TUESDAY, JUNE 88, 1958 BLYTHEVILM5 (ARK.)' COURIER NEW! PAGE NTNI Young Bandits Entertain Victims NEW YORK (AP) — Four young bandits — with time on their hands and larceny on their minds — staged a "surprise party" yesterday for a dentist, a woman physician and ' 18 others. The quartet took over for four hours the Brooklyn house used by the dentist and physician, admitting 15 patients as they arrived, robbing them of jewels and cash, nnd keeping them prisoner through the siege. But the four young men, before fleeing in fright when the physician fainted, treated their victims to drinks and snacks and even re- Burned some of their loot at the request of three patients. It all started late in the afternoon in the three-story house owned by Dr. Sonya A. Monen, SO. She lives there and has an office there. The dentist, Dr. Irving K. Madow, rents rooms there for an office. Carried Knives The four robbers, apparently In their late teens or early 20s, first invaded the dentist's ground floor offices. One youth held a pistol, two others carried switchblade knives. Madow and a patient he was attending were promptly herded into Dr. Monen's dining room. Then the robbers rounded up a maid and Dr. Monen's daughter, Mrs. Isabel Whitehall, who also happened to be in the house at the time. Dr. Monen was absent. At first, the bandit quartet went about their business in a deter- bound and gagged the four persons With adhesive tape. However, after a half hour, when the victims complained of thirst, the intruders released them. Soon patients started arriving. The robbers greeted them and took them Into the dining room. Refreshments The thieves split up, a pair ransacking the house while the others mined and rough manner. They house. stood guard in the dining room. During the ordeal, the bandits raided Dr. Monen's refrigerator and passed out beer and soft drinks, crackers, cheese and raw- carrots to their "guests." The quartet leisurely relieved their captives of cash and jewelry. But they- returned some watches and rings of modest value to the three patients, who pleaded they be allowed to' keep the articles. It was about 7:30 p. rn. when Dr. taoney returned to her home and found the "party" going on. She too was greeted by a robber, who demanded that she open a j safe in a hall closet. Her reply was a scream. Then she collapsed. Obviously alarmed, the robbers made a hasty departure. An Inventory by their victims disclosed that the lour obtained loot consisting of $345 and a S500 cocktail ring. Policeisaid they apparently took nothing from the Italian Beauty, Brains to Mix ROME l»—Of all things, they're going to ask Italian beauty contest entrants to pass an Intelligence test. At least, sponsors of the annual "Miss Italia" contests manage to keep a serious face while saying: 'Just being beautiful Isn't enough. Prom now on contestants will have to take a general culture examination. It's the sort of thing intended to show whether they have the qualities of becoming a good family mother." Of course, — says the sponsors of the contest, which in past years has turned out such winners as the now famous movie pin-up girls Gina Lollobrigida, Silvana Pampa- nnl, Sflvana Mangano and Lucia Bose, there'll still be that last look — over in a bathing suit.
