"Kind of be on the lookout for those two fellows, Len," he said. Olson read the circular, noted ths license number believed to be on the fugitive's automobile. "And then I forgot all about it," Olson said Thursday, "until I looked up from my work Saturday and saw a car bearing that license number pull into town." Hurries to Mayor. Olson hurried to Mayor Herbert Anstein. Together' they hurried to Denison for Sheriff Greene. On the way back they met Walker and Seger. In their car the sheriff found burglary tools and guns. Postal Inspector John Streich reported Olson's eye for figures and he may be rewarded since the government offered a reward for the arrest and conviction of Walker and Seger. "These two," Streich said, "are believed to be members of a gang which has stolen more than $9.000 in bonds and cash from the mails, including the looting of a mail pouch at Rockwell City and the holdup of a railroad station agent at LeMars." 2 lowans Gave to Fund of Crusaders WASHINGTON, UP)--The lobby committee disclosed that two lowans contributed to the fund of the Crusaders, a national organization.
