Chicago. Feb. 2.—Four suspects are
held by police today in connection
with the daring daylight robbery of
the Kenwood Trust & Savings Bank
yesterday. Officials of the bank said
the amount obtained by the robbers
might reach $50,000, although last
night it had been' estimated that it
would not exceed $30,000.
The bank is fully protected by In
surance. A reward of $5,000 wast of
fered for the arrest of the bandits.
Their arrest was the result' of pri
vate sleuthing don by another Chi

this banker's suspicions two week*

other business to do, apparently, but
