Confidence Game Comes To A Halt WHEATON, El. (UPI)-A suspicious lawyer and a curious police chief thWa'rted'.an intricate .confidence game aimed at bilking a banker and .religious tracts publisher .of. $2 .million,, .it was •re- ; vealed Tuesday.>.. " .' :-. ; ;•'•••' Du Page County State's Atty. William Bauer said the alleged attempt to defraud. Robert Van Campen, board chairman of the Hitchcock Press and vice president of the Cary'-Wheaton Bank, was under'investigation. Bauer said the attempt to obtain $2 million from. Van Campen for patent rights to a revolutionary fertilizer process would have been a "monumental swindle." '• Several.months; ago Van Campen was 'approached by a man claiming to represent the Minneapolis, Minn., patent owner of a fertilizer 'which speeded plant growth -'by as much as 600 per cent. The' man.. .claimed that, the $2 million- purchase price would be repaid many'times over from $18 million in royalties due on the process. , ' Van Campen set up a. corpora tion and .ordered his attorneys to investigate the patent. While the investigation was being conducted a stranger appeared, He ' claimed to represent a St. Louis, Mo,, client who would pay $3,850,000 for |he patent if Van Campen could furnish clear title. One of the Van Campen atfor. neys became suspicious and asked Wheaton Police Chief Herb While to make inquiries. White 'became curious about telephone calls made by the would-be patent buyer. The police .chief found that; the telephone calls were being made to the man who wanted to sell the patent to Van Campen. The mysterious 1 stranger, who had shown a portfolio which he 1 claimed contained certified checks for the $3,350,000 his client would pay for the patent, suddenly vanished after dropping off the portfolio at'the police station in. near. ;by La Grange. ;. The man said the portfolio contained materials of interest to the Wheaton police department. When, 'the portfolio was opened it,was found to contain pieces 'of .cardboard. ' Bauer said there -have'been; 1 no- charges filed in the case: but the parties involved will have "some tall explaining to do" if they are to avoid an appearance before the grand jury.
