A Busy Fourth
Independence Day has passed as a nightmare for firemen. This year it’s reported not a single life was lost as direct result of fireworks although there were many casualties. Traffic and other accidents, however, more than made up, causing hundreds of fatalities.
In Elizabeth (N. J.) police hadda make house-to-house search for four aerial bombs stolen from a fireworks tent. Each bomb contained 3 ounces of dynamite.
In Providence (R. I.) it cost Win. Kiertnan five days in jail to get a light for his cigarette. He sounded an alarm and asked Batt. Chief Charles Dwyer for a match!
