NO WONDER SOME PEOPLE DO
NOT BELIEVE INfSIGNS
Sweet 'are the uses of adversity
Hkewiise faked fire' exits.
If you, go to Kresge's 5 and 10 cent
store, 12 South State street, and go
downstairs into the shipping room,
you will see a nice door in the rear.
f Over the door is a big sign, "Dan
ger.' Wo. do not know what this sign
fefer&'ta or was meant to refer to,
But we can realize how true it might
I Underneath the "Danger" sign is
another ..reading, ""Do Not Block

'.'It's a fire exit," he said, "but we
never have used it."
The reported went to L. R. Steele,
manager of the store. He. found Mr.
Steele in a pensive mood.. The re
porter asked about the door.
"What door?" asked Steele.
"The one In the rear of your ship
ping room," said the reporter.
"Oh, that door!" said Steele, "why
that door is just an entrance to our
stock room, that's all that door is."
"Funny signs you put over your
entrances to stock rooms," suggested
"Eh?" said Steelewhat signs?"
"Why the ones over that door,"
said the reporter. "One reads "Dan
ger," the other,."Do Not Block Exits,"
just like the signs over a fire exit,
"How strange!" said Steele, "I.
wonder how they got there"? '
"That's what I'vejjeen wondering
too," said the -reporter.
"Let's go down and look at that
door," said Steele.
The reporter and the manager
went to the. shipping room, and there
Steele gazed - in mingled awe and
wonder at ;the door arid "its strange
signs. One, imagined he never had .
dreariied ftfsucn a door in his estab

"Strange, very strange;" he said.
