Life Hereabouts by Charlie Humes

Down Memory Lane with that Old Gang of Yours… in a few of the years when Our Town was as good a sport town as any in the land… from the time that Taylor and Gunnis promoted fights through the years to Roxey Allen… Mickey Blair… Eddie Chaney… Shamus Maguire… Pee Wee Ross… Jackie Hindle… Watson Finch… Georgie Abner… Nick Nicholas… Dixie Allen…

Camden firemen and policemen paid their final respects to stout-hearted Jack Airedale yesterday. The beloved mascot of Headquarters Fire Company, Fifth and Arch streets, whose life was crushed out under the wheels of truck No. 2, his own wagon, Monday, was accorded a hero's funeral. His body was interred in teh cemetary at the rear of St. Paul's and the First Baptist churches, close by his fire station home, and taps were sounded at 5p.m., just as the sun was setting in the west.
