Jan. 24 — A taxpayers- meeting was held in the high school auditorium (Friday evening. The sponsors are trying to reduce local taxes. The speaker was Ralph Olson, of Ledyard. The auditorium was. crowded. Jay Budlong wag elected president; Albert Nelson vice president; Alfred Oesterrelcher secretary; Elmer Peterson, treas urer. Meanwhile the other two men had alternately stood guard and searched the back room for more money. Having found no more, the trio took two full boxes of cigare, three cartons of clgarets stamped with state license -No. 829, and some candy bars. >;,Pastor Is Threatened. The Rev. Mr. Denninghoff had dropped his pocketbook behind the stove, but the bandit at the door found H and took $3J50 out of it. The men then took the pastor's watch and abused him verbally for trying to hide his pocketbook. They an attempt to threatened him- and argued among themselves, on whether he should be shot. Mr. Wallbursr said that he really thought the men might carry out their threats, for they seemed Incensed at the attempt to hide the pocketbook. One of the men then left the lunch room to start and warm up the car. A second man then went out. Before the third man left he took the receiver from the telephone, jerked the cord loose, and threw the receiver on the counter. He then ran out. and the car traveled west on No 18 at high speed. • Rat-Ing- Car Js Seen. Kermit Setchell, who entered the lunch room a few minutes later recalled, having seen the car pass at the hill a half mile west, but he said it turned south on the golf links road. ^Removal of the receiver from the telephone without a cajl alarmed the telephone operator, and she called .Mght Marshal Van Alstyne, who drove out to the station, arriving a few minutes after Setchell did.

However, the writer said, the mon- ed interests would find that In Urn*the depression would reach them. just as effectively aft It had reached the farmer. A skg Denial of Appropriation.

Mr. Nurre's talk .was followed by heavy applause from his group la. which the Farm Bureau side joined. Mr. -Nurre was followed by Peter Holt, Ottosen, who said that he and J. P.
