Scrap Being Stolen: The Useless Tire
From the November 19, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
"Collection depots placed around the city of DeKalb seem to be experiencing trouble with petty thieves. One crate which has been installed on Fourth Street, similar to the one in front of city hall has had several large pieces of junk deposited in it and later found to be missing.
"One person deposited a worn out tire in the container and while it was left out overnight, someone helped himself. The tire is worthless as far as use is concerned, and it is believed that some youngster took it and sold it to a dealer in scrap for some "show money."
