Mt. Ephraim Avenue


Mt. Ephraim Avenue goes back as far as 1878, when it was a toll road called the Mount Ephraim Turnpike. Originally beginning at the intersection of Line Street and Haddon Avenue, at some point between 1929 and 1946 Starr Avenue was renamed, resulting in a second section of Mount Ephraim Avenue running parallel to Newton Avenue and extending out to Admiral Wilson Boulevard, along the west side of the old Sears-Roebuck building.

Do you have an Mt. Ephraim Avenue memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

George Dunkle, aged 3 years of 913 Mt. Ephraim Avenue, was attacked and badly bitten on the face by a pet fox terrier yesterday. Considered a pet, the dog had just been teased by an older member of the family when the child tried to pick it up. Then it was that it turned on George, badly tearing his face. The wound was cauterized by Dr. Miller, of Eight & Mt. Vernon Streets.

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

A three-month search for "number's" head- quarters 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 ArthurGeorge 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..

During the afternoon two raids were staged by Sergeant John Gilbert and Policemen Warner and Branch resulting in the arrest of two men and seizure of a still and a small quantity of alleged liquor.

At the home of Stanley Saposki, 46, of 1066 Thurman Street, the raiders said they found a 25-gallon still, three gallons of “moonshine” and a complete set of coils. Saposki was arrested and later released under $500 bail.

Only a half-gallon of alleged liquor was found in the home of Frank Beuclawski, 60, of 1422 Mount Ephraim Avenue, who likewise was arrested, then released under $5000 bail.

This is a picture of my grandparent's store when they first bought it - circa late 1920s - 1524 Mt. Ephraim Avenue. My grand- parents were Jacob and Anna Dyl, who emigrated here from Poland. The store was later owned by my parents, Edmund and Jennie Dyl Ruchalski. Some of the items sold in our store were cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, pipes, candy, soda, ice cream, newspapers. I grew up in this house. The Liberty Theater was on the next block, and the kids would
stop in our store to buy penny candy on their way to the movies on Saturday afternoons. The store was later owned by my parents, Edmund & Jennie Dyl Ruchalski.

Squad 7 arrived with smoke showing and went in to operation with a 1 3/4" hand line. Battalion 1 arrived reported a 2 story middle of the row taxpayer with smoke from the 2nd floor striking the all hands. A water supply was secured as 2 1 3/4" hand lines were placed in operation. Crews reported poor building conditions due to a prior fire which burned out the first floor. Searches were negative as the fire was placed under control.

Camden Residents Warned of Fumes

(AP) State environmental officials were taking air samples in the aftermath of a fire that leveled a large lawn and garden center here, according to police and fire authorities.

Officials warned residents to remain indoors because of fears about possible toxic fumes from the fire at Gaudio's, a longtime city establishment.

''We were mostly concerned about the fertilizer in there and the chlorine they sell for swimming pools,'' Fire Chief Theodore Primas said. ''We just didn't know what level of toxicity there was,'' he said.
