Joe Kollaseh of Swea City would like to meet up with that gypsy family that slopped their car along the county road a half mile north of Swea City, Monday. So would the county sheriff's office. Joe said he was walking along when a car stopped, and oul jumped a gyspy woman, who began gesturing and poking him in the chest, while Ihe man also did some fast chattering, while two gypsy children looked on from the car. Joe thought maybe they wanted road directions, but when they suddenly jumped into their car and drove away, he began taking inventory. A wallet with S81 in it which he carried in a breast pocket was missing. The gypsies, loo, were still missing as of Wednesday.

The Kockk'is somehow Iienr4 about tile tabling of the bill, ami lather and son drove into Swe;i City looking for K'>i!u : -c!i.

Threat Of Jail Kollaseh filed the charge following the incident, and the Kocklers were haled into court for a preliminary hearing, Monday evening, with the hearing then set for Wednesday morning after each man had posted a $.~i() bond. During this Monday night session, the Kocklers were still incensed, and County Attorney Nitchals finally told the father that if he didn't sit down ancl keep quiet he'd have to put him 'n jail, which calmed down the proceedings. After the fine was paid by the elder Kockler, in cash. Wednesday, and tlii- case was dismissed by the J. P. Kollaseh said that he intended to file a civil action for damages.
