Dismissed the Congregation

Airship Goose Hunter Arrested

WIMBLEDON, Oct. 20—Something new in North Dakota court annals and probably the first instance of the kind in the United States, is the arrest and fining in Wimbledon of Vernon L. Roberts, Fargo aviator, for shooting at wild geese from his aeroplane.

Somehow the chase was noticed by Deputy Game Warden Grulke, a farmer, residing a few miles southwest of Wimbledon. He came to town after the airplane had landed and arrested Aviator Roberts on the specific charge of shooting wild game from a moving vehicle. The defendant pleaded guilty and was fined $30.
