      BENEFACTORS AID FAMILY IN DISTRESS

      SYDNEY, Sun: Two Newcastle men today offered to care for four boys of a family of eight children who were virtually orphaned by their father's death last Thursday. Several other people today gave food and money to assist the family.
      Reginald S. Minter, of Narara rd, Adamstown, was found dead behind the wheel of a truck which crashed head-on into a telephone post at Newcastle on Thursday. Mr and Mrs Minter separated several years ago.
      For the past 18 months Minter and his children had lived in a leaky two-roomed humpy at Adamstown. The eldest daughter, Mrs Nix, who had looked after them, is in hospital, where her baby daughter was bom last Friday night.
