“Girls, As Boys, Eat Newsboy Turkey”

Superintendent Rudolph Heig of the Brace Memorial Newsboys’ Lodging House, at No. 14 New Chambers street, had charge of a dinner for two thousand newsboys yesterday. Several Cherry Hill girls, in boys’ attire, were found at the tables. They told Superintendent Heig they had been playing vagabond all day and, being hungry, went to the dinner as newsboys. They were allowed to continue at the feast. The food left when the newsboys were full was given to five hundred hungry men from Park Row lodging houses.
