The once genial ticket chopper nt one
of the West Philadelphia Matlons of the

said. "I can't recognize more thnn one

A casual glance nt tho men surging
from the subway stations this morning
confirmed the statements of the ticket
chopper. All West Philadelphia seems to
need a shave. Soma of the men spent i
too much time over tne after-dinner
cigar, rushed out frantically at one min
