Did Not See the Show
A near April fool joke which might
have proven' fatally happened to two
young Nehawka lads last Friday
evening. One of the boys borrowed
his papa's car !o run into Nehawka.
about a mile distant to attend the
play, "My Uncle from Japan." given
by the Murray Community club, but
rearing the big bridge just south of
town, they thought of two fair maid
ens in or near Union that might want
to see them, or the play, and hither
thev bound. The nearer they ap
proached Union, the more excited
they became and the more gas they
used and the faster they went. How
ever, they arrived safely, and after
the necessary greetings and datings
made, they proceeded to return, to
Nehawka to attend the play, but alas
the car refused to handle the load
and upon examination they found the
rear bub broken, and the car had to
be towed into the garage at Union
for repairs. The joke was that they
did not get to see the play, nor take
the fair maidens a spin, but were
compelled to walk around and watch
the mechanics work until the wee
snu ll hours of April fool morning.
Luckily the accident happened when
it did and not when the fast run was
being made to Union.
