The Upper Des Moines-Republican, February 4, 1931 BIG DAMAGE SUIT STARTED AT SPENCER Leo J. McGruire, Post Office Clerk, Asks Damagse on a Kidnapping Charge. ACCUSED OF WEITING TO MRS. RUSH SMITH. Held in Hunters' Shack. Claims His Captors Threatened Him With Bodily Injury. Spencer is receiving more or less publicity and a damage suit for $45,000 has been started over a charge of kidnapping. A man named Leo McOulre, and employe in the post office, has filed suit for the above amount against, Rush C. Smith, prominent auto cieal- er, and Dr. R. W. Remer,. dentist. The case started over a letter which had been written to Mrs. Smith as follows: "Your husband was implicated in divorce scandal. Was found in a hotel with her by her husband last summer. It cost him nearly $2,000 to get out of it. He at present is stepping with Mrs. , East Sixth Street.—A Friend." McGulre was accused of writing the letter. On the evening of January 6, as McGuire and a friend were leaving the post office, he was accosted by Mr. Smith and Dr. Remer who stated they wished to talk with him. He was led LEO M'GUIKE. to their car. They drove to a hunting shack owned by Mr. Smith and Remer near Langdon. They entered the shackr built a fire, when McGulre asked why they wished to talk with him. He claims they showed him the letter and accused him of writing it. He denied all knowledge of the letter when Smith directed Remer to bring in the tools which were a rope and a blacksnake whip and demanded that he confess. About this time another car drove up, to .the shack and they all^ ~went- outside where they saw a 1 maw named Anderson. McGuire asked him to take him back to town, but he refused. They ordered McGuire back in the shack, but he broke away and ran across the fields to a farm home. The men followed and took him back to the shack where they threatened him with a red hot iron in an attempt to get a confession. Ater an hour or more of argument during which time Anna Peterson, an employee of Smith and an notary public, was present, they drove back to Spencer. The next morning McGuire reported the matter. Several paragraphs of handwriting were made by McGuire and sent to Chicago experts to compare with the letter. McGuire has been employed at the post office for twelve years, is thirty-five years old and unmarried. R. C. Smith is head of the Smith Motor Company at Spencer and man-led. Dr. Remer is also married and has practiced dentistry in Spencer for about fourteen years. The case is extremely sensational and much interest is being shown by friends of the principals. McGuire's Story. The following story of the case is taken from the Mason City Globe- Gazette : Spencer, January 28. —Leo J. McGuire who today filed $45,000 suit against Rush C. Smith and Dr. R. W. Remer for kidnapping him, stated that on the night of January 5, he checked off duty at the postoffice at a few minutes after eight o'clock and leaving the building by the rear door with a friend, Charles Hobbs, he was met by Smith, who told him he "wanted to talk to him." Smith and McGuire walked down an alley running alongside the postoffice a few feet and were met by Remer. Asking what they wanted McGuire was told that "they wanted to ask him something" and he was requested to get into Reiner's car. McGulre, believing that both men were friendly to him and having no cause for suspicion of what they intended, climbed into the car. It immediately started off and McGuire, who had an appoint- with Hobbs, asked that Smith and KtJSII C. SMITH. Remer stop to tell Hobbs how long they would be gone. Hobbs was told by Smith that they would be gone for about twenty minutes. Go to Hunting 1 Shack. With Remer driving the car, the three men headed north from Spencer toward Langdon and while riding McGulre stated they all talked over various things, such as hunting. They drove through Langdon east to the northeastern part of the county and about four mile east of Langdon turned off the main road and drove to a hunting shack, owned by Remer and Smith. The shack is located in a desolate spot, some distance from the highway and is not distinguishable from the road side. Arriving at the shack Smith and Remer went in, requesting McGuire to follow. At that time the three men were still talking of hunting and McGuire supposed he was going to be shown some animal or bird shot while on a hunting trip. While enroute, McGuire stated he asked Smith and Remer what they wanted and they always answered with, "we want to show you something." After entering the shack, Smith and Remer built fires in the cook stove and heating stove. McGuire asked why they needed two fires and he stated they answered, "It's chilly." Liquor is Consumed. Smith, according to McGuire, then produced a bottle of gin from which several drinks were taken and again McGulre asked what it was they wanted. Smith threw off his coat and McGuire saw that underneath it he had a gun and cartridge belt strapped around his waist. McGuire stated that he again asked what they wanted, and Smith produced an anonymous letter which he accused McGulre of writing to Mrs. Smith. The