"It was an awful sight to see

Two men were arrested about
1:41 p.m. at the Jewell Box or
cfiargra of vagrancy. Both were
held for questioning.
Police were alerted by a Salem
citizen who called to report two
i men who were taping up a win
dow at Pomeroy k Keene. The
men were gone when police arriv
ed, but pieces of tape remained
on the window.
'Ona of the arrested men dic
tated a statement to officers.
Asked if anything was missing
from his account, he sighed,
"Yeah Jewels." He told police that
the tape and glass cutter were
purchased in Salem.
The burglars were apparently
unskilled in the operation of the
glass cutter, and made no serious
cut in the windows, reports show
ed. At both stores the scratches
were made on windows in door
way alcoves; The tape was re
flated to be used to muffle the
sound of shattering glasa.
j Booked on the vagrancy charges
were John Harry Vinton, Seattle,
arid Henry Wilmer Remea, Flood
