Our esteemed townsman and friend, Dan McNeil, St., made us a call on Tuesday afternoon, and as he was all dressed up we asked the reason why. "Reason enough," says Dan, "I'm celebrating my ninety-first birthday anniversary." And you'd never think it to look at him for he's as spry as most men many years his junior, and he can still crack a joke or dance a jig and enjoy both of them. He has always lived a plain, simple life, and was never intemperate in anything except hard work, which no doubt has a lot to do with the splendid physical condition he now enjoys at a time of life when .most people would be unable to get about at all. Congratulations, Dan, and may you be with us to kick the lid off the century mark; as you know the first hundred years are the hardest.
