. Editor of the Mall Box:
During the past few months quite a number of Mail Box
a i tides have rjeen mailed or delivered to youi office but it is
; noted that only a few have been printed. We are of the opinion
that you have icone "chicken."
Your paper fails to realize the importance of public opinion,
the number of readers interested in the Mall Box, and the cor-
et-oru that tesult from "nasty" articles In that column. You
puonsh lengthy articles In society, Juvenile activities and love
affairs In the high schools, elaborate wrlteups on schizophrenic
; and their social clubs and activities but you publish nothing on
public opinion.
We presume that your narrowmlndedness and that of your
, typesetters has resulted in many a good article ending up In
the waste basket. Remember, we are not buying your paper for
; the opinions ol yourself and staff, but for the opinions of many
it is also noted that the few articles published are all
a a in.st the Panama Canal Company.
Articles against any military organiaztion, against any Re-
puriic oi Panama city, citizen, or organization, or against any
orhei race, Just don't get published.
Ae suspicion your typesetters may be destroying articles
their narrow minds don't like.
When your paper arrives the first two questions are: what
is me heaaline ana what does the Mall Box say.
Many a lltt.e big shot has been straightened out by a Mail
Box article reducing his height.
Wny not allot two full columns each day to the Mail Box,
printing any and all articles received without deletions, short
ox lioel, and watch the public reaction. We will then see Mall
Cox anieles mysteriously appearing on office and snop bulletin
boa i os.

on the "quite a number" of Mall box articles that have
Dot been printed because we have no knowledge of what

A more sensible view seems to be that two
tests must first be applied, before It will be
clear whether or not Taft is out ot the run-
Tne first test Is obviously tne Wisconsin pri-
mary April 1. Even the Taft men agree that
Taft has every possible advantage In Wisconsin
notably including the fact that Elsenhower is
not entered there and that Taft must win
hands down In Wisconsin If he is to win at all.
Taft's Wisconsin manager, Tom Coleman, has
predicted that Taft will take all thirty delegates.
He might drop two or three to a second string
candidate, Harold E. Stassen or Governor Earl
Warren of California, and still survive.
But if Taft loses more than a handful of de-
legates, he almost automatically becomes a sec*
oi'd string candidate himself.
The second that is in many ways more deci-
sive. Taft's basic strength has always rested
with the regular organizations if the non-pri-
mary states, notably In the South, where dele-
gates can be delivered more or less at will by
a few professionals.
By and large, the professionals have been for
Taft, in part simply because they sympathize
with his views. But especially among Southern
Republicans, ideas are far less important than
being for the winner.
A rush of the professionals to Elsenhower, as

The Incident involving the white American teacher of the
Occupational High School wiih a colored student in which the
former spoke obscene language to the latter, is another Incident
which should make the governor look into the Canal Zone school
Sometime ago one of these white teachers wrote an offensive
letter to a university in the States about West Indians; then a
principal "marched" a newspaperman off the school building:
thn an athletic supervisor used his foot on a little child; now
comes a shop instructor using filthy language (There Is proof
that this was not the first time that such language was used to

claims sound believable.
If Taft does poorly In Wisconsin, the trickle
will tend to become a flood.
Then only Gen. MacArthur might stem the

