Was talking to Patrolman Stewart
one day this week and he said that,
one of the funniest sights he had
seen lately was at M E&.Dajls
house. Early last Sunday morning
you recall how cold it was four
men from Cherry Potpt and one
lady were riding around the curve
near his home, ran off the road and
their car went into the brancB and
was completely submerged by wa
ter. They were all InelQr enough to
eat out unhurt and swim to the
bank They ware s& wet and cold
that they walked up to Paul Ed's
house to get help.
Paul Ed and Celia with their us
ual hospitality took them in. gave
them dry clothes to wear while
they washed and dried the Clothes
that the young people, wer* wearing
Well all of you who know the site
of Paul Ed will know what I am
talking about. 1 would guess he tips
the scale somewhere between 240
and 300 The boys in the accident
Were all small.
This was where SteypM* came in.
Jft aaid when he walked. to,apd sp?
ail of those boys wrapped u? in
fLd Ed's pants,, it was a sight to
behold. He said he knew that eVety
bttt of the tour boys could have got
'tte into the same pair.
? ;A young man was in the office
tills morning who works with young
boys Jb many, many circumstances.
His heart was bleeding for a young
boy Who had gotten into trouble. He
said to me "Miss Ruth, If I could
I Just get it across to my boys not to
get their feet muddy the first time,
life would bo so much better for
them. But once they get the mud on
their fleet, they get blamed fttf so
much that they don't do, that they
think the world Is pushing them
dbwn all of the time.' How true that
Statement is! How guilty we adults
