In Atlanta, they p,ol n hot tip that a laundry safe was to be burglarized in the week hours. A detective squad armed ilscll with an arsenal and took up .strategic positions in the darkened laur.dry office. Sure enough, four biirgl ._ into the building before dawn and went to work oil the safe. Tha cniuiy officer.? held their firrj and crept up softly behind the v.;fe- crackers to catch them in the ac'.. With officers breathing down their necks, the bllrgl.ns finnUy jimniicd open the door—sir.'.l pcof! Chokini; smoke spurted in tils faces of cops and robbers Both factions started banking away with shotguns and pistols and '.he burglars escaped under tlie smoke screen. Tlie proprietor of ihe laundry had neglected to tell Iho officers that he attached a couple of teargas shells to the insWc of the safe door just to make assurance doubly sure. The police cut a mite of consolation later whe.i U'.ey nabbed one of the susp<:ctc-l safecrackers, John Schmidt. Down in New Orleans, the police got another hot «1>—the locv.lioti of a bookie joint. They made a quick rai'J-, but while the ix>lice were cunil: the front door, the hookies bulling out the back wincluv/ vin a portable ladder. The police noted clgnL U'ie- phones in the room, ;es' of which were ringing. Aha. they said, we'll take down the nam"S of she i:iu:;uiy, bookies from the customers and nab them.
