      CALIBER GUN; SUSPECT PLEADS INNOCENT AT ARRAIGNMENT. Deputy Sheriff Clyde Fee, 43, Gulston, was killed instantly last night about 7:30 at Pansy when struck by three pistol bullets. Columbus Fowler, about 39, Pansy, was arrested this morning near Sampson and has been charged with willful murder. Fowler was arraigned before Judge Wix Unthank and entered a plea of not guilty. He is being held without bond in the county jail. Fee was struck twice in the chest and once in the neck. Deputy Sheriff Dan Gray said the murder weapon had not been recovered, but it was a small caliber pistol.
