WES IDUNG BANDIT JSWOUNDED AS EDUP EARS Boy, 15, Caught After Shooting Storekeeper's Son in Effort To Escape Arrest The second accused bandit, Vernon Powell, 16, who attempted to hold up the Carlson grocery on Mt, Vernon avenue early last night was arrested near midnight at Lake Arrowhead. Powell was driving an automobile which O. L. Martin of 267 South K street reported as stolen earlier in the night on Thirteenth street, near H street. A 15-year-old bandit and his captor were shot in an exchange of pistol and shotgun fire, another youthful highwayman escaped, and two recent holdups and one automobile theft were cleared up last night as the result of an attempted holdup at the Carlson grocery store, 1347 Mt. Vernon avenue. Roy Carlson, 18, son of the grocery owner, Albin Carlson, was in St. Bernardine hospital with a pistol bullet wound in the right leg; one of the "baby bandits," William Berner, of Long Beach, was in county hospital wounded in the leg, and at a late hour police squads were hunting Vernon Powell, 15, of Long Beach, Berner's asserted ac complice. The entire Mt. Vernon avenue district was aroused by the shotgun and pistol fire that followed the holdup attempt at 8 p. m. A police squad that raced to the scene took Berner into custody, removed young Carlson to the hospital and then launched the search for Powell Confess Holdup of Service Station Berner confessed, according to the police, that he and Powell were the two highwaymen who held up and robbed William Damlln at his service station, 1098 Mt. Vernon avenue, last Saturday night, taking $10 from him. The wounded prisoner also confessed, the police said, that the pair burglarized a sporting goods store in Long Beach two weeks ago Sunday night, stealing about 20 guns and other articles. The young bandits entered the Carlson store about 8 p. m., ordered two packages of cigarets, and when Albin Carlson turned to serve them, they covered him with .32 automatic pistols and ordered him to "stick 'em up," Instead, Carlson dropped behind a counter and came up with a shotgun leveled at the bandits. The boy robbers turned and fled as Carlson fired one shot after them. Roy Carlson then ran to his father's car in front of the store, and started after the fleeing bandits, who ran to Fourteenth street and there turned eastward from Mt. Vernon avenue. Young Carlson caught up with them, and leaped from the automobile to seize them as they opened fire on him with their guns. Didn't Want to Kill Young Bandits The store owner's son closed with Berner, and as they grappled Berner shot him in the leg with his pistol. At this juncture the senior Carlson came on the run with the shotgun, and discharged a load of buckshot at Berner, the shot piercing his legs below the hips Police said Carlson could have shot both the bandits fatally but withheld his fire because he "did not want to kill them."

TO SLASH COST Tax Committees of Chambers of Commerce Vote Request for Lower Expenditures Representing tax committees through the chambers of commerce in Chino, San Bernardino, Redlands and Ontario, delegates met at Ontario Tuesday night and recommended a reduction of 20 per cent in school expenditures to the various boards of the county. Harry S. Webster, of San Bernardino, made the motion for the recommendation which was unanimously adopted by the Joint committee. Under the plan to be suggested, the cut should be effected by a 10 per cent salary cut and a 10 per cent slash in school operating expenses, curtailment of unnecessary activities and consolidation of departments. The committee also voted to support all chambers of commerce in the economy program now being considered by the board of supervisors. Each chamber, through its executive board, will discuss the questions brought before the meeting.
