DEADLOCK ON BEEPERS

The city Board of Supervisors deadlocked on a proposal to bar youngsters from carrying beepers, a device often used by drug dealers.

The board Monday voted 5-5 on the proposal and planned to take it up again in three weeks. The ban needed six votes.The proposed ordinance would make it a crime for anyone under 18 to carry a beeper without written consent from parents, a doctor or an employer.