letter was: "Your husband was Implicated T in -divorce scandle. Was found in a hotel with her by her husband last summer. It cost him nearly $2,000 to get out of it. He is at present stepping with Mrs. . , East Sixth street. A Friend." McGuire denied knowledge of the letter and suggested that his handwriting be submitted to an expert for comparison. v When McGuire persistently claimed that he knew nothing of the letter he stated Smith directed Remer to "get the tools." Remer went out of the cabin and returned with a large rope in which there was tied a noose and a blacksnake whip and these instruments were dangled in front of McGuire, he being told, he claimed, that they "knew" he had written the letter and he might just as well "confess." . Would "Clean Up Town." Remer is alleged to have made the remark that: "Of course this doesn't concern me this time, but it concerns my best friend, and by God I'm going to help him out. Rush and I are going to clean up this town of Spencer." Shortly afterwards, McGuire stated a car drove up to the shack and that Smith and Reiner went out to meet it. McGuire followed and found that the driver was Gus Anderson, an employee of the Rush C. Smith Motor company. McGuire stated he recognized Anderson and said, "I'm going to have some trouble here and want you to help me back to town." Anderson, he stated, refused to give aid. There was also a woman in the car, according In a Year Like This Hearts Are Trumps and especially Kt. Valentine's Day, February 14th.

Smith then ordered McGuire back into the shack and when McGulre refused to go, Smith and Remer caught, him by the arms and attempted to force him back. Smith, McGuire said, had the whip In his hand with the heavy end up and was cracking it over his head. Smith went into the shack for something, McGuire stated he- didn't know what for, and while he was gone, McGuire broke away from Remer, jumped into the car, immediately jumped out again and started a mad rush acros sthe fields to where he saw a lighted window. He ran over B plowed field with, he said. Smith and Remer after him. He jumped a barbed wire fence, ran through a slough and after climbing several fences arrived at the farm home of Frank Zakrwiskie about a mile distant. McGuire fell against the door and Zakr- wiskie came and opened it. McGuire asked to use a telephone to call the sheriff but the farmer stated he had no phone and Just then Smith appeared around the corner of the house. Smith, McGulre says, stated that he was a deputy sheriff. Zakrwiskie ask- eci to see his badge, but Smith claimed he didn't have it with him. Zakr- wiskie apparently not liking the looks of the incident decided to go along with Smith and McGulre and all three climbed into the farmer's car and drove off only to be met by Remer in his car. Suffered Nervous Chill. Smith, recognizing Reiner's car, asked the farmer to stop and Smith and Remer pulled McGuire into Remer's car. McGuire stated, nnd on the way back to the shack, McGuire stated that he heard Remer say he "got winded", meaning that he couldn't continue the chase. At this time McGulre stated, he became nauseated by a nervous chill and vomited continuously. Reaching the shack again, McGuire said he was placed in a bunk nnd left to rest for about ten minutes. Anderson and the woman were still at the shack, Smith stating that she was Ann Peterson, also his employee, who evidently had been brought to the shack for the purpose of taking down a statement to the effect that McGuire did write the letter to Mrs. Smith and that Its contents were untrue. McGuire stated that when he refused to sign any statements, Smith took a heated iron bar from the stove and place it near his head, threatening to use it if McGuire didn't sign. McGuire said he told Smith, "Put it down if you want to, 111 not sign that statement." He also says that the red hot poker was so near his head he could feel the heat burning his scalp and the .side of his face. . Had Long Argument. After a long argument lasting for an hour or more, Smith, McGuire, Remer and Ann Peterson all returned to Spencer. : On ,the trip in McGulre stated Smith warned him if "You repeat what has been done this evening, I'll get you." When asked if he intended to repeat what had been done McGuire stated he told them he intended to tell the postmaster, E. R. Bender. He also said Remer then stated: "Better stop and finish the job." They did not stop, however, and arrived back in Spencer about eleven o'clock. McGuire told Mr. Bender of what had transpired and Mr. Smith was called over to the,, ppstpfi ice: where •McGuire wrote paragraph 'after parti- ; graph to send to an expert to compare. McGuire was still so ill the following day that he was placed under a physician's care and remained in bed for several days. Rumors of the affair seeped out, despite the attempt to keep it quiet and within about a week the entire county was aroused over the situation. When the grand jury convenes in March, it is expected that the most sensational disclosures will be made public. Is Trusted Employee. McGuire is thirty-five years of