TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 21 1936 this lias been the only successful .approach to date. Confident ol Rescue Dwyer said he was confident the men were "in as good physical condition as could be expected" arid that they would be rescued aJive. With desperate rescue workers still uncertain as to when they ·would be able to break 1 through to the underground pit, Rr. Robertson asked .that 'his,. Charles Ivey of London, Ont.,"come to the tube to take down instructions. Those instructions were for what should be done in the event the rescue crew failed to reach the tomb in time. SEND RADIUM DIRECTION FINDING EQUIPMENT TORONTO, UP)--An Ontario government airforce plane started for Moose river Tuesday carrying radium direction finding equipment for-use in the attempted rescue of WD NEVER THINK I SCRUBBED AND BOILED THESE CLOTHES.

The new equipment was offered by Dr. G. B. Richards, radiologist of the'Toronto general hospital and colleague of Dr. D. E. Robertson, one of the Imprisoned men. Whether the equipment would be used, however, is problematical since Dr. J. Gordon Gallie of Toronto, now at the mine, informed Premier Hepburn's office after the plane had left, that rescue workers were certain to be digging in the right direction and that the radium set probably would not be used. Girl Says She Had No Supper but Lord Will Care for Her WATERLOO, UP--"1 have had no supper, but the Lord will take care of me," said a slight, curly haired girl of about 18 to a group of firemen at fire station No. 4 Monday night. She was wearing light colored pajamas; a short blue jacket and no hat. Refusing to give her name or address, she sang several songs, and prayed. Her mother was in a hospital, she said, but she would not say which one. The girl said she had no money and would sleep outdoors. The firemen took up a collection of small change and gave it to the girl. She stepped out the door and vanished. Youth Charged With . Reckless Driving as Police Probe Thefts CEDAR RAPIDS, UF--Police are holding Leonard Anderson, 19, of Iftsva City on a reckless driving -charge pending investigation of two automobile thefts and accidents involving each car. Anderson was brought to Cedar Rapids by Iowa City policemen Monday night when they picked him up after a car stolen here earlier in the evening had' been wrecked on highway .161 12 miles north of Iowa City. In the meantime Simon Gongwer reported his machine had been struck by- a .car bearing Illinois license plates. He later .identified Anderson as driver of the car and police learned this machine, owned by K. G. Sturdevant of Rock Island, had been stolen in that city late Monday afternoon. Schilling Funeral Thursday. DES MOINES, UP)--Burial will be held Thursday in State Center for E. H. Schilling, 73 year old State Center banker, who died in a hospital her of complications resulting from a liver infection. FREW TUCKER'S COWS PEACEFUL Avoid Attacks of "Jitters" He Claims Were Caused by Airplanes. IOWA CITY, (.7)--Frew A. Tucker's cows chewed their cuds contentedly Tuesday without %ny attacks of the "jitters" he claims they had every time a plane flew low over his field. United Airline passenger planes continued to "ignore" the Iowa City airport which adjoins his field and the company completed reduction of its airport staff to two employes and eliminated most of its local activities. 4 Employes Transferred. Four airport employes were transferred to other cities,: all radio, weather and plane servicing activities were discontinued, and it was indicated that only one man may be'left here by the company if a soultion to the airport difficulties is not found. A month ago Monday United Airlines dropped Iowa City as a stopping place for its passenger lines when' Tucker renewed his one-man war against planes he claimed were flying low over his field and frightening his stock. Previous Altercation. An injunction which was the out- cor of a previous altercation with airport officials prevented Tucker from erecting a 25 foot pole on his land in a line with airport runways. So Tucker raised a 24 foot pole on the edge of the field and topped it with a red, flag. United Airline officers said they considered the pole dangerous to planes and announced the airpo"rt would be ignored until it was torn down or some other provision made. City officials are seeking federal WPA funds to assist in financing a 625 foot extension to the runways to afford a greated landing area for the planes. Confirm Hopkins as Iowa PWA Director WASHINGTON. OP)--The senate Monday confirmed the nomination of P. Frank Hopkins as state director of the public works administration for Iowa.

