THE TECHITE 1927 -+4h."5.13 , 55 CW+- tention was arrested by an enormous poster advertising Pat Marshall's Wild West Show, with star performers in Orin Blandford and Paul Fel- lows. Knowing of their previous experience on F Street we were not surprised at their excelling at this profession. We had not walked far before we came upon another comrade of our stay at high school, Sam Shaffer, with his clerk, Harry Davidson, standing in front of his second- hand clothing store. After exchanging a few words with them, we again started, only to be brought to a stop by the sign over an imposing array of edibles, Daniel Galotta, Fruit Dealer. Thinking that we might chance on some former acquaintances of Tech days, we bent our steps toward F Street. On our way up, we passed that well-known beauty shoppe of Charles Marcellino, who is assisted by Helen O'Neil in attempts to help Washington ladies in their search for beauty. We passed on toward F Street, but our way soon became blocked with traffic, and it was only with great difficulty that we pushed ourselves far enough forward to see the cause of the trouble. Deaf to all horns, Traffic Policeman Augie Terneak was busily engaged in cranking the new Ford of Eleanor Stutler, the well known authoress of the popular novel, The Answer to a Maiden's Prayer, and also False Dictionaries. Standing beside him telling him just how to do it, was Herman Bretler, Chief Street Car Inspector. After a good deal of persuasion, generally necessary with Fords, it started. We also started on, minus the persuasion, but hardly had we taken a dozen steps before our way was again blocked. We saw a familiar figure whom we realized was Jack Martin just descending from his 24-cylinder Packard to appear in the matinee performance of Why Women Leave Holme. On the same bill is Alvin Thaden, who is famous for his melodious syncopa- tions on his uke. In the crowd we noticed Grace Moomaw, who has had plenty of excitement in her life since she married Robert Horne, the Hu- man Fly. On the outskirts of the crowd we also distinguished the dare- devil, wild western movie actor, Stanley Tenny. Standing close beside him was Frank Kelly, who having held the record of never having been early for section while at school, is fitted perfectly for his present profes- sion of making Ingersoll watches. In the crowd, too, was Robert Riley, and Edwin Seaton, captain and first mate of the popular Charles Mac- alester. As we made our way out of the crowd another sign bearing these words caught our eye, "Gertrude Louis, Exponent of All Kinds of Aesthetic Dancing." As we p-assed by we saw Gertrude's assistant, Hazel Smith, teaching Barbara Stacy to toe dance. Just at that moment a clanging bell claimed our attention. Up dashed an ambulance, and out of it, as wide awake- and alert as he ever was at Tech, stepped Fred Kalhoun, the doctor. Close behind him to be ready in case of emergency was the firm of undertakers, Voshall and Gotthardt. However, they were cheated of some trade as Kalhoun fixed up the casualty all right. A little farther down the street we ran into Judge Harry Booth, who has charge of the Juvenile Court. The Judge told us that Jack Hall was a successful and rapidly rising physician, due probably to the fact that only eight out of the last twelve patients had died on his hands. The other four saw his new nurse. Helen Smith, and improved wonderfully after that. Harry told us. too, that James Clough had made a lot of crooked dough, he was a pretzel Page 10 8
