Lions Will Plan Program
To Halt Vandalism Here Recreation For Youths To Be Discussed At Meet ing On Thursday The Wilmington Lions club at its meeting Thursday, will en deavor to formulate a program to create diversion or entertainment that may halt the vandalism youths are reportedly perpetrating on Market street, between Seven teenth street and Burnt Mill creek. A spokesman for the club said yesterday it does not “have the slightest idea of engaging in police or detective work,” but rather it planned to arrange a program that would prevent the youths from perpetrating any further pranks, or at least cut down on the vandalism. Officials of the Lions pointed out that visitors to the city depend on signs for guiding them to places of interest. They said that the metal signs placed at Burnt Mill creek and Market street, announc ing the time and place for the regular meetings of the club, have been torn down on several oc casions. The club was instrumental in having a shelter installed at Sev enteenth and Market streets, to accommodate soldiers and Ma rines while they waited for rides to Camps Davis and Lejeune. This shelter, it was pointed out, was turned over so often by pranksters and finally damaged so badly that it had to be removed. The sign directing motorists at Seventeenth and Market to Blue thenthal airport has also been torn down and thrown away by some body. Other instances involving van dalism have been reported from time to time, one complainant re porting that somebody slashed the front seat cover of his automobile while it was parked in the Big Star parking lot on North Third j street. nuiii'-’i mt’s a i io addition to the wave of vandal- , ism. there is also considerable petty crime. The Police depart ment gave w.-rning yesterday to shoppers to be on the alert for pirnse and grocery snatchers. Two shoppers in a Third street Super market yesterday reported that they had been robbed of their purchases. Mrs. L. J. Mills, 104 North Monroe street. Sunset Park, reported that she had purchased $6 worth of foodstuffs, stolen from her before she left the store. B. C. Willie ms, 624 Dock street, re ported a similar experience in volving $5 worth of groceries. F;fty dollars in money were stolen when the billfold of M. M.
