...It tells in hardly more than two thousand words of the careful plan that grocery clerk John Hogan hatches to rob the local bank in an industrial community during Labor Day weekend, 1955. While Hogan perfects his plan, his children John and Joan enter the W. R. Hearst "I Love America” essay contest. Saturday morning Hogan quickly and quietly carries out his scheme and successfully steals eight thousand three hundred and twenty dollars, which he hides—ironically—in the leather case that holds his Knight Templar's uniform. From the loot, he extracts for immediate use only two five-dollar bills, which he gives to his son, who has won “honorable mention” in the Hearst contest, and his daughter, for being a “good sport” when she did not win.
