Since last Tuesday, Hope, N.M., had received nearly seven inches of rain. Flash flood watches contin* ued in effect in portions of Southwest Texas and New Mexico. Overflows from the rains caused flooding of the Lower Valley area southeast of El Paso and some residents were evacuated. Water was reported knee deep to chest high in the Cedar Grove area adjoining El Paso. Coins stolen from phones LITTLE ROCK (AP) - More than $10,000 has been stolen during the past 18 months from coin telephones operated by Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. in Arkansas. Several arrests have been made in connection with the break-ins that authorities say also are affecting five neighboring states. The investigation is continuing by state police in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi, Texas and Kentucky. Authorities said the manufacture of a tool called a "puller" or "pusher" has been used to break into the telephone coin boxes and that it was traced to a tool and die maker in North Little Rock. The man confirmed that he made such a tool but did not know what it was to be used for, authorities said. The tallest block of apartments in the world is Lake Point Towers of 70 .stories, 645 feet high, in Chicago, THE A FAMILY* LAWYER Motel and Your Car Melvin's restful night at a motel came to a jarring end when he looked out the window in the morning. His car, which he had parked just outside the room, had disappeared. In fact, he never saw it again. In due course, he tried to collect reimbursement from the management of the motel. "I was their guest," he argued in a court hearing, "and my car was on their premises. Therefore, they are. legally liable for the loss." However, the court tossed out Melvin's claim. The court said his argument did not stand up because he had never turned over possession of the car to the management. He had parked the car himself and kept the keys in his pocket. It is true that motels—and hotels as well—bear a substantial responsibility for the property of their guests. This rule dates all the way back to the Middle Ages in England, when inns were considered a kind of safety zone for the travelling public. But the rule does not go into effect until the property has been transferred to the possession of the management. In the case of automobiles, possession is ordinarily transferred when the guest surrenders his keys to a company employee. The exact moment of transfer may become crucial. One woman left her car at the entrance to a hotel and went in to register. When the bellboy asked her for the keys, she replied that she had left them in the ignition.- Shortly afterward, a thief slipped into the car and made off with it. Had the woman delivered possession of the car to the hotel management, making it responsible for her loss? A court said yes, even though the keys had never been physically handed over to the bellboy. The court said the woman's words had given him the right to take possession of the car—and along with the right went the responsibility.
