Shumway, rlPSheriff Li,E,-Hovejr, state Agent Ray , v Scott drove to 'St. Paul last week on Wednesday to attend the extradition ''"hearing Hat-?the LuVerne bank robber, Lawrence Degan. The hearing waa held Thursday afternoon in the executive offices of Governor Theodore Christiansen of Minnesota. Identify Degan. Degan was brought over from Minneapolis to St. Paul and was represented at the hearing by Attorneys Watson & Johnson of Minneapolis and Fred Ossana of St. Paul. These lawyers sought to prevent extradition by trying to break down the evidence of the Iowa officers by cross examination! No evidence which might, have helped their case was introduced by them, but Instead they tried to mix-up too details of the which Shumway objected to on the grounds that, the governor's office was not place to hold court. W. ; Scott Hanna and his sister, Consuelo, of toe LuVerne bank accom- ' panied the officers to the hearing "and •identified Degan as the robber. The opposing lawyers tried to .shake Miss Hanna's testimony but she stood firm --, and would not give them any satlsfac- x tion was positive and helped much toward influencing the governor. If.'"'-.

Held for Forgery. Before the hearing hi the governor's office Mr. Shumway and Sheriff Hovey called on the county attorney in St. Paul to find out his attitude on the forgery count on which Degan was being held to answer in Minneapolis, Degan had been arrested there for forging American Express checks and the county attorney, Olson, by name, stated that it was all right with him to have Degan tried in Iowa for bank robbery as he could get life on that charge whereas he could only get eight years on the forgery count, An Organized Gang. Two of Degani-ajjtorneys were in Lu- Verne and vicinity for two weeks oH and on before the hearing, but evl- "dently kept' their business to themselves as none of the local officers.could flnd out what they were doing there: It Is thought that there-is an organized gang'in the Twin Cities which is robbing the banks in the surrounding territory as two banks were robber] 'within a radius of seventy miles of the cities over, the week end. The authorities* were disappointed in not being able ,to bring Degan here but if he is convicted in Mankato, the result will be the same. ' \ Young Girl Struck by Car Sunday.

Frazier, He was called to this pastorate from .over one hundred applicants by a unanimous vote which was a wonderful compliment to his ability. He expects to be able to enter his duties about the middle of October. While he was considering the Pond du Lac church, he was asked to deliver a sermon at Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city of 190,000. This church has been served by Dr. John A.
