TEXAS, 79604, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 29 1974-THIRTY-EIGHT PAGES IN THREE SECTIONS Associated Prest Of) Modern Robin Hood Giveth, But the Low Toketh Awoy SALT LAKE CITY <AP»-He called himself “Robin Hood Public Parking Aide” but his exploits on behalf of overtime parkers have been halted by the law. A couple of weeks ago, Richard Wessman, 24. began walking the streets of downtown Salt Lake City putting coins in expired parking meters. He would leave this card on the windshield of the overtime vehicle: “You have just been rescued from a $3 parking ticket by the Robin Hood Public Park ing Aide. This was done as a public service and can only be continued with your help. Please send $1 to continue this service." Attached was a stamped envelope addressed to VVcss-man's residence. He received $12 from a test run and last Monday went to work in earnest, distributing nearly 300 cards and feeding that many meters. Wessman, who used to deliver stocks for a brokerage firm, said that by Thursday, he had received about $25. The costs went for his postage and the change for the meters. Then the law entered the picture. Salt Lake City Attorney Roger F. Cutler said he phoned Wessman and warned him that he may have violated city laws. Wessman has agreed to quit his enterprise. City la\v specifies that It’s a violation to park for more thari a specified time in a given parking spot no matter how many times you feed a meter. Tires are sometimes marked to determine if a vehicle has been parked at a meter for more than the posted time Agreement Hinted In Missile Talks MOSCOW (AP) — President    sources.
