Where is Toronto? - Even Toronto Heard Story C h 1 1 1 i w a ck's...
Even Toronto Heard Story C h 1 1 1 i w a ck's "championship" cherry pie eating contest July 1 hit the front pages of The Toronto Star recently, with a special article concerning the victory of Mayor J. P. McCammon of Paris over his nephew, Chilliwack's Mayor Theo. McCammon. Complete with a picture of "the champ," The Star had the following story via its Brantford cor - reapondent: . Mayor J. P. McCammon of Paris, Ont., has been crowned the new cherry pie - eating champion of Canada, or at least that part of it centering about Chilliwack, B.C., where, with no holds barred, he whipped B.C. cabinet ministers and his nephew, Mayor Theodore Mc Cammon of Chilliwack. Men of Mayor McCammon'i town, while shouting bravos, are inclined to think that somebody held back a little to let their chief magistrate, who perhaps is the smallest chief magistrate in Can ada (he weighs about 96 pounds) take the title. He is not much higher than a cherry pie, the deep cherry pie, that is, that theV make in British Columbia. "I won," said Mayor McCammon in a letter back home, "and it was a lot of fun." "Without too much modesty, Mayor McCammon reported the pie - eating competition went on "on the main stage" with practically all Chilliwack looking on; but he said he never batted an eye as he lit into the pie with full vigor. Chief hazards were errant pits he hit every now and then. These he rid himself of like a machine - gun spitting bullets." Mayor McCammon of Chilliwack received the news of his uncle's front page burst in a communication from T. P. Knight, 197 Laugh - ton avenue, Toronto. Mr. Knight enclosed clippings for the inayoi's perusal. wl,"'"T""t?
