Michael Harvey's daddy died 13 months ago and the very last gift to his young son was a pint-size bicycle. It was stolen Oct. 22 from Michael's front porch. It goes without saying that under the circumstances there's no chance of replacing it or giving a re- vard. Have you seen the bike? It's around somewhere, in possession of probably the year's meanest thief. It would help a lot of you \nlked to the nearest telephone and called police. should you know of Its whereabout;:. The bicyde is a J. C. Hi?gins 24-mcher and has been welded at the cro?s bars. Two ne\v tires are on It and it's painted red.
