302 South State Street

F ORTY miles from "The Motor
City", a little shop on Ann Ar-
bor's Ann St. goes about its busi-
ness as if Henry Ford had never
blacksmiths are all out of business
slower, but they went surer. They
been bon,
"Please shut the door and buy
5A horseblankets," a sign instructs
all customers.
D. J. Malloy, the white-haired,
straight-backed owner of the har-
ness shop, doesn't insist on either
point any more. He works on a
saddle, puts coal on the Frank-
lin stove, operates the creasing
machine, and occasionally demon-
strates a horsewhip to an inter-
ested University student.
"A lot of the college boys buy
them," he says. "They like to fool
around with them. Use these on
some of these kids nowadays--
might do some good."
MALLOY'S FATHER started the
shop in 1891. They switched
locations several times, but-in 5905
moved back to Ann and have been
there ever since, "It'll be 50 years
in May, ever since I was knee high
to a grasshopper."
Business isn't what it used to be.
Golfbags, luggage, razor strops,
punching bags, basketballs, and
even a few saddles and harnesses
from rural customers occupy most
of Malloy's day.
"'Bout the last horses around
here were at the Dairy. Of course,
they won't let you keep horses in
town anymore, but they'll always
be some horses no matter how
many trucks they get. But the
blacksmiths are alil out of business
now. A lot are in welding.
"I keep busy most of the time.
Some jobs are nicer than others,
and I suppose if you don't have a
bad one once in a while you don't
appreciate the good ones,"
Malloy commented on the "row
after row of good looking cars" in
Detroit. "I'd rather have a buggy
than a car anytime. Horses went
slower but they went surer. They
make the cars now so a mats
hasn't got any control over them.
"It isn't safe to get on the road
with a buggy today, with all those
reckless birds on the road. They'd
try to run into you. One-third of
them shouldn't be allowed to drive.
Trouble is they get in accidents."
MALLOY didn't notice his small
clock, tuckey away in a corner.
He told of. a doctor friend of his
who long ago predicted that "state-
buggies""would cause a high inci-
dence of heart failure. "It's poison-
ous gas we're breathing and we're
living so fast. I think that's what
does it." ,