Drew Pearson says: Politics dominated debate on Eisen-

WASHINGTONPolitics wasn't mentioned during the baek-

Except with a handful of senators, the real questionth*

""Truman's plan to bring Ike home, therefore dovetailed
right Into the plans of Senators Lodge and Duff and Gover-
nor Dewey. Until New Hampshire, thev were strong for it.
But suddenly, after Ike's victory in New Hampshire, they
had a change of heart. _,.. ___,._
Suddenly they figured their man could win without comlrig
back to the U.S.A. .. ._
Suddenly also they decided that the risk of having Ike testi-
fy on the controversial question of foreign aid was such that
he should remain In Paris.
That was why Senator Lodge, the Eisenhower campaign man-
ager, voted by proxy in the Foreign Relations corhtnlttee to keep
Ike in Paris; also why Smith of New Jersey, an Elsenhower Re-
publican, did likewise.
No matter what you think of Harry Truman, however, in
this case Involving the all-important question of foreign policy,
he played the game straight. Truman's main idea la Co get
foreign aid passed. .
Having already invited Eisenhower to come home and tes-
tify, he assumed this would be done. So also did the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, who, until last week end, were making plans
for Ike's arrival. ,. ,.
However, some White House advisers thought it would be
more diplomatic to have the two congressional committee* which
must pass on foreign aid extend the official Invitation to Bien-
hower rather than have the President "order" him back.
So Senator McMahon of Connecticut, one of the ablest ad-
ministration leaders In the Senate, picked up the ball and de-
manded that the Senate Foreign Relations committee, of which
he Is a member, extend the Invitation.
When the vote came up in a closed-door session, how-
ever, politics obviously dominated the debate.
Senator George of Georgia led the drive to block Ike'a re-
turn, probably because George first, Is strongly in favor of
cutting the mutual security funds; also, though a, Democrat,
friends say that he leans toward Taft for President.
Though George cooperates with his Georgia colleague, Sen-
ator Russell, there never has been too much love lost between
Significantly, both group of Republicans were against hav-
ing Ike return. lk..
The pro-Taft Republicans feared Ike might make politi-
cal hay 6y winning over the Congressional committee; while
the pro-Eisenhower Republicans figured there was no use tak-
ing the chance of hiving their man get mixed up In the foreign
aid controversy.
Senator McMahon opened the closed-door debate by urging
that It was Elsenhower's duty to Inform the Senate how much
money It should vote for the security of Europe.
"There's no politics being played here, at least on my part,',
declared McMahon. "I realize that General Elsenhower's prom-
inence In the Republican Party has Increased since his victory
in New Hampshire.
"But before the New Hampshire results were known I sugges-
ted to this committee that Elsenhower be invited here.
"I timed my proposal to avoid the intrusion of politics. W*

I'm against this proposal in any form," snapped Senator
George. He continued with a lengthy argument that Eisenhow-
er's testimony would be "politically misunderstood."
"Well I'm for it," announced Tobey of New Hampshire, who
I an Elsenhower Republican, but also strong for foreign aid.
"Who knows more about this matter, the financial and
military aspects of NATO, than General Elsenhower?
"Of all witnesses we should seek out for advice while con-
sidering this tremendous appropriation, Elsenhower Is the most
Important." .. ,._ ,
Tobey later tangled with chairman Connelly, when the lat-
ter refused to vote, leaving the count 7-1 against inviting Ike.
"I would like to know how the chairman voted on this mat-
ter," needled the New Hampshirlte.
"I dldnt," replied Connally. ^
"Aren't you compelled under the rules to vote, like the ret
of us?" Inquired Tobey caustically.
"No," scowled the big Texan, who, thanks to a primary
battle, has now become more the senator of the Lone Star state
than of the United States.
NOTEPro-Taft Senator Brewster of Maine voted by proxy
against Inviting Eisenhower, as did Hickenlooper of Iowa. On*
Democrat who usually votes with the administration on foreign
policy but deserted this time was sincere John SParkman of
Alabama. Senate friends attributed his witch to a talk with
Gen. Jerry Persons, also of Alabama, who is a member Of Ike
staff In Paris but has been visiting in Washington.
Senator Russell of Georgia, though previously planning to
enter the California primary, has now backed out.
Some highly placed California Democrats, strongly anti-Tru-
man, urged Russell to run and were keenly disappointed when
he refused to go. _
Though Democratic national chairman Frank McKlnney got
the blame for putting Truman Into the New Hampshire fiasco, it
was actually handsome John Sullivan, the ex-secretary of the

to get the President into the race, but McKlnney stood pat.

Legislators Dust Off Project
To Raise Marines To 300,000
WASHINGTON, March 26. (UP) The
Houie Rule* Committee reversed itself yesterday
and approved a bill to strengthen the Marine
Corp* after being told the situation in Korea
might be better if there had been more Marines
two years ago.
The Committee, which plays the role of "traf-
fic cop" in funneling legislation to the House
floor, acted after chairman Carl Vinson of> the
House Armed Services urged it to retrieve the
measure from a committee pigeon-hole.
The Georgia Democrat said

While it was reported that
Vinson may be ready to make

Two Children Freeze To Death.
3rd Waits Till They Wake Up
OCO-KtO, Wl(\ March M
(UP). Beicuers who had
searched 43 hours for three
amall children who vanished In
the lonely North Wards during
a blizzard found one of them
alive and two frozen to death
yesterday in a tragic sequel to
the weekend's disastrous storms.
The bodies of Kathy Church,
S, and. her cousin, stevle Ken-
nedy, 5, were found huddled In
an outbuilding near a hunting
lodge, where they apparently
had sought refuge from the
wind and pelting snow.
Kathy> stater, 4-year-old
Mary Ann, was sitting on the
Eorch of a vacant cabin, wait-
ig for the other two children
to "wake up."
The child apparently had suf-
fered no serious effects from the
10 degree temperature that had
killed the other two, although
she was half-starved and clad
only in overalls and a coat. She
had no hat or mittens.
Tm thirsty," were-the first
words she said.
Asked where the other chil-
dren were, she replied, that they

