Pages of HIstory: Me and my ‘bum friend’ get rejected

From the pages of the Crescent City American, March 1931.

During the past few days the delegates from the Crescent City Fire Department, on the “eats committee,” have been soliciting salads, cakes, sandwiches or what have you for the Firemen’s Annual Ball.

It happened that “Belvey” Wagner and one of his friends were on a team to solicit “eats” in a certain section of the city.

At one of the houses at which they called, the lady of the house mistook them for a couple of bums and slammed the door in their face, saying that she did not have anything for them. The friend was the one that made the alarm at the door while Belvey stayed out in the street. The boys of the fire department are now wondering if the madam did not see Belvey over the friend’s shoulder, and thereby made up her mind on the status of the case.
