state P.ank Commissioner Dolley of
Kansas has taken matters into his

ictc Nebraska from both Oklahoma
and Nebraska, rob a bank or two be

maddened Kansans dare not follow
ti t m. Oklahoma and Nebraska resent
the imputation and the citizens of
these commonwealths are calling upon
Kansas To remove the beam from her
own eye before trying to locate the
motes in those of her neighbors.
The bandits have undoubtedly come
back into their old haunts. They are
riding the same prairies in motor" cars
tha’ they once galloped over upon

The bandits who have come back
are possibly not so spectacular as j
those of a decade ago. but they get
what they go after. Motor cars as a
means of marauding are new even to
Kansas. Put three-score raided banks
and a few thousand depositors can
testify that they are effective beyond
the dreams of those more dramatic
holdup men who dashed into town on
lean and rangy cow ponies.
The states of Iowa, Oklahoma. Ne-'
braska and Texas, as well as Kansas
have suffered from a regular epidemic
of bank robberies during the past few
months, and as many as a dozen dif
ferent towns in Oklahoma have had
their banks burglarized.
