‘UNCLE BOB’ LIKES UPS AND DOWNS He’s Had Some Real Thrills in Elevator, Too. How would you like to go through life with each day’s happening* Just a series of ups and downs. One man In particular In Indianapolis does Just this thing, makes a living .by It and enjoys the routine. This man Is “Uncle Bob” Bailey, one of the elevator men at the Indiana state capltol. “Uncle Bob" has been on duty at the statehouse elevator for about fourteen years, and In all this time he has had many experiences, some humorous and some exciting. And In addition to being an eleva tor man, “Uncle Bob” serves as a bureau of information for many tourists and sightseers at the capltol. HE'S REGULAR INFORMATION BUREAU. “Do I have to answer questions?* he commented In response to a query. “People come to me for everything from a birth certificate to a burial permit. “Not so long ago a couple came to me and wanted to get married. “This was anew one on me, but I did my best to set them happily on their way. “I sent them to the courthouse for their marriage license and in the meanwhile scurried about the statehouse In search of a minister. “I found one. and when they came back, the preacher married them, and I had two more ‘satisfied customers.’ “My experiences are not always funny, though. “I remember one time there were three women and three little children got on the elevator wanting to go to the museum. “That was when the museum was on the fourth floor. WOMAN GRABS HIM BY THROAT. “When I closed the dpor and started up one of the women grabbed me about the neck and began to choke and scratch me. "She was screaming at the top of her voice, and I did not dare to take them on up for fear she would Jump over the banister when 6he got out. so I returned to the main floor. “After it was all over I learned that the woman had not been out of an In sane asylum very long, and when she saw the hars on the elevator door, she Im agined she was being led Into a trap to be seat back to the asylum.” Uncle Bob has been on the elevator during the sessions of many legislatures, and probably has as large an acquaint ance with persons throughout the state as any man In Indiana. He is always ready each morning with a cheery “Good morning.” and his Jolly nature makes his elevator one of the bright spots of the statehouse. Mrs. Samuel M.
