O'Leary Has New
T'ire and Wheel but
He Can't Use Them
The lpk of the Irish and the de-
mands of Uncle Sam's armed forces
combined to give Jim O'Leary, a
Michigan Union employe, the biggest
headache of his life yesterday.
O'Leary, the son of Deputy Sheriff
James O'Leary, received a call to
service two weeks ago and will leave
for the Army shortly. Sunday he
opened the trunk of his car and found
that some kindly soul had left him
a Plymouth wheel and an almost-
new inner tube. Now young O'Leary
is tormented by the thought of how
many more miles that new tire would
take him were he going to be around
to enjoy it.
Though the discovery was reported
to the police, the tube and wheel still
wait for their owner tq claim them.
Young Jim O'Leary would be mighty
happy if someone would take them
out of his sight.
