LAW SCHOOL STUDENT FEARED TO BE SUICIDE

COAT WITH HIS NAME ON IT WAS FOUND NEAR RIVER

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

F. William Burgess 1L, for whose body Metropolitan police were dragging the Charles River Basin all day yesterday, was still missing early this morning. Burgess' coat was found on the West Boston Bridge early yesterday morning and identified by Boston police as his by the name written in it and his initials in the hat found besides it.

He was not in his room yesterday, police said, and his bed was not slept in last night. Clark Cummings 1L, Burgess' room-mate, could not be reached yesterday but his neighbors in Perkins Hall described him as "always cheerful." He had no trouble with his work, they said. A graduate of the University of Cincinnati in 1936 Burgess came here this year.

The report that a man, supposedly Burgess, was seen struggling in the water in that vicinity yesterday was discounted because the woman witness was said to be intoxicated. Lieutenant Kinary of the Metropolitan police is conducting the investigation.
