HER LIGHTS’
URGED FOR TAXIS
'ftw
Police Department Suggests
Installation to Guard
Against Hold-ups.
The Police Department has sug
gested to taxicab companies that they
install “blinker" lights as emergency
signals on all cabs to guard against
bold-ups, Capt. Ira E. Keck, assistant
Chief of detectives, said today.
His announcement followed two
taxi hold-ups last night, in which one
cab driver was forced to drive five
men to Rockville, Md„ and was left
bound on the rear seat of his cab on
returning to Washington, and another
was robbed of $9 by two passengers.
“Blinkers" Bring Aid.
Capt. Keck said the “blinker” light
signal system had been used with con
siderable success in Baltimore for
about a year. He explained that
special colored lights are installed on
the top of the cab at the front cor
ners. When a driver finds a sus
picious character in his cab or is be
ing held up he can touch a concealed
button that sets the warning lights
to blinking. These emergency signals
attract police cars and other cab
drivers to the victim's aid. Capt. Keck
said the system had trapped several
taxi bandits in Baltimore.
Cab association officials have been
Studying the Police Department pro
posal, but have delayed action on in
stallation of the system here on ac
count of the cost involved, it was un
derstood.
The cab-driver victims of hold
ups last night were Sandy I. Pullman,
colored, 1227 New Jersey avenue N.W.,
and John T. Reeves, Colmar Manor,
Md.
One Draws Revolver.
» Pullman told police he drove three
white men from Seventh and S streets
N.W. to Third and Van Buren streets
N.W., where two other men got in
the cab. One of the men drew a
revolver, he said, and ordered him to
drive to Rockville. Near Rockville
they robbed him of $7.50, bound his
Iss
hands and feet and put him on the
rear seat. One of the bandits drove
the cab to Third and Whittier streets
N.W., where Pullman was left help
less. He was found and released by
Margaret Riley and Kitty Klllean of
Takoma Park, Md.
Rees said he picked up two men at
Thomas Circle and drove them to the
200 block of Ninth street S.W., where
one of them forced him out of the
cab with a revolver. They ran away
after taking $9 from his pockets, he
said.
MRS. STOKOWSKI GETS
DIVORCE DECREE TODAY
Orchestra Leader Denies Charge
of Cruelty, but Indicates He
Will Not Fight Suit.
By the Associated Press.
LAS VEGAS, Nev., Dec. 2.—The
second marriage of Leopold Stokowski,
magnetic interpreter of music, headed
for dissolution in a Nevada divorce
court late today.
In a closed session, Mrs. Stokowski,
of a New Jersey surgical manufactur
ing family, expected to win an uncon
tested decree.
Her suit charged the Philadelphia
Orchestra conductor with extreme
cruelty and asked approval of an Oc
tober property settlement which gave
her custody of and support for their
two daughters, Gloria Luba, 10, and
Andrea Sadja, 6.
Stokowski denied the cruelty charge
but indicated no effort would be made
to fight the suit.
