At one house, the 74-year-old veep told a woman; "I'm delivering your copy of the» Pfiducrm Sun-Democrat this af- tcrnon niul Inking subscriptions —in advance." The woman thanked him but said she was paid up until about the first o[ .January. Burl-Joy promised to return then. -I'm golny to be out of n job the first of the year anya-ay." A hi«h school girl dashed across the street witli a notebook, "Do you give autographs?" she nskrcl with a smile. "Whnl do I i;et if r do?" asked Bai-kley In return. "Oh, maybe a kiss." The bait was successful. That was the vice president's only reward for his work. Itc had agreed io carry the newspapers In tribute to the nation's newsboys since this is National Newspaper Week.
