The Star Novelty Company which was engaged in the coin and vending machine business, had an office at 4151 Delmar in St. Louis, Missouri.
At 9 am on March 21, 1958, John J Gazzoli, an official with the company, was seated at his desk when his office door swung open and three masked men with guns appeared. Mr. Gazzoli reached for his gun and the three men began shooting. He fired 6 shots at them, wounding one and causing the other two to flee. The wounded man tried to leave but Gazzoli cracked him over the head with his empty gun. Gazzoli and another employee held the man until police arrived.

SHOOTING AT HOLDEN

A fatal shooting occurred at Holden Wednesday night in which Charles Darst, a young farmer living near Chilhowee, was shot and instantly killed by James Riley, the night watchman of that city.
Darst had spent most of the day filling up on bad liquor and was arrested in the evening for disturbing the peace and locked up.
Sometime afterwards Riley arrested two other men who were taken to the hold-over. The moment Marshal Riley opened the door to put the other fellows in, Darst bounded out flourishing a deadly knife and proceeded to make things very lively for the policeman and his prisoners. It is reported that Darst attempted to use his knife on Riley, who shot him in self defense. He was shot twice.

BANDIT LEADER WAS RESPECTED CITIZEN

Joplin, Sept 18.---How George Brown, alias Thomas Brown, lived as a respected businessman in the center of Joplin while heading a large band of alleged bandits and nearly gained entrance to the Masonic Lodge here, has been revealed by his arrest in Kansas City.
Brown, who is about 35 years old, for many months conducted the Keystone battery service at Fourth street and Virginia avenue, continuing the business until about a month ago. He gained a large circle of friends among businessmen, some of whom twice nominated him for membership in the Masonic Lodge.

RICH MISSOURIAN KILLS WOMAN

Fred J McFadden, wealthy citizen of Knox City, Mo., shot and killed Mrs. Ethel Lagendyk in the Clifton hotel at Grand Rapids, Mich. The shooting was apparently the result of a quarrel following a love affair.
Shortly after the shooting a letter from McFadden, addressed to Mrs. Lagendyk at Knox City arrived at the hotel.
In it McFadden hinted he would kill himself and added, " You can think of it the rest of your days, that you caused my death."
It appears McFadden came on the same train that brought his letter. Mrs. Lagendyk's husband lives here. She had been estranged from him two years. McFadden is survived by a wife and four children in Knox City. He and the Lagendyk woman lived together in Alberta, Canada, for some time. McFadden was sought by draft officials. He was 29 years old.