An Individual contest is a very

Altogether, you have to adapt

seconds to the methods you will

like a cinch, uoesn't it?
Sidney Silodor, of Philadel-
phia, was the miracle man who
won last year's Individual Cham-
pionship.-Today's hand shows an
exampje .of .hie.skill.........
West opened thr. q u e e a o
spades, and the suit was con-
tinued until Silodor rffed the
third round. He laid down the
ace of hearts and discovered the
had news about the trump suit.
Sidney.saw that he could af-
ford to lose only one more trick
to the ace of diamonds. He
would have to get to dummy once
for a trump finesse and twice
more for diamond finesses. This
meant that he would need three
entries to dummy.
Silodor therefore led a low
club from his hand and blithely
finessed dummy's ten. When that
remarkable finesse held, he re-
turned the ten of hearts from
dummy. East covered with the
queen, and declarer won and
drew a third trump.
Now he left the last trump out
| in order to turn his attention to
,the diamonds. He entered dum-
my with the queen of clubs and
returned a diamond to finesse
the ten. When allowed to hold
this trick he entered dummy a-
gain with the ace of clubs and
finessed the jack of diamonds.
West could take the aer of dia-
monds, but could do nothing to
defeat the contract. He actually
led another diamond, whereupon
Silodor won with the king and
at las tcould draw the last trump.

who are on the lookout for a
wife: Go EAST, young men, go
The East is full of ambitious
girls who have gone to the big
cities to take Jobs. They're ambi-
tious, often they are well-educa-
ted, intelligent, and certainly
they are self-confident, else they
would never have dared to leave
the old home town to buck the
competition of a big city.
They may be a little too career-
minded for you at first. But give
them a year or.two In the big cl-
$7and IT thTT mart, theylf
begin to see that fighting one's
way up the ladder of success is
a pretty lonely business for a
They'll have had a taste of
loneliness, of elbowing their way
through the orowd, and they
may discover that a career isn't
what they want out of life, after
By that time, they'll be mar-
riage-minded and the attentions
of a marriage-minded young man
won't be snubbed.
So, if it's a smart Idea for the
husband-hunting girl to go West,
It's bound to be sound advice for
the wife-hunting young man to
go East.
If a girl's best marriage chanc-
es are where the most men are. a
man's best marriage chances are [\
where the most girls are.
Go East, young man, go East.

High Democrat Demands Ikes
NATO Resignation 'At Once
House Democratic leader John
W. McCormack denounced Gen.
Dwlght D. Elsenhower yesterday
for "campaigning" for the Re-
publican Presidential nomination
while still In uniform.
He called on the general to re-
sign "at once."
The Massachusetts Democrat
charged that Elsenhower's "dual
position" as Presidential candi-
date and commander of North
Atlantic treaty forces Is "unfor-
tunatein fact, Inconsistent and
He Insisted that Eisenhower Is
an active candidate, no matter
what his supporters claim.
McCormack agreed with Sen.
Robert A. Taft (R-O.), an an-
nounced GOP Presidential aspir-
ant, that "Gen. Elsenhower
should at once relieve himself of
his command and be a candidate
said It would be "an entirely dif- pie on April 2 which will clear
ferent thing to leave a critical
assignment" to boost his political
President Truman told a Key
West news conference Thursday
that Eisenhower is free to resign
his military command whenever
he wishes.
McCormack's statement mark-
ed the first time a high Demo-
crat had spoken out against Els-
enhowefs service In Europe.
It came as the general author-
ized publication of a two-year-
old Interview in which he charg-
ed that the nation's domestic
policies had drifted "too far to
the left." He said the United
States Is not the kind of country
that needs Socialism and should
not follow Britain's example.
The Interview was obtained by
David Lawrence, editor of U.8.
News and World Report, on Jan.

he MmFmSiT mission to publish It In the ma-

palgnmg for President In tne!E|gennower )g prepartag a televl-
unlform of our country wnicn report to the American peo-

