Mrs. Paul Harle, wife of the manager of the store, foiled the robbery attempt. Her husband, Paul Harle was in the back of store when the robber walked in,, about 8:20 o'clock. Mrs. Harle said the hijacker entered the store and asked for a pint of Old Taylor. As Mrs. turned to get it, the man quietly placed a small, black gun on the counter. Mrs. Harle unable to fijid the brand, then turned to ask the customer, "Do you see and he said "Open that cash reffister." Frightened, she tittered a soft, 'fPaul . .
