Newsies

Somebody ought to write a musical about those kids.

Newark Evening News

We had it delivered every afternoon throughout the '50's and into the '60's--a great local paper, and a mainstay of my youth that got me interested in reading newspapers, besides having the comics I loved. I remember a daily feature on the front page --"The Toll"--showing the number of Americans who died in traffic accidents year-to-date. Rather frightening. Wonder if I'm related to any of those boys??
