Hot Topic #4 – V33-37
Four high schools boys were late to their morning classes one day. They entered the classroom and told their teacher that they were detained due to a flat tire and not to any type of joy-riding or other activities associated with trying to get to school.
The teacher of these 4 fine students smiled knowingly and said, “You know you missed a test this morning but I’m willing to let you make it up if you can answer one question.” “Sure”, the students replied.
I read an article in the online edition of the Evening Leader, which is the local St. Marys daily newspaper. This article was talking about the history of the “hobo” in the St. Marys, Ohio area. Now some of you might not know what a hobo is/was. Back in the 1930’s through about the 1950’s in this area there was a traveling group of men that moved from place to place seeking work. Their main mode of transportation was the railroad that ran through the heart of town.
They would hop on the trains and go from place to place to work and earn a little money to go to the next place. They would establish hobo villages if you could call them that. They were more accurately places they would congregate for protection from the weather and to share their stories with one another. It was quite an interesting article.
