Quick response by city police in the middle of last night foiled a supposedly would-be burglar on our block. The man attempted entry at the front door but the resident heard the noise and immediately phoned the police. The dispatcher kept the caller on the line until assistance arrived. The event awakened the neighbors as well. The intent of the criminal is not entirely clear, however; by all reports he was so drunk or stoned that he might have been totally disoriented and not at all aware of just what he was doing. Fortunately no one was hurt during the incident . . . The nicely made wooden sign is nineteen inches long and about five inches wide and is already equipped with hooks for hanging. Sells for $10.50 which I consider a bargain when one considers the workmanship . . .
