As evening approached and preparations for the homeward trend were made Bert uncovered the minnows and turned them over the aide of the boat to freedom. Before they had time to Kwim out of sight wall-eyes came forward arid grabbed them while the astonished Bert did nothing but look and, of course, think, but not out loud. • * * Hodgepodge in the Advance thin Week wrote sort of a confessional. Admitting three dinners free by a gambling device installed thi.s year at Kiwanian meeting is shocking even to one who has seon the worst of life.
