Lansdowne Avenue


LANSDOWNE AVENUE was laid out when Parkside was developed, running from Haddon Avenue in a northerly direction to Ormond Avenue. During the 1910s Lemon Street, which ran from Haddon Avenue opposite Lansdowne to South 3rd Street, was renamed Lansdowne Avenue as well. Lansdowne Avenue is interrupted in two places by railroad tracks and in more recent times by the exansion of West Jersey Hospital.

COURT FREES GIRL WHO DRANK POISON

Pleading guilty to attempting to end her life by drinking poison, Sarah Turner, 17, of 338 Lansdowne Avenue, was given suspended sentence by Police Judge Pancoast yesterday.

The girl was arrested after she was treated at Cooper Hospital. She told Detective Ben Simon she drank the poison because she was jealous of her sister. William Harrity, 24, of 409 Senate Street, Sarah's sweetheart, was held as a material witness but was released today when he said he knew nothing of the quarrel between the sisters.

According to Patrolmen George Kelley and Robert Jones, he did his weaving around the police car on their right instead of the left, and then weaved in front of the police car and passed another motorist on his left. The weaving was done, they testified, just as the traffic light changed at Crescent boulevard and Cove road. Evans was fined $10.

Alvin Groendyke, 24, of 413 Stockton street, Hightstown, was fined $10 for speeding.

FLORIST SHOP RAID TRAPS NUMBERS MEN
Police Believe Hunt for Racket Headquarters Ended;
4 Are Arrested

A three-month search for "number's" headquarters in Camden was believed ended today when detectives raided a florist shop at 1409 Mt. Ephraim avenue, seized seven adding machines, thousands of dollars worth of sales slips and arrested four men. 

Joseph Klosterman, 34, of 1413 Mt. Ephraim Avenue, whom the police believe operated the "bank," was included in a quartet arrested by a squad under command of Sergeant of Detectives Louis Shaw

Responding to an anonymous tip that the numbers men were gathered in a rear room of the store, Shaw, together with Detectives Clarence Arthur, George Zeitz and John Kaighn, surrounded the place.

The others arrested in the raid gave their names as Charles Selanski, 23, of 1286 Sheridan Street; Leon Babrowski, 22, of 1209 Lansdowne Avenue, and Frank Gromacki, 27, of 1411 Mt. Ephraim Avenue. Several "pickup men," who have been arrested while carrying money and numbers slips, according to Shaw, were linked with the ring. The principals, however, had managed to escape detection. 

The flower shop, Shaw said, is operated by Joseph Haleski, and was used as a "blind" for the lottery racket.

Klosterman was released last night in $1000 bail for a hearing today on a charge of operating a numbers lottery. The others were all released in $100 cash security as material witnesses..

EMPLOYEE ACCUSED OF THREAT TO KILL 
Foreman Charges Worker Brandished Knife
in Attempt to Prevent Layoff 

A man who allegedly tried to keep his job at the point of a 14inch knife was held in $2500 bail for the Grand Jury yesterday on a charge of threaten- ing to kill. He is Fulgienty Biebinski, 46, of 1235 Lansdowne Avenue, for 15 years an employee of the McNeely Leather Company, 72 Erie Street

Joseph Dworanczyk, 1014 Kaighn Avenue, a foreman in the plant, testified that on Monday he received orders to layoff a number of employees. Among them was Biebinski, whose sight is so poor, he had to be assisted to the prisoner's box by Police Court attaches. 

The next day, Dworanczyk continued, Biebinski accosted him in the locker room with a long knife used to trim leather and demanded that he be rehired.

Two employees, Sigmund Oleswewicz, 1418 South Tenth street, and Jospeh Sagan, 2142 Orkney Street, Philadelphia, testified they saw Biebinski threaten Dworanczyk with the weapon. 
Biebinski said that he really meant no harm to
Dworanczyk but wanted to frighten him into giving his job back.

Judge Mariano said he sympathized with Biebinski but could not condone his methods and held him for the Grand Jury.

3 WITH GUNS GET $80 IN BROADWAY HOLDUP

Three men, two of them wearing handkerchiefs over their faces, held up a gasoline station attendant at Broadway and Lansdowne Avenue yesterday and escaped with $80, according to detectives.

The police said the men entered the place at 2 a.m. and pointed guns at Robert Horner, 17, of 107 Penn street. The man who did not have his face covered tried to hide his identity by holding his handkerchief to his face.

Horner told Detective Sergeant Gus Koerner two of the men were in their shirt sleeves while the third wore a tan coat. William Risley, of 1380 Lansdowne Avenue, watchman at a nearby bag factory, said he saw the men "acting suspiciously" in the neighborhood and telephoned police headquarters.
