But takes only 70 cents and some jewelry A brazen man between 35 and 40 years old terrorized an Algona housewife Wednesday in her upstairs apartment just two blocks from the police station but took only 70 cents, a bracelet and a pair of earrings before escaping from the apartment. Mrs. James Wolfe, 17, reported in to the Algona Police about 2:05 p.m. that afternoon that a man entered her apartment, rifled closets, clothes and dressers and then escaped while she was hurriedly dressing her 3-month old baby before leaving. Algona police rushed to the scene but found no sign of the man. It is theorized he had a car parked around the corner from the apartment at 329M> North Thormgton street, just 1% blocks north and one-half block east of the Algona police station. MRS. WOLFE, a native of Emmetsburg and wife of an Universal Mfg. Co. employee, told this story to Advance reporter Ernia Lea Deim:- '••_ : She said she .heard someone coming up the stairs to the apartment shortly after noon Wednesday. She went to the head of the stairs and met a man coming up. She described him in her report to police as between 5'9" and 5'10", from 35 to 40 years old, wearing a gray suit and light hat. She said he looked like a salesman. Mrs. Wolfe asked him what he wanted and he replied, "I'll get what I want." She pushed him and he caught himself on the bannister, she reported, and ihoved her against the wall. He went into the bathroom of the apartment where he went through the cupboards. Mrs. Wolfe again asked him what he was looking for and he told her to "leave me alone — I'll find what I want." In the kitchen he opened drawers and cupboards. In the bedroom, after going through drawers and pockets of clothes in the closet, he took 70c from her purse which was on the dressing table alongside the jewelry box. From the latter, he took a bracelet which had a pearl in it and a pair of earrings with cultured pearls. DURING THIS time, Mrs. Wolfe, fearing for the safety of her baby, was in the nursery getting it dressed to leave. The man did not come into the nursery, she said, but in the adjoining living room, he threw the coats from the closet and knocked over the coffee table. The intruder left sometime while she was in the nursery. Mrs. Wolfe said she is certain there was no car in front of the house, which has an upstairs and downstairs apartment in it (The Harry Alts live downstairs). She carried her baby to the Alt apartment but it was locked and she was unable to use their telephone. The Wolfes do not have a telephone. She then ran to the apartment house north on the corner but no one answered the door there so she proceeded on across the street to the Wendell Jergenson home where Mrs. Jergenson called police. MRS. WOLFE returned to the house with the police while they searched the basement and looked for tracks in the snow. The Wolfes have no household insurance so there is little chance of being reimbursed for the jewelry loss. She and the baby stayed the rest of the afternoon with Mrs. Jergenson. Ann Clark, who lives in the New well for Burt to cost over $10,000 Burt — The Burt Town Council Wednesday night approved digging a new municipal water well costing "in excess of $10,000." Work is expected to begin on the new well soon after approval of the site is given by the State Department of Health. Approval is expected within two or three days, according to Town Clerk G. H. McMullen. . The work, which will be done by Thorpe Well Co. of Des Moines, will be completed within 30 days. : Last November, an inspection of the water supply by a state apartment just north, reported she was visiting with a neighbor about the time of the break-in and the dog "Rex", the Algona high school bulldog which is being cared for by Mrs. Clark, began tugging at the leash and barking continuously. She said the dog is normally mild-mannered. However, she said she did not see. anyone when she looked out later. . Mr,; Wolfe is a native of West Ben,d; Rites Saturday for Fenton town marshal Fenton — Funeral services for Albert Raymond Schwarzenbach, 59 of Fenton, were held Saturday afternoon at the St. John's Lutheran church at Fenton.
