Robinson Pines Man Over 60
Tears of Age Criti
"When a man has reached the age of
60 jrears, he Is privileged to get drunk
once In awhile." This rule was set
down by Tom Lea, judge of the corpora
tion court, when he took office and con
sequently it has been his custom to dis
miss all men over this age, arrested on
the charge of being drunk.
However, alderman W. F. Robinson, i
smashed the precedent this morning,
when, fining J. Hoi, nan. 62 years old, on
the charge of being drunk he said: "A
anan of your age should know better."
So the men who hae reached the age
of three score years had best await tha
return of judge Lea berore starting out
Judge Lea was called to Kansas City
Saturday night on account of the seri
ous illness of his father.
John H. Porter, a negro 72 years of
age, whose hair is streaked with gray,
was fined $3 in police court this morn
ing, but assistant city attorney Volne3r I
M. Brown called the court's attention to
the man's age and the fact that he had
been in police court but once before, so
olderman Robinson dismissed nun.
