Sacrilegious Traffic Signs Removed When Ministers Protest
(By United Press.)
Middletown, Conn., June 25.–Edward R. Dunn of the police department conceived the novel idea of painting Greek crosses on curbstones at points where pedestrians were supposed to cross the street.
Clergymen protested the practice was sacrilegious and police Chief Charles A. Anderson ordered the signs removed. In their place was painted the word “cross.”
