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 closingjtime at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and the time Braatz entered the place. Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst 'was notified and investigated. -,,En- tranpe to 4he building was gained after the thieves shattered a pane of glass in'.a dpor. They then reached .in and released a lock. After getting -into the structure, a door was torn off a cabinet an the money box ransacked. Checks, which were kept in the box beside the cash, were no disturbed, and as far as can bt= determined, nothing but the $250 was taken. The theft at the' Whittemore Legion hall is the first in the county since break-in artists entered two grocery stores at Wesley 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.
