Such was the case with Jim O'Neill, cashier of the First Trust & Savings Bank of Armstrong, which also has a branch in Fenton, where Jim and his father Bank President J. L. O'Neill, are well known. As a result, state and federa. officers think they have solved n theft of $50,000 in bonds from the Manly, Iowa, postoffice, last December. William D. Gregory, ;il Manly, is in jail at Mason City 'acing a federal charge. How It All Started Last April, about four months nfter the robbery, young O'Neill waited on a man who opened a checking and savings account at Armstrong, under the name of 0. ... Garnass. Almost immediately hereafter, he withdrew part of the money. A few days later he went into the bank and cashed two $1,000 savings bonds, Series E. O'Neill experienced that silent alarm from within, although as he said, "everything seemed plausible." But he followed the man outside and wrote down his car license number without being observed, and took a description of the car. These he put into his wallet for future reference. Traced Car License A week ago last Friday the bank was notified by Federal officials that the two bonds had been reported lost or stolen. O'Neill promptly went to local officers and called the Federal officers. Traced through the car license, Gregory was picked up shortly thereafter. Officers found n Series E bonds in the trunk of his car. Other bonds, hud been cashed In Illinois and I Indiana, officers said. Between the time that Jim O'Neill jotted down the license number, and the time the bonds were reported as having been stolen, he lost his wallet contain- ng the information on car and icense in a movie theatre. But several days before Federal of icers arrived, the wallet was re urned intact, with the information safe inside. C.R.O.P. Names New Officers Rev.

STAPLING MACHINES and staples. Popular models. Upper Des Moines Pub. Co., DANCE TO FEZZ FRITSCHE BANCROFT FRIDAY SEPT. 21st RECENTLY. DURINCi ONE of my frequent flights of fancy, 1 wished that I was rich instead of so blamed good looking. I was talking out loud, and I thought it was only to myself. However, our son Bill overheard me and after tooting a little rudely at the idea of his mother being either good looking or rich, said he knew the answer to all my problems. "All you have to do. Mom, is write a good, sexy novel and you'll really have it made! * * * WELL. I'VE NEVER TIMED writing a novel, sexy or not, or fiction of any kind for that matter, but perhaps Bill is right about this. After all. he's had a whole year at the University where, I understand, they learn about all kinds of things, and as an almost sophomore his opinions should be pretty valuable to me. Then, too. the editor of this newspaper lold me long ago that there are three things which will always interest people. The first of these is sex. I have forgotten what he other two are! * * * THE FIH.ST PROBLEM WHITING a sexy novel is getting a title or it. You have to choose somelhing that will imply the fact that the novel is spicey without giving too much of the plot away. And it has o be .timely. "I Was His Little Cinnamon Bun From Outer Space" would probably fill both the spicey and timely requirements all right, but it wouldn't fit very well on a theater marquee when I eventually sell my story to the movies. * * * "FROM HERE TO MATERNITY" is a sexy title, but it leans a little too much toward the domestic consequences of sex and I want this novel to be really fiction. Besides, Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner have already appeared in a story with quite a similar title. I hava about decided on "September Morn". * * * "SEPTEMBER MORN", is a timely title, you will agree, because, although for the life of me I can't figure out where June, July and August went, it is September. And sexy? Well, all of us remember the calendar picture by the same title where that pretty girl is clown by the creek taking a drink with only a very flimsy nightie on. I've always wondered how she kept from catching her death of dampness running around like that on a cool fall morning, but I will admit she does look sexy. * * « NOW THAT I HAVE THE TITLE, I'll have to get to work on the plot. Any article on writing I've ever read advises the aspiring author to write about subjects you know and to do thorough research on them. I shall be a little handicapped for Father, like most husbands, frowns upon my doing any outside research on sexy subjects. * * * A GOOD NOVEL HAS TO HAVE plenty of action. I shall have plently of first-hand experience to draw on, for there is so much action around our house any September morning that it usually has me trembling over a third cup of coffee by 9:30. But for a novel, the action, is also supposed to be believable, and the things that go on around here no discerning reader could possibly believe! Unless, of course, she had a family of her own. * * * TAKE THE SEPTEMBER MORN of the fifth, for example W« / Ch"»t/ W ' a ^ p£ !, b -5' m° ioud f arkln 8 of °ur faithful watchdog, Gidgit. She seemed to be telling us that armed robbers were seeking entrance) to steal our silver - all 42 pieces of our wedding present plate. Investigation proved it was only a continuance of Gidgft's feud with the paper boy, but as long as I was up anyway, I decided to start the day with a smile. J * * * IMMEDIATELY, THE OPPORTUNITY for adventure presented itself. Could I steal out, like the girl in September Morn, into the dew of dawn in my nightclothes? In my case, they were flannel pajamas covered by a bathrobe, but adventure is, where you find it these days and I had to bring in the underwear I'd washed the night before from the clothesline. * * • ERE LONG. THE PLACE was filled with lovely, half-clad maidens They danced around gracefully and let down their wavey hair They were rea ly our teen-agers, Mary Ann and Jean, in their shorty pajamas, and they were taking their hair out of giant rollers and squabbling over who was using whose comb. Dramatic situations arose. "Mother I ironed the wrong blouse. Could you possibly do this one for me?' 'fight, Team, Fight!", with appropriate gestures. Jeanie was trying out for cheerleader that day and she was scared to death * « * THE PHONE RINGS AND THERE'S a five minute conference with Kendra over what is to be worn today. The young male of the household makes an entrance and moans a bit about his long-lost mate _ to his dark grey socks. He gulps a pint of ice cream for breakfast hurriedly reads Pogo and Fletcher Knebel and is off to work. The 'phone rings. Somebody wants father to clean a sewer. I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH more dramatic we can get around nere, but it still probably wouldn't be enough for a real best-scllinc sexy novel. Anyway, I have a sneaking suspicion that the people who write most about sex, and also the people who talk about it all the time, are the very people who know least about it from actual experience. (That s why I talk mostly about recipes in this column) • • * SEPTEMBER MORNINGS are really cold for Art Wiese, Algona electrician who is again working at Thule, Greenland. He writes "It reezes a little at nights now and the ground freezes down from the op and up from the bottom. We are putting in long hours every day to get our ground work finished before it gets too cold. We have 33 000 feet of orangeburg (conduit made out of tar paper) to get in before it freezes and we have quite a race on our hands. It was daylight all the time when I arrived here Aug. 13, but the sun gets behind the mountain in the evenings, so I guess summer is about gone." THIS \VEEK"S RECIPE FOR Yellow Lemon Cake doesn't sound like much at first glance, but wait until you taste it 1 I did Thursday and it is luscious.
