          Clyde Lingenfelter,  Alonzo Nigh,  and  Earl Boring,  three boys about sixteen years old, residing in Hanover township, have been arrested on the charge of attempting to assault  Maude Fleetwood, the fourteen year-old daughter of  George Fleetwood, who caused their arrest.  The affidavit says they enticed the girl to the old abandoned church in the Hanover graveyard, two miles south of Morristown, where the girl's mother found her.  The boys claim that there was nothing improper whatever in their actions.  All are of good families and are now on bond.  Fleetwood is a teamster and declares if the courts do not punish the boys he will kill them.  He is a dangerous man and has killed one man in Kentucky.
