LXXIII, No. 203 Aaaociated Pre$$ (AP/ ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 5, 1954—FOURTEEN PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY lOc AMARILLO POLICE BAFFLED Bank Shoplifter Steals $75,000 AMARILLO. .Ian. 4 '/P Seventy-five thousand dollar? was taken just after noon from the First National Bank here today in what had all appearances of shop-lifting theft. The money, contained in a large rhite money bag. was part of a shipment to the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas. When last seen the money bag was on a shelf in a teller’s cage near the rear door of the bank lobby. Employes Quizied It was discovered to be missing about 12:50 p.m. when guards of the Price Armored Car Service ar- j missing sack rived at the bank to take the ship-; and SIO bills. Ti'ent to the postoffice. An immed- j late search of the bank was made ' and questioning of bank employes and officers was still in progress late today. First assumption of investigating officers was that aomeone had en- j tered the rear doo’' of the cage, j picked up the sack and walked cut the rear d(wr of the bank lob-^ by. into the lobby of the main building, and out into the street. It would have been jxissible for a long-armed man to reach over the wall of the teller’s cage and lilt the sack from the shelf, hut ofticers believed ar.yone reaching over the top of the cage would ha\e attracted attention. Prepares Shipment The last person to hantile the money in the bank, and the one who discovered the money bag »o be mis.sing, was Phil Sanderson of .Am.arillo, \auit teller. It was Sanderson who prepared the shipment in the vault' in the basement of the bank and placed it in the commercial teller’s cage to await pickup by the armored senice cars. The two tellers on duty in the commercial teller’s cage were Mr.s. Mar>’ Ann Owens, and Mrs. Betty Gooden Sanderson said he noticed that one of the sacks was missing when Mrs. Owens .started to hand them to the armored service guards. “I saw the armored ear men waiting in the lobby and I went into the commercial teller’s cage, just as Mary Ann picked up one of the sacks to hand it to them.’ said Sandei'son. ‘T asked where the third sack vas.” he said: Routine Shipment The shipment was a routine shipment of surplus currency. Tne contained only $.> dent of the bank, explaining that the bank keeps a certain amount of currency on hand but makes shipments to the Federal Reserve bank whenever an excessive amount accumulates in the vault, “Sometimes there is a .surplus of S3 and $10 bills, sometimes there’s a .surplu.s of larger bills.” he explained.    ! Sanderson said the armored car; service guards make regular calls | at the bank, usuaily between 11:30 a.m. fCST) and 12 30 p.m. Bank oflficers said the lobby was ■ crowded, with lines of people wait- Ike Sees Prosperity, Raps 'Doom Peddlers Grand Jury Relurns 10 Indictments ing in front of all windows, at the : “We make shipments every few j time the money w^as discovered to da.vs.” said Dale Smiley, vice presi-1 be mis.sing. $160,000 Lost In U.S. Bureau (•City Housing Squabbie Itiil Not Sottled WASHINGTON. .Ian 4 ti’ A daring thief stele $160,000 in new S20 bilKs from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing by switching two dummy packages for the real thing, officials discovered today. It was by far the biggest theft in the bunjau s long money-m.ik-ing history, and apparently o<'-curred over the holiday weekend when Ghristmas-w rapped packages were commonplace The audacious switch was di.<-covered today when a bureau em-p’oye lifting bund’" of money detected the bogus packages. They were lighter than the ordinary 8-pound bundles and contained only paper cut to the si?i' of money. Calls Inventory Henry J. Holtzclaw, a.ssistant di- j and local iK)Uce were call^^d in. I Neither Holtzclaw nor Secret Serv-I ice Chief L. E. Baughman offered any positive theory a.s to exactly i how the money was taken, nor ' would they say flatly that it had ! b^en removed from the building. They suggested, however, that I the thief may have walked out with ' : the bundles of money disgui.sed as i Christmas presents. .\t that time. ; ! Holtzclaw said, there was the i ; usual exchange of gifts among i work- rs and it was impractical to .search every package carried ' away, as is the practice during the , rest of the year.

Rogers has appeared before the council on ;wevious ocra>ions and asked ! them to void the contract and le- : luiul his money The council le-lused and in December refused to use the money to pave in front of lols owned by Rogers. •At Monday s meeting. Rogers told the council. ‘ You now hold about $8,300 of my money and only ha\e 14 month.? yet to go and if we don t build another 50 houses out there, well, but you all can make us forfeit that money and .so rather than fw forieited, km going to build the house- M.ayor R H Baker .asked Rog ers if an extrnsion of time on Ik- inventory which confirmed the i losi. At first it was announced that the bills had been taken from the bureau .s giant    proo    ’’ vault.

Four Secret Service men were , ' assigned to tl%.' case and the FBI j forced during the holidays. Search Being Made However, on the tKissihilit.v that the money may «till h? In the building a minute' .search was l>eing made tonight of e\ery conceivable hiding pdace. Both Holtzclaw and Baughman ■s.iid it’s possible the money may ; have been mislaid through some ' " ‘ mistake but they declared this unlikely. .Another possibility, which offi-; cials lal>elr*<i improbable, was that ! some disgruntled worker may ; have hidden the money Avithout ; any thought of trying to make off i with It, The bureau’s iorce was slashed by 1,000 cmploye.s during 1953 and ail additional 400 were slat-.xl to get the ax .soon.

CORNELL WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 (/P)—President Eisenhower solemnly assured the American people tonight that “every legitimate means” is being used to maintain the nation’s prosperity “and will continue to be used as necessary.” But, the President said, he does not intend to deal in “pie-in-the-sky promises to all, nor in bribes to a few, nor in threats to any.” In a nationwide television-radio talk. Eisenhower hit out at “self-appointed peddlers of gloom and doom” and said his administration will not tolerate ‘a boom-and-bust America,” dependent on war or threats of war for prosperity.
