OSTMASTER LUNT CONFESSES TO TAKING CAR Two Juvenile Auto Thieves ,;. Took Bracken's Car, Which Broke Dcwn Near Sacra mento, California. . Deputy Sheriff P. P. Christison re. turned from Salt Lake City yesterday securing a confession from a juvenile auto thief who in company with another boy about his own age confessed to making away with A.' F.

Christison had his suspic Ions aroused concerning them which led his investigation to where they came from. By making Inquiry in Salt Lake he finally iocated the parents of the boys and also fdund the boy Moore who was soon confronted with the task of explaining his actions in Nephl at the time of the disappearance of the car. After some strenuous questioning he con The fessed his part in the affair. other boy he said was in Portland From the confession it appears that after taking the car they load cd their bicycles into the auto and started for Los Angeles finally going as far as Sacramento where Moore claims the car broke down and they left it in that city. Moore came back home to Salt Lake City while West burg went to Portland. The father of Moore promised to make the matter right in regard to ,. the car, and In the meantime action will be taken against the boys in the Juvenile Court. g, t r SCHOOL BOARD HOLD MEETING , The regular meting of the Board of Education of Juab School District was held Tuesday evening.

EMPTIES GAS TAXK DlItl.XG THE NIGHT Delbert Bosh, who runs the school truck from Levan to Nephi, was not in a very good frame of mind this morning when he arrived here about an hour late with the students. The cause of his show of temper was due to the fact that someone during the night had visited his car and practi cally emptied the contents of his gasoline tank. Knowing that he put In 10 gallons of the fluid the previous night, Mr. Bosh never thought to examine it this morning before leaving, with the result that when about a mile out from Levan the car refused to go. On investigation he discovered the cause. We can Imagine the feelings of Mr. Bosh when he had to walk back to Levan and secure a new supply of gasoline In order to bring the stu dents here. Before leaving today be is going to get a supply of locks so that It will not occur again.
