Size of Pocket Knives Would Be Restricted By A l l e g h e n y P r o s e c u t o r International News Service. PITTSBURGH, Jan. 5.--If District Attorney Andrew T. Park has his way, the State Legislature may be called upon in the near future to limit the size of pocket knives carried by John Q. Citizen in Pennsylvania. The Idea was first advanced by Howard C. McKinney, director 6f the Pittsburgh Police Department's 'friendly service bureau for crime protection," who pointed out that overgrown pocket knives were the weapons most frequently - used in attacks and cuttings. Park promised to do what he could to bring the matter to_the" attention of the lawmakers. His request will be that the solons limit the size ot any pocket knife to nboul three inches--more than the sbc of any ordinary picket knife--and that any' thing over that be classified as a dangerous and concealed weapon. The only leeway permissible, under the law he contemplates, would be for hunters and sportsmen, who would be allowed to carry* larger knives if they had their hunting licenses with them. The law would ban the sale of stilettoes completely. Thus, Park and McKinney hope to eliminate j many minor crimes by nipping them at their source, by outlawing the favored weapon.