The last word from Elsenhow-
er on his possible return to this
cuntry out of uniform was a let-
to he wrote to 19 Republican con-
gressmen on the eve of his tri-
umph In the New Hampshire
He said then that only a "com-
pelling call or relief by higher
authority" President Truman
would cause him to step down.
Otherwise, he wrote, he saw no
"personal or political circumstan-
ces" which warranted his depar-
ture from Europe In the Imme-
diate future.
Elsenhower also said there was
question In his mind about
the "propriety" of accepting a
Republican national convention
call to the Presidency. But be
uie way lor his return to this
country In May for three speech-
es dealing with foreign and do-
mestic policies.
These dispatches said Elsen-
hower will make it clear that he
to no longer "Indispensable" In
his present Job a point he
brought out In his March 10 let-
ter to the 19 GOP congressmen.
Gen. Alfred M. Oruenther. Els-
enhower's chief of staff, testified
In his commander's behalf yes-
terday on, the administration's
foreign aid program. But talking
with reporters later, he said Eis-
enhower had barred him from
the discussion of politics.
"The boss told me some time
ago that, when It comes to poli-
tical matters, I'd be very much,
more useful to him If I stayed
out," Oruenther said.
McCormack Insisted that Els-
enhower already Is an active
candidate for President "no
matter what high-sounding lan-
guage his supporters may use."

LONDON, March 28 (UP)
Former Prime Minister Clement
Attlee won a resounding victory
within the Socialist Party hart
whah Labor members of Parlia-
ment gave him a hearty con-
fidence vote in his leadership.
Attlee ha been feuding bit-
terly with leftwinger Aneurln
Be van over forcing labor mem-

Kansas Meets St. John's In NCAA Basketball Finals Tonight
MIAMIAll baseball managera belong to the seme ledge. In
trouble thay stick together, like tblevM.lt a brother la In dla-
treaa they are promptly reedy with mceor and solace. Thtu yon
final none of them down here faulting Charier Dreeaen. It wai
the hired hands who blew that big Brooklyn lead laat faU.
"Look at the record," they eay ehallenalngly.
When you look you eee they hare a point. Not the *eaaon-
long totals, just the figures cohering the tattered retreat which
saw the dissipation of a 18 1,2-game bulge. From a .390 hitting
team the Bums dropped to .960 down the stretch. Duke Snider
dwindled to .266, Oil Hodges to .284 (and stopped hitting hom-
ers, too) and PeeWee Reese, so staunch In the clutches, to .217.
Por fire weeks big Neweombe and Ralph Branca couldn't win
for losing. And they were the Bums' No. 2 and 3 pitchers.
"Dreaeen can't hit for 'em and he can't pitch for 'em, can
he?" the brothers glowered. "They weren't saying he was a bad
manager when he had 'em way out In front were they?"
They weren't true enough. But the thought persisted that
if the player blew the lead It must hare been due to their vir-
tuosity that the lead had been gained at all. It remained unex-
Ereeaed In warm admiration of the tenacious loyalty of the
There Is no more touching Illustration of the fealty which
loins the dugout trouble domes In their protective benevolence
than Casey Stengel.
'.'You know, I coulda helped that fellow a lot In the World
Series," the Yankee manager was saying. "1 coulda been the
(;oat and they'd forgot all about Dressen and Branca and blow-
ng the pennant. Dressen played It right and he lost; I played
It wrong and I win. That's how It goes sometimes."
It Worked for Stengel.
8tengel was talking about how he went against the book
and used a left-handed pitcher against the Giants right-hand-
ed batting strength with the bases loaded and none out In the
ninth Inning of the final game. You know, Oen. Abner Double-
day, Bmiiy Post and maybe Dean Achesort say that's all
wrong/Right-handers hit best against left-handers and vice-
But the Yankee thinker brought In Lefty Bob Kur.ava un-
mindful of the fact that the next two hitters were the-Giants
best, and additionally that they were right-hand swingers, Monte
irvln and Bob Thomson. At the time the Yankees were leading
4-1. They hadn't been able to get Irvln out from the start of
the series and by then everybody knew Thomson capable of
knocking the ball as far as Elmlra.
"If one of them guys gets hpld of a good ball and parks It
In the stands I'm a bum," ruminated Stengel. "But I don't fig-
ur they are going to hit my guy safe, That's why I call him
In. I don't care at the time whether he throws left or right or
with both hands. I know he has hard stuff and he can get It
over and I know I got the guys who can catch it."
Well, that's what happened. Irvln lifted to Oene Woodllng
in left. Bo did Thomson. Then Bal Yvars, pinch-hitting, another
right-hander, lifted to Hank Bauer In right, who made the last
put out In the game and series on one knee all of which made
Stengel look wiser than King Solomon after a double order of
brains and eggs.
Kuzava produced precisely the.type of pitching Stengel
knew him capable of. fast controlled stuff down the middle, the
kind of stuff the batters had to hit straight away and couldn't
pull Into the stands for the lethal blow. Stengel knew what
he was doing when he assigned the left-hander to defy the
Giants right-handed power But sound and acute as this think-
ing was he would have been a bum if Kuzava hadn't perform-
ed perfectly.
"As a matter of fact," Stengel winked, "I was counting
on a double play, not three fly balls." I was saying to myself
"just hit It to Rizzuto and we pick up the checks and go home."
4 a- It Didn't for Dressen
Evidently Dressen wasn't fated to get any breaks once the
gods adopted the Miracle Mert of Coogan's Bluff. As Stengel
points out. DreMeh played It right but lost. He even played it
so he couldn't be second-guessed by the book lovers; he used
Branca, a rlghty against Thomson, a right. Like Kuaava, Branea
throws hat? stuff and If he'd pitched like Kuaava Thomson
wouldn't have been able to pull the ball into the seats.

