In Miller Case
Insinuations that he had em
ployed professional "spotters" to
detect an employe who , was
"knocking down" on cash receipts
of his firm, were vigorously de
nied last night by L. A. Scheelar.
Such a state' of affairs was ap
parently Intimated by Judge L H.
MeMahan In the circuit courtroom
Friday when T. O. Miller was be
fore him on a charge of taking
150 hftlonzinr to Scheelar. Miller
was sentenced to a year in prison
and paroled but required to maze
good the shortage as rapidly as
he was able.
Scheelar, proprietor or an auto
vreckinr company, said that af
ter suspecting Miller, he had ar
ranged for several local men to
make nur chases and check up on
amounts ef cash paid In, thus en
abling him to obtain a coniession
from Miller. No threats were used
and the amount actually taken
was much larger than was men
tioned tn the complaint, Scheelar
