Mllot lint Sunday ranted up

tired when the gun fell and

car he wan leaving at the time,
according to Charle Evana, local
unmaker, who waa with Mllot
on the "rock chuck" hunting
t Evana, In a letter to The Her
ald and News, recounted the
event of the tragedy and hla
dltcovery of the cause of the
accident. On the trip were Mllot,
ehta wife. Janey, Ray Billing!
and Evani. They drove to the
ridge that parallrla Habblt flat
on the eait.
About 200 yarda before reach'
Ing the top, Evana aald, the car
waa atopped when aaveral "bob
aqulrrela" were alghted. Mllot
took two or three ahola from the
window of the car with hla left
hand, remarked he could not hit
anything with hla left hand, and
got out of the car. lie and Bill
Ingi walked a ihort distance up
the road and bacK.
"Once while near the car,'
. Evana recounted, "Henry (Mllot)
waa starting to aim at a squirrel
whan hia revolver went off a
little before It was completely
aimed, as the trigger pull waa
pretty light, and he remarked
how light the pull was. The bul
let did not go Into the ground
near hla foot, but off Into the
- hillside away from the car."
Evans said that contrary to
first reports, the gun used by
Mllot waa nut a Ai automatic
pistol, but a single action army
Colt of .45 calibre, frequently
referred to as the "Frontier"
'model. The gun may be exam-
lned at Evans' shop.
Alter making the short stop
. Motioned, the party drove on
ta the top of the hill. When a
stop was made there, Mllot got
'out by the left hand door and
Evana by the right door, and had
hla back to the car when he
beard a shot.
Evana said ha thought at first
Mllot had fired at a squirrel un
til ha heard him say "Oh!" and
even then he thought Mllot had
atumbled. When he heard him
repeat "Oh" Evans ran with
Billings to the wounded man.
"When wa lifted him," Evans
. aald, "Henry said 'my leg' and
never spoke again." Ho was
placed in the rear seat and rush
ad to a hospital in Klamath
rails. Evana paid tribute to the
driving of Mrs. Mllot, who took
the wheel. Mllot died at the
hospital before a doctor reached
him, hla companions being star
tled because the wound had ap
peared to ba only of the flesh
type and not serioua and they
had believed him unconscious
because of shock and fright.
Both they and a nurse thought
a stimulant would revive him
but ha passed away before the
stimulant could ba administered.
Evana said ha at first thought
Mllot had pulled the gun off as
ne waa drawing it from hla hoi
ater. He aald there were two
marks made by the bullet and
at first wa all thought the bullet
had entered at the groin near the
igCrotch and had passed out seven
4wr alght inchea below and well
toward the back of his left leg,
However, the gunsmith, upon
further investigation, found
there were no powder burns on
the clothing and only one hole,
And "that waa whore wo at first
thought the bullet had emerged."
Evana aald he became convinced
the bullet had entered where It
had been thought it emerged,
Ha aald ha later examined the
wounds, and found he was cor
rect, the bullet had gone up in

the abdomen. In Its upward
course. It had "all but emerged,
making an oblong wound" and
then passed on up into the abdo

been Internal which alone would
Jiave brought death In a very

and had there been a surgeon
with the party he could not have

"As I have stated, the gun Is
a Colt, .4.1 calibre single action

challenge of the axla powers,
business leadera of the country

aald the American planes equal

Production Director John D.
Blggers reported progress of the

he said, production of power

monthly production of military
planes and rifles must be

rupled; small arms production

Jouett said March plane out

be turned out this year and
30,000 in 1942. He revealed that
existing plans call for a total
of 44.000 new planes, of which
