MANY FOOLED AND NEW SALEM MAN SAVES $22
"April fool" was worth $22 to a New Salem man.
He reported to local police that he had lost his pocketbook. A search was started. The man retraced his visits in the city yesterday, and on a writing table in the postoffice he found his pocketbook containing $22.
"Everybody must have thought it was an April fool joke and wouldn't pick it up," remarked a policeman.
They did not learn the man's name.
