Ave. SKIPMOBILE BAN BOTHERS TAKOMA Councilmen of Park Suburb Coldly Adhere to Ordinance Aimed at Kiddies. Sweet songbirds .may trill their blithesome roundelays all day long and the frogs may take up tho musi cal refrain at night, but in spite of these signs of spring the hearts of Takoma Park kiddles are sad. And all because the stern town fathers have brutally decided to en force the ordinance banning coast ing in "wheeled vehicles with metal tires" on the new concrete streets. The ordinance was passed last fall over a storm of protest from the parents of children who were wont to "skipmoblle" and otherwise coast over the streets, and for a while the staid municipality was torn with strife. Petitions were signed by hundreds of parents asking repeal of the ordinance, and the Takoma Park Citi zens' Association formally supported these appeals. Then winter came, and the coast Ing kiddies "put one over" on the town fathers by pouring water on the streets and using sleds. The ordinance finally was for gotten. Some daring kiddies re cently started In to oast again, with wagons and "sklpmoblles." Application for repeal of the ordi nance has been reposing In the flies of the ordinance committee, which last night reported adversely. Coun cilman Wade W. Dyar, chairman, and Councilman H. E. Rogers presented a written report, while Councilman B. B. Jenkins, third member of the committee, favored limiting the coasting to certain hours. Councilman Dyar suggested the employment of a special officer to en force the ordinance. Everybody ex cept Mayor Williams and Council man Taff. seemed to be In favor or letting the ordinance stand. It was suggested that a uniform be purchased for Superintendent of Public works E. E. Blodgett, a warm advocate of the ordinance. Meanwhile the community is wait ing to see what the next step In the merry war will be. Sentiment Is decidedly In favor of the kiddies.
