An unknown person attempted to cash a forged check drawn on the Central Ave. plumbing business of Martin Jacobson. The person, pretending to be a busy workman, sent a passing child, John Iliff, age 13, to the bank with the check, requesting Iliff to return with a reply. The bank clerk delayed a reply because of the unusual nature of the request. When John Iliff returned the person was gone. Iliff is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Iliff, 924 Linden ave. Similar crimes in Highland Park (successful) and Evanston (unsuccessful)
