once came to my town TN A BACKWARD GLANCE over 50 years as a and I think of myself as a re porter rather than as an editor or would have to rate a visit to my town by John Dillinger and his gang of bank robbers as the one most spectacular news story of my career It happened just 29 years ago 13 its fresh er in my memory than almost anything that has happened since After a half hour or so of terrorizing our business sec tion Dillinger and his five as sociates drove out of town in a car packed with hostages and loot of from our First National Bank This was the one most the jobs pulled off by the Dillinger gang on a 13month crime wave of unprecedented fury in the mid west History has no more dra matic proof of the claim that crime doesnt pay than the fact that within nine months after that Mason City bank rob bery John Dillinger and every one of his five associates were in their graves Let me hark back to a visit I had a year or so ago by a cleancut young man named John Toland He was accompa nied by his lovely Japanese bride His mission here was to learn what he could about the Dillinger visit here He thought he could check and doublecheck everything in a day or two for a book he was preparing to write The day or two he and his wife Toshiko planned to spend here stretched out to a week They found the one most inter esting chapter here We opened our files to John Toland and
