Week of April 20, 1953


Police are searching for a thief and vandal who today was bold enough to break into the basement of City Hall and steal a police radio microphone from one cruiser car and disconnect two microphones from two police motorcycles and a patrol wagon.

Glenn Middlekauff, a 15-year-old eighth-grader at Woodland Way Junior High School, is an exemplary Boy Scout.

To become a better Scout, Glenn wants to attend the 3rd National Boy Scout Jamboree, to be held in California this July, a trip that will cost an astronomical $325 for transportation, accommodations and everything involved. Glenn is sweeping floors, cleaning sinks and shining shoes at a local barbershop to raise the money. Now that his customers know his goal, the coins dropping in "Glenn's Jamboree Fund" box are adding up fast.
