His condition is listed as satisfactory. bank robbery which occurred on July 26, 1960, in Phoenix, Arizona. He has also been arrested numerous times for bank robbery, auto larceny, and confidence schemes. Paddock has been diagnosed as being psychopathic and egotistical, as well as arrogant, and reportedly has suicidal tendencies. Paddock has additionally been indicted for two other bank robberies in Phoenix which took place iii 1959 and 1960; however, he was not tried on these robberies due to the other bank robbery conviction. During his arrest in Las Vegas, Nevada, Paddock attempted to run down an FBI Agent with his car. During a previous arrest he was found to have a cleverly concealed revolver on him. Paddock’s previous convictions include ten counts of auto larceny, five counts of “confidence game”, and a conviction for conspiracy in connection with a bad check operation. Paddock is described as a white American, bom in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, on November 1, 1926. Paddock presents a striking appearance, being 6’4” and weighing 245 pounds.

Ave. E (Hwy 90A) (9-ltc) The past week has been very interesting in the history of the United States. Regardless of party affiliation, every red blooded American should be proud of our leader, Richard M. Nixon and his wife, Pat, for daring to go among people who are not listed as allies. As that big airplane landed in Peking I secretly prayed for the safe return of the President and his wife. And I know that I was not the only American who did the same thing. Many persons remarked that he was safe, as safe as could be. That no harm could come to them. Yet. just getting in a car can be fatal— and the distance doesn’t have to be 10,000 miles. Just think how far he went to try to create friendship. Yet, many people who live right in our midst wouldn’t take time to try and win the friendship of a newcomer to town, wouldn’t try to get along with persons in their midst, because maybe they weren’t the same nationality, the same church affiliation, in the same financial bracket or social standing—. I had a call to come out to Muhlstein Store for some articles for the Garden Club rummage sale. I took Christine Zemanek, 76, with me. When we arrived at the store, which is located 12 miles out on the Schulenburg Highway, I discovered that Anita and Johnny Muhlstein are the same people who come to the local convalescent homes and visit the residents. Johnny brings his piano accordion and plays for them, bringing much enjoyment. They have built a new metallic building next to their store. Johnny has a TV and radio repair shop in part of it and Anita has part to display her antiques. The building is nice and a large wood heater is part of the heating system. Anita hunted up so many nice things for the Renger Memorial Hospital Fund rummage sale the Garden Club is sponsoring. While at the store Ewald Blaschke of near Schulenburg came in and we had a refreshment together. Mr. Blaschke knew my husband, Bob, through bowling in Schulenburg. This brings me back to friendship. Coming home Christine and I had to discuss the beauty of the day. She remarked that there isn’t a day that she doesn’t pray for “America.” Then we started discussing her life. She told me that she came over from Czechoslovakia in 1910. She was 14 years of age. “I worked in Galveston at a bakery, I worked as a maid in many homes in many places. This included Cameron, Shiner, to mention a few.” I asked her how old she was v/hen she received her citizenship —“I was about 50 years of age. and I never cease to thank God and my friends who helped me to obtain this.” Christine is a wonderful person. She lives every day like it was her last. She worries very little, taking things as they come. I do believe she can work rings around many younger people. Hanging clothes, ironing, doing just the ordinary things of life, give her a great feeling of satisfaction. Prayer is one of the most important things in her life. She remarked to me so many times in the past week that she was praying so hard so that the President and his wife and the group that went to Peking would come back safely. What are the prayers of one little old lady? Multiply the prayers of many many “one little old ladies” and somehow I feel they helped to safely bring back our leader. • MOLLYNOTES — Mrs. Louis Cuttin, the former Tillie Strauss of S e g u i n celebrated another birthday Sunday February 20.
