MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 6 1936 SEVEN SUSPECT IS NOT ZROSTLIK KILLER Gremmers State Picture of Fanning Is Not That . of Bandit. GARNER, Jan. 6.--Members of the Eppo Gremmer family in Orthel township west of Britt said Saturday night that Harold Fanning-, held at Kansas City, was not one of the bandits who held them captive sev- .eral hours after- slaying James Zrostlik, Britt farmer. Sheriff E. P. Hanson took pictures from the Kansas City police department of the suspect to them. The Gremmers said the picture bore no resemblance to the tall man in the trio of bandits. The large photographs sent here made it easy for the Gremmers to determine positively that this was not the man. The man who held them prisoner was not as tall as Fanning and the facial features bore no resemblance, they said. Meanwhile, county and state officers declared they would continue vigilantly in the search of the bandits who Nov. 2 shot the young Britt farmer as he was taking his wife, and baby to All Saints day service at the Catholic church at Duncan. That the bandits may have 'a. hideout in North Iowa and southern Minnesota and be responsible for five bank robberies in North Iowa is believed by many officers. Mrs. Zrostlik, who has lost 20 pounds, recalls with terror the fatai shooting of her husband and sometimes dreams of the crime. She is still unable to see out of her right eye and a piece of glass is working its way out now. Another piece of glass, which entered her eye as the bandits fired and shattered the windshield of the car, was removed while she was in a Mason City hospital. For weeks after the shooting, her small son cried whenever he was placed in an automobile.

Iowa is one of the 6 states that show a 20% gain. In 1917 the old slogan was win the war at any cost. In 1933 the cry went up, save us, save us, what are we going to do? P. S.
