Schenck left Sunday for Chicago to spend a few- days with Mr. Schenck's sister, Lois. A. A. Hnnna accompanied them to Chicago and from there was to go to Detroit to get a new- car. which he would drive to his home at Wolf Point, Mont. Spencer News-Herald: A ten- year term in the penitentiary at Fort Madison was meted out Saturday by Judge George A. Heald to Chester Johnson, a former convict charged with the forgery of a number of worthless checks in Clay county last December. Johnson, arrested in Mason City, early in February, has been held in solitary confinement in the county jail. He will be taken to Fort Madison by Sheriff Fred Erickson this week. He is a brother of Ernest Johnson of Royal, whose car he is said to have stolen last December and later abandoned at Mason City. He left Spencer with the car shortly after issuing 13 checks, each for $10 and drawn on the Home State bank at Royal under the name of Ralph Brusie, his step-father. His criminal record dates back to June, 1927, when he was arrested in Algona on a charge of forgery. Since that time he has been confined in the reformatory at Anamosa, tHe penitentiary at Fort Madison, and the state hospital at Cherokee. I In 1929 he was sent to Anamosa for one year, later pleading guilty Bay McXVhortersSlove The Ray McWhorters moved last week to the farm house across the road, which they have had remodeled and modernized.

Shortly after his release from that prison he was sent to Cherokee after being found guilty of the transportation of intoxicating liquor. In 1931 he was sent to Fort Madison for one year for operating a motor vehicle withgut the consent of Its owner. There Is a possibility that Johnson is now wanted in Pennsylvania on a charge of assault with Intent to kill. While employed several months ago by the Service Drive- Away company in Detroit, Johnson is said to have participated In the robbery of the foreman of a convoy of new cars enroute to Virginia from Detroit. It is claimed that Johnson knocked the foreman on the head with a beer bottle while the two were riding In a truck. The two tumbled to the pavement where Johnson was helped by a companion who drove up in a car. The driver was finally knocked unconscious and the two men robbed him of $40, stole a new car from the convoy and returned to the middle-west It was this new machine which caused Johnson's arrest in Mason City.
