New of who Edgewood. Metz. Sipe. 1941 FEATURES "SCREWY NEWS" IN THIS STATE Trie Kump. the Philadelphia, Dec. 31 (AP)--It's been a banner year for screw-ball news in the Keystone State. In Philadelphia, for example, animal animal lovers for 14 years had been pointing out "big boy," a turkey-like Animal in the^zoo, as a fine example of a male Australian cassowary. Last April "big boy" laid an egg. At Lanaster, a motorist admitted in court that he had driven 90 miles an hour, explaining: "When I drive slow my eyes wander wander and I get involved in accidents. When I drive fast I watch the road and nothing happens.'' Near Montrose a weary snow-plow operator finished clearing four-foot drifts from a highway. Then an airplane, out of gas. landed and blocked the road another two hours. Hot Bricks Cause Fire A fire in an Easton home was attributed attributed to hot bricks used to warm bed-clothing. City Health Officer Ira J. Hain at Reading learned that a low-cost housing project, was equipped with metal doors. He protested: "You can't *ack up quarantine notices." When rain began soaking pickets in front of a Philadelphia plant, the company sent out raincoats. At Olyphant, Police Captain Michael Rusyn resigned after a clash with the borough council but later returned to duty. Said Captain Rusyn: "I couldn't get rid of the uniform. So I thought. I'd better wear it out." Fifteen-year-old Margaret Smith swallowed the key to her diary at Harrisburg. It was duly recovered A 60-year-old friendless man attempted attempted suicide in Philadelphia '"because '"because I wasn't getting along well in school." He was enrolled iu WPA vocational classes. One hundred firemen were injured at a lumber yard fire at Lancaster-but Lancaster-but Assistant Chief Fred Deen wasn't among them. Deen returned to his home, fell down an open chute and broke his ribs. A marriage license was stolen from a Steelton home. A Philadelphia truant officer, searching for an errant pupil, him in an Army camp. The boy, had told recruiters he was 18. He was returned to his home--and school. A Carbondale woman, for the second time in two years, gave birth to a child with two teeth already through the gums. Court Oddities And on one visit to the Lancaster court house,' Christian H. Brooks 60, and Anna L. Hoffmeier, 32, obtained: a dog license, two fishing licenses--and a license to wed. Court proceedings produced their share of oddities. Judge William R. Lewis in Scranton ruled that a buck privite in Army, drawing $30 a month, cannot cannot be expected to pay alimony. Judge George Parry in Philadelphia Philadelphia ruled that a husband has claim on his wife's engagement wedding rings because such rings are given "for keeps." And Max Rothman. a Philadelphia Philadelphia jewelry salesman, asked for court order to keep police from "constantly harassing and arresting" arresting" him. Rothman said he had been pardoned pardoned after serving a sentence 10 years ago and ever since had been picked up "frequently" for questioning, questioning, although no charges had been filed against him.
