COIN BOX THEFT
QUIZ FACES PAIN
New Yorkers Nabbed After
Chase Along Rock
ville Pike.
By a Staff Correspondent of The Star.
ROCKVILLE, Md„ May 12.—Efforts
to link two men captured after a chase
along the Rockville pike with a series
of telephone pay station coin box
robberies in the vicinity of Washing
ton and Baltimore were being made
today by Montgomery County police.
Booked as Ted Kramer, 37, and
Samuel Morrison, 36, both of New
York, the men are being held in the
county jail for investigation. Photo
graphs and finger prints have been for
warded to several police departments
to determine whether they are wanted
in other cities.
Heard Man Pry Box.
The pair was arrested yesterday
after several high school students
seated at a table in a store here heard
a man pry the coin box from a booth
telephone. They notified the proprie
tor and police were called.
Policeman James Burdette and Con
stable Leslie Thompson gave chase in
a police car and found two men driving
south on the Rockville pike in a car
bearing New York tags.
Caught in Blind Alley.
Their quarry wheeled and headed
back toward Rockville, but they were
caught when they drove into a blind
alley near the ice plant here.
Telephone officials who came over
from Baltimore declared that numerous
coin box robberies have been reported
throughout this section of th? country
and .the men are to be questioned to
determine whether they are implicated
in other thefts.
COUNTY FUNCTIONS
HELD DUE FOR SHIFT
— " — — 1 ~
Trend From Local Self-Govern
ment Visualized by Brook
ings Institution.
! E> the Associated Press.
Extinction of counties as political
subdivisions of States and a trend
away from local self-government is
visualized by the Brookings Institution
unless there is a reallocation of State
and county functions.
Dr. Arthur C. Millspaugh, reporting
on a study of local democracy and
crime control, said so far as major
services were concerned, counties were
tending to become merely areas in
which agents of State departments
operated.
He said a reallocation of State and
county functions must be made if
counties are to continue to act freely
as self-governing units. County func
tions, he said, should be of a purely
local nature.
Dr. Millspaugh said the county man
ager plan, advocated in many places
as an efficinecy measure, does not solve
the problem of dividing functions be
tween the State and county.
The report advocated the transfer
of policy and prosecuting of crime, in
both rural and urban areas, from local
government to the State. •

WHEN YOU BUY a car in this price class you
have every right to expect a really big, a
really luxurious car—with genuine, fine-cai
engineering throughout.
The Nash Ambassador has a 125-inch
wheelbase. Compare it in this important
respect with its nearest competitors!
The Ambassador is not a ‘‘scaled-doyjn”
model in any sense. There has been no
‘skimping” in upholstery or in fittings. And it
brings you engineering advantages usually
reserved by other manufacturers for cars
priced much higher than the Ambassador.
You get the famous Nash Twin-Ignition
engine, for example. You get big, super
bydraulic brakes, the protection of a nigged
all-steel body with steel top, and many other
expensive-car features.
Vet the prices of these luxurious, big
Ambassador sedans, including built-in trunks,
range frem only $835 to $995*. See the Am
bassador at the nearest Nash-LaFayette
showroom. Or better still, drive it! The Nash
