George Swisher

     The death of George Swisher, age 35, Alias Glen Action, at the Utah Construction company's ranch, where his body was found Wednesday, was the result of suicide in the opinion of Coroner P.J. Grossman and Deputy Sheriff Hamilton, who returned about 6 0'clock Friday morning from the ranch.
    The cause of the suicide could not be definitely established, but the evidence plainly indicated that the death wound was self-inflicted, according to Mr. Grossman. Swisher is said to have been despondent and had lived alone at the ranch house. He had worked in the vicinity of San Jacinto, Nevada, and Rogerson for about five years.
   The body is at the Grossman Parlors and funeral arrangements are awaiting the receipt of word from a brother at Caldwell.
