It is this writer’s impression
that the principal reason for the
use of parking meters, is to reg
ulate parking and thereby ease
the traffic situation —which is a
constant problem today. They
were not intended as a source
of municipal revenue, or an un
due tax or burden on the motor
ist, although many motorists do
abuse the privilege. But park
ing meters are a privilege, and
should so be considered by any
thinking car owner. Yet the
meter situation is viewed with a
jaundiced eye by the motorist,
who resents the necessity for
paying for parking privileges;
and the town officers zealously
overdo their job of policing the
meters, which aggravates the
overall situation. It seems to me
that if both police and motorist
were more tolerant of one an
other, and there were more give
and take between the two, the
meter situation would be better
and smoother operated to the
best advantage of all concerned.

You no doubt saw our brand

was a much-needed replacement
of the tattered but faithful Old
Glory that had served us well
for many years, but had become
so worn and wind-whipped it
had to be retired. “Old Oki

some reason I can’t explain the
flag reminded me of the famous
Marine flag-raising on the island
of Okinawa, during World War

one of the many incidents that
have made our flag the well
loved emblem of liberty and
America—and our country great.
So, when you see Old Glory
