Several persons were placed under arrest by State Police on charges of violating the liquor laws and conducting fambling houses, it is understood that three of the persons caught in the raid have posted bail for the June term of Criminal Court at Ebensburg.

Efforts to obtain complete information regarding the raids made by the State Police were futile today, owing to telephone communication to Nant-y-Glo and also to the Greensburg barracks being out of transmission as a result of last night's heavy fall of snow.