It Isn't until you examine the records minutely that under-
standing begins to dawn. Then you come across two little items
not -seemingly of vital Import, but substantial enough to decide
a photo finish and to indicate with regard to one a basic weak-
ness and to the other a tactical error.
- The Bums led the league in hitting Into double plays with
147 which was 81 more than the Qlants. Would this suggest
that Dressen's passion for the hit and run Is carried to ob-
scene lengths, or that he lacked the personnel for the maneuver?
There were only two pitching staffs In the league that
were easier to wrest runs from than the Bums..Chicago and
Pittsburgh. What difference does it make how many runs you
core if you let the other fellow score more? Keep this fact
In mind when assessing the Bums power In relation to the end
result. Ahd Dressen had better keep it. very much In mind be-
cause It stresses the one department he must strengthen if he
hopee to win. Pitching. He didn't have enough last season and
it's a risky guess that he'll have enough this year.

Brannan Keeps
Hot Ink Flowing
In Truman Pen
Sen. John J. Williams Del.) charged today that Sec-
retary of Agriculture Charles F.
Brannan is malting like Pres-
ident Truman by writing nasty
letters while the President Is
out of town.
He also challenged Brannan
to go Into Delaware during the
lorthcoming political campaign
'and debate Administration farm
policies with him.
Williams appeared at his own
request before the Senate Agri-
culture Committee to take Issue

