Mrs. Harold Ware Chilled Rather Than Thrilled

BANK ROBBERY STILL MYSTERY AFTER YEAR First anniversary of
the sensational one-man robbery of the Bank of Ellaville
will be reached Monday with no immediate prospect of
solution.  Federal investigators reportedly have been
working on the case since several hours after the hold-up,
but have failed to clear the mystery.  Often during the year
rumors have gone around that the bandit has been captured
and induced to confess, and other similar talk, but queries
to bank officials have proven them false.  Ellaville got its
thrill of a lifetime that lovely October morning when the
word was passed that a sockless, blue-eyed daredevil had
stolen an announced sum of $5,000 while townspeople were
going about their way in much the same gait as on many other
Monday mornings in many other months for a long, long time. 
There were those, however, who were chilled rather than
thrilled by the stick-up, for Cashier Harry F. Dixon and
Assistant Cashier Mrs. Harold Ware found out, as Harry
expressed, " .............. it feels to loo! k down the
barrel .............."
