E-mail permission was granted to reprint the following K1JWL
(Phil) story:
Pse refer to 36FORD.JPG.
                                                 18 April 1996

Once upon a time Oxford's Spinney family was on a trip to visit
"Ken's brother" in Canton. Their auto was a 1936 Ford 4-door
sedan, black in color, equipped with what were known as "suicide
doors" due to being hinged at the rear.

Heading east on Route 20 in Auburn just beyond the Route 12
junction suddenly from the back seat Gerry shouted, "Phil is
gone!"  Five or six-year-old Phil, a budding experimenter, had
unlatched his rear door while under way; it was snapped fully
open by forward motion and the youngster was cast up onto the
bank beside the highway. The sleeve of his Chesterfield overcoat
had caught on the door handle. The following driver stopped

Dr. Hale was not in his office so Dr. Fletcher was found. Phil
was pronounced uninjured and the second trip was uneventful.

Shortly after 1000 your shaggy editor found a "closed" sign in
the window of "Fast Fingers" Freddie's barber shop.  Fortunately
the Mrs. VVS had informed me of another shop on the Dudley line.
A lady in a gas station directed me to Peewee's in the same
building as Sandi's Restaurant.  This gentleman has been a barber
in Webster for 40 years and does not wear earrings, as we might
A 3-oz can of "Qwikboost" was "charged" to the otw A/C which has
been converted to R-134 refrigerant.  Judging by its effect the
only boost was to the accounts of the manufacturer and its
distribution chain..