with an 11-page letter Brannan
wrote him Monday about grain
storage operations at Camp
Crowder, Mo.
2 Shot, Caught; 3rd Hunted
In $600,000 Armored Car Haul
Brannan's letter lashed out
at Williams and urged him to
give a "coherent" picture of
the operations he first pub-
licized in a Senate speech.
Williams said he intends to
"overlook the personal refer-
ences" in Brannan's letter which
chairman Allen J. Ellender (D.,
La.) made a part of the com-
mittee record.
"I understand," he said, "that
Mr. Brannan is playing Pres-
ident while Mr. Truman is In
Florida and practicing up writ-
ing letters."
Brannan dismissed as "ab-
surd" Williams' contention
that profits on Camp Crowder
leases are too high.
He also said the Senator's
position is "Incomprehensible"
since Williams was "one of the
chief architects" of the policy
which the department follow- |
ed in the Camp Crowder
The committee Is studying the
Camp Crowder storage arrange-
ment under which a newly for-
med firm, Midwest Storage and
Realty Co., Inc., leased buildings
at Camp Crowder from the War
Assets Administration and then
leased them back to the Com-
modity Credit Corp.
Brannan contended the po-
licy conformed with a legal
requirement that the storage
, program use regular com-
mercial channels wherever
told the committee
1) In four similar instances
the Agriculture Department had
leased government facilities di-
rect from other government
agencies without the lease and
release operation.
2) Midwest formed a few
days before its leases were con-
cluded and after its officers had
approached the Agriculture De-
partment about the storage con-
tracts could not be considered
a part of the usual channels of
grain trade.
DANVER, Mass^ jMarch 20
(UP). Three men yesterday
stole $000,000 from an armored
truck which had Just completed
deliveries of an additional $1,-
000,000 and within two hours
! two suspects were shot and
captured while a third was
1 hunted.
The trio looted the parked
truck of the I S. Armored Car
Corp. while three guards were
drinking coffee in a drugstore
in bustling Danvers square.
In their haste, the bandits
overlooked an additional
The two men who were shot
while atempting to escape from
a New Hampshire state trooper
50 miles from the scene of the
audacious daylight robbery were
identified as Norman Viele, 25,
. of Boston and Joseph William
Kelley, 32, of Woburn.
Kelley was shot In the chest
I by Trooper Clifton Hildreth
while resisting arrest after the
policeman had forced the pair's
speeding car off the highway
with a roadblock.
Viele was shot in the up-
per leg.
They underwent surgery at
a hospital with state police
standing guard beside the
operating table.
Superintendent Ralph W. Cas-
well of the New Hampshire state
police said there was an ex-
change of shots between state
troopers and the suspects before
the men were wounded. Their
automobile was to be towed to a
garage for a search.
Caswell said that because of
"the circumstances Involved in
their capture" the two men
were being questioned about
the Danvers holdup.
Both men had previous po-
lice records. Kelley had been
sought for some time on a lar-
ceny warrant by Massachusetts
state police. Each had served
prison terms for burglary.
The pair were riding in an
automobile stolen from Robert
Armstrong of Winchester, Mass.
Armstrong now Is in Europe.
Even as Kelley and Viele were
captured, some 100 state and
local police Joined the FBI In
hunting a third suspect in the
Olendale square section of
Everett, Mass.
The original getaway car was
found in Everett and police
theorized that after the holdup
the trio split up two travel-
ing north Into New Hampshire
and the other south Into Everett.
For a time, state police used
a bloodhound in an attempt to
track down the third suspect
The bloodhound took the scent
from the gateway car, and
sniffed his way to a point 75
feet away, state police said that
another automobile had been
parked at that spot earlier. The
suspect may have used the sec-
ond car to escape.
The robbery, executed so
swiftly that no one saw it,
was the largest since seven
Halloween masked gunmen
looted Brink's Inc. of $1,219,-
0M in Boston Ian. 17, 195*.
The first anyone was aware
of the holdup was when Dan-

It also belies Communist al-
legations of UN command atro-
cities in Korea.
These statements were made
today by Mrs. Olive Remington
Goldman, US representative to
the UN Commission on status
of women. The group is discus-
sing ways of assuring full poli-
tical rights to women through-
out the world.
Her remarks were prompted
by a verbal attack by USSR re-
presentative Elizavleta Popova
I on the quality and extent of the
commission's work.
Mrs. Goldman called atten-
iton to the fact some two mil-
lion Koreans fled from Com-
munists North Korea "even
while the UN armies were
forcing the withdrawal of the
Communist invaders of South
Korea," and more than 700,000
have fled to UN protection
"from the very territory" where
these alleged atrocities were said
to have occurred.
"It is absurd," she declared,"
to believe that any such vast
of men, women and
flee for protec-
other occasions when he was
scheduled for questioning. They
want to ask him about the han-
dling of tax cases while he was a
tax official.
Bolich is a friend of former
internal revenue commissioner
Joseph D. Nunan, Jr.. who has
been questioned behind closed
doors and will be summoned soon
to testify in public. .
Meantime Rep. John W.
Byrnes (R-Wis.) suggested that
Senate Republican leader Styles
Bridges "clear up" his role in the
$7,000,000 tax-delinquency case
through town. He tooted his
whistle at them but they failed
to stop.
A few minutes later, Noonan
stepped into Ropes' drugstore
and casually suggested to the
three guards that they check
their load. They did and found
the money gone. The guards
were questioned by authorities.
Police said the cab door of
the truck apparently had
keen left unlocked and the
robbers reached Inside to
press a button that unlocked
lie rear door leading to the
money compartment.
The truck had just deliver-
ed Sl,eoe,6f to the Danvers

Jerry Bishop, assistant man-
ager of the drugstore, said:
"Nobody knew the robbery was
happening although It occurred
under our very noses."
Bishop, who served coffee to
the three guards, said: "The
first thing we knew. Officer
Noonan came In, told us about
the speeding car and suggested
to the guards that they check
their truck."
Noonan said the car was tra-
veling so fast he could not ob-
tain a description of the men.
All I know was that there
were three of them," he said.
