Bremen Youths Harass and Attack Automobile Parties Leaving

Seven local automobile parties, it is understood narrowly escaped being victims of the insane horseplay of six intoxicated youths from Bremen, Indiana, at Lake Maxinkuckee Sunday night. The Bremen thugs gathered some little distance away from the lake on one of the main traveled thoroughfares leading south of the lake. All automobile parties passing that way were harassed and If any of them resented the treatment of the c ulprits, the latter showed fight.

According to report, one of their favorite antics was to jump on the running board of the passing automobiles, slap the women passengers in the face, p ull the ears and noses of the children, if any, and punch he driver of the car In the face or head with their fists. In one or two instances the men returned the blow and a general free-for-all fight ensued, which usually res ulted in a victory for the organized gang by reason of their superior numbers. One automobile was wrecked, according to reports, and blood flowed freely In at least one fight.

One of two local parties was just ready to leave for Logansport when the driver was warned of the presence of the near-highwaymen. The authorities were finally notified and swearing in deputies, made a raid upon the gang. It was only after a fight in which the officers used their clubs freely, that they were able to arrest them and take them to Culver

The men arrested and fined on charges of Intoxication and assa ulted battery were j. E. Miller, c.t. Coverstone, Ora Klopestian, Rudolph Klopestain, Walter Kimes and Harold Hochomer.

After the payment of their fines they were released, according to- word from Culver . 10 Aug 1920

Hydroskipper the Product of Genius of Logansport Machinists Makes Appearance

Orpha Carter, Stetson Tarver, and Lee Turman have combined wits in the manufacture of a device which Carter terms a hydroskipper. It was given its first tryout on Eel river opposite Riverside park last night before the astonished eyes of park frequenters.

The water-going mechanism consists of a boat, upon which has been constructed a body. probably six feet high enclosing a Ford engine. The body is flanked with wings and the affair has the appearance of a sea monster of antediluvian days

When the hydroskipper has been completed, it is the purpose of the designers to launch it on Lake Maxinkuckee with proper christening ceremonies. It is understood that a bottle of vinegar will be used in stead of champagne. "Baldy" Turpin, too, will probably take the place of the blushing maiden who, since time immemorial has christened sea-worthy vessels.

Interest in the performance of the hydroskipper was keen last night and hundreds watched from the bank with quite as much skepticism as those deluded New Yorkers who decried F ulton's attempt to propel a boat by steam, more than a century ago.

Carter has been working on his invention in the rear of his home at Twenty-fourth and High streets for many moons. While not, admitting that he intends to secure a patent, it is known that-preliminary steps to prevent infringements have been taken.

In many partic ulars it resembles the motor propelled sled which Carter used last winter to travel back and forth from his home at lunchtime. The hydroskipper was able to make a speed of thirty knots an hour under its own power last night. The inventors extravagantly exclaim that their product will in time revolutionize ocean travel by supplanting the slow going ocean liners 19 Jun 1920
