McCullough McCullough and the Rev, Joseph A. McDonald stepped into the street j after watching the parade from ! the second story of a building, a shower of confetti greeted them. On the subject of confetti, a man selling the bits of colorful i paper near Charlotte street said he came to town to sell the 150 pounds he had in his possession. The stuff, he said came from a confetti factory at Chicago. The price—five cents a bag. Mrs. Richard Kelley 162 North Manatawny street, leaned far out from her perch at a third floor window to "see what was coming next,” Bud Steiner, Jimmy O'Dell, Jerry j Bewley and other members of the , Varsity club found the ledge run- I ning below the clubroom windows! an ideal spot from which to view the passing promenade. Genevieve Slider, Beech street blonde, watched her chance and ! immediately following the last of the parade dashed across the street to catch a friend. Helen KirkhofT, Stowe, had trou- Tenth Ward Democratic Rally ble keeping her hat on while shov- j ing her way through a crowd. Mildred Shinehouse, 40 West j Third street, jumped back a few j steps and shrieked when a cater- j pillar entry made a dash toward her.

When the young women, who appeared appeared to be fugitives from a nudist camp, strolled by, one chap expressed expressed concern that they might catch cold. More than one person screamed, when the Birdsboro Boy Scouts hidden hidden in the "monster” came at them. The witch used to prefer a broom to get around. In these modern days, she switched to roller skates, as was evident in the parade. All the king’s horses clooped down the street. Inside of them were Norristowfn men and at the head T H A N K S !
