Austrian Tells Stranger He Had Accumulated $1,225; Finds
Box Stuffed With Newspapers and Friends Miss

York Hnven, Pa., Oct. 7. —Fleeced
out of $1,225 he had saved during

hend two of his countrymen whom
he befriended during the past week.

"switching boxes."
Last Thursday a man who spoke
the Austrian language and gave his
name as Joe Pavellsck came to the
paper mill and inquired for work.
He did not go to work. After loit
ering around a few hours he made
friends with Pokupcie. Pavelisck
told Pokupcie he had saved SI,BOO,
displaying a large roll of bills and
several "gold nuggets," thought to
have been gilded pieces of stone.
The stranger asked the York Haven
man what he had saved while In this
country and was able to ascertain
the amount of Pokupce's savings.
Pokupcie took the stranger to his
home and gave hiin supper and
lodging. The visitor inquired of the
York Haven man in what bank he
could place his money while he went
to New York for treatment. Pokup
cie recommended a bank. On Friday
another Austrian appeared and he
came acquainted with Pokupcie and
Pavelisck. On this day Pavelisck
said ho would be forced to leave
immediately for a hospital as his
sickness was becoming more severe.
He feigned great pain and nervous
ness.
Before he left the question arose

a tin box provided by the newcomer,
gave his name as Mate Bacis. The
$1,300 belonging to the York Haven
Austrian was placed with it. The
box was locked, placed in a suitcase

if he was to die in the New York
hospital the second Austrian Bacis,
would return to York Haven, l\ave
the box opened and the money turn
ed over to the Pokupcles as a re
ward for their kindness. The two

Vainly Seeks Soldier
Whose Dollar He Spent;
Aunt Who Sent it Dies
York, Pa., Oct. 7.-—Edgar J. Mun
dorf, of Lancaster, is looking for,
Edgar G. Mundorf, of York. He!
has a dollar for him. A dollar, he

his outfit was occupying the Lor
raine sector last May.
The original dollar bill was en
closed in a letter addressed to Edgar
G. Mundorf by his aunt, Miss Tillie
Mundorf, a dressmaker. Edgar J.,
in Lorraine, got it by mistake. As
there was no means of tracing
Edgar G., he used the enclosure. He
recently returned from overseas.
While home in Lancaster on fur
lough he came to York In an effort
to find either the other Mundorf or
Miss Tillie Mundorf and return the
loan. He found that Miss Mundorf
had since died and can discover no
trace of the other Edgar. If he can
not find him, he says he will give
the bill to the York Visiting Nurse
■ Association.
