J3e Palma's clot lies were torn to threads. The pocket book was car- ried in nil inside pocket of the coat. As lie was carried off the course, a crowd gathered around him. and it is believed that some one picked up the pocket, book. Several times in the ambulance en the way to the hospital De Palm asked about his pocketbook but medi- cal attendants took little notice, think- ing him delirious.

De Palma has not been told of his loss.
