THE BRAZOSPORT FACTS '. EDflCMML PAGE ^^^ • » . Brozoiport and Brgzorla County, Friday, August 28, 1959"""'" J/MB/SHOP: REPORTER Slums Arel"errible NO HOLDS BAftRED BOUT?: (Editor* Note: Jim Bishop is en vacation. Today's column is written by Douglas Hearleof the New York Journal-American.) * was the hottest day of the year in The Bronx. Trafficmo- ved slowly, noisily, ploddingly up the cobblestones of Tremoni Avenue, along the Grand Concourse and down Fordham Ro ad. On the sidewalks the people m oved slow. Here and there a fat man paused long enough to remove his Hat and run his handkerchief along the sweatband and across the back of his neck. From open windows, the sleepless wail of infants could be heard. Orchard Beach was a writhing mass of color and even Long. Island Sound looked stagnant and warm. The air hung muggy over The Bronx and everyone waited for nightfall to brine relief. . When the men came home from work they took off society's coats and ties and shins. They ate light, cold suppers because it was too hot for cooking. And they drank iced coffee, wine, beer, water--anything wet and cool. Air-conditioned movies expected large crowds—department stores expected no'one The city was sweaty and smelly. It needed a bath. On East 140th Street between St. Ann's Ave. and Cypress Ave. the sun went down but the dusk brought no relief. \ The yellow light of the streetlamps seemed to magnify the heat. Themuggy stillness hung over each of the five-story tenements that lined the street. Windows were JT J^f" »?<! here and there a five-dollar fan worked itsheart out. When the darkness came and rhrt^'fl™ wer * done and tne children were asleep the women came out. Women are more clannish after dark. They talked quietly about theday; rney sat on the large steps in canvas or wooden chairs. On the ''stoop" of 591 East 140th Street sar four women. They were Winifred Daly, her 15-year-old daughter, Dorothy, Louise Blaskewicz and Helen Syznansky. Mrs. Blaskewicz and Mrs. Syznansky are both in their seventies. Fifteen feet from where they sat a group of hoodlums gathered around a firehydrant. With a home-made wrench they removed the.caps and turned on the pressure. The water burst across the street and splashed into another group sitting out for the evening air. Elderly Mrs. Blaskewicz called to the youths to turn the water off. she told .them that tne pressure in her fourth floor apartment was too low and that with the hydrant erupting she would get no water at all They ignored her. The hydrant gushed and the gutters ran wild with debris. Then, someone called the police. Two officers from the Alexander Avenue Station ca- me and the hoodlums fled. The cops turned the water off and left. The people in front of 591 resumed their talk. The gang returned., The hoods were angry now. Vengefully they slammed the hydrant open again and stood waiting for someone to say something. No one did. The police arrived again. This time a little too soon and completely unexpected. The gang scattered. Mrs. Blaskewicz pointed out a fleeing figure and the police gave chase. Peace again returned to East 140th Street between St. Ann's Ave. and Cypress Ave. Thelit- tle groups of neighbors resumed their conversations. The hoodlums did not return. A half hour later, a bottle of naming gasoline was dropped from the roof of 591 East 140th Street. It smashed on the stoop and sent little slivers of glass and liquid flame spraying over the four women? Mrs. Syznansky's legs were burnedi Mrs. Daly's hands and legs, Do- .rothy's side-all burned. Mrs. Blaskewicz ran blindly Into the street, her dress a sheet of flames.' She fell unconcious in the gutter. When dawn came, East 140th Street between St. Ann's Ave. and Cypress Ave. looked no different. The heat spell was broken. • The hydrant water that had gushed in thegutterwasdr- ied-up.
