THE MORNING CALL, SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1986 B41 POLICE: $150,000 bail set for suspect in death of Portland man New Jersey Superior Court Judge John Kingfield yesterday set bail at $150,000 for Raymond E. Kise, charged with murder, kidnapping and aggravated assault in the death of a Portland man. The judge remanded Kise to Warren County Jail.

He must post the entire amount and not merely 10 percent to win release, Kingfield said. Kise, 22, of Blairstown R.D., N.J., and Harry Anthony Bartholomay, 24, of Portland are accused of beating Thomas Smothergill, 22, at Smothergill's apartment on Delaware Avenue, Portland, Jan. 1, and taking him across a footbridge between Portland and Columbia, N.J. Smothergill's frozen body was found Tuesday in the Delaware River about 30 yards from the bridge. He reportedly drowned, although Dr.

Isidore Mihalakis, Warren County medical examiner who performed an autopsy Thursday night at Warren Hospital, declined to reveal the cause of death. Upper Mount Bethel Township police on Wednesday charged Bartholomay with aggravated assault and attempted homicide in the beating that preceded Smothergill's death. Bartholomay remains in Northampton County Prison without bail. Warren County authorities said they have filed a detainer against him, but the Northampton County district attorney's office said it has received no word from New Jersey about possible extradition proceedings. New Jersey police said Thursday they are seeking two other men for questioning in the matter.

They are Rodney Allen Batchler, 25, of Mount Bethel and Patrick Riley, 28, of Portland. Coplay police cruiser damaged in accident A Coplay police car received about $2,000 worth of damages Wednesday in an accident in the borough. Police said Officer Donald Hill was driving the cruiser car north at about 8:18 a.m. on N. 2nd Street.

It was hit by a 1979 Ford pick-up driven by Joseph Makovsky, 25, 5024 Washington Whitehall Town- ship, making a left-hand turn into Merchants Bank at 29 N. 2nd St. No injuries resulted, and the truck received minor damage, police said. The police car was taken out of service. Any charges against Makovsky are pending completion of the investigation, police said.

Antique sewing machine taken from Gilbert home State police at Lehighton said an antique sewing machine was stolen yesterday from a home in Gilbert, Polk Township, Monroe County. Police said Ruth L. Schweidop had the antique Singer sewing machine on display in the front of her home. The machine was taken between Jan. 9 and 10 and is valued at $125.

Fumes force workers from Allentown offices A concentration of solvent fumes caused a number of workers to leave their jobs yesterday morning at the Gallery on the Mall office complex in the 900 block of Hamilton Mall, Allentown. Dan Brennan, manager and one of the owners of the mall location, said the problem began Thursday evening when a subcontractor hired by Prudential Bache Securities used the solvent to clean some filing cabinets in preparation for painting them. The Allentown Fire Department was called to the scene at 8:52 a.m. yesterday morning to investigate the odor. Brennan said the fire marshal indicated that the fumes were not damaging to health.

David Hendricks, public relations manager for Bell Telephone business office, said the fumes got into the heating and air ventilation system of the building. About 115 Bell employees were given the option to leave, he said, after several became ill. No ambulances were called, said Hendricks, but he thought some employees sought medical attention. Other businesses at the Galley on the Mall remained open, although some of their employees left. Man arrested in 1982 robbery in Bethlehem Angel L.

Acevedo, 40, whose last known address was listed as 1505 Elayne Bethlehem, was returned from Puerto Rico Wednesday night by members of the Northampton County District Attorney's Office to answer charges in connection with the Dec. 7, 1982, armed robbery and shooting at a Bethlehem restaurant. Acevedo was arraigned Wednesday night before District Justice Michael Koury of Easton on a charge of robbery and committed to Northampton County Prison without bail pending a hearing before District Justice John Gombosi of Bethlehem at a later date. Acevedo was brought to Bethlehem police headquarters Thursday where he was processed on the charge in connection with the robbery at the Fillmore Restaurant at E. 5th and Fillmore streets.

At the time of the robbery, Theresa Kellemen, then 84, was knocked to the floor and beaten. She received a broken arm in the attack, a cut left ear and numerous bruises. Her niece and waitress, Julie Fortley, 70, was shot in the back and pistol-whipped to the floor. At the time, police reported that they believed Fortley was shot because she told the robber there was no more money after he got $20. Acevedo was arrested by FBI agents as he attempted to leave the San Juan Airport in early December.

He was taken into custody on fugitive warrants sworn out before Gombosi. Allentown FOP lodge elects new president Patrolman Richard Suppan recently was elected president of the Queen City Lodge 10, Fraternal Order of Police, Allentown, by a 65-55 vote over Detective John Young.
