75 Years Ago – 1943: Trib­ute to the McCaf­fery broth­ers – Lt.. Col. Joseph P. and Lt. Col. Hugh McCaf­fery, both of whom gave their lives in ser­vice of their coun­try – was paid by Karl E. Agan, prin­ci­pal of Ch­ester High School and for­mer in­struc­tor at Penn­syl­va­nia Mil­i­tary Col­lege, at the se­nior chapel at the high school this morn­ing. “This morn­ing in Ch­ester there is one woman who has given all she had for her coun­try,” he said, re­fer­ring to Mrs. Mar­ion V. McCaf­fery, of Ninth Street and High­land Av­enue, mother of the two he­roes.

50 Years Ago – 1968: Thou­sands of Delaware County res­i­dents learned Fri­day they will have to pay per­sonal prop­erty taxes on their stocks, bonds, mort­gages they hold, bank loans and other se­cu­ri­ties. Joseph E. Wick­er­sham, di­rec­tor of the Per­sonal Prop­erty Tax Bureau, told news­men the per­sonal prop­erty tax re­quire­ments have been law for years, and es­ti­mated that fewer than 15,000 of the 104,000 per­sons who re­ceived the no­tices have ever paid the so­called “honor tax.”

25 Years Ago – 1993: A 30-year-old fa­ther – who got his buddy to give blood in a vain at­tempt to dis­prove pa­ter­nity – pleaded guilty yes­ter­day to ob­struc­tion of jus­tice. The Ch­ester man, of the 900 block of East 14th Street, was sen­tenced by Judge Harry Bradley to one to 12 months in jail to be served on week­ends. The man’s at­tor­ney said later that he ad­mit­ted he is the fa­ther of the

2-year-old and is now pay­ing sup­port and has vis­i­ta­tion rights.

10 Years Ago – 2008: Re­turn­ing to the scene of the crime is some­times com­mon for crim­i­nals and this sus­pect war­ranted the ti­tle of “world’s dumb­est,” by po­lice. A 50-year-old Philadel­phia man was ar­rested in Up­per Darby for al­legedly steal­ing six lot­tery tick­ets af­ter re­turn­ing to cash in a win­ning ticket. “This guy’s the world’s dumb­est crim­i­nal,” po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent Michael Chit­wood said. “He steals six $25 lot­tery tick­ets and two days later comes back to cash in one win­ning ticket. We found the other tick­ets taken in his pocket.”
