The girls went to the ladies room and the guys didn't have much money left. A pack of cigarettes cost 16 cents, but one needed to put two dimes in the machine.

     During his wake at Kelly-Brennan Funeral Home on Baldwin Street, members of the Waterbury Elks Club filed in and recited the following:

11 O'Clock Toast:

"You have heard the tolling of 11 strokes. This is to remind us that with Elks, the hour of 11 has a tender significance. Wherever Elks may roam, whatever their lot in life may be, when this hour falls upon the dial of night, the great heart of Elkdom swells and throbs. It is the golden hour of recollection, the homecoming of those who wander, the mystic roll call of those who will come no more. Living or dead, Elks are never forgotten, never forsaken. Morning and noon may pass them by, the light of day sink heedlessly in the West, but ere the shadows of midnight shall fall, the chimes of memory will be pealing forth the friendly message, 'To our absent members.56'"
