EXPLOITATION ae oe ee 5.DAY PLANT LETS READERS TRY arc Dey See That Letter? THE ANSWERS Go In ‘G-Men’ Prize Contest [FIRST DAY ] Listen, you fellows, here’s how I stole the money. I put on my overcoat and left the house and went over to Joe’s cheap boarding house, because a couple of fellows there had inside information about the bank. So I picked up my girl and five tough guys and hopped into my motor car and drove over to the bank. A couple of policemen were standing around but they didn’t see us. The holdup was a cinch, and we escaped from the place with a couple of sacks of money and the plainclothesmen on our trail. A couple of cops were there, too, and they joined in the chase, but we eluded them, and went to a hideaway. We divided the bills, and found too many silver dollars and nickels in the sack so lining the route they would take af-| away!” She said “Yakrona is my | we threw them away.
