This differs radically from the stnnd taken bv ihe present prosecutor. Edward B. Brad- I ley. who terminated his term of today for Mr. Bradley maintained j thfjt he would refuse to prosecute un- j the existing bc'.ich ordinances i which prohibit parking of out of i town vehicles, undrcssln.it In cars and i require the payment of an annual fee toj town residents who wish to park thClr cars at the beach. A number of townspeople have a petition for another town meeting when they will attempt to i this list of restrictions rescinded. I Riwecutor-elect Jennings stated that I i although he was far frpm In favor of I the present ordinances and there was a considerable question as to their le- gality, he believed it his duty as pro- sjaeutor to be governed by t he town Wrs. "If the present ordinances said Mr. Jennings, "which we hope they will not when the new ones c6me up for acceptance. I would be forced to prosecute upon sufficient i testimony any infractions, although it. to mo thai an appeal woxild certainly settle the matter for the de- fendant provided n conviction was gained. I believe- that the present, or- dinances are most Impractical. It aflems to me that the new ordinances. which were rejected at the lasr town meeting on the beach question are far and more Just than these passed on April 2V" I High School Bnnqiiet I Some 60 graduates of Staples High achool gathered at the annual banquet of'the Staples High school alumni at the Top o- the Hill Tea Bouse for a turkey dinner.
