MONDAY, APRIL 19, 1954 tipper Alton News ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH tot o?r too E?rt>s tf HtJrtfiD Little Tommy Wyhs of 22? Allen St. went on an egg horn Sunday in Rock Spring Part but somebody forgot to tell him that the searching area had boundaries. The four-year-old hunted and hunted eggs with a fair amount of success but wound up in a strange part of town and not a familiar face around. Mrs. George Wyhs, his mother, said the tot had gone to the park with three brothers and a sister. When the hunt started they became separated. Tommy remembers nothing of the hunting period. He went from bush to bush in search of eggs and when the eggs ran out the bushes didn't. He doesn't know at what point he became aware that the egg hunt was over and the hunt for him began. "He told us that he \vas standing some place and crying and a policeman came up and gave him a nickel and he told him his name and address and the officer told him which way was home." Mrs. VVyhs said. They believe this story except for the policeman. pA-erybody with a visored rap is a policeman to Tommy. Mrs. Wyhs said. Tommy got home about. 5 p.m." and he says he walked every hit of the way. From a description of this hike the family believes he must have brcn along K. Broadway. "He was uncertain about landmarks except for candy stores," Mrs. Wyhs said Tommy remembered seeing Kaster candy in a lot of windows. Thus, they reason, the route must have lain along E. Broadway. Which is a round-about way home for a boy who started hunting eggs in Rock Spring Park. At least when he got to K. Broadway, one - person commented, he knew the egg hunt was over. Not many bushes around there. nojf wiNsiiip is AT CAMP CIIAFFKE % Don Winship, who enlisted In 8-6641 the Army a few weeks ago. Is stationed at Camp Chaffee, Ark., undergoing basic training.

ORTS t4 FOOT" CASDT BAR TO HOttK IXTACT Miss Alma Tienwn of 1106 Rixon St. won the 14-foot-long candy bar in a Sunday school contest and because no one ; n Upper Alton ever before had owned a eandy bar of such size, a few questions w»«- in order. "How did you $rrt it home?" Miss Tieman was asKed. If you think about It awhile that's an Incisive question. You probably never again will see a young woman at a Sunday class faced with the* problem of lotion home a M-foot candy bar ft developed that Miss Tiemnn had come in an automobile. Rut that didn't solve everything. Consider the N feet. Fourteen feet of anything won't fit into the average-sized family car. You've seen folks returning from the house furnisher with n 14-foot- lonR roll of linoleum sticking out of their automobile. You've seen them in the same fix with a 14- foot-long piece of lumber, or Christmas tree. Hut a candy bar. Miss Tieman said It was simple enough ftfler they thought nbout it awhile. The candy bar was wrapped in tinfoil, bedecked in ribbons and mounted on a 14- foot plank. "\Ve slid the thing off the plank and toted it to the automobile," she said. They weren't sure If they had anything in mind up "to that point, but when they measured the candy bar against the car they knew that something drastic* would have to be done. They did it. They folded the candy bar in two and thus were able to cram the seven feet of It Into the auto. The prize \vns taken home, where It <vas reduced to bite size with a little regret. Such a phenomenon never again will be seen in these parts. It was like destroying a six legged cnt, or a watermelon that grew Into t he likeness of a man, or an apple tree that produced cherries. It may be the last of its kind. Miss Tieman won the prize by accounting for 22 persons attending the Sunday School at Edwards Street Assembly of God Church. The only question left was to nsk what a 14-foot candy bar lasted like. It was good, she said. Made out of marshmallow, YtCA Observing National Week With the theme "up RO to rhurrh. we go to school, \vp RO to work, we go to the YWOA- go with us." the local Association began the observance of National Young Women's Christian Association week today.

There wasn't much of a thrill to It A M-foot candy bar isn't anything to look at ome it is knocked to pieces. Everyone who ate some must feel a secret Riiilt today. T h e candy bar should have been preserved. Put In a glass case and exhibited some place for all of Upper Alton to see. Nobody expects to see another one nuain.
