Woman Sentenced for Burglary

Helen Cole, aged 17, the daughter of wealthy parents at Geneva, was sentenced to six months imprisonment at Anamosa by Judge Birdwall for burglary.

She entered a plea of guilty and stated that she was trying to get enough money to get a bicycle. The burglary was committed in the summer and the conviction is the first case of a woman sent up for burglary in that section.
