Trinidad Boys to Start Drive to Sell Shares In Club Tomorrow The Trinidad Boys’ Club, 1119 Wylie street N.E., tomorrow will begin sale of 25,000 “shares" in the club at $1 per share. ,The club says the fund drive provides its only hope of staying open to its 450 members, boys from 6 to 18 years old, who haven't any other place to go. The drive will last a month. The “shares" may be bought by adults, persons who are interested Jta seeing this club, in a renovated garage, survive after five years of hectic existence. Youngsters may spend their dollars, too. But it is the adults of the community to whom the boys look. Director of the club, Fred E. Nalley, jr„ who founded it in Au gust, 1944, and who was chosen by the Junior Board of Com merce in 1946 as Washington’s outstanding young civic leader, hasn’t been paid since last Octo ber for his constant work there.

Unopened packages of BB-shot strewn over a 10-block area pro vided the “sc«it” followed by the police department "hounds” as they rounded up the youthful hi-jacker "hares.” Second procinct scout cars and a Detective Bureau cruiser raced to the warehouse after police re ceived a report that a veritable cascade of cameras, radios and cartons of merchandise were pour ing over a 6-foot fence. As the police cars neared the scene, a crowd of boys, all colored, scattered. Detectives Thomas Sullivan, D. W. Chapman and Francis Garver and uniformed officers took out after the fugi tives on foot. As the boys fled they emptied their pockets of packages of BB-shot. A 29-year-old colored man sur prised near his home with two cameras and two radios explained to police that he was on his way home from a crap game, minding his own business, when he came upon a crowd of boys outside the fence around the warehouse. Some of the boys were racing away with a coaster wagon full of merchan dise when the cameras and radios dropped off right at his feet. So he just picked them up and started home.
