Thanks Don, I have to defer to Mr. Freeman - I got the lion's
share of my info from _him._ The fund is defunct, but I'm holding
300 dollars for John Ford.

That's it in a nut-shell old friend. John Ford was furiously
investigating a corrupt and hugely powerful political boss by the
name of John Powell. John Powell could bear no such
investigation; indeed he pled "no contest" to tip-of-the-iceberg
racketeering charges later on. The _reasonable_ reader can do the
math...

Too - maybe Mr. Freeman knows... Did John Powell spend a _day_ in
jail?
