•• TWENTY EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, Phone 4600; for a WANT AD Taktr Along Broadway = By JACK O'BIUAN: > NEW YORK—When recently •."noted In this space that the fane .^saloons of the fancy side of Man 'hattar. meaning the East Side most ",1y. were pretty i '.. about thel clientele, several W. • asked 'th 'rules these saloon keepers set ' •for entry to their gaudy premises, • fumed out, after asking severa .;'of them, none woulu be acted. All -however, were insistent on one rea '.ton.- They liked "nice" people in •their pubs. As to what constitutes a ."nice" person, somi, of them were irather vague. 7; "If. the important men come in •the ladies come .along," one said •^"ITie places where glamorous mal tinovle stars convene also is the place "the pretty ladies of the movies wil follow. And where the famous folk converge, so also do the newspapermen like yourself. And where the •newspapermen hang out, the glam- -orous tidbits get printed and the places which make the best glam' ',orous newspaper copy . are reac •about and attended by that'many inore 'nice' people. See?" •> Getting'back to our composite -pub crawling, the acceptable one of course, usually is a person of means .'out for a good time and has enough •money In his pocket to gratify his -happy wishes. - He's either a • r jve star, movie Executive, stage producer or actor, or •corporation executive with a few "extrovert whims. He doesn't neces- 'sarlly have to be in the Social Tveglster, but it helps. He must -be a gentleman who wears clean linen, good suits (dark) U pressed, and he go s home early—for Broadway— •»l/out one a. ra. He almost never gets silly while drinking and NEVER gets drunk. When one • of these 1 'nice' fallows- becomes a troublesome drunk, he no longer 's nice and thereafter is 'barred from the pre-. mises, except in extreme cases. The "extreme" cases are men so im- portant'they could "upen a bandleader and drop Vn'm down a manhole and nothing would be done: These include politicians whose municipal importance might cause them to toss a little weight among the- city folks with whom owners do business; state officials who might cause a little corporate uneasiness for the gin mill. crowned heads; and national politicians, judges of any court whatsoever, and a few movie executives who might suggest their, stars stay out of a certain deadfall. • So far as I can see, being a millionaire doesn't necessarily open any of these saloon doors.
