Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - May 31, 1942, Racine, Wisconsin Sunday a bulletin vol. 13, no. 3racine, wis., sunday May 31, 1942. 8 pages hidden by Clark Porteous Nea service correspondent. Hornersville mo., May 30. A or. Floyd Kinsolving lived a strange life. But perhaps the most fantastic chapter in an eccentric career began on May 5, with the death of this 79-year-old physician planter lawyer and Snake fancier. What has set this Century old Village Seething with excitement is the discovery of a sizeable Fortune hidden in the old Kingsolving Plantation House on Little River. A rambling. 16-room Structure where few of Hor Nerville a 875 residents were Ever admitted. Now these residents Are waiting to see if further search will turn up More valuables or More important still a will. Valued at $500,000. There is one will already in existence. But that was drawn Back in 1917. It left his estate valued then at a half million to the University of Missouri and the University of Louisville by. To his children he bequeathed his a love a and affection and $ i apiece. Or. Kinsolving did no to like his children Jack in 1917, but he did no to like colleges either always said that a Young folks went to them to learn to get along without having to work the old doctor and his children quarrelled in 1903, and he did no to speak to them again until 1939, when they were reconciled. So Hornersville figures there must be a later will somewhere. If there Isnit the town is looking Forward to the biggest Law suit in the history of Dunklin county since the hours Are almost certain to try to break the will. Meanwhile things Are at a standstill while the Musty old House is being ransacked under direction of the estate s administrators. The search began because the local Barker reported after the old doctors death that he had sold him $50,000 Worth of War Bonds in january and the Bonds were nowhere to be found. The search turned up a treasure that even the most sceptical had not bargained for. Amazed townsfolk. There were some who suspected or. Kinsolving of being a Well even though he always complained of being Short of ready Cash and had borrowed Money to Plant his Cotton crop last year. but when the searching party uncovered the buried Hoard their gasp of astonishment was echoed All Over Hornersville. Or. Kinsolving had made the hiding place himself. It was an Ante room in his basement with a heavy door and special lock. No one was Ever allowed to enter it. The Walls were lined with shelves of Dusty old Medicine bottles and other Odds and ends but one of the shelves was removable. The doctor would take Down the wealth of a Centric doctor foun tru Law boomerangs in Kansas Leonard Edmonston with containers which held $160,000 found in secret Cache shown in inset.

Gas rations confuse East by George Gallup director american Institute of Public opinion Princeton. N. J., May 30.�? before gasoline rationing is extended throughout the country there is Clear evidence of an urgent need for Fuller explanation to the Public of the reasons which make rationing necessary. In a study by the Institute of first reactions to the rationing program which went into effect in Tje Eastern states these facts come to Light 1. A full third of the people in the rationed areas Are not convinced that rationing is necessary. Some even think it was put into effect merely to make the country a War 2. An even larger proportion nearly four in every ten believe that the distribution of ration cards giving some people More gasoline than others has not been Madison broadcast voices Hope for scandinavians Madison May 30.

Few family automobiles Are strictly pleasure vehicles Dearing argues and about 57 per cent of the Miles travelled by car Are business Miles including travel to and from work farm to Market trips shopping and salesmen a travels. The bulk of automobile travel occurs not in Cross country trips but in Short a a shuttle trips around the Home town. The bigger the City he says the less people Are dependent on their cars. The location of Many War plants makes it practically impossible for workers to get to work and Back Home again except by driving their own cars or Riding with other Drivers. To meet the crisis Dearing proposes the cities which now have 14,000,000 cars should get along with Only 10,000.000. But the bigger cities can stand the Cut More easily. He would apportion the 30 per cent Cut in City cars As follows Cut in cities 25,000 to 50,000�?20 per cent cities 50,000 to 500,000�? 25 per cent Over 500,000�?50 per cent. This is Dearing a estimate of the cuts that can be made without disrupting economic life on the Home front. 30 per cent Cut in farm areas and Small suburban communities which Are not served by bus or trolley Dearing Calls for a Cut from 13,000,000 to about 11,000,000 cars. For these people he says eliminating the it was in that same 1929 on oct. 23 when a record shattering 16 million shares were traded and the Market crashed breaking up the playhouse. New Breed arrived. The years of Money famine started. Dignified Elmer retired. A old Jake died. The browers gave up their boutonnieres and lost the heart to sing a song to Nellie. Some of the old familiar faces disappeared men too old or too tender to take a further beating. A new Breed of men began to move into the Wall Street partnerships. These were the clerks the bookkeepers the salesmen who never in a thousand years would have had the Chance if the crash Hadnot booted some of their old Bosses out of the Way. They were younger tougher and willing to work harder hoping that some Day they also might be sprinkled by the Golden rain. Some sources say these present Day investment House partners Are Content yearly to make even less than to per cent of the income of the men who wore the boutonnieres.

On March 6, Savage and the officer picked up a payroll of $6,045.83 and locked it in the rear part of the jeep. Savage eluded the officer and drove to Olympia. He pried open the Money Box took the contents and deserted his jeep. He bought an automobile for $1,200 and drove to Omaha neb. He left the automobile there and went to Rochester by plane.
