Two girls frighten away burglars

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Record on Thursday, August 14, 1919.

Last Friday night while Mr. and Mrs. Luis Kuhl, of Superior Township, were attending the Redpath Chautauqua in this city, two men tried to break into the house, but were frightened away by the determined efforts of two daughters who were left at home. The men were discovered by the girls trying to gain an entrance through the cellar, but concluded that they were up against the real thing, as they evidently did not expect to have to dodge bullets. As soon as the girls saw them they sent in a hurry-up call to Miller’s taxi service with instructions to go to the Chautauqua and call Mr. Kuhl and get out there as soon as possible, and then grabbed the gun and fired a few shots, which aroused the neighbors, but on their arrival the burglars had flown.
