Will of Former Eleanor Elkins Leaves All to Two Children After His Death
NEWPORT, R. I, Aug. 16 (AP)--The will of Eleanor Elkins Rice, leaving an estate estimated variously at from $5,000,000 to $50,000,000, was filed today in Probate Court. Under its terms a trust fund was set up, the income going to her husband, Dr. Alexander Hamilton Rice, and to her children on his death.

Bond of $10,000,000 was furnished and the court accepted the executors named in the document. They are, in addition to the doctor, Mrs. Rice's children by a previous marriage, Eleanor W. Dixon and George D. Widener.

The Rice home, Miramar, here, and homes in New York and Palm Beach were owned jointly by Mrs. Rice and the doctor, and at the latter's death go to the children.

Mrs. Rice left to the Pennsylvania Museum of Art at Philadelphia the Louis XVI drawing room and contents in the home at 901 Fifth Avenue, New York. It was her only individual bequest.
