Standing Wheat Saved - Firemen kept flames out of standing wheat at the Glen Kubik farm Monday evening. The fire, believed set by a tractor or combine, was confined to about two acres of stubble. Three fire trucks and seven volunteer firemen responded. Thom Kembel, Bernie Klemmer, Chuck McCormick, Len Folland, Bob Barnes, Ron Snowden and Bob Benzel. – Journal-Times photo

July 28, 1921




In a bold escape at about 6:45 last night Tom Moran, an ex-convict, held in the county jail on a charge of attempted assault, made a break for liberty and so far has not been apprehended. He cut the two inch steel bar of the jail door with a hacksaw. Moran is regarded as a desperate character and every effort is being made by the officers to recapture him. Officers in all the surrounding towns have been notified.
