TWENTY-SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MABCH 22 1934 NAME ADDITIONAL BANDIT SUSPECTS Officers Claim Identifications of Two Robberies Are Similar. The. theory that the Sioux Falls, S. Dai., and the local First National bank robberies were committed by the same bandit gang was further strengthened Wednesday night as F. J. Searies, Sioux Falls detective, completed the job of comparing : notes with local officers and left for his home. As result of the joint work of the officers of the two cities the following suspects in the robberies are being sought: Alvin Karpis, 24; 'Fred Barker, 32; Tommy Carroll, 37; Arthur Barker, Martin Wilson and "Baby Face" Nelson, officers have anounced. The identificatons of the men from rogue's galleries by witnesses In the two bank robberies are identical except for one or two instances, the officers stated. That neither John Dillinger nor Frank Carpenter were involved in the holdup is the growing opinion among · officers after more than a week's investigation. R. W.: Nebergall, editor of the Iowa Sheriffs magazine of Des Momes;. visited at the office of Sheriff J. M. Robertson, and collected data in Mason City Thursday .concerning the robbery of the First National bank. He has but -recently finished collecting material about the Sioux Falls robbery. R. L. James, secretary of the school, victim of a bandit's gun, wajfc continuing to show improvement 1 Thursday. What Was This Saw About-Placing of Carts and Horses? This story has a moral, not because it's fashionable for stories to have morals, but because it has one. A carload of telephone poles from Birmingham, Ala., arrived at the .Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroad yards and was unloaded. Thursday morning, to be sure that nothing should happen to the load of poles piled beside the tracks, a foreman conceived the idea of firing the grass so there would be no danger of the poles catching on fire from a switch engine spark. The poles caught on fire while he was. firing the grass.. The .moral is obvious. While half of tie day shift of firemen waa fighting the fire in the pile of telephone poles the remainder of the men at the station were called to 409 Eighth street southeast, v yhere a dormer and two ··Squares^ of root burned in the home owned by Mrs. J. W. Burns. A motor backfire iii the automobile of William F. Oliver, started a small blaze, which was easily extinguished about 10:30 o'clock Thursday morning at 406 First street southwest. Two small holes were burned in the roof of the home of Mrs. L. Stephenson, 106 Twelfth street southeast, about 8:30 o'clock Thursday morning. At 9:30 o'clock Wednesday evening the chimney burned out at the B. L. Harris home, 231 Twentieth street southeast.

GOLDS80ROUGH BILL APPROVED Silver Clause Inserted by Banking Subcommittee of House WASHINGTON, March 22. CM-A house banking subcommittee today approved the Goldsborough bill for the establishment of a federal monetary authority with sole control over the issuance of currency. The measure was amended on motion of Representative Scrugham (D.-Nev.) to include a clause permitting the monetary authority to buy and sell silver so that the value of 371 ,i grains of that metal will be equal to 23.22 grains of pure gold. Chairman Goldsborough (D.-Md.) of the sub-committee said it had been agreed to ask the full committee to meet Monday to consider the revised bill. Under the amended measure, all existing authority to issue or reissue currency, except circulating notes of national banking associations, would expire 60 days after passage of the bill. National banking associations would lose the currency issuing power in three years. The federal monetary authority, besides having control of all currency, also would take over all gold bullion and be empowered to deal in gold on the open market. Mayer of.
