City parking meter removed from standard

Another parking meter has been stolen in Norwalk. Local police have discovered that a meter on S. Linwood near Seminary St. has been removed from its standard. A similar theft occurred on East Main St. near Prospect St.

The far-fetched theory is advanced that perhaps the meter was stolen by saboteurs in order to obtain a clock to time a bomb. It is a fact however that the clocks are well made and would serve for such a purpose. There hardly could be enough money in a local parking meter to justify running the risk of prosecution, police report.

Food stores discontinue one morning delivery

The following grocery stores and meat markets: Veitch's, Lieber's and Modern Market, because of conditions beyond their control, such as tire and gasoline rationing and help shortage, find it necessary to discontinue one of their two morning deliveries. Until further notice their delivery schedule will be as follows: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Will supplant house consumed by flames

It is announced that Frank Neuberger, whose dwelling house near Enterprise was destroyed by fire recently, will erect a new residence. The Neuberger family is grateful for the helpful cooperation of the neighbors during the fire and later.
