Buick abandoned in field bought by farmer

Last June a Buick Roadster was found parked in an oat field on the farm of William Truman on the Monroeville Road. All efforts to locate the owner of the car proved in vain. Former Deputy Sheriff Frank Adelman visited the Truman farm twice to investigate the case. A letter was written to the state automobile department. The name of the man to whom the license belonged was issued a letter but it was undelivered to his address. Meanwhile a storage bill mounted up and recently the car was advertised for sale and was disposed of legally. Mr. Truman bought the car and it is now legally his property.
