People on the streets about
9:30 Wednesday evening were
greeted by one of the strangest
processions that ever came down
the pike. Gasps of astonishment
were heard when it was first
sighted, followed by outbursts of
amusement and appreciation
when the object of the grotesque
turnout was fully realized. At
first glance it was difficult to de
termine whether it was a funer
al cortege or a ceremonial rite
procession in honor of some un
usual event. It is certain that
the advent f King Ilex at the
Hose Carnival presented no more
distracting appearance. It came
out of the south, and proceeded
down Jersey street to the cen
tral part of the city. Its coming
was heralded by strains of weird
and harmonious and otherwise
strains of music that startled and
then attracted people to the lino
of approach. In the lead and
acting in the capacity of drum
major was C. C. Currin, and di
rectly behind came a long striug
of individuals, some with musi
cal instruments. The hand of
each was connected to a long
rope, and on the extreme end of
the rope a two wheeled vehicle
was attached. And it was some
vehicle. It had a sort of cage on
the top which was plastered with
placards of divers descriptions,
and on the rear of the strange
irnlifnln uma itiRPiMlinrl in lnrirn
letters: "I am the victim." Vt Inline hnrnitiirD
The queerest sight of all was in- JU ilUIIIU 1 ui imui v
side the cage. It could bo seen
that the figure ' of a man was
crowded therein, attired in a
headgear of the "vintage" of
17-12, and a compromise between
a clonic tnai won 11 migni nave
worn in the ark ami a bath robe.
Upon closer investigation the
smiling countenance of Harry
Truman was revealed. It then
dawned upon the crowd that it
was Harry's wedding night, and
that the ceremonial event was
irotten un bv reason of his hav
ing deserted the ranks of The
Bachelors to join the vast army
of Honed lets, and that his re
cent club associates were thus
performing the impressive cere
mony incidental to Harry's de-
