Lucas, 74, was found by two boys early Friday nigh* in an irrigation canal, two miles east of his home in Edinburg, on the Ed- couch road and Hidalgo officials of- fered two conflicting theories as to the cause of his death—suicide or murder.

The body of the prominent Edin- burg farmer was weighted down by. plow shares, and was found by two boys while in swimming. Mr. Lucas left home at 1:30 p. m., Wednesday to supervise work on an irrigation canal. When he failed to return at nightfall, officials were noti- fied and a search was made in the vicinity of the home. When police failed to find him on the farm, more men were added to the searching par- ty and the hunt was extended. Hidal- go 'Boy Scouts aided Thursday nigh Canals were...
