''When she said she told was a parking warden I her to eet out get out m no uncertain terms." The meter maid was allowed into the inn Friday when she told a friend of Guest's that she was from Scotland Yard on "urgent'* business. A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "As there was no one there on two previous visits, the warden decided to call at 7 thought a.m. because it was there was a better chance of finding somebody in. "Mr. Guest complained about the time of the visit, but admitted he was the driver of the vehicle." The spokesman added: "He became imcooperative and told the warden to leave."

(UPI) Tunny Robbery Ends in Sentence MIDDLBSdRQUGH, England Even the cops bank raid (UPI) laughed about the Kenneth Waterfield, bungler, who made two feeble attempts to get rich quick. His first crack at a bank in Ormesby, Middlesbrough, came when he tried to smash down the bank's solid front doors with a tiny hammer and a chisel. That landed him a six- month suspended sentence. A week later he was back and within minutes had set off the burglar alarm and was caught on the spot. "Both these attempts were ludicrous," said Waterfield's prosecutor at Wa- erfield's second court pearance. "Even the regarded it as a joke." But the court did not see the funny side. Magistrates sent Waterfield to prison for a year. Stein, economic adviser, said the administration might try to slow inflation throu^ tax means, perhaps lowering the investment tax credit. According to Monte Gordon of Dreyfus Fund, "The tax steps will not help the market," Gordon said the stock market now is a ''no confidence market. It is reflecting concern over the disclosures in the Watergate case, to a degree." Gulf Oil was the most active Tern h New Pogo Champion WA1K1NS GL«3N, N.Y.
