From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1942.
Charles G. “Punk” Roy says there ain’t no justice. He has been ordered to “move on” again.
He says he began getting pushed around 10 years ago when he was in the second-hand business in Crescent City. The town passed an ordinance against him, relegating him to the city dump. There he thrived for six years, when his presence attracted other settlers, who, when they had built their homes, pulled strings to get Roy moved out again.
So he went two miles out into the brush on Highway 199 and started his business all over again. He thought surely he would be safe from the maddening crowd this time. But recent events prove his popularity is still great. Nice homes have followed “Punk” Roy, pioneer; and his neighbors want to move him out again. Worst of all, they want to move him out with a bulldozer this time.
