“Tell police what you know.” Lock it up!” “Don’t put key in mailbox.” m iHnMMBHHBnniBBIIl s is . ^Iwll “Don’t let a stranger in.” In a stepped up campaign against crime in Wilming ton, local police officials have made public a series of luggestions for citizens, which they feel will aid in halting lawlessness. In the first picture above A. F. Lee, 509 Market street tells Lt. Jack Moore, head of the traffic division, important details of a police case. Next, Sgt. J- T. Hick, of the detective force demonstrates a good plan for automobile owners . . . that of locking a car when parking. Third. Mrs. N. J. Jackson, 513 Market street demonstrates what not to do when leaving home for a few days. Don’t, police suggest, put your key in the mailbox or under a door mat; it makes it too easy for house-breakers to gain entrance. In the last picture, Mrs. Jackson believes in the police suggestion of not letting strangers into her home. In this case the “stranger” is Capt. L. A. Teague. (Staff Photos.) By BOB KLINE Staff Writer Foflcxing the theory endorsed hy the Federal Bureau of Investi fdion that “criminals will go ®ly as far as their victims will k' them.” Police Chief Hubert feyes yesterday inaugurated a campaign of: “Don’t Give a kook an Even Break.” First of all, the Wilmington po «e department urges cooperation J® tbe citizens. Police officers •ere seen crime all of their pro iessional lives, and they know "" criminals operate. Their ad !lce is friendly advice. Their aim is to prevent crime, and they o! ^ow can be done, vie important tip they give is ™ telephone immediately when a •“specious person is seen around f home or business. They say, don t wait to make your own in and don’t turn on ad ditional lights. In a low voice, tell the telephone operator: “I want the police.” Then Chief Hayes says, give the facts, “where you are, what has happened, and when.” Also a de scription of any suspects they ask be relayed. Wilmington police cars patrol the city 24 houre a day, and messages can be relayed to the officers in the car= in a matter of seconds. If an intended victim acts calmly and quickly, the police have a good chance of picking up the prowler before he leaves the neighborhood. When leaving home for an eve ning, the police advise not to leave the house key in the mail box, under the mat or over the door. And don’t leave a note say ing when you expect to be home, and don’t pull down window shades. And be sure to lock all windows and doors._In other WE ARE BONDEX DEALERS ATLANTIC PAINT & VARNISH CO. 615 S. 17th. St. Dial 4576 GREGG BROS. Distributors Of B O N D E X 110 MARKET ST.

Front St. Gregg Brothers 102-110 Market St. | words, the police department asks that criminals be hindered, not helped, as much as possible. The police have definite tips on what to do when leaving for a vacation of several days or more. “Tell the milkman, mailman and newspaper boy to stop deliv ering. Ask a neighbor to remove advertising from your front porch. Leave a key with a friend in case of fire. Don't hide money or valu able under rugs, behind pictures, in crockery or in mattresses. And inform the police that your house will be vacant.” Housewives have long been the special victims of “magazine salesmen” or “metermen". Chief Hayes advises women to never al low an unidentified man to enter the house.; “Make them transact their business in the hallway or on the porch unless you know them.” Police files are full of cases in which housewives have been criminally attacked and robbed by so-called “solicitors.” Lt. Jack Moore, head of the traffic division of the police de partment, declared, in his part of the campaign against crooks, that: “Cars are stolen In most major crimes, so keep your car locked and roll up all windows when it’s not in use. Have a secret mark ing on your car so it can be iden tified if it is stolen and the serial numbers altered.” Most all of the police depart ment needs the cooperation of the people it protects. Chief Hayes asks citizens not to be offended if a police officer questions them. “You have nothing to fear from the policeman. He is trying to protect you,” he advised.

SCIENCE AIDS DIAMOND TRADE New Polishing System Re ported By Kingoffs Yesterday A revolutionary new process produces 100 per cent fully polish ed diamonds from as small as 5 point sizes, at no extra cost over ordinary diamonds. Most diamonds are cut with 58 facets, top and bottom. How ever, the side edge, or “girdle” as it is known to the jewelry trade, is usually left rough and unpolished. In Prism-Lite Dia monds, a registered name of diamond rings produced-by this process, the girdle is completely polished. This produces increased radiance. The resultant glow from this greater brilliance creates an aura of light which gives a defi nite illusion of greater size to the diamond. An additional advantage gained by Prism-Lite “100 per cent Fully Polished” Diamond Rings is the almost complete protection it af fords against the common hazard of chipping. When a diamond’s girdle is left rough, as in ordinary stones, there is a definite predis position toward costly, wasteful chipping. This may occur either before, during or after the dia mond is mounted. Diamond polishing is a highly skilled operation and is, there fore, understandably expensive. The additional time and labor involved in creating fully polisned diamonds by ordinary methods in creased the cost greatly. The new revolutionary process has elimi nated extra, costly labor and weight loss in creating 100 per cent Fully Polished Diamonds. Prism-Lite 100 per cent Fully Polished Diamond Rings are fea tured by Kingoffs, popular jeweler of this city.

Dial 2-3311 For Newspaper Service' Miami Expects $1 Return On Everylc Spent On Ads By NEA SERVICE MIAM, (NEA). — Greater Mi ami expects to get back about one dollar for every penny of the $2, 250,000 it will invest this fall and winter — mostly in newspaper and magazine advertising. Last winter tourists spent more than $220 millions in Miami and Miami Beach. This year money is plentiful; coal and oil for heating northerly homes are expected to be short and higher priced; rail roads and airlines are offering more, better and faster service; highway connections have been improved: and there are avail able 7,500 new apartment units, 500 more hotel rooms and hun dreds of rooms in new private homes added since the last Flor ida season. These things, coupled with an imposing convention calendar and an attractive program of tradi tional and special sports events, are counted upon to make this year’s business even greater than last. Greater Miami’s optimism is confirmed by the response it has had to more limited expenditures for advertising up to now. The $65,000 summer campaign was so successful that 200 resort hotels, instead of closing for the warm season as they ued to do, operated at near capacity. The State’ $250,000 spent most ly in newspaper and magazine ads last year brought 119.000 clipped coupons, and a lot of these are expected to bring tourists who will spend all or part of their time in Miami. For advertising, Miami and Miami Beach have budgeted $400,000. The State is spending another $250,000. Travel and transportation agencies are spend ing large sums not included in these figures. The area’s 512 hotels will spend from $500 to as much a3 $30,000 each for newspaper and magazine advertising, a total of at least $1,800,000. n return, on the basis of studies made recently by O. P. Hart of the Miami Research Bu reau, visitors are expected to spend $66,000,000 on housing this year. Greater Miami’s 2400 eating places expect to take in another $64,000,000. Hart figures visi’ors will spend $22,000,000 for amuse ments and the same amount shop ping. Service trades will get $18, 00.000; $18,000,000 will be spent for personal services, and $11,000, 000 for gas and oil. To give its winter visitors something new to see, Miami will open the new Rickenbacker Causeway to Virginia Key, at the mouth of Biscayne Bay, and the new $6,00,000 Crandon Park in November.
