Upper Des M6ln«» Tuesday, February 21, 1956 BB Guns Proving Harmful Ask Boys To Observe Law Fenton—The little BB gun is causing a stir in Fcnton.> It seems as though a number of the Fcnton boys have them and have been using them. There is a town ordinance that forbids the firing of the guns within the city limits. One of the biggest problems, has been the headache of trying to keep bulbs in the street lights. Also, a number of Fentpn citizens have had to replace windows in their garages and other buildings. Then there are the pets around town who have no love for the guns. Some of the animals have been injured. The most serious mis-use of the guns, has been the shooting at other children. Numerous children have complainted at having been hit with the guns. True as it may be, that the boys are only shooting at the legs to see them jump, it is still most dangerous. What if there were a miss and the BB hits the eye? It could very easily happen, and once is all it would take for an eye. Parents of boys who have BB guns may not be aware such things are going on. The citizens of Fenton are asking the parents of boys who own BB guns to see that their boys observe the town ordinance, which forbids the shooting of guns within the city limits. If this is done, these other instances will take care of themselves. And it is stated that if this is not heeded, taken. drastic steps are to be Students In Conceit Mr Marlyn Bausman presented the local band students in a concert Tuesday evening, Feb. 14.

Marshal Foils Robbery Try At Ringsted Ringsted's night marshal, Jack Emick, foiled an attempted robbery of the Fink Brothers garage last week Tuesday night when he surprised two "young men" as they prepared to enter the garage building. Emick, according to Sheriff Joe Betty, was making his nightly security check when he digcover- ed the two youths at the rear end of the garage-filling station. Upon discovery the two fled frorn Emick and escaped him in the pursuit. They got into a car appar- ently being driven by a thit'd member of the group and got away. Emick found the glass on the back door of the building broken. Emick ran to get his own auto. Quickly driving back to the garage, he observed a third person in the auto. The get-away car sped east on Highway 43 with Emick's car in pursuit, but in several miles outdistanced the marshal's car. According to information from Emick the trio escaped in a 1948- model, black Ford carrying 19B6 Iowa license. One of the youth, Emick said was wearing a sheepskin coat and a brown leather cap. Emick returned to Ringsted to advise Sheriff Joe Betty of the attempt by the three, and Betty posted a northwest Iowa alert to sheriff's offices in Palo Alto and Kossuth counties, and to the highway patrol for assistance in searching for the car in Emmet and adjoining counties. The peace officers combed roads and highways In the af6a for about three hours but found no trace of the would-be bvtfg- Jars.
