TOO LONG AT TAVERN Good Samaritans Put in Wrong Home GLENDORA His friends decided Tuesday night that John H. Corson had been in his favorite tavern too long They decided to lake him home. Only trouble was, nobody knew for sure where John lived. So they looked up the Corson address in the tele- phone book. And that, according to sheriff's officers, is where the fun began. No one was at home when the party arrived and the front door was locked. Never mind, the bedroom window was open. SO HIS FRIENDS entered, carrying Corson, and de- posited him on the bed. That's where Charles C. Corson found John H. Corson a short while later. Charles C. Corson, 38, resented John H. Corson, 56 and no relation being in his bed. He called the sheriff's office. John H. Corson was booked on suspicion of being drunk. No charges were filed against his well-meaning Mends. HE SET THE DOCTOR STRAIGHT Hospitalized for the first time in his 101 years at Hunlington, W.
