The Sandwich men and women continued in diminished numbers to ply their unique occupation after a police order against them went out. Some took off the sandwiches and carried their placards on poles held above the Heads of passing pedestrians. I saw one old Man thin and dry As a Mummy and a he secy woman with red hair pacing their accustomed beats on forty second Street near Broadway throughout the period of Sandwich prohibition. No policeman disturbed them. Justice Phillip Mccook put an end to the prohibition after a couple of weeks of uncertainty. He told the mayor that if strike pickets Are permitted to carry Sandwich signs the poor Folk who tote the ads of pass port photo shops and pawnshops must not be denied the same right. The town approves the ruling of the Justice though the mayor won t be Happy until he can achieve his ends. He will think up some Way of harass ing the sign carriers. Or. Laguardia abolished the Organ Grinders and the town has been senti mentally sad about their going. They were harmless and furnished a traditional atmosphere. So with the Sand wich men and women.
