BURGLAR GETS NOTHING, LEAVES FINGERPRINTS

Mrs. Marion Miller, of 257 Mount Vernon Street, reported to police today that a burglar broke into her home Wednesday and ransacked the second and third floors. The intruder was frightened away without any loot.

Detective Frank Crawford found that entrance had been gained by taking a pane of glass out of a side window. Crawford said that he had obtained fingerprints.

George Stinsman, of 14 York Street, reported that someone had broke into his home and stolen a washing machine valued at $59.

BOYS ON ROOF ACCUSED OF PLOT TO ROB STORE

Two 15-year-old boys were arrested last night on charges of breaking and entering and attempted larceny. 

The boys, Fred Powell, of 1025 Carpenter Street, and John McCloskey, of 33 North Twenty-fifth street, were arrested by Policeman Everett Joslin and John Taylor on the roof of a shanty in the abandoned Humphrey Lumber yard, Point and Pearl Street, which is occupied by William L. Rice, of 206 York Street, as an ice cream and candy store. The boys had broken off a section of the roof and were about to enter the store, the police said. They will be arraigned today.

Through letters, VJ mail and a diary my father keep during the war, we know that these York Street boys met up often to share "liberty" days during the war. They remained friends even when Scwartz retired to San Diego until my dad's passing October, 1996. The guy with the hat in his hand, all we know is that they called him "Mick".

2 BROTHERS AND PAL GET ROBBERY TERMS
Implicated in Series of Gas Station Thefts; Leniency Pleas Fails

Two Camden brothers and a pal they implicated in a series of gasoline station robberies over a four month period were sentenced to prison yesterday by Judge Baldwin in Criminal Court.

Despite pleas for leniency on grounds that they are the fathers of small children, Howard Jones, 32, of 419 Haddon Avenue, and his brother, Edward, 43, of 537 York Street, were sentenced to two to five years and one and a half years, respectively.

Frederick Hammell, 33, of Linden Avenue, Woodlynne, whom they implicated in their confession to Merchantville police last December, was sentenced to four to seven years. When Hammell has finished his term in New Jersey he will be returned to Pennsylvania, where he is charged with breaking his parole,

Alertness of a Merchantville policeman, Herbert A. Davidson, Jr., and Special Officer Harry Collins, attached to the Merchantville department, resulted in the first arrest. With the aid of Police Chief William Linderman, they "broke" the bandit trio.

One of the alleged "jobs" with which the three were connected was the spectacular kidnapping of four gasoline station attendants and a taxi driver last September 17. The attendants were robbed at gunpoint and then forced into the taxicab from which they witnessed addition al holdups.

Later more than a dozen other holdup victims identified the three as the men who held them up.

Chief Thorpe maintained that Hammell was the "brains" of the group. He declared that at least 16 holdups had been definitely linked to the three men.

It was brought out in testimony after the three entered a plea of non vult that Howard Jones is the father of a three-weeks-old baby and six other children. Edward, it was shown, is the father of three children. The wives of Edward and Howard were in court to bolster the leniency pleas.

"It was the lure of easy money that beckoned these men on," said Judge Baldwin in pronouncing sentence.

Camden's "Jersey City" Schools 

To the Editor:
        Sir—In your publication there appeared a number of pictures of terrible slum conditions in Jersey City.

Among the pictures was a Jersey City school with (horrors) outside plumbing. I hold no briefs either personally or politically for Mayor Hague, but why don't you try to be fair. It is a terrible thing in these days of modern conveniences that children in school are compelled to use outside toilets. God alone knows how many poor little children have contracted colds (or worse) in going from a warm school room out into the cold. 

But it isn't necessary to go all the way to Jersey City to rid such conditions. The Read School at Fifth and York streets in Camden has outside plumbing, and I for one think that it's criminal for children to be compelled to use toilets, that can and are being used by any vagrant or other person who feels so inclined. 

In closing please allow me to say if you want to sponsor or advocate inside toilets for school children forget about Jersey City and distant points. Start in Camden. I didn't see in any of those photographs any slum conditions that couldn't be duplicated here. People who live in glass houses, etc.

Camden Courier-Post - July 8, 1950
Boy Sees Accident, Asks Traffic Light
by WILBUR MORSE JR.

Petitions for highway safety measures or improvements usually come from adult individuals or organizations.

But there Is an 11-yearold North Camden boy whose horror at seeing a car drag a 4-yearold neighbor 40 feet. near an unlighted intersection, today spurred a one-man safety campaign that carried a bigger wallop than the table thumping of many of his elders.

Into the Courier-Post editorial rooms came William McQuade, 11, of 47 York Street; his dark brow furrowed with a serious frown.

"I want to see the editor of the Mail Bag" said William with the assurance that a sincere crusade brings.

'Tragic Scene'

When queried as to the aim of his visit, William pulled out of the pocket of his denim trousers a wrinkled and many times folded piece of ruled paper.

In pencil he had written:

'The tragic scene I saw July 6. makes me believe that some traffic improvements should be made on Front and State Street and Front and York Street, so that many people or kids will not be in danger from cars."

"At 4:00 PM when work is out, cars speed up to Front and State Streets. I personally think that some zones and traffic lights should be put up there on State and York Street. Would you find room for this letter, please?"

William McQuade wasn't speaking just for himself, he explained, after an editor had read his letter and praised his purposefulness.

"There are a lot of us kids who are in danger from the cars that speed along Front street, as work lets out at the two shipyards and the leather plant in the neighborhood."

"They all seem to be trying to get home first."

"I'll never forget the sight of that accident Thursday when the cars were streaming from the yards."

Young McQuade, a seventh grader at the Cooper school was referring to the misfortune that befell his neighbor, Dennis Taggart, 4, of 935 Point Street, who was struck by a car while playing near the Intersection of Front and State.

Could Be Avoided

"If there had been a light to slow the cars down at that corner, that accident never would have happened," William insisted.

Dennis, his skull fractured, is still in a critical condition at Cooper Hospital.

With his nephew Marvin McQuade, 8, of 707 North Sixth Street. son of his older half-brother, William brought his plea for safety measures to the Courier, because, he said: "Your paper always is trying to help people".

William, Marvin and another playmate, pretty, blonde Catherine Wilczynski, 10, of 929 Point Street, who also had seen Dennis injured, later stood at the comer of Front and State and pointed to the comers where they believed stop signs or traffic lights should be erected.

"It wouldn't cost much to put up a light here, where it's so badly needed," urged William.

"Why. I bet it wouldn't cost as much as the hospital bills and doctor bills for Dennis Taggart. And he's just one boy who's been hurt. There have been others."

"We kids rate a break."
