City Electrician Appeals For Parents Aid City Electrician Duane Woffinden Woff-inden is voicing an appeal to all citizens of Lehi to aid in preventing prevent-ing the breakage of street light globes that has been occuring in the past. A number of streets have been without lights numerous times, due to youngsters throwing objects at them, he stated. Cooperation of , parents and others in educating the youngsters to preservation of public property is asked to save the community expense, inconveniences, and loss due to this carelessness. Replacement globes are , still scarce, he points out, and are often difficult, if not impossible, to ob tain. He also calls attention to the fact that a number of discharged shells have been found in the vicinity of the new substation north of the rodeo grounds. Shooting at, or tampering with, the lines or fittings fit-tings at the sub-station is an extremely ex-tremely dangerous sport, as high voltages are used in the wires. Children and others are warned to keep away for their own protection. protec-tion. , .
