take him to the station house for
questioning. When the patrol car
pulled in front of police head-
quarters, Russell bolted from the
car and ran from the officers.

Garrison and Williams gave
chase and cornered the youth about

Local Crime Wave
Tapers Off Some
The mounting wave of burglaries
in the county which has resulted
in some 25 businesses being en-
tered in the past three weeks,
subsided somewhat this week with
only two crimes reported since
County sheriff Tiny Royse re-
ported that thefts had been re-
ported from a Yukon auto agency
and from an El Reno been tavern.
A,bout 100 packs of cigarettes
and some silver were taken from
a vending machine in the 66

set drive sometime Monday night.

1,400 Car Owners
Have New Tags
The purchase of automobile and
truck licenses for the new year
has been going at “about an aver-
age rate,” is was announced today
by tag agent Mrs. Maria Freeman.
Figures showed this afternoon
that about 1,400 passenger car
owners had taken out their 1956
licenses and something over 400
commercial and farm vehicle
owners had bought theirs.
Deadline for purchase of the
new white tag with black numer-
als is January 31. Beginning Feb.
1 motorists will be paying a ten-
ccnt-a-day penalty on their new
tag and just 30 days later on
March 2 the new plates will double
in cost and law officers will be-
gin seizing drivers who do not
display the 1956 tag.
Mrs. Freeman reports that
processing has been fast and little
or no waiting is experienced by
tag buyers. She suggests the after-
noon hours for buyers who would
prefer to visit the office during
the least busy time.
Work On Sunset
Drive Job Due To
Begin in February
The El Reno city council has
given its okay to plans and speci-
fications submitted recently by the
state highway commission on the
Sunset drive project and it is
generally believed that construc-
tion on the Federal-state $ 250-
GOO job is due to get underway
within two months.
Specifications in the office of
the city manager C. A. Bentley
show that the project will start
immediately west of the Rock Is-
land overpass and continue west-
ward to the east edge of the Fori
Reno reservation. The plans call
for a 50-foot road bed from the
overpass west to the curve at.
Adams park whore the road is to
be divided into a four-lane
throughfare. The job will include
construction of new bridges at
Reno and 15th streets.
Cement to be Used
The plans show that an eight-
inch sub base will be laid with
a four-inch sub cushion of sand.
The surface is
of Portland cement. The old paving
will be .removed.
The street has a 66-foot right-
of-way which will leave property
owners on both sides of the streets

The entire project measures 1.884

both Abercrombies and Motors
Inc., were entered by thieves
breaking windows: The only thing
missing reported by the owners
was SI.35 taken from the Motors
Inc. cash register.
The thieves tried to enter the
Big Warehouse store by chiseling

ject to a penalty if they don’t

$253,000 Contract Is
Set for Yukon Road
Canadian county may be in for
more highway improvement soon
according to the tone of the Jan-
uary 1956 issue of the magazine
OKLAHOMA TODAY, the official
publication of the state govern-
ment, which is out this week.
In the article concerning the
outlook for highway improvement
in coming months, it lists a $253,-
000 contract for some three mile?:
of four-lane grading and drainage
from the Oklahoma county line
west to Yukon.
C. A. Stoldt, highway director,
reported that the state highway
commission let $2,206,968 more in
contracts for road improvement
during the first 11 months of 1955
than it did during the correspond-
ing period of 1954.

