The Dally Retttster^Mail, Qatesburft Hi. Monday, October 5, 1953 Police Crack 2 ftnrglaries. In Short Time WhH« Galeiburg went to church, hud * dinflet and read the Sunday paper, local police cracked two mtfglary cases In which the culprits were different individuals. •' : A busy Sunday provided Opportunities for excellent police sleuthing. Police Chief George Fuller fOWId one case with two clues- bloodstains and an automatic pencil. Galesburg police arrest of one burglar,, also reportedly cleared up a Peoria department store burglary even before it was discovered Arrested by police at the scene! of an attempted break-in, William Routt, 43, of Dyersburg, Term,, reportedly ha *s confessed that he broke into the Livingston Department Store in Peoria a few hours earlier. Routt was arrested by Patrolman John Watkins Sunday at 3 p. m, in an attempt to pry open the front door of Roadif er's Ready- to -Wear, 232 E. Main St. Arrested with Routt as an accomplice was Christine A. Morgan, 27, of Temple City, Calif. A proprietor of Roadifer's pro vided the tip which resulted in Routt's arrest. Sam Jacoby was working inside the store Sunday afternoon when he reportedly saw Routt try to pry open the front door with a screw driver. Jacoby called the polics by use of a telephone in his store. Stolen Suits Found When arrested, Routt had in his possession a heavy screw driver, two rings, a watch and $219. Police found in an expensive car, which reportedly is Routt's, several men's suits which Routt reportedly admitted taking along with the rings and watch in the Peoria department store break-in Sunday morning. Local officials contacted Peoria police who had not yet learned of the Peoria break-in. Investigation revealed that the store had been entered. It is believed that Routt and his woman companion will be turned over to authorities in Peoria for prosecution on the accomplished burglary. Chief, Detective Use Clues i Chief George Fuller and Detec -I tive William Allison reportedly solved a second burglary in Galesburg Sunday within a few hours after it happened. They have arrested William S. Lamb, 42, of St. Louis, on a chsrge of theft from Boothe Cleaners, 156 N. Broad St. The theft was discovered at 6 a.m. Sunday morning, and police found two clues — an automatic pencil left at the scene and bloodstains believed to have come from an injury in the break-in. Entry was gained by breaking a hole in glass door of the store. Police theorized that the burglar was injured when he crawled in because blood stains were foUnd on a pair of pants hanging in the store. Suit Identified The burglar apparently left by crawling through the same hole, according to police. When arrested Lamb was wearing a suit identified by proprietor Glenn Boothe as having been stolen from his shop. The suit had a tear in the back, matching a cut on Lamb's back. Detective Allison arrested Lamb Sunday at 8:35 a .m. at Cedar and Ferris streets. The detective picked Lamb up on an intoxication charge and then held him for investigation after seeing that he had a cut on his left hand. At the station, Chief Fuller set a verbal trap for the suspect. He held up the pencil found at the scene and asked Lamb, "Where did you buy this?" Apparently assuming that the pencil was found in his possession when he was searched, Lamb replied, "At Cairo, 111." Police take this as admission that the pencil had been in his possession till lost at Booth's. Police found several pennies in Lamb's possession. The cleaner shop theft included small change- much of it in pennies. Lamb was brought before Justice James Morrissey today and bond was set at $3,500. A continuance of 10 days was granted for his preliminary hearing to decide whether he should be bound over to a Knox County grand jury. A third weekend burglary was reported in Galesburg with a purse and coins missing from the Coal Bucket, 1200 S. Henderson St. Entry was made by jimmying a w?st- side window. Desk drawers were ransacked and contents were dumped onto the floor. The theft occurred sometime between Friday evening and this morning when it was discovered.

THi DAILY ReGISTEB-MAIl Public officials in 21 counties in this part of the state have been invited to participate in a Civil Defense conference Wednesday in the Laboratory School of the Little Theater on the campus of Western Illinois State College in Macomb. The conference will start after the registration of officials at 9 a. m. and will continue to 4 p. m Galesburg and Knox County will be represented at the conference by Guy W. Parkins, local Civil Defense director. Lists Counties Gen. Robert M. Woodward, state CD director, invited public offi cials from the following counties to attend the affair: Adams, Brown, Calhoun, Cass, Fulton, Greene, Hancock, Henderson, Jersey, Knox, Macoupin, Mc Donough, Mason, Menard, Mercer, Morgan, Pike, Rock Island, Schuyler, Scott and Warren. Gen. Woodward in issuing the invitation stated: "In all the dis cussions that appear in magazines and newspapers about development of hydrogen and atom bombs, including the question as to whether our military defense can prevent the dropping of bombs in our area, the one outstanding fact is that Russia has the capability to drop these terrible bombs on our cities and homes. Cites Problem "Nor is the burden of preparing to ineet such an attack—both by warning the people of its imminence and by preparing to repair damage done—a burden that falls on the large cities alone. Every one in the state must recognize that our problem will be to keep up production, both for home use and for military use. Solving that problem will require the cooperation of all people of all communities with those in the damaged area. "The remotest town will be called.upon to assist in providing shelter, hospitalization, food and other assistance, according to the size of the damage done and the number of victims requiring this aid." To Advise Schools Merle G. Moore, CD coordinator for -be Illinois State Department, will discuss "Civil Defense in Schools." The Illinois Public Instruction Department is co-operating in promoting the conference. Harry Shannon, a past president of the Macomb Jaycees, and a former resident in Galesburg, is listed as one of participants for a panel discussion.

Both occupants of the car declared there was no need of medical attention and were not hospitalized, though they apparently sustained bruises and other minor injuries. The car was damaged too badly to be driven.

Though the mission is a community-wide event, all churches joined will use their own denominational materials, program and plans. The program will be fourfold, complete religious census Sunday, Oct. 18; self-study to evaluate church needs and responsibilities; fellowship cultivation and an enlargement plan for the evangelistic and educational program of lay leaders of the churches. Citations from the National Christian Teaching Mission information service shows that the Mission would not detract from the denominational programs but rather enhance them; would throw Christian friendship about un­ churched people through a group like the church to meet their loneliness, guiding them into a deeper fellowship of the church "and to an eternal relationship with the Friend of all mankind." The religious census will be held conneqtion *with the mission giving people a chance to note their church membership or cite preferences.
