Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - March 17, 1935, Racine, Wisconsin
Urges Shorter phone conversations dear editor my pet Peeve is Why do some housewives who have Access to their any time during the Day insist in doing their visiting Over them Between 6 00 and v so Oclock evenings during those hours is about the Only time that of Dee employee teachers and those a a played otherwise have to use their telephones and where there e e four parties on one line it in t Only one of the other three who is anxious to use the line but Fie it Quern in another receiver can be Beard taken Down during the time one listens in time and again while this lengthy visit is going on. To see if the line is Clear. It also deprives those on other lines from getting in touch with friends on these lines with whom they cant get in touch v ii h during the Day. I do not think it is necessary to limit ones conversations to Only a few minutes when there is no one else desiring to use the line but in the other Bard. I do tint see that there is any Courtesy being shown in discontinuing a conversation so others can use the line after a 2it to minute t be of the line has elapsed. I.

Tell me w Here a he it a m to Quot Center to dogs Are again subject of complaint dear editor of there Ever was a Peeve Beres one and one of the neighbors. We have a dog Parade around Here by see m. See a a result of the publication of tile picture of the Racine a thle ties to football team in the sunday bulletin of feb. 2 4. I have been Given information which throws Light on a new Yolk mystery Man a philanthropist who has posed the past three it ars As a or. ?� he is none other than Al r. Rodway a member of the footballs team which thrilled thousands at the old exposition grounds As Well As when that team played in the paddock of the Concrete bicycle track in the Southwest part of the City. Or. Redway came Here from Milwaukee and has a sister living there. Lie often stops off Here when lie goes to visit her. For several years he was employed As private Secretary to Charles Armstrong i let president of tile s. C. J Johnson it son company in the office of tile old ase plow works. He later moved to Chicago where he became private Secretary to the late p. I Armour founder of Armour a to and then was appointed manager of one of that company s Large Branch House. In later years he had been engaged in the brokerage business in new York City meeting Success and failure in turn but he is now at the Peak of his business career. Proves True Optimist. Throughout the depression years a or. Glad has been doing philanthropic work among the poor of the Metropolis. A through and through Optimist he has held his Chin up after having lasted disaster through loss of his Busine but be again has come through with colors flying. All new York is talking of a or. Glad to and his activity but Only a few of his closest friends know his real identity. All of the metropolitan newspapers in that City have lauded his work and some of the Ablest ministers have hailed him from their pulpits is a rehabilitate or of the first water. They concede that others have been known to do As he had been doing the last few years but he is lauded because he has made no Effort a to gain publicity. He has set out As a Benefactor to the unemployed. He has Given Many of them another grip on if and brought Hope to those who could see no rift in the Clouds of depression. Fed poor or hundreds. Thanksgiving Day never went by wit bout a cheering word from a or. ?� the new York papers say and Long lines of men passed before him As he served hot Coffee and Rolls gave out mittens and gloves and topped it All off by presenting each with a Nickel. Some of the men spent their Nickels Riding Street cars from one end of the City to the other to be out of the void. Others purchased apply and in the accompanying picture can be seen an unemployed a dapple Many enjoying a lucrative Busine. M ords of cheer accompanied to a it and on a card eve a to each Roan in lire was the following message a cheer up. Brother every Cloud Hollywood it s a Short professional life and a highly competitive one that the child film notable lives. And the baby stars rarely come Back. When they lose their cunning dimples and grow Long legged and ungainly and their baby Teeth go the Way of All ivories they tre through. Exceptions Are few with Madge plans and Sally Blane being the striking examples that come to mind. Ten years is a Long stretch for most of the Young phenoms to survive. Mickey Rooney at la has done it. Dickie Moore starting when Only a year old. Still is going Strong drawing his $250 week at 9. Some vanish quickly. Pome last four to six years. Others rocket into the Cinema sky Only to drop like plummets in their first or second year out. Try a guessing game with your friends to see How Many child wonders of Fie to or a dozen years ago they can name. Many of them would no to get past Jackie Coogan and babe Peggy. That to How fleeting Fame is in the flickers. There to tragedy mingled with the careers of Many of the baby stars who would no to give up but had to. When child stars of the films pass out of the picture they usually a malay ?� but a few of them come Back in adult years and one of the shining examples is Madge Evans shown above in a fetching pose As she is today at 2 5. And As she appeared when she was a kid Headliner Back in 191$.
