Duffy of 5443 Palo Verde St., Montclair, Tuesday thought his 24-year search for a lost wallet containing a $20 bill and other identification had ended. Duffy received a call Tuesday from Ontario police who notified him that an Ontario girl Maria Garcia, 17, of 910 E. Elma St., had found a wallet belonging to him. Duffy could hardly believe that the wallet he had lost so long ago had finally turned up. On picking up the wallet, Duffy was a bit‘disappointed because as it turned out the “wallet” was a packet of papers, .including his military discharge papers and a 1950 Florida fishing license. Duffy said he remembered that the papers were once stored in the old Harry Nelson Blacksmith Shop basement on N. Euclid Avenue. He said that some time ago a number of people, including himself, who were using the basement of the shop for storage, were asked to move their property. He said he may have lest the papers, and possibly his wallet, while moving the items. Although he still hasn’t found his wallet, Duffy said of Miss Garcia, “There aren’t many people in this world like her. Most people wouldn’t even care.*’ Duffy’s still looking for his wallet.

MONTCLAIR - Montclair police have arrested two men on suspicion of kidnaping and rape in connection with the April 9 knifepoint abduction of a 17-year-old Chino girl from the Montclair Plaza. Police said that Larry James Allred, 19, of Hacienda Heights and Roy Elmer Pitchford, 19, of Anaheim wire arrested Tuesday on warrants at their jobs. The arrests of the two men concluded a month-long investigation of the kidnaping-rape of the Chino girl. In that incident the girl was forced into a car at knifepoint by two men north of the main entrance of the Montclair Plaza. The girl was then driven to the Padua Hills area of Claremont in a van truck where she was raped. She sustained minor injuries in the sexual attack. The two suspects later relased the girl, police said.

ONTARIO — Four runaways from Scottsdale, Ariz., arrested here Tuesday have only themselves to blame for their capture.

But when the gas gauge registered “empty,” they pulled off the San Bernardino Freeway near Ontario while they decided how to obtain more fuel.

The result is Dasher, an amazing new car that’s going to take them years to imitate. Dasher is both economical (about 25 miles per gallon) powerful (0-50 in 8.5 seconds). It holds five comfortably. It has front-wheel drive that gives you more control and traction than any conventional car you’ve ever driven. It has the amazing Skidbreaker. When one side of the car is riding on a slippery surface, Skidbreaker forces Dasher to move in a straight line as you brake. It’s designed for low maintenance and easy repair. And it’s covered by the VW Owner’s Security Blanket. The new Volkswagen Dasher. Throw away your old ideas about what to expect from a car. POMONA Catron Motors, Inc. 800 East Ho if Ave. © AUtHOMSS stalled truck, saw the juveniles standing there, and decided to be the Good Samaritan by calling the local highway patrol office. Officer Harvey Lane responded. He became suspicious, however, when, one told of having spent the mor- ing at Disneyland. “I found this hard to believe since Disneyland is not open Tuesday mornings at this time of year,” said Lane. Upon further interrogation, one youth said they had been in California for several weeks, a second said they arrived several days ago, while the third believed they arrived Monday night. On running a vehicle check, Lane was informed the pickup had been stolen Monday from Scottsdale. He transported the youths to the West End sheriff’s office pending their return to Arizona. Recalling an empty gas tank had led to their capture, Lane said the pickup is equipped with an auxiliary tank which held about 20 gallons of gasoline. “All they had to do was flip a lever under the seat,” he said.
