The~ clause "'in any puiblic road or

there was a fusillade of fire arms dur

n one case a person walking on~the

from a gun fired not "in a public
'uad or street," but just off the street
in an ad.jacent lot. Has not the time
arrived when the above ordinance
should be amended by the striking
out of the words "in any public road
or street?7" Newberry is nio longer
