BUILDING City One Safe Recovered Springfield police are taking a close look at a safe recovered after a burglary at the Southwest Power Administration sometime during the weekend.

But they don't expect to recover another safe stolen from the Hamburger Inn. The 2 2-foot safe "probably was tossed off a bridge or something," Detective Gene Wheeler commented this morning. The SPA office at Battlefield and Golden were entered sometime between Christmas Eve and 4:25 a.m. yesterday when an officer discovered a door pane broken. The safe, which contained $75 in cash and some books and receipts, was found shortly fore 9 a.m., abandoned beside a road north of Greenlawn Cemetery, by Gus Stokes, 2860 Rochelle.

Some papers were still inside, but the money had been removed after the thieves knocked off a combination lock. The smaller safe taken from the Hamburger Inn, 434 South Jefferson, contained $60 in change. The thieves also took 70 cents from vending machines, 11 cartons of cigarettes, six T-bone steaks and two boxes of cigars, all valued at about $90. Burglars made a determined, but unsuccessful, effort to enter the Lawson Jewelry Store on Park Central Square early yesterday, but had to settle a storage room of the Fox Theater. Officers said the intruders climbed a fire escape on the theater, adjacent to the store, and pried open a door to the theater.

They also forced a door to the manager's office but took nothing from the room. Prying entry to storage closet, they removed boxes of candy from shelves, took out the shelves and ripped paneling and insulation from the wall, which resisted their efforts to gain entry to the jewelry shop. In other thefts reported to police yesterday: W. R. Baldwin said a box containing 104 spark plugs was stolen by someone who removed the lock from a trailer at Ler Way Freight Lines, 334 North Nettleton; W.

G. Ivie, custodian at St. Paul Methodist Church, 413 East Walnut, officers intruders shoved 'cardboard from a door pane broken in a previous burglary, and took a typewriter from an office, and I. D. Middlebusher reported a $200 tape recorder, $200 typewriter, $45 briefcase and an electric clothes brush were stolen from an office at South Side Baptist Church, 465 South Grant.
