JIMMY'S WILLlN' TO PAY YOU
BjACK CAN YOU HELP HIM?
All Jimmy needs is somebody to
buy him clothes, but, hully gee, he
needs that bad. His big sister and
his brother-in-law give Jimmy a
home in the very humble frame cot
tage in which they live and they sat
isfy his craving for grub, but they
aren't in a position to clothe him.
Last year good Samaritan took
care of Jimmy, but this is another
year, and a kid can't make his clothes

But she cannot now, and Jimmy'3

that line. And he cannot go around
in this weather with his birthday
But if somebody would like to play
tailor to a boy who is 9, but wears
14-size clothes, Jimmy's last name is
Higgins and he lives at 524 Hartland
