TIGHT CORDON DRAWN Every Highway Leading Out of Stats Is Under a Strict Guard. (I!y I'nilcil I'n-.-s>. Tacoma, Wash., June :i.—Peace officers of the government and state placed Washington under a . virtual slate of singe today as they collaborated in one great effort to apprehend the gang that stole Ceorge Weyerhaeuser, !', and turned him back to his millionaire parents for JJiin.iKlil. Every highway lending from tho state was patrolled by deputy, sheriffs and state police, rifles un- slung. ready for use.

He may accept no fees and his patients will receive treatment free of charge.

Officers seemed confident their ciu:irr_y-slill was within tho limits of the state, probably in the area where they released' George Saturday morning with a dollar bill, blanketh and an admonition to wait for his dad. While the area was so blotted up that none could leave without being identified or questioned, federal agents spread another trap—the same one that netted Hriiuo Richard Ilauptmann in tlur Lindbergh case. This trap was lined with $5, $10. and $L'U Federal ' Reserve notes, the money paid by F. ;R, Titcomb, uncle of the kidnaped boy. for his release. Booklets arrived by airplane from Washington listing every one of the bills by its serial number. These were to be distributed j to banks throughout the nation with the request that the nearest department of justice office be notified should one of the notes appear. While the booklets were prepared for mailing justice agents massed in Tacoma awaited the arrival from Chicago of Volney Davis, a member of the Karpis gang which is believed involved in the kidnaping. While a spokesman for ' the agents said Davis was wanted in this case, It was considered possible he would be questioned closely on his knowledge of the « wereabout of Alvin Karpis, Harry Campbell and other members of the notorious gang, the only one not yet crushed by the federal men. Another man was. in custory but not much importance was attached to his arrest. He is 54- year-old George Powell, former newspaperman who was committed to a state hospital two years ago after confessing a plot to kidnap a Seattle boy. Department of justice^ agents likewise attached little imptor* tance to the, wild chase through the bills of Oregon for a tan seV dan similar to the one described by young-Weyerhaeuser as the type-used by his abductors. The sedan shot through, a* don* J00>1H>U C & at a speed than* 90 "miles an hour pursuers. Althoi Wlllla SEVERAL HAVE SIGNED That the city council at its meeting Wednesday night. June 12, will be asked to take a stand on the question of liquor by the drink, sales in Tipton was evidenced Monday when petitions were circulated for signers, asking that lawful sales be permitted. As the matter stands now Tip-j ton is dry as to sale by drink, but it is asserted that already there j is evidence of bootleg activities in j the city and that other well I known bootleggers are keeping j eye on the situation. Those hav-1 ing the petitions assert that not| only the revenue from the per-1 mils is lost but that proper enforcement is not so easy as under the license plan. They also say that persons who buy of bootleggers will drink liquor and then visit the beer sales rooms, causing reflection on persons selling beer. Monday one dealer informed a Tribune man that so far as he was concerned he did not care what action the council took in the matter but If sales were' allowed in some towns and not here it would not benefit Tipton to keep out the liquor by drink, especially when 1 bootleggers could get it in handily. ; Mayor Compton who has been in New York .for the past week will be home Friday of this week and will be here when the council acts on the petition if it is presented as planned. The council already has a petition bearing a number of signatures asking that the council not pass an ordinance permitting the sale by drink. Sheriff -Cardwell held three sheriff sales Saturday among them being the garage property at Kempton occupied by Loyze hayp which was purchased by Jr. %V. L. Hughes, well known oldsmith veterinarian. The property was sold on' a judgment obtained in the Tipton circuit court. The Farmers Loan & Trust Company bought the Ellis Garage property corner of East and Jefferson street and the Ed Alley property on Maple street, judgments and foreclosure both having been' taken in circuit court.
