It was too good to be true
f Charles Fixmer of 2223 Washing-
" ton blvd. dropped into a crap game
at 632 S. Dearborn st. with a lone
dollar in his' "jeans" last night. He
rolled the bones to such good end
that he started 'down the stairs from
the joint an hour later with $251.
But before he got to' the street one
k' qf the men,whd had "faded" him in
his lucky rolls shoved a revolver in
his stomach and took the whole
bunch of dough.

for fair women of fine figure and an
attractive "way" about them to be
come friendly with men traveling
alone who look as if they pack a well
lined pocket or a check book that
isn't ashamed of the figures on its
stub. As soon as the train had
crossed 'a. state line, the man, it is
said, would find he was sheltering a
"badger" game expert in his berth
or stateroom and would face the al
ternative of "coming across" or fac
ing publicity that might prompt a
divorce suit or social ostracism.

until the federal authorities get
through with them, but even if they"
get prison sentences from a federal
court they will still have to stand
trial in Cook county when they leave
prison, if Hoyne s in office.
Another blackmail plot, believed
to have been "operated independent
ly of the syndicate, was uncovered
