MALTOUM EPLrvU- TJTIUTY poles, which take _ quite a beating from motorists, do sometimes strike back. , One did at Long Beach Blvd, and Bixby Rd. in Long Beach yesterday morning, smashing the left front fender on a car driven by Kathy King. City College student Kathy was idling out in the street, waiting for the light to change, when hit by a pole on a telephone company truck. The truck driver miscalculated what his 50- foot load would do on a turn. It was an unjust revenge. , Kathy says she never hit a telephone pole in her life. T?VERY pre-election season ·" this dept gets calls from people who are puzzled or worried about their registration status. Several inquiries h a v e come recently from people who don't expect to vote in the primary because of absence from the city. They want to know if this will disqualify then from voting in the fall. It won't disqualify them. If their registration is good » now it will ride right through the November election, regardless of whether they vote next Tuesday. Beside that, one can al ways register or re-register. ·THAT old snooper. J. Paul Gleason, has been busy looking around the food markets and reports, rather sadly, that there's a bit of larceny in a lot of people. Paul has been watching the strawberry, buyers. "It's quite revealing." he reports.' "to watch people lurk -around the strawberries, juggling the berries from one box to another until they; have , a heaping container of -the largest items of red fruit." This, of course, leaves some boxes filled with the least desirable berries, but that doesn't seem to bother t h e f i l c h e r s . ' ' ·· ; ' "This type, of larceny is not limited to any particular kind of customer," says Gleason.; There are /little old ladies,, demure young housewives, · muscular men, and small children, juggling berries greedily and without conscience. ' "Market managers s a y there's not much they can do about it. However, I was in one market that had its strawberries and boxes enclosed in cellophane. That takes a lot of the good clean fun out of buying strawberries and I predict it won't last long." TVRIFTWOOD -- Through ·^ the efforts of the Leisure World Democratic Club, the John F.

"I was ahead of Rusty and when I looked back he wasn't there," said Rodney. -I got lost and just rode around for awhile." Rusty explained hours later. He is the couple's only child. "I was terribly worried," said Mrs. Legg, a native of Newfoundland. "Rusty" is sort of shy and we've taught him not to talk to strangers."
