The Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock, AR, 11/25/81

Monday, February 1, 1982

A quintet of robbers made a big mistake when they decided to heist the table stakes from a poker game being held by nine duck hunters in Ethel, Ark. When one criminal began to break down the front door and loosed a shotgun blast, George Rowland, 70, a retired game warden, responded with a .38 slug that killed him. One of the poker players described the game's pots as $5 and up..."nothing big."
