nounced that no agreement could be

As usual the tow^ went wild 'Wednesday
afternoon when the fire alarm j
was sounded. It is said that the street f
where the fire was, was soon blocked
with automobiles making it difficult j
for the firemen to reach the fire. In
order to safe-guard lives and property
it seems imperative for 'council
to pass a traffic ordinance that will
remedy this evil. In a highly intelligent
pftmmunitv like Newberry
there ought to be enough of self re-1
straint in such emergencies to make j
legal restraint unnecessary, but be-!
fore somebody, is killed or perhaps
maimed for life it would be wise to
pass the law and enforce it.
