MONDAY, SEI'TEMIJEK 29, 1947 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Robbers Obtain $200,000 Haul Swank Club Raided By Eight Masked Men Heavily Armed CLEVELAND. Sept. 29. (UP) — A gang of hooded men, carrying submachine guns and revolver.?, iorc- «l their way into the swank Lake Coimly Mounds Club early today, held up some 300 patrons and escaped in slolen cars with loot csli- niaicd at J203.COO. The first o! the eight masked men walked into Ihe private club as 'singer Mary Healy. 'Aifc of comedian Peter Lind Hayes, started to drag her husband from .1 table as Part ol their act. 'flic audience roared with laughter as the first robber entered ami announced "this is a stickup, stay in your seats." The singer turned lo the masked man and told him to heh.rvc himself or leave the club. Instead he shot a volley from his German machine pi.stol into the ce'liny and the rest of the gang entered. All wore yrccn laligue vi;;s and had blacfc slocking masks over their heads, except ;;ie leader who wore n gray felt hat. He announced again Ihat it was a slick:!;! and said "everybody sit and ne one will get hurt." The robbers, addressing each other by numbers instead of names, left one man to guard the dining room patrons and while Ih,: rest walked into the gambling room. The players were lined up and IDld to empty their pockets on tables. Bandits Short-Tempered One woman who was slow in (ak- ing off a diamond ring war commanded to "set that thin;; of[ or we'll have to chop off your ringev." Hays, who said he had just lest his last S4 on slot machines, borrowed MO from a man standing in line next to him to slve to the rob- fcvcrs. "I thought I'd better have something to give them. They were too short-tempered to suit, me," Hayes I said. " | • The rcbbcrs grabbed up the money and jjwelry pitcd en llie tables and wciu back into the dining room. A clrnnk at one table, still believing the whole thing \vas a pag. said "This happened in the first show. Lu's go home." One ol the masked men grabbed the drunk, marched him into a .vde room and lired one shot from his pistol. The shot later was 'mmd to have been fired into th-j ceiling, and the drunk was unharmed. The manager of the club. Buck Shaffner, was marched into his office to open the cash dra'.vsr. The lock failed to open and one of the uicn shot it off with a burst from ins gun. Two other robbers, meantime. | -went through the upstairs dressing rooms of the club. When they returned the leader said' "Let's go" and the men ba-ked out,, jumped into patrons' autos and roared au'ay. Officials of the club did not report tin: robbery and police learned o[ it when they received calls from three persons whose autos were taken in the getaway.
