Fonda, who died in New York two weeks ago, provides in his will, which was probated in the Morris County Surrogate's office today, that the greatest care and precaution be taken by his wife to prevent anyone from robbing his grave. He also requests that his body be subjected to such tests as science and medical knowledge have proved most effectual in determining when life is extinct. "No such tests as would extinguish any spark of life that might still remain in my body shall be used," the testator says, "and I am not to be buried until it is absolutely certain that no life exists. Under no circumstances nor for any pretext whatever, even though it be in the interests of science, shall an autopsy be performed on my body, nor shall it be placed on ice or embalmed." His rifles, pistols and ammunition, the will provides, shall be sold to a dealer, and not repurchased by any relative, for fear harm might befall him.
