I'm just waitin' around to see may still have their fatal charms, the fun." but a survey completed'Saturday jhe mo dern age of psychoanaly- among residents of the bowery in- s js tad its fingerprints on most of pendent housing area Post Tuesday night. A 150-pound safe containing $202 in cash, $091 in stamps and 119 money order blanks was taken from the building. Postal inspec- men said two men were seen in Office the building, but descriptions were not available. .-^§g| dicated they've lost their ability to drive men to drink. Twenty-five years ago this month an inquiring reporter roarned the street of forgotten men asking what put them there and most of the derelicts pointed a sentimental finger at eve. Four put of five said they'd sought oblivion after a siren lured and then scorned them. The present refugee from normal society has dozens of reasons for his flight and many are sidewalk experts who'd make Dr. Freud smile with understanding. But hard-hearted girls rank way down in sixth place among the excuses advanced by those under 50. The blighted romance gets popular again only among those over the half-century mark. The runaway dollar of these inflation times and the insecurity of a world striving for peace and seemingly headed for atomic war were advanced most often, with the tempo of modern life coming in a close third. .,' "I got caught in the war," explained Joseph Kolistch, "and I came out with not enough experience- and too much age. I kept getting jobs with punk kids eight years younger than me and the pay matched. How long could a guy stand it?" "This whole mess is too much to worry about," was the way grizzled Bill (Blinky) Sullivan put it. "You knock yourself in a basket and it's all going up in one big boom anyhow. As for dames, I the explanations offered for their failure by today's no-accounts. "I just didn't have enough self confidence," declared a soft-spoken, frowzily dressed man, who would only identify himself as a one-time attorney in Cincinnati. "My parents broke up when I was a kJd and I guess after that I always thought of myself as a second-class citizen. Now I am." The first romantic note in the survey was sounded by turning to the elder statesmen along one seedy bar under the Third Avenue El, "Hell, those burns are ju3t babies," rasped gray-bearded D. T. Ravechio. "The thing that matters t is whether you're with the woman you love. If you are, no problem is too'tough. If you aren't, nothing's worth taking serious." D. T., who explained his initials are a nickname, said he'd lost track of the girl of his dreams after he watched her jilt a second man who beat him out of the running. "That girl has a heart like a rock, but she was wonderful." he reflected. "Let's have a shot and I'll tell you all about her." Pitsburgh, Pa., has three navigable rivers within its boundaries —the Ohio, Monongahela and the Allegheny rivers. Peter Henlein, - a German locksmith, is believed to be the : ventor of the first watch nearly ashamed to say any of 500 years ago. ^1% More and More People Are Learning If Pays to Shop af [f BIG BOLT BAYTOWN'S OLDEST LIQUOR.
