Download PDF for this date

On behalf of the newsboys of Toronto, David Croll, Minister of Welfare and Municipal Affairs of the Province of Ontario, yesterday was presented a gold pen and pencil set by Charles Ring of the Newsboys Association.

“I thought that when I became a politician the newsboys would disown me,” said the Minister, himself a former newsboy. “I’m glad they haven’t.”

The presentation was made at the carnival of the Lions’ Clubs of Toronto at Hanlan’s Point.
