Henry: SUMMER VISITOR AT RYE BEACH CAUSES ALARM
Henry Johnson of Indianapolis,Ind., summer resident of Rye Beach, was the cause of the latest 'Dillinger case' yesterday.

Police were breathing more easily last night after his identity and reputation had been established.

Police attention had been called to Johnson's car, bearing Indiana plates, which was parked at Beach street and Harrison Avenue, Boston, Mass., yesterday, having in it a 38-calibre automatic pistol, 12 clips of shells and 50 cartridges for a 45-calibre automatic pistol.

The officers immediately conjured up visions of Dillinger and his gang being there for taking possession of the funds of Boston's leading banks with consequent gun-play and bloodshed.

They took the gun and ammunition, leaving several officers to watch the car.

A short time later Mr. Johnson arrived at the car with his mother and a young lady. He explained that he had gone to the South station to meet them and was on his way to their summer home at Rye Beach.

Mr. Johnson produced an interstate revolver license and papers to show that he is a crack shot and a member of the National Rifle Association.
