Young  Man  Who  is  Alleged  to
Have  Held  Up  Store  at
          Entering a plea of not guilty to a charge of auto banditry, Thursday,  Edward Prater,  held in connection with the robbery of the  Charles Murray  store, in Fountaintown some time in September, was bound over to the circuit court at Shelbyville for trial.  His bond was fixed at $15,000.
          Although no definite date was set for the trial at the time of the arraignment, authorities believe that it will take place early during the January term.
          It was stated that Prater's family, which resides in Indianapolis, would furnish the young man with an attorney.
          No further information regarding the holdup of the Murray store has been gleaned by authorities and Prater himself refuses to discuss the affair.  However, Mr. Murray states that his identification of him as the man who robbed his store is positive.
