home this afterhoon by shooting
himself in the head with a large
caliber pistol, according to police

Champion Fibre company, came
home shortly after noon and went
to his room. A few minutes after
ward members of the family heard
a pistol shot, and rushed to the
room where they found him dying
from a wound in the left temple.
Neighbors stated that he apparent
