                                     A pitiful story
     Little Billy Amo, a clean-cut boy of 15 summers, is now being hosted at the police                              Forest Hill United Methodist Church
station. This is the lad’s reward after a train trip from Chicago followed by a couple of                           551 Gibson Ave., Services 9 AM Sundays
weeks of wandering nearly penniless from San Francisco southward to the Peninsula.                                    Rev. Richard Bowman, 831-372-7956
Here’s the boy’s story:
     After Billy’s father passed on (preceded by Billy’s mother), the boy was tempo-                                        Pacific Coast Church
rarily taken in hand by a middle-aged aunt, Mrs. Hilda Fisher, who lives in Chicago.                                   522 Central Avenue, 831-372-1942
Soon enough, Mrs. Fisher tired of playing the role of mom and decided to send the
                                                                                                                          Peninsula Christian Center
youngster as far away as possible. After deciding that San Francisco would do nicely,
Mrs. Fisher purchased a coach-class ticket and gave it, along with $1.50, to the boy.                                    520 Pine Avenue, 831-373-0431
She had told Billy that he would be met in San Francisco by Joe McKenzie, a building                                 First Baptist Church of Pacific Grove
contractor who had been an acquaintance of Billy’s dad in Chicago.                                                     246 Laurel Avenue, 831-373-0741
     Alas, when Billy arrived in San Francisco no one met him at the depot. The boy
waited all night long, sleeping fitfully on a station bench, until he was evicted by a                            St. Mary’s-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church
station bull. 2 Billy set out to see if he could find Mr. McKenzie, whom he had met                               Central Avenue & 12th Street, 831-373-4441
back east and felt he could recognize. His wanderings were without fruit, until the boy
was told that several construction engineers had headed south to the areas of Monterey                                  Community Baptist Church
and Pacific Grove where there was some construction on a new railroad. Billy climbed                                Monterey & Pine Avenues, 831-375-4311
aboard an empty freight car and headed south, where he spent the remainder of his
money on a last meal of gruel.
                                                                                                                          Peninsula Baptist Church
     After spending the next two days without food, Billy spotted a constable and turned                              1116 Funston Avenue, 831-394-5712
himself in. He hoped to gain police assistance in locating the missing Joe McKenzie.                                    St. Angela Merici Catholic Church
The constable treated the boy to a meal and then put him up on a cot in the police sta-
tion. The boy stated that these humble quarters were far superior to those of his past                                     146 8th Street, 831-655-4160
few days and nights. A wire was sent to the aunt, but no reply came back. The name                         Christian Church Disciples of Christ of Pacific Grove
“Joe McKenzie” became the object of a search of telephone records, but without luck.                                 442 Central Avenue, 831-372-0363
One source of information, however, said that he had met a Joe McKenzie in Alaska,
where the man had gone to strike his fortune.                                                                                First Church of God
     Meanwhile, Billy Amo is the boy without a home, spending his nights sleeping                                      1023 David Avenue, 831-372-5005
upon a police station cot. Does anyone have any information about the building con-
tractor, Joe McKenzie? Your editor and others, especially Billy Amo, would certainly                                 Jehovah’s Witnesses of Pacific Grove

chased a male “talking” parrot from a sailor in port. She soon confronted the sailor
to complain of the parrot’s foul language. She said that each time she tried to get the                         Central Presbyterian Church of Pacific Grove
bird to speak, he cursed her. The sailor said: “Well, don’t be blaming the bird, ma’am.                              325 Central Avenue, 831-375-7207

Can’t afford a Bugatti? At least you can dress like a Bugatti owner. For two days,
automobile afficionados shopped for automobilia — posters, classes, shirts,
models, name it— at the Embassy Suites, and all to benefit the
Monterey Rape Crisis Center. The event, in its 10th year of being held during
Auto Week on the Monterey Peninsula, featured more than 40 vendors and a
silent auction.

     We, of course, picked up a copy of the Cedar Street Times to see what was hap-

        The other big winner was the Dewey Decimal System because the summer
  program was designed to encourage the reviewers to read across the library’s col-
  lection by choosing a book from each Dewey section (000-generalities, 100-Phi-
  losophy and Psychology, 200-Religion, 300-Social Science, 400-Language,
  500-Science, 600-Technology, 700-The Arts, 800-Literature, 900-Geography and
  History, and Fiction). Discussion at the reception centered around the 57 books
  reviewed and the bene-fits of reading outside your preferred genre or subject field.
        The reviews will be available at the reference desk for your browsing pleasure
  and future book club ideas. Thank you to all our wonderful reviewers.
