Colonial Beach Quiet
As Rowdyism Ends
Special Ditpatch to The Star
80.—Town authorities expressed
satisfaction today that rowdyism
among teen-age children, re
vealed recently in newspapers, has
disappeared from Colonial Beach.
Both Mayor Norman P. Brew
ington and Virgil Miller, chief of
the night police here, said condi
tions on the beach had returned
to normal as the result of police
activity and publicity.
"Everything’s lovely," comment
ed Chief Miller. "A good many
of the children have left and
everything is going along well.”
The mayor and the chief agreed
that a relatively small percentage
of the youths were responsible for
the trouble. This consisted of
heavy drinking, immorality, curs
ing and carousing at all hours.
Most of the teen-agers from out
of town belonged to sororities and
fraternities at high schools in the
Washington area. Town officials
and parents pointed out that most
of the visiting groups were ade
quately chaperoned and were well
behaved. A few had no chape
rones, however, and were blamed
for most of the disturbances.
