If the practice usually followed by bonding companies when persons bonded and suspected' of shortages are missing. Is observed in the present Instance a reward for Information leading to the apprehension of Mr. Walpole will be offered. Whether such steps are now being taken could not be definitely learned today," although It was stated this morning that no officials ot the bonding company or investigators have yet arrived In Adams. Shortage Still Unknown Information that would name any definite amount that a shortage in Mr. Walpole's accounts at the bank might reach was still lacking today Reports prevalent about town still persisted that the shortage at the bank will amount to anywhere from $20,000 to $45,000 and in some instances even higher. These reports were In evidence despite an answer made by Robert E. Noble, one of the vice presidents of the bank, following a trustees' meeting Saturday morning, that "It has not yet been definitely determined" whether there Is a shortage but that there "probably Is one." Earlier In the week Bank Commissioner Arthur Guy at Boston and Judge William S. Morton, president of the bank, stated there were ir regularities In the bank's accounts. A meeting of the board of investment,of the ,bank was held this morning but it was stated that this meeting was a regular weekly one at which only routine business was transacted. Bank Audit Long Delayed During the morning Vice President Noble was asked if the fact that state bank examiners had not visited the local bank In 18 months was unusual, "yes. It Is unusual," Mr, Noble said. Then he added that he has been told the reason for bank examiners not coming here for 18 months was the press of business In the state bank commissioner's department: State bank examiners usually visit banks under their jurisdiction at least once each year, it Is said. The last visit made by state bank examiners, prior to their unannounced arrival last Monday morning, was In December, 1931. The bank's accounts, however, were audited In October, 1932, by Doubleday and company, public accountants. A statement of the bank's condition at the close of business on May 2nd last, was printed In pamphlet form last month and was published In the Transcript on last Saturday. As town treasurer Mr. Walpole was bonded for $35,700 through the Massachusetts Bonding and Insurance company of Boston. Auditors at Work Today The examination of both Ihe bank's accounts and the town treasurer's ; Jbooki was be Inn continued today. treasurer's books today nnd no estimate was given as to how long the task will require. When the job is completed a report will be made to the state department of accounts at Boston. • Reports that Mr. Walpolc has been seen in various places since he left Adams were heard with considerably frequency over the week-end but all were regarded as without foundation In fact. Some of these reports had him In Pittsfleld, others In Bcnnlng- ton, Vt,, and some in Springfield.

Simpson's office In the school building. Mr. Simpson will be at the school each day this week for the purpose of conferring with students and parents. Young Evangelist At Baptist Church Tonight Miss Betty Weakland. 17-year- old Evangelist, will sing and preach at the First Baptist church tonight at 7:45 o'clock.

Veterans Of Foreign Wars Delegates At Convention Herbert Mahar, Thomas Comlskey and Philip O'Brien have returned from Greenfield where they attended the annual state convention of the Massachusetts department, Veterans of Foreign Wars, as delegates from William T. Douglas post of this town. The convention opened on Friday and closed yesterday. "Thumbing" automobile rides from motorists on Columbia street Saturday night resulted in three Adams young men, Harry Trudeau of 11 Gavin avenue, Frank Falger of 9 Weber street, and Teddy Sta- slonskl of 32 Columbia street, ap- jearing before Judge Henry L. Harrington at a session of the Adams district court this morning. The three entered pleas of guilty to charges of standing In the roadway and soliciting rides from passing au- omobiles In violation of a town by- aw. The cases were flled by the court. OrTloar Herbert E. Klontke of the Adams police told the court that the hree defendants were near one of he Berkshire mills on Columbia street Saturday night at 8 o'clock "thumbing" rides. He said he went to them and told them It was unlawful to "thumb" rides and lhat they started off toward Renfrew but stopped some distance away and again began "thumbing." He said he then got MoUrcycle Officer Albert Baran to head them oB and they were taken Into custody. Chief of Police Edward H. Cassldy declared the three defendants knew It was unlawful to "thumb" rides as he had warned two of them two weeks ago against this practice. He expressed the opinion the court should teach the young men a lesson in regard to "thumbing." Two of the defendants, Trudeau and Stasionskl, declared they were endeavoring to obtain a ride to North Adams Saturday night while the third youth had nothing to say. Before filing the cases Judge Harrington said, "I suppose the town of Adams had a reason for passing by-laws prohibiting 'thumbing.' It Is well known that many persons 'thumb' rides in different parts of the country but back in 1929 the town of Adams made 'thumbing' illegal. Boys who have no particular place to go and who reside In town certainly have no need for 'thumb- Ing' rides. If I were to fine these young men the money would have to come from their mothers so under the circumstances I'll file the cases but if they are brought Into court again they'll have to stand the consequences." TWO DAYS LISTED FOR REGISTRATION Gratifying Response by Pupils of Parochial Schools DELEGATES BACK FROM CONVENTION Graduates from the eighth grades of (he Notre Dame and St. Stanislaus schools who are planning lo enter junior high school next September have made a very gratl.'ylng response to the Invitation to register at the principal's office.
