SLAYS PARENTS, ATTACKS GIRI
EIDENBURG, Ind.. March 1 (UP)
A 12-year-old farm girl stumbled
across fields to the home of neigh
bors today to sob out a story of a
midnight intruder who killed her
father and mother with a rifle and
then attacked her.
Those killed were Mr. and Mrs.
The slayer shot them with a .22
caliber rifle while they slept and
then went Into an adjoining room
where the couple's three children
cowered, awakened by the shots.
He attacked the eldest girl, then
threatened the children with death
if they informed police. The children
were so frightened that they re
mained whimpering in bed until day
light, when the girl gained courage
to run to neighbors. Police ordered
a state-wide alarm for the Brands'
hired man, Cliff Redmond, 25, who
was reported missing.
The girl, extremely nervous and
under care of a doctor, supplied little
detailed information except that one
man perpetrated the crime.

all farmers' institutions and t lie
.Manley Co-Op Grain Assn. has borne
out this fact to a remarkable degree.

managed it 11 years.

was more necessary for farmers to
stick together than the present and
the management of this elevator as

for the betterment of the farmer.
This popular association is known
throughout this section as being re
liable and has a reputation for pay
ing highest market prices for grain
at all times. Their motto is "HIGH

stockholders include farmers and
citizens of the community, your
neighbors and friends, and it is pure

of every citizen's loyal support.
The Board of Directors is to be
congratulated on keeping this ele
vator upon the firm basis that it now
onjoys. It has weathered the storms
of adversity and we predict better
times ahead for the energetic farmers
