the Porkie place, 24th and Blondo
when a fire started around the
stove 'pipe. He was just going
home when Mrs. Higgdon had a fire
in her house. But a neighbor n
cross the street had seen it first
and called the fire department.
Nevertheless, the reporter manag
ed to get around more or less in
the way, getting- his feet wet and
catching a fresh cold trying to be
a 'helpful Henry.' And last week
this same reporter was on hand
when Sloan Apartment caught on
fire.... and got wet. and caught a
fresh cold. Heah. it’s getting to i
be a habit!

Old Men’s Club ....
A number of the ‘old Boys’ have
formed what they call The Old
Men’s Club which meets every
Sunday afternoon around a table
in The Champion Lunch Room and
Beer Tavern, 24th and Patrick St.
There they buy rounds of drinks
and live over the days gone by and
tell of their exploits when they
were gay young blades and had n
lot more on the ball.
As the drinks keep flowing it is
reasonable to presume that the
stories and incidents become more
enlivened and dramatic. Those in

Now this may not be the case
in regards to this specific club.
But anyone who has been telling

were being passed around, surely
hasn't failed to notice the sudden
changes in them if told again after
