ONE BOY SHOT IN NEWSPAPER
CIRCULATION BATTLE
Vito Pantusco, 3323 Osgood, could
sell 40 Heralds at his news stand, Van
Buren and La Salle sts., but the driver
for Keeley's sheet insisted that he
take 125, he says.
Pantusco told the driver he could
not sell them and refused to "eat"
the papers just to build up Herald
circulation.
Then other newsboys, bigger than
Vito, started making trouble. They
beat him up and tried to ruin his bus
iness. Saturday night a bunch of
huskies stood around his stand, all
selling papers and shouting their pa
pers so loudly that customers paid no
attention to Pantusco's stand. Pan
tusco drew a gun and shot Myron
Minski, 1521 Newberry av., in the leg.
Pantusco and David Hartman, who
is said to have sided with Minski,
were arrested. A representative of
the Herald got Hartman's release on
bonds.
