Peabodjr Refute to DUcum Cathier Brown Story of Strang -. Disappearance . ' . Wichita Beacons Townsfolk of Stanley Brown miss ing asistant bank cashier, who re turned to Peabody Saturday with a report of having ben drugged, beat en and robbed in Wichita, are some what reticent concerning the case. Brown has not reported at the American State Bank or notified it of his return. Brown had been with the institution since its organization in August, 1919. Bank officials refuse to express an opinion, of his explanation ; ;but it is said today that his disappearance may automatically remove him from its employment. Brown was at his home Sunday. Shortly ofter his disappearance, Mrs. Brown was quoted as , saying she "didn't care if he never came back." She has been at their home with him however, since his return. A friend who called on him, reported that he seemed "dopy" and complained of pain in his head. Webb Wilson, assistant chief of police at Hutchinson said Sunday he is not satisfied that the mystery has been entirely cleared up. "Brown telegraphed to Hutchinson for reservations on the Rock Island Limited, from Wichita," he said. "He bought a suit of clothes, either at Hutchinson of in Wichita and seemed to have plenty of money. He- cer tainly had not ben robbed up to that time. He bore no evidence of foul nlay when at a Hutchinson rooming house. There may be something more to this than foul play and blank mem ory," said Mr. Wilson. ; 3 ; Vote- for the" city library.
