TRIED TO ROB TRUCKDRIVER GYPSIES ATTEMPT TO STAGE A BOLD DAYLIGHT JOB Milo Shuck of Sioux City, 23 years old, and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Shuck of Hawarden, was the victim of an attempted highway rob- !>ery shortly after noon Wednesday. He is employed as a truck driver for the Fairmont Creamery in Sioux City and was traveling on the LeMars-Akron highway about two miles west of the Perry Creek road. Just ahead of him a car occupied by four gypsies, two men and two women, started to turn around in the road. This compelled him to bring his truck to a stop. The gypsies then alighted from their car and one of the women ran to the truck and climbed up onto the running board. 'She immediately wanted to tell his fortune and at the same time grabbed an envelope out of his overalls pocket which contained pay checks for Fairmont cream buyers at Centerville. Mr. Shuck jumped out of the cab and knocked the woman down and retrieved the envelope, although it was badly torn in the process. The two gypsy men then started for Mr. Shuck but he pulled a big wrench from the tool box on the side of the truck and was preparing to wield this when a Chevrolet, car, occupied by three Plymouth county men, drove up to the scene. These men immediately started to get out of their car when they saw the fracas and the gypsies ran and climbed into their own car and drove away at full speed. The gypsies were driving a big, powerful car and it was useless to try to follow them. Mr. Shuck then came on to Hawarden.
