Really wise bank robbers don't hesitate at crucial moments, so Ounnar Jacobson of St. Paul, the plain-dressed youth who gambled his life for less than $2,000 to an attempted robbery of the Farmers State Bank of Hamel, Minnesota, Friday afternoon takes ranking with the other pseudo hard boys who succumb early in their criminal careers.
