Jim: Judge Jeffries lays down the law
Noise ordinance enforcement: A crackdown in 1922 long overdue for diligent enforcement today. -CM
The following front page announcement in the June 13, 1922 edition of the News without a doubt struck fear and trembling into the heart of every automotive scofflaw in the county. (I send this with a heavy heart, woefully aware that there are but three or four of us left who know what a "cut-out" was. "And thus, the days of yore tumble one on the other into the abyss of time.")
Judge Jeffries has tacked up cards, with the wording, warning automobile drivers that they must cut off the "cut out," and after dark, both lights on the machine must be in action, and fast driving on the streets and square must stop. The judge is right and we are glad he has given publicity to his decision, and hope that his warning notice will have proper effect. If this order is disobeyed, look out for fines.Does, perchance, one of these warning cards reside in the Joe Moore Museum of Arcane and Ancient Relics of Adair County?
/s/ Jim, a now (mostly) reformed cut-out artist
