several aq;.us'ng stories of the time
whea h - was first starting In the tha
atr'cal bnslness. The following is pna
ol the beet: "I was with a small com
pany playing In tho middle west ana
being only a youngster I was always
telling how well off my parent3 aro
dd c! a wanted. to be 'in right" with
all the company I gave them a supper
t-J wired my father for the money to
psy for it, so he sent me $75.00. I
got the money and that afternoon went
to a ball game, and although I was jos
tled quite a bit I thought nothing of
it as it is nothing extraordinary. Thnt
tveninj. aft r the supper I went to
pay the bill and. imagine my surpi lBt
to find my money gone. Well, the
manager had to pay for the dinner and
believe me, everyone In the company
laughed th?lr hardest and won't to this
day believe I had the money to pay
and think it was all a bluff."
