ATTEMPT ROBBERY OF OTHELLO BANK
Some time Monday night or early Tuesday morning the banking room of the Othello State Bank at Othello was entered and an attempt made to enter the vault. The burglar first broke the combination lock knob with a maul, but as that did not avail he tried to dig through the wall. He found after stripping the outer covering that the vault was of concrete which didn't yield very readily, so he desisted in his efforts, left his tools and escaped through the back door.
