Crate of oranges for Martin Lenson--1938
Promised Crate of Oranges Arrives Here Martin Lenson of this city was the recipient of a "huge" crate of delicious California "oranges". The oranges were sent by David Goodman, formerly the manager of a local theater, now located in Hollywood. Mr. Lenson was greatly surprised upon receipt of the gift and has been distributing oranges to his friends, being unable t0 use all of the large amount sent him. The oranges arrived in Altoona on Friday when Mr. Lenson was awakened at an early hour by a call from his office. "You'd better get down here," the message said. "There's a crate Of California oranges waiting for you." Mr. Lenson hurried to the office and inquired, "Well, where are the oranges?" "On the safe" replied his stenographer. . Hurrying to the safe Mr. Lenson was greatly surprised if not disappointed to see a little crate of candy oranges two by four inches marked with the inscription, "Here's the crate of California oranges I promised to ! send." Although Mr. Goodman has been visiting in California since October, the Golden Bear state must fall short of its publicized splen-dbr, as Mr. Goodman definitely picked Alabama to "star" in- the Rose Bowl game New Year's day.
