two youths. Fred Lyons, 16. and Tom
McLaughlin. 19. told very conflicting
stories concerning their presence

told the officers that he lives In Ten

Pendleton officers by wire. Sherirf
T. D. Taylor of Tendleton wired that
no knowledge of the residence of Ly

friend of McLaughlin's appeared at

dependence. McLaughlin later ad
mitted this and agreed to return to
his home If released.
The pair first attempted to explain
their presence In the" alley by claim
ing they were afraid of the police.
Later they told the officers that they
had arrived in Salem in. company
with a third man whom they de
scribed as a crook and ot whom they
professed great fear. Not much cred
