Rejects Claim Against Harlan Parking Meter Firm Sought Owed HARLAN A Federal Court of Appeals has recommended that the Duncan Parking Meter Com- pany's claim against the City of Harlan be rejected, it was learned Thursday.

The ordinance providing for the meters did not take effect until the following May 6. Under a rental arrangement, the firm was to receive payment out of meter receipts. The con- tract provided, however, that the city had an option to terminate the tease within 30 days after the meters had been "in operation" one full year.

The company then filed a suit in Federal.Dis- trict Court, maintaining that the city had failed to exercise its option within the time limit speci- fied in the contract. In replying, the city contended that motorists began using the unhooded meters as soon as they were :nstalled. Therefore. Ihr city contended, its notice was filed within the specified time. The District Court then ruled that the firm was entitled to the Balance of the full amount. are Park Commissioner Wayne Fariday and Supt. John L. Chris- Gross Gets Drink As...
