Chamber Warns About Holiday "Gyp Schemes" The business consumers bureau of the Chamber of Com- merce has issued a warning on so-called "gyp artists" that seem to flourish during the holi- day shopping season. John Stock, chairman of the bureau, said there are several schemes that crop up each year. He mentioned the following: Unordered merchandise, often sent in the name of an unknown charity or as an outrighl com- mercial.venlure. Telephone or house-to-house appeals from an unknown chari- table organization for funds, clothing, food or fuel. Attempts to collect for a C.O.D. package for a neighbor the deliverer claims is not at home. So-called bargain offers in magazines for cosmetics falsely sold under an established brand name or advertised as a brand name with a different label. Stock also advised lhat deli- very time for gifts ordered from magazines generally is at least four weeks. "Keeping this in mind will prevent disappoint- he commented. "Christmas he noted, "should be made in the same manner as ordinary pur- chases: Buy from established and reliable firms, examine the purchases, understand the war- ranty and exchange provisions and beware of bargains that seem too good lo be true." F and S at 1 St and St Is Coming! WAIT FOR At Tuesday's informal meeting when the ordinance was dig cussed, Canney questioned! the fee but did not mention his reservations about what type ol films might be shown. After the vote, he said he fell it necessary to vote against per- mitting any films, since the state legislature has "pre-empt- ed" the right of cities to regu- late pornoraphy and it is ap- jarently not possible for the city ;o permit old-time movies, car- oons or sports films withoul also permitting pornographic films.' Public Improvements Com- missioner Richard Phillips said le.voted for the ordinance be- cause he thought it was the only vay the council could have any control over what was shown in averns. 'Some Control' "It was my understanding hey could show films, anyway, and this ordinance at least gives is some control over 'hillips said. "If that under- ;tanding isn't correct, I would not vote for the 'Ordinance. I hink my record shows how I eel about pornography." Finance Commissioner Hal Schaefer said he, too, felt regu- ating the type of films shown vas not within the council's lowers, and voted for the ordi ance because it provides somi 'egulation. The ordinance is designed t< eplace an existing ordinance rohibiting any films in taverns r bars. The new one was draft d after requests by severa ocal business men who said ley want to show inoffensive 1ms. The ordinance will become w if passed on two more read- gs and published. Asked if he anned to veto the ordinance, anney said, "Not unless I have e prevent an over- de of the veto) and! I don't iem to have the votes now." reakins Reported At Central City Two 'breakins at Central City uesday night have been report- d to the Linn sheriff's office.
