FRIDAY, JANXJARY 28,193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLB, PA. PAGE NINH Life in Beaver County . Faces Drab Future; No Bingo or Bank Nights "O- BEAVER, Jan. 28.--Bank nights and bingo were banned in Beaver county as District Attorney Robert E. McCreary said he intended to start enforcing State laws against gambling. He said he would wait until February 7 to put the ban in effect, because he wanted "to give everybody a change to get out from under." The only exceptions he will allow, Mr. McCreary said, ore affairs run by churches, firemen and other organizations exclusively for charity, and mattress, suit and blanket clubs. "If the people of Beaver county are not in favor o£ a ban on bingo games, they will have to look to the Legislature to make a change," the district attorney said. "My office did not make the laws t against gambling We must enforce the law as it is." As for bank nights, Mr. McCreary said he (thought "most theatre owners are sick of them and will be glad to stop them " He said bank nights are "a gambling institution whk.h is being imposed on the people by outside owners of copyrighted, protected schemes of promotion." "Most of the merchants and show houses have adopted the bank night schemes in good faith and as a matter of self-defense against competitors who have installed the system to gam advantage" Included among the complaints against bingo games, he said, were two from husbands who said "their wives spent all their time playing bingo and didn't cook the meals." Former Mill Run Girl Loses $250 in Holdup Of Columbiana Bank Miss Lottie Arzenberger, daughter of Mrs. Fredia Arzenberger of Mill Bun, manager of a chain store at Columbiana, was robbed of $250 dur- »ng a hold-up of the Citizen's Savings Bank of Columbiana on December 31. Bandits got between $5,000 and $10,000 from the bank. Miss Arzenberger had gone to the bank to deposit money. With two other customers and three employes of the bank she was ordered into a huge vault. "Stay in there 10 minutes" ordered one thug, "or we'll kil! you." Dallas Hepburn, bank wsh- jer, was forced to open the money drawer and the men scooped up the money. The gunmen shut the vault door but did not lock it, then hurried to their car parked in a ncaiby alley, where a third man waited at the wheel with the motor running. The holdup was staged just as the bank was about to close. "" As,Mrs. Hazel Rearick, assistant "cashier, went to the front of the bank 'to lock up, two men suddenly pushed "the door open, and pulling handker- "'chicfs over tneir faces pointed guns at Mrs. Rearick. "This is a holdup," one announced gruffly. Brandishing a .22 caliber target pistol and a blue steel automatic, the bandits quickly herded everyone in- 'to a rear room. While one covered the six with a gun the other took Miss Arzcnbergcr's money together with money and checks from the other customers. Miss Arzcnbcrger has been located at Columbiana for about four years. Collcec Gets Stone Relic.
