ALEDO MURDER CLIMAX OF ROW IN CARD GAME (Continued From Page One.) until there was a knock at the door. Bob, going to the peep hole, asked who was there.' He opened the door a trifle and a fellow on the outside stuck a big gun in his face and or dered him to stick up his hands. I could see there were two of them, both slender fellows, wearing hats. " 'Stick them up and do it quick,' one said, while- one remained where he was and kept us covered, the other advanced to ho table and scooped up the money lying thereon. After taking all the mon ey on the table, they began going through our pockets. "The first thing I heard was the command to Bob to keep his hands up, then I saw Bob take out his gun and the shooting began. Bob backed against the wall, shooting as he backed. The bandits opened fire and with the bullets flying fast around, I dropped to the floor for safety. Tbe bandits backed out of the" door, firing as they Vent and fled through the hall and down the stairs to the street..' "I was the first to follow them from the house. As I reached the sidewalk I saw the two go around the corner of the fruit store. I got behind a lamp post, expecting fus ther shooting. Tbe two men Jump ed into a small car, parked at the curb, and drove south on College avenue. "Chief of Police George Reed was standing In front of Johnson's res taurant I yelled, 'Go get them, George. They're holdup men.' Reed pulled his gun and fired twice. The bandits fired several Shots in re turn." When questioned by Sheriff John P. Fleming, Laughlin stuck to his story.. He maintained that there were no hot words among the card players and stated that Swearing ton was the only one of the five who did any shooting. No trace could be found of the three horse race men, whom Laughlin says set as partners at the card table. They disappeared immediately after the shooting. The murdered man was shot three times. Police authorities of all neigh boring cities were notified of the murder last night by Sheriff Flem ing and a search of two states was on today for the men. Swearington was 32 years old, and is survived by a wife and four-year-old daugh ter, who are at Winchester, Iowa. Laughlin is being held by the lo cal police pending further develop ments in the case. T AID-UP' MEMBERS OP BY. TRAINMEN NUMBER 179,558 Cleveland. Ohio, Sept 16.
