Chicago Blitherings By Bill Danziger Otto Bolle, City Sales Supervisor, has -er, rather had—a new gas-eater. Through the deft accomplishment of stepping on both the accel- erator and the brake at the same time, Otto almost established a new “Manslaughter” rec- ord in the I. C. station. “Herb” Hayman, who insists that “East Side, West Side,” is the national anthem, now says he knows a hay-shaker so dumb that he thinks cross-eyes is a command. “Fevven’s sake!” Walter Hiers huffed and puffed his way around the local tepee while en route to Syra- cuse for a life sentence in matrimony. His chubbiness was lionized by the sweet things. Correct this sentence : “Nobody loves an obese male.” And the bowling tournament rambles along merrily. “Dinosaur” Goldberg appears certain of first place. He’s stopped speaking to every- body—except those that owe him money. Giddap thar, Napoleon! Gotta gang of ex- ploitation to do! Albany Bits MORE POWER TO BROTHER SCHMITT Congratulations were being buzzed around the office Monday of this week, for our hand- some Office Manager, Mr. John Schmitt, who just passed his second wedding anniversary. Mr. Moritz, the Branch Manager of Buffalo Exchange, dropped into our office for a little chat while waiting for trains to New York, for a business conference. HERE’S A GOOD ONE Friday evening—which was the fifth day of showing for “KNIGHTHOOD” in Troy, New York—a physician was called out of the audi- ence for a telephone call. The following con- versation was heard in the box office: Talking to the Nurse—“Say, Miss , didn’t I tell you not to call me? 1 have tried for four days and nights to get a seat to see this picture and now you call me—you will kindly give the hypodermic according to instructions and unless in case of death—PLEASE do NOT bother me.” Now I ask you—isn’t that nice?—Some pic- ture that can keep a physician from going to his patients. Hurrah—another mark for Para- mount.