SIOUX CITY, LT) -- Iowa threw the full force of its chief law en- orcement v agencies Tuesday into a earch for four nervous gunmen who ooted the suburban Momingside .tale bank of $3,292. Highway patrolmen, sheriff's of- icers, local police and an agent of he state bureau of investigation oined in the hunt. The search centered Monday night n the Denison area to which the "·unmen headed after strewing nails n the highway behind them to de- ay pursuit. State Agent Paul Gruber, how- ver, expressed a belief the robbers ; ay have doubled back and headed nto South Dakota. John Hattery, highway patrol hief, also held the opinion that the landits have doubled back into South Dakota or Minnesota with- ut shifting to another car. If they md abandoned their car -in Iowa, le said, "the chances are it would have been found .by now." After Closing Hours. The robbery was executed Monday afternoon shortly after closing lours. The gunmen drew up to the jank in a maroon colored (Buick) iedan bearing Indiana license plates. One of them remained in the car as the others entered the bank, drew their guns, scooped up all available cash after failing to open he vault, herded four hostages into the getaway car and fled. The hostages--John Scott, Jr., president of the bank; W. L. Ayres, cashier; Iva Hubbard, stenographer, and James David, handy man--were released unharmed at the edge of he suburb. Smash Rear Window. As the getaway car fled the scene, ne of the robbers smashed the rear vindow and pointed warning guns at closeby motorists. As the car ped along Morningside avenue, Mo-, orcycle Policeman Edward Ballard, escorting a funeral . procession, topped the car and warned: "Slow down, buddy. You're going oo fast." Not realizing the men vere robbers, Ballard reprimanded hem for speeding and told them to go ahead, but watch your step." Sheriff's officers and highway pa- rolmen spread a net around the Denison area, but an all night earch failed to yield their quarry. Indiana License Plates. Witnesses said the getaway car lore Indiana license plates 455-087, )ut at Indianapolis Lilly Snowber- g-er of Ashley, Ind., said -the plates were issued to her and were still, on her'car..' .- · .'.-.;.·;.· -'. ' ··- - ," One.of the;gunnien fired at Dcfn- ald Nissen, assistant cashier, wh'en tfissen attempted to touch off a tear gas apparatus. The shot went wild and the tear gas apparatus failed to 'unction. Apparently unnoticed by the gunmen during the holdup, Mrs. Rose Bagley, a teller, ducked under a counter when the men entered the aank. She also unsuccessfully attempted to release the tear gas. First 1936 Holdup. ' The robbery was Iowa's first bank holdup this year. The four hostages described the gunmen as follows: Driver--About five feet, six inches tall, 30, medium complexion, dark hat and suit. Man sitting with driver--Resembled driver closely and issued orders to the'other three. One of the men in the rear seat was about the same age and height as the other two. The other man was older than the others. The hostages and the witnesses were impressed by the nervousness of the gunmen. Scott said "what impressed me most was the nervousness of the holdup men. They appeared more nervous than the em- ployes of the bank and shouted several contradictory orders to each other during the holdup, x x x I saw in the car a sack that looked like it might have covered a machine gun. The robbery, did not seem to be very well planned." Ordered to Lie Down. Ayers said "the first I knew of the holdup was when I looked up from my desk and a man stuck a gun in my ribs and ordered me to lie down, on the floor. I did not know what happened after that until he ordered me to stand up. The gun in the bandit's hand was shaking badly." Mrs. Hubbard said one of the men put his arm around her when they walked to the car and his warning, " 'take it easy' seemed almost funny because he was shaking so much himself." BROADCAST DESCRIPTION OF STOLEN AUTOMOBILE DES MOINES, UP)--The state bureau of investigation broadcast Tuesday the description of an automobile stolen in Minneapolis, April 19, which the bureau said tallied with the description of the car used by Sioux City bank robbers Monday. Descriptions of two men wanted for stealing the car also were broadcast. These men tallied with two of the bank robbers,"the bureau reported. The car: "Dark (Buick) sedan with trunk on rear." The men: "One about 30, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weight 175 p o u n d s , well ddressed. The other about 33. 5 feet, 10 inches tall, sloppy appearance."

Musmanno Monday dismissed charges of embezzlement, and nr-u- feasance brought against Mayor William N. McNair. The mayor, who spent a hilarious hour in jail Saturday, signed an order returning $100 to a man arrested in recent raids on "numbers" writers and fined that amount by a magistrate. It was the mayor's refusal to sign the order which led to his arrest under a law enacted by the legislature in I860. No Clews Found to Ghouls Who Entered Private Mausoleum DAVENPORT, (.T)--Police Tuesday said they were without clews :o the ghouls who entered a private mausoleum in Fairmount cemetery some time prior to Saturday mora- "ng. Nothing of value was taken, as far as could be learned and after laking fingerprints from giass in the vault, officers said they were convinced that it was the work of some boys. One burial vault was entered and efforts were made to break into six others. Police theorized that the ghouls were after jewelry. A relative visiting one of the graves Saturday discovered ;the . depredations .and reported to C, C. Neff, cemetery sexton, who. called police. The matter was kept secret in the hope that the ghouls would return Saturday or Sunday night to complete their robbery and would walk into a police trap. Several relatives of those buried in the private mausoleum, wh'ich is lociited in a ravine, reported nothing was taken.
