Youth Held for FBI Officials
February 26, 1946

Richard Langley, 19, who came here two weeks ago from Hayward, Calif., is being held for the FBI.

Officers state that Tuesday night, E. Homer Edgecomb, principal of the elementary schools, returned to his office in the McKinley building to find Langley in the place.

Nothing had been taken and according to Chief of Police W. O. Long, Langley said he had entered the school out of “curiosity as much as anything else.”

Upon investigation, it was found that Langley had never registered for the selective service and is being held on that basis for the federal agents, it is reported.
