Visit to Mother Born In Trailer Paid By Stork Richmond, Ind., March 10 (AP)
—The stork flew rapidly toward a trailer west of here yesterdav, and Dr. F. E. Keith suggested to Mrs. Joseph Oaks that she go to a hospital.
"I should say not," replied Mrs. Oaks. "I was born in a trailer myself, and I got along perfectly well."
There was nothing for Dr. Keith to do but have the stove moved out of the trailer to gain working room. Soon a baby boy was born.
The proud father had to do his pacing outside on the ground.
The Oaks promptly laid claim for the first "second generation trailer birth."
Mother and son were reported "doing nicely" today.
