Westchester First GOT THE AUTO SOCIALIST VOTE WHISKEY AND JAILS MOVING DYNAMITE ^ B f LOpj E. TlUTtB . A Pelham newspaper tells the' story ot shout ss high-handed a piece of business as wo have heard of In some time. Residents of Pel ­ ham were awakened at 3 o'clock the other morning by the sound of hammering. They looked out and saw two men tampering with the lock on a garage door. They called the police but. before the police got there, the men had broken the lock oft the garage, sc lied the automo ­ bile Inside and driven off with It. The police notified police depart ­ ments nearby and an hour later re ­ ceived a message from a motor fin ­ ance company In New Tork City Informing them that they bad hod two of their men break into the garage and get the car because there was a payment overdue on It. Sych tactics as these should not be overlooked. The finance com ­ pany had a legal means of regain ­ ing possession of the car, but In any case, forcibly breaking and en ­ tering at 3 o'clock in the morning Is not justified. Sending notifica ­ tion of what they had done to the police wae nothing more or leea than a masterpiece of audacity. Westchester Republicans and Democrats will not be startled by the fact that the Socialists-are put ­ ting a ticket Tin the field this fall. They always do but the competition given by the Socialists Is the least of the worries- of the two major parties. The Socialists of Westchester had an enrollment of 309 In the fall of 1937 and of 470 In the fall of 1978. a presidential year. In the state campaign of 1976. the party cast 1,903 votes In Westchester. Its presidential vote in 1970 was 8.097. In 1974 It dropped to 2,943 and In 1978 It went up to 4.408. Westches ­ ter Is hopelessly Republican and . Democratic and the Socialists find it a difficult task to edge in. Somebody has started the story that In the cornerstone of the old county jail, which may soon be torn down, there reposes a quart of-ex ­ cellent rye whiskey. Whether there Is truth in the story or not. we do not know, but one thing Is certain, | nothing more appropriate could be put In a Jail cornerstone than 'a bottle of whiskey. Whiskey Is the best friend our | Jails ynd prisons ever had. It it Whiskey that keeps our Jails and prisons populated, not alone by ’ hose who are sent there for drun ­ kenness but by many others who i -lid never go there did they not il crimes undef the Influence ’ key that they would other- •■cr think of committing, ould be an excellent Idea to i bottle of whiskey In the cor- :-i stone of every new Jail we build. I we could get all the booxe and put It away in these cornerstones it would only be a short time 'lb*population of would clrog seven!
