From the pages of the Crescent City American, January 1932.
Sometime during the night of Dec. 24, someone borrowed the siren off the police car, and as yet they have failed to return it.
Chief of Police Robinson states that he knows several boys around the city that are capable of playing such a prank, but that he expects them to return the siren within a few days, as it can be of absolutely no use to them.
Whoever took the siren could not use it themselves, nor could they see it, as they would have a hard time finding a buyer, in the first place, and then the buyer would demand to know how it came into their possession.
Cupid shirking duties
While 1930 showed a total of 34 marriage licenses issued during the year, five less than the year before, 1931 records only 32 marriages.
This proves that in Del Norte County love-lorn couples are rapidly on the decrease or are going out of the county to escape the five-day waiting period.
