Fun On The Subway

Roy Walling of “Lilies of the Field” had a seat in the subway train yesterday when two girls carrying ice skates entered the car. Mr. Walling arose and immediately offered them his seat.

“No, thank you!” came from one of the girls. “We expect to sit down later.”

“Why?” asked the actor, innocently. “Aren’t you good skaters?”

As he left the car the guard whispered, “You made a sort of fuss pass with them gals, didn’t you?”
