Onslow Coroner Thinks
Drowning Was Cause Of
Miss Stroud’s Death
JACKSONVILLE, July 18—Coron
er Timmons Jones said today he i£
now inclined to believe that Miss
Mary Stroud, 20-year-old Kenans
ville and Kinston woman, died Tues
day as result of drowning at Brown's
Inlet, caused by a strong undertow
that knocked her down in the water
against some hard object that ren
dered her unconscious. Death was
first attributed to a heart attack.
The coroner said the young wom
an had a bad bruise on the left side
of the face, and comparatively little
w'ater in her lungs, however, enough
to cause drowning. He speculated
that she might have escaped drown
ing had not she sustained the blow
on the face.

Traffic Law Recommendations
Are Submitted To City Board
In the volume containing the re
codified city ordinances presented
yesterday to the city clerk and trea
surer by Bill Newell, of the North
Carolina League of Municipalities,
recommendations are made for
remedying the present confusion re
garding stop signs and stop streets.
The league recommended as fol
That Market street from Water to
city limits. Third street from Nixon
to Greenfield and Orange street from
Front to Wrightsville avenue be
designated as through stop streets.
That other stop streets be de
signated as follow:
Red Cross, when approaching
North Fifth east or west.
North Fourth when approaching
Chestnut east or west.
Castle street when approaching
Seventeenth east or west.
Orange street when approaching
Seventeenth east or west.
The league further recommended
that all stop streets be plainly mark
ed by signs. Its recommendations
were based upon a uniform traffic
law recently approved by Attorney
General Harry McMullen.
The ordinances have not yet been
considered or adopted by the city
The work of recodifying the ordi
nances, which was done by the
WPA under a project sponsored by
the league, has been under way for
many months. Workers listed in
the re-codified ordinances all private
law's which have been passed relat
ing to Wilmington which are still
Obsolete ordinances which had
been repealed by more recent ordi
nances were removed from the book
and all ordinances relating to any
one subject are now grouped and
indexed under one head.
For example all traffic ordinances
can now be found under one head.
The ordinance on parking, for ex
ample, is carried under the same
head as the ordinances on stop
streets and speed limits.
Some changes which have been
recommended by the league are also
included in the new book.
Before the ordinances, as put into
shape by the league, become effec
tive, they must be reviewed by the
city commissioners and ratified,
after the ordinances as they now
stand are repealed.
Though repealed ordinances were
removed from the new book, there
are still a number of obsolete ordi
nances which, never having been
repealed, are still operative, which
the commissioners are expected to
repeal before adopting the newly re
codified book of ordinances.
