Debate in Elizabeth N.J. over Ice Cream Vendors' Bells

Aug. 22, 1961 - The tinkling bells of the mobile ice cream vendor are sweet music compared with other noises of an industrial city, the Elizabeth, N.J., City Council was told today. The council is considering a measure to impose an 8 p.m. curfew on the wagons and forbid them from coming within 500 feet of schools and other public buildings. John T. Glennon, a lawyer who represents independent ice cream and pizza salesmen, was the man who found chime-like beauty in their bells and argued against the measure. Saul J. Zucker, a lawyer for the Good Humor Corporation, suggested that the council change the curfew to 10 p.m.
