Camden Soldier Credited With Saving Child’s Life in Germany

PFC Allen Rudderow, 920 North Twenty-eighth Street, is credited with saving the life of a two-year old Yugoslav child recently when he observed smoke pouring from. a house in Pudolstadt, Germany, where a group of displaced persons had been quartered.

Rudderow, barred by fire from entrances to the house, climbed to the roof of an adjacent building and swung across to the burning dwelling. Seizing the child from a smoke-filled room he passed the baby across the area between the buildings to a waiting soldier.

TWO MEN ARRESTED AFTER AUTO CRASH
Threat to Kill Alleged Against One;
Driver of Second Car Makes Complaint

 Basil P. Cook, 44, of 449 North Fifth Street, was arrested on charges of assault and battery and threat to kill, and James Fenton, 32, of 834 North Sixth street, was held for reckless driving and disorderly conduct last night on complaint of C. N. Morrow, of 7 North Twenty-eighth Street, following an automobile accident. They will be arraigned in police court today.

Cook and Fenton were booked as "drunk" by Sergeant Stiles Whittaker, though Morrow declined to press such charges against them. Fenton was released later on $40 security.

Morrow was driving west on Federal Street and Fenton, in whose car Cook was passenger, was proceeding east. Fenton's car turned left into Leonard Avenue. Morrow charged that Fenton then backed into Morrow's car.

Morrow got out of his car and an argument ensued. Morrow is alleged to have accused Cook and Fenton of being drunk When Morrow went into a nearby store to telephone for police, Cook is alleged to have followed him, grabbed him by the throat and threatened to kill him. Morrow then struck Cook and broke his hold.

When the Third district police patrol arrived, Cook was standing in the street. He was arrested by Patrolman Elwood Humphreys. Fenton ran into the store and refused to leave. He was dragged from the place by Patrolman Joseph Shreeves.

Grocery

28th and Mickle were my Grandparents. In the late 1940s my grandfather worked for the owner of the store and lived in the middle of the block. Later he bought the store. He was awarded Breyer's bonus for selling the most loose ice cream. They actually placed freezers for him in the basement at their cost to sell more. He would stay open until the last person was served. 10 cents a dip. They had nasty names for him like "bug foot Charlie" and "Thumb Print Charlie" from attempting to keep the ice cream on the cone. For a pint you got a gallon and for a dine you got almost a pint on a cone. Even on Christmas he felt obligated to keep the store open for the neighbors. My grandmother came over for a couple of hours and then my grandfather came over to keep the store open. He sold the store and the new owner change to another brand, raise comes to 15 cents and lost the store. 

I remember my dad (Charles Kocher Jr.) laying new asphalt tiles along the candy cases from the long line. Soda was in water and you had to know your caps! When it was time for me to attend middle school, the Board of Education moved Junior High classes to Davis for me. I had been looking forward to eating lunch at my Pops. 

He moved to Hillside Avenue in later years and kept all of Saint Joe's carnival equipment in his garage and that paid his yearly taxes. Quite a business man! My dad was a police lieutenant and decided not to buy the store.
