bear. Couple of old fat fellows
wdre traveling in a little Public
Bus up. in the north of England
from one town to another. At another
atop four others got in and
very one of them happened to be
big, broad, strong fellow. Mow
the Bus was only supposed to hold
boot six or at the outside seven
normal persona, so further along in
rets little, slender, weaeled-up
' follow, but there is no. place to sit,
but he started to try and wedge
his way back onto the cushion ber
"? tween a couple of them. A big
fat fellow on his right didnt show
any inclination to nelp him with
a single inch of room. Finally the
little fellow lost his temper, and
turning to the fat Party said, "I
think you are occupying more than
your share of room. There la an
act of Parliament allows every individual
in England 80 inchea of
bus space, Sir.
