Hall was placed under technical arrest Tuesday evening by Warren Demick, Alexis marshal, for questioning regarding some expense checks he had allegedly cashed. Since April, Robert McKeague, also of Alexis, had failed to get expense checks from the Shrock Fertilizer Co., where he was employed. For sometime it was thought there had been a mixup in the company's sending the checks. However, in July, after inquiring, McKeague found five checks had been sent which he had not received. Demick was notified and began an investigation. Three of the checks were eventually cashed at the Bank of Alexis and one at an Alexis market for a total of $279.85 but the five checks still had not turned up. Demick said this morning employes of the Shrock plant were questioned and signatures checked and it was discovered that Hall as manager of the Alexis plant also had legal access to the post office box to which - Mckeague's expense checks were being mailed. Hall got to the post office before McKeague each time and picked up the checks. Yesterday, Hall's case was referred to Warren County Circuit Court and his. bond was set at $500 on each qf the two charges. He posted the bond, and is awaiting a future hearing. READ THE WANT ADS! Mclntyre Plant Goes To Iowa Site MONMOUTH—It was announced today by Arthur E. Kayser, president of the Monmouth Chamber of Commerce, that O. E. Mcln­ tyre Inc., of New York has decided to locate a new plant in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. It will be recalled that Monmouth and Mount Pleasant have been competing for the location of this plant for many months. In stating the reasons for the decision to locate in Mount Pleasant, Angus P. Mclntyre, vice president of O. E. Mclntyre, indicated that it was felt that Mount Pleasant offered a slight advantage in terms of its being less industrialized than Monmouth. He also pointed out that the present plant in Melrose Park will be maintained, therefore eliminating a need for another Illinois location. Two major accounts of the Mclntyre firm are located in Iowa and are boosters of that state. This was indicated as being another contributing factor in their decision. Although Monmouth has lost this firm, it was pointed out by Mclntyre that the decision was a very tough one to make and that Monmouth has continued to rate very highly in their opinion. All the other important factors such as sites, financing, community spirit, civic and cultural facilities were rated excellent by the Mclntyre company. Mclntyre points out that he would give Monmouth a very high recommendation to any company considering locating in this community. The Chamber of Commerce today issued a statement thanking all persons who actively participated in seeking the acquisition Point Pleasant, Swan Townships Set Policy Meets MONMOUTH — The Point Pleasant Policy Development meeting will be held Friday evening at 7:30 at the home of Edwin Strickler, Farm Bureau director.
