Fiftn Ave. Secretary Chief Not on Dale, Just Arresting Man Dressed Like Woman Pedestrians on Main street, Roy- ersford. last nieht might have thought Chief of Police Bryson Turner was "out with another wo- man.'7 But, not woman happened to be a man and a ro- bust one at that. It was Thomas Goneski. 42. of Fourth avenue and Main street, who the police chief locked up in the police station, to await a hearing this morning before Justice of the Peace Otto H. Mover. Goneski essayed the role of what a well dressed woman should wear. At. least he was garbed in such a manner as to cause the chief to cause his arrest, on a charge of dis- orderly conduct and impersonating a woman. His attire included a dress with short, sleeves, woman's stockings, wig and hair net. and black pumps. Yes, the dress was knee-length. Goneski was promenading on Main street, near Fourth avenue, when the officer concluded it was j time to act. He escorted him to the j police station, in full view of those i who happened to be out on the] street and wondered what it was all j about.
