was taken away and has not been heard from. The report to the bishop said troops of the Congo central gov- ernment attacked missionaries living near Kongolo, beat them and then killed them. President Moise Tshombe of Ka- tanga reported on Jan. 1 that his forces had abandoned Kongolo and that the invaders were killing hundreds of civilians and burning villages as they advanced on the town. Tshombe claimed that the in- vading troops were under the or- ders of the Central Congo gov- ernment in Leopoldville. but re- ports since have indicated that they were loyal to pro-Communist Deputy Premier Antoine Gizenga. who was put under virtual house arrest in Stanleyville Sunday by central government troops. Gizenga has been accused of dispatching troops into north Ka- tanga in an effort to establish his own state in the northeast Congo. Units of Gizenga's Stanleyville force were blamed for the murder of 13 Italian li.N. airmen in Kivu Province in November, cause of his death was not im- mediately known. It is possible injuries received in the accident caused his death, but he could have frozen to death or died of starvation in the lime he was pinned in the vehicle.
