Shortly before midnight State Police established road blocks on the principal arteries around the North Shore and dispatched troopers from Andover , and Topsfield barracks, with detailed descriptions of the robbers, and orders to bring them in. The holdup men made their first appearance in East Boston about . 9:30 in the service station at 856 Bennington st. There they held the owner, Fred Battista, 22, at gunpoint and threatened to "blow up the place." Battista was alone when they entered. They asked for the change of a dollar. As Battista was making the change one of the men produced a gun and grenade. "See this canister?" the gunman said, "Well, if you don't turn over all you have here we will blow this place up." Battista gave up $75 and the pair fled in a blue sedan. To Lynn Next At 10:10 the same two men entered a store at 297 Boston st., Lynn.

In Saugus less than an hour later the pair held up the attendant of a service station on the Newburyport turnpike at Walnut st. They threatened Cecil Poore with a pistol and the hand grenades, and escaped with $175. At Classen's Garage, Main st., In the Greenwood section of Wake-geld, the robbers struck again, minutes after the Saugus job. Waving a hand grenade and holding the attendant, John J. Kirnes, 24, of 99 Mt. Vernon av Melrose, at bay they took $35. In Melrose, the men held up the Cities Service gas station at 169 Main st., but. did not produce a hand grenade. They ordered the proprietor, Edward J. Ryan, 34, of av., waKcneia, to pass receipts, amounting .to 25 Myrtle over the some $40. Looked Up Into Gun ' Ryan said the men asked for change of a quarter. He said he bent his head down to delve into his pickets. One of the men said, "look up." He looked up into the barrel of a gun.-A week ago the station was held Gas Attendant Robbed of $70 . i, in Norwood NORWOOD,, Oct 14 A man, described vas about 22, sauntered into a gas station at the corner of Route 1 and Neponset st. tonight, held up the attendant and robbed him of $70, then made a getaway with two accomplices who were outside in a car. The victim was Curtis F. Day, 49, of 345 Neponset st. He said he was in the station when the man walkedjn brandishing a revolver. "Put up your hands. This is a stickup!" he was told. Then he was ordered to hand over the $70 in receipts which he had in his pockets. Meanwhile, two other men stood watch outside with an auto, motor running. Before the holdup man left. Day told police, he ordered him to lie down on the floor. Day said he saw the car speed down Route 1 toward Providence. The holdup man also took a set of spark plugs, Day reported. up by two gunmen. On that occasion Robert Ridley, an attendant, was robbed of $24. Police believe the same two men held up a Saratoga st. service station in East Boston last Thursday night. There they robbed the attendant of $125, using the hand grenade as a weapon. Friday, East Boston police picked up a Jamaica Plain redhead suspected of the crime. He was cleared yesterday and released. Victims described one man as 19 years, 5 feet 8. 150 pounds, wearing a black and red-checked jacket and overalls. The second man is about 18 years, 5 feet 6, 135 pounds, and wore an Army jacket and dungarees. . Western Outpost . When Ft. ; Atkinson was established in what is now Nebraska in 1820 it was America's farthest west military establishment. Retail Grocers Appeal for Halt in Price Boosts Retail grocers in Massachusetts yesterday sent an urgent plea to Dr. Alan Valentine, head of the Economic Stabilization Unit, Washington, to take immediate action to call an industry-wide halt to price increases. "Price increases on essential basic items including soap, milk, bread and related food products have added over a million dollars a year to our Massachusetts families' food store budget," , Malcolm McCabe, state secretary of the Massachusetts Retail Grocer's Association, told a pre-convention meeting of the or ganizations executive board last night. ' "If the retail grocers of this state had not absorbed a substantial part of the price increases in the past 60 aays, anomer million dollars would be added to this figure," McCabe said. ' - "If we are to avoid price control," he said, "it's time for every individual, from producer through processor to distributor, to pitch in and help the corner grocer hold the price line."
