THE CONCORDIAN, 1954
Elsewhere in these pages, the CONCORDIAN tells the story of reporter Pat Cleary’s investigation into the matter of the abandoned foundations as well as the common dump nearby.
But for the very reason that Mr. Siegel comes out second best in our story, we feel it important to emphasize that one valid point he did make: that the actions and activities of our youngsters are our responsibility. This is not one whit less true despite the foundations which shouldn’t be there, despite the fact that 20 is plenty.
We of the CONCORDIAN will not forget Mr. Siegel’s foundations, nor will we forget the 20 is plenty. We intend to keep reminding Mr. Siegel and all Concord Village drivers of those two things. But until the foundations are made safe; until all our motorists are disciplined — and even after — you and you alone, as parents, can make certain that your child doesn’t become the cause celebré of a tragic accident.
Thank You, Gentlemen
In recent issues, the CONCORDIAN has had occasion to point with mixture of disappointment and anger to what appeared to be the indifference of town officials to the obvious danger of children and untended fires, one official said, quite simply, “Tell the children to keep away.”
