Unusual Stride in Latest Outlet Mere No Clue, to Solution of Mystery Found} Loot Partly Recovered In s long and varied Journalistic life The Leader has seen fit to report many an unusual crime. But never in its 68 odd years of history has it bad to report so strange a case as that which occurred here Monday evening, It was quite dark out, Over the edge of the western sky the bar* est edge of the new moon showed itself. The street lights, as usual, were out. Slowly a darksome figure crawled along the compound fence ot the Malvern Municipal Swimming pool. The figure scrutinised his locale carefully. Quickly he climbed the stout wire fence and let himself down inside, the compound. To the pump house at the north end ot the pool he rushed. Slowly the knife switch 'which controls the, pump motor was closed, the arc making a sharp flash in the dark room. \ But,the thief was not done, Back to i the pools he rushed, pulling the draining plugs. .Thus happened the, great water theft, , When attendants peached/ the pool-sU.Tuesday., < -morning > vthey $&&£" which tfee aiftettsnces between two of the organisations will be ironed out, and general indignation es$tes*e& Invited to the meeting are members of the farm Bureau, the farmers Union, the Grange, the farmers Holiday Association, the Loyal Order ot Picketers, the united Fanners and everyone also interested. Chief item ot interest will be tbe .'expected meeting ot Mito Reno, fiery national bead of the Farmers Holiday association, and otber organisers with evident dif* ference ot opion.

Mr. Savery, who is chairman ot this organisation, and 8 .T. Ladson of Loveland, the secretary, were in Malvern on the business of their organisation, •"The meeting will probably indulge in personalities rather than the problems for which our farm organizations exist," •aid Mr. Savery, "and we believe it will bi better for us to bold a separate tneeting to present to the people of this county the ideals "and principles ot our organisation." He has scheduled such a meeting for Friday, Aug. 4, in the Malvern. Community build- idtfte fatitts, Parts of each would be liked by others and parts heartily disliked. President Sotteevelt, as head of our nation, has formulated A plan toward recovery, It has been heartily criticized and heartily praised. It has certain faults and certain virtues. But above all, it cannot be beneficial unless given ft fair and Whole-hearted trial tt is the daty of the people of this community to assist in giving the National Industrial Recovery Act a fair and whole-hearted trial. How can this be done? Certainly not by fighting every feature which affects you. Certainly not by constant adverse criticism. Certainly not by grudgingly complying with only the enforced and absolutely necessary features. A fair trial means that each of us — every employe as well as every employer, every consumer and buyer as well as every producer and seller — must make a liberal and friendly interpretation of the act and comply with it completely and whole-heartedly. It is notveasy to change the habits of a lifetime, It is not easy to revise age-old ideas of industry and economy. But it is necessary to accept the basic idea of this new plan and for each of us to do everything possible to advance and promote the provisions of the Recovery Act. Your own part may seem infiniteeimally small and unimportant —80 minute perhaps as to be of no positive value. Yet the whole of the recovery must be built not upon the cooperation of the few large,industrial leaders but, upon the cooperation of the millions of citizens like yourself. Upon you will the recovery plan succeed or fail. The Malvern Community club is having a meeting this evening for business men and women and citizens to make plans for cooperating with the National Industry Recovery Act in Malvern. Other communities of the county, will hold similar meetings shortly.
