Hard One; Cops
City Attorney Bert Macy "sprung"
a new one today.. It's "perspicacity"
Do you know what it means?
Chief of Police Varney, himself a
nan of learning, frowned over a let
ter he received from the city's law
yer. .It was about the ordinance pro
hibiting the parking of autos for more
than an hour on the streets within the
fire limits between the hours of 12:30
a. m. and 5:30 a. m. Varney didn't
quite know how to go about enforc
ing it, so he had enquired of Macy.
The letter read something like this:
"Officers should exercise the same
dillirence and perspicacity in appre
hending violators of this ordinance " ,
' Day Sergeant Rowe didn't know
whether he had the qualification 6r
not, and asked the chief if he had bet-1
ter resign. ,
But he decided to remain on after
a dictionary had been consulted and
jthey found out that the word only
means a power to discern.
