• Jean VanderWonde, housekeeper for C.W. Casey on U.S. 10 near Idlewild, was sentenced Saturday by Judge Raymond in federal court to serve six months in the Allegan jail for violation of the liquor law. She entered a plea of guilty together with more than twenty others taken in the federal dragnet the last few months. Jean VanderWonde was arrested two months ago when federal men raided the Casey lunchroom following an alleged “buy.” Mr. Casey also was summoned to Grand Rapids but no charge against him was noted at the time of sentencing . . . It was stated that a nuisance charge was to be preferred against the place as a basis for a padlock order.
