Suspect Home Talent, Theft At WJiitfemore Authorities are still trying to come up with all the necessary answers following .theft of $250 in currency and' coins from the Legion hall at Whittemore during the weekend. The theft was discovered by Robert Braatz, an employee, when he went to the Legion hall early Sunday afternoon. The theft of the cash occurred sometime between closing 'time at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and the time Braatz entered the place. Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst was notified and investigated. Entrance to the building was gained after the thieves shattered a pane of glass in a door. They then reached in and released a lock. After getting into the structure, a door was torn off a cabinet and the money box ransacked. Checks, which were kept in the box beside the cash, were not disturbed, and as far as can be determined, nothing but the $250 was takep. The -theft at the Whittemore Legion hall is the first in the county since 'break-in artists entered two grocery stores at Wes-r ley during a spree that carried them across the entire north portion of Iowa several months ago. Further investigation and work on the case, which may have been the work of criminals from this area, has been promised by Sheriff Lindhorst. V.F.W.
