James V. Allred, state attorney
general, has been prosecuting a suit
for $17,000,000 in penalties against

OFFICERS HUNTING MAN WHO
HAS WORTHLESS AUTOGRAPH
Officers have been hunting this
week for a strange man who came
to town last Friday, autographed a
number of checks and left secretly
and hurriedly with his profits for an
unannounced destination. ,
This individual, who proved beyond
a doubt that there really is something
in a name financially, went to an
apartment Friday afternoon and rent-
ed it with a warm check. Then he
went to one of Belton’s leading gro-
cery stores, passed a second check
for $10, and received $2.50 in gro-
ceries and $7.50. in cash.
Leaving the groceries at the apart-
ment, he got the landlady to endorse
a check so that he might make a de-
posit on a gas meter. The check
was foi^ $15.00, leaving him $5.00
change after making the deposit.
Then, with all /this wealth in his
jeans, he suddenly remembered a din-
ner engagement in Shanghai or Tim-
buctoo and set out at once to keep it.
