NORMAN GETS GOOD SOAK
Norman Redd, colored, is a
"performer" at Riverview Park.
Sits on a plank suspended over
a tub of water and waits until
some accurate thrower hits a
bull's-eye attached to the 'plank
with a baseball, dropping Nor
man into the tub.
In the pursuit of his occupation
it is his duty to jeer at the
throwers, accusing them of hav
ing glass arms, poor eyes and
other infirmities. Norman is one
of the park's best little jeerers.
Last night after he was through
"performing" he blew down town,
finally reaching the corner of
31st and State streets. He an
chored on the corner. Then Nor
man began to yell. Also Police
man J. Williams, colored, happen
ed along about this time.
"Ya, ya, can't hit me," jeered
"Stop that whoopin' and hoi-
lerin' and go on home, nigger,"
ordered the colored copper.
"Never touched me. Missed
me a mile," howled the diver.
"Man, there's goin' to be trou
ble here if you don't shut up and
beat it," warned the policeman.
