No Sunday Sliding Now

Mayor Says Would-Be Slider Would Be Better In Uniform

Mayor Church to-day received a letter from a “A Canadian-American,” suggesting that the civic toboggan slides should be opened on Sunday. “There is such a thing as being too good,” he writes. “Pretty soon we won’t be allowed to walk on the streets on Sunday.” “You don’t intend to take that up, Mr. Mayor,” queried The Star. “Not in war time. This fellow would look better in uniform than sliding on Sunday. He’s probably a German-American,” said his Worship.
