BRIGGS & BRIGGS FEATURES NEW 'BURGLAR-ALARM SUITE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Alarmed by what they thought was a burglar alarm ringing in front of the window of Briggs & Briggs on Massachusetts Avenue, inhabitants of lanky Wigglesworth Hall flocked to their windows last night to investigate and found that it was a burglar alarm ringing in front of the window of Briggs & Briggs on Massachusetts Avenue opposite Wigglesworth Hall.

It had been set in sound, either (a) by a burglar, who for a considerable period after the crime amused passersby in back of the store by flicking on and off the light in four-four time and knocking over chairs as accompaniment while he was waiting for a chance to escape, or (b) by mistake.

Meanwhile authorities admired the alarm in front and marvelled at modern science, finally notifying the owner to come and turn it off.
