EVANSTON, Ill., Jan. 27 (AP) Archie Harrison found himself in a woeful state, and telephoned the police.
I have, he hollered, a large sum of money, and I want a big police guard.
The pride of the force were dispatched and escorted him to his abode.
By the way, said Sergeant Ben Hanke, how much are you holding?
Archie produced a ring with a bunch of keys.
Thats a good one on me, he said, I thought it was money.
He laughed heartily, and the disgusted law tossed him into the bastile.
