Remember when?
1920: Kaley Clothing and Shoe Company burglarized
Remember when is gathered from past pages of the Daily Record and other Lawrence County newspapers.

100 years ago

March 24, 1920

Illinois women are barred from voting at the presidential primary on April 13, according to an opinion handed down last week by Attorney General Brundage. The attorney general holds that the women's suffrage act of 1913 does not provide that women may vote on presidential candidates. He cites the fact that the Supreme Court held in the case appealed that the rights conferred upon women could not be extended beyond the express terms of the act.

The store of the Kaley Clothing and Shoe Company, Sumner, was burglarized to the amount of several hundred dollars. Suspicion pointed to a couple of Bridgeport fellows. One, Otto Bopp, was arrested and placed in jail, but no trace of the other, Robert Drake, could be found until it was learned that he was in East St. Louis. A telegram to the chief of police resulted in his arrest and he was brought back.

People from all parts of the county have signified their willingness to assist in the project.

Bi-State Authority chairman Richard Dunseth and Indiana Governor Milton Harding have been assisting in the negotiations.

The Bloodmobile's visit to Bridgeport fell very short of the quota, with only 60 persons participating and two rejected. The reason for the poor turnout is believed to be because school is on Easter break.
