NO MORE SPOONING IN TOMBS
New York, Aug. 2. Great is the
sorrow among sentimental men pris
oners in the T.ombs. Commissioner
Davis has spent several thousands of
dollars in constructing cells to en
force a decree which will mean:
No more holding hands with wom
No more kissing between bars.
No more spooning in any form.
If you do not believe there has
been such behavior ask Warden Han
ley. Merely because a man had been
committed to a Tombs cell did not
mean that he could not spend many
pleasant hours with his lady love. The
only change was that she had to call
on him, breaking the laws of eti
quette. She could stay for an hour some
times longer and the mere fact that
the prisoner was behind a barred
door lid not prevent some of them
from imagining they were on a
Coney Islanl boat, with the full moon
making the deck just light enough,
but not too light ,