age and was reared in this community. He has been a trusted employee of the post office for more than twelve years. He is not man-led and makes his home with his parents. Rush C. Smith is thirty-five years of age and is head of a motor sales company here. He returned to his home town about one year ago after spending some time in Chicago, where he is alleged to have killed a man, in self-defense during a Chicago holdup. Stories of this affair were printed in nearly every paper in Iowa. Smith denied that he harmed McGuire, and said that there was no violence used. His wife is a member of the Tuttle family of this city, pioneers and wealthy real estate holders. Remer came to Spencer about fourteen years ago, purchasing a dental practice. He is married and has one daughter. He refused to comment on the case, stating that "It isn't my case." The original notice of trial was filed and immediately withdrawn from the court and Prank Zahrwiskie has been ordered to appear as a witness. ISPORTSMEN MET AT ARMSTRONG Would Endeavor to Have Iowa Lake Stocked with Game Fish. Head of Business School Visits Algona. J. R. Brandrup, the owner and manager of the Mankato Commercial College, was a pleasant caller at the Upper Des Molnes-Bepubllcan office on Thursday afternoon. Mr. Brandrup was accompanied by Loretta Howie, an Algona young lady, who is taking a course at the Mankato school, who was able to enjoy a few hours' visit at home while Mr. Brandrup attended to .his affairs here. Mr. Brandrup is apparently a thorough and successful business man himself. He established his business college forty years ago and now owns his fine brick building of four floors on the main street, the property being perhaps worth $100,000. The present building was built in 1916 before the cost of building had advanced and cost over $75,000 at that time. During the boom years this business college had as high as 1,500 pupils, and at present there are over 800 students. The Mankato Commercial College is rated one of the best end least expensive of schools of that character in this part of the country, and many Algona young folks have gained a business education there. Small Fire at the W. C. Dewel Home. The fire department was called out Monday afternoon to quell a small roof fire on the W. O. Dewel residence. The fire presumably started from a spark from the chimney. The fire was extinguished before it had time to burn more than a small hole in the roof. RINGSTED MAN GAVE DEPTH OF LAKES. Also Suggest Sowing of Wild Illcc for Duck Feed. Minnesota to Cooperate. Swea City Herald: Sportsmen of this region are meeting in the high school auditorium at Armstrong this Thursday night to consider the question of restocking Iowa lake with fish and to sow wild rice for feed for ducks. Cooperation of both the Iowa and Minnesota fish and game departments will be sought as the lake lies on both sides of the state line, the greater portion being in Minnesota. Nestling modestly inside a fringe of timber this lake gets but a glance from thousands of autolsts who pass it every year, yet a considerable group on the other hand has come to learn of its charm. When the editor of this paper, his daughter and a niece spent a day at Iowa lake last summer there were at least a hundred persons along its shores, fishing or idly saunterine; through the timber, comprising one of the best collections of native trees in this region. Joe Peterson of Ringsted, one of the sportsmen who is taking a leading part in the present movement, finds Iowa lake ranks sixth In point of depth of the twenty best lakes in Iowa. The following table shows the depth in the deepest places of the twenty leading lakes of this state: Okoboji lake 127 Spirit lake 26 Clear Lake 20 Lost Island lake 16 Little Spirit lake 12 Iowa lake 9.6 Storm lake 8 North Twin lake 8 Swan lake (Emmet county) — 8 Hottes lake ' 7.9 Mud lake (Emmet county 7.6 Silver lake (near Lake Park) — 7.5 Crystal lake 7.5 Silver lake (near Ayrshire) 7.5 Marble lake 6.9 Tuttle lake 6.6 High lake (Emmet county) 6.5 Medium lake (Emmetsburg) 6 Trumbull lake 5.2 South Twin lake 5 January Mildest in Seventy-Five Years. To the Editor U. D. M.-R.:— During the seventy-five years that I have lived in Iowa, this has been the mildest January that I have ever seen. It has had a higher temperature more sunshine, less cloudiness and storm than any January in seventy- five years. I think!, perhaps ;there was no more snow in the winter of ,1895.than there has,been this winter, *tjtrfc--ifc" j wtw-BoMw»»-fnore cloudy and far from being as pleasant. The one thing in common between the two winters is that they each followed a very hot dry summer. In 1894 from the 25th of June until the 15th of August there was not enough rain to make a good heavy dew, and much of the time there was no dew in the morning. I finished my cultivation of corn, did my haying, harvesting, stacking and threshing without a drop of rain to stop work. I very well remember the afternoon of the 26th of July. It was the only half day that I ever laid off farm work on acount of the heat. The thermometer stood at 10G nearly all afternoon with a hot wind blowing from the southwest. The crops of 1895 were the best in quality and in yield per acre, I think, that kossuth county has ever had. I wonder if the hot dry summer of 1930 and the mild winter of 1931 will be followed by a corresponding good crop.