THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1963 Alert For Monmouth Firebug SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)-A nationwide alert has been put out for a man wanted (or questioning in an Investigation into three Ilres believed set by a mad arsonist in Monmouth Oct. 14. John Newtoold, head of the state police crime section, said today authorities know the man has left the Monmouth area Nowbold said state police in vestlgators have sifted through stacks of information in probing the case and liave cleared about 25 or 30 men through questioning or indirect checking. "We're primarily interested in this one man," Nowbold said. Three fires destroyed two lumber yards and a half of a block-long factory building with losses estimated at up to $400,000. The fires followed telephone threats that they would be touched off. Authorities said they believed the fires were set by the same person who made a threatening telephone call to the Western Stonewear Co. on Sept. 9, shortly before a fire erupted on the roof of the plant. The blaze caused several thousand dollars in damage. Following the Oct. 11 fires, a telephone call was received by Mrs. Allan Walters, wife of Monmouth's mayor. She said the caller warned that four more fires would be set if the pottery continued operations the following day. Some 60 state troopers moved into the city to aid local police and the sheriff's office in maintaining a watch against new fires. The caller failed to make good his threat. THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT.
