Buys Old Fire Truck At Auction BUFFALO, N. Y (AP) -Alexander Leslie went to a recent police garage auction to buy a motorcycle. He drove away in a 1941 fire truck “I paid 1357 for it. which was $50 more than anybody else bid,” said i^esiie a 20-year-old college student I figured it would be a sound investment and. besides. I just liked the thing " me International Harvester fire engine is complete with two rolls of black hot**. a functioning shiny chrome siren and emergency lights The truck had been used by the Buffalo fire department until two years ago for battling grass fires Owning a fire truck can have its moments. Leslie said. “Last week it caught on fire." he said “It was only the insulation around the battery cable, and the fire was out by the time fire fighters arrived “They thought I had responded to the call and it took some explaining to convince them that my fire truck was on fire They said it was the most interesting call they had hbd all night. “I took the truck to Canada twice, and the first time they held me at Canadian customs and thoroughly searched the vehicle. “The second time they were going to go through the whole business again But a customs agent thought for a second and said ’Who the heck would try to smuggle anything in a fire truck'*’ and waved me through ” Big George Virgil Partch Researcher Sees Dogs As Increasing Menace NOW/ Status Offense Label Hit by Rep. Lipsky “Status offenses should not be used to label a child delinquent ", State Rep Joan Lipsky told the Linn County Law Wives at their meeting Thursday, at Elmcrest Country club. About half of the girls being held at the state training school in Mitchellville have been sent there because of status offenses, she said and this type of offense is charged againsf girls much more than boys and so may constitute sex discrimination in application of our juvenile laws Mrs. Lipsky is a member of the legislative study committee which is reviewing the Iowa laws dealing with juveniles She outlined changes which have been proposed by that committee “The committee agrees that status offenses should be placed in the neglected and dependent categories rather than be charges of delinquency,’ Mrs Lipsky said. Status offenses are acts which would not be considered criminal acts if performed by an adult. They include such charges as running away, disobedience to parents or acting in a manner injurious to himself “These status offenses should be under the neglected and dependent section of our juvenile laws” Mrs. Lipsky said “This means that these children will not be placed with others who have committed criminal acts and they will not have the label of delinquency following them through their school and community life." Mrs. Lipsky stressed the need for the provision of appropriate places and programs to hold children “The continued use of jail cells is both illegal and deplorable" she said “But law enforcement officers are not to blame. They can use only the facilities which the community provides." Mrs. Lipsky said the use of “contract beds” is expanding in Iowa. This is an arrangement where the community pays for one or more beds in the home of an individual who has the ability and willingness to take emergency custody of young people who have bw*n lucked up by the police “I think the (.real Waldo has been nipping again Show Goes On Despite Wife’s Death B(INN.
