Here is the Houston Press account: Body Undetected For More Than Two Hours in S.P. Rail Station The Southern Pacific's Austin-to-Houston train roared through the night on an apparently routine trip. Aboard it was Gov. Beauford H. Jester--dead. Sometine around 3:30 a.m. today Gov. Jester died in his sleep of coronary occlusion--in layman's language, a blood clot in the heart. At that time the train was going through Washington County. Not until a Negro porter tried to wake up the governor at 7:30 a.m., two hours after the train pulled into Houston's Grand Central Terminal, was the governor's death discovered. Gov. Jester's death, attributed to natural causes by Justice of the Peace Tom Maes and Dr. Howard L. Evans, automatically made Lt. Gov. Allan Shriver chief executive of the state. Burial will be in Corsicana Wednesday. The body was to be flown back to Austin this afternoon aboard a National Guard plane, with some 25 other state planes providing aerial escort. Governor Jester will lie in state in the Senate Chamber for four hours Tuesday. No One Knew He Was Coming The governor made the trip alone. Not even his most intimate friends, including Cotton Man Bob Henderson, his boyhood friend in Corsicana and his Harris County campaign manager, knew he was coming to Houston. A State Highway patrolman had been notified to meet the 56-year-old chief exectutive of Texas at the Houston station. "It was a secret trip--we knew nothing of the governor's plans" said Capt. Glen Rose of the Houston area of the Texas Highway Patrol. From what police gathered, the governor, worn by the recently concluded session of the Legislature, plannd to meet an unidentified Houston friend and the two were to spend a few days resting at Galveston Bay. It was later ascertained that the Governor's Houston friend who knew about his plans to get away for a few days rest was Lumberman Jim Rockwell. Mr. Rockwell had engaged a fishing boat and place for the governor to stay on Galveston Bay. State Highway Patrolman W.B. Hawkins was to meet the governor and either he or Capt. rose was to have driven him to Galveston Bay were, away from telephone, the governor planned to relax,rest and fish. Verdict Was Natural Causes Capt. Rose was called to the depot by Patrolman Hawkins, who was the officer assigned to meet the governor. E.A. Craft, Southern Pacific executive vice-president, rode from Austin on the same Pullman with the Governor, but didn't know Gov. Jester had died until after he reached the station in Houston. Word of the governor's death, broadcast by newspaper extras and the radio, brought a number of the governor's friends to the railroad station. Among them were Mr. Henderson, who notified Mrs. Jester and went to Houston Funeral Home to view the body. Rep. Jimmy Pattison of Fort Bend County, Mayor Holcombe and City Attorney Will Sears. The mayor immediately ordered all public flags at half-staff. "I've known Beauford since we were boys together at Corsicana" said Mr. Henderson. "I never knew he suffered from heart trouble." He was always a hard rugged hard-working individual who didn't spare himself. "The strain of the session killed him" said Rep. Pattison. The governor got on the train alone at Austin at 11:25 and went directly to Lower Berth Five on the Pullman "Berkeley" He donned light blue pajamas and retired immediately after leaving word to be aroused at 7:30 a.m. in Houston. Porter Tried to Wake Him Up At 5:30 a.m. the train arrived at the Grand Central Station on Washington and was switched from track 1 to tract 2. At 7:30 a.m., Pullman Porter Charles Jimerson, 66, of 1202 Ruthven, went to wake up the governor. "It's time to get up" he said softly. He repeated this several times. Then Jimerson shook the governor by the shoulders. "I knew something had happened and called the conductor." related the porter. Pullman Conductor C.D. Pierce and Patrolman Hawkins went to the lower berth, which was directly in the center of the car facing north. "I turned on the light and pulled the curtains apart." said Patrolman Hawkins. "The governor's expression was calm, but it was apparent he had been dead for some time. There was no pulse. I opened his eyelids and remarked, "Gov. Jester is dead." As Patrolman Hawkins notified Captain Rose, Conductor Pierce told the news to D.R. Kirk Jr. 7016 Texarkana, assistant train master, and S.R. Hay, assitant special agent for Southern Pacific. They in turn notified Station Master C.M. Blackburn of 2612 Greenleaf, whose dispatcher put in a call to police. The time of the notification was 7:45 a.m. Justice of the Peace Maes and Dr. Evens made their medical examination at 8:19 at which time Dr. Evens said Gov. Jester had been dead four or five hours. The justice of peace concurred. Railroad officials barred everyone but the doctor and the justice of the peace from the train. The body was taken to the Houston Funeral Home, where Mr. Henderson and Rep. Pattison got in touch with the governor's family in Austin. Mr. Henderson was at home when he heard a radio broadcast, and Mr. Pattison was 15 miles from Houston, driving when he heard the newscast. City Detectives L.C. Watts, Lloyd Barrett,John Irwin, and Frank Murray investigated the death. Mr. Henderson said the governor told him he was tired physically from the strain of the legislative session in two conversations one six weeks ago and the other just two ago. "He Was a Good Governor" "But none of us knew he had any heart trouble." said Mr. Henderson. "We knew he had colon trouble. What a shock this is. You know, Beauford Jester always wanted to be governor. He was a good governor, and a good man. He never wanted to hurt anybody's feelings." Rep. Pattison said in recent weeks, Gov. and Mrs. Jester and he and his wife had started taking square dance lessons. "The governor was a square shooter." said the Fort Bend County representative, who with the aid of the governor suceeded in getting legislation through that will greatly assist the state's eleemosynary institutions. In Austin, Mrs. Jester was described as "too stunned yet to know anything." She is at the governor's mansion and remained in her upstairs room after being notified of her husband's death. With her were two of the three children, Beauford Jr, and Joan. A third, Barbara (Mrs. Howard Burris) was in New York. Had Boat Ride Yesterday The governor took a boat ride on Lake Austin yesterday with his family and staff, the United Press reported. At that time Gov. Jester complained of being tired. Just a week ago, Gov. Jester suffered an attack of food poisoning and was confined to the mansion for most of the day.
