UP) A million dollars in the time and the inclination to spend it. That was the happy prospect that confronted Thomas Linton McCul- lough when he retired at 75. So McCullough, a large cotton plantation owner, set out on one last glorious fling. Not a thing in the world to worry about. Life on a lavish scale with big-time money flowing like wind through his fin- gers to back up the jaunt! All the money he wanted or needed (so he thought) for the last gleaming whirl. When he reached 80, he went off for another "last this time by plane to Mexico and South Am- erica. It lasted three long good years. When he got back to the United States, still time on his hands and money stacked in the bank for another "last fling." And another. And still Each time Mc- Cullough expected death to tap him on the shoulder, but each time when he tickled death along its bony rib, as the phrase goes, death stepped aside and left time for yet another last fling. And another one after that. Then one day the startling real- ization for McCullough that he had time but no money left. Sixteen months ago the last thin trickle of the million dollar for- tune had slipped away, and Mc- Cullough faced life a S50 a month old age pension. No money, but no regrets, either! "My one mistake was that I outlived my McCullough said not so long ago, "But it's an I error I'm going to go on making I just as long as I can." I At long last, of course, death ihad its day. When McCullough died Monday he was 97. To the very end he [said he had no regrets about the iway he had spent his fortune. 100-Man Posse Seeks Two Lost Deer Hunters Two Other Missing Hunters Found, Two More Wounded Ike Keeps Road Open Iowa Woman, 60, 5 Days in Wreck HAMBURG la wv-A 60-year-old grandmother lay seriously injured and helpless for five days and nights in the wreckage of a car con- cealed in a weeded gully beside a busy highway. She had a broken left hip, broken left arm, several fractured ribs and was suffering severe shock. Thousands of cars sped by but no one spotted her.

Some of those on call are By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Posses of nearly 100 men, aided by two airplanes, today redoubled! efforts to find two hunters lost in the northeastern Minnesota wilder- ness area, one of them since the deer season opened Saturday. Lester Peters, 53, walked, into the woods that day at 9 a. m, and hasn't been seen since. He is miss- ing in the Vermillion Dam country, 20 miles north of Cook. On Sunday, Rollie Bennett, 28, j failed to return to his party, hunt- ing near Biiyck, about 35 miles j above Cook. Both men are Min- 1 neapolis residents although not with the same parties. i Two other lost hunters were found Tuesday and two more wounded were added to the grow- ing casualty list, which includes j four deaths so far. Lou Wheeler and Don Anderson, two pilots from Cook, said they j covered a great deal of the area j Tuesday without seeing any trace I of Peters and Bennett or signs j where the men might have built fires. The two planes were again in the air today. Posses Augmented Henry Saari and Adolph Johnson, I St. Louis County deputies leading 1 the hunt, said posses were aug- mented today by 50 Minneapolis residents, friends of Bennett's, who drove to the area overnight. Added to the casualty list were: Joe Janousek, 43, in critical condition at the Pine River clinic after shooting himself through the foot. He was uffering from loss of blood and exposure after drag- ging himself through the woods two miles for help. Robert Sandven, 19, Milan, Minn, shot in the hip when a rifle carried by Robert Grant, also 19 and of Milan, discharged accidentally as they were unloading their weapons late Tuesday. Sandven was report- ed in good condition at Bemidji Lutheran Hospital. At Tofte on the North Shore, Mike Konek, 66, Columbia Heights nimrod who had been missing since Saturday, was found weak from exhaustion and lying under a large tree. Howling Wolves Konek was discovered by Pat Jarvis, one of a party of Konek's friends who had driven up to help in the search. A crew of men chop- ped a two-mile track into the woods to bring Konek out and take him to a Duluth hospital. In the Arbutus country, 45 miles southeast of International Falls, John Marks, 74, walked out under his own power. He had been lost 36 hours after tracking a wounded deer. Marks reported huddling around a campfire overnight for safety against a howling pack of wolves which felled and devoured the crippled deer. "Once I thought I was a Marks related. "I could hear the wolves snarling, and snapping over the carcass near the fire. Some animal dashed through the brush near me. "I almost hugged the flames until I saw it was a large jack- rabbit, apparently just as afraid of the wolves as I was." Barney Sanderson and Christ Cantrell, Marks' sons-in-law, had organized a searching party and were combing the woods when he appeared, coming down an old log- ging trail. All three live in Inter- national Falls. For Changes i Policy as an eye wash.

This difficulty, in turn, is about to show up in the defense increments that these nations will offer NATO for 1953. Drag on Buildup Under the Lisbon program, for instance, the French contribution for 1953 was to be three additional divisions, plus around men to fill up existing divisional cadres, plus rather more than 300 addi- tional aircraft, But the French to- day only intend to transfer to Gen. Ridgway's command two existing French divisions now in North Africa. B.y the same token, the British ground force increment for 1953 will be at least 40 per cent under the level projected at Lisbon, and the air increment will be about 50 per cent short. Moreover both France and Britain expect even greater shortfalls in their 1954 con- tributions. In practical terms, these devel- opments have a simple meaning. Even if the French Chamber of Deputies did not block the creation of German divisions to assist in (Continued on Page 2, Column 5.)

Thus far Afghanistan has rejected the Soviet protests. But the latest reports from Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, says that the Afghans halted work on the oil program because of failure to receive requested assurance of support from the U. S, and Britain in the event rejection of the Soviet protests brings more hostile move from the Russians.

Marine, Pfc. Nicholas G. Baldwin, 24, Minneapolis. Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, U. S. Air Force chief of staff, said he hoped to deliver the package per- sonally. "Three weeks he said, "I was at a reception in Spain. I met these people and they said they had a son in Korea. They asked would I give him this pack- age. I hope whatever it is hasn't been spoiled." He wouldn't tell what's in the package, explaining: "You'd publish it and all his pals would eat it." The news came as no surprise to Baldwin. Reached by telephone at his Marine unit, Baldwin said he had learned about it previously. Asked whether he had any idea what was in the package Baldwin said: "No, I don't. "I don't know the general at all. I've never met him and I have never seen him except in pic- tures." Asked how he felt about a four star general delivering a package half-way round the world to him Baldwin said "It's just a personal favor which the general is doing my family." He was reluctant; to talk about himself or to enjoy the sudden at- tention focused on him. Not Considering Public Office, Stevenson Says SPRINGFIELD, 111. (-fl Gov, Adlai E.

"We believe that the ar- rangements we have made for co- operation will be of great value to the stability of our country and to the favorable progress of intej- national affairs."
