FORGOTTEN FORTUNE Tax Refund Waits for Couple A man and his wife listed in today's "Forgotten Fortune" column have a federal income tax refund check they never have claimed. Why would they file a return calling for so large a refund and then apparently forget it? Internal Revenue Service spokesmen at Los Angeles say there are mflny reasons possible. Biggest, perhaps, is that they listed an incorrect ad- dress and, when the check was not delivered, they de- cided the "government is checking on us" and never con- tacted the IRS concerning the refund.

A statement was issued after President Eisenhower, :op-ranking Congress mem- Ders and other high govern- ment officials called for ex- planation of an initial report on the lack of return fire. That report quoted a crew member as saying missing parts were the cause. The plane was set upon over international waters of the Sea of Japan. One crew- man was wounded. 4 THE PENTAGON said the new information was based a preliminary investigation report order Adm. Arleigh A. Burke, chief of naval operations. The P4M Mercator plane originally was intended for antisubmarine warfare work, the statement said. "Its normal armament, an antisubmarine warfare plane, includes three pairs of pair of 20-milli- meter guns mounted in the forward turret; the second pair in the tail turret, and a pair of .50-caliber guns mounted in a turret, atop the the statement said. "THIS PARTICULAR plane was assigned to reconnais- sance missions rather than antisubmarine duty, during its deployment in the West- ern Pacific. And because of this the forward turret, used only against surface targets was deliberately rendered in- operable by utilizing the space for reconnaissance-type equip ment. For a similar reason, and to compensate for the weight of the additional equipment, the top turret had been removed. "When the attack occurred, the pilot swung the plane away from the attacking MIGs in order to bring the (ail turret to bear for defen- sive purposes.

Billion State Budget Passed by Legislature By MORR1E LANDSBERG SACRAMENTO The California Legislature :nrned today from resounding approval of Gov. Brown's budget and modified tax program to a historic decision on building the world's largest water system. Only Assembly assent was required to submit a lion-dollar water bond issue to the 1960 state ballot. The Senate already has said yes. Weeks of intensive work by the governor's office has dis- sipated opposition to the ity to achieve progress. Any acceptance of such a thesis, he saiu, would make traditional diplomacy useless.

Entering through an unlocked front door, the knifes- man accosted the woman in her bedroom as she was preparing to retire. Holding his knife at her throat, he ripped off all her clothes and forced her to lie on the bed. Moving the knife to her cheek, he exerted pressure until there was a small puncture wound. "I'M he said. "You don't know Low crazy I am." He moved the knife over'most of her body, inflicting additiorial puncture wounds and scratches. Unable to bear any more, the woman started scream- ing.

This s an offer to accept dealings with Communist East German authorities more or less as agents of the Soviet Union. THIS APPEARS to be one major surprise provision in the western proposal.

Indict Beck in Payment NEW YORK CW Teamster Union boss Dave Beck and two prominent trucking company executives were indicted by a federal grand jury today for what was termed a mysterious payment to Beck in 1954. Those named with Beck were Roy Fruehauf of Bir- mingham, Mich., president of the Fruehauf Trailer Co. of Detroit, and Burge Seymour, ?5, of Lilchfield County, Conn., president of the Asso- ciated Transport, Inc., of New York. BECK AND the others were charged with violations of Act provi- ;ions forbidding a union offi- cer from accepting payments "rom management officials, nd vice versa. Beck still was Teamster Union president at the time of the alleged payment. And his union represented em- ployes of the two firms. He s now in retirement and facing possibie prison terms 'n other cases. The indictment did not specify the purpose of the purported payment and U.S. Atty. S. Hazard Gillespie de- clined to elaborate. Fruehauf and Seymour admitted it in testi- mony before the Senate Se- lect Committee on Improper Activities in the Labor Field on May 13, 1957. They said they made the payment joint- ly to Beck on the date given in the indictment, June 21. 1954. In their testimony, both ex- ecutives said that at 'no time did they ask the purpose of the payment and at no time were they told what it for. ;
