Dr. Bernard Randolph Objects to Probate
          Objections to probate of the will of  D. F. Randolph, who died Wednesday at his home in Waldron, were filed in Shelby Circuit Court here shortly before the prominent physician's son, Dr. Bernard F. Randolph, of this city, and as a result the will can not be probated until action is taken by the court.
          The objections point out that the physician has a son and an adopted daughter, Miss Delores Randolph, and charges that the will is not the last will and testament of  Dr. Randolph, that he was of unsound mind and that the instrument was unduly executed.
          The will bequeaths all of Dr. Randolph's household goods to the daughter and confirms deeds to certain real estate already executed and held in escrow until the death of the physician.  It directs delivery of the deeds to the grantees.  The remainder of the property, according to the will, is to be reduced to cash and, after the payment of all debts, is to be divided equally between the son and daughter.
          The will executed April 20, 1938, names Virgil L. Roberts as executor.  It was witnesses by Dale S. Rafferty and  M. O. Sullivan.
          Claude R. Henry and Adams and Brunner represented the younger Dr. Randolph in the filing of the objections.
