OHIO FEBRUARY 28, 1957 10 CENTS PARKING METERS BLAMED* D&C Halting Deliveries Truck deliveries to the doors ofjamestown merchants will be stopped Monday. "Up in arms" has become more than an e x p r e s s i o n . Merchants may have to take their merchandise from the D and C Transportation Co. exactly that way unless the parking meter situation here is resolved. Henry Harlow, president of the trucking line, informed all D and C freight users by letter that the door-stop ser­ vice will be stopped Monday. He said the Village Council's decision to make trucks feed the meters is "unreasonable." Wails of protest have arisen from truck drivers since vil­ lage police started enforcing a council e d i c t that trucks feed the meteB while load­ ing and unloading. Council members instructed Mayor Floyd E. Smith to di­ rect p o l i c e to m a k e the trucks pay in an action last month. Councilmen asserted that t r u c k e r s had violated l o a d i n g privileges by con­ suming parking space after loading had been completed. The v i l l a g e r u l e , as it stands today, is that trucks must pay the meters if they are o c c u p y i n g a metered space. Merchants here have been asked by Harlow where the trucking f i r m may deposit f r e i g h t wi t hout plugging pennies. No answer has been made. Merchants are fuming and a s t r o n g recommendation to Village Council is expected to come f r om T h u r s d a y night's session of thg James­ town Businessmen’s Associa­ tion. That group will meet at C u r 1e y 's Restaurant and the trucking situation probar bly will be agenda number one item. Mr. Harlow was not avail­ able to outline just what ac - tion h is f i r m will take if merchants make no answer by M o n d a y . The trucking line is o b l i g a t e d to haul freight to Jamestown because af its franchise. But merchants feel the line has the upper hand since there is no provision in the fran­ chise about where deliveries are to be ma d e . And poor service from the trucking line Prayer Day Here Next Wednesday Wo r l d Da y o f Prayer in Jamestown will be observed Ash Wednesday March 6, at the B a p t i s t Church at 1:30 p .m . The pu r p o s e of the World Day of Prayer is to u- nite all Christians in a bond o f p r a y e r . T h i s y e a r t h e churches of Jamestown will c e l e b r a t e this great world wide observance on the fiB t day of lent. Miss Helen Fletcher, mis­ sionary of the Friends Church to Kenya Africa, will be the guest speaker. She is a mem­ ber of the Jamestown Friends Meeting, home on a furlough to study, and Jamestown is previlegedto have her in our community where she is a- vailable to speak. The High School Chorus of 30 voices under the direction of Mr. Robert Schierloh will sing. A committee of women from each of th e churches has p r e p a r e d the program wi t h Mr s . G. C. Reed as chairman. Everyone of the community is most cordially invited to attend. Lions Seek Incorporation For Community Building by the club for the past sev­ eral years. Recent acquisi­ tion of the l a n d , largely t h r o u g h donation, brought the vision closer to reality. Now that the legal step of i n c o r p o r a t i o n has been started, the c l u b stands in full approval of the project. V a r i o u s fund -raising ideas are being considered. Howard Hasbrook, from the Dayton office of the Social Security administration, was speaker for th£ Lions Tues­ day night. He outlined pro­ cedures for business and pro­ fessional men in Social Se­ curity accounting. Jamestown Lions Club took a big step T u e s d a y night toward eventual construction of a c o mm u n i t y building. The c l u b v o t e d to incor­ porate. As a non-profit corporation the Lions will be legally en­ titled to hold property as an organization. Land for the future building is a v a i l a b l e but funds.for c o n s t r uction are yet to be raised. It is anticipated that . t he bu i l d i ng may actually c o m e into use during 1958 or 1959. Jamestown Lions have en­ v i s i o n e d a c omm u n i t y :tathering c e n t e r sponsored is anticipated unless cooper­ ative action is taken by the village. Nearly all c o m m e r c i a l freight, other than that de­ livered by rail, comes into the village by way of the D and C line. Mr.Harlow's letter to mer­ chants: "Effective March 4, 1957 we will not be able to make deliveries to your door as in the past. This is due to the parking meteB we are now supposed to feed on deliveries from our truck. "This is unreasonable and impractical for our driver to do so considering the number of stops he makes in James­ town each day ." "We regret this action. " P l e a s e advise where de- liveries may be m ade.. . " CEDAR TUSSLE IS TOMORROW Cedarville Lions put their unstained basketball record on the line tomorrow night for the benefit of the Ce­ darville High school. It's a R e t u r n match be­ tween the L i on s and the high school f a c u l t y that will be staged at the college gym. Proceeds from the game will go to the purchase of an audiometer, a d e v i c e to test h e a r i n g , for the high school. Prizes will be awarded at the game. Pre-feature event will be a hardwood tussle between the Clifton 6th Graders and t the Cedarville 7th Graders. The record stands at one to n o t h i n g for the Lions after they scored a victory o v e r the teachers in De­ cember. DELIVERY, ANYONE?... MAKING HAY in the darkness of a motor freight boycott here, enterprising Johnny Baker is toying with the idea of manually hauling freight into Jamestown. He figures that he can parlay one wheelbarrow and a set of muscles into something as local merchants face a cu t-off of doorway deliveries Monday. The D&C line, the franchised carrier here, is protesting a village edict that parking meters must be fed during loading and unloading operations. (Guardian Prayer Day at UP Church Plans have been completed for the World Day of Prayer to be held Friday, March 8 at 2 p.m. at the Cedarville United Presbyterian Church.
