INQUEST TO BE HELD TONIGHT Probe In Death Of Sailor, In War Hero In Crash Set By Coroner An inquest will be held to night in the death cl a sailor attached to the PC-776 here and a local World War II hero who were instantly killed early yes terday morning in an oil tank er-automobile collision, Act ing Coroner Dr. Fred H. Cole man said last night. The* dead were Hugh C. Reece, son of Fireman J. E. Reece, and Lewis Goldy, 253 Madison avenue, Bridgeport. Floyd Council, 23-year-old driver of the car in which they were riding, was treated at James Walker Memorial hospi tal for lacertions of the scalp, lacerations of the upper lip and loss of two teeth, was later placed in jail on charges of op erating an automobile while un der the influence and careless and reckless driving resulting in death. He was released on payment of a $1,000 cash bond in Recorder’s court later yes terday. miss Aima uause, Zj-year-oid passenger in the Council car, who was treated for abrasions of the right knee, right hip and chest, was held under $250 bond on the technical charge of va grancy as a material witness to the accident. Daniel J. Gurganus, Route 1, Wilmington, driver of the heavy, 1947 model oil tanker, was uninjured in the crash. Gurganus reported to investi gating officers that he was driv ing northeast down Cowan street and came to a stop at Fourth street prior to turning north into Fourth. He said that he saw Council’s 1940 sedan ap proaching on a zig-zag course south on Fourth. The driver of the tanker said that Council’s car came to a complete stop some distance from the corner at which his truck was stopped and that he then attempted to turn the truck into Fourth, but that the other car started again suddenly, ap parently in second gear and at a high rate of speed. The car swerved to the left, back to the right and to the left again be fore hitting the trailer’s left front bumper, he said. According to the police report, Gurganus told them that he thought that Council was at tempting to pass his truck in the rear and consequently tried to pull the trailer around and out of the way of the car. After the collision, he told po lice, he found a young man and young woman slumped over in the front seat of the automobile and two other young men lying on the pavement outside. The rear wheels of the heavy trailer apparently had passed over them, he said. Both men, Zoldy with injuries to the stomach and chest and Reece with head injuries, were killed instantly and were re moved to Andrews mortuary from the scene of the wreck. Dr. Fred H. Coleman, acting coroner, said that an inquest in to the deaths of the two men will be held tonight at 7:30 p.m In their report of the acci dent, police officers said that Council told them that he had had two drinks of whisky at around 8:30 p.m. and had drunk several bottles of beer la ter in the evening. He was quoted as saying he picked up Miss Gause and an unidentified man who later got out of the car at a local drive-in and later picked up Reece nd Zoldy in the 200 block of Grace street. Council’s occupation was list ed by the police as “sailor.” Surviving Reece are his moth er and father; one brother, James E. Reece, Jr., Los An geles, Calif.; and one sister, Mrs. J. H. Hardy, Wilmington. GUEST SPEAKER H. A. Stallings, associate edi tor of the Wilmington Star-News, will be the guest speaker at the Jacksonville Lions Club Thursday.

(International Soundphofo) SUPREME COURT REVERSES LOCAL BODY YESTERDAY Among the decisions handed down yesterday by the North Carolina Supreme court was the reversal of a judgment by Judge Chester Morrison, of Currituck, in New Hanover Superior court last July to set aside a suit of the City of Wilmington against Shutt Brothers grocery. The suit involved only ap proximately $190 expended by the city during the war to ex terminate rats for the firm with the agreement that the city would be reimbursed, observers said last night. There are some 14 or 15 other firms who may be sued for the recovery of such expenditures if this case proves successful for the city, it was said.
