Two Boys, 15, Steal, Wreck, Abandon Auto Two runaway boys, arrested in Galesburg, reportedly have admitted stealing a station wagon in Elgin, damaging it in a collision, leaving the accident scene and then abandoning the vehicle. Both 15 years old, they are Lowis Dean Holm and Walton Leon Martin, both of Algonquin RFD 1. Arrested with the pair was William G. Chaney, 16, of Lansing, Mich., who ran away Tuesday from the Michigan State Hospital at Kalamazoo, according to police. Elgin police arrived this morning to return Holm and Martin to face auto larceny charges. Chaney is being held in Galesburg for Michigan authorities. Suspected as Runaways Galesburg police arrested the trio on suspicion in the Public Square Thursday at 5:14 p.m. Arresting officers had not learned that a car had been stolen in Elgin. The dirty appearances of the youths, however, in'dicated that they might be runaways. At the station, the trio gave the following account, according to police. Holm and Martin ran away from home Oct. 2 and the same night stole a 1951 station wagon in Elgin. While driving the stolen vehicle, they collided with a car. They fled the scene and abandoned the station wagon in Argo. Hopped Freight The two 15-year-old youths went to Chicago where they encountered Chaney, who joined them. The three of them hopped a Burlington freight train to Galesburg, arriving Thursday about noon. Chaney is the son of Mrs. Ernestine Gilroy of Lansing, Mich., and has been in about < fourteen boarding homes. He escaped in 1950 from a boys' home in Michigan and stole an auto, but was captured. Parents of the Algonquin youths are Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Holm and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Martin. Elgin police estimated damage to the stolen station wagon at $300 Galesburg Rover Boy Home After Three Years inEurvpe ly JOHN ROGERS One Galesburg b6y doesn't have to read adventure tales for thrills. He recently sailed back to America In an 83-foot boat after three adventuresome years in Europe. Robert Inness, 15, son of Mrs. Clarice Inness, now wants to again oe a Midwest youth and has enrolled in Roosevelt Military Academy at Aledo. His maternal grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Orval E. Way, 78 N. Farnham St In case fellow cadets may wonder about his recent experiences or be puzzled by his traces of mixed British-Italian accent, here is his story. It is authenticated by his mother, who made the trip with him, and by feature reports in two Washington, D. C, newspapers. Robert or "Spike," as he Is better known, began his adventure June 30, 1950, when at the age of 12 he sailed with his mother and other "crewmen" on board a converted Navy patrol boat. At the helm was Air Force Col. Draper F. Henry who owned the Windsom, which was powered by two 200- horsepower diesel engines. Crossing Uneventful It was a group of friends, with Spike the only minor, which braved the Atlantic and arrived in England after a comparatively uneventful 34 days. Spike attended School in England for a year, joining his mother in touring the island. The next year the travelers sailed for Italy where Mrs. Inness was employed in Florence as a secretary in N. A. T. O. She formerly had a position in the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D. C. Loses British Accent Spike and his mother found Italy "warm and friendly," and the Galesburg boy quickly lost most of the British accent he had acquired the previous year. He began to speak Italian fluently. The trip abroad had been un-j usual in many ways. One unique aspect was that the colonel reported for an assignment overseas by small private carrier, the first U. S. Air Force officer to do so. Gen George S. Patton, an Army man, had accomplished a similar feat years earlier. For the return voyage three years after leaving America, the crew was comprised of Mrs. Inness and Spike, Col. Henry, author John Holt, Giovanni Del Pistoia of Italy, James W. Titus, an engineer with the Naval Research Labora tory, and Mrs. Titus. • Returns With Bride Titus had made the original sailing to Europe, but returned to the United States. Learning later that his sea comrades were preparing to set sail for the return trip he and his new bride flew back to Europe to be able to board the Windsom. For several days the voyage was monotonously placid. The • small craft followed almost exactly the route sailed by Christopher Columbus 461 years earlier.

Erickson of the engineering firm of Alvord, Burdick and Howson of Chicago, which firm is conducting the citywide sewer survey here, was expected in the city today and was to remain here Saturday, it was stated today by City Floyd Burrell. ling $35,000 for injuries allegedly A meeting to which all persons | rustained when he . 8 y interested in the city's sewer prob- 1CLt - nea lems are invited, is scheduled for five aboard. The seven crewmen divided into three shifts of four hours on duty and eight off. Each one became a veteran sailor, engineman and c6ok. They also learned the philosophy of the sea which alternated from calm swells to rough, angry waves. Anchor Cable Snaps At Cape Verde, high winds and waves snapped an anchor cable, but native boys dived and retrieved the chain. At Gibraltar, strong currents again imperiled the boat. A piece of driftwood rammed through the 1>£-inch-thick wooden hull of the Windsom, ne cessitating putting in for repairs, The American travelers received an unexpected thrill in the Canaries when the ship was niis- taken for a smuggling craft because smugglers used similar vessels. A man in a small boat hailed the Windsom and inquired of Col. Henry, "What do you have to ell?" Greatest of the experiences was sudden furious storm which broke across the vessel's path within 50 miles of the North Carolina coast. Expert seamanship of the then-seasoned sailors was required to bring the Windsom through. Mother in Washington Spike's mother has returned to Washington. Mother and son are very happy to be back in America. She plans to return to Galesburg often to visit her son during his leaves from the academy in Aledo What were the practical benefits of the trip abroad? Mrs. Inness believes that the experiences were priceless for her son. He learned self-reliance aboard shipj Visits in foreign countries taught him tolerance and an ability to adapt himself to new situations. They liked Italy best, particu larly Florence, of all the countries they visited. They found the Italians warm and sincere. No Praise From British Mrs. Inness encountered one striking example of the traditional self-pride in British seamanship. When interviewed by English re porters she was surprised to hear one say, "Of course you understand that your voyage is unusual only because you Americans did it. We British, have of course made even more hazardous sailings." Would the mother and son want to make again a tour of many thou sand miles in a small craft? No, definitely not, because the discom forts are too great. But both agree that they wouldn't have missed it for all the corn in Illinois and Iowa. Slate School Building Art Exhibition An exhibition of photographs, drawings, plans and models of outstanding modern American schools will open Sunday noon here in the Community Lounge of the Y.M.C.A Building.

Ruedig received information today that the iwomen had called at the home of Mrs. Leroy Parrish in Dahinda. Mrs. Parrish told a reporter todiy that only her daughter, Martha, 14, was at home when the; pair called. They reportedly told her that they were gath- erjhg money to reduce the national debt. Mrs. Parrish also said that a man, believed to be a companion of the women, later called at the residence of Elmer Howard and attempted to sell magazine subscriptions.