Christmas long distance phone
calls to link up widely separated
members of families are growing
in popularity, it is reported by
Mrs. Thelma Lewis, chief opera-
tor at the El Reno Southwestern-
Bell Telephone office.
For the Yule occasion being a
time of family reunions, the phone
provides a convenient substitute
for those who are unable to join
in the the trips home. A visit with
loved ones over the wires bridges
the gap which otherwise would
result in holiday loneincss, the
phone folks pointed out.
To check on the growing popu-
larity of the Christmas calls. Mrs.
Lewis compared last year’s rec-
ord with this and came up with
the following figures: LD calls on
Dec. 24, 1954, 935; on Dec. 25,
704; total 1,634. Calls on Dec. 24,
1955, 1,065; on Dec. 25, 729; total
Noting the steady increase in the
Christmas calls, the phone com-
pany adds additional personnel to
the long distance staff during the
two-day period each year. No over-
seas calls were handled by the
local office this year, although one
went to Canada and other all over
the United States.
Farmers Get Advice
On Social Security
Many self-employed farmers
here in your county will soon be
filling income tax returns for the
first time and paying their social
security tax if their gross earnings
are as much as $800 or their
net earnings amount to $400 or
more for , the year.
Joseph J. McCain, manager of
the Oklahoma City Social Security
office, offers this advice to these
new taxpayers: (1) Make sure
the report is complete and correct
by itemizing all sources of in-
come and expenses; (2) Enter
your cocial security number in all
places it is called for on the forms;
and (3) Keep an extra copy of
the return at home or In a safe
place, together with all business
records from which the return
McCain emphasized that the
self-employed farmer who follows
these three steps will have little
trouble in proving his claim to
benefits when the time comes.
Walter McRae of the Oklahoma
City office will br* in El Reno at
| the Post Office from 8:30 a.m. to
2:00 p.m. on January 5 to answer
social security Inquiries.

Oh Holiday Vacation
Mr. and Mrs. Siler and their two
daughters had gone to California
only last week to be with the
relatives over the holidays. Siler
is owner of Jonnie’s Grill at 315
South Rock Island.
Silers’ parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Ernest Siler of North of El Reno
said that information received by
them indicated that a dam had
broken in the vicinity of the Stru-
ts’ cabin and the waters inundated
the area in a matter of minutes.
The family was wading a swollen
stream in an effort to reach high
ground when the treagedy occurcd.
Strula told tuthorlties that he was
carrying Mamie Rae in his arms
as he forded the stream, but was
bowled over by the swift waters
and the child was swept from his
grasp. He reported that when he
reached safety the child, Mrs.
Tentative plans were launched at a meeting this
morning at the chamber of commerce office for the pur-
chase of ground and the setting up of a large off-street
parking area to be financed by local merchants in an
effort to alleviate the parking shortage which is handi-
capping business here.
Morris Wright, chairman of the*-•
committee in charge of the proj-
ect, brought J. Wiley Richardson,
prominent Oklahoma City mer-
chant and owner of several park-
ing stations, to the meeting to
provide information on thcvmethod
of operating a parking ticket
validation system f o r shoppers.
Under this plan the participating
merchants would provide free
parking in the lot for downtown
Take Option on Property
Mr. Morris explained to the
group of business men present that
an option for the purchase of the
Stewart Lumber Co. property had
been taken by ten local business
men, to be effective until Jan.
17. In the intervening time it is
hoped that an organization of
merchants may be set up who will
buy $20,000 of stock in the plan.
The remainder of the cash needed
for the project would be bor-
Under the terms of the option,
the present Stewart Lumber Co.
building would be razed and
smoothed while the storage lot
across the street to the north
would be cleared. The warehouse
on the east side would be re-
tained and used for rental pur-
Cost of the 260 feet of property
would run $62,800, according to
Mr. Wright. The space thus
cleared would accomodate between
100 and 120 autos, it is estimated.
In the event the purchase is con-
cluded, it is planned to blacktop
the lots and place a parking at-
tendant in charge.
Mr. RichardMMi explained the
problem which is faced in every
city in the nation of providing
downtown parking for the firms
which conduct the majority of the
business and pay the majority of
the taxes in each community. He
suggested that while the proposed
project would be a help it would
by no means cure the problem.
Acquisition of other locations for
similar projects should be one of
the goals of the organization of
merchants, he declared.
Mr. Morris stated that the next
step would be the underwriting
of the $20,000 fund and the work-
ing out of a system for financing
the monthly operations of the lot.
Bill Stewart, Shawnee, who heads
the Stewart Lumber Co. chain,
accepted the option offer lust