—C. B. Hutchins. Prize for Oldest Piece of Furniture. Have you a mohair-covered chair or sofa in your home?. If so, you may be two hundred and fifty dollars the richer for it. The Upper Des Moins- Republican is in receipt of a message from the Household Science Institute, Chicago, asking for help in locating the oldest piece of mohair-upholstered furniture in the United States. The institute feels that there is a possibility of its being found in this section. The stylo of the sought for furniture or its use or non-use at the present time are not important, providing it is in good condition. The owner of the piece selected will be awarded two hnudred and fifty dollars and the piece itself will be exhibited Avith othor old- time furniture during the World's Fair at Chicago in 1933. Back of the institute's offer is the desire on the part of Grace Viall Gray, its director to acertaln the longevity of mohair. Although innumerable pieces of mohair-covered furniture and mohair rugs have seen many years of hard daily service, it is claimed that unless deliberately injured no instance has yet been found of a mohair fabric ever wearing through. Algonians who feel that they have something of interest should communicate with Mrs. Grace Viall Gray, Household Science Institute, 7 S. Dearborn St., Chicago, Illinois, giving the history of the piece they have in mind and all facts concerning age, color, condition and other pertinent information. Mrs. Gray will then decide whether the article is the one wanted and make aramgements for ship- pine it to Chicago. Ledyard High School Newspaper. The students of the Ledyard consolidated school publish bi-weekly a little school journal called "The Putu- wiz". It is a newsy little paper and besides giving all the' school news and activities, give considerable town news, carries ads for the local merchants and is an interesting paper. The Ledyard schools are prospering under Superintendent Lauritzen and his assistants and with their fine and modern school building and conveniences, they rank with the best in the state. Algona Won Two Basket Ball Games. The Algona high school Bulldogs won two basket ball games Friday and Saturday of last week when they de- fentrd Eagle Grove by the score of 26 to 14 and Emmetsburg 29 to 22. The crowds at both games were fair. The game with Eagle Grove was fought with the customary fierceness and roughness which has characterized athletic contests between the two schools since time immemorinm. Al- ponn had pood team work find brought the ball down the floor fast. Their basket eve was better than it has been for some time. Hnrgrcnvcs. Aigonn forward, made eleven of the local's points and was high man in the game.. Eagle Grove \vns fast but, evidently left their basket eye at home. They played a man to man defense and sometimes looked as if they did not know the difference between legal and illegal guarding. The combination of Cowan and Williams at forward. Moore at center and Hargreoves and Ban- at guard clicked better than any combination has for some time. Samp, Black and Parsons subbed. Ellis of Humboldt refereed. In the game with Emmetsburg on Saturday night It was the first athletic contest between the two schools since the breaking off of relations in 1925 over the football game between the two schools. Algona won the state championship that year. The local team work was good but Lady Luck deserted the boys when it came to shooting baskets. Time after time the ball would roll around the hoop and then pop out. In the first half they had enough shots to win any ball game, but hardly any of them went through the hoop. The locals missed 12 out of 19 free throws. The visitors used three types of dcCense, but could not cope with Algona's offense. Algona made about ten points In the last quarter for a safe lead and then stalled. The visitors had hard luck with their shots. An epidemic of small pox among the Emmctsburg visitors recently played havoc with their team but they played a good brand of basket ball and the locals are look- Ing forward to a tough game with them on the Emmetsburg floor next Saturday night. The lineup for Algona was, Cowan and Williams, guards; Moore, center, and Hargreaves and Barr, forwards. Samp and Parsons subbed. Agaard of LuVerne refereed. Philosophers of Swea City Discuss Problems, Herald: Dr. Whitlow and this column were discussing hard times up in Heramn Bowman's barber shop the other morning. It was agreed that the rich have too much money while the poor do not have enough. Some means should be devised whereby the rich have a little less and the poor a little more. To illustrate "doc", reminded us the time the rooster and the elephant entered the ark together. Looking up at the elephant the rooster said: "Big boy, let's not you and me step on one another."
