Woman Begs for 25 Years to Save $490 OMAHA (UP) — For 25 years, Mrs. Lydia Mclntyre was a familiar figure on Omaha streets where she begged nickels and dimes. People came to think that she was destitute, but when she dted she was buried with her own money. She was found to have a 5-S90 bank deposit, insurance policies for about" the same amount and a houseful of things, including a 575 fur coat. Mrs. Mclntyre was a plain, drab figure dressed in a thin brown coat and carrying a shopping bag. Pedestrians were started when she sidled up and fairly whispered: "Could you give me a nickel or a dime for a cup of coffee." A lodger at her home said Mrs. Mclntyre made more money than any other Omaha panhandler. Her appearance of worn respectability was her chief asset. Perhaps Mrs. Mclntyre would have had more money, but she liked to go on parties and she always insisted on paying her share. Before going out she would dig into an old trunk in her room and bring out a handful of small coins, mostly nickels nnd dimes. • Aesop created the idea for the emblem on.the American dime. The moral of many of his slories w "In union there is strength." The bakers of New York City were the first employes to go oh strike 1 in America. Tlie strike occurred In 1741. In those early days, strikers were treated as conspirators, but convictions 'seldom were obtained..
